October Blog Hop - Last Stop!

Welcome! Today is October 1st and we have a new release for you at Technique Junkies!  This is the last stop on the TJ New Release Blog hop, so if you started here, I encourage you to go back to the TJ Design Team blog - the beginning - to start again. You won't want to miss any of the inspiration the girls have for you!

Before we get to my art, I just wanted to remind you that the October release stamps are 15% off through October 8th.  Simply add what you like to your shopping cart and they will be discounted automatically until then.

Here are a few pieces I made from the new stamps:
The first uses the new Cocktail Joy set. This was so easy to color; I just used Grey Memento ink and colored here and there with Copics. I just pulled the perfect piece of background paper from my (extensive) stash, and viola! Instant Christmas Card. I may make some of these some of my Card recipients this Christmas, but I think I might only use the top part of the stamp on the outside (Joy is just a cocktail away) and the bottom part (Merry Christmas) on the inside.

This card uses the Grace in her Heart stamp. I simply stamped her in Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, then cut her out so I could get that polka-dotted background behind her.  Again, just a simple stamp, a little cutting, and some background paper.  This is my personal favorite stamp from the release! I love inspirational and uplifting stamps and I just had to use this saying on a stamp. It was fun to design, and even more fun to use!

And for the last one today:
This uses the Give Thanks stamp with Nuvo Glitter Markers. The background is just white paper put through and embossing folder, then highlighted with ink.  This makes a great Thanksgiving card and is perfect for table place cards for Thanksgiving!

Well, that's all I have for you today. It's time to go shop! Make sure to take advantage of the 15% discount on the new October release stamps.  Thanks for coming by today!
