Technique Tuesday Dec. Countdown – Day 2

Hi, friends!

Me again. I’m back, sharing a couple more cards made with some new products that will debut Dec. 1st on the Technique Tuesday website.

Today’s cards were made with the new Joyous Juniper stamp set from their Greenhouse Society.


This new stamp set is lovely. It comes with a branch, an extra berry to make the branch bigger and a couple sayings

For this card, I stamped the branch, colored it in with markers and then added some glitzy by putting on some glitter glue.FindBeautyJuniperPurple-teri

Turned out kinda fun!

I again used the branch on this second card. This time, I went for more blue than purple berries so I used a softer color scheme. Again, I wanted there to be a little glitz so I added some glitter glue to the edges of the berries.


I also used colored pencils to add a little extra dark highlights to the Juniper branch after I did the initial coloring with markers.


It turned out pretty fun, I think.

You’ll find all the new Technique Tuesday products here on the 1st. And you’ll find a list of all the TT design team members hopping today on their blog.

I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for stopping by.

Technique Tuesday Countdown: Day 2

Hi, gang!

I’m back with a new more new Technique Tuesday projects. These cards feature products that will debut on August 1st on their website.

Let’s get started.

A stamped card featuring an Octopus by Teri |

This first card features the new Olive the Octopus stamps and dies. Olive is the latest critter Technique Tuesday’s Animal House collection. (They’ve got a sea creatures them going on right now. Last month, they introduced Simon & Sandy Seahorse.)

I wanted to create a happy scene so I used patterned paper for my background here. And then I added bubbles created with drops of Glossy Accents. The color scheme? I decided fun colors rather than realistic colors was more jam this time.

A stamped card featuring flowers by Teri |

This card features the new Sunny Flowers stamp set. This is a really good set to color with markers! (Ask TT’s Bev. If I struggle with coloring stamps with markers, I never hold that back from telling her and the gang.) The flowers are nice and open, and you can really get to the small spots easily with your marker tips. I love that.

Once I colored in the flowers and vase, I fussy cut them out rather than using the coordinating dies. And then I added a layer of Glossy Accents to the vase to make it look, well, glassy vase like. I think it turned out pretty fun!

Alright! That’s it for today. Be sure to stop by the Technique Tuesday blog once again to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. Plus be sure to visit the New Products page on the Technique Tuesday website on the 1st to snag all the products that have caught your eye!


Technique Tuesday Countdown: Day 1


Hi, friends!

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.

Today’s card

Hello all!

Just another card to share today.

Just Because by Teri

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. 😉

Just Because by Teri

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.

Ranunculus - Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday

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!

Today’s Card

Hi all!

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!



Today’s card (10-25)

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!

Today’s card (10-15)

Hi all!

Meet today’s card!

2_GH_1013_HappyHolidays_teriWhipped 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. 😉

Technique-Tuesday-Evergreen-Greenhouse-Clear-Stamps-MediumI stamped the trees once and then stamped again (without re-inking) to create the shadow look.

2_gh_1013_HappyHolidays2_teriKinda 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!

Today’s card (4-15)


Hi all!

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. 🙂

Technique Tuesday: Greenhouse Society (12-25)

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!

Technique Tuesday: Greenhouse Society (12-15)

Hi all!

Meet today’s card.


This one uses December’s Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

Here’s a peek of the new set.


Watch for it to show up on the Greenhouse Society page on TT’s Web site.

I stamped the flowers on patterned paper and then used good old colored pencils to color them in.


The sentiment is also from the new stamp set.

That’s all for now. Be back again later, gators.
