TJ New Release and Blog Hop

Incredibly, it is September 1st already and the summer has flown by.  The good news is that we have new stamps to celebrate the fall!  Today we are celebrating the release of a bunch of new images, along with some Stamp and Spray bundles too.  I am the last stop on the Technique Junkies Design Team blog hop, so if this is your first stop, please take a moment to go back to the beginning of the hop to the Design Team Blog and start over -- the artwork is spooky, fun, and inspiring this month!

As usual, you will receive 15% off on all of the new September 2018 Stamp Releases from today, September 1st, through September 8th.  Just add what you like to your cart, and they will be reduced automatically at checkout.  We have two new Stamp and Spray Bundles, with videos, for you, too.  Go take a look!

I had a blast with the stamps this month. Here are some samples from me:

First, the Raven Collage Stamp.  I love this background. It is eerie and vaguely romantic all at the same time! I stamped the image with StazOn ink on watercolor paper, then painted it with Dragons Blood and Harvest Sunset Shimmering Bliss Sprays. I then went back over the raven with a black marker, and highlighted the rose using Diamond Glaze (like Crystal Effects, or Glossy Glaze).  I thought the Raven Nevermore stamp was a perfect complement to my Raven card! (note that the paper I used for the sentiment and background is RED, not pink. For some reason it came out funny with the camera and I was making a mess while adjusting it with Photoshop, so I just left it).

Next up I have the Moments stamp. The background of this is the Cork Paper from the Spray and Play Paper Pack (it will be back in stock soon, really!). The background was sprayed with Worn Saddle and Chestnut Mare Shimmering Bliss and is just G O R G E O U S.  The Moments stamp was colored with Copic Markers to highlight the vintage alarm clock.  Love this simple creation!
It was a blast coloring the Autumn Doodles Background! I intended the palette to be very Autumnal, but somehow I introduced the blues and I think the result is so much fun!

The sentiment is from the Thanksgiving Blessings stamp set (previously released).

This card uses the Ephemeral Crow, Raven Nevermore and Old Wall Background along with the Smoldering Ash and Worn Saddle Shimmering Bliss Sprays. This is actually the card from Bundle 4 of the new Stamp and Spray Bundle release for September

Here is the video for the bundle and the card:

And Finally, Here is one of the two cards from the Stamp and Spray Bundle 3. I LOVE this new stamp, and our new illustrator, Jan Tinklenberg, who you met earlier in the hop.  Here is the video and the card that goes with it:

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed the hop and love these new stamps as much as I do!

Happy Fall,
Pat Huntoon
