Lucky You - September is Here!

It is that wonderful time of the month -- the first of the month and it a Technique Junkie Blog Hop  for the new September release of the latest Technique Junkie stamps!  AND Pat Huntoon has the September Release of the Technique Junkie Stamps on sale for 15% off.  Place your order, friends! 

You should have come from the blog post of Pam DeChellis:     http://journeyawakensthesoul.blogspot.com/.  The Technique Junkies Design Junkies blog starts off the hop -  http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com.  If you didn't start with either of those blogs, please go back to the beginning -- with the Design Junkies blog!  You do not want to miss out on any of the inspiration of the talented ladies on the Design Team.


This month Halloween stamps stamps are among the featured stamps.  So I thought I would start off my post with the Technique Junkies Halloween stamps I received. I used these Technique Junkie stamps: Be Scary - http://techniquejunkies.com//be-scary/  and Ghost - http://techniquejunkies.com/ghost/.
This was one of those happy things when I had just the right kind of background paper in my stash for this card and the next.  Everything but the saying and the ghost are on the background paper.  As soon as I saw the ghost stamp I thought of this paper. I used black detail embossing powder and heat embossed the image which was stamped with Versafine black ink.  I used white Twinkling H2O's (2 shades) to color in the ghost.  I like how the green paper sort of shows through the white H2O paint.  The verse was stamped with white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder. 

My next card features these two new Technique Junkie stamps - Witchy Moon - http://techniquejunkies.com/witchy-moon/ and Happy Halloween - http://techniquejunkies.com/happy-halloween/.  The background paper is from the same paper stack in my stash and has a spider web pattern.  Both the verse and the witch were stamped with Versafine black ink and then covered and heat embossed with detail black embossing powder. The moon is colored with Twinkling H2O's.  Layers and beads complete the card.,




Do you remember wearing bobby socks as a child and even into your teen years?  I sure do -- although by my junior and senior year in high school that fad had gone out of style.  I am aging myself here, aren't I? Often our bobby socks were white but we also wore colored socks to coordinate with our outfit.  We never wore slacks to school - it was always a dress or a skirt.  I used this newly released Technique Junkie stamp - It Takes Courage - http://techniquejunkies.com/it-takes-courage/ .

I stamped the stamp (it comes with the verse!) with Black Memento ink and colored the image with my Copic markers.  The sky is sponged on for the background.  Ribbon and layers add the needed details to finish the card.




This new Technique Junkie stamp is my absolute favorite of the September releases that I received  from Pat Huntoon.  Having several grandchildren, I just adore this image.  It is called Generations - 
http://techniquejunkies.com/generations/.  Do you see the three different generations?

I also used a portion of a verse from Sentimental Sayings - http://techniquejunkies.com/sentimental-sayings/.

As a scrapbooker as well as making cards -- I have my child and her spouse's hands around feet and hands for pictures in a scrapbook.  Every time i see those  pictures, I remember the sweetness of that particular newborn child.

But this particular stamp has a very special meaning for me and one of my daughters. Several years ago, my granddaughter was sitting in church between her Mommy and me. She reached over and arranged both Mommy's hands and my hands around her hands.  I turned to my hubby and whispered take a picture as I KNEW  that it would be precious and a "one of a kind" photo never to be  taken again.  This is that picture - do you see why I love this new stamp?

Great cards, Judy. How nice to have the right designer paper. What a sweet photo of the hand holding and that you should have that stamp too.
