Throwback Thursday: Watercolor Birds

 Throwback Thursday brings us to this pretty card using the Technique Junkies Watercolor Birds stamp from 2017 - If you like to color or watercolor on your cards, this stamp is for you! The sketchy style is so pretty with this image. I paired mine with the Trust Your Journey stamp (I probably would have used something else today, but this is a throwback card, after all. Who know what I was thinking in 2017?)

In any case, both stamps may be found here:

Jumping Fish

 The Technique Junkies Jumping Fish Linograph is perfect with the Swirly Waves background! Both are easily colored with just a few swipes of ink and are perfect for masculine cards - or any fishing enthusiast! Both the stamps are found here:

Sarcastic Housewife


I had this cool background using the Linen Dots stamp jus sitting on my desk for the last week or two - I was creating classes and this was a sample piece. I also had the Happy Housewife stamped from some classes I held last year - so what to do? Put them together! Our Sarcasm stamp is a perfect way to finish the card, too. All three stamps are here:

My Sister My Friend

 The Flower and Wing Silhouette rubber stamp by Technique Junkies is unique because the flowers and butterflies on the silhouette are open, ready for light coloring. Here I used glitter markers/pens to make them pop. The sentiment is My Sister My Friend, and the bottom herringbone portion is washi tape. The two stamps may be found here:

Big Bold Flowers as a smaller panel

 This card uses the Technique Junkies Old World Script stamp as a background, and is topped with just a short panel portion of the Big Bold Flowers background stamp. I originally did this cardin all black and white, but that pop of color is everything! Both stamps may be found here:

Shopping Online

 I love how the Mid-century Borders stamps are so versatile - whether used alone, together, or as a background, they add instant interest. In this example, I used them as a background and colored them with markers, then topped it with the Shopping Online Sentiment. The wine glass is from the Wine with Friends Stamp Set. All of the stamps may be found here:

Friendship Flowers

 Our new Flower Sweep Red Rubber stamp has a little secret - the flowers face in several directions, so you can place the sweep in whatever orientation you need. I liked it in the top left when used with this sentiment from the Lavender Friendship Sentiments Stamp Set. The image was colored with colored pencils and Gamsol. Both stamps may be found here:

Jumping fish

 Looking for a masculine card? This one should fit the bill! Our Jumping Fish Linograph rubber stamp is aweome for any fisherman (or fisherwoman)! I stamped it twice so I could pop up that fish, too, and added a bunch of shine with Glossy Glaze, adding to realism. The stamp is 15% off through March 8th, too.

The sentiment here is from the Born to Fish stamp set. Both are here:

Flowers are Like Friends


Our pretty Flower border has so many creative uses. Today I paired it with the Flowers are Like Friends stamp.I added some of the lilies to the top panel to add more color. Both stamps are here:

Faith Requires Trust


Our new Faith Requires Trust rubber stamp is perfect with our praying hands stamp. The Faith stamp is 15% off through March 8th, too. You can find both stamps here:

No Good Advice

 Oh just slight anounts of snark here... Today I used the newly released Mid-Century Modern Borders rubber stamps over dye-sprayed background (Aladine IZINK dye Ink Spray). I added one of the (previously released) dudes from the Stud Muffins stamp set, then I toped it off with one of the sentiments from the new Inside Out: No Good Advice, set of 10. All of the stamps may be found here:

Big Beautiful Flowers

 Our Big Bold Flowers background is equally pretty whether you are coloring each of the flowers or just adding color id an alternate way. Here the ink was added to different spots of the rubber stamp directly before stamping, acheived using mini ink pads. Using this technique is great for people who do not love to color! Both the Big Bold Flowers and the Feel like Sunshine stamps are part of the March new stamp release and are available here:

Kittens are angels

 This cute ink-blended Kitty Face Stencil in the background from @acolorfullifedesigns is just perfect! I topped it today with one of the sentiments from the Time Spent with Cats set, and the cat from the Little Black Cat stamp. To "erase" the sentiment from the Little Black Cats stamp, I cut it out, then applied more black ink over the cat to make it a solid black. The stencil and stamps are here:

African Dancers

 Today's card uses the Arican Dancers stamp from Technique Junkies along with one of the sentiments from the African Proverbs set. The background uses the Dotty Double Waves stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. The stamps may be found here:

Nurses are Angels...

 Nursing is such a noble calling - something I couldn't do, but I have mad respect for those who can and do! Several years ago my son was ill and the nurses that cared for hime are a very large part of how well he recovered.

My card celebrating nurses uses the Technique Junkies Nurses are Angels stamp with the Greek Tapestry Background stamp. Both are here:

Shimmery Birthday

 Who doesn't want a birthday card that shimmers? I used the new Stars and Flourishes Birthday over the Sparkling Celebration Background. Everythink was sprayed using the Aladine IZINK Shiny Sprays. This is a really happy card! Everything may be found here from Technique Junkies:

Cat time is never waster


Today's super-simple card uses one of the sentiments from the Time Spent with Cats set along with Patterned paper. How could I pass up using this retro-fun kitty paper? The stamp is here:

The Horse's Motion


The spirit of the horse really shines through with this, doesn't it? The motion feel is boosted with the use of the Rays Embossing Folder (Time Holtz). The folder was inked with brown ink before being embossed, resulting in highlights from the folder's crevices. After putting this together it was sprayed with the Antique Pearl IZINK Dye Spray from Aladine for an all-over shimmer. The Technique Junkies Horse Linograph stamp and spray may be found here:

Tuesday Margarita

 Margarita. I am not a huge drinker, but I do love a splash of tequila from time to time!

I used the woman from the deconstructed Need a Crown stam and paired her with the A Margarita stamp. The Make Lemonade background was stamping in green over a Aladine IZINK Dye Ink Spray background. The stamps and sprays may be found here:

Lap Therapist

 Who hasn't needed the comfort of a furry friend? Whether your animal of choice is a cat, dog, or other mammal, there is something very zen about having them on your lap, exchanging love and pets. I know I have buried my face in dog fur many times when I was in need!

Today I used the Fluffy Cats stamp and The Best Therapist stamp to create my square card. Both stamps are from Technique Junkies and are below:

Red White and Blue Birthday


The new Star and Flourish Birthday Stamp has such a happy vibe, doesn't it? Today I paired it with the Hanging Stars stamp. As I was making this I realized that the red, white and blue color scheme makes it looks a little 4th-of-Julyish. I just so happen to have a brother born on July 4th, so I will be holding this card aside for him - it's nice to have something made in advance! The rubber stamps used are from Technique Junkies and may be found here:

For the Love of Giraffes

 Giraffes are my favorite animals! Today's card celebrates everything about my long-necked friends. I used the new Giraffe Border stamp, the Savannah Giraffes stamp, then I deconstructed the Advice from a Giraffe stamp and cut apart the sentiments. I layered that on some giraffe print paper I had in my stash. I know its a bit funky, but I love it nonetheless! All stamps by Technique Junkies and may be found here:

Valentine Friend

 Today is Valentine's Day - a great day for love! It's important, also, to remember that not everyone has a partner to celebrate with. Today's card is for a very special friend who is not partnered - but needs to be celebrated just the same! I used non-Valentine colors for my card today - just a celebration of the person, not the day. The background stamp is the new Greek Tapestry background from Technique Junkies, and the sentiment is from the Dear Friend sentiments (set of 5). Both stamps are here:
