It’s almost release time again at Technique Tuesday, and I’m excited to share with you today a card made with some of the new products that will debut on June 1st.
This card features the new Strawberry stamp set, as well as the new Jam Jar Labels dies.
I went out of the box with this one. I was inspired to do some embossing by Amy, who has created some really eye catching cards where she had embossed images with white ink and then added color to them.
I heat embossed the Strawberry plant with white embossing powder onto watercolor paper. (Of course, the first thing I did was brush over the panel with an embossing buddy.) And then I used my Zig Quick Color Markers to add a little bit of color to the panel. Then I used a water pen to spread the color around.
The panel looked kinda ugly as it drying, but what a difference a few hours makes! It sure looks pretty now.
Once I plopped the panel on my card, I added some patterned paper strips along the side. And I added the stamped label, sequins and gold thread. Wondering where that gold thread is? Look under the label. It’s subtle but adds just the right hint of sparkle.
You’ll find the Strawberry Stamp Set, plus the label dies, on the New Products page on the Technique Tuesday website on the 1st. Be sure to stop by their blog today, too, to see the full reveal of some of the new products and to find links to the rest of the design team members sharing projects today.
Be back tomorrow.
