A Challenge with Flair

Yep. It's true. We always love a good challenge at Technique Tuesday.

So we recently tossed one out to our Creative Team. We challenged them to make something with one of our new Flair stamp sets: Baby Flair by Ali Edwards; Travel With Flair by Ali Edwards; or Joy Flair by Ali Edwards.

These stamp sets are quickly becoming a fan favorite. And, if you are new to Technique Tuesday, you may not know the circles in all of our Flair stamp sets are sized to work with a 1" circle punch. Whether the stamp set is designed by Ali or by Bev, Lori or Teri, the Flair sets work with the punch.

So here's a look at the "Flair-iffic" projects our team came up with! Take it away, gang!

PS. Teri was over on the blog for Simon Says Stamp! a few weeks back, sharing some tips for using some of our other Flair-style stamp sets. She's got a fun tutorial over there, too.



A Sweet Card from Lori Vliegen

It is always fun to see how an artist uses the stamps she designed.

And we sure love this card Lori Vliegen made with her Chickadees stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

That little chickadee is so cute!

Head to Lori's blog to see how she made her card. And be sure to leave a comment for Lori on her blog because she's also giving away two of her Chickadees stamp sets!

A Must See Card from Tobi

There are cards. And then there are CARDS!

This pretty number from Tobi Crawford is one of the latter.

Tobi_Amazing
Neat, huh?

Tobi created the tile accent on this card with the Woodland Inspirations stamp set.

She stamped the birds on white cardstock with yellow ink and stamped the words on top with black ink.

Nicely done, Tobi!
