Hello Technique Junkies Stamps we are with a new month (where did the last one go?) and a new release hop for the September 2018 Technique Junkies Stamps.  This month we're excited to be showcasing some fabulous designs from Jan Tinklenberg.  

The stamps were showcasing are available at a 15% off discount, but only until September 8th.  So if you like what you see, grab them before September 8th.  No code necessary, discount will be applied in the cart. All other stamps you might like from the Technique Junkies Store  can be purchased with a 10% discount by using my code TJ10CHERI at check out.  

If you began this hop at the beginning, then you've already been to Jan's blog and that means you've also hopped here from, and seen, the fabulous creations of Lee Ann Barrett.  

I hope you'll enjoy seeing these cards which I made with these fabulous new stamps.

Using "Wolf by Moonlight"  and Shimmer Bliss Sprays (Festive Flamingo, Harvest Sunset, Wine Stain and Chestnut Mare) this card was created with a technique called "Pulled Glimmer Tutorial" which you can find in the June/July 2010 TJ Newsletter.   Really fun to do.  The sentiment I added is "One Must Live"

This gorgeous stamp is one of Jan's and is called "Autumn Leaves".  I love the versatility of this stamp.  I stamped it on a neutral colored card stock with a soft brown dye ink.  I then colored it with my ColorTone pencils.  The sentiment is from the "Autumn Set of 6" set.  

Here's another one of Jan's stamps.  This one is called "Autumn Blessings".  To create this card, I stamped the image on kraft colored cardstock in Archival brown ink.  I then sponged and blended Distress Oxide Inks over it.  The next thing I did was spray Shimmering Bliss Gold Topper over the entire panel. Using an aqua brush and water, I removed the color from the leaves in order to soften them.  I love how this came out.  

Now, hop on over to the blog of another incredibly creative and talented lady, Stephanie Severin.  She's got amazing creations to show you.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget the 15% discount on the new stamps - but only until September 8th.  

All other stamps and Shimmer Bliss Sprays, can be purchased for a full 10% discount using my code at check out.  

Enjoy the hop.

Happy Wednesday House Friends!!!!! 

Can you believe August is over?  Summer is nearly at an end?  I'm in disbelief!!!! Where do those summer days go?  I was lamenting that thought while I created my card for this week's challenge.  

There's a 5th Wednesday in this month, and therefore an additional challenge for the month at The House That Stamps Built, and it's a sketch challenge.  

I used RI stamps #4511-I "Kite", 9003-E "Happy Summer" and 9005-E "Flutter By".  The kites were colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment was the creative challenge on this  card.  I used scotch tape to mask certain areas on each sentiment stamp in order to get the words positioned just right.  I also used a sheet of acrylic packaging to make sure my words were positioned where I wanted them, as I used my MISTI.  

For detail, I added Washi tape to the far edge and some stenciling. I used an edge die  to put focus on the kites....(I rarely use this die....note to have too much stuff).  

I hope you found some inspiration here today and if you'd like more, please check out the blogs of my incredible team mates

Please join our challenge!  You can find the details at THE HOUSE. If you play along with each of our challenges every week, you get multiple enteries in winning a $25.00 GC for Repeat Impressions stamps.  The more you enter the more chances you have of winning.

Hi there Technique Junkies Stamps fans....

I had such a fun time creating this card.  I've had these stamps for awhile and just got around to creating with them. I recalled an older technique I'd seen in one of the TJ Newsletters, thinking it might work for these stamps.  I really like how it all came together.  I'll be trying it on other stamps in the future.  

Before I direct you to the information on how I created it, I'd like to tell you about an offer to purchase these stamps, or any other stamps you might fall in love with at the Technique Junkies Stamps store, for a full 10% off discount by using my discount code TJ10Cheri at check out.  The discount applies to the fabulous Shimmering Bliss sprays and Ken Oliver Color Burst Pigment Powders.  

The stamps I used here are "Herringbone Tweed""Pretty Cowgirl" and "Spurs".  The technique is called "Layered Masking" and it's from the February/March 2012 Technique Junkies Newsletter.    Check it out, it's really fun to do. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you found some inspiration and will give this technique a try.
