I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today.
I’m super excited to be over there, sharing a quick and easy way to embellish patterned paper with…. stencils, glitter and the Dual Tip Glue Pen. It’s such an easy to add a little bit of glitz and shimmer to papers.
Be sure to check out the post.
Be back again later, gators.
It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday. I’m here to show you a couple new projects today that feature the new Bubbles on the Border die, plus some of the other new stamps.
So let’s do this. Meet card no. 1.
I used the border die to add the bubbly border to the top of my card. And then I took a few of the circles to add “bubbles” to my scene, which was created with the new Simon & Sandy Seahorse stamp set and dies.
You’ll see I also added a few clear bubbles to the scene. Added those bad boys with Glossy Accents. 😉
And meet card no. 2.
For this one, I created a bubbly background of sorts by cutting the border out of three pieces of cardstock and then layering them together. It’s so not how TT intended to use these dies, but I’m one who likes to go against the grain sometimes when it comes to paper craft stuff. I think it turned out pretty fun actually.
Alright! So that’s what I have for you. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. And be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday website to see all the new goods.
Thanks for stopping by!
Back again to share another Technique Tuesday project as TT gears up for their new release on Sunday.
Today’s card features new Happy Hydrangea stamp set and dies from their Greenhouse Society collection.
This is a really pretty stamp set. It includes some little flowers that you can stamp elsewhere on your card, or you can stamp again and add to the bigger bloom.
It has an interesting effect on the bigger grouping of flowers.
Just for show, here’s how the big bloom looks without the little flowers.
And here’s how it looks with them.
The cool thing is there is no real rhyme or reason to the little flowers so you can basically get away with placing as many or as few as you want… and wherever you want them.
Alrighty. That’s all I have for today. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see the products being revealed today and to see whoelse from the design team is sharing projects today.
Also be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday website to see all (and snag) all the new products.
July 1st is almost here, and Technique Tuesday is gearing up for the new release with their new release countdown.
I’m tickled to bring you a couple cards today created with the new Bugs & Kisses stamp set.
Meet card No. 1.
This little stamp set is just a stamp set. There are no dies for it at this time. Don’t let that deter you. The images are super easy to cut out with your scissors… or look good on paper, just stamped right onto your paper.
I really wanted the bugs to stand out on this card so I stamped them onto white cardstock, colored them in with markers and then cut them out with my scissors. You’ll see I also stamped a few of them a second time right onto the card. (I didn’t want to mess with cutting out the one bug’s tiny lines.)
And meet card no. 2.
I did the same thing with this card, stamping the bugs on cardstock and fussy cutting them out with my scissors. Again, didn’t want to mess with the tiny parts so I stamped the bugs again onto my card. To make their bodies pop, I adhered them to my card with foam squares. Perfect for giving a little pop!
Alright! That’s what I have for you.
You’ll find this stamp set (and the rest of the new release from Technique Tuesday) here on July 1st.
And you’ll find links to all the other TT design team members sharing projects today on the Technique Tuesday blog. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created! Such a talented bunch of ladies!
Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
Just wanted to give you the heads up to check out the Technique Tuesday blog over the next few days. There’s a giveaway going on where you can win a one of Technique Tuesday’s Animal House stamp sets. Simply pick a favorite animal from their Animal House collection and then leave a comment on Technique Tuesday’s blog, telling them which animal is your favorite.
I’ve really enjoyed working with the Animal House stamps since they debuted about a year and a half ago. TT releases a new animal every month.
Here are a couple of my favorite cards I’ve made with the Animal House stamps.
This one uses June the Giraffe.
And this one uses the Turtle Trio.
And this little canvas, which I gave to a friend, uses Clementine the Cow, the Chicken Family and Gertie and Garth Goat.
Anyway, don’t forget to pop on over to the Technique Tuesday blog!
It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday and I’m excited to share with you a couple new projects created with the Berry Basket dies (and some of the other new products).
This first card is a simple card created with the dies, as well as the Sweet Summertime stamps and dies, Cool and Sweet Words dies and Jam Jar Labels dies.
I first created the basket first and then I added the stamped and die-cut fruit to it.
The sentiment was created by combining together words from the Sweet Summertime stamp set with a die-cut word from the Cool & Sweet Words dies.
The second project I’m sharing today uses the Berry Basket dies in a non-traditional way. I made a pocket with them for a gift card and added the basket to a tag.
I really wanted to use the sentiment (from the Silly Fruits stamp set) on the basket so I used stamped and die-cut a couple pineapples from the Sweet Summertime set to tuck into the basket as well. I think it turned out fun!
Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. You’ll also want to check out the New Products page on the Technique Tuesday website to see all the new goods.
Be back again later, gators.
I’m back to share a couple more stamped cards made with some of the new products Technique Tuesday will release on June 1st.
Meet card no. 1.
This first one uses the new Funny Fruits stamps and dies. I also used the new Jam Jar Labels dies to create a label to stamp the sentiment (from the stamp set) onto.
I just had fun with this one, stamping the fruit and then giving some of them stamped faces. I colored them in with markers (although, I did use a white gel pen to color in the mouths of the ones with open mouths).
And meet card no. 2.
This is just a simple little card created with the Duck Swan Goose stamp set and coordinating dies. Yes, the bugs are part of the set too!
I just did some simple coloring with markers and created the little scene.
The label the words are stamped on? Yep. It once again was cut with the Jam Jar Labels dies. Such a good, practical label shape.
Alrighty. That’s all I have. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other design team members sharing projects today. And be sure to stop by Technique Tuesday’s New Products page on June 1st to snag all the new goods that “need” to come home with you. 😉
