Happy February! NewTechnique Junkie Vintage Stamps on Sale!!

Happy February 1! Happy Blog Hop Day for Technique Junkie Stamps - it is a wonderful day!!   Every time the Design Team for Technique Junkie Stamps gets our new stamps, each member wonders what do I do with these stamps?  How can I make these stamps stand out?  So hopefully every member of the Design Team has done just that!  Each member of the Design Team is so talented and uses stamps in a variety of ways.  Every artist brain looks and works at these things differently.  I always find it so interesting how different we all work and yet how interesting every card or project is! Doesn't the Design Team produce such interesting and delightful work?

Don't forget that all of the newly released stamps for February are on sale for 15% off until February 8th. The percentage will come off automatically. 

If you haven't started at the beginning of the Blog Hop, please start there: Design Team Blog .  My blog is second -- right after the Design Team blog. 

And now to my cards for your Eye Candy and viewing pleasure!   These two cards use the same two newly released Technique Junkie stamps or sets: PS012 - "Vintage Travel Cases", and PO32 "Hats Off" .

And my second card also uses a Technique Junkie stamp called "Together" --

Lots of layers, coloring with Copic markers, sponging, and embellishments  -- Ta Da! two cards done!

I have one more card for you with a newly released Technique Junkie Background stamp called "Houndstooth" , and I also used a Technique Junkie stamp called "Vintage Botanicals Collage"

I used Art Anthology Colorations sprays to color the card stock and then  used a variety of ink colors to add contrast when I stamped over the dried ink sprays.   I stamped the flower stamp three times, I used the
Art Anthology gel mediums on the daisies, and sprayed the background with the Art Anthology sprays.  Then I cut out sections, trimmed them and mounted them.  Only the top layer has the Prills in the center of the flowers.  The bottom two flowers are adhered with my ATG tape runner, and the center flower image is popped up underneath the top left and the bottom right corners. The other two corners are adhered with my ATG tape runner adhesive. A few antique looking stick on bling are in the corners.

I hope I have inspired you with these cards today!  Other folks on the Technique Junkie Design Team blog hop  want to inspire you are well.  So here is the entire Blog Hop list.  Have a wonderful time and don't forget to leave some comments for the members of the Design Team in the Blog Hop.  Doing so encourages us all.  Your next stop on the Blog Hop is with Karen McAlpine who is a new designer on the team -- she will do fabulous!

Marvelous cards! Love the way you collaged the suitcases and then ticket cut the sentiment. Also love the layering of the Houndstooth card. Perfect.

Great projects. I know,isn't it fun to see how differently the same stamp looks when used by different designers! Love how you sprayed the paper and then stamped the Houndstooth. Very cool.

You're so right, I do indeed wonder how I can do my best to showcase the stamps. As always you did an amazing job. Love how you cut up the suitcases, and that colourful houndstooth card is awesome. I'm going to have to get that flower stamp.

Great cards! I especially like the one with the two travelers, but I also like the way you tied the flower colors into the background on that card.
