Technique Junkies Blog Hop and New Releases for May

Happy May Day Junkies!! Welcome to my blog.   Ahhhhh do you smell it?  Spring is in the air. I think we have finally made it through Winter.  May is here and it hasn't come a day too soon, especially for those of you that live in the Northeast. What a great reason to celebrate.  Well, we're celebrating the month of May at Technique Junkies too!

The new May Release stamps are now available!!  You can get them HERE. AND for the next week all May Release stamps are 15% off.  Make sure and check out the new products and accessories that are now available, such as stencils, Art Anthology colorations and Art Anthology dimensional mediums, just to name a few. 

If you are following along on the Hop, you should have just come from Gini Cagle's Blog. She does such beautiful work! 
If you didn't come from her blog and would like to join in on the Hop you'll want to start out at the  Design Team Blog and work your way through to the end.  The Design Team has been busy creating.  I think you'll find loads of inspiration and ideas.   I have listed all of the blogs for the hop below, in order.

Here are the cards I created using a couple of the new stamps.
I really love anything country so this first stamp was a favorite as soon as I saw it. Here's how I made it:   I stamped both stamps; Chicken and Be Silly in Memento Cocoa Brown.  I distressed around the edges of the chicken image and around the edge of the patterned paper I matted it on.  I cut the Be Silly image into the shape of a tag.  A Cuttlebug embossing folder (Honeycomb) was used to create the white background.  I added some jute ribbon, twine and a wooden button as embellishments.

Now this stamp was a favorite right away as well because..... yep you guessed it.... I wanted to color it!  ha ha.  Color it I did.  I used my Copics to color this Whimsical Birthday Cake stamp.  I cut it out with a Spellbinder Die and then used a pop dot to attach it to my card.  I used a little bit of twine as an added embellishment.  This was a fast and easy card.  Those birthday's can sneak up on you and this would be a great card to make if you need one in a hurry.  

I hope you enjoyed my cards today.  Your next and last stop on the hop will be Pat Huntoon at

Please feel free to comment along the way.  Everyone loves to hear your questions and comments about their work.  

Have a spectacular Day!!


  1. Super cheerful cards today Jeri. That chicken is so cute. Love the background and how you tied that bow.

  2. Fantastic work, Jerri!! That cake looks good enough to eat--your coloring is divine!

  3. Oh WOW! Love your cards! Oh and if you'll go back to my blog now, you'll see the blog post instead of the one you commented on. For some reason, it went into draft mode when I changed it last night and didn't publish.

  4. Fantastic work. Love both cards. It never occurred to me to colour a layer of the cake in chocolate. I have three birthday cakes stamped out to colour this afternoon and I think I'll do chocolate too. You're such an inspiration.

  5. Love your cards and designs. Great work. Judy

  6. Wonderful cards, Jerri! Glad I don't have to choose a favorite :) Thanks for sharing!

  7. Such a sweet hen!!! Love the yummy second card, too!!
