For the Moms

They were there when you are an itty bitty baby.

They are there when you headed to school for the very first time as a child.

And they are there for you now when you need a hug or a sounding board, just to make it through the day.

They are our mothers.

And, today, we are celebrating them with some super cards our Creative Team made just for the moms out there. Take it away, ladies.

The "Be Kind to the Earth" Type of Crafting

It is Earth Day, and we have got an Earth-friendly project from Laura O'Donnell to share with you today.

In honor of Earth Day, Laura recycled a coffee sleeve and used it to the make the house. She flattened the sleeve and then die-cut it into the house shape with a die from Sizzix.

She completed her scene with images and words from Technique Tuesday's One of a Kind stamp set.

(Re)Introducing Irony

Ten years of Technique Tuesday means a year-long party!

And to celebrate the anniversary, we are bringing back some of our popular products from the past throughout 2013. (So far, we've brought back Adored by Ali Edwards, Hash Tags & More, and Petal Power.)

And we are happy to share with you the latest addition (or re-introduction) to our line-up: Irony.

Technique-Tuesday-Irony-Clear-Stamps-Medium

This "fresh from the vault" clear set makes consists of 10 clear stamps on a 3" x 4" storage sheet.

These stamps look fabulous when used on their own as single stamped elements on paper crafting, memory keeping and home decor projects or when stamped together multiple times to make pretty patterns. We think you'll find this set to be handy for making cards, tags and scrapbook pages.

Irony is on sale now through our Web site and through some retailers. Check with your favorite retailer to see if they have it in stock or to ask them to get it in.

In honor the Irony's return, we've got some fantastic projects our Creative Team has made with stamp set.

On your mark. Get set. Grab your party horns. Ok. Just kidding! Take it away, team!
