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.

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

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.

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.

Rainy Day Friends

Hello folks! Today I have a fun card using Technique Junkies Rainy Day Friends.  You can receive this stamp or any other product for 10% off simply by using TJ10Beth.

I paper pieced the umbrella and coloured my image with Prismacolor colored pencils and then painted areas with Twinkling H2o’s to add shadows.

Fall is upon us.  Temperatures are cooler and I get to get cozy wearing sweaters.  Fall is my favourite season.  What’s yours?

Wolf by Moonlight

Hello folks!  Technique Junkies Wolf by Moonlight is one of my favourite masculine stamps. I see so many possibilities with it.  You can receive this stamp at 10% off simply by using my code TJ10Beth.  In fact, you can use this code for anything in the store.  What a steal of a deal!

I sprayed several pieces of cardstock with Shimmering Bliss and there were puddles left behind so I smooshed my white cardstock into the puddles of Shimmering Bliss and this is the background that turned out.

I tore my main image, matted it on black and tore the black as well.  The buttons came from an advertisement on Pinterest while I was surfing cards.  I never know if these advertisements are scams but my heart went pitter patter when I saw these buttons.  There were so many to choose from that I ordered two different packages.  Wasn’t I surprised when they arrived within a week.

Have a great week and get inky!

My background was created using Ken Oliver’s Color Burst powders.  I used Earth tones.

I made four backgrounds and immediately chose this background because it looks like the Northern Lights.  I can see using this stamp a lot because it makes a great masculine card.

Have a great week!
