Too Dark to read - but not too late

Today is November 8th - the final day for the Technique Junkies New Release sale. Today is the last day that you can take 15% off the new release stamps, so I thought I would show you one more piece using the stamps...

The Too Dark to Read focal image stamp is funny, and remarkable easy to use. I simply inked it with Dark Brown Chalk ink and stamped on Neenah Solar white paper. Chalk ink is really the best ink for stamping bold or silhouette stamps -- see how perfect the image is? That is due to the ink, in my opinion.

The area in the middle of this card is a piece of designer paper - I loved the look of the book pages under the stamp. The background is the ABCs background from the Technique Junkies line (previously released).

Make sure to get your discount today, and remember that all of the Christmas stamps are 20% off through November 13th, too! 
Have a great day!

Get a Bigger Bow

Yesterday we released 15 new stamps at Technique Junkies, and had a blog hop to celebrate. I just love this month's release, and I can't help making more and more artwork from the new stamps! Today am using the  Bigger Bow stamp over the Linen Dots background. The Bigger Bow image was colored using my Studio 71 markers. The background is simply 3 colors of distress inks that I swiped directly onto the background, then stamped onto light blue paper.

Remember that the November New Release Stamps are 15% off through November 8th, including these two stamps. 

Have a great day!

November Blog Hop - Last Stop, last hop!

Welcome! Today is November 1st, and that means we have a blog hop to celebrate the release of 15 NEW stamps in the Technique Junkies line.If this is your first stop, I encourage you to take a moment to go the the Design Team Blog to start the hop fresh - you will be directed to all of the amazing creations from the Technique Junkies design team from there. If you have come here from Chris' blog, you are in the right place. Hopefully, you have seen all of the gorgeous artwork an are feeling inspired!

As usual, the November Release Stamps are 15% off through November 8th. So take a look at what I made, and then go on off the shop! Keep in mind that all of the Christmas category stamps are 20% off through November 13th, too -- you can take advantage of BOTH sales!

First up: I'm Fluffy. This simple stamp says it all. As a fluffy girl, I can identify with this stamp. Like the background? It is Nuvo Glimmer Paste through A Colorful Life Stencil, and it will covered in this Friday's email/You Tube video. It's pretty special, no?

Next up is my Kitty Comfort Card, with a Paint Rings Background. I got a little carried away with the gold glimmer, but I LOVE the background, and the sweet love between the kitties. 

To make this background, I simply sprayed watercolor paper with two Dylusions sprays, then sprayed Art Anthology Gold Fairy Dust Spray directly onto the Paint Rings stamp. I stamped the image and let the spray dry. Look at it close up - gorgeous, isn't it?

And finally for today, I have this happy message for you:
I thought the Grey Days stamp just SCREAMED for a rainbow behind it! I simply swiped Distress Inks in rows in the background, and hightlighted the Raindrops on the (previously released) Big Drops stamp with Glassy Glaze. Makes me happy just to look at it!

I made more from this month's release, so stay tuned to my blog later this week.  Hopefully you have been inspired -- time to shop and save some money!

Thanks for coming by today...
