Technique Junkies April New Release

Here we are at April 1st already.  We had a beautiful winter and now it’s time to enjoy the spring weather which brings us to April’s Release Celebration.  The design team made up some yummy things for you.  Listed below are links to everyone’s cards.

As always, new release stamps are 15% off and with my code TJ10Beth, your savings goes up to 25% off.


Here I used Precise Posy and Anything is Possible.  I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s video tutorial on how to create this card.  The following is what I did to create this card.


  • Using Yupo paper spread some rubbing alcohol over your background
  • Drip Alcohol Inks on top of the Yupo paper, as well as Blending Solution, and blow with a straw.  Repeat until your Yupo paper is covered.
  • Let dry completely, or dry with you heat gun
  • Once dry, generously rub your embossing buddy all over your Yupo paper
  • With your VersaMark pad stamp out your image and press firmly onto Yupo paper.  If you are using a Misti, then repeat by inking up your stamp with VersaMark and stamping out your image for a second time
  • Heat emboss with clear embossing powder
  • Lay your Yupo paper onto the die cut machine.
  • With a spray mist bottle filled with rubbing alcohol, generously spray your embossed image.
  • Lay a piece of cardstock over the Yupo paper and run through your die cut/embossing machine.
  • Pull the cardstock off the Yupo paper and once dry, cut down to size.
  • Surround your Yupo paper with one or two pieces of cardstock.
  • Embellish as you would like.  Here I used Anything is Possible, a new April release


This cute little doggy was made up using Tail in the Air.

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.

When I saw this on FB – I thought oh what a beautiful background, not knowing how you did it until read your blog.
Card is perfect with the beautiful sentiment. Then the puppy – how cute – and there are times I wish I could do that!!!
