Technique Junkies November Release and Discount

Good morning fellow stampers.  Wow, are you in for a treat with our November release.  There are so many wonderful designs that it was hard to narrow it down to two for my post.  As usual, all November release stamps are 15% off, plus you can use my discount code TJ10Beth to receive an addition 10% off.  Now that’s a steal!

You will find the list of the Design Team participants below.  Click on all of them because there is a beautiful selection of work from such a talented group.  Now is the time to start making those Christmas cards!

I fell off my chair when I saw Knitting with Friends because I am a knitter and get together regular with a small group of friends to have lunch and knitting.  It’s a good time to catch up on everything new and boy do we enable each other.

I just had to turn them into a Christmas card.  I think it’s an adorable card for my knitting group, don’t you think?

My next card uses Snowman.  Speaking of snowman, I just love the family movie called Jack Frost.  Apparently there is a spooky movie with the same name, which I haven’t seen.  I have watched Jack Frost every Christmas season for at least 10 years, or more.  There were so many ideas going through my head with this adorable Snowman and I finally settled with this design.

Tutorial:

  1.  Using Blending Brushes, blend Tempting Turquoise onto the background.  Oh my goodness, this was my first time using these brushes and being a die-hard sponge user, I instantly became a Blending Brush lover.  Look how smooth my background is.  White cardstock is 4 3/4″ x 5 3/4″.
  2.  Stamp Real Red Snowflakes, Set of 9.  In open areas, stamp small snowflakes with Tempting Turquoise and place sequins on the inside
  3.   Colour Snowman with Prismacolour pencil crayons.  Here I used a grey blue and a pink.  For the nose a reddish-orange.  Fussy Cut the Snowman and adhere snowman to a white oval background.  Before lifting it out of the paper, once cut, take the smallest of Blending Brushes and lightly blend Tempting Turquoise around the edge of the die and onto the edge of the white cardstock.
  4.  Cut out a scallop oval in Real Red and using pop dots, add it to the back of the white oval.
  5.  Taking a pink paper that coordinates with the pink on the snowman, cut a 1 1/2″x 4 3/4″ and using the Real Red, cut out a piece that that looks pleasing and add it to your pink.  I used a thin line, but you can do a thicker red.
  6.  Add a bow to your cardstock around the pink and red band.
  7.  Add a sentiment.  This sentiment came from Snowflakes, Set of 9.
  8.  Finally, add stickles to your buttons and ball of hat.
  9.  Edge in Real Red.

I really like that knit background stamp too. Very original, but you could use just a portion of it on a card too, for a different look. The snowman is too cute. It is hard to resist!

Hope you have a good day, Beth! Thanks for your recent comments!
