Happy September Release Day!

We are so thrilled with the new release we decided to do something extra special! 

We will be choosing TWO lucky people who comment on this month's release hop - those two people will each win a $100 Technique Junkies gift certificate!!! 
The more you comment the more chances you have to win, so don't miss a single stop along the hop! Gift Certificate winners will be announced on September 5th.
Only one comment entry per blog please. 


All of the September 2017 New Release stamps are 15% off through September 8th!
We can all use a little bargain, right? No codes needed, just put them in
your shopping cart and the discount will be applied at checkout.

Here are some projects from Jeanne to get the party started! 

My first card uses Christmas Cocktail. I used swiped dye ink and then bleach for my background. The drink image was watercolored, cut out and layered on top. 



My next card uses Rustic Pine and Gifts of Christmas (set of 5). This is another ink and bleach background. This time I used a paintbrush to apply the bleach. Make sure and check out our current challenge HERE for a variation of this technique. 

Now hop on over to our very special Guest Designer...

Have a great day!

I like the idea of using bleach - not wanting to bleach my clothes accidentally keeps me from going there!

Lovely cards. Another person who has seen the bleach technique but a bit shy to try. Maybe now I will give it a whirl after seeing these backgrounds. So nice of you to do this giveaway.

Good stuff! Love the Rustic Pine card, and the drink one, too, especially the bleaching technique, I haven't used that one in quite some time. Will have to get out some bleach and give it a go again. Just maybe on some brand new TJ stamps. Just need to decide which ones. Thanks for sharing.

Love the Christmas cocktail stamp. I'm always looking for a new and different take on a "tropical" Christmas theme since I'm here in Florida and I think this would fit the bill. Just add a little paper umbrella and away we go....!!

Love the pine tree card! Love the watercolor look.
