Technique Tuesday Release Day!

Hi, guys!

Hooray! It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday. You’ll find all their new stamps and dies right here.

I’ve got 2 projects to share with you today that I made with the brand new 365 Days stamp set from their Memory Keeper Studio collection.

This stamp set was made with scrapbookers in mind, but it’s also pretty great for making cards. I created the background paper for their birthday card by repeatedly stamping one of the phrases in the set (that just seemed birthday friendly) over and over on cardstock.

The little brackets were stamped with a stamp from the set too. There’s a few decorative brackets in the set, btw.365BirthdayCard-teri

And I made this page with the stamp set. (This picture is one provided to me by Bev from TT. It’s her friends’ sweet little pups.)

One of the things I think is pretty great about this stamp set is that you can use it to record your goals and dreams, as well as transitions in your life. It’s also got some nice stamps that are just great for documenting everyday life, like the “Today is a Gift” phrase. 365TodayLayout-teri

Alrighty! That’s what I have for you.

I’ll be back again later. Don’t forget to stop by the Technique Tuesday blog for a completely list of design team members who are blog hopping today.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop – 1

Hi, guys!

The Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop kicks off today, and I was totally inspired to play and make a card for it!

Here we go!

PeppermintMugsCard-teri

This one uses images from an old retired stamp set (and dies) from Simon Says Stamp! called Winter Warmth. The words (and the little heart) are from the Christmas Cocoa stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

PeppermintMugsCard2-teri

Nothing really fancy here. I colored the images in with Copic markers. To give the red mug a little sparkle, I rubbed a little glue on the heart and dumped some glass glitter on top. Easy peasy.

The patterned paper on the card? That’s some older stuff from Echo Park Paper. I kinda go crazy with stripes and polka dots papers because they are timeless and can be used right away….. or a long time later (insert: after I’ve hoarded away even more patterned paper. Wink!)

Alright! That’s what I have. Be sure to check out the link up for the hop. Lots of awesome projects have already been uploaded, plus there’s a lot of great sponsors taking part as well.

Be back again later, gators.

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.

FindBeautyJuniperPurpleClose-teri

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.

gnawsomebeavercard-teri

Created this guy with the new Beau & Beatrice Beaver stamp set (and coordinating dies) from their collection of Animal House stamps and dies. They are such cute stamps…. and perfect in Oregon, where the beaver is the mascot of Oregon State. 😉 (Go, Beavs! Wink!)

gnawsomebeavercard-2-teri

This set has some cute elements for making stamped woodland scenes with as the snail, log and branch are from the set too. Super cute.

A Wreath Card and Tag

Hi, friends!

Looking for a little Christmas card and gift tag inspiration? I’m up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today, sharing a couple new projects. Here’s a little peek at the goods.

TeriAnderson-WreathCardAndMatchingGiftTag-1

I’ll give you the scoop on how I made the little wreaths. Yes, they might look simple but, wow, they took quite a few steps.

Plus I’ll tell you how I used some of the awesome products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to really make the wreaths pop off the card and tag. Talk about time savers!

I’d be tickled if you’d check the post out. Thanks for stopping by, friends. I’ll be back later in the week!

 

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Technique Tuesday

44525104_10213456480951907_1009268704120143872_n

Hi, friends!

I am super excited to share a tag inspired by Tracey McNeeley’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

What is Tracey’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event you ask? Well, for quite a few years now, Tracey has invited folks to create Christmas tags in November. It’s a super fun event with lots and lots (and lots) of tag inspiration.

Technique Tuesday is sponsoring her event today, and I’m super thrilled to contribute a tag of mine to the fun.

25Tags2018-TT-Cocoa-teri

Created this little guy with the new Christmas Cocoa set, which just came out on the 1st. (Confession time: I designed it myself.)

I stamped the mug on cardstock, colored in with markers and then fussy cut it with scissors. I applied a bunch of glue to the foam and dipped it in glass glitter to add that touch of sparkle.

I sponged some blue ink on a rectangle of cardstock and added the mug, some stamped hearts and a few drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

25DaysTag2018-2-TT-teri

Then I cut a shape and adhered the panel to it with Crafty Foam Tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I finished the tag by stamping a few words and popping a hole the top of the tag and adding some red twine. I think it turned out pretty great.

I’m planning on using this tag on a holiday package, but I think it would look pretty swell on a card too.

By the way, don’t forget to comment over on Tracey’s blog post. There’s a Technique Tuesday gift certificate up for grabs. It’s always fun to have a chance to win something. for just saying a few kind words and all. Fingers crossed that one of you takes it home.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. I sure appreciate it when you do. It’s always a treat! See you again soon.

Technique Tuesday Release Day

Hi, gang!

It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday, and I’m sharing a few projects made with the new Calendar Builder stamp set.  (You’ll find the stamp set, as well as all the other new products, right here.)

This new stamp set is pretty cool because you can use it make all kinds of stamped calendars. There’s a huge stamp with the dates in the set, plus there are months, years and fun design elements. (I worked with Bev to put some examples and tips for using it so watch for the video she’ll put together with that stuff. It will be out in November. )

I created this calendar for a desk with the stamp set. Each page has a month stamped on it. I used the decorative elements in the set to mark holidays and important dates, plus add lines between the dates and month titles.

clipcalendar-teri

Not a fan of desk calendars? Another idea I have for the set is just making little month calendar pages that could either be hung with magnets on a fridge or placed in a photo frame. The calendar pages I created here use the calendar stamp set, plus artwork from other Technique Tuesday stamp sets.

cactuscalendar-teripoinsettiacalendar-teri

These calendars are a good way to use lots and lots of your stamps.

One other idea for the Calendar Builder set is to pair it with Technique Tuesday’s Story Card die. The calendar fits perfectly on it.

Alright! That’s it for me today. Be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the design team members who are sharing projects today as well. They’ve made some spectacularly cool projects to share with you.
