Since my photography on this was not spectacular, here is the recipe for Witches Brew (from the stamp), if you are so inclined to cook today:
Three Purple Tadpoles
Two Pinches of Ghost Dust
A dash of Creole
Frog Warts (add to taste)
A split hair from a Queen Bee
One cup of Camel Spit
Two tsp. of Frozen Rainbow
*Mix thoroughly, simmer over low heat for 4 hours. Serve Ice Cold.
Hope you enjoy your brew!

I originally bought these stamps to scrapbook pictures from my son's Boy Scout camping trip. They are just too cute to let languish on my shelf, though. They seemed a perfect match for the Camouflage Technique from the October 2008 issue of the TJ Newsletter, too.
I love my Bear card!
Stamps: Close to My Heart
Friday, October 24, 2008
I have a little confession: I struggle with this kind of thing. I usually approach them with a moderate level of dread, since I know that 3-D stamped things usually end up looking like a Kindergartner made them when they are crafted from my hands. I actually like this one, though.
The leaves were done using the Stamp Rolling technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter's 1st Edition CD. Stamps are from Close to My Heart.
I hope my SIL likes this little gift...

- They're already mixed. No recipe, no mess
- They're ridiculously shimmery
- They dry on glossy or non-porous surfaces, so they're perfect for use on acetate or metal
- They come in 35 spectacular colors
- They're non-toxic
- They're water-based
One thing I discovered while working with them is that when I wanted a different color, I simply colored my image with marker underneath, then painted over that with the Shimmerz Butter Cream -- it was like having custom colors at my disposal!

The card uses the Designer Tile Technique from the August 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I especially love this skull -- after stamping it I covered it with VersaMark, covered it with glittering translucent embossing powder, heat set it and cut it out. I love the shimmer of it! I have a close-up below.
I hope my partner likes this card!
The stamps and paper are all from SU.

I just love this Santa from Rubberstamp Avenue. It is my all-time favorite. To me, this IS Santa. I couldn't resist using him for the Technostamper Sketch Challenge (#40) this week!
I stamped my Santa in black, then colored him with chalks. i edged him in gold, layered in white, then put him on a rich piece of Faux handmade paper (August 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter). That is layered on a piece of blue embossed paper, over a white card. The snowflakes are felt, and I added glitter to them.
Doesn't it just leave you wishin' for December 24th?

In any case, this was made using the Faux Dichroic Technique, on of the CD 6 Bonus Techniques. These pieces are really pretty in real life! Sorry the pictures don't capture that...
