Welcome to the hop! Today we are celebrating the Technique Junkie Newsletter's Annual CD sale - all ANNUAL CDs are just $10.00 plus postage! This is a huge savings, and is a great way to catch up with techniques from previous issues. Each of the CDs has between 70 and 100 tutorials on them, in step-by-step, pictorial format. Information about each CD, with a list of what is on each and a link to order, is HERE: http://www.techniquejunkies.com/cd-sale-612.html.
If you arrived from Jackie's Blog, you have reached the final stop. If this is your first stop, I suggest you start at the Design Team Blog so you can see all of the artwork. Each of the designers in the hop are celebrating by showing you a few projects from one of the nine Annual CDs.
As the final stop on the hop, I am featuring CD9. I made three cards from tutorials on the CD, two from the June 2011 issue and one from CD 9's bonus techniques. Each CD has 10 bonus techniques on them that are only found on the CD.
The top card shows the Copic Airbrush Embossing technique. These stamps from Mark's Finest Papers were practically MADE for this technique!
The fishy card in the middle shows the Color Sandwich Technique. I changed it up just a little by switching the fish around so that the colors pop more. I couldn't resist the pearls on the eyes, either! The stamps on the fish card are from I Brake for Stamps.
Finally, the last card features the Negative Strips Technique, one of CD9's bonus tutorials. The Impression Obsession stamps used for this card -- both the front image and the two background stamps, were perfect for this technique.
I hope you have enjoyed this hop! I encourage you to consider the CDs, too, if you don't already have them.They are a great bargain for the price!
