Hey there, Junkies....It's the first of the month and once again time for an exciting new stamp release blog hop from Technique Junkies!!!!  

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 June Release Stamps -  but only until June 8.   Here's the entire June Release.  

So, here we go....

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

If you have a golfer in your life, and so many of us do...."Let's Play A Round" stamp set is a must have for your collection.  There are 5 stamps in the whole collection. (Don't you love that title and the play on made me laugh).  To create this card, I first started on the background by sponging Distress Inks on one of the fabulous "A Colorful Life Stencils" called "Square Perspective".   I then trimmed down the layer and matted it onto black cs.  Using my MISITI, I stamped the golfer with VersaFine Black Ink several times.  I wanted to get a great coverage.  I then fussy cut him out.  The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and white heat embossed on a black panel of cs.  I used dimensional tape on the back of the sentiment to place it on the card panel and for additional fun, I added a wobble to the back of the golfer.  He really swings! 

Two fabulous new stamps are used on this shaker card.  The backgrounds were done using "Sudsy Stuff".  The front layer was first stamped with VersaMark and then heat embossed with clear ep.  It gives such a lovely texture and beautiful sudsy look.  It was used again behind the seahorses stamped with white pigment ink.  The seahorses and sentiment come from "Seahorses Set of 4".  They were stamped with Memento "Potter's Clay" ink.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto acrylic with white ep.  The acrylic is created for heat embossing.  

My final card uses "Mermaid on Rock" and "Wild Sea Air".  This card was created by first stamping the image on a white cs panel.  I then cut her out as a mask and masked her.  I also made some masks with post it notes and masked off a horizon and some rocks.  I used Distress Inks to sponge in the scene. The mermaid was colored with Copic Markers and the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white ep.

What stunning cards. The mermaid at night is so awesome. Love your shaker card and also on your first card the sponging through the stencil turned out very well. Those colours blend beautifully.

Talk about WOW my friend - you've made some really special cards! The graphic boldness of your first card (got to get that stamp) is perfect. The wonderful seahorse scene is just sublime and the mermaid card - Wow, love, love, love it. You go girl!
