The House That Stamps Built; Designer Choice Challenge

It’s the second Wednesday of January and that means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built!  Today, I’m the host and have chosen the theme of “Winter Wonderland.”  Here in Virginia it’s finally getting cold enough to call it winter.  Moving from New York, it’s nice not to be buried in the snow!

As a reminder, we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store for our random winner.  Don’t forget, if you use a RI stamp, you get an extra entry!

For my “Winter Wonderland”  card, I played with Mega Flakes by Indigo Blu.  I started by stamping Repeat Impressions, “Snowflake Solid, Lg. 8912-I,” “Snowflake Solid, 8914-E”, and “Snowflakes 8805-K” with Flitterglu.   I then applied the flakes and burnished off.  My sentiment, “Let it Snow 2006-H,” is gold heat embossed and edged with gold foil tape.  I finished off the project with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Scintillating Silver Spray.  

Winter Wonderland

I look forward to seeing what your “Winter Wonderland” cards look like at The House that Stamps Built.  Happy Wednesday!  I also hope you’ve checked out my Project of the Week from Monday using the Herringbone Technique.

Technique Junkies – More June Release Fun

Hello fellow Junkies!  Today I’m taking another journey to the beach with the June Technique Junkies release.  Today I focused on the image called, “Seahorse”  which has great detail.

I used the “Pasted Resist” technique from the Sensational Stencils CD. I began by stamping the image with Archival Ink then topped with translucent embossing paste.  Once dry, I inked over the image and paste with distress inks and framed it with gold foil tape.

I think the next time I do this I will mask off the seahorse so that image stands out more.  But inky play is all about having fun and learning, right?  You could either use liquid frisket, rubber cement, or a paper mask though I’d lean toward the liquid frisket.

For the background, I sprayed Lindy’s Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mists and embossed with Tim Holtz “Bubble” Stencil.  I finished off with brown ribbon and called it done.

June Paste & InkIf you haven’t yet checked out the June release stamps, come on over to the new Technique Junkies store.  In addition to stamps, Pat has added lots of other mediums, stencils, and other inky goodness.  See you there!

Exploring Art Journaling 4: Day 3 – Molding Paste & Ink Sprays

4 - Day 4; Molding Paste & Dylusions

Today’s page for Exploring Art Journaling 4; Day 4, was supposed to use molding paste and Dylusion’s Sprays.  I wanted a some sparkle, so I broke out my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays.  I started the page with some molding paste in a chevron stencil, then turned the page on it’s side and sprayed the edge with water, followed by several colors of the Lindy’s.  I broke out my VERY OLD Heidi Swapp HUGE flowers from my stash and applied them with gel medium.  The centers are from last classes newsprint pages with gems and pearls around the edges.  The stems are silver foil tape, which you really can’t appreciate in the picture. I used some other stencils, some bubble wrap, and some molotow markers to fancy the page up.  One of the great things about art journaling is using your older stuff.  Can’t say I’d ever use these flowers on a scrapbook page, but I like them here on this journalling page.
