Technique Junkies Blog Hop!

Happy May 1st!  It’s time for another Technique Junkies Blog Hop. For this hop, we are celebrating the new May Release at the Technique Junkies Store.  In addition to cool new stamps, there are new stencils, art anthology colorations, and a variety of new dimensional mediums perfect for those who like to play with ink.  As a special treat, Pat is offering 15% off all May Release Stamps for one week!  WooHoo!

Stop by all the design team’s blogs for great samples of the other new May Release stamps. Being from Southern California, I was excited to see that some of the release is beached themed and focused my cards on that theme.

My first card uses the Background Popup Technique from the Simple & Easy Inking CD.  I started by stamping the Sand Dollars #S617 image on two sheets of Bristol Smooth card stock with Simon Says Stamp Ink in Khaki.  I cut out the sand dollars from one of the sheets and popped them up on the uncut image.  I stamped “Listen to the Sea #SDX053” using Versafine Black Onyx Ink and clear heat embossed. To give that extra touch, I took a black sharpie pen and ran it around all the popped up images to give them a frame.

My second card features another beach themed May Release stamp called, Starfish #S629.  I used the Aged Tiles Technique, also from the Simple & Easy Easy CD.  After inking the stamp with multiple brown distress inks, I cut the panel apart in staggering sizes, inked the edges, and placed them back together on my card base. The sentiment is from, “Things I want to do #S546” and resting on a Our Daily Bread Label Die.  I tied down the image with some twine to add even more of a beach feel.
