Hey there, Junkies....what an exciting hop we have for you this month.  Not only do we have new stamps to show off, we are welcoming 3 new designers to the design team; Giovana Smith, Vicki G and Chris Dayton.  Welcome ladies, we're thrilled you're part of our team. 

If you came here from the the incredibly talented Lanette Erickson's blog you're in the right place.  Didn't you love her work?  If you didn't get here through Lanette's blog, you may want to go to the beginning of the hop so you don't miss all the goodness.  

And...if you like the stamps you see in this release, head on over to the Technique Junkies store and pick them all up.  Pat is offering a generous 15% off all the May Release Stamps -  but only until May 8.   BUT WAIT....THERE'S can also grab yourself a set of the Chameleon Color Tones Pencils with the same 15% discount (expires May 8).  These are so much fun to color with and this is a fabulous discount. 

So, here we go....

Here are some cards I created with some of the new stamps.

Aren't these bicycles adorable?  They are from the "Bicycles Set of 4" set.  I colored them with Prismacolor Pencils (I didn't have my Chameleon Color Tones yet) and built the "scene" with Copic Markers.  Also used is the sentiment, "Beautiful Ride".  

Isn't this an amazing stamp?  It's called  "Last Breath" .  I stamped it on watercolor paper using Distress Inks then used a aqua pen to pull the ink from the stamping.  I wanted a vintage/distressed look. I used more Distress Inks on the aqua brush to color the flag after first drying the background layer.  

This stamp, "Big Dreams" is sure to be a big seller...don't you absolutely LOVE that face?  I colored her with Copic Markers and sponged the bg with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  

My last card uses "It's a Guy Thing" and a portion of (the sentiment) the "Hats Off to Dad" stamp.  I stamped the image in Candied Apple Distress Ink, added some thin black lines on the outside of reach wide red stripe with my Copic liner pens to accent them more.  I then paper pieced the tie with some older Authentique paper I had.  The "Thanks" is from my old lable maker.  

Thank you for taking the time to visit today and don't forget about the 15% discount on all the new May stamps and the Chameleon Color Tones pencils...good until May 8th.  (get them before they're gone!) There's no code to enter...the discount is automatic at check out.

IF you'd like even more shopping discount can purchase all other TJ stamps and receive a 10% discount on your entire order (other than the new May stamps) by entering my code TJ10Cheri in the "discount code" area at check out.

Oh Cheri - you've really knocked it out of the park. I adore each and every card you've made. The flag card is almost haunting with the tattered feel that it evokes. The red/white and blue theme of the fathers day card is also perfect and The coloring on your sweet dream girl is just sublime. You go girl. It's so great to have you on the TJ Team. Happy Hopping!!

Wowza, your work is beautiful. The bicycle scene is very nice. Love how you embossed it afterwards. The flag is very unique. Love the distressing. Your other cards are beautiful as well.

This is a great set of cards, Cheri. Each one showcases something from the new release so well. I especially like the bicycle card but they're all lovely.
