The Crafty Nurse here with more inspiration using the October Technique Junkies release. You have only a few days left to claim your 15% off discount on this new release for the holidays.
I started my card sing the Pasted Resist Technique from the Sensational Stencil CD found at Technique Junkies. I then sprayed with Art Anthology Colorations in Avocado, Leaf, and Sandcastle. So I didn’t cover all that gorgeous texture, I used only a portion of the “Baubles S713″ background stamp as a strip of interest then added another new October Release sentiment called, “Joyeux SDX087”. My red background was created by spraying Color Wash Spray in Red Pepper and a spritz of Dylusions White Linen spray for “snow”.
Stop by Technique Junkies store to pick up some great supplies for your inky pleasure! Don’t forget, we are also celebrating 30 Days of Christmas at the TJ Design Team Blog beginning on October 15th through November 15th. Hope you’ll join us.
It’s holiday time here at Technique Junkies and I know you are going to love what the design team has come up with. Don’t forget that Pat always provides a 15% discount and this month it’s extending through October 10th so stop by the Techniques Junkies Store to score your goodies. In addition to the stamps, the store is carrying stencils, art anthology colorations, and a variety of new dimensional mediums perfect for those who like to play with ink.
My first card features the gorgeous new stamp “Christmas Ornaments Trio Set of 9 #SS055”. Using a circle template I created multiple “bauble shapes” with Distress Inks in Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed, and Twisted Citron. Then, using my Misti tool, I stamped the star ornament in this set making sure to mask the tip so it didn’t overlap. I doodled an edge to frame it and used the Distressed Stain Embossing Technique from the Artistic Effects CD for my background. The sentiment is also from this set and goes perfectly with this ornament set.
My next card features a clean and simple card (which I hardly EVER do) using “Mistletoe #SD745” stamped repeatedly on the top of a card front. I colored the leaves with G94, YG03, and R59 Copic Markers, then Distressed the edge with Antique Linen. My sentiment is from “Christmas Ornaments Trio Set of 9 #SS055”
My next card features “Christmas Mug Shot #SD732” that I embossed in white over black card stock spritzed with Dylusions white spray. For the background, I white embossed “Baubles #S713” then sprayed the background with Art Anthology Colorations in Avocado, Siesta Key’s, and Fern Leaf.
