It’s the first of the month and you know what that means, right? It’s time for a Technique Junkies Blog Hop featuring the new May release! The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team will provide an amazing selection of inspiration for your enjoyment so make sure you stop by and check them out.
Pat is again offering 15% off all May Release Stamps for one week! In addition to new stamps, Technique Junkies has great art supplies like Gelli Plates, stencils, dimensional paints, sprays, and so much more.
This month, I am offering a Technique Junkies Stamp to a random commenter on this post. Please make sure you tell me which is your favorite card this month.
For the background of my first card I used the “Metallic Bands” technique from the Technique Junkies October 2006 newsletter with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and Silver Hero Arts ink. The focal image is “London ATC #SD721” which I stamped in archival ink and used the “Dipped Stain” Technique from “Artistic Effects CD”. The Mustache and sentiment are also new for May called, “London Calling Set of 9 SS056”.
When I received this next stamp set for this May release I was thrilled. This set is a smaller version of several of the Palettini ladies as well as some great new sentiments called, “Beautiful Faces PS016”. My favorite has always been this African girl – I just love her head piece. I knew I wanted some bright colors so I brought out bright washi tape using the “Washi Paper Piecing Technique” from the August 2006 Newsletter.
My next card features the sentiment “Behave Yourself SDX072”. The background is a super fun technique called “Textured Pearls” from the December 2007 Technique Junkies Newsletter. I then ran it through using a We R Memory Keepers folder and cut it out using a Simon Says Stamp stitched frame die.
My final project uses the gorgeous sentiment “Life Full of Love SD682”. The background Blueprint Sketch and Hickory Smoke Distress ink using the Dip Stain technique from Artistic Effects CD. I sprayed the flowers with Art Anthology Colorations in “Raiders”.
Now, that I’ve shown you what I have to offer, I don’t want you to miss any of the other design teams creativity so I encourage you to start hopping at the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog.
