OCTOBER HOP with TECHNIQUE JUNKIES

Welcome back, TJ Fans! We have some fun stamps for the October Release and I'm excited to be able to share them with you! 



All the new releases are 15% off until October 8th, so you'll want to shop early! No code is needed, it will automatically be applied at checkout. (And save 10% off any other stamp, any time, by using the code TJ10Ro).

If you've arrived from the very creative Jeanne, you're on the right track. If not, you may want to start at the very beginning so you don't miss a thing!



I have four cards with five new stamps to show you...let's get going!

The first card features Let It Snow. Such a fun stamp! I love the whimsy, I love the font, I love the size....I just love the stamp! Of course, you know me, I had to do a little surgery by separating the sentiment from the image so I could place it anywhere on the project or use it alone.



It's so hard to see in the photo, but I used Nuvo Glitter Markers on some of the elements to give it a little twinkly pop. I couldn't help but turn it into a snow globe and added some Nuvo Drops for snow. You can see some of the shine better in the closeup.



The next two cards feature some very lovely ladies, one of whom I'm sure you'll recognize! First up is Red Lipstick Day.



I Love Lucy! (punny). I still use some of her "Lucy-isms" today...Like when my husband asks if what I'm wearing is new (it is, but...) I respond "oh, it's just something I pulled out of my closet". Not a lie, it was hanging there since yesterday. lol

Here's a better glimpse at the image.



And to keep her company, another lovely with a fantastic quip! Take a look at Need a Crown!



Since I'm am teased about being the "queen" at work (my license plate even says so, as does my parking sign), I am particularly fond of this one! FYI, the background paper is done with the shaving cream technique. Here's a closeup of the glimmer in her crown, again done with the Nuvo Glitter Markers.



And last up, Turn on the Light. Such a great sentiment!!! The background is Nordic Knit. I can see using that background for Valentine's Day as well. If you look closely, those are tiny hearts on the background. But turned sideways, they look more patterned and less "heart-y".



There are plenty more stamps in the release, as my Design Team Sisters will show you. Next up, the crafty Beth Norman has some great projects to share!

I'll be back with a couple more new projects throughout the month, so visit again! 

Til next time,
Keepin' It Inky!
