Technique Junkies Blog Hop CD11 and Rosh Hashana

Hi Bloggers!
The TJ Design Team is here to roll out the Technique Junkies CD-11, 
a compilation CD of all of the tutorials from the October 2012 
through August 2013 issues.  
We are so excited to have you join us.

You should have arrived here from Shelly‘s blog. 
She always has such wonderful artwork. 
 To start at the beginning go to the Design Team website by clicking here

The CD includes 10 bonus techniques that are only found on the CD. 
All of the tutorials are in PDF format, so they print perfectly on regular paper,
 for both PCs and Macs. With the bonus tutorials, there are 100 tutorials on this CD!
It is available for order TODAY by clicking here:
The CD will be shipped in less than 2 weeks!
New on this CD:
This CD contains a pictorial index that you can print out -- each of the 100 tutorials on the CD are represented with pictures in the index. 
It has been designed to make it easier than ever to find a tutorial on the CD:

OK, so far all the information,
but I guess you came to see some inspiration.
My project uses the "Lumiere Spread" technique
and because today is also the Jewish New Year
(Rosh Hashana) I have some Jewish cards for you.
The luniere paint makes wonderful backgrounds,
but what if you don't have this paint?
You can also use mica magic or Club Scrap's
metallic reinkers. I think there is much to experiment.
This is what I have used:
and these bottles worked perfectly.
The papers that you make are perfect for backgrounds
,embossing and stamping on.

Now this beehive card is my Jewish new Year card
to wish all my Jewish friends a very sweet
and creative New Year.

I saw this kind of card in one of my magazines and 
made a template.Here it is in case you like the idea too!
I cut it out of cardstock and in three segments.
On top i stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp,
the middle part is embossed Lumiere Spread technique
and the bottomis a stencil by Michael Strong.

When all the pieces are finished you adhere them to the card.
On the card you see some bees, they belong to the 
Hannah's Busy Bee stampset by Michael Strong.
As you can see the card is folded on the bottom
so it can stand alone. A strip is in
the middle with the New Year's wish.
The text is printed with the computer.
At the end of the strip is a horizontal
piece of paper so the strip doesn't slip out.
Another sample card with 
the image stamped onto the lumiere spread background.
Archivalblack is a great inkpad
to use for this kind of stamping.

The star and the sentiment are from a stampset
by Stampin'Up! called  Jewish Celebrations.

Well stampers, that was it from me for today.
I hope you are inspired to grab the CD and if not,

there is more to see on your
 next stop on Pat’s blog.
Go and see what wonderful project she has in store for you.
If you get lost, you can find all participants at the 

Thanks for hopping along with us today!
Have a creative day and 
Shana Tova!
 ( Happy New Year)

Wow, Hetty! I'm in love with your beehive - three different ways of adding the honeycombs are just awesome! Your Jewish-inspired card is stunning - love the shimmer that I can see in the pictures! :-)
