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.

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”

The Crafty Nurse here with some Autumn splendor using gold foiling. I have a great kit from Indigo Blu, but any sticky glue and foil will do.
Supplies: A Colorful Life’s “Square Fade Stencil”, Delicata Gold Ink, My Favorite Things Flag Die, Flitter Glu, Tricolor foil, Distress Ink.
I love an interesting background and often just try things to see how they work. The base layer of cardstock is colored using extra Distress ink I “mopped up” from my craft mat using a baby wipe and pouncing it on card stock. The next layer is the gorgeous Delicata Gold ink on black card stock using the very detailed Autumn Set of 6 set. For the focal image, I started with more of the mopped up ink then over that I stenciled the Square Fade stencil using a light touch and making sure to heat set. I then stamped the pine cone using Flitterglu and foiled.
I began by embossing Star Collage with Distress embossing powder in Frayed Burlap. I then used my MISTI to stamp the Rustic Pine stamp over the top giving a cool background. My sentiment is heat embossed using Simple Sentiments 3a and I broke out my old postage scissors to cut the edges.
Sure hope you find some time to get your fingers inky today!

Now let’s get on to the inspiration. This stamp is perfect for both cards and art journal pages. I began by stamping “star collage” using the “Distressed Stain Direct” tutorial from the Bodacious Background CD which is on sale for $4.95. I then stamped “star collage” again on grey card stock and sprayed with Distress Mica in silver. I then cut out the stars using the My Favorite Things stitched star die and popped that up over the first panel. My sentiment was embossed.
