Technique Junkies May New Release & Blog Hop

April showers bring May flowers.  What does May bring?  Fabulous new stamps from Technique Junkies!  
Welcome to the   Technique Junkies May New Release Blog Hop!  If you are here from  Beth Norman's  blog, you are in the right place.  If not, head on over to the Technique Junkies blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

Pour yourself a cuppa, and sit back and enjoy the hop.  When you make your list, remember that all of the May new release stamps are 15% off until May 8th!  Your discount will be applied at checkout.  To get 10% off any non-release stamps, please use my code TJ10Lynda.

Now, pour yourself a cuppa, sit back, relax and enjoy the hop!  I have two three cards to share today, with more to come soon.

This card features the fabulous Side Hat and elegant Sketched Flowers new release stamps.  I also used Classy & Fabulous (verse - non-release).

For the background, I stamped the Sketched Flowers with TH distress ink.  I stamped off on scrap paper to get a second generation lighter background.  

I embossed Side Hat in black and red, then fussy-cut it and used craft foam to adhere and raise it over the background.  Some fancy ribbon and a feather and gemstone embellish the hat.  All is layered onto red card stock, then onto a white card.  I added the sentiment, and another gemstone.

OK...I couldn't resist just one more, cuz I just adore these little owls!.....
I used an owl from the You're A Hoot (set of 7) , and a stencil from the A Colorful Life Designs line.  I sponged spun sugar distress ink through the stencil to create the background.  I watercolored the owl with my Arteza real brush markers, fussy-cut her, and gave her a feather to stand on.  That's it...easy-peasy. 

From here, hop on over to Pat Huntoon's blog for more inspiration and ideas with her release projects.

And remember, to get 10% off non-release stamps to use with the new release stamps, which are 15% off until May 8th, just use my code TJ10Lynda.
