TJ Inkspiration: Two videos with tons of art!

 Today I have two videos for you!

First, we released 15 new stamps this month and I am proud to offer this video showcasing the May stamps. Don't forget that today (Friday May 8, 2020) is the last day to get the May 2020 New Release Stamps for 15% off! Make sure to take advantage of the discount before it is gone.  Here is the New Release Artwork video:

Next, our third week of the TJ WWDB challenge was another fun week!  Our theme for week 3 was Thinking of You Cards. We again had great participation from both customers and the Technique Junkies Design Team. The video below displays all the compiled artwork from the week. I hope you are inspired to create some Thinking of You cards of your own.

This week, all customer entrants were "put into a hat" and one name was drawn randomly to win the $50.00 gift certificate to the Technique Junkies store! This week, our winner is...
April Cassidy!
April created great cards this week within the Thinking of you theme. April, watch your email for your gift certificate.

Week Four is upon us, so our theme this week is to make Encouragement cards.  This theme is open to a pretty wide interpretation - I can't wait to see what you make with Technique Junkies Stamps within the theme. Don't forget the envelope!

To get us jump-started, here is the first card of the week, from me:
Shoot for the Moon

Today's card uses the brand new Shoot for the Moon focal image stamp with the previously released Star Stream stamp in the background. 

Here is an overview of the challenge again:
Our challenge will run for four weeks, with each of the four weeks featuring a different theme. Each week, you can make one or more cards with envelopes using Technique Junkies stamps within a weekly theme. Simply post them to the Technique Junkies FaceBook group OR email them directly to me.  

Each week, one of the challenge cards will be selected RANDOMLY and will win a $50.00 gift certificate to the Technique Junkies online store!  

That is $50.00 PER WEEK that we will be giving away with this challenge!

Here are the "rules" and the themes:
1. Create a card using Technique Junkies Stamps or Foils. Please, no other companies' stamps on your creations. Dies, stencils and other embellishments are welcomed, but kindly remember that it is a company-sponsored challenge.
2. You must include a decorated envelope with your card entry.
3. Email your card to OR post to the Technique Junkies Facebook Group with the following hashtag: #WWDB. 
4. You may post a different card every day. Cards that have been posted to the Technique Junkies FaceBook group prior to the start of the challenge may not be used in this challenge. Each card posted must be made by the poster and only be posted once during the contest.
5. One submitted entry (card) will be selected randomly at the end of the week, and a $50.00 gift certificate winner will be announced on this email and to the FaceBook group on the following Friday.

Here is the final theme:
Week Four 5/8 - 5/14 Encouragement card:
Pretty broad spectrum here - but inspiration, thinking of you, thank you, all encompassed here, too. Again, an envelope is necessary.

I can't wait to see what you make!
I hope you are a little inkspired by today's issue. See you next week!
