Joyeux Noel As the Technique Junkies celebrate the 30 Days of Christmas, we are seeing lots of fantastic work from Pat and her design team.

I used Triple the Fun found here. The technique is very easy and fun to do. Last year I made all of my Christmas cards using this technique and the card below is what I made.
Don’t they look so different with traditional and non traditional colours. Which one is your favourite? Mine is the non traditional colours.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hello folks. Are you filled with as much Christmas spirit as I am? After making two styles of Christmas cards (this was one of them), I realized 35 cards wasn’t enough so off I am to make 20 more of these Santa cards this evening.
Right now all Christmas stamps are 25% off until December 15th. You can see all the Christmas stamps here. Technique Junkies is having the 30 days of Christmas where a new card is made by Pat and the design team for 30 days which runs through to December 15th. You can see the cards on the Design Junkies blog.
Have a very nice day, and thank you for stopping by!
Hello fellow stampers. This was a very fun card to make as I did some experimenting with clear embossing powder with flecks of silver, which you will see better below. I had to take my card at this angle so you can see the beauty of the stamp itself.
This Technique Junkies background stamped called Pinecones really intrigued me and after pondering what I was going to do to showcase its’ beauty, I settled on taking a finger dauber and I inked up the pine needles in SU’s Old Olive and sponged the pinecones with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. Next, I lightly spritzed the stamp with water to reactivate the ink and quickly stamped it out on vanilla cardstock.
After the image dried, I covered the card front with VersaMark and then sprinkled Tsukinek #06 Sparkle over top and heat embossed. You can see the sparkle below.
All Christmas stamps are 25% off from November 15 to December 15th.
The last step was to stamp out All is Calm in black, then it was cut with an oval scallop die and sponged the edges using Old Olive.
Thank you for stopping by. You truly made my day!
Hello folks! Dare you do something wild? Al and I did by putting up our Christmas tree last night. This is the earliest we’ve put it up, but the Christmas season is so short and the tree makes me happy.
Now onto my card. I stamped out Poppy from Technique Junkies on Copic paper and coloured it with my Copic markers. Poppys are not always red. If you google poppies you will see a wide variety of colours. My sentiment comes from Things I want to do and is an all time favourite. It has so many cute sayings.
For this card I used the Dylusions Resist Technique for my border and it came from the Technique Junkie Newsletter in the April 2014 issue.
Have a great day, and enjoy the warm weather because snow will be here before we know it.

Had a blast at Al’s daughter’s house for a Halloween party. Julie outdid herself with the decorations as you will see.
Urggggg, I’ve got a lass who can read fortunes. Those who had their fortunes read were told they had a short life span and they were going to die, then I ran my sword through them!
All the gold and jewellry a pirate can hold.
What was left of one trick or treater.
Going to sea mate?
Taking this lass out to sea.
The wolf coming the rescue
Urggg. It’s out to sea with you. Bring the drink.
Watch out for scurvy about the ship.
Welcome fellow Technique Junkies, friends and stampers. Today is the new November release day, and the last for 2016, and I can’t tell you how much fun I had making these cards. I challenged myself to stick to blue as my focal colour scheme.
NOTE THAT ALL NOVEMBER RELEASE STAMPS ARE 15% OFF UNTIL NOVEMBER 8TH. THE DISCOUNT WILL SHOW UP IN YOUR SHOPPING CART.
You won’t want to miss out on all the delightful cards on this hop, so please start at Design Junkies blog if you haven’t already. If you came from Ro Donner’s blog, you’re certainly on the right track. Ro is new to the team and what a creative stamper she is. So glad to have Ro on board.
For my first card I used Wonderful World which is one of my all time favourites by Louis Armstrong. The flower is hand punched and then run through the Cuttlebug to give it some dots. It has three layers.
For my next card, I used the background stamp called Teatime and the focal image used Like a Teacup. I’m a die hard coffee drinker at work, but I love to come home to a big mug of tea while I’m knitting or colouring in front of the TV.
For this card my background was created by using the Technique Blended Stains which can be found on the Artistic Effects CD.
For my last card, using Country Church, I wanted a winter theme. First, I masked the moon, and then sponged several blues over top of my white embossing. This card is so much nicer in real life. In fact, I’m going to make 30 more of them to use as my Christmas cards.
Now it’s on to Pam DeChellis’ blog where you will find some more cool inspiration.
Technique Junkies will be having the 30 Days of Christmas beginning November 15th and will run through until December 15th. You will see Pat’ work and the Design Team’s work, all using Christmas stamps, or stamps that can be turned into a Christmas card or project.
Hello folks. Autumn is upon us so I thought I’d crack out my new-to-me Darice embossing folder which I paired with the Stained Embossing Technique from Technique Junkies Artistic Effects CD. Find Our Way seemed to be an appropriate stamp to use among the swirls of leaves on a brisk autumn day. My matt cardstock is from Paper Garden.ca (link is in my shopping links).
I had so much fun using this technique that I created a second card, which is a little less conventional because I rubbed Stampin” Up! blue Marina Mist over my embossing folder. Personally, I live being unconventional and a little outside the box with my work.
I find this sentiment, from Partners in Crime, to be very funny and couldn’t resist pairing it with Owls. My clouds, behind the owls, were created by using a handmade cloud template and sponging ink over top.
Hope you have a nice day and take the time to enjoy the autumn leaves that are changing colour.
Thanks for stopping by my friends.

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it’s time to think Christmas. I seriously need to kick butt this year and get started on my cards. I made three of these cards which are so much prettier in real life.
To create my background I used the Grunged Stencil technique found on the Technique Junkie Sensational Stencils CD. Through my stencil I sponged on Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint. Next, I heat embossed a turquoise powder to coordinate with my Salty Ocean. I added pink Washi tape and Stampn Up white pearls.
Have you started on your Christmas cards?

Hello fellow stampers and friends. Here, in Canada, we just celebrated Thanksgiving, and as luck would have it, I had the Sunday off so I got to spend it with my cousins, niece, nephew, aunt and uncle who live two hours away. Because I’m working 3-11 this week, we were able to stay for the day and for supper because I could sleep in on Monday before heading to work.
Using the Warhol style as my inspiration, I coloured my cats different colours. You can see three Warhol style tutorials if you visit the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I used Hipster Cats background and couldn’t resist using I’m Confused with it. Can you see the sparkle I added to the red glasses?
This was a fun card to make. I love to sit in front of the TV and catch up on my taped shows while colouring.
Have a great week.
