Welcome to the Technique Junkies September Release Blog Hop!
Hopefully you have arrived here from Giovana's blog! If not, and you'd like to start the hop at the beginning at the TJ Blog, please do!
September is a very exciting month as "its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!" around here! I love Christmas, and all the excitement and generous spirit involved!
And lets talk a bit about generous spirit, shall we? Not only are all 21 (yes, twenty-one!) of the new September stamps 15% off through September 8th, there are some amazing blog hop prizes up for grabs this month.
Technique Junkies is giving away 2 (yes, two) $100 Technique Junkies gift certificates as blog hop prizes this month. To enter, all you have to do is to comment on one of the hop blogs. You may comment on ALL the blogs to get multiple entries. Two lucky gift card winners will be chosen from the list of commenters on September 5th. How cool is that?!?
And... we also have a special guest designer joining the blog hop this month! Lydia Fiedler is joining us this month to help kick off this fun release!
So let's get this party started!
Here are a few cards that I've made with these new September stamps:
How sweet is that little cat's face? I love him. This Christmas Kitty was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I added just a bit of coloring with Copic markers. He looks so sweet peeking out of that frame. The beautiful greeting is one of a set of five greetings from the Gifts of Christmas sentiment set is heat embossed in gold. This is a card that is easy to mass produce!
Here's another simple one to mass produce for your holiday cards! I stamped the Santa in Moonlight and Good Night greeting simultaneously with my MISTI on a 4"x 4" piece of charcoal gray cardstock using Versamark ink. I heat embossed in silver, then used a small brush (an inexpensive small makeup eye shadow smudge brush, actually) to lightly brush in white pigment ink into the moon. I added stars with Copic Opaque White and a silicone tipped stylus tool.
This card pairs the beautifully rendered Holly Bird stamp with another of the gorgeous scripty greetings from Gifts of Christmas. This was stamped with Versafine ink on watercolor paper and painted using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
Not quite ready for Christmas? How about a versatile background stamp?
This is a simple friendship card, created by stamping the Star Collage background stamp in a rose colored hybrid ink onto patterned paper. I love the tiny print of the paper peeking through the distressed look of the stamp. I added a stitched circle die cut offset on the card front to add the Being You greeting.
