Blog Hop Celebration: New Rita Barakat Designs!


I am so pleased to have a new illustrator for Technique Junkies: Rita Barakat. In celebration of the 10 new stamps being released today that Rita designed, we have a HUGE blog hop! Not only are the TJ Designers hopping, but Rita has 10 of her friends playing along, too.

If this is your first stop, please take a moment and start at the beginning of the hop on the TJ Design Team Blog. The artwork all along is great, and you are sure to be inspired!

Rita has a wonderful design style and I am proud to be offering her stamps. They are so upbeat and happy!  If you have gone through the hop, I think you agree with me.

So here are my contributions to this wonderful hop...
 First, the card above uses the Rita Barakat Sweetie Stamp as the focal image.  I popped the image on a panel that uses the RB Floral Border stamp, along with one of the sentiments from the Sweet Fairy Tale Set.  This is layered over a Love Script panel that was colored with using the Glitter Marker Resist Technique.

My second piece uses the Zoe Stamp as the focal image. I popped Zoe over the Floral Border. Both were colored with Nuvo Glitter Markers.  The sentiment is one from the Typewriter Set.

I hope you enjoyed the hop today and are inspired by all the artwork. Make sure to grab a 10% discount code from one of the TJ or RB designers to get 10% off your purchase today, too!

Hope your day is as happy as these stamps are!

Love the glitter marker resist on the first card - the floral border takes on a new meaning after seeing this card. And I don't know much about Nuvo Glitter Markers but after seeing the Zoe card and what you did with the floral border stamp, I may have to go out and purchase a set. Thank you for the inspiration.

I too love Rita's upbeat and positive sentiments and images!! Your two beautiful cards are so fun and a great use of pairing images and sentiments! Love the pretty purple-pink coloring on the first and the lovely soft coloring on the second. This blog hop really is introducing me to talented designers like yourself. Am your newest follower.
