Bodacious Background Stamp Blog Hop - by Judy Jackson

Good morning from Judy Jackson.  This is a very good  day!  A super duper Blog Hop kind of day!  The terrific Technique Junkies Design Team welcomes you to another fabulous Blog Hop beginning at 6:00 AM EST!! We are showcasing the newest addition to the Technique Junkies CD series called the Bodacious Background Stamp CD. 

 Do you have background stamps that do not see ink very often?  Do you have background stamps you "love" but can't seem to find a fun way to creatively use them?  Do you have art supplies in your craft area that you wish you knew how you could use them with your background stamps?  Well, today can be your lucky day!  Today you can see some gorgeous cards prepared for your viewing pleasure on this Blog Hop!  You do not want to miss any of these blogs! 

This new Bodacious Background Stamp CD contains 30 ways to use your background stamps in fun and creative ways!  Learn how to color, stamp and transform your background stamped images.  The CD contains 20 brand new tutorials plus 10 techniques from the TJ archives.  All 30 tutorials are in step-by-step pdf format - compatible for Macs and PCs alike.  All the tutorials are printable to 8-1/2” x 11” paper.  This is the link for the table of contents for this lovely new CD -

It is available for order TODAY by using the dropdown on the side bar.  The CD will be shipped in less than 2 weeks!  This is the direct link that will tell you all about this new CD.


 
I have four samples for you to see today.  The techniques for these cards use techniques found on this Bodacious Background Stamp CD.  This first card uses the Distress Stains Direct technique.  The stamps are from Impression Obsession (the background stamp) and Technique Junkie Stamps (the flower and the verse).  You can find the flower on this web page: http://www.stampcamp.com/nature1.html, and the verse on this web page - http://www.stampcamp.com/wordsandsayings2.html.  The flower stamp was colored with marker directly to the rubberstamp.
 
 
 

The next two cards  use the Soft Sponged Photo Stamp technique.  All of the stamps are Technique Junkie stamps.  http://www.stampcamp.com/bigstamps17.html, http://www.stampcamp.com/bigstamps8.html, http://www.stampcamp.com/wordsandsayings2.html, and http://www.stampcamp.com/quotationsets2.html.

 
This last card uses the Whitewashed Gelatos technique and this was quite the fun technique to use!  I love the results!  The stamps are from Technique Junkie Stamps (background) http://www.stampcamp.com/bigstamps30.html and Stampin' Up (flower). A curved section of "bling" is my accent!  

 
Did you have a favorite card of the four cards?  Let me know if you would please?   I will write down your names if you comment and send your one favorite card to you!  I will do this on Thursday, May 1. I must have your email address in order to contact you for your address.  Please leave it like this in your comment - PrettyStamper at junkie dot net. Then you true email address is not easy to hack. Of course this was not a "real" email address but written so you can the format.
 
All of the rest of Design Team members participating in this Blog Hop are listed below.   I hope you enjoy the Blog Hop and know that you find some beautiful cards for some wonderful stamping eye candy!  When you are here you are at the beginning of the log Hop.  Here is a list of ALL of the participants - including me:

I have enjoyed the techniques from your Bodacious Background Stamp CD...blog hop! Thank you. I need to learn more than just putting my stamp on an ink pad and pressing it to paper. My coloring needs help too;) I have a lot of stamp (lots) but not a lot of the 'other things' that can be used to stamp with. I need all the inspiration I can find. thank you, -con
