I'm back!

Hello there!

It's August already, how did that happen so quickly?
Today, I am sharing two brand new stamps from Technique Junkies
I so love their release this month, and can't wait to share some cards with you!
Remember that there is 15% off of all new release items until August 8th - no code needed, they will be discounted at checkout!

Here are all of the new stamps - check out the bundle!

Things are still very hectic here, but I really wanted to share the new sentiment, Look Beside You, and a great new background stamp, Painted Background, so here we go!

The first four cards were made using the Painted Background stamp, and an older sentiment set, Love, Faith, and Peace. The background was first stamped, then ink blended using the same ink color. The sentiment was also stamped with the same ink color on each card. These were easy, and could definitely be mass produced!

For this card, I used the new sentiment, Look Beside You, simply stamping in black ink onto a blank card base that was already prepped and ready to go. I think it was from a prior kit and didn't get used - easy peasy!

Here's a view of the card opened.

Sometimes, I find that patterned paper saves my bacon! When I'm in a huge rush, I almost always look for a pretty piece of patterned paper. The paper was adhered to a card base, and the sentiment was stamped and layered over top of card base, with a thin gold strip on the side. Ta-da!

I used some watercolor paper and watercolor markers for this base. I scribbled the markers over top of the stamp, and spritzed with water. It's always fun to see what the colors will look like. In this case, I tried for a rainbow look.

Black on Kraft is always a good look, so that's what happened here. The sentiment was heat embossed, but the background was simply stamped in black ink. I like the simplicity of this one.

Thanks for stopping by today!
