Helloooo Junkies, it's time for another new release from Technique Junkies Stamps and this one is really exciting on so many levels.  

If you've arrived from the super talented Lanette Erickson's blog  (didn't you LOVE her creations?) you're in the right place and you may have noticed there that the incredibly talented Lydia Fiedler is joining us in this hop as a guest designer.  To start the hop, head to the Technique Junkies Blog and see all the goodness.  

There are 21 new stamps in the Technique Junkies line for this month (September)!
We are so thrilled with the new release we decided to do something extra special!

We will be choosing TWO lucky people who comment on this month's release hop - those two people will each win a $100 Technique Junkies gift certificate!!! 
The more you comment the more chances you have to win, so don't miss a single stop along the hop! Gift Certificate winners will be announced on September 5th.
Only one comment entry per blog please.

All of the September 2017 New Release stamps are 15% off through September 8th! We can all use a little bargain, right?  No codes needed, just put them in
your shopping cart and the discount will be applied at checkout.

For this card I used "Greatest Oak" and "Autumn Set of 6" (I colord the leaves with MozArt brush markers) the bg was created with VersaMark Ink sponged through A Colorful Life "Square Fade" stencil.  

Stamps used in this card were "Autumn Set of 6".  The leaves were again colored with MozArt brush pens, stamped on a single layer, trimmed on the edge and layered against a colored cs panel.  

The stamp used on this card is "We're Flexible" which was heat embossed with white ep.  The background for this card was created with alcohol inks on mineral paper. 

The stamps used on this card are "Draped Ornaments"  and "Gifts of Christmas set of 5".  .  The ornaments were stamped on light blue colored cs and colored with Copic Markers.  Outlined with a clear gel pen.  The sentiment was heat embossed with white ep.  

I hope you found some inspiration here.  Now, head on over to see what my friend and incredibly talented Kathy Stacy has created for you.  She will blow your creative mind.

Hello House Fans!  

Whenever there is a 5th Wednesday in the month, Wendy adds a sketch challenge to our monthly list of challenges.  These are not my favorites, as I struggle so much with sketches...but once I get into the challenge of it, I find out I enjoy the process.  So, being that this is the 5th Wednesday (and last) for August 2017 there's a sketch challenge for you over at The House That Stamps Built

The Repeat Impression Stamps I used for this card are a collection of stamps from RI#Flower Power Separates.  I colored them all with Copic Markers and used embossing folders and dies to build the sketch and frame the focal flowers. (there are is stacked on top of the other).  

Here's the sketch challenge.

This is also the last challenge for you to play in this whole month of challenge.  You've had the whole month to add cards in each week of challenges for a big opportunity to win a whole bunch of RI Stamps.  If you haven't been playing in each challenge and have wanted to, you have a whole week to get entered into any or all from the first challenge of the month until now.  

Check out THE HOUSE for all the details.

And please visit these talented ladies and see what fabulous creations they have to show you using the sketch challenge.  

Deonna - Donna - Heather - Joy - Laurie - Patti J - Shirley 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi there Junkies!!! 

So much "purty" going on with this awesome stamp, "Calendula", it's fun to color in any color medium you choose.  

My choice of medium was my MozArt Brush Pens.  These pens are much like the Zig brush markers but a whole lot cheaper.  I've had them and been using them for a while now and I really enjoy coloring with them and the colors are very vibrant.  

After coloring the Calendula, I added some detail with both white and black pens. The background color was created using Copic Markers.  

I hope you found some inspiration here today.

If you'd like to purchase this stamp or any other Technique Junkies Stamps (excluding stamps from the August Release) and would like a 10% discount on your entire stamp purchase, please use my discount code at check out and have fun creating!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!
