Vintage Grungy Card - Technique Junkies


Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter here with a grungy card for Technique Junkies that features two stamps from the August Technique Junkies Release. I used a sentiment from the You're Vintage set of four and the Vintage Paris Advertisements Stamp. Don't forget to use my code: TJ10Tracy to save 10% on your Technique Junkies order. 

I created a YouTube Video of my card. You can watch it here:

To create my card, I first sprayed my background panel with Harvest Sunset, Gold, Chestnut Mare and Worn Saddle Shimmering Bliss Sprays. I dried this and then stamped the Paris Advertisement stamp onto this panel with VersaFine Claire Nocturne Ink. I then embossed the sentiment using the same Nocturne Ink and clear embossing powder. I cut the sentiment panel and my background panel out with my Deckle Trimmer. I also deckle trimmed a mat layer for the sentiment (also created with shimmering bliss sprays). I splattered Gold and Copper metallic water color paint over the panel and the sentiment with Finetec Metallic Watercolor Paints. I popped the sentiment up with foam tape and adhered this to the mat layer which I glued to the background panel. I mounted my card onto an A2 black card base.

It Takes a Long Time to Grow an Old Friend

 Hello. Today I have a few cards using a sentiment from the new You're Vintage Stamp Set from Technique Junkies:  This stamp set is part of the awesome August new release:  I also used some previous released stamps. If you shop for any of these stamps don't forget to use my code for 10% off your entire order: TJ10Tracy

You're Vintage: 
To create my first card I ink blended a background panel using three colors of Catherine Pooler Inks: Chiffon, Catching Rays and Pucker Up. To ink blend, I used foamed domed blending tools and Hammermill premium cover paper, 100 lbs. I then stamped the sentiment at the top of the card. For the bottom of my card, I used the previously released Wildflower Silhouettes stamp. I trimmed the panel with a stitched rectangle die and then adhered it to an A2 black card panel.
Growing Wild Stamp:
For my second card, I created my background with Lapis Lazuli and Smoldering Ash Shimmering Bliss Sprays. I stamped the bottom of the panel with the previously released Growing Wild Stamp. I then splattered white ink on the panel.  Next I heat embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder. I had a piece of paper that I sprayed with Shimmering Bliss Spray in the same colors as the background panel that I used as a mat later behind the sentiment. I trimmed everything with my Deckle Trimmer and adhered it to a white card panel.
