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 shines...am 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:
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:
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: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
