Technique Junkies September Release Sale and Video*

I can’t believe it is September already.  Temperatures are cooling down at night, leaves are starting to change, and it’s getting dark earlier.  The joy September 1st brings me is the Technique Junkies new release and sale.  I had a lot of fun working with the Halloween stamps.  I so love making seasonal cards, and Halloween is one of my favourite occasions to surprise someone with a happy mail day.  One way to make a Halloween card spooky is to add misty fog.  You will learn how to do that in my video below.  Enjoy.

Before we get to the video, let me remind you how the sale works.  From the 1st to the 8th, you will receive a 15% automatic discount on each new release you purchase.  But, that’s not all.  If you use my code TJ10Beth, you will receive 10% off the remainder of your shopping cart. I encourage you to try the shimmering bliss sprays and the new blending brushes.  Wow!

For the real lover of stamping there is a release called Gotta Have it All Bundle, which includes every single stamp from the September Release.  A picture of the Gotta Have it All Bundle is at the bottom of this post.

Enjoy the video!

Life’s Little Blessings

Be grateful every day for life’s little blessings.  I’m grateful for a wonderful month of August where I have been surrounded by family and friends to celebrate birthdays, have barbecues, celebrating Al’s and my 3rd wedding anniversary, meeting my new granddaughter, boating with family, meeting my elementary school friend (um, I’m I turned 49 on the 9th) where we picked up right where we left off.  The list goes on and on.

If you look very close, you will see Dancing Sprigs stencil on my Gelliplate background.   This stencil is available at Technique Junkies for 10% off, as well as your other items (aside from items already on sale) simply by using my code TJ10Beth.

Over my Gelliplate background I heat embossed in gold, using Love Harlequin stamp.

I stamped out newly released Life’s Little Blessings before I tore my paper.  I did this because I didn’t want to over tear, or under tear, my handmade decorative paper.  Whalaa.  Finished.

Thanks for stopping by.  You just made my day.  Just another of life’s little blessings.

Color Bursts anyone?

August has been so fulfilling creativity wise.  Technique Junkies August release has gone hand-in-hand with my Gelliplate, Color Bursts, inking over stencils, etc.

By spritzing Color Bursts with a lot of water, they become runny and blend together as seen on the background behind Just Beautiful stamp.  The background was blended using blending brushes and Swirl Grid stencil.

Interested in a 10% discount?  Just use my code TJ10Beth for 10% off (aside from items already on sale).

Kiss my Ace

Hello friends!  I’ve been having lots of fun with my GelliPlate.  I get together with my girlfriend and we play all day.  I am particularly pleased with the look of Tennis Racquet Patent and Tennis Sentiments, set of 3.  I hear time and time again how stampers love Technique Junkies sarcastic and punny stamps.  I do too.

The shape of my yellow background works perfectly with Tennis Racquet Patent, don’t you think?

If my card captures your attention, you may be interested to know there is a Gotta Have it all Bundle.  Use code TJ10Beth for a 10% discount on your shopping cart.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello there folks!  Today’s little project is just a little something I made in a workshop pre-Covid.  The colours coordinate so well with the colours in my home and sits on the wall just as you enter my art room.  I do miss live, in-life workshops, but I must admit I’m enjoying on-line workshops.

Currently, I am signed up for Crushing on Cardstock, hosted by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner.  This dynamic duo is going to teach us many different ways to use up our cardstock scraps and so much more.  I’m so excited because my scrap bin is overflowing.  As I sign up for classes, I will let you know about them.

Relax and Renew

Hello fellow stampers.  By the 25th of each month I have all of my TJ cards made for the following month.  Today I chose to post this particular card because I’m doing just that–relaxing, calming my mind, and renewing my spirit as I’m on vacation for the week.  So far it has been quite the whirlwind of a week–and it’s only Tuesday, LOL.

My daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters are down from Ottawa, and if luck wasn’t on our side, my son’s schedule has been free for the last two days, so my little chicks are together again.  Yesterday we all had a barbecue out at our trailer and today the boys went boating while my daughter and I went to Good Will.  Score!

Any guesses as to how my background was made?  It’s Gellipaper.  Cool, eh!?  I am having so much fun with my Gelliplate.  My camera has some samples of Gellipapers created from the 3+ hour workshop.

My card uses an August stamp release called Relax Your Body combined with Dancing Sprigs stencil.  These, and other items in your shopping cart, are 10% off just by using my code TJ10Beth.

Thanks for stopping by!

Memories sweet and fragrant

Memories sweet and fragrant reminds me of summers spent with my grandmother.  One of the things she liked to do was to take us mushroom hunting in the woods.

Believe it or not, my background was created using my GelliPlate.  My girlfriend and I get together to work on backgrounds and try new things.  For example, we spent an afternoon experimenting with kitchen products purchased at a thrift store.  We dipped parts of the item into black paint and pressed off black paint.  My favourite items were a 2″ mini kitchen grater and a potatoe masher. It’s safe to visit me for dinner because these items are strictly for artwork.


My background uses the Dancing Sprigs Stencil.  I just love how my Gelli paper turned out.  Stamped over top is Forest Floor.  You can get 10% off of these products, or any other product by using code TJ10Beth.

If these products intrigue you, you might be interested in our Gotta Have it All Bundle seen below.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!
