Technique Junkies April Blog Hop!!

In the Spring we begin to see growth and blooming. That is exactly what we are doing over at Technique Junkies! Growing and Blooming.  We are excited to welcome Jeanne Streiff of the InkyPaws blog as our new Design Team and Social Media Manager here at Technique Junkies.  Welcome Jeanne!!

We’ve also opened up a new Facebook group, which you can immediately join for inspiration and community around our love of technique and stamping.

Now onto the Technique Junkies  April Blog Hop!  The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team  will provide an amazing selection of inspiration for your crafty pleasure.

Pat is again offering 15% off all April Release Stamps for one week!  In addition, you can use a a special design team discount code of TJ10Kathy, to get 10% off anything else (with the exception of the April Release Stamps, the Oxide Inks, or the Clearance Items).

In the spirit of spring, I went to the Subscriber Pages for Technique Junkies and chose techniques from the April/May 2013 section. My first card features “Life is Tough #SD711”.  Isn’t she gorgeous?  I began by making the background which uses the “Snippets Technique” combined with the new Jane Davenport Washi Tape.  A match made in heaven. I stamped her on white card stock using my MISTI tool and versafine black onyx ink, then embossed and fussy cut her out then placing her on a die cut panel.  I finished off with bling and called it fabulous DAHHHHling.

My second card features the April release stamp, “Butterfly Dreams #SD775”.  This card began with the “Design Paper Starburst” tutorial using Basic Grey’s Fresh Cut paper.  I stamped Butterfly Dreams with versamark and clear heat embossed.  Once that set, I distressed over the image to create a soft spring card.

My final card features “Honor and Love #SD797”, which I stamped over “Faux Paint Swatch” technique using Hero Arts Shadow Inks in Soft Granite and Mint Julip and Hero Arts Hybrid in Apple Green. My background is embossed with We R’ Memory Keepers geometric folder.

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.

If you are arriving from Cheri’s Blog, you in the right place!  Great Cards Cheri!
