A Mid Month Blog Hop for NEW Stamps!! What Is NEW???

Usually the Technique Junkies Stamps NEW stamps blog hops are held on the first of the month, BUT today is a special day and a special blog hop!  We have a new stamp designer for Technique Junkies Stamps!!! WOO HOO! And we all hope you  all really like these 10 NEW stamps!  All 10 of these new stamps are drawn by Rita Barakat and they can be found here: techniquejunkies.com/special-release-rita-barakat-designs/.


The Technique Junkies Design Team is joining the Design Team for Barakat Designs with this blog hop so you may see some different designers on the hop today.  The hop begins here: https://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com/2018/05/technique-junkies-new-illustrator-hop.html .


Today we are intermingling the two design teams for one hop. Please be sure to follow along! There is going to be a prize!


You should have arrived at my blog from the inspiring blog of Yolie Burke - http://www.justyolie.com/.

I have two cards for your viewing pleasure and of course all stamps are Technique Junkies Stamps! I have also used Art Nuvo Embellishment Mousse - http://techniquejunkies.com/products-and-accessories/nuvo-mousse/  , and stencils from A Colorful Life -
http://techniquejunkies.com/a-colorful-life-stencils/ .


This first card uses the Rita Barakat Technique Junkies stamp called Ballerina - techniquejunkies.com/ballerina/ -and the  Technique Junkies stamp called Dance - techniquejunkies.com/dance-with-your-heart/.  She is colored with  Copic markers.  The verse is heat embossed with Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder.  The stencil is from A Colorful Life stencils with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in two different colors.  I sponged some embellishment mousse around the edge of the verse.


This second card uses Rita Barakat Technique Junkies Stamp Floral Border - techniquejunkies.com/floral-border/ - and the verse is Technique Junkies Stamps Different Flowers - http://techniquejunkies.com/different-flowers/  .  I used a lovely stencil from A Colorful Life Stencils with Nuvo embellishment Mousse repeating the same flower colors that were painted with Twinkling H2Os.  The flowers are on a separate piece of card stock than the stenciled card stock. I sort of fussy cut around the upper border of the flowers.  However, the reason it looks like it is all one piece of card stock is that i chose to paint the same pale blue shade of Twinkling H2Os behind the flowers and behind the little dots.  The verse was heated embossed with clear embossing powder on vellum.
