August is New! Stamps Are New! Sprays are new! Oh WOW!!

As usual, there is a blog hop today to celebrate the new release of Technique Junkies' newest stamps. And oh, my, are they beautiful! In addition, Pat Huntoon has outdone herself! We are introducing the most shimmery sprays I have ever seen. They are called Shimmering Bliss. There is so much shimmer in these you have to see it to believe it. Unfortunately, the shimmer does not show up in these pictures. Both of my cards for this blog hop used these sprays. Of course, all of the stamps on this post used Technique Junkies stamps.

As is usual, there is a 15% off automatic reduction in price for all of the Technique Junkies August-release stamps that runs through August 8th. Here is the direct link.

You should start the blog hop here

We also have a brand new EXCLUSIVE Technique Junkies product! Introducing Shimmering Bliss25 shades of shimmering dye-based ink sprays that are perfect for stencils, techniques, and any time you want to add shimmer to your projects. There are 20 beautiful colors and 5 "topper colors" that are a clear spray loaded with sparkly mica to either use on top of other colors or alone. If you love sparkle, you will want to try Shimmering Bliss! Believe me, these are gorgeously shimmery.

My first card uses Enjoy the Ride and Bubbles. I sprayed the paper first with Shimmering Bliss sprays, for both the background and the focal image on top. I used shades of blue and green sprays. Isn't it lovely?

The background stamp for this second card is Key Script. The next two stamps are August releases, and they are African Beauty and Light Remains. The color behind the verse is done with a light blue Shimmering Bliss spray and the lady is stamped with black Memento ink, and her skin is colored with two to three shades of brown Copic markers. Her dress and her hat are paper-pieced and a few highlights are done with a gold marker and a dye- based hot pink marker. The necklace and earrings are done with a gold marker.

Your next stop on the blog hop is with Beth Norman.
