Technique Junkies May Release Blog Hop!

Happy May 1st!  It’s time for another Technique Junkies Blog Hop. For this hop, we are celebrating the new May Release at the Technique Junkies Store.

Pat is offering 15% off all May Release Stamps for one week!  I’ve also got a discount code: TJ10Kathy, that can be used for anything else in the store when you are shopping. WooHoo!

The Technique Junkies team is growing and we are thrilled to have added several new team members to the group.  Please stop by all the design team’s blogs for great samples of the other new May Release stamps.

My first card uses two of the new May release stamps:

  1. “Pocket Watches #S703”
  2. “Hat’s Off To Dad #SD792”

Technique:  Sparkling Resist June/July 2009 – Subscriber Pages

  • Stamp “Pocket Watches” with Hero Arts Soft Brown Shadow Ink. Let dry and dust with anti-static bag
  • Surgically alter (i.e. cut apart) “Hat’s off To Dad” so that you have isolated just the hats.  Don’t be afraid, you can always place back together if needed.
  • Stamp “Hat’s Off To Dad” in a row using Versamark Ink and clear heat emboss
  • Apply darker ink over entire card base – I used Frayed Burlap. This allows for the stamp below to shine beautifully through.
  • Using Misti position “Hat’s Off To Dad” sentiment onto card stock. I used distress markers to isolate the different parts of the stamp. Using the Misti allows for repeat coverage needed when using distress markers. Once well inked, now apply Versamark ink and clear heat emboss. That allows you to ink over entire image and not ruin the sentiment

__________________________

My second card features the same two stamps in a similar idea using translucent paste and stencils.

Stamps:

  1. “Pocket Watches #S703”
  2. “Hat’s Off #SD792”
  3. “Happy Father’s Day SDX089”

Technique:   Pasted Resist from the Sensational Stencils CD

  • Stamp “Pocket Watches” with Hero Arts Soft Sand Shadow Ink.
  • Over the top, apply translucent modeling paste through “Stonework Stencil” from a Colorful Life and let dry
  • Spray entire card with Bronze Distress Mica Spray and gently wipe off to reveal sparkle
  • Fussy Cut “Hat’s Off To Dad” and apply with foam tape
  • Stamp sentiment “Happy Father’s Day” on card stock you have lightly sprayed or inked through stencil to add texture – distress edges and mat card.

____________________________

My third card switches gears for a more feminine card using Perfect Pearls, which is hard to see in this photo but is so wonderfully shimmery.

Stamps:

  1. “Lollipop Flowers SD768”
  2. “Beautiful Ride SDX 091”

Technique: Faux Canvas from Emboss or Die CD (which is on a deep sale).

__________________________

My final card is plays with a little hand doodling and some straight forward stamping.

Stamp: “Own Kind of Beautiful SDX077”

  • Cut 4 x 5.25 inch card panel out of Club Scrap textured card stock then die cut using My Favorite Things Frame Die.
  • Use stamp positioner and stamp “Own Kind of Beautiful” in the center
  • Hand Doodle around edges
  • Die Cut WPlus9 flowers from Love Mom collection and add sparkles on top
  • Splatter ink, I used Liquitex Ink in Carbon Black.
  • Color in heart with Wink of Stella silver

  2. Wow, wow, wow!!!! What an incredible job you did with the resist techniques on your first two cards! The Perfect Pearls truly set off the lollipop flowers so wonderfully. Great doodling on the last card, it truly pops the sentiment perfectly. I’m always so impressed and inspired by your work, my friend. Great cards!

  3. Wow, once again you impress me with how creative you get. Your work is so versatile and outstanding. You have me looking at sentiments a little differently pairing Life is Beautiful with your flowers. I have a hard time thinking outside the box.
