Bodacious Backgrounds

 There is nothing better for me than learning new ways to use my supplies to make cards!  Today, some of the Design Team members at Technique Junkies are joining T.J owner Pat Huntoon in a Blog Hop to present to you some of the techniques on a new CD-Bodacious Backgrounds.

I made two cards for the hop- both use supplies I already have on hand  in my 'stash'.
This first card is called the Outlined Resist technique.
 This card uses the Roses background image (S483) from Technique Junkies/formerly Stamp Camp. I used a combination of ink brands for this quick and easy floral delight. My Mother is a Master gardener and has the most beautiful roses, so images of Roses always make me think of Mom: )
 Next, I made a bright and cheery card using the Irresistible Rainbow technique.A perfect Spring card...well, if Spring ever decided to arrive here to stay!
 Again, I used stamps from Technique Junkies/formerly known as Stamp Camp.The Blue and Yellow cardstocks I used are from Paper Temptress- there is a little bit of sparkle in it, and I used a stick pin, ribbon and charms from my stash.

Here is the Blog Hop order:
