Hippity Hop.....Technique Junkie September Blog Hop

It's hop time again!  Like a reward for getting those kiddos off to school.....just in the nick of time!!  Today, the Technique Junkie Designers are prepared to get you in the holiday mood!  If you've not come here by way of the hop, WELCOME!  But, please head to the beginning so you do not miss any of the inspiration!

If you've been hoping along, you have just left Beth Norman's blog.  She always does such amazing work....don't you agree? Makes me want to just go out and shop!!  Speaking of that, keep in mind that all of the September images are on SALE until September 8th!

My first card features a classic Halloween image, Black Cat......he looks so spooky!!  The sentiment, Fright Night is also part of the new release so, make sure to get them both!!  For my background, I paired the Leaf Repeat background stamp with a water coloring technique that smooshes color on using a craft sheet.

My Christmas card is a simpler, cleaner design.  The beautiful Ornament image is highlighted by a block of color created with distress inks.  The image itself is heat embossed in gold and then colored with distress markers.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is also heat embossed with gold.  Save for fussy cutting all of the ornaments, this would make a great card for the upcoming season!

Your next stop is Jerri's blog!  I think she is fantastic and soooooo creative!  I'm sure you will enjoy her inspiration!  TTFN--

Don't forget to be awesome!  Jane


  1. Love that background you achieved on your black cat Jane. I had fun with this one too.

  2. Love your colourful black cat card. It really pops. Your ornament is a pretty interesting colour combination. I love non traditional colours for Christmas.

  3. your cards are adorable as usual. I love the way you tilted your ornament. So cute!
