Joint Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joint Blog Hop!
Three Fabulous Companies have come together to bring you this Hop.
Technique Junkie Newsletter, eclectic Paperie and Sweet "n Sassy Stamps. All the participants will be making a project from the TJ CD Great Gifts. For my project I have chosed the
Pencil Bouquet Box.

I hope that you can see all the detail in all of the photos. As it is a box, I wanted to show you all sides. Also, as you can see, I used Bic pens in place of pencils. There are so many wonderful techniques on the Great Gifts CD, it was dificult to decide on one to showcase for this blog hop.

The products I used for this technique are as follows:
From Sweet "n Sassy Stamps I used the Together Silhouettes clear stamp set. It's a charmer isn't it?
From eclectic Paperie I used; Lily Bee- Persnickty paper line, Canvas tags, butcher's twine, buttons and woven flower from Maya Road.

Colorwash Alcohol WOW!

This technique from TJ's is so much fun. Mostly because it is different every time and the results are surprisingly beautiful! You can see what I mean if you look at the two layers, both done with the Colorwash Alcohol technique. The layer with the blue, and the main background layer are so different, but done the same way, with different inks of course. You can find this technique in the August/ September issue of the Technique Junkie Newssletter. If you haven't subscribed yet, you can do it here:
Thanks for stopping by. Leave some love in the form of a comment.
See you again soon,

Plaid Silhouettes from the new CD 10

This is one of the bonus techniques from the newest TJ CD...CD 10. There are 100 techniques on this CD, certainly enough to keep us busy for awhile, LOL! I strongly encourage you to purchase it and you can do that here:

This card uses all G studio stamps except for the sentiment and I can't remember who made that stamp. All paper is from the Paper Temptress. You can check out all of Patricia's yummy papers here:
It's a new and improved website with a lot of new products. If you are a paper junkie...this is the place to go!
I forgot to mention that the fan adornment is from the June/July issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. The technique is called Scalloped Circle Fan.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your support!

Color Blocking with a twist

Hello, I am so pleased that you stopped by. This card uses the color blocking technique with a bit of a twist to it. Instead of the traditional technique, I used different shaped solid stamps to create the color block background. It's a very colorful and cheerful card IRL.
The stamps I used are Club Stamp (sentiment) and the Asian inspired tree is from I Love Rubber Stamps.
I have been neglecting my blog and I hope to be posting on a regular  basis. I live in hope, LOL!

Technique Strips

I was able to put this card together in no time at all because I have all of my technique scraps in one box. As you know...we NEVER throw anything out, so keeping all the scraps comes in really handy. I keep all of my technique scraps in a photo box all their own labeled "Backgrounds" which couldn't have made this card any easier. 
I hope this card inspires you to give it a try, and I thank you so much for visiting. Please come back real soon!
