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.”
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.

Lindy’s Stamp Gang March 2015 Color Challenge
Today I worked on the May 2015, Lindy’s Stamp Gang Challenge.
I used Flat Fabio Magical Mica in, “Frency’s Pink Pouf”, Flat Fabio Spay in Ocean Breeze Blue, Starburst Sprays in, Silent Night Silver, and Clam Bake Beige, and Magical Mica in Hydrangea Blue. I also used Angel Wings Mauve and Dessert Moon Turquoise Embossing Powder.
I started by spritzing and stenciling my card base with the above colors. I used an embossing folder on the entire base and then framed it with Inca Gold in Blue. I added some ephemera, which I put embossing powder on and colored my flowers using above sprays. The rainbow is from gold ferro and is a stencil from Simon Says Stamp. I spritzed more color on and finished the card off with pearls on a wooden veneer piece colored with Ocean Breeze Blue.

Technique Junkies Journal Page
Hey Junkies! Today I’m sharing a page I made in my art journal using a few gorgeous Technique Junkies Stamps called, Let’s Face It 1 – #P006, Classy Swirls #S505, and Mae West Sentiments #PS004.
I started by stamping the Let’s Face It on book paper with archival ink and colored her in with Silks. To make the background I used a brayer to add Dina Wakely acrylic paint and stamped the Classy Swirls also with archival ink, but this time in Cobalt Blue. I didn’t use the entire stamp, but portions of it while just holding it in my hand. I then added some molding paste through stencils and applied the face on with gel medium. I splattered both black and gold ink as well as edged the page with gold Krylon. To highlight the molding paste I took Viva’s Inka Gold Metallic Rub and applied it direct to paper with my fingers. I love that gold shimmer. To ground my picture I added some Faber Castell Pitt Pen around the image and smoothed it out with my fingers. Because there was gel medium on the page if you work quickly, it moves well and allows that shadow to be developed without harsh lines.
I sure hope you’ve had a chance to visit the new Technique Junkies site as well as the Design Team blog, where there are some great tutorials.
Signing off for now,
