Technique Junkies Sensational Stencils Blog Hop

The Technique Junkie Newsletter Design Team is back with another fantastic Blog Hop for you. Introducing the newest CD:
Sensational Stencils!
This newest CD from Technique Junkies has 40 tutorials!! The tutorials are all so much fun I couldn't stop creating so I have many examples for you.
You can get to the CD page from here where you can order it and click on the link at the bottom to see a pictorial of the techniques! 
You should have arrived here from Jane's Blog and I am certain you have enjoyed her fabulous cards. The first two cards I am showcasing use the Layered Stencil technique.

Same technique, two completely different cards! The possibilities are endless! I could have done pages of this technique as it is fun and really highlights the stamps you use. All stamps on both cards are from Technique Junkies !!!
This card was made using the Masked Stencil Technique and once again all the stamps are from Technique Junkies stamp line. This card seems so joyful to me and the stenciled strip on the side adds just the right touch. I like this technique as it leaves you space for a message, design or anything else you may want to add to compliment your stenciled strip.
Lastly, this card uses the Distressed Removal technique. Let me tell you, this technique is so much fun! For the lighter daisies, I just left the water on a lot longer and rewet it a few times. I really love this card and once more all Technique Junkie stamps were used!
I hope you have enjoyed my card samples from the new Sensational Stencils CD. They were so much fun to create.
Your next stop is Shelly's Blog You don't want to miss her creations.
In case you lose your way while OOOHing and AAAHing over everyone's examples here is the complete list of design team participants in the order you should be looking at them:

Have a great day and thank you for your visit and support of Technique Junkies!

Catching Up Part Two

Well it's been longer than I had hoped for this second installment of Catching Up to be published.
It has been a long very hot summer here in the Arizona desert, and it causes severe fatigue because of my MS. Enough of that. Let's get to the cards!!

 All three cards above use the TJ technique Corrugated Cut Window. It is from the August/September 2014 newsletter.
This card uses the TJ technique Diagonal Images. It is from the February/March 2014 newsletter.

The above two card use the Waxy Window technique from the August/September 2014 TJ newsletter.

These two cards use the Copic Color on Color technique from the August/September 2014 TJ newsletter.


This is the Faux Embroidered Flower technique from the June 2013 TJ newsletter. 
This card uses the Triple Embossing technique from the June 2013 TJ newsletter.
I think I must quit for now. I apologize for the abbreviated version of this Catch Up but I felt it more important to show you the cards than give all the verbiage.
Stay Stamping!
