JULY 2017 ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE AT THE HOUSE THAT STAMPS BUILT

Hello House friends....

We've got another anything goes challenge for you at The House That Stamps Built, so wind up your creativity and come on over and play along.



For this card I used RI#10506-J "Wavy Circle Frame" which I stamped 3 times in a brown dye ink.  I then built a floral arrangement around the two back ones with RI#10207-E "Flower Cluster Solid" and RI#10204-D "Leaf Cluster Solid".  The sentiment is from the RI #9800 "Happy Set".  I added some white NUVO Crystal Drops to the centers of the flowers and amazingly, while they dried, they absorbed the color of the Distress Oxide Inks I had stamped the flowers with.  

I hope you found some inspiration and will come over and play along with us at THE HOUSE.  The details of how to play along and what you can win can be found there.  

For even more incredible creations for the Anything Goes Challenge take a look at what these awesome ladies have created.

FOREVER FRIENDS

Hello Junkies!  

There were so many fabulous stamps in the July Release and playing with them has been one of my guilty pleasures.  

For today's post I wanted to show you a technique called "Watered Dylusions Tutorial" from the Bodacious Background Stamps CD .  This technique plays with Dylusion sprays and I chose "Everything Dandelion" for the background stamp.  I did a little switch and added another over stamping of the bg stamp with white pigment ink and heat embossed it with white ep.  I also added some clear Nuvo Crystal Drops for additional texture and dimension.  The sentiment is from the "Sentimental Sayings" set.




I hope you found some inspiration here today and you don't want to miss the August Release one week from today, August 1.  I promise you will love each and every stamp.  

If you'd like to purchase some Technique Junkies Stamps and would like a little discount in your order, please use my discount code TJ10CHERI...just add it in the coupon area before checking out.  (July Release Stamps are excluded)


Okay, that's it for me this time.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week and get some crafting time.

JULY 2017 INSPIRATION CHALLENGE AT THE HOUSE THAT STAMPS BUILT

Helloooo House friends!!!!  

It's inspiration challenge time at The House That Stamps Built, let's get playing....

My card uses RI#4111-F "Starfish (sm)", 2410-I "Conch Shell", 2418-E "Scallop Shell".  The sentiment is RI#2512-E "Just a Note" and I also used RI#2711-I "Cattails" for a bg element.  After sponging and masking with Distress Inks, I used a crackle stencil to add the depth of texture to the sky and the sand.  My white gel pen was used to add the "waves" on the beach and some highlights to the shells.  




Here's the inspiration.  Head on over to THE HOUSE for all the details on how to enter and what you could win.

JOY SHARED

Hey there, Junkies!!! 

Just a quick post with a new card I made using one of the new stamps from the Technique Junkies July 2017 release.  



The face on this lady just explodes with happiness and I just had to give her some love.  The stamp is called "Joy and Laughter" and I colored it with my Chameleon Colortone pencils.  After coloring the image, I drew a border around the frame with the purple color of my Nuvo Northern Lights Glitter Markers.  The background was created with a stencil from my stash and sponging white pigment ink through it.  I paired the image with one of the sentiments from "Sentimental Sayings" that I heat embossed with white ep.  

I hope I've offered you some inspiration.
