Enjoy make and take


This pretty combination is the card we are making tonight at the West Springfield StamperCon Rubber Stamp Show! Using our Silhouette stamps and some stenciled ink blending, 80 people will make this card at the Design and Treasure. The show is from 10-5 on Friday and 10-4 on Saturday. This will be our last time exhibiting at the Big E since this is Technique Junkies' last year of show travel. Hope to see you there! Here is the info for the show:

Lizard Illusion

 Doesn't this lizard look like it can just crawl off the page? Between the gloss over the colored lizard (from our Lovely Lizards set) and the little bit of grey shading under it, is a nice little illusion. The blue and green ink-blended background uses the Messy Dot Grid stencil from @acolorfullifedesigns. The Whatcha Doin' stamp is a fun way to finish it off, too! Everything is from Technique Junkies.

Beautiful Wildflower Corners

 The combination of the Advice from a Wildflower stamp and the Wildflowers Corner stamp are just so soothing to me. These two red rubber stamps from Technique Junkies were specifially made to go together to create this stunning combination. Today I colored the Wildflower Corner with Copic Markers, but this is just as beautiful with colored pencils or even in black and white!

Memorial Day

 As I spend Memorial Day today with my family and friends, I will certainly take a moment to express my gratitude to those who have given their lives for our country. My card today uses the Technique Junkies Patriotic Corners with the America Beats True in their honor.

A sparkling Birthday

 It's hard to seen in the picture, but this is a super-glittery card! This uses @aladine IZINK Diamonds with with the Birthday Cake Stencil from @acolorfullifedesigns. The Happy birthday sentiment is from the Another Year Set. It's really a shame the camera doesn't pick up the vibrancy of this card - it is super pretty!

Meadow Sprigs Friendship Card

 Our Meadow Sprigs stamp is so very pretty and works so well with this sentiment from the Lavender Friendship set. This particular sentiment is perfect for friendship, encouragement, thinking of you, and so much more. Kraft paper and purple are a winner together too! Just lightly colored with colored pencils to highlight the lavender and wheat sprigs, and you have a finished card. Both rubber stamps are from Technique Junkies.

 Our Beer Glasses background just makes me....thirsty! Our card today uses the Sudsy Stuff background wit the Beer Glasses background over it. After coloring my mugs, I used Diamond Glaze over each one to add glossy, dimensional highlights. Cheers!

 The new Technique Junkies Advice from a Wildflower stamp and the Wildflower Corner stamp were made for one another. What I love about them is that they don't need much embellishment to be beautiful! Today's one-layer card was simply colored with colored pencils. It is soft and lovely. Both stamps are available from Technique Junkies.

Contrast in Blues and Greens


I love blues and greens in my cardmaking - and contrasting them with black just makes them pop! Today I used the Cement background in blue, then stamped it with the Silhouette stems in green before layering my top piece. I applied blues and greens through the @acolorfullifedesigns 6 shadow stencil, then stamped that with the silhouette stems and Life is Beautiful stamp. Everything here is available from Technique Junkies.
