Our design team has a fun celebration in store for you. Each has prepared artwork with the stamps, which you can see here:

I had fun with this month's release. I love the way the backgrounds pair with the focal image stamps. Here are a few examples:

 The example above uses the Precise Posy background with the Tried Running Focal image.  I used colored pencils for each of the posies and for the focal image. I really like the way these look together!

 In this example, I used the Precise Posy background again, but kept it  black and white, leaving the new Clap focal image to take center stage. The Clap stamp was colored with watercolors. Honestly, I adore this stamp in black and white.  It looks more dimensional this way, in my opinion.
 The Juggle is Real!  This punny stamp just makes me smile. The watercolored Juggle image is layered over the Op Art stamp, which was colored with blended Distress Oxide Inks.  The juggle stamp is a nice way to bring a smile to someone's face in light of the trying times we are going through right now.

Finally, I used the Stairway to the Stars stamp over the previously-released Star Collage stamp. Believe it or not, both the top focal image and the collage base were stamped in black ink on pink paper. Framboise Aladine IZINK Dye ink was blended over the background, changing the color of the paper. Glitter Gel pens were used on the stars, and although they appear silver here, they are actually red. 

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you love this month's release and will order a few for yourself! Make sure to take advantage of the 15% discount before April 8th, too!

Stay home, stay healthy and keep crafting!

I'm so glad you demo'd the Op Art stamp!! It looked so imposing to me. I wasn't even sure how to really "play" with it. Now I know EXACTLY what to do! This is what I love about TJ...showing me things to try so that nothing seems overwhelming. Love!
