From the Artistic Effects CD

Hello everyone, I am back with two lovely techniques from the Technique Junkie Artistic Effects CD. There are 40 techniques on the CD using Gelatos, Goosebumps, Gesso, Distress Stains, and Resist  Sprays.you can purchase the CD here.

My first card uses the Gesso Frames Tutorial

This is a very simple technique with lovely results. It comes together in a flash and can be used as a last minute card for any occasion.
The stamp is Palm Frond from TJ #SD292
My second card uses the Gelatos Rub technique also from the Artistic Effects CD.
 I must say that I had a lot of fun with this technique. I like getting a bit messy I think. This card uses a panel stamp from TJ which I am unable to give you the details about.  (for some strange reason I get an error message when trying to open page 3) Go to Panel stamps and you will find it there.
The sentiment stamp that is peeking through the sheer ribbon is from TJ #SS2a Simple Sentiments Set2, Style a.
You can find all of the TJ stamps here

That's all for now. Until I am back again....don't forget to get your fingers inky!

It's All About Stencils!

Jackie K here once again, I have made 2 cards and both techniques are from the Sensational Stencils CD. These are only 2 of the 40 techniques on the CD. It was difficult to choose the two I would do for this post. It's a wonderfully creative CD, and if you enjoy working with stencils you should seriously consider getting it.
You can purchase it here and if you are a Technique Junkie you can get 10% off by using the code TJ10

Let's get to my cards. LOL!

 This card uses the Background Stenciling Technique. This is a fun, fast, easy and effective technique suitable for any occasion.

This card uses the Pastel Stick Stencil Technique. Your possibilities are endless with this technique, limited only by your imagination!
There is no blue in my card. My computer is acting up and I'm lucky I have gotten this posted at all.
All stamps are Technique Junkie stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time stay creative!

One of my favorite techniques!

 This background technique comes out different every time. I enjoy the unexpected outcome because although different, I have yet to be disappointed in the results!
This card is a perfect example of unexpected, to my eye it looks rather mysterious. You may notice that only on a rare occasion due I really embellish or pretty my card . It's perfectly logical to me because I prefer to highlight the technique as much as possible. Look at the card and see if it seems rather mysterious to you.
Try to ignore the black surrounding the card. It is only used as contrast because a white card fades into the background of the blog post.
So are you saying "enough already, tell me the technique?"
Well here it is :
from the Dec/2014 Technique Junkie newsletter.
Stamps used: #SD292 Palm Frond
#SS2a Simple Sentiments
