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.
Just another card to share today.
I lived on the edge and whipped out my markers again. Yes, I did. Everyone breathing OK? Still standing? Hope so… wink?!
I thought the new flower from Technique Tuesday’s Greenhouse Society collection, Ranunculus, was pretty… and, well, looked marker friendly for a non-friendly to markers girl like myself. So I did the marker thing again. 😉
I even did a little shading. Baby steps, people. Baby steps. I have to admit that I had a lot of fun with this one.
By the way, here’s the stamp set.
Love it so much! Ranks high on my favorites list for TT’s Greenhouse Society stamps.
I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by!
Just a card to share today.
Made this one with Technique Tuesday’s new Hello – Greenhouse Society stamp set, which debuts officially today.
I love all the phrases in the set, especially. So many different combinations to put together.
I ended with a kinda cool, kinda bleached look on the card.
I stamped the flowers on a light blue patterned paper. Then I outlined much of the flower with a light blue marker. I also added a little color in the middle of that big sunflower. It’s subtle but cool!
That’s all I have! Be back later, gators!
Well, well, well. We meet again.
I’d like to introduce you to today’s card.
It’s a bit more on the traditional side this time with the design than the last couple cards I’ve shared.
This one uses the Evergreen – Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday. I once again went for a shadow look with the set by stamping the trees once and then stamping them a second time without reinking the stamp. Really like that shadow-y feel.
That’s all I have swirling around in this little brain of mine today!
Be back again later! Hope you all are off to a good weekend!
Meet today’s card!
Whipped this bad boy up with a couple stamp sets from Technique Tuesday: Christmas Day by Ali & the Evergreen – Greenhouse Society stamp set. It goes on sale today. But here’s a sneak peek! I know people, ya know. 😉
I stamped the trees once and then stamped again (without re-inking) to create the shadow look.
Kinda fun! That’s all I have for today. Be back later! Thanks for swinging by today.
PS… Did you see this card my friend Nina made? I might have designed the Good to Snow stamp set she used to make it. Smiling big, Nina! I LOVE IT!
Just a little something, something today.
Made this one with the April Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday. It goes on sale today on their Web site. (eta: As I was writing this, I noticed you can also find it through Ellen Hutson.)
The words are from their Happyville – Home stamp set.
I went all “old school” here and whipped out a really old set of chalks to do the coloring to the tulips. To give them a bit more depth, I first colored the leaves and flowers with lighter colors of chalk and then added a layer of darker color to them.
Really seemed to help.
The patterned paper? Well, that’s just a bunch of scraps left over from other projects I’ve been working on.
That’s all I have for you for now. Be back again later, gators. 🙂
Merry Christmas to all of you out there!
I’m taking a break from the family festivities to share a quick card with you so meet today’s card.
The flowers are from the new December Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday. The words are from the So Very Thankful by Ali Edwards stamp set.
I whipped out my colored pencils and used them to color the flowers. The flower is such that it’s pretty forgiving for a non-skilled color’er like myself. 😉
I stamped the flowers on the white circle (it’s just a circle of cardstock) and colored them in. I made sure to wrap the twine around the green and white panels before adhering the circle. Because… believe me… there are times… I remember my plan to do that later… much later.
The little dots cascading down the side are gems.
Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog today. There are some pretty fab projects made with this new Greenhouse Society stamp set up there today.
Be back later! Thanks again for stopping by, all!
