Stamp spotlight: Petal Power

We are shining the spotlight today on one of our newest stamp sets: Petal Power.

Technique-Tuesday-Petal-Power-Clear-Stamps-MediumNow some of you might think that it is not a new set. Believe it or not, it is!

As part of the 10-year anniversary of Technique Tuesday, we are bringng back some of the most popular products of the last 10 years. This set is a new version of our classic "Loves Me, Loves Not" and "Loves Me Still" sets.

We chose some of our favorite petals from those sets and included them in Petal Power. We've also added a few new petals. And we've resized the petals  a bit so they fit nicely on greeting cards, but still make a statement on layouts and home decor projects.

In honor of Petal Power, here's our Creative Team with some sweet projects made with it!

An "Eggs-cellent" Photo Inspiration Challenge

We at Technique Tuesday love a good challenge!

And, so with Easter almost here, we tossed out this Easter-themed photo and asked our Creative Team to make something inspired by it.

2Picture_EggBasket
We think you'll find the results to be quite "eggs-cellent"!

IMGP2999Tobi Crawford drew color inspiration from the Easter eggs. She completed all the stamping with our Banner Up stamp set.

Happy easter tag by Daniela Dobson
Happy easter tag close by Daniela Dobson
Daniela Dobson created this Easter tag, inspired by the Easter theme of the photograph. She used three Technique Tuesday stamp sets: Easter Seal; Seal Companion - Winner and Studio AE - Beauty of Spring by Ali Edwards - March 2012.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TT_Cards_Char_SunBasket
Charlene Austin took literal inspiration from the photo, creating her very own basket from cardstock for her card. She made her flowers with our Technique Tiles - Scalloped Circles. She used watercolor crayons to give each flower a little bit of color. She finished her card off with a sentiment from the Bring on the Sun by Ali Edwards stamp set.

What fun card by Laura O'Donnell! Laura took color inspiration from the photo for her card. She created this sweet scene with the Happyville - Cars stamp set.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2_TT_SimplifyPastel_t
Teri created a pastel-themed card, inspired by the colors of the Easter eggs in the photo. She used two of our stamp sets: Simplify by Lori Vliegen and Say It With Circles.

Nice work, ladies!

Memory Keeping with Ashley

One of the things I love about scrapbooking is documenting the things I admire most about the people I love.

There's just something about putting that down in my scrapbooks so that one day they'll open them up and read just how how much I look up to them.

Today, we've got Ashley Harris here with a scrapbook page she made that does just that.

TT_Ash_layout
"Andrew is such an amazing big brother. I really wanted to highlight this special quality about him. I think this photo did just that and was a perfect fit."

Ashley created the banner with by stamping flags from the Banner Up stamp set, cutting them out and then hanging them on twine.

Technique-Tuesday-Banner-Up-Clear-Stamps-MediumShe created a second design element for her layout by stamping one of the arrows from the Seriously Rad stamp set on cardstock and then cutting it out. To give it extra pop, she adhered it onto her layout with foam adhesive.

Thanks for sharing your page today, Ashley!

Stamps + Photos = A Banner from Jaclyn

Here's a clever idea for using the This Story by Ali Edwards stamp set: Make a banner with it!

Tagbanner
Jaclyn Miller created this fun banner by combining twine, pictures and stamps from the This Story by Ali Edwards (March's Studio AE) stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-This-Story-Ali-Edwards-Clear-Stamps-LargeWe particularly like how she embellished this picture here with a panel stamped with the set's "Hello Memory" stamp. Check out how she used a yellow pen to add a little extra color to the panel! Very nice!
