May 2018 New Release Stamps!

It is May 1st and I am proud to present our brand new stamps! Today the Technique Junkies Design Team is having a blog hop, and I am the last stop on the hop. If you started at the TJ Design team blog, you are at the end of the hop. If this is your first stop, I recommend jumping on over to the team blog so that you don't miss any of the artwork.

To celebrate the new stamps, all of the stamps in the May New Release Category are 15% off through May 8th. Just add the stamps to your cart and the discount will be applied automatically.

Ready for some more inspiration?

First up is this easy-peasy card. I stamped the Sketched Flowers stamp with Silver Delicata ink and matted it on a blue background.  The focal image of this card uses the new Bad Influence stamp, also with Silver Delicata. The dresses were colored with Nuvo Glitter Markers to make them really stand out. It is a little hard to see in the picture, but I also added a touch of flesh tone colored pencil to the skin areas, just for fun.

Next up is my BEER card!  The Life and Beer image was stamped in black StazOn and colored with distress markers, then I ran the Nuvo Glitter Gloss Marker over the beer glass and suds to make them sparkle.  I layered this on an existing TJ stamp, which i think looks remarkably like beer suds: Tiger Marble.  I simply stamped that and then sprayed the background with mustard and orange sprays to get beer-like image.

I hope today's hop inspired you! Make sure to shop for the new release stamps before May 8th to receive 15% off the new stamps, and keep in mind that you can also get 10% off everything else in the TJ store by using one of the Design Team member's codes -- they each have one posted on their blogs.  Happy May Day!
