New Design Team for 2016!!!!

Hello Dreamers!
I hope you had a great holiday season!  We certainly enjoyed our holidays here! We had three gatherings - two for Christmas and one for my mother's birthday! Great times with friends and family!  Still have lots of left overs and cookies. LOL.  I put some of the cookies in the freezer for later.  Some cookies freeze really well.  Okay....on to my big announcement!!!

I have accepted a spot on the Technique Junkies Design Team!!!

I am really excited about working with the Junkies in the coming year.  There is a blog hop each month showcasing the new release stamps and lots of projects through out the month on the Design Junkies blog.

As you probably know, Technique Junkies has a long history of publishing their Newsletter and CD's with all kinds of fabulous technique ideas and tutorials.  Pat Huntoon, the owner, also now carries a line of art stamps!  Check out all the gorgeous stamps here.

To celebrate, I have made a fun card with Technique Junkies stamps.  I used shades of aqua and teal.  This seems to be a favorite color scheme with me lately.  I also painted my bedroom in a pale aqua and made teal drapes.  Looks scrumptious!  I digress.  Here is the card.

Stamps: Magic Strands, Click Your Heels from Technique Junkies
CS: White, teal, and black
Ink: Peacock Feathers and Black Soot Distress Inks
Black Tulle
Fabri-tac glue
3D Zots

Make It:

  • Make a card from teal CS and add a layer of black CS
  • On white CS stamp the Magic Strands stamp several times with Peacock Feathers ink -dry with heat gun
  • Distress with Peacock Feathers ink until all the white CS is covered

  • On white CS stamp the feet with Peacock Feathers ink 
  • Layer with black CS
  • Apply Fabri-Tac glue to the back of the stamped shoes piece and gather a piece of tulle pressing it into the glue to hold in place
  • Add this piece to the card with 3D Zots
  • Stamp the sentiment with Black Soot ink

Isn't this a fun card!  Love it.  I will send this to someone special.  There are so many super fun stamps available from Technique Junkies!  I am in stampers heaven!  LOL.

  1. First of all Karen, many congratulations on joining the Technique Junkies Design Team. The card that you've produced here is fabulus and I love the background that you've created.
