Pat has some great summer images which are all on sale for 15% off through June 8th, so shop while the getting is good.  Don’t forget to check out all the cool stencils, art anthology colorations, and dimensional mediums perfect for those who like to play with ink.

I’d love for you to stop by all the design team’s blogs for great ideas and samples of other new June Release stamps  you can find in the Technique Junkies Store.

My first card uses the technique called, Metallic Pop from the Emboss or Die CD.  I started by spraying Avocado and Siesta Key’s Art Anthology Colorations.  I then embossed with the “Bubble” embossing folder by Tim Holtz/Sizzix and applied “Platinum Metallic Rub” over the raised areas.  The featured sentiment is one of the gorgeous June releases called, “Learn to Surf #SD681” which I embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum powder to match the metallic rub.  I also used the “Wisped Frames” technique on the sentiment, which is also from “Emboss or Die” CD.

My second card features the “Bold Shells #SD681” stamp over the “Distressed Stain Dip” technique from the “Artistic Effects” CD.  I stamped it twice using the Misti with Hero Arts Intense Black ink so it turned out very vibrant.  The sentiment is another June release called, “Beachin’ It SDX074”.

My next card uses a version of the “Doubly Irresistible Tutorial” from the Simple & Easy Inking CD. I changed up the ink and instead of pigment inks and Copics, I used Art Anthology Colorations in Sandcastle and Timeless with black Irresistible Spray.  The focal stamp is the new “Beautiful Conch S667” which I heat embossed with Stampendous Bronze Enamels.  The sentiment is from “By The Sea #SS060 Set of 6″ and heat embossed with gold.

For my final card I began with the Sandcastle and Siesta Keys Art Anthology Colorations using the Stencil Spray Fun in the Sensational Stencils CD. I then applied distress inks in Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, and Vintage Photo and spritzed water to get spatters.  The sentiment is from the “By The Sea Set of 6 #SS060.”

For my card this week, I was inspired by a card design that I came across on Pinterest using die cuts in a chevron pattern.  The die I used is “Sunny Studios” Fishtail Banner Dies, which comes with four (4) different fishtail/chevron patterns.  I will be featuring “how to” do this technique on my next “project of the week” on June 13th, so stay tuned.

For my sentiment, I chose to use the Repeat Impressions stamp, “Happy Birthday 1113-D and Make A Wish 4034-F ” which I stamped in Versafine Black Onyx Ink.
