Blog Hop and Day 18 of the 30 Days of Christmas!

Today we are celebrating two-fold! It is November 1st, and we are celebrating the final release of the year for Technique Junkies stamps with a blog hop. In addition, it is Day 18 of the 30 Days of Christmas -- and I am using some of the new releases to celebrate!

If you arrived here from Kathy Stacey's blog, you are in the right place! If not, I encourage you to start at the beginning of the hop. Here is the entire lineup:

The card above uses the Fresh Chevron background. I created an Ombre' effect by applying three colors of stains directly to the stamp:










The first color was applied to the top 1/3 of the stamp, directly to the rubber.
The next color was applied to the center portion, direct to stamp.
The final color was added to the bottom 1/3 of the stamp.



Spray the stamp lightly with water and stamp onto watercolor paper. Use a heat tool to dry piece fully.

The focal point of the stamp is a new November stamp called Doxie's Guilt Trip.  I just think it is the cutest stamp! I added a ribbon around Doxie's neck and added the Merry Christmas 2 stamp so the Doxie can help us celebrate the season!

Don't forget that the Christmas sale has been extended to November 12th -- 20% off all Christmas stamps! Use the word Christmas at checkout for your discount.

I hope you have enjoyed the hop today. Don't forget to go to the Technique Junkies website to get your 15% off of the November stamps!

It's always so fun to go through the hop and see all your new stamps Pat. I love this puppy. I had a few of these weenie dogs growing up and they are so fabulous. Great release!!!

Love your card and how you used the chevron stamp- stains and then misted!

Pat, what great stamps. The bridge stamp just grabbed me and your cards with it are really amazing. Definitely on my list!

Cute cute doggie and card. Blended Stains with a Mist, perhaps? Close enough! xoxo

Pat, I bought this stamp just a few days ago and it's already arrived! Thank you. We are on our third Doxie and love their personalities. I am using this for my Christmas cards this year. Using my Misti it stamps perfectly the first time so I got 25 done right away. Going to cut additional paper for more. Love it!
