March New Releases - Technique Junkies Blog Hop

Good Morning Junkies!!  Hope your March is starting off great.  Have your been getting snow or just some cold weather (it's been rainy, warm, and stormy here).  In anticipation of March being a great month and ushering in Spring , the Technique Junkies team is hosting a blog hop to share all the new exciting  March Releases with you.  So join us today as we hop into March and showcase all the new stamps  Don't forget to to visit each team members blog in order not to miss any of the fun.  If you  haven’t started at the beginning, please visit the Technique Junkie Designer Blog (http://techniquejunkies.blogspot.com) so you are sure to catch it all!

You've just seen Sally Lynns' project and I think you have to agree her work is phenomenal!!  Her cards and other projects are wonderful.

Here is the hop participants in order:

I had some really great stamps to work with for the hop, so I created a couple of projects:

Though cards aren't something I normally create, I saw the Bring Your Own Sunshine stamp and knew immediately how I wanted to use it.

1)  Stamp Bring Your Own Sunshine with black Staz-On ink onto a piece of acetate.  Trim to size.
2)  Cut a piece of yellow card slightly larger than your acetate.  Glue together with Glossy Accents
3)  Cut a piece of scrapbook paper (mine was printed with umbrellas) and mat to a piece of red card, cut to your desired card size.
4)  Add your previously mounted image to the matted card.

I veered back to my normal with the following tag.

1)  Spray a tag with Art Anthology Salmon Colorations.
2)  Stamp Vintage Butterfly Collection in black Versifine on your tag.
3)  Stamp Vintage Butterfly Collection several times in different colors.  I used Purple, Rose, and Teal.  Trim out a view butterflies.
4)  Add your colored butterflies over their matching images on your tag.
5)  Stamp Wings of Possibility onto a piece of tissue paper, trim closely, and add to your tag using matte gel medium.
6)  I happened to have a molded butterfly that I added to the bottom right corner.  Any butterfly painted in a complimentary color will work.
7)  Add fiber in matching shades.
