Technique Junkies – Shimmering Birch

The Crafty Nurse here with more inspiration using the September Technique Junkies release.

I simply stamped “Birches #S686″ and splattered Art Anthology Shimmering Minx Inks in Radiance and Decadent. It’s hard to tell in the picture but these are wonderfully sparkly and really make your project shine. My leaf is the Grand Maple Die from Simon Says Stamp that was the negative piece from another card I’ll be showcasing on the Technique Junkies blog later this month.

Stop by Technique Junkies store to pick up some great supplies for your inky pleasure!

Technique Junkies – Pear Minx

Kathy, The Crafty Nurse here today with more Technique Junkies inspiration using “Fanciful Fruit – Set of 2#SS057” from the August release.

The background is the result of playing with both Minx and Art Anthology products.  The Minx colors used was the white called “Immaculate” and the orange called, “Radiance”.   The Art Anthology Sorbet I used was “Vegas Gold” which I ran through with a texture comb.

I heat embossed the pear from “Fanciful Fruit” with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and clear powder.  I also spayed it with Gilded Gold Colorations and placed the whole thing over some torn mulberry.

Sure hope you find some time to get your fingers inky today and I’ll see you later on this month for more junkie goodness.

See you then!

Technique Junkies March Blog Hop!

It’s the first of the month and that means it’s time for a Technique Junkies Blog Hop showcasing the new March release!  The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team  will provide an amazing  selection of inspiration for your enjoyment.  I know I have said this before, but WOW, this release has got to be one of the best yet.  Amazing Pat, you have completely outdone yourself.

Pat is again offering 15% off all March Release Stamps for one week! Also, if you haven’t tried the new Minx Shimmer Ink you are missing out on some fabulous inky goodness.  In addition to the Minx, Technique Junkies has other great art supplies like stencils, art anthology colorations, velvets, and sorbets to help you on your creative journey.

The background on my first card uses “180 Degree Stamping from the Bodacious Bacground CD.  I stamped the new Palettini image called, Vintage Butterfly Collection #PO35″ using AlteNew dusk and Ocean Waves crisp ink. The focal image is “Veiled Woman #SD658” stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I also added “Black Leather Jacket” Dimensional Sorbet to her hat and coat for shine.  The sentiment is “Classy & Fabulous SDX070.”

March Butterflies-Veiled

My next card features the new stamp, “Whimsical World #S634” using a version of “Stained Resist Technique in the Artistic Effects CD.”   Instead of Distress Stains, I used the new Minx Shimmer Inks I talked about above in Bankroll, Decadent, and Panache.  You can’t really appreciate how shimmery they are in real life.  I finished the card by die cutting several Lawn Fawn stitched frames and popping them up. 

March-Minx

My next card uses the Vintage Butterfly Collection #P035″ stamp with the background called, Irresistible Rainbow from Bodacious Background CD. The colors used were Blueprint Sketch, Lucky Clover, Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed, and Candy Apple Red.  They appear muted as the paper is glossy. The sentiment is “Kindness Matters SDX026.”  In this technique, you should see a ghosting of the initial Versamark stamping, however, my pad was dry, so it isn’t as apparent, but I’m still was happy with the final outcome.

March-Rainbow Butterflies

My next card is another Palettini Collection stamp called “French Bicycle Collage #P037.”  For this card I used the “Big Bold Blending technique from “Bodacious Background CD.”  I then inked around the edges with Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Inks and gave additional texture using the scoring board.  My sentiment is Tim Holtz letters edged with distress ink and adhered with Tombo Mono glue.
