Moonlight Forest

Hello stampers! I’m mixing new with old today.  Technique Junkies new stamp is called Forest Buffalo, and the old stamp is Wolf by Moonlight.  I am so in love with these two stamps because they make excellent masculine cards.  My favourite way to use them is with a Color Burst background.  And if luck would have it, Technique Junkies produced Four Little Sentiments, three of which are in the photo above.  Each sentiment fits nicely into the forest floor and looks great with the gold embossing.


Want a little savings?  Use code TJ10Beth for 10% off your shopping cart.  This code does not include items already on sale.

Our Trip to Ottawa and Area

Living in an apartment, in the city, it felt soooo good to be hiking outdoors.   While we were disappointed in the lack of colour change for this time of year, we were pleased to catch some colour.  Colourful leaves are late this year–and not just in Ottawa.

You are Amazing

Hello friends!  How did you like the March release at Technique Junkies yet?  If you missed it, you can see the new release here on this post.  As a reminder, new releases are on sale through to March 8th.  15% will automatically come off your shopping cart for each new release you purchase.  Use code TJ10Beth for an additional 10% off your new releases for a total of 25% off.  In addition, the code will take 10% off on the remainder of your shopping cart.  It just doesn’t get better than this.  Use code TJ10Beth for the remainder of the month for 10% off your shopping cart.

Dotted Blooms was the background stamp that I used from this release. Do you find colouring relaxing?  If you do, you will like what I did.  I placed my stamp onto my Misti and coloured sections on each bloom with a watercolour marker (ie. Tombow, SU), huffed and pressed down onto white cardstock.  It doesn’t take as long as you might think, and if you’ve got Netflix or a good movie on, the time goes by even quicker.

Sassy Pants

It’s the 15th of the month and it’s time for another edition of Dueling Darlings.  In one corner we have the Dazzlers (me) and in the other we have the Divas.  This month’s hosts are Tracie (Dazzlers) and Barb (Divas) and they chose “Humor” as their theme, because we all need a smile.

This is such a great theme, especially in these times.  Ontario, Canada has opened up to Stage 3, but not dear ol Sarnia and a few other areas.  We have to wait a tad bit longer.  So that means playgrounds are still closed, and so are restaurants, gatherings of more than 10 people, etc.

I received two images in my kit, and I cut one of the images up so I could trace onto the DP and create cute clothes.

The inside of the card has the sentiment “Lil Miss Sassy Pants!”

Dueling Darlings April Kit – Bluebonnets

It’s the 15th of the month and that means the Dazzlers and Divas are dueling again.  This month Debby (Dazzlers) and Suzy (Divas) are the hosts this month.  It’s spring in Texas and that means the bluebonnets are blooming–the highways are lined in blue and soon all the other wild flowers will be blooming too.  Good choice ladies, because nothing is blooming in southern Ontario yet.

Parts of my kit that I used includes the following:

Stamps:  Deadbeat Designs

Ink:  Color Box Pigment ink in Royal Blue

Designer Paper:  Paper Studio

Ribbon:  Offray-off white

Blue Gems:  Parklane

Let’s see what the rest of the Dueling Darlings have for us:

Staying Put

It was brought to my attention that I mentioned travelling to my daughter’s for a week in yesterday’s post.  That was written, and posted to go live, four to five weeks ago.  I never thought to check what I wrote in older posts.  Please note, I’m staying home as we are not allowed to travel.  It’s a disappointment, but will get through this.

Stay safe!
