May Stamp Release for Technique Junkies

New Month! New Stamps! Technique Junkies releases 15 new stamps EVERY MONTH! Who DOES that?! Wow! I am so blessed to be involved with such a wonderful group. The stamps are of the highest quality, there is a great selection of products, and the service can't be beat. I just returned from a stamp show in Ohio where I got to demo some products and techniques, and I am fresh with lots of new inspiration and ideas. Let's play!


I had so much fun creating projects for this release! Here is a glimpse of the ones I've included here today:


But before we get into those, let me tell you a little bit of "stuff you need to know"...Until the 8th of this month, all the new releases are on sale for 15% off (automatically taken at checkout)! PLUS you can receive an ADDITIONAL 10% off by using my special code "TJ10Ro". That's 25% off!!!! But that's only until the 8th! The 10% is good any time, any month, on anything. 


Also, with every $30 (before taxes) order you will automatically receive the "Make A Wish" stamp FOR FREE! This stamp is not yet available for purchase!

If not, you may want to start at the very beginning (HERE) so you don't miss any of the wonderful inspiration. I will list all the links at the end of this post.

Now onto the fun! Let me share with you the projects I created and a little info about the supplies used.

This card features two stamp sets:
Aren't they a hoot? The background was stamped using Memento Ink (Angel Pink). I stamped part of the background again on white CS using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then trimmed out the words I wanted to use for my sentiment. The housewife was stamped, colored with Tombow markers, trimmed out and attached to the stamped card base. I added the sentiment in a wonky kind of style. Ta-Done!

This beautiful card was created using "Live In Color". I am loving this stamp and can see it being used with a lot of different techniques. For this card, I chose to create an alcohol ink background. I stamped the image with Versamark and used a copper embossing powder. The piece was then trimmed down and I added a die cut frame. The card base was with splattered with a "blo pen", then the stamped piece and frame were attached to finish off the card. You will see this stamp used in a lot of different ways as you go through the blogs today. It's a very versatile stamp!

Who doesn't love an easy masculine card? This one is perfect for Father's Day or, change out the sentiment, and it makes a great birthday or retirement card. I simply stamped the background using "Golf Club Patent". What a fun stamp! I added a little shadow with Tombow Markers and some white gel pen highlights. The sentiment was created with an older stamp called, oddly, "Happy Father's Day". lol 

I love the look of black and white with the kraft colored cardstock. It's masculine, but still fun.

One of my favorite stamps in this release is "Hay Girl". I love the image. I love the sentiment. I love the humor. I paired it with an image from an older set called "Faith Family Farming" (I simply masked off the sentiment on that stamp).

I stamped and colored the barn with Tombow Markers, added some "ground", then stamped the Hay Girl Image with Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the image again on white cardstock and trimmed out just the cow and attached that to the top. Mounted on a red card base, with that bright white cow, the card just pops!

My other favorite from the release is this awesome "Ruffle Your Feathers" stamp. If you love doodled images, just check out that tail! I used Tombow Markers to color in this awesome chicken and adding a little shadow underneath. It was then trimmed down and matted with some silver cardstock.

For the background, I did some embossing with an older stamp called "Chicken Wire 2". That was then matted with silver and both pieces attached to my card base. I have to say this chicken cockle-doodled my doo! (tee hee)

***
I just want to remind you that with every $30 (pretax) order, you will receive a free stamp! Here is the card I made with that.


Great sentiment for birthdays, graduation, or inspiration. The background I used on this card was an older stamp called "Retro Sparkles".

I sure hope you found some ideas and inspiration today. Be sure to check out all the blogs for a whole lot more! Here is the line-up:


See you soon!

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!

Hi Ro: I have tried to send you a comment and also sent you and e-mail to scrappyhappy1201@yahoo.com. Neither would post. E-mail said there was no Yahoo account. What I was trying to post was: My daughter and I was at your last make and take at the Akron stamp show on Saturday. When you tried to get up, you couldn't. I talked to Pat on Sunday and she said that you were in the ER. I was just wondering how you were doing. I pray that you are okay. I also found out that you live in Jackson. I live in Battle Creek. We are neighbors. Anyway, just checking in on you.

Hi, Margie! You are so sweet to check up on me. Not quite sure how I managed it, but I dislocated my artificial knee. After 10 hours in the ER, they were able to get it back where it belonged and it's much better. It was definitely not a fun night! But I sure enjoyed doing the make-n-takes with you and all the wonderful stampers! How funny that we live so close to each other!
