Happy New Year -- Let's HOP!

Happy New Year! Hopefully you have arrived here from Beth's blog, and have had the chance to go through our hop with us. If not, stop right now and head on over to the Design Team Blog. We have new stamps for the New Year! You won't want to miss what the Team has in store for you this hop, and it is a great way to see this month's new stamps in action.

Don't forget - all of the January Release Stamps are 15% off until January 8th. Who doesn't want to save a little this time of year?

Today I have a few new cards to show you using some of the new designs. First, this one uses a great stamp called Happy Birthday Advice:

 I paired it up with the Pom Pom Swag Stamp (released this fall) 'cause I continue to be in love with that stamp. Its so festive! The background was made using a new product called MINX -- I am rolling it out to you later this month. TO DIE FOR shimmer!

Next, another couple of stamps that are dear to me, since I am a voracious reader (well, truthfully, I mainly listen to books on tape since I travel so much!). The background uses a large stamp called Books, and the sentiment is one from the new Bookworms Set.  If you love to read, you should check it out!
 Finally -- this sweet dog from the Let's Roll set.  I cropped this one a little funk, but you get the idea!  It is a set of two, with the dog/truck stamp and Lets Roll stamp separate.  I chose to put my sentiment inside the card.  Ever have a dog that loved car rides? I have two of them that do!
The background stamp used here is the Medium Porcelain Crackle Background. It is a stamp that has been in the line for years and years -- and it is still current!

As for me...I am one happy 2016-er. Technique Junkies is moving along full-speed ahead, and I am so excited to continue to share new things with you! New Ideas, New Stamps, New Techniques -- everything coming this year has an aura of excitement. Strap in and enjoy the ride!
