Enjoy the Ride

Hello folks.  I thought I’d mix it up a little bit with a Technique Junkies nautical card.  You can receive these stamps, or anything else, at 10% off just by using my discount code TJ10Beth.

The very bottom design is designer paper but everything else is stamped.  Popular right now is Wood.  I can’t get enough of wood design stamps right now.  My sailboat and sentiment comes from Enjoy the Ride.  The layer under Wood is Nautical Background.

Are you ready for Christmas?  I am.  Everything is done.  The last of knitting, wrapping, and paper purses to hold gifts are made.  Stay tuned for a peak into my world of unique wrapping on Saturday.

Have a great week!

30 Days of Christmas, Day 23 – Technique Junkies

Hello and welcome to the 30 Days of Christmas.  If you are following along  are you inspired by all the beautiful cards from the design team?

During the 30 days of Christmas, every stamp in the Christmas category is 20% off. AND you can use my 10% TJ10Beth discount! That means that you will potentially get 30% off all Christmas stamps.

You can see the Christmas stamps here.

I had a lot of fun making this card.

 

Steps:

  1. Find a piece of designer paper that isn’t busy, such as the blended colours one I used.  You can blend colours onto your own paper to create your own background.
  2. Using white embossing powder, heat emboss your background using the stamp above called Christmas Whimsy Background.
  3. Cut your squares at 1″ pieces and adhere to a piece of white cardstock measuring  4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″.
  4. Adhere your cardstock to a pieces of white cardstock  4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.
  5. Use a coordinating colour of cardstock, size 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, to mat your card.

30 Days of Christmas Day 16 – Technique Junkies

Hi folks.  Today I’m showing you how you can use a non traditional stamp and turn it into a Christmas card.  Here, I used Technique Junkies Creaking Trees.  I cut off the sentiment so I could use the trees alone.  I paired the trees with the sentiment Joy.

Here I used sparkly white ribbon.  Which is your favourite?

30 Days of Christmas Day 9

Hello folks.  I wish you a groovy Christmas.  The moment I saw this stamp I knew I had to have it–it’s so me.  LOL.

Today I’m showing you two cards, one Christmas related and one general related.

I coloured Groovy Christmas to coordinate with my Bo Bunny Christmas designer paper.

During the 30 days of Christmas, every stamp in the Christmas category is 20% off. AND you can use my 10% TJ10Beth discount! That means that you will potentially get 30% off all Christmas stamps

I love how the sentiment Soul of a Gypsy coordinates with this Groovy Christmas stamp so well.  I can see many more of these cards to come.  I sell my cards at work and I’ll bet this will be a popular card.

Have a great week!

Technique Junkies October New Release

Welcome to the Technique Junkies October New Release!  If you came from my ubber talented friend Judy Jackson then you’re on the right track.  Otherwise you might want to start at the beginning of the hop at our blog Design Junkies so you don’t miss a thing.  Keep on reading for a tutorial I made.

We have a new designer and I’m sure you know of her.  Our new artist is the talented Ms. Jan Tinklenberg who has a stamp line called Mitton State Stamps.  This lovely Wreath Sled is one of Jan’s fine designs.

From today until October 8th you can get the October release stamps at 15% off.  It automatically comes off your cart.  It’s that simple.  For any other products you are entitled to 10% off.  All you have to do is use my code TJ10Beth.

\

My next card uses a technique I personally developed for the June 2010 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  This technique is called Faux Dominos and I am sharing a new tutorial with you.  Read on for it.  To see the original tutorial I shot you can see it here.

I coloured this wonderful Holiday Doodles stamp, which is a new release.

Next, I cut the image close to the half way point.

I cut the “dominoes” in 1″ pieces then I used a corner rounder to shape them into dominoes.  This step is optional.  You might like square dominoes better.

Using VersaMark I pressed the pad over top of the entire domino piece then sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat embossed the embossing powder.

To make the domino look thick, add pop dots on the back.  Now you’re ready to finish your card.

Your next visit is with the talented Lynda Pleckan.
