Hello stamping friends. Did my fellow Canadians have a nice Thanksgiving? I had a fun-filled weekend with my family. My daughter and her new husband came for breakfast on Saturday morning and then in the evening my man took me out to the big city for supper and the stand up comedian act of the Yuk Yuks. Boy were they funny!
On Sunday we enjoyed a Thanksgiving potluck at my girlfriend’s house where there were at least 40 or 50 of us there. It was short-sleeve weather and the pool was heated to 90 degrees. Al and I were one of the few who braved the pool. We swam for almost an hour and a half before we dug into the biggest feast you could imagine. I made my traditional Waldorf salad.
I’ve been busy shooting tutorials for the Technique Junkie Newsletter in between all the festivities, and now it’s time to take the time to post one of my cards that was in the August issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. This technique is called Glittery Washi Window. How fun to find a new way to use the ever-popular Washi tape.
My heart die and the background stamp both come from Impression Obsession. The sentiment is from Stamp’n Up!
Have a nice week!

Good morning. Today I have a Glittery Washi Tape card to show you. It was published in the August issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, and is one of my favourite cards. I love how the Impression Obsession die is large enough to show off the Washi tape, yet leave enough space to add a sentiment.
I gave this card to my daughter, Sarah, with her wedding shower gift.
The die I used is also from Impression Obsession. Dies are all the rage right now, eh?! (yes, I’m Canadian and use “eh” a lot–LOL).
Have a good day.
Hi there. Are you having a good week? I’m enjoying the sun that is upon southern Ontario–something we haven’t seen much throughout the summer.
Today’s card uses Stained Embossing. I say any technique that uses our embossing machine is a “rockin’” technique. This technique is from the June issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.
Rockn’ this week’s technique is my cute little image from our sponsor, Impression Obsession. I have a girlfriend who owns a huge tiki hut with an in-ground pool so I bought this stamp with her in mind. My girlfriend helped drive to the Detroit airport to pick up my mom for my daughter’s wedding (I live in Canada, just about 90 minutes from the airport) so I gave her this card as a thank you. She tells me she has a photo album full of my cards and will add this one to her collection. I’m so humbled.
You may be curious as to how I cut my card. I used my new Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One set. It left a neat little spot for my Stampn Up sentiment. My image was coloured with Prismacolor pencil crayons and OMS.
I hope you’re having good weather where you are. Thank you for stopping by!
Today I will show you how to create a one layer cloud card which was inspired by Pam Mackay who posted her card to Splitcoaststampers. My card was made for this week’s Impression Obsession Things That Fly challenge. Their main blog homepage can be found here.
Start by placing sticky notes, spaced evenly, on both ends of white cardstock. Leave white space on both ends of the cardstock.
Create a cloud with sturdy paper such as watercolour paper or a scrap from a cereal box. Place the top of the cloud so it overlaps the sticky note. Sponge ink around the top of the cloud.
Continue to move the cloud along the top of the paper, adjusting the height as you move your cloud along.
Use a variety of colours for your clouds. Continue creating clouds until the open space is completely filled.

Add sentiment. You may wish to mat your card as seen above on my finished card.
Thank you for stopping by. For more tutorials see my Tutorial buttons along the top of the blog.
Ruff day at the office? What a cute way to send someone a cheer-me-up card.
The technique I used is from the recent issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter and is called Simply Framed. It is such a unique way of placing your stamps together in an overlapping fashion.
This stamp set is from Mark’s Finest Papers, a Heinrich Collection.
Thank you for stopping by.
My mom is such a beautiful beader. Here is the jewellery she made me for Sarah’s wedding. The pearl bracelet is unique with the detailed beading that has been attached to the front. I felt so pretty wearing this. Thanks mom!
Hello friends. Today I have a Gradient Stamping card to share with you. I used my Stampn’ Up ink pads to create this look. This technique is in the newest issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. My flower stamps are from Verve and came from my winnings on their blog hop. I added gems to the centres to add a little bling to my card. The sentiment is from Stampn’ Up.
Hello there. Did you have a nice weekend? I had to work and am on 3-11′s now for two weeks. Working 3-11 allows me time to work in my stamp room and feel energized because I can sleep in.
Today’s card was created for my very dear cousin, Terry Ann. I used a Stamping Bella image and watercoloured it with my Tombow markers. Next, I used some designer paper and created a 3-D flower. Stickles were added to add some sparkle.
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great week!
The TJ Design Team is here to roll out the Technique Junkies CD-11, a compilation CD of all of the tutorials from the October 2012 through August 2013 issues. We are so excited to have you join us.
You should have arrived here from Nancy Dawson‘s blog. Didn’t you love what she created? I love her talent. To start at the beginning, go to the Design Team website by clicking here http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/
The CD includes 10 bonus techniques that are only found on the CD. All of the tutorials are in PDF format, so they print perfectly on regular paper, for both PCs and Macs. With the bonus tutorials, there are 100 tutorials on this CD!
New on this CD
This CD contains a pictorial index that you can print out — each of the 100 tutorials on the CD are represented with pictures in the index. It has been designed to make it easier than ever to find a tutorial on the CD.
Here is my project using the Colored Bling technique. My bling started out as white but I turned it to green to coordinate with my watercoloured daisy. I used Tombow markers to watercolour my daisy.
Your next stop is Shelly Schmit’s blog. Once again, I say she is ubber talented.
