More Pretty Cards from Mary Dawn Quirindongo

Hi all!

Like pretty cards? We think you are going to love what we've got for you today.

We've got special guest Mary Dawn Quirindongo here one last time with two cards created with the Hyacinth stamp set. Get ready to be wowed!

Up first is this beauty!

How can you create a card like Mary Dawn's? Easy! You can do it with partial die-cutting. Take the flower die for the Hyacinth steel dies. Set it on cardstock. Cover it partially with a cutting plate. Run it through your die-cutting and you'll have a partial cut.

Use your scissors or a paper trimmer to cut a straight line from the top of the cut and from the bottom of the cut. Then you get to do the fun stuff: Stamp!

Greatest Blessing by Mary Dawn Quirindongo for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comMary Dawn used the partial die-cutting technique on this card as well!

She kept her card soft and sweet by heat embossing the flower with white embossing powder and then coloring it in. So pretty! And how about how the flowers are different shades of pink? It just really adds to the realism of her card. Bravo, bravo!

A big thanks to Mary Dawn for sharing her creativity with us and making so many wonderful projects with Technique Tuesday's clear stamps and steel dies. Thank you again, Mary Dawn!

A Friendly Card from Mary Dawn

Hi everyone!

Need to send a card to a buddy? How about one to your favorite chick? It's your lucky day! We've got special guest Mary Dawn Quirindongo back with a card perfect for that.

Mary Dawn Quirindongo

Check it out.

Favorite Chick card by Mary Dawn Quirindongo for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comTalk about a fun card to send a friend!

What a fun, out-of-the-box way to use the Chicks Rule stamp set. Rather than coloring all the chicks with traditional yellows and oranges, Mary Dawn threw caution to the wind by coloring two of them with pinks and purples.

To really tie her card together, she used the same colors to tint the banners hanging down from the panel of chicks. So great!

We'll be have Mary Dawn here again next Thursday with a couple more cards! In the meantime, don't miss this sneak peek she shared of another project she's made with Technique Tuesday's Chicks Rule stamp set!

Story Card Sunday: Best Highlight

Hello again!

It's time to learn how to make another pocket page-friendly Story Card with Technique Tuesday's clear stamps and steel dies.

Best Highlight Story Card from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comLet me show you how to make one like this to use in your scrapbooks.

Start by cutting a base card with Technique Tuesday's Story Card dies. Cut two stars, a "best" word and a "today" banner with the This Week's dies. You'll also want to use the "today" banner to cut an "a" and "t" in a different color. Use the Greatest dies to cut an arrow.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comAdhere the small die-cuts to the base card. Be sure to place the single letters inside the "today" banner. Stamp "highlight" with the Good Stuff stamp set below the die-cuts. Don't feel like using that word? There are plenty more to choose in the Good Stuff stamp set.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comTake the line stamp (also from Good Stuff). Place it on a stamping block and stamp several journaling lines.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comWhen you are finished stamping, you'll end up with something like this.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comWant to make your Story Card a little more fancy, add a couple gems to the stars and arrow.

I'll be back again next Sunday to show you how to make another Story Card. Hope to see you then!

A Chick Card by Tobi!

This card by Tobi Crawford? You just might say it's our kind of card!

Chicks Rule handmade card by Tobi Crawford for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comTalk about fun! Imagine giving this card to a favorite girlfriend!
Tobi created it with the Chicks Rule stamp set and Postage Card steel dies.

Chicks Rule clear stamp set from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comTo make the chicks pop, she stamped them onto her background paper and then stamped them a second time on another piece of paper. She colored their bodies in, fussy cut them and then adhered them to her card with a little foam adhesive. That's a great way to give them a little more dimension!
