The Crafty Nurse here posting one of my all-time favorite holiday stamps for the 25th day of Technique Junkies 30 days of Christmas. Pat is offering 20% off all Christmas stamps during this celebration.
This is such an easily reproducible card especially when you use the MISTI.
Stamp: Christmas Dove
Technique: Heat embossed with Platinum embossing powder by Ranger.
We’d love to see you are making for this holiday season over at the Facebook Group.
Happy Monday! It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge. This week our theme is “Typography.” These are cards using letters, words, or sentiments as your focal image.
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 Ellen Hutson’s “Holly Jolly” stamp set for my “typography” element. The design paper is Fancy Pants “Wish Season” by Kim Watson. I stamped the snow bursts in Simon Say Stamp white pigment ink and topped them with Nuvo Crystal Drops. My flag dies are My Favorite Things and I finished off the card with some black Distress Ink.
Hope we’ll see your “Typography” cards over at the Cards in Envy challenge. You have until November 19th to enter.
I’m here today making beautiful music using the new “Torn Music Collage” stamp using Hero Arts “Wet Cement” repeatedly with the MISTI over woodgrain design paper until I got the depth I wanted. I then covered the entire piece with Art Anthology “Dazzle” to create a sparkly background. My sentiment, “Stay Humble” was stamped on the same design paper and embellished with stitching dies.

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.
