Love and Laughter Floral

Hello stampers!  Today’s cards use one stamp called Love and Laughter Floral from Technique Junkies.  As you may know, I do like to make several cards using one stamp, using a different technique, or different colours.  Because I like bright colours I used Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.  For the card on my left I heat embossed with dark chocolate and my stencil stamp came from A Colourful Life Designs stencil called Garden Gate.

Our new release will be upon us in less than a week, and I’m so excited about this release, so please remember to come back on September 1st for a peak at the new release and big discount on new releases.

As always, if you are so inclined, please use code TJ10Beth to get 10% off you entire purchase (excludes clearance items).

Cheers!

Stampn’ Up Saturday

Hello fellow stampers!  When my work schedule permits me to attend a Stampn’ Up card class with Mary Beth Phillips, I jump at the opportunity.  We always have fun in our little group filling the room with laughter and swapping of stories and maybe a little teasing here and there.

I enjoy our class because it gives us the opportunity to use products or stamps we might not otherwise use.

Today my girlfriend of 4y years (we went to school with each other in grade five through highschool and remaind friends) and her partner are coming over for a visit.  Al and I are going to take them to a winery and brewery and then go back to my place for a long night of chatter.

What plans do you have this weekend?

Dreaming of Wings

Hello folks!  Todays Technique Junkies card uses Dreaming of Wings and A Colorful Life Stencils background.  I stamped and coloured my image then I carefully sponged the stencil.  This was extremely easy with this stamp, and required no masking.  Easy peasy folks!

As always, you can enjoy a 10% discount on these, or any other product, excluding the clearance rack, simply by using my code TJ10Beth.

Have a great day!

The Rooster May Crow

Hello there fellow stampers.  How did you like the new release for Technique Junkies?  There are a lot of awesome stamps this month, and it’s not too late to hone in on the fantastic 25% off newly released stamps.  How so, you ask?!  Well, all newly released stamps are 15% off until August 8th, and with my 10% discount coupon, you will get 25% off newly released stamps, and 10% of all other products you purchase, excluding the clearance rack.  Feel free to use my 10% discount code TJ10Beth.

Here I used a new release called The Rooster May Crow, and paired it with two older stamps:  Little Checkerboard and Chicken Wire 2.

I heat embossed using gold embossing powder over Real Red cardstock.  Little Checkerboard was stamped out and die cut to make a frame for my main image.

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy your week!

Technique Junkies New Release and Discount

Welcome, welcome to the August release for Technique Junkies.  There is so much goodness to see and let me tell you that the design team will wow you.  I know I was blown away with the talent of the TJ DT.

All newly released stamps are 15% off until August 8th, and when you use my code, TJ10Beth, you will get a total of 25% off of your purchase.  There are no discounts on clearance items.

 

Here, I used I’ll be Watching You.  I stamped over my stenciled background, using a variety of A Colorful Life Stencils.  Next, I drew lines around the edges as seen on Debi Payne’s work on-line.  I thought it would be a great way to add more black to make the image pop, instead of using a black mat.  Sequins were added to give it some texture.

Looking through a gate, or window, is Framed Sunflower.  Would you believe sunflowers are one of my favourite flowers?  LOL.  Here, I stamped out my image and spent quite a bit of time colouring it with Prismacolor coloured pencils and even blended some brown paint around the centre of the flower and added brown dots using dark brown acrylic paint.  The last thing I did was to add clouds to the sky, using my handmade stencil.

Vintage Lighthouse

Hello folks!

Everywhere I turn these days, the nautical theme comes up–in stamping, household decorating, and last August it was my wedding theme.  Who would have guessed that the rest finally caught up to me–LOL!

Using my Technique Junkies stamps, Ropes and Vintage Lighthouse, I created this fun card that could be used for any occasion.

I used the Misti to create two colours of ropes on my background Ropes stamp, which is so easy to do.

Aside from the clearance rack, you can use my discount code TJ10Beth for 10% of your entire purchase!  It doesn’t get better than that!

Have a greeat day!

DDD Christmas in July

Hello folks!  For those who follow me, you know that on the 15th of the month I post a card that I made with a kit from the Dueling Darlings.  There are two teams:  the Divas, and the Darlings (me).  The two teams are sent different kits and it is a duel to see how each kit is used.  It is a lot of fun that’s for sure.  Being part of this group certainly pushes me to the max to see what I can come up with.

This month I did paper tole.  Remember how it used to be the rage?

If you look very close, you will see the top layer of my card has been cut out and using pop dots, I adhered the top to the background.

Another fun challenge!

Technique Junkies July New Release

 

Hello fellow stampers!  Another fun release is upon us, here at Technique Junkies.  Until July 8th, newly released stamps are 15% off, and if you use TJ10Beth discount code, you will receive an additional 10% off.  Can’t beat 25% off newly-released stamps!  When you use my code, the rest of your items in your shopping cart (minus clearance items) will be discounted at 10% off.

 

Here, I used Shells and Starfish,a new release; and the sentiment comes from an older set called Seahorse Set of 4.  I coloured my seashells with copic markers and added shading with my Prismacolor coloured pencils.

For my Summer Bouquet card I used the following papers:  So Saffron, Regal Rose and Cherry Cobbler.  This is a fun image to colour because there are so many possibilities with the colours.  My spring-like colours will be seen at a later date.

Go Wild

Good morning fellow stampers.  Today’s card was inspired by the Bokeh technique.  Using Whimsical Garden from Technique Junkies, I stamped out the image four times and then filled in the open area with a phrase from Things I want to do.

You can receive these, or any other product (except clearance items), at 10% off simply by using my code TJ10Beth.

Last night I taught a card class and it was so much fun.  The group was small, but very enthusiastic, which just makes me happy.  They learned to use the Bigshot to emboss and cut some dies.  We finished the class in 60 minutes, which surprised all of us.

Hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
