In the Garden

Hi there stampers.  As I sit here typing this, I feel like my dad who used to listen to “old” music, as I listen to music on Google from the 60’s, the time I was born.  (I must have wanted to be younger and noticed I said I was 49 in a recent post.  WRONG.  59).  How I started listening to the 60’s has quite a funny story.  I was recently sick with a cold.  The worst I ever had.  Trying to ask Google to play a local radio station, my brain was in a fog and I couldn’t spit it out.  All I could do was make sounds and the 60’s is what came up.  I’m glad that it took me to this station.

Wild flower silhouettes are popular and have been for quite a while now.  This Technique Junkies silhouette stamp is nice and wide which allows for a full image and if you don’t want to use the original width, simply cut it down like I did above.  The name of this stamp set is Wildflower Silhouette.  The sentiments are from In the Garden.  My coupon code is good for 10% off of your purchase.

Below are close ups of each card.  I made these cards a couple of month’s ago but never posted them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween

Hello Halloween fans!  Do you  enjoy making Halloween cards as much as I do?  I like to make Halloween cards and send them off to a few of my family members.

It’s still not too late to buy and get in on the 15% off of the newly released set of stamps.  The price is discounted automatically so you don’t need a discount code for those, but for all other products you can use TJ10Beth.

Here is my YouTube video from Technique Junkies new release.

 

Directions for Making my Card:

1.  On a piece of gray cardstock, use Cloud Edger stencil and make clouds until you are 2/3 down from top to bottom using black ink.

2.  Using black cardstock, die cut a tree background and adhere with glue.

3.  Stamp Bloody Halloween onto gray cardstock, using black ink.

4.  Add embellishments such as bat die cuts.

Harrison in the Forest of Funky Trees

This past week was a week of challenges in a stamp group I belong to.  This challenge was to create an alcohol ink background with a few twists.  Below you will see how my background turned out and rather than use these as a card front I decided to cut them up with Tim Holtz’s Funky Trees die.  Doesn’t Harrison looks regal surrounded by those trees?

Any special plans for this long weekend?  Enjoy yourselves!

Technique Junkies September Release Sale and Video*

I can’t believe it is September already.  Temperatures are cooling down at night, leaves are starting to change, and it’s getting dark earlier.  The joy September 1st brings me is the Technique Junkies new release and sale.  I had a lot of fun working with the Halloween stamps.  I so love making seasonal cards, and Halloween is one of my favourite occasions to surprise someone with a happy mail day.  One way to make a Halloween card spooky is to add misty fog.  You will learn how to do that in my video below.  Enjoy.

Before we get to the video, let me remind you how the sale works.  From the 1st to the 8th, you will receive a 15% automatic discount on each new release you purchase.  But, that’s not all.  If you use my code TJ10Beth, you will receive 10% off the remainder of your shopping cart. I encourage you to try the shimmering bliss sprays and the new blending brushes.  Wow!

For the real lover of stamping there is a release called Gotta Have it All Bundle, which includes every single stamp from the September Release.  A picture of the Gotta Have it All Bundle is at the bottom of this post.

Enjoy the video!


Life’s Little Blessings

Be grateful every day for life’s little blessings.  I’m grateful for a wonderful month of August where I have been surrounded by family and friends to celebrate birthdays, have barbecues, celebrating Al’s and my 3rd wedding anniversary, meeting my new granddaughter, boating with family, meeting my elementary school friend (um, I’m I turned 49 on the 9th) where we picked up right where we left off.  The list goes on and on.

If you look very close, you will see Dancing Sprigs stencil on my Gelliplate background.   This stencil is available at Technique Junkies for 10% off, as well as your other items (aside from items already on sale) simply by using my code TJ10Beth.

Over my Gelliplate background I heat embossed in gold, using Love Harlequin stamp.

I stamped out newly released Life’s Little Blessings before I tore my paper.  I did this because I didn’t want to over tear, or under tear, my handmade decorative paper.  Whalaa.  Finished.

Thanks for stopping by.  You just made my day.  Just another of life’s little blessings.

Color Bursts anyone?

August has been so fulfilling creativity wise.  Technique Junkies August release has gone hand-in-hand with my Gelliplate, Color Bursts, inking over stencils, etc.

By spritzing Color Bursts with a lot of water, they become runny and blend together as seen on the background behind Just Beautiful stamp.  The background was blended using blending brushes and Swirl Grid stencil.

Interested in a 10% discount?  Just use my code TJ10Beth for 10% off (aside from items already on sale).

Kiss my Ace

Hello friends!  I’ve been having lots of fun with my GelliPlate.  I get together with my girlfriend and we play all day.  I am particularly pleased with the look of Tennis Racquet Patent and Tennis Sentiments, set of 3.  I hear time and time again how stampers love Technique Junkies sarcastic and punny stamps.  I do too.

The shape of my yellow background works perfectly with Tennis Racquet Patent, don’t you think?

If my card captures your attention, you may be interested to know there is a Gotta Have it all Bundle.  Use code TJ10Beth for a 10% discount on your shopping cart.

Thanks for stopping by!

Relax and Renew

Hello fellow stampers.  By the 25th of each month I have all of my TJ cards made for the following month.  Today I chose to post this particular card because I’m doing just that–relaxing, calming my mind, and renewing my spirit as I’m on vacation for the week.  So far it has been quite the whirlwind of a week–and it’s only Tuesday, LOL.

My daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters are down from Ottawa, and if luck wasn’t on our side, my son’s schedule has been free for the last two days, so my little chicks are together again.  Yesterday we all had a barbecue out at our trailer and today the boys went boating while my daughter and I went to Good Will.  Score!

Any guesses as to how my background was made?  It’s Gellipaper.  Cool, eh!?  I am having so much fun with my Gelliplate.  My camera has some samples of Gellipapers created from the 3+ hour workshop.

My card uses an August stamp release called Relax Your Body combined with Dancing Sprigs stencil.  These, and other items in your shopping cart, are 10% off just by using my code TJ10Beth.

Thanks for stopping by!
