Technique Junkies July New Release and Sale

Ah, July–sand and sea, mermaids and starfish, beach and love.  Yes, that’s a sum up of this month’s new release from Technique Junkies.  As someone who lived 14 years on Canada’s East Coast, this month’s collection of stamps are close-to-my-heart.

 

As always, new release stamps are 15% off until July 8th, and if you use code TJ10Beth, you will receive an additional 10% off–that’s a whopping 25% off.  The remainder of your cart will be 10% off.  We are more than just stamps, so take a look around Technique Junkie’s website.

Stamps used: Drink Like a Fish and Wish Upon a Starfish

To create my background, I used Distress Inks in a blue and a green.  First, I placed the green on my non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with water and placed my 110lb cardstock over top of the ink.  I dried the layer and repeated with blue.  The results are just as I hoped for.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed my mermaid with white embossing powder, over top of my dried background. The sea floor was floor was created with Stampendous chunky metallic aseasonings embossing enamel.

Using watercolour paper, the mermaid, shells and starfish were stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder, then painted with watercolour paints.

The embossed images were then cut into shape then glued onto the card.  Even the liquid drink was carefully cut and glued down.

Stamps used:  Stays at the beach and Burst

Using  turquoise-green cardstock, Burst was stamped out with VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder and heat set. Over top of the background, one of my handmade backgrounds (see above for directions as to how the background was created) was cut into a circle.  Stays at the Beach was stamped out in black, and then stamped out onto watercolour paper.  The kissing fish on watercolour paper was watercoloured, fussy cut and then pop dotted over top of the fish stamped out onto the handmade background.

Hanging with my Gnomies

Good morning fellow stampers and paper card artists!

I fell in love with this Technique Junkies stamp because I love gnomes, and so does half the country, or so it seems.  Gnomes are popping up everywhere.  This one comes as an image of three gnomes, called “Hangin’ with my Gnomies“, which I masked and turned it into a crowd of gnomes.

I certainly don’t have a “standard look” about my work as I feel I’m all over the map with my style.  I put this card in the classification as “cutsie.”

Thanks for stopping by.  Stay safe and get creative!

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.

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!
