Christmas Whimsy with Technique Junkies Stamps!


Christmas is coming sooner than we know and it sure felt like it when I left work today. BRRRRRR!!!!!

I have a couple of fun cards I created with the Christmas Whimsy Background Stamp  and the  Snowman Whimsy  Stamp



I coloured in the background and the snowman with Copic Markers

I used my circle die cuts to make a window in the background, adding an acetate window and adhering the snowman to it. I used some foam tape in behind to crate a shaker box.

Lastly, I added the Merry Christmas  2 Sentiment



I I didn't want my cut out to go to waste, so I created a clean and simple card using it.
The sentiment is created with the Joy Stencil

Both fun cards to make!!!!

Happy Stamping

and here's a code for a little discount!!!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!


Happy World Card Making Day!!!!

I will take some time today to create, between getting things ready for our Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow. As I'm typing, I can hear little Sydney "talking" in her sleep. She makes the sweetest noises when she is dreaming, especially the little barks. 



I created this card with the newly released stamps from Technique Junkies.

To make this card I started by adding some Pine Sprays to the card base with images from the Season's Greetings Stamp set. I coloured up the Holly Images from the same set  with Copic Markers and cut them out to use on my card. I made the Background using the Birches background and Tan  and Mist Ink from Impression Obsession I then sprayed the Birch Trees with Mixed Metals shimmering bliss. It's hard to see her, but the shimmer is so pretty!!!

I stamped the Snowman Whimsy Stamp and coloured him with Copic Marker and used paper piecing for his scarf. Lastly, I assembled it all and was so pleased with the results!!!!

Technique Junkies Stamps October Release



Good Morning!!!!

It's that time again!!! TIme to showcase some new RUBBAH!!!!!
I always look forward to showing you some of the new Designs for Technique Junkies Stamps

These two images screamed Vintage to me!!!

For my first card, I must confess I searched Pinterest for Vintage Christmas Cards to get some ideas!

I coloured Santa with Gifts with Copic Marker after creating a little background with a colorful life grunge dot stencil and denim coloured ink.
I actually cut my coloured image out and glued it to the middle of the card.
I stamped the Merry Christmas 2 sentiment in red, because that was a common practice on vintage cards!! Lastly, I added some Nellies effect snow for dimension and sponged around the card in grey ink. I added some white gel pen dots and dashes to create my little blizzard and added some silver 

This jolly little Santa reminds me of a 1950's style card. My Grandmother saved all of her cards, so I've seen many vintage cards in my day!!!


Moving forward a decade or two, we've got a V dub!!! Peace and Love man!!! I just adore this sweet image and sentiment!!! I coloured the image with Copic and jazzed the card up with a little ribbon and some stencilling with the Wonky Harlequin Super Fun!!!
