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!

DDD June Kit Challenge

Hello there.  Thanks for popping in today.

Today’s card was inspired by a kit from Terry L. from the Dueling Darlings group in which I am a member.  Tami (Divas) and Terry L (Dazzlers) decided to use “what we have” to create a kit with “Halloween” being the theme.

By now you know I love to make 3-D cards, and this kit lends itself to doing just that.  This is called the Bendi card, and everything, except the tree die, was in the kit.

For a tutorial on the Bendi card, please see here.

Images were coloured with copic markers.  Background was sponged with black and Pumpkin Pie.

The following are the products I used from the kit sent to me:

Images and sentiment:  My Favorite Things “Witch Way is the Candy?”

Papers:  The Paper Studio

Enamel dots:  The Paper Studio

Die cuts:  A Muse fence, spider web and bats.

Whimsical Garden

 

 

Good morning folks!  I had so much fun making this card that I decided it is one of two cards I teach at my card class for my co-workers.  I used Technique Junkies Whimsical Garden, and if you use TJ10Beth discount code you automatically receive 10% off of the stamp and any other product you add to your cart (minus clearance stamps). 

I stamped out my flower, and with a hole punched in a sticky note I blened ink to create a solid image on my flower, then I took a Q-tip and blended in the centre colour.

Well, Al bought a power  boat and we had lots of fun this weekend.  We spent many hours on the boat going for a ride, and just docked.  It gave me a chance to catch up on some reading.  I love being outdoors.  Because my photos are all on my phone, I’ll be sure to take some with my camera so I can upload them for you to see.

Happy Stamping!

Ruffle your Feathers

Hello fellow stampers!  How do you like my five hour card?  Yup, five hours to make this card.  I knew that I wanted a rustic look, and the planning took so many hours to do, replacing idea after idea, until I finally found the right combination of stamps, embossing powder and colours.  Please tell me you find yourself in the same position as me.  I can’t be the only one to spend so many hours planning out a card.

This stamp, called Ruffle your Feathers, is a new release for Technique Junkies for the month of May.  Don’t despair that you missed out on the “new release discount” because you can grab my code TJ10Beth for 10% off of anything in the store, excluding clearance items.

CARD TUTORIAL

  1. Stamp Little Checkerboard in black ink over white cardstock
  2. Stamp Plaid in red over white cardstock
  3. Heat emboss Chicken Wire 2 with gold embossing powder
  4. Layer each stamped image as shown above
  5. Add a black border around the card front and around the image, and complete by adding a gold border around both the card front and image

Dueling Darlings May Kit Challenge

This month it was Shelly’s turn to send the Dazzler’s a kit and she chose the theme Masculine/Motorcycles.  I am so pleased with how nice the papers all coordinate so well.  As someone who uses bright colours most of the time, these colours are a welcome change.  I am in love with plaid and used the plaid side rather than the backside.  It is always fun to see what the Dazzler’s and Diva’s do with their kits.  It’s amazing how different each card looks.

Card Supplies:

  • Motorcycle stamp, Artistic Outpost
  • Sentiment, unknown source
  • Ribbon, SU
  • Dew Drops
  • Designer paper – gray, Kaiserkraft
  • Designer paper – wood grain, Moxie
  • Designer paper – plaid, Reminince
  • Matt backing – SU Early Espresso (this is from my stash)

Thanks, Shelly, for the great kit!

Free Spirit

Hello there.  First, let me apologize for the poor lighting.  When I took a bunch of photos there was no sun for days.  Just rain.

I fell in love with this stamp called Free Spirit because it reminded me of my cousin, Terry Ann, who is a free spirit.  She has a business doing Reiki, Indi Head Massage, Massages, and card readings.

This stamp can be yours at 10% off simply by using my code TJ10Beth.  There are four stamps in this set which you can see here.

Have I told you how much I love my Misti?  It came in very handy when I “coloured” my stamp.  Using Tombow markers, I coloured my stamp in small sections and stamped out my image multiple times until I was satisfied with the darkness of colour.

My background was created by cutting multiple blue shades of cardstock, in an angular direction.  After gluing on my cardstock with Modge Podge, I trimmed the edges once it was dry.  Next, I ran my background through my Big Shot (yes, after 10 years my Cuttlebug bit the dust) using a wood grain embossing folder.

You’ll be seeing more of this stamp set, that’s for sure!

Thanks for stopping by!
