Triple the Fun

Technique Junkies Stamps, Triple the Fun

Hi folks.  Today I’m here with the Triple the Fun technique from the February 2013 issue.  Where does the time go?  It seems like yesterday I was filming this technique for the Newsletter.

My pretty butterflies are from Technique Junkies Stamps and are coloured with Prismacolor pencil crayons and OMS.  I matted the layers with Stampn’ Up’s Rich Razzelberry, one of my favourite colours.

Thank you for stopping by.

Collaged Circles

Technique Junkies Stamps, Collaged Circles

Hello friends.  It’s so nice to have it warming up here in Southern Ontario.  I’m actually getting out for some walks after a brutal two weeks of -40 degrees C.  To keep warm I stayed in my stamp room and stamped up a storm.

I created this Collage Circles card, using a Technique Junkies stamp.  This technique can be found on the Designer Paper Perfection CD which can be purchased on the upper right hand side of my bar.

What have you been doing with this nicer weather?

Rolled Background

Technique Junkies Stamps, Rolled Backgrounds

Hello folks.  Are you having a nice week so far?

I brought out an old technique called Rolled Backgrounds from the February 2013 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  It seems like yesterday I was filming this technique.  Where did those two years go?  The trick to this technique is to use a good tacky glue that adheres quickly.

Angelic Outlined Resist

Technique Junkies Stamps, Outlined Resist 2

Oh how I love these two stamps.  They are two of my favourites.  I had fun colouring this angel with Prismacolor pencil crayons and OMS, and paired it with my background stamping, using the Outlined Resist technique.

I’ve got my mojo back BIG time and can say I have ten cards done and ready to be uploaded.  I’ve been a stamping machine.

Stay warm. That arctic air has been very cold.

Chocolate Baroque

Chocolate Baroque

Good morning friends.  The sun is shining and the temperatures are -25 degrees C, but with the sunshine it doesn’t seem so bad.

I used my new Chocolate Baroque bird stamp and coloured it with Prismacolor pencil crayons and OMS.  My background is called 180 degrees and is from the Technique Junkie Newsletter’s Bodacious Background Stamps which you can order by clicking on the tab to the upper right on my blog.

I’m very pleased with how the background coordinates so well with my image.

I’ve been matting everything in black lately and I really like the impact it gives.

Stay warm my friends. Thanks for stopping by.

Anything High Hopes Goes Challenge

Anything High Hopes Goes challenge

Good Day friends.  I’ve been a very busy girl lately and worked up a storm over the course of my five days off.  One thing that I worked on was this card for the High Hopes “Anything High Hopes Goes” challenge.  I had a lot of fun making this card and embellished up a storm.  You know me, I usually keep my cards quite simple.  I used Laurie’s teapot.  It was coloured with Prismacolor pencil crayons and OMS.  Designer paper are Stampn’ Up retired sheets that I bought at a yard sale for a steal (yes, Myoriah you’d be pleased to hear that I was frugal).

I also want to show off a beautiful tea towel my girlfriend made for me.  She is a professional seamstress which is her hobby and passion.  Much to my surprise she mailed me three tea towels and remembered I liked owls so she made this tea towel for me.

Nestie Masks

Technique Junkies Stamps, Nestie Masks

Hello friends.  I hope this winter isn’t getting to you too much.  I’m staying huddled in my stamp room with a large sliding door that lets the sun shine in, when we have sun, so it really inspires me to work in my stamp room.

I’m not sure if I should have added a sentiment to my card.  What do you think?

My card uses #SD295 Pansy from Technique Junkies Stamps.  If you look closely, you will notice I edged my background with a gold Krylon pen.

Wanting my dragonfly to coordinate with my sponging, I used the Shaving Cream technique and created a background for my dragonfly.

The technique that I used is called Nestie Masks and can be found in the February 2013 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.

Stay warm my friends.

As Cute as Can Bee

Technique Junkies Stamps, Paper Peek Through

Good morning friends.  Today I’m using the cutest technique called Paper Peek Through which can be found on the Bodacious Backgrounds Stamps CD (you can order it on my blog.  It’s on the upper right hand bar).  This CD was produced by the Technique Junkie Newsletter.

I had insomnia on the weekend and woke up at 3:00 a.m., and worked on backgrounds from then until bedtime, so now I have lots of backgrounds to turn into cards.  Yesterday, I had the day off and made six cards and spent countless hours colouring with my Prismacolor pencil crayons.

When I chose my stamps I went looking for this particular paper in my stash, and as luck would have it, it was my last piece of paper, which is so appropriate for my card.

All stamps are from Technique Junkies Stamps.

Have a good day.

Happiness is a cup of coffee shared with a friend

Coffee, Sunflowers and Dragonflies

Happiness is a cup of coffee shared with a friend.  What a delightful way to spend a day.

I made 16 of these cards to give out as birthday presents for some dear friends.

I stamped out my coffee image from Stampendous and coloured it with Prismacolor coloured pencil.  Next, I matted it in a chocolate brown.  My background stamp, from Hampton Arts, was stamped out with brown Momento ink and distressed.  The Kraft cardstock was distressed as well.  Finally, I added brads to the four corners.

I worked from 10:00 until 4:00 straight to get the 16 cards completed.  Boy does it feel good to have gotten them done.

Have a good day.
