Technique Junkies March Release Bu

Happy March Release Day!

I am designing with the talented ladies of Technique Junkies this month and we have new stamps in the store. Click here to check them out https://techniquejunkies.com

I have two cards to share today using some of the new stamps. For my first card I used Old Fashioned Roses


This background stamp is just beautiful! I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and then colored with my Zig markers. I heat embossed the sentiment, from the set Sentimental Sayings, onto a piece of vellum and then wrapped around my card panel. I layered this panel onto a black cardstock mat and then added to a blue card base,

For my next card I used Bad Decisions

I stamped the image, masking off the sentiment, with Stazon black ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor cardstock. I then colored with my Zig markers and then trimmed the panel. Next I cut a card base out of kraft cardstock and then added a panel of DCWV gauze cardstock in purple. Next I added a panel that I created with yupo paper and alcohol inks. I then added my panel with the image. Now I masked the lady part of the image and inked the sentiments and stamped on a piece of Kraft cardstock and then fussy cut into strips and added to my card using dimensonals.

Love The Simple ThingsĀ 

Good morning! I hope you had a good weekend. A few of my girlfriends and myself went to a stamp show in Westminster MD. I love going to these events and learning about new companies and their products. One of the companies I came across was Technique Junkies and oh my was I so excited!! Their stamps are amazing and priced so well. 

We have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper this week.  The inspiration is Watercolor 


I was excited to use one of the background stamps I purchased from the Technique Junkies booth at the stamp show! Here is the card I created 


I started my card with a Basic Black card base and then added layers of Only Orange and Basic Black. For the main layer I used a piece of Canson Watercolor cardstock and stamped the Technique Junkies Poppies background Stamp in Stazon black ink. I watercolored the whole background using Tim Holtz Scattered Straw and then highlighted the flowers with Ripe Persimmon and Abandoned Coral. After that dried I applied distress Stickles to the flower centers. While that was drying I stamped the sentiment from the Unity set Head Up-Heart Strong on a piece of white cardstock and then backed that on a piece of black cardstock and added to my card using dimensionals. 

Needless to say I am now addicted to Technique Junkies stamps!! If you haven’t ever seen them go check it out here http://techniquejunkies.com/

Until next time 

Happy Crafting šŸ™‚
