Technique Junkies-Life is a Song

Happy Thursday Junkies

Today I have another card using TWO New Release stamps from Technique Junkies. These stamps were just released yesterday.  They are HOT off the press and currently on sale.  All New Release stamps are on sale- 15% off until July 8th.

The stamps used in creating this card are Treble Clef and a sentiment stamp called Life is a Song.

I used my Tim Holtz Distress Stains to create the color in the bottom left corner of the card.  First I wet the watercolor paper down and then used a paint brush to dab the color on and let it pool. I moved it around until I had the color in the areas I wanted it and then I left it alone and let it dry before applying the next color.  I tried making this card a couple of times before I got the look I wanted.  It seemed that I had more luck letting the ink dry on its own and not using my heat tool.

Once the card was dry I stamped TREBLE Clef on the card at an angle using a Versamark Ink Pad and gold embossing powder. I heated it with my heat tool just until the powder melted.

I stamped my sentiment called LIFE IS A SONG on a piece of white card stock (embossing it in gold also).  and applied it to the card.

I matted the card with white cardstock and then put it on a piece of coordinating patterned paper.

I think this card turned out so pretty and feminine. I hope it inspires you to create!

Have a wonderful day!



  1. Stunning! Love the simplicity of your design, Jerri. The distress stains are just beautiful, and pairing gold embossing powder with a distressed style is beautiful. Great job!

  2. How very pretty. Love the gold embossing.
