The Technique Junkies Designers are showcasing all these new stamps and you can find a link to each of their blogs at the Technique Junkies Blog.

Here are some cards I made with the new stamps.

This card features "Champagne Toast"  and "Raise Your Glass".  Simple gold embossing on a cranberry  colored card stock.  A frame was made out of brushed gold card stock and "bubbles" were made using Nuvo Glitter Pen in Gold.  What a cool invitation to a New Year's Eve party this combo of stamps makes.  

This card features "Delicate Snowflakes" and "Winter Wonderland Sayings Set of 3" .  Sponged Oxide Inks on a white card stock panel, over white heat embossed snowflakes creating a resist background.  Die cut area in center of panel.  Sentiment was stamped in white pigment ink and heat embossed with white ep on black card stock.  Using the same die the sentiment was inserted into the cut out area.  A scrap piece was stamped with Versamark ink and sprinkled with a glitter ep.  Then using two of the oval dies, a frame was cut and mounted around the sentiment area.  Finally, using a white gel pen, I added some "snow".  

This card features "Scribble Circles", "Fir Forest" and again the sentiment comes from the "Winter Wonderland Sayings Set of 3".  The background was stamped with Delicata Gold ink.  Once dry, the firs trees were stamped with blending of greens and blues Distress Oxide Inks over the background.  The sentiment was stamped on a piece of black card stock and heat embossed with glitter ep.  The sentiment is raised off the base using dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!  Take some time before the 8th of November to treat yourself to some of these fabulous new stamps, and don't forget to use my personal discount code with your purchase of everything in your cart.  It means an additional 10% off - even on the new November stamps and the Christmas Stamps.

Hey there house friends,

There's a 5th Wednesday in this month so that means a sketch challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  A sketch challenge only happens in the months with a 5th Wednesday, so if you're partial to sketch challenges, you'll love to join in on this one.

My card uses RI Stamps #5127-K "Maple Leaf Sil " and #2512-E "Just a Note".  The brick background piece was made with an embossing folder and I dragged a white pigment ink over the top to get the results of the "brick" look and to highlight it.  

The focal panel is the result of using Alcohol Lift Ink on Yupo paper and alcohol inks.  I love playing with this ink.  This panel is actually the "lift" from the card I posted a few weeks ago HERE.  The sentiment was stamped with white pigment ink and heat embossed with white ep on a piece of black scrap card stock.  

Here's the sketch we all are challenged with this week. Come on over to The House and play along.  The details on how to play and what you could win can be found there.  

More incredible creations using this sketch can be found on my team mates' blogs.  Check them out.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a fabulous week!

Hello Junkies!  

We're half-way to the end of our 30 days of Christmas celebration!  I hope you've taken advantage of the big 20% discount on all the Christmas stamps in the Technique Junkies Stamps Store. If you add my personal discount TJ10Cheri to your order, you'll receive another 10% off your selection of, not only Christmas stamps, but any other stamps you might like to add to your cart.  

The products I used for this card are "Angel of Ascension", a sentiment from "Gifts of Christmas set of 5" , Shimmering Bliss "Iridescent" and Nuvo Glitter Marker in Silver.  

I used Prismacolor pencils to color the angel on light blue card stock.  The sentiment was stamped in Archival "Watering Can" gray and a light coat of Shimmer Bliss was sprayed over the layer.  I then added some dots of the silver Glitter Marker for "stars" and a star die cut, cut from glitter paper. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have fun shopping and don't forget the discounts.
