Technique Junkies March Blog Hop!

It’s the first of the month and that means it’s time for a Technique Junkies Blog Hop showcasing the new March release!  The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team  will provide an amazing  selection of inspiration for your enjoyment.

Pat is again offering 15% off all March Release Stamps for one week! If you haven’t been over to the Technique Junkies store recently, there are a lot of great new stencils as well as other great art supplies for your creative journey.

My first card today showcases my favorite stamp of the bunch simply called,  “Queen SD787”.  Using my Misti, I stamped her several times with Versafine Black Onyx ink and clear heat embossed her.  I then brought out some watercolors, specifically, the new Daniel Smith color called ” Purpurite Genuite – STUNNING.  I also used some Hematite for shading.  The background started with the new Jane Davenport papers that you can purchase from Michael’s put together using the “Tie it Together” technique from TJ December 2014 subscriber pages.

My next card features the new stamp, “We Pour #SD755” using a version of “Distressed Stained Dip Technique in the Artistic Effects CD.”   Instead of Distress Stains, I used traditional Distress Inks from the standard size pads and applied them to my craft mat.  This was actually the second generation, hence the lighter application.  The colors are Faded Jeans and Gathered Twigs.

My next card uses the “Sweet Baby Set of 4 #SS072” stamped with the background called, Gessstencil Crayons, also from the December 2014 TJ Subscriber pages.  My watercolor crayons are Neocolor II’s in a Yellow Green and Turquoise and stencil is a Tim Holtz design.  For the focal image, I did a some stitching around the sweet baby shoes because something about stitching and baby goes together for me.  I chose one of the three sentiments in this new set and added rub-on stitching to the edge of the card as well.  Perhaps this will bring my boys some inspiration to make me a grandmother!!

My final card showcases “Big Bunny #S685”  using “Antique Glimmers” technique from December 2009 Subscriber Pages.  It’s hard to pick up but he’s so shimmery.  My sentiment “Kindness Matters #SDx026” is perfect for this sweet bunny and so important to remember as we go through our day.

  2. Such fabulous work, Kathy. You always bring your cards to life. I like how you used purple to surround your lady figure. The stitching on your baby boot shoes is pretty cool.
