Technique Junkies August Blog Hop!

It’s August 1st and that means it’s time for the Technique Junkie Design Team’s  blog hop showcasing the new Technique Junkies stamps for August 2016.

Pat is offering 15% off all August Release Stamps for one week!  WooHoo!  So stop by all the design team’s blogs for great ideas and samples of other new August Release stamps  you can find in the Technique Junkies Store.

My first card uses the Metallic Magic Technique from December 2002 for the background.   I then ran it through a We R Memory Keepers Geometric folder and used the new “Grand Greetings Set of 5 for my sentiment on gold My Favorite Things card stock.  These new release sentiments are perfect for card fronts.

My second card uses the “180 Degree Technique from Bodacious Backgrounds CD” with the “Hipster Cats #S718” stamp. The inks were Hero Arts Cup of Joe and Sand.  The sentiment isn’t a new release, but a great Technique Junkies stamp called, “Better Things SDX063” which I heat embossed with Liquid Platinum powder.

My next card uses two techniques.  The background is “Marbling Rainbow from April/May 2004” and the focal image featuring the gorgeous “Horse #SD706” stamp uses “Polished Mulberry from June 2003 Newsletter”.  The marbling was done with reinkers and alcohol.  My sentiment is another new August release called, “Move Your Soul SDX082”.

August-Horse

My final card  uses the “Marbled Smooch Technique from October/November 2010 Newsletter featuring “Just Look Up SD722”. He’s simply stamped on the background and colored with metallic gel pens.  I added stars from My Favorite Things Dies and finished off with Wink of Stella.

Cards in Envy Challenge: Wings

Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge .  This week our theme is “Wings.”  This can be anything with wings such as butterflies, dragonflies, birds, angels, etc.

As a reminder, Cards in Envy asks that your card fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple.

For today’s card I used a fun technique from a tutorial CD called “Bodacious Backgrounds” by Technique Junkies called, 180 degree stamping.  The stamp is also by Technique Junkies called, Vintage Butterfly Collection,” with a great sentiment called, “Forever and a Day” which I heat embossed with silver powder.

Hope you like it and enter a card with us at Cards in Envy!   Where will your wings take you today???
