August Stamp Release -- How Fun!

Today is August 1 -- the time for new and fun Technique Junkie Stamps!  There are some really great stamps this month!  Don't we always say that?  But this month Pat Huntoon has included a great set of verse stamps for a variety of occasions in the August release.  All of the stamps or cards in this post are all from Technique Junkies! 

The start of the blog hop is right here:  Design Team Blog: http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/2016/08/august-new-releases-with-15-discount.html.  The next stop is    Tonya Davidson: http://stampintonya.blogspot.com. Tonya will have something wonderful for you to see, I am sure!

This first card reminds me of my oldest granddaughters (in one family) -- getting ready to blow the dandelion puff and make a bunch of wishes!   It is called Keep Believing -  http://techniquejunkies.com/keep-believing/ .  I colored in the image with Copic markers, and layered the focal image on this lovely designer paper from my stash.  In fact I chose the colors for her dress from this paper!  The sky is sponged with blue ink.

My next card features one of the new verse stamps from the set called Grand Greetingshttp://techniquejunkies.com/grand-greetings-set-of-5/  .  There are five different greetings in all.  I used a piece of designer paper with these lovely roses. The paper is in black and gray tones and the color of the flowers is sponged in.


This next card use two Technique Junkie stamps - one new and one from a prior release.  The Zebra ATC  -- http://techniquejunkies.com/zebra-atc/was so easy to heat emboss with black embossing powder. The Happy birthday verse is also from Grand Greetingshttp://techniquejunkies.com/grand-greetings-set-of-5/ .  It makes a great saying fro a wonderful birthday card.  I layered it on this masculine designer paper and added some pearls.

This card features a very western stamp -- I can just see these ladies playing away at a square dance, can't you?  I colored in the scene with my Copic markers.  I used several layers to add dimension and visual interest. A strip of lace adds to the old fashioned feel of this card.    The verse at the bottom is  heat embossed on vellum and adhered with adhesive from my Xyron machine.
The ladies  are one stamp called Three Amigas http://techniquejunkies.com/three-amigas/              .  And the verse is called Courage -  http://techniquejunkies.com/courage/ .

And now you have  seen my four samples from the Technique Junkie August stamp release.  Quite the variety isn't it?  

Here is the entire blog hop list.  If you get lost you can come back here to see where to go next.

You sure do have a gift for creating totally different styles! ie. you're exceedingly talented! Love these, especially the little girl as I have a picture of my little JOY (grandchild) in the exact same pose! Amazing...lol!

Beth Norman said...

Oh, Judy, you outdid yourself. The roses on your card are so dreamy. I love how you used, once again, vellum for your sentiment. You must have a stock pile of vellum--LOL.
