I’m happy to be blog hoppity hopping today with the Design Team from Technique Tuesday!
Technique Tuesday released some Christmas stamps and dies in August and September and we’re celebrating by sharing some projects made with them. We are also celebrating that they will be releasing even more Christmas stamps and dies over the next few months. (Hint: Lights! Hint: Cocoa! And more! I totally said too much. Let’s keep that between you and me! But know that I cannot wait for you to see what TT has up their sleeves!)
First, let me give you the hop list.
Now, let me show you the projects!
I’ve been dying to share this first project for someone time.
The sweet little guy is on it is my friends’ little fella, who celebrated his first Christmas last year.
Is he just the cutest reindeer? Makes my heart smile! 🙂
I used a few different Technique Tuesday products to decorate this page. First, I used the new Story of December set to add the date to it and to create that Story of December label you see. And then I used some previously released stamp sets to do the rest of the stamping: Classic Christmas Sentiments and Spirit of December. I also used the Ribbon & Holly dies to add the ribbon and holly leaves to the page. I just love the ribbon and holly berry. They look so cool when cut from glitter paper.
Now I didn’t use the December Moments set to stamp anything on the page, but the sentiments in that set would have worked perfect on my labels too. That set is packed with good scrapbooking stamps.
Now, here’s my second project.
For this little Christmas card, I created one big sentiment by combining phrases from the December Moments and Christmas Birds stamp sets.
The little birds and presents were also stamped with the Christmas Birds set. They were cut with the matching crafting dies. Now there’s no tree in the stamp set but there’s a little piece of greenery in the Spirit of December set that makes a good substitute tree… and is sized as such that (just a happy coincidence) it works with the birds. Yay for happy coincidences!
Alright! That’s all I have!
This is, officially, the last design team stop on the hop! If you haven’t already hit the Technique Tuesday blog, please do so. You’ll find the complete hop list there, plus you will want to comment on their post, as well as the this post and the rest of the DT’s posts, as there is a Technique Tuesday gift certificate up for grabs for a lucky someone who leaves a comment on one of the posts. Comments will be taken until midnight on the 20th! The winner will be announced on the 22nd on the Technique Tuesday blog.
Thanks for stopping… and hopping… on by! I always appreciate it when you do, friends. Thank you.
