Technique Junkies New Release and How to Video


Well, here we are at June 1st already, and time for another new release.  This release is a fantastic one, if you are a lover of the ocean and the beach.  I hope you will enjoy today’s video.

As always, new release stamps are 15% off until June 8th, and by using TJ10Beth, you will get another 10% off–so that’s 25% off New Release stamps.   If you use TJ10Beth, you will receive 10% off your other items in your cart.


Today’s tutorial highlights five newly released stamps and using those stamps to make a Double Z-Fold card.  Enjoy!

Being a Family

Hello fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  For my fellow Canadians, did you have a nice long weekend?  Unfortunately it rained all weekend where I live.  For my American friends and readers of my blog–any big plans for your long weekend?

I had to work this weekend, but I still managed to do a sample card for my next video tutorial on June 1st for Technique Junkies new release.  I’m sure you’ll like what I came up with.  Aren’t I such a tease!?

My card uses Technique Junkies Being a Family.  The peacock cardstock was heat embossed in gold, and the copper was heat embossed with a light copper.  Embellishments, using sequins and twine, were added to finish things off.

Thanks for stopping by.

Dueling Darlings May 15th Kit – Bargain Hunters

Hello folks!  It’s the 15th of the month, and time to work with our kits that were received from the hostess of the month.  The Dazzlers (me) is hosted by Jeanette, and The Divas is hosted by Kelly.  This’s month’s awesome theme is BARGAIN HUNTERS.  The idea is to include items in the kits that are from clearance or second hand.  I thought this is a very fun theme.  There was so much in my kit, but I pared it down to only using a few items because I was dying to try out this style of card, and I felt that the image was perfect for this style.

The cardstock is from my stash, and the patterned paper is from the kit.  Jeanette, who is my hostess this month, says she’s a collector of patterned paper.  I love patterned paper too, but tend to create my own backgrounds.  Pretty paper gives a card that extra punch of joy.

Whalaa.  Finally made it to the image.  Don’t forget to see what the rest of the Dazzlers and Divas have done with their kits.  Thanks for stopping by!

Shoot me to the Moon

Hi there technique junkies!  How about that new release, eh?  Another wonderful one.  Today I’m showcasing Shoot for the Moon, which you can still get at 15% off and if you used TJ10Beth, you get an extra 10% off.  That’s quite a deal.

To make my card, I embossed gold onto Navy cardstock.  Then, I stamped out my image onto white cardstock, coloured up the flower and moon, cut it out, then glued it over top of my embossed image.  To give it dimension (isn’t that what we’re all doing these days?), I added pearls to the swagged loop hanging from the moon.

I was torn between using gold or silver embossing powder, so I did both.  This time I added mini pearls to my swag and around the sky.

Which colour is your favourite?

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day, and get creative!

Technique Junkies WWDB Challenge – Get Well

Hello stampers!  Here we are at week 2 of What We Do Best (WWDB) challenge.  This week’s challenge is to make a Get Well card, and a coordinating envelope, using Technique Junkies stamps.  Play along!  We are giving away a $50 gift card to Technique Junkies.  We sell more than just stamps, so get creative!

Today’s card uses Flourished Floral, Dancing Dandelions and Grand Greetings.  If you follow me, I think you would agree that Flourished Floral is my most-used TJ stamp.

Card Details

The darkest cardstock was cut in half horizontally and one piece was embossed in a light purple and one piece embossed in a dark purple, using Dancing Dandelions.

A ribbon was wrapped around the card to hide the merging of the two pieces of cardstock.  Flourished Floral was coloured with Copic markers.  Grand Greetings comes in a set of f stamps, and using just the words “Get Well” from one of the sentiments, I stamped the words out in the same colour as my embossed background.


  • Having five purple and pink embossing powders, I wanted to test how the colours looked on my dark cardstock.  The colour of the powder is not reflective of how it heat embosses when used on coloured cardstock.  Stamping out my Dancing Dandelions background, I created a test piece.  In doing so, I placed my embossing powders in a row and sprinkled a little bit of each powder over the Versamark in a horizontal fashion.  When heat embossed, a variety of pretty colours appear.  I chose the colours that would coordinate with my project.
  • When using Copic markers, or other markers, on my envelope, I place a scrap piece of cardstock on the inside of the envelope to stop it from bleeding onto the back of the envelope.


SU Paper:  Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo, Pink Piroutte

Ribbon:  Michael’s Craftsmart

Stamps:  Technique Junkies – Flourished Floral, Dancy Dandelions and Grand Greetings.
