As those who follow me know, this is my FAVORITE time of the year! I was so excited to get this batch of Technique Junkies stamps for our Technique Junkies Blog Hop. The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team will be showcasing the September release so please make sure to stop by and visit each of us.
Pat is again offering 15% off all September Release Stamps for one week beginning today! As you know, Technique Junkies is not just stamps but lots of other products including stencils, art anthology colorations, Gelli Plating materials, and a variety of fun dimensional mediums perfect for those who like to play with ink.
My first card features one of my favorites this released called, “Birches #S686” . The background was created using “Layered Goosebumps” featured on the Artistic Effects CD. The color was added with Distress inks in Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, and Vintage Photo and the focal image is new release, “Pumpkin Guy #SD749” colored with Distress Markers in Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo, and Ground Espresso. The sentiment is new release, “Happy Halloween #SDX080”. I’m very happy with the texture created by this technique.
My second card features “Witchy Moon #SD761” using the “Dye WhitewashTechnique” with MicaMagic Antique Gold Reinker for the moon and extra splatters. The sentiment was white heat embossed using “Happy Halloween #SDX080”. I finished off the edges with a Kylon Gold Pen and added a few flying bats.
My next card features “Boo #SD726” stamped with the Misti tool using “Masked Spellbinders” technique from the “Emboss & Die CD” The ink color is Staz-on in “Cactus Green” and perfect Halloween green. The background began with “Brick Wall Background #S646” also stamped in Staz-on but with Cloudy Sky color. I added additional depth with a C1 Copic Marker toward the bottom of each brick and used a color duster to bring in color over the mask. You can’t really see it here, but I finished off with Wink of Stella to give the “boo” style.
My final card features “Halloween House #S669” embossed with both Frayed Burlap and Black Soot Distress powders. I stamped “Witchy Moon” on Tim Holtz tissue paper and collaged it on my background. My sentiment, “Be Scary SDX086” was stamped on Distress Stained book paper and torn. I thought it would be a cute party invitation.
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.

The Crafty Nurse here with more inspiration using the April Technique Junkies Release. If you haven’t stopped by and gotten a peek at all the new releases, I would do so soon as tomorrow is the last day of the 15% discount on the April Release.
For my card I used “Crabby Set of 3 #PS008” over the Goosebumps Double Stencil technique on the Artistic Effects CD. The sprays are Art Anthology “Waimea Bay” and “Warm” over a Simon Says Stamp wave stencil.
This is a great stamp for so many techniques and with the added sentiments, can be a fun and quirky card. Hope you’ll stop by Technique Junkies to pick up some really great supplies!
Enjoy the inspiration using the April release. Happy Stamping!
