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.
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.
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.
I’m back with a couple more cards to share that features some new products for November for Technique Tuesday. Their new release of stamps and cutting dies goes live right here tomorrow.
Meet card no. 1.
This guy features the new Perfect Poinsettia stamp set and matching dies.
I think this stamp set really is pretty. I just love the big Poinsettia in it. It’s so wide open and so easy to color with markers. I colored the one of my card with markers and then added a little extra shading with pencils. Once I did all the coloring, I added a hit of glitter to the center of the flower. It’s subtle, but it is there.
This second card features the new Hello Winter stamp set. What a fun stamp set it is.
It features a bunch of Winter-themed images, as well as some fun phrases. The stamp set was designed with scrapbookers in mind, but it is a set that is equally card friendly. I felt like everything in it could easily be used to make cards and scrapbook pages.
Alright, kids. That is what I have for you today. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for a look at all the new products, plus you’ll find links to all the Design Team members, who are sharing projects on their blog today as well. Woohoo for cool new projects… and stamps and dies too. 😉
Technique Tuesday is gearing up for their November 1st release of stamps and dies, and the design team is joining the fun today by sharing some cards they’ve made with the new goods.
I’ve got a couple cards to show you today.
This first card features the new Christmas Cocoa stamp set.
To give the cocoa cups a little sparkle, I added a light dusting chunky glitter. I also “grounded” the cups by sponging a little black ink below them. It’s an easy thing to, and it adds so much.
Card number 2 also features the Christmas Cocoa stamp set.
To create this card, I stamped the cocoa cup with a light kraft ink onto the panel several times. I also stamped the little hearts. Then I stamped the cocoa cup on white cardstock, colored it in with markers and fussy cut it out with my scissors. (There are no matching dies for this stamp set, but the images are easy to cut with your scissors.) I completed the cocoa cup by adding a sprinkling of glitter to it as well. It’s all in the whip. 😉
I finished the card by adding the sentiment (which could make this image pass for a peppermint mocha too) and a few sequins.
Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday blog for a full look at this stamp set and some other products they are releasing on the 1st. All the new products will be available on Nov. 1st on their website.
You’ll also want to check out the blogs of my Design Team pals, who are sharing projects they’ve created with the new goods. You’ll find links to all their blogs on the Technique Tuesday blog.
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.

I’m back… back again… with a couple more projects created with products from the October release from Technique Tuesday.
Today’s projects feature the new Bow on the Border die, which like all the new goods will be available here on the 1st.
This new die has a lot of awesomeness about it. It works with a standard A2 card, plus you can use it to make Christmas cards like this.
Here I just cut a border into a card with it. Then I cut it out again from a piece of red cardstock and used the inner pieces on my card.
I also paired the border with a sentiment from the previously released Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set.
You can also use this die easily to make cards for other occasions, like birthdays!
So here, I just cut the border into my card, added some patterned paper strips behind it and added a birthday sentiment (from the Lovely Lavender set).
Yep. I also didn’t bother adding the insides of the bow back to the card. Here’s why: I didn’t feel like it. (Wink!) Plus I actually thought the strips of patterned paper looked quite lovely peeking out from the inside of the card.
Alright. That’s it for me. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other design team members sharing projects today. They are going to KNOCK your socks off. Trust me.
Be back again tomorrow.
