I am thrilled to announce that Technique Junkies is launching their new website today!  If you are not familiar with Technique Junkies Stamps, they are individually handmade, high-quality, cling, red rubber stamps.  Here’s a link to how Technique Junkies Stamps are made.

To celebrate the new website and the Technique Junkies April stamp release, I’m also excited to announce that I will be part of the new Technique Junkies Design Team, YEAH!!!!!  I couldn’t be more thrilled.

I’ve used the April Release, “Nesting Bird – #MC001” and “Be Silly – #SDX001″ for my first card.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and used the “Head over Heels” 6 x 6 paper pack by Lily Bee Design.  The base, flag and circle dies are from My Favorite Things.

My second card features “Lovers Silhouette -#SD636”.   I heat embossed clear powder over black Versafine ink.  I then chose four different Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica colors and watercolored them in an ombre pattern.  I die cut Ellen Hutson’s Brushstroke Love Die and inlayed it into the embossed image.  The frame is a My Favorite Things Die and the paper pack is Fancy Pants “Love” collection.

My third April release card features some super cool flowers called, “Darling Blossoms – #S615.”  I used Gelatos in a direct to paper method, then added highlights with Pitt Brush Pens in corresponding colors and white.  The sentiment is from the versatile sentiment set called, “Things I Want To Do #S546.” I then finished it off with a spritz of homemade pearlized spray.

I sure hope you enjoy the hop and get a chance to stop by the new Technique Junkies website to check out all the fun new stamps.  As a special treat all Technique Junkies stamps will be 15% off from April 1-8. Happy Hopping!

For my card, I’ve gone patriotic.  I used the Repeat Impressions stamp, “God Bless Flag 3705- J .”   I cut out a series of both Lawn Fawn and My Favorite Things dies to layer the kraft, black and red card stock.  I love to use clean and simple designs for patriotic cards and this bold RI stamp really works well with that design.

Come join us at The House That Stamps Built, you may be our next winner!  Oh, and don’t forget to get your discount code from my blogs sidebar when you shop at Repeat Impressions Stamps.
