Technique Junkie Treasure Hunt!

Welcome to the next stop on the Technique Junkies Treasure Hunt! If you have arrived here without stopping first at the Design Junkies Blog, you need to head back there so you can get the info on what you're hunting for.

During the Treasure Hunt the TJ Designers will be showing sneak peeks of techniques from the Oct/Sept Technique Junkie newsletter. My sample above is the Shadowbox Card technique - one of the coolest techs I've seen in ages. I changed mine up a bit by stamping chicken wire on acetate and putting that in my window. I think it really enhances the 3-d quality of this card. What's great is that the whole thing folds flat for mailing!

The Country Girl stamp collection from Oxford Impressions is one of my all-time favorite stamp sets. Can you believe the little girl and the house are both rubber stamps?! I will never stop being amazed by photo realistic stamps. I have used them with Paper Temptress' Heavenly White Premium Ultrasmooth cardstock. This is probably the BEST white cardstock I have ever used. The finish is silky smooth and it takes ink wonderfully, with no bleeding. You get a crisp clean image every time.

I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek! Your next stop in the hunt is Manna's fantastic blog. We will be having a treasure hunt on the last Monday of every month, so make sure you check back in October!
