Hello. Are you having a good week so far? I hope you have nice weather and have time to spend outdoors. After a long winter, we could use the change of pace.
Today’s card is for the In the Air challenge at Impression Obsession. I inked up my new stamp Dream Butterfly H1774 and used my tombow markers for the Blender Pen Technique from the June 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. My designer paper is hello luscious from BasicGrey.
Enjoy your week. I’m off to shoot some tutorials for the Technique Junkie Newsletter. Are you a subscriber yet?
Hello. Did my fellow Canadians enjoy the long weekend? I worked as I’m training on a new job. I left a Monday to Friday job to take a job that has 3-11 shifts and every other weekend. Call me crazy, but I’m going to like it. I’m going to be the hospital switchboard operator.
I did find time this weekend to work on this week’s TJ Technique of the week. The technique used came from the newest issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter and is called Distress Stain Watercolouring. Those who follow me will know how much I enjoy painting and colouring.
My image is one I haven’t used for a while and is from Penny Black.
Thank you for stopping by.
Good morning folks. Today I have a Designer Paper Starburst card to share with you. This technique can be found in the April 2013 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. For those of you who are subscribers you will notice that this is the technique of the week, so please don’t forget to share your work with us on our Yahoo group. Myoriah Beth, I’ll be expecting yours–LOL.
My designer paper is paper that I have had in a matt stack for mega years and is from K & Co. My flower image is from Hero Arts and although I had the stamp for years, it is the first time I inked it up. Haven’t you heard that before? How many do the same thing? When I told Al he teased me because he thought it was the craziest thing he’s heard. Guess he doesn’t understand stampers. We have good intentions, though, wouldn’t you agree? My sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!
I bought four background stamps. I love that they are 5.75″ x 5.75″ so they cover the whole card. My collection of their background stamps is large.
And finally I ordered some deeply etched red rubber.
If you are interested in seeing my card that won using random.org, you can see below. It uses the Blender Pen Technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter.
I’m doing the happy dance–my stamps arrived today and I bought the mother-of-the bride dress and a dress for the wedding shower today. My daughter and I had a wonderful day shopping. I wanted her approval in my dress and when she saw me in the dress I bought, it said it all. I”ll be sure to post wedding photos after her August 16th wedding.
Have a nice weekend!
Do you want to learn a new way to use your alcohol inks? Today I will show you how easy it is to create a background with blending alcohol inks using a baby wipe. It is an easy technique with few supplies needed.
Supplies: Alcohol inks, baby wipes and glossy cardstock
Lay two baby wipes on top of each other and fold several times
Drop alcohol inks onto the edge of the baby wipe as shown here
Swipe your baby wipe across the glossy cardstock
Repeat in the opposite direction if you so choose. When alcohol ink dries out, reapply ink to your baby wipe.
Stamp directly onto background or use the background for your embellishments and/or coloured images.
Thank you for stopping by.

This week’s challenge at Impression Obsession is “I’m Thankful For.” Can you tell what I’m thankful for? Yup, snuggle time with my boyfriend. Al is very special to me and I’m so thankful that our best friend introduced us. I’ll make you jealous by telling you that he loves to cook and we spend a lot of time in the kitchen together. I don’t even mind that he likes to take over. We often pull out my favourite Weight Watchers cookbook and experiment with new recipes.
I used Small Couple D13078 and stamped it out onto white card stock. Next, I masked the couple to create the sun. Then I masked the sun and the couple and brayered a Kaleidacolor Spectrum over top to create the sky. Next, I added the grass with Prismacolor pencil crayons and OMS.
I won the last Impression Obsession challenge and will post the winnings shortly.
Hi folks. Do you like 3-D cards? Here is a card that I came up with myself. I call it the Kaleidoscope card. This style of card is featured on the Technique Junkie Newsletter 3D and Fancy Folds CD which can be purchased on my side bar. This card has four layers and is so much fun.
Stamps are Crab & Co and Baroque Motifs from Stampin Up!

Happy Saturday! How is the weather treating you? Here in Sarnia, Ontario, we had wet snow this morning. Ugh!
I am in love with Impression Obsession stamps and decided it’s time to join in on their challenges, so today’s card is for their Flowers for You Challenge. My butterfly stamp G1753 and DIE018-V are from Impression Obsession.
What would my card be without a technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter? I used the Blender Pen technique from June 2008. Wow, it’s hard to believe that technique was so long ago. I used Tombow markers for my blender pen technique.
Enjoy your weekend!
I created my watercolor by using SU’s Fifth Avenue Floral rose. You can view the tutorial I followed by Patty on her Watercolor Rose tutorial. It is very important that you use SU’s Shimmery White cardstock or the spritzed water will saturate your cardstock. I learned the hard way, after embossing 50 roses. Now I have 40 new roses finished, and only 10 more to go. They are so pretty.
Thank you for stopping by. I’m on the scrounge for a tutorial to do for you so stay tuned for that. Any suggestions?

From the Stampbooking CD at the Technique Junkie Newsletter comes Tye Die Chic (my flower). You can order the CD by clicking on the upper right bar.
I sponged on StazOn inks before I embossed with the Cuttlebug. Liquid Pearls were used to cover the numbers and add dots.
Have a nice day!
