The Crafty Nurse here with some inspiration to spark your creative flow. Have you joined our monthly challenge? If not, we’d love to see your entries for prizes and you just may learn a new technique at the same time. You can find the challenge over on the sidebar of the Technique Junkies Blog.
We’d also love to see your cards and projects over at the new Technique Junkies Facebook Group.
Now let’s get on to the inspiration. Can you tell I love this background stamp? It’s got a vintage feel to me. This card uses a Distress paint resist technique that’s as easy as stamping with paint, drying and applying ink over the top to colorize. I also added Art Anthology “Dazzle” which is a great to add some pizazz and seals in any water-soluble inks.
Hey there Junkies!
The Crafty Nurse here with some mid-week inspiration using the lovely October release stamp, “Grace in Her Heart”. I stamped her on cardstock I colored with Copic markers and popped her up over cork. My background is the irResistable Stencils Tutorial from Artistic Effects CD.
Hello Junkies! I’m here today with a Technique Junkies October release stamp called “Grace in Her Heart #SD819”. I began my background using Distress Paints adapting the Distress Stain Dip Technique from Artistic Effects CD. I then ran it through an embossing folder for texture. My stamp is on kraft cardstock using Versfine Black Onyx ink.
I hope you find some time to get crafty today. We are all over at the Technique Junkies Facebook Page so if you haven’t stopped by, we’d love to see you! We also look forward to your entries in our monthly challenge over at the Design Team Blog.
Happy Monday! It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge. Our theme is “Let’s Play Dress Up” which means you can enter any card featuring Halloween Costumes.
The Cards in Envy challenge asks that your cards 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. You have until November 5th, to enter.
My card today features a digital image by Tiddly Inks which I colored with Copic Markers. The purple features RV99, V17, V15 & V12. The Hair is a unique combination is W9, R59, R56 and E97, a combination I learned from Alyce over at Kit & Clowder in her monthly coloring classes.
We look forward to your “Let’s Play Dress Up cards over at Cards in Envy!

I love this stamp. Matt is a math wizard and it’s perfect to encourage him while he’s busy at college.
The background was actually a happy accident while I was playing with Distress Paint. I had applied color randomly to my craft mat and got a very painterly background. I stamped “Scientific Computation” with silver Hero Arts ink, then clear heat embossed. My sentiment is from “Simple Sentiments #SS03A”
