Hello, house friends!  

It's the last Wednesday of the month (I'm sure you didn't need me to remind you of that), and that brings around the favorite Anything Goes challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  

Anything goes means that you can submit whatever card or project creation you'd like to, and be entered in the month's challenges for a chance to win $25.00 worth of fabulous Repeat Impressions Stamps.  

I love springtime, it's my favorite season...I love the sounds of the birds, and the sleeping flowers waking up after such a long, long winter and finally blooming.  The RI stamp I used on my card is #1702-N "Bird Song".  Isn't it adorable?  
I stippled (with a small paint brush) Distress Oxide Ink "Peacock Feathers" over the bg after stamping and coloring the image with Chameleon ColorTone Pencils and cutting an oval shape out of scrap paper.  I placed it over the image and stippled the ink.  The embossing folder is a basket weave from the We R Memory Keepers next level embossing folders.  The sentiment is RI#1112-E "Just a Note".

My team mates have some incredibly gorgeous ATG projects to show you.  Here are links to each of their blogs.  I hope you'll pay them a vist them.

Hello TJ people, 

Gotta say I am having so much fun with the stamp set "Faith, Hope, Love" from the February 2018 release.  It not only comes as a single set, it also comes bundled with a background stamp too.  Get them all with a 10% full discount by using my discount code at check out TJ10Cheri.  

I started out by sponging a soft background using Distress Oxide Ink on the panel where I would stamp the images.  I used a MISTI and a piece of acrylic packaging to line up the rose branch with the branch the bird sits on.  The images were colored with my Chameleon ColorTone Pencils.  I added a few punched hearts from red card stock and then used Glossy Accents to give them dimension.  Finally, I added some light plattering with watered down Black Soot Distress Ink on an old tooth brush.

There's so much creativity going on using Technique Junkies Stamps as well as our FaceBook Page.  There's also a Technique Junkies YouTube Channel, hosted by our creator, Pat Huntoon where she demonstrates lots of techniques for card makers.  Check them all out. 

We also have a monthly challenge. (This month it's a technique challenge)  In order to win this challenge you must use Technique Junkies Stamps in your creation.  You say you don't have any TJ stamps?  Well....don't forget...I have my 10% discount code which will let you get a full 10% off every and/or any stamps you want in the store.  

I hope you can grab yourself some crafting time today...and one week from today we're busting out the MAY 2018 RELEASE!  You are going to be knocked sideways when you see these new stamps!!!
