Technique Junkies October Release

Hello friends! Happy Sunday, October has arrived and that means a new Technique Junkies Release!!  October Release is full of amazing stamps, if you have arrived here from Vicki's blog, you are in the right place. So for this special hop, I worked with 2 sets: Give Thanks and Let It Snow.

In Everything Give Thanks
  • Start making a card base from White cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from black cardstock 5.25" x 4".
  • Cut a strip of patterned paper 1.75" x 5.25" and die-cut a scallop border, adhere to black panel and add straight and zig-zag stitches. Adhere panel to card base.
  • Stamp "Give Thanks" image on a piece of watercolor paper in Versamark Watermark ink, then add Gold Embossing powder and color it with markers (here I used Spectrum Aqua Markers). Die-cut image and adhere it to card.
  • Embellish card with twine and dew drops.

Let it Snow

I had a lot of fun making this card and honestly loved the way it turned out. Sometimes you just have to sit down and enjoy coloring.
  • Stamp image on a piece of white cardstcok in Memento London Fog, use your MISTI and keep it in there for later impression.
  • Color images with markers, then enhance the shadow parts with pencils(here I used Spectrum Noir)
  • After that, apply a good amount of Crystal Lacquer and sprinkle super fine glitter and set aside to dry (at least 2 hours, better if overnight)
  • Die-cut image and also die-cut a layer of snow acetate and adhere them together. (TIP: Add adhesive only on the bottom part, that will be covered)
  • Make a card base from Kraft cardstock, 5.75" 5.5", dry emboss a piece of Coastal Cardstock and adhere them to card base.
  • Adhere image to card base, add snow gold snowflakes, add adhesive to them to hold the top part of the snow acetate.
