May 2020 New Stamp Release Celebration

It's release day! This is always my favorite day of the month because I can show off all our "goodies!"  Today we have 15 very special stamps for you. All of the new stamps may be found in the May 2020 New Stamp Release category, and are 15% off through May 8th.

The design team is joining me in celebrating the release, and links to their blogs, with their artwork, are below. Please take a few minutes to see what they have made from the new release - their artwork is very inspiring.
I had a blast creating with these stamps! Let me show you some of the things I made:
Patti Gilliam
Judy Jackson
Lynda Pleckan

My first card, above, uses the Tulip with Text background stamp. I colored my tulip with Copic markers and highlighted certain parts with Pearlescent watercolors. It is very shimmery in person - here is a close-up:

Next I had some fun combining the Old Man stamp with the Inside out: Old Fart set. The Old Fart set is so much fun because it offers a little snarky surprise on the inside of the card (as do all the Inside Out sets). If you love this old man, you might want to also take a look at the Life is Short stamp - he pairs perfectly with that, too. Here is the outside, and the inside, of the card:

Next., my cat card. I used the A Little Black Cat stamp and cut it out.  This stamp amazed me. I stamped it ONCE with Versafine black ink to get this coverage. That is the effect of no added chemicals in our stamp making process - nothing comes between you and the stamp.

The background of this stamp is grey, black, white and silver washi tapes.  It couldn't have been simpler!

Next, I used the Rose Circles stamp as a background with the words Simply and Enjoy from the Five Fab Phrases set:

And finally today, I used the No-one Will Notice stamp as a focal image over the previously-released Itoh Peonies stamp...just for fun!

So that is all for ME today.I hope you enjoy the work from the TJ Team:

A great array of cards. I really like the yellow you used on the background on your tulip card.
