March Release and Blog Hop

Today is March 1st - and that means that we have added new stamps to the Technique Junkies line-up! Today we are celebrating the release with a blog hop, and you have reached the last stop.  If this is your FIRST stop, I suggest you start at the beginning so that you can see all of the gorgeous artwork from the Technique Junkies Design Team.  Start HERE. If you came from the amazing Lynda's blog, you are in the right place!

All of the new March 2018 release stamps are 15% off through March 8th, too! Just add them to your cart and they will be automatically discounted at checkout. Hopefully you picked up a TJ designer code from the hop, too, so that you can take 10% off of everything else in the store.
Ready for a bit more inspiration?

First I used the Birthday Cat stamp. For the background, I used a piece of Color Burst-colored piece that I cut into strips, and used Gilding flakes as grout. 

Next, I combined the Fly stamp as a focal image, with the Clouds Stamp in the background. This is probably the easiest card I made all year!. The clouds stamp is beautiful with an application of light blue ink. 

I used the Free Spirit set to create my dreamy frame. THis is layered over a swatch of Color Burst coloring. I used the Fresh Florals set, specifically the Prussian Blue and the Wisteria dyes.

Finally, I used the Faith Family, Farming set on Kraft.  I used Distress Oxides to blend the layers of the top image, and lightly colored the barn with pastel pencils.

I hope you were inspired today by the hop and all of the beautiful artwork from the design team. I also hope you found a few things to love in the new release, too!

Make sure to make your selections by March 8th to receive the 15% discount on the new release stamps.

Until next time,

Amazing cards, Pat. I especially LOVE what you did with cutting pieces of the ColorBurst panel to create that fabulous background on the first one! Stunning!

Terrific work Pat. Isn't it nice when a card, such as your birds, can do up so easily?! I am so in love with your background with your cat. I saw in on FB and wondered how you did it.
