Story Card Sunday: Hi Flower

Hi all!

It's time for another installment of Story Card Sunday.

Hi Flower Story Card from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comThis week's Story Card would look great on a greeting card. It would also work in a pocket page or on a traditional scrapbook page. Let me show you how to make one like it.

Story Card Sunday Tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comStart by cutting a base card with the Story Card dies. You'll also want to cut a flower with the Love Flower steel dies and a couple letters with the Home Town Lowercase Alphabet dies. (Want your letters to really pop? Cut them from craft foam rather than cardstock.)

Adhere the flower and letters to the Story Card. Use them plain or add a little extra detail by spritzing the Story Card with spray mist or sponging ink along the edges of the Story Card.

Tie a twine through a button and adhere it to the Story Card.

In Need of Stamping Inspiration? Jill Has Got You Covered!

Jill HawkinsOn your mark. Get set. Get ready to be inspired. Up first is this beauty!

With Love by Jill Hawkins for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com(With Love by Jill Hawkins. Created with the Sending Smiles stamp set and Heart Strings and Memo Pad Card dies.)

Ooh la la! This card just screams fun. Don't you love all the fun elements? Jill created lots of movement by cutting several strings of hearts with the Heart Strings dies and arranging them together. To make them a little more interesting, she decorated some of them with different colors of hearts.

With Love by Jill Hawkins for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

So fun! And speaking of fun, here's one more card from Jill.

The Struggle by Jill Hawkins for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com(The Struggle by Jill Hawkins. Created with Say What and Measure Up stamp sets and Clipboard steel dies.)

Sometimes, you want to encourage someone to keep up the good work. This card would be a good one for that. 

Look really close at Jill's red background paper. Is it a printed paper? Nope. She created it herself by stamping the rulers from the Measure Up stamp set over and over again. Great idea!

The Struggle by Jill Hawkins for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comAnd what a fun touch! She made the stamped sentiment pop by adding a die-cut star to it. Well done, Jill! Well done!

Stop by the blog again next Thursday to see two more cards she made with Technique Tuesday's products. Hope to see you then!

A Pretty Handmade Card from Daniela

Looking for some inspiration for the next card you make? Check out this beauty by Daniela Dobson.

Handmade card by Daniela Dobson for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

How pretty! Daniela has such a knack of mixing together different products and design elements in a pleasing way! 

Check out those number tabs to the left of the butterfly. Pre-made? Nope. She made them with the Today Tabs stamp set. She simply stamped the tabs on cardstock and then used her scissors to fussy cut them. Then she used them just like any decoration on a card or scrapbook page. 

And how about butterfly?! Rather than cutting the Hello Butterfly from plain old cardstock, Daniela cut it from patterned paper. This is a great way to add a little visual interest to a project.

Story Card Sunday: Golden Butterfly

Hi everyone! 

It is Sunday, which means we've got another Story Card Sunday tutorial for you. If you like bling or butterflies, you are going to love this week's card.

Golden Butterfly Story Card from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comIt was easy to make with Technique Tuesday's clear stamps and steel dies. Let me show you how you can make one like it.

Start by cutting a base card with the Memo Pad Card dies and a large circle from the Circles dies. You'll also want to cut a butterfly with the Hello Butterfly dies from toner paper

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comNow it's time to make the butterfly shine. Set heat-sensitive foil on top of it. Run it through a laminator machine. You'll end up with something like this.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comDon't have any toner paper? Consider using a glitter or metallic paper instead.

Place the butterfly on the circle. 

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comRandomly place gold string or thread behind the circle. 

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comAdhere the circle to the base card.

Stamp a sentiment. I'm using a sentiment from the Today Tabs stamp set.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comComplete the Story Card by adding a few gems or sequins to it!
