Looking for a quick way to spruce up the next gift card you give out? I’d like to introduce you to my Colorful Gift Card Pockets!
These little pockets are super easy to make, plus they’d work for giving away some cold hard cash too. They are also a fun way to use up some of those patterned paper scraps (or gigantic mountain of not-quite-used patterned paper because you are addicted, like me) you might have laying around.
I’ve got a quick tutorial on how to make them (including DIMENSIONS for the base) over the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. Please check it out, and, maybe, just maybe, make a gift card pocket of your own. I tell you, it’s so easy
Happy World Card Making Day! I’m delighted to be joining the Technique Tuesday Design Team with some very special guests in blog hopping today.
If you’ve been hopping along, you should have arrived here from the blog of Ana Anderson. If you are just getting started hopping, welcome to the hop! The next stop on the hop is the blog of Latisha Yoast.
We’re celebrating the big day by sharing some cards created with the brand new You’re Owlsome stamp set that TT just released for WCMD. You can get the stamp set for free through Sunday with a $30 or more purchase on the Technique Tuesday website. Just pick $30 or more products on their website, then add the stamp set to your cart and enter coupon code WCMD18 at check-out which will make the stamp set free.
I’ve got one card to share with you today. It’s a little on the artsy side.
I created the multi-colored owl (and pink hearts) by creating a background paper with Distress Oxide Inks and water and then simply stamping and die-cutting them with the matching dies. I think it’s a cool look and a fun way to add color without actually using markers and pencils like we often tell ourselves we have to do.
The background on my card was created with Washi tape and good ol’ black cardstock. For fun, I took a paint brush and flicked on splotches of diluted white paint.
Turned out pretty good, I think.
Alright! Be sure comment as you hop today as Technique Tuesday will be picking one person to give a gift certificate to. The lucky person will be selected at random from one of the hop stops. The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog.
And here’s the compete list of hoppers. Don’t forget that Latisha is the next stop. She’d love for you to visit.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by, friends.
Got a quick Christmas card to share with you today.
Made this guy with the new String of Lights stamp set from Technique Tuesday.
It was quick and easy to put together with the stamp set, cardstock, a few ink pads and sponge daubers.
The ink daubing technique is pretty easy and could easily be done with all kinds of stamped images, not just these ones.
Anyway, here’s a super quick, no-frills video I put together for you to show you the technique.
I hope you liked the video and enjoyed seeing how the card came together. If you’d like to see more videos from me, let me know.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by, friends!

The October release from Technique Tuesday is live, and I’m here to share a few more projects I created with the new goods.
Meet Card No. 1.
This one uses the new Christmas Lights Border die. The die was inspired by the lights in my String of Lights stamp set and is such that you can use the words in the stamp set with it.
This card took a little extra effort to put it together. That’s because I cut the die twice. Once was for the panel you see on the card. The second time was to make a stencil from cardstock that I used to add color to the lights, as well as the light’s cord.
It took awhile to put it together, but i think the results were totally worth it.
And meet Card No. 2.
This one uses the String of Lights stamp set. It’s another non-traditional color scheme.
I had so much fun playing with this stamp set as the bulbs are just really easy to color in with markers.
To give the cord a bit of pop, I added a few dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I just dig that stuff.
Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Don’t forget to stop by the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today.
