2 Spritz and Flick Designs - Gina K Designs & Stampin Up

I used the spritz and flick technique on both of these cards...Once again easy peasy!!!!

The winter berries flower and both sentiments are from Gina K Designs.  The snowmen are from Stampin Up!  I colored the snowmen with my prismacolor pencils and turpenoid.  I also added my new favorite (if you couldn't tell) liquid pearls.

I just love exploring all of the techniques from the TJ Newsletter. 


Twisted Wet Stencil - Gina K Designs/Magnolia

So I decided that I wanted to use my favorite technique Wet Stencil but instead of using watercolor crayons I used distress inks spritzed with water. 

Sentiment is from Gina K Designs and snowman is from Magnolia.  I used my liquid pearls as well.

Nice and easy is my motto :)

TTT Faux Tiles - Gelato Direct - Stampin Up!

Here is my entry for this weeks TJ Newsletter - Try That Technique Thursday - Faux Tiles.

I also added a gelato direct using a Stampin Up! snowflake & sentiment.  I cut a spellbinders snowflake in half and embossed them with Hero Arts chalk ink in White.

I embossed the background with my cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.


Gelato Direct - Friendship

This is such a fun technique.  I followed the instructions and stamped this piece.  However, I continued to mist and stamp without reloading the stamp and got quite a few backgrounds with different results.  Some are light, some are more watercolory (if that's a word..LMBO). 

The stamp is a new one from Hero Arts that I really love.  I used one of the lighter pieces to stamp on my sentiment.  Background paper is from Paper Temptress.  I used my new liquid pearls for the buttons on the top right.


Thanksgiving - Gina K Designs

I used a morphed bleach coloring (minus the coloring) because I wanted my leaves to look like fall.  The vellum sentiments technique was layered over the script stamp.  I colored the leaves with Inktence Colored pencils and turpenoid.

Fall stamps are from the Autumn splendor and Autumn Leaves stamp sets from Gina K Designs.  The gold paper is from Paper Temptress.  The red cardstock is from Gina K Designs.  The script stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms.  The fall border stamps are also from Gina K Designs.

I used ink from Stampin Up!


Chalked Resist - Stacked Nesties - Watercolor Gesso

Hello again.  I tried combining some of my favorite techniques into one card.  I love that I can make background patterned paper that matches with my papers and inks. 

The background is done with Watercolor Crayons from Stampin Up! and Gesso.  I like trying new patterns with this technique.  Always a different result...I know shocking!

I outlined the bottom nestie with a gold leaf pen.  Pink nestie is from PaperTemptress.  Stamps and inks also from Stampin Up!


Chalked Resist - Stampin Up!

My first attempt at the Chalked Resist technique from this months TJ Newsletter. 

You can kind of see the snowflakes coming through IRL...Stamps are from Stampin Up!  Background paper from Paper Temptress.

Fall - Alcohol Smoosh - Gina K Designs

This is the Autumn Splendor stamp set from Gina K Designs.  I got the design of the card from StampTV.  I just loved it and I know I will be making more of them.  I used my own designer paper that I created using the TJ Newsletter technique Alcohol Smoosh.  I added my own twist by using embossed leaves.

I masked the pumpkin and added the bucket of apples.  I colored them with my inktense color pencils and turpenoid.

I am going to enter this card into the 2 Sisters - Pumpkin Patch Challenge.

Thanks for visiting :)


Opalite Smoosh - Gina K Designs - Christmas

Here is another Christmas Card that I did using the February 2005 TJ Newsletter technique "Opalite Smoosh".  This is a great looking technique with the only downfall that it took a long time to fully dry.  I used brilliance reinkers (didn't have any opalite reinkers).

I used the Winter Wonderland stamp set from Gina K Designs.  The green, white and blue metallic papers are from Paper Temptress.  It a lot moe brilliant IRL.

Thanks for looking.

Herringbone - Faux Cross Stitch - Christmas

This dreamweaver stencil screamed for this technique.  I used the herringbone technique from December, 2009 and the Faux Crosstitch technique from December, 2005.

I used Stampin Up! inks.  TFL


Magic Meduzia - Christmas

I used the Magic Meduzia technique on this one...I love how it gives the WOW results that I love...

The snowflake, reinkers and paper are all from Stampin Up! I used the liquid pearls on the top and bottom.



Shimmering Silk - Double Emboss & Cut Christmas

Well as I continue my quest for 60 Christmas Cards (before Christmas) I pulled out some oldies but goodies from the TJ Newsletter vault.  I love these techniques because they are so easy and beautiful.

This one is the Shimmering Silk technique from the December 08 newsletter along with the current Double Emboss & Cut technique.

I used stamps from Stampin Up!.  The paper I used to Double Emboss is from Paper Temptress.

This is so much more shimmery IRL...

Background Whimsey - copic method - Dustin Pike

Here is another Christmas Card that I tried using a digistamp from Dustin Pike.  I twisted and turned him in Word and printed him out.  Then I colored the main image with the same copics that I used when I airbrushed the background paper.

I used liquid pearls on the Stampin Up! ribbon that I used.  I cut him out using the out of the nestie box (such a fav).  I love the look of the Whimsey from the TJ Newsletter from the June 2010 edition.

Vintage Art, Double Emboss & Cut - Doodle Pantry

Here is a birthday card for my grandfather who turned 85 this year. 

This image is from Doodle Pantry.  I am entering it into this months challenge.  I colored the image with copics.  The background uses the Vintage Art technique along with the out of the nestie box and the new Double Emboss & Cut (which I love).  Ribbon is from stampin up!  I used my pearl pen to create the three pearls.

Thanks for visiting :)

Christmas - House Mouse - Out of the Nestie Box

Here is another Christmas Card I did using a new house mouse stamp colored with copics.

I embossed the white background with my cuttlebug folder.  I used nestabilities on the circles and tag which I added color with my distress inks and blending tool.  I used the TJ Newsletter "Out of the Nestie Box" of my new favorites...

I used my bow easy for the bow and added some liquid pearls for a little added bling.
