Merry Christmas to all my readers, and my friends I made through the rubberstamping community.
This card was coloured with Prismacolor pencil crayons in a class I took with Bev Fish, of Fishtale Studio in Wallaceburg, Ontario.
It is my hope to post more in 2017.
Hi Folks! I was inspired to make six snowmen from something I saw on Pinterest. The snowmen on Pinterest used a die, where I hand drew my snowmen, scarf and arms. I used an SU button die and a star die on the scarf and one on the body that is nice and glittery. I stamped my snowman with Vintage Music from Technique Junkies. I distressed the edges with brown ink and painted the eyes and nose with acrylic paint.
Christmas will soon be upon us. May your house be filled with Christmas spirit and lots of joy with family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by.
Each Christmas I give my co-workers my handmade dishcloths, and every year I try to decorate them differently. This year I used Hero Arts little birds and Technique Junkies Merry Christmas stamp on my handmade gift tag.

Hello folks. Are you in the spirit of Christmas? We had quite the snowfall, and with lots of Christmas music playing in my apartment, presents all wrapped under the tree, it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.
This stamp is called Ho Ho Ho Dog and he was stamped out four times and then masked. Over top of the mask I used the background stamp called Snowflakes and stamped out my snowflakes. To be funny, I stamped my dogs in different directions and adhered my images onto Stampin’ Ups! Real Red cardstock.
For my last step I added white stickles to the fur and ball of the hat.

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.

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.

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!
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?

Welcome to the Technique Junkies new release blog hop. If you like Christmas stamps as much as I do, you’re in for a treat. You’ll see that I had lots of fun, and I want you to have fun too, so be sure to start at the Design Junkies blog where it is the start to the hop. If you came from the talented Kathy Stacy’s blog, then you’re on the right track. Kathy always thinks outside the box, which is why I love her work so much.
My card above uses Safari Santa and was watercoloured onto watercolour paper with Tombow markers. The image was stamped out twice so I could cute the hat and layer it with pop dots, and in real life it looks really cute. White stickles were added to the fur and ball of the hat.
For my second card I used Christmas Carol Kitty who is singing “Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, you’re ornaments are history.” Pretty funny, eh?!
In my background I used Flourished Christmas Tree from last year’s Christmas release (sorry, this stamp is not on sale).
My colour comes from spraying my watercolour paper and tapping Color Bursts on top, and then respraying lightly.
For my third card I created a background using the Shaving Cream Technique and stamped Calm & Bright over top of that.
Now it’s time to go and have fun at Pam DeChellis’ blog where you will find some awesome work.
