Oh Wonderful April! Wonderful NEW Stamps! And A New Blog Hop!!

The Blog Hop for the  new releases from Technique Junkie stamps is always a   special day. You can see all of the new Technique Junkies Stamps April releases here -  techniquejunkies.com/april-2017-release/.   And of course every single stamp I have used today is a Technique Junkies Stamp! :)

The April stamp discount will automatically be added at checkout. We can all use a bit of savings, right?

Hope this is clear...please remember there is 15% off of  only Technique Junkie  April Release stamps, no discount off of Distress Oxides, and clearance items, and by using TJ10Judy you will receive 10% off everything else : )

Blog Hops are always so interesting because we all get to see how each designer interpreted the stamps on their own projects.   You should start the Blog Hop at the Design Junkies blog - http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/  .  You should have come to me from the artistic Beth Norman: http://www.sunflowers-dragonflies.ca/

My first card to share with you is this unique Mother's Day card.   Anchors are usually thought of for men's card but this stamp is perfect for many, many Moms out there!  I used the Technique Junkie stamp Mom Anchor - www.techniquejunkies.com/mom-anchor/.  It is stamped with black Versafine ink and covered with black detail embossing powder and heat embossed.   Both the focal image panel and the bottom background were created with the Medallion Fade Stencil - http://techniquejunkies.com/medallion-fade-stencil/.



My second card for you today uses two new releases from Technique Junkie April release stamps. I used Long Stemmed Rose - www.techniquejunkies.com/long-stemmed-rose/ and Happy Mother's Day - www.techniquejunkies.com/happy-mothers-day/. Both were stamped with black Versafine ink, covered with detail black embossing powder, and heat set.  I used Twinkling H2O's to color in the rose.   I tied a small bow and attached it to the rose stem with a glue dot.  I used lots of layers of card stock and background papers.  The end of the verse panel (ending in Day) is popped up with dimensionals and the other end is adhered with adhesive form my ATG gun. Any Mom would be pleased to get this card!


My third card uses a  March release - Big Bunny - http://techniquejunkies.com/big-bunny/ , and  the April Technique Junkies Stamps release - How Blessed I Am - www.techniquejunkies.com/how-blessed-i-am-set-of-8/.  I used my MISTI - http://techniquejunkies.com/misti-most-incredible-stamping-tool-invented/  and dye based markers to color in the bunny.   I made two small slits near the neck of the bunny and pushed ribbon  through the slits and tied a bow.  I stamped the verse on a piece of vellum, heat embossed it, and adhered  it to the card with my Xyron machine.

My last card uses the April Releases  How Blessed I Am - www.techniquejunkies.com/how-blessed-i-am-set-of-8/, and Flowers  and Feathers Collage - http://techniquejunkies.com/flowers-and-feathers-collage/  .

 .  I colored the butterflies, birds, and flowers with Copic markers.   The verse is heat embossed on card stock, and glimmer paper and card stock are used to add layers.  

I hope these cards inspire you and encourage you to  go shopping at the Technique Junkie website -  http://techniquejunkies.com/   for not only the April releases but all of the wonderful products Pat sells. 

And did you know that Technique Junkies now has their own Facebook group wall!  Come and share the fun with all of us. https://www.facebook.com/TechniqueJunkies/.

All fabulous cards, Judy. I really love the anchor card and the way you used the stencil and your bunny is adorable! I love the coloring on the collage stamp too. The red adds a perfect punch.
