Technique Junkies Are Hopin'!

It's a brand new month and that means new goodies from Technique Junkie Stamps! I'm happy that you've happened by today, but I don't want you to miss any of the inspiration!  So, I'm sending you back to where it begins--over on the TJ Designer Blog--be prepared to be inspired!

Beth Norman always I right?  Her projects are always so creative and inspiring!  I hope you have enjoyed her blog as much as I do!

I had fun, myself, exploring color and various products as I prepared for this month's hop!  I simply love the new Fresh Chevron background and think it is super versatile!  In addition to the chevron background on this fun shaker card, I've used the following:

For the above card, I've used the Brand NEW, Live Love Laugh Frame along with Lover's Silhouette.  First, I created a resist using the frame by heat embossing it on white card stock.  I inked over the embossed frame with Lover's Silhouette and then buffed the ink from the embossed image.  It's a great finishing touch for such a beautiful image.  I think this combination makes a great anniversary or wedding card!  The background was created using the new Fresh Chevron background, as well.

My next two cards feature the same background, Celestial Dangles, with two completely different looks.  One is achieved by heat embossing the image and then applying distress inks:
I added the perfect sentiment from DreamQuotes and a few sequins to finish things off!  The sentiment reads:
"My dreams know no boundaries.  They fly freely on wings of light to the moon, the stars and beyond."

My final project uses the same background, Celestial Dangles, but in a much more colorful way, using distress inks direct to the stamp surface:
To add my sentiment from With Sympathy, I stamped it on vellum---I just couldn't completely cover the colorful background.  The vellum was the perfect solution!  The dangles still show through and complete the heavenly feel of the card.

I hope you've found inspiration here!  Your next stop on our hop is  Jerri Jones!!  I'm always excited to see her creations!  Enjoy!

Be Awesome!  TTFN, Jane


  1. It's always so great to visit Jane. Your creations are always so creative and inspiring. I really love how you paired the Celestial Dangles with the Sympathy sentiment. Works perfectly. I also really like the chevron card with the lovers silhouette. Fabulous.

  2. Oh, Jane you truly outdid yourself. Your cards are such eye candy. Everyone of them is so unique. I think I'm going to have to get the outline that you used on the Lover's Silhouette. As you said it makes for a nice wedding or anniversary card and I'm always in need of those.

  3. These cards are so cute. I love the creative use of the chevron stamp

  4. You have a bunch of wonderful cards, all so differnt.
