Technique Junkies July release hop

Good Morning!!!!! 
Happy Canada Day to all my friends this side of the border and welcome to Technique Junkies Stamps July release blog hop. If you've been hopping already, you've arrived from my dear friend Ceal's blog. I have been on several design teams with Ceal over the years, but just recently met her face to face at a retreat in Texas in May. She is one of the sweetest people I know and I look forward to a time when we can meet again!!!!

This first card was created with the shells from the Seashells set
I stamped the shells in Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink
I sponged the shells with IO Hybrid inks in Blush and Pistachio.
I created the bottom panel by stamping the Fun Starfish  background and added a touch of Nuvo Drops in Golden Sunset. Lastly, I used the sentiment from last summers Watermelon Summer set. Although there are two amazing sentiments in this set, I could NOT resist how this little stamp fit so perfectly on the card!!!!

LOVE these shells and I can see myself using them time and time again!

I was SO excited to get this awesome Inside and Out sentiment set!
There are FIVE awesome sentiments....... Sassy , Silly and Sensational~~~

This sentiment spoke to me and I just had to pair it up with this vintage lady called Red Lipstick Day
Super fun!!!!

I have to tell you, I think the sets are completely adorable this month and had fun colouring up this adorable Clam Shell

The little eyes peeping out just make me want to smile!!!!
I watercoloured the background and used the Seagrass set as a backdrop

Lastly, I used Emerald Creek's Baked Texture by Seth Apter in Dirty Sand
for the Ocean Floor!!! Love this chunky Embossing Powder. Every Ocean card needs bubbles and the Nuvo Jewel Drops in Seabreeze

So that's it for now, I'll have some other fun projects to show you later this month.
Don't forget the new release stamps are on sale until the 10th of July and you can use my code to save 10% on any other stamps that aren't new release.

Hope you enjoyed my shares
Now head on over to my Bestie Jeanne's blog, 'cause I know she is going to have some amazing blog candy for you!!!

XX's and Oh's


  1. All of your cards are delightful, Vicki! Love that clam peeking out :)

  2. I love your use of intense color - I get so tired of pastels and timid cards.

  3. Beautiful cards and use of colors.

  4. So pretty Vickie! I love all the textures you used on the clamshell card!

  5. Your 1st card is so absolutely stunning! Love!!! And the 2nd, OMG, that is so stinkin' funny!!! Have a friend that is just starting divorce proceedings after being separated for a year. Her husband never cooked nor cleaned. She needs a card like this to make her smile! I'm putting my stamp order together as I hop along :-)

  6. Your first card is absolutely beautiful! Love the second and third, too!

  7. OH my gosh, your cards are all so lovely. I can't stop staring at them.
