We'll be back with a few more sneak peeks at the August release tomorrow. And we will begin full reveals of our products on Monday with our design team, who will be joining us to share some projects they've been making with the new goods!

5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse, plus Free Card Sketches

Hi, friends!

Looking for some inspiration for the Simon & Sandy Seahorse stamp set?

Haven't seen the set yet? These animal stamps are sure to make you smile. With two large seahorses, plus a small starfish, baby seahorse and tiny jellyfish, you can make all kinds of stamped scenes. Plus you make handmade cards appropriate for a number of occasions with the nine sentiment stamps included in the set.

Here are five creative ways to use the stamps, courtesy of the Technique Tuesday Design Team. (Want a better look at these projects? Click on the photos to see them on our website.)

5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Use watercolors to paint a background for seahorses (and their friends) to swim in. Kick your scene up a notch by adding some drops of "water" with Glossy Accents. Don't have any Glossy Accents? Use enamel dots, pearls or gems instead.

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


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Stamp an underwater scene with the stamps... and resist adding any color with markers or pencils. Say what?! I know, it's hard not to add any color! Instead take a cue from Jill! Use the Bubbles on the Border die to add a border and some circles cut from a number of different cardstocks to the scene. 

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


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Make a shaker card! Matching dies typically are used so folks can cut mats to stamp on. Kymona Tracey's got a clever idea. Make a shaker instead! Use the matching mat die to cut a window for a shaker card and stamp a seahorse in the window! Consider filling your shaker with sequins, beads and, even, sand. 

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


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.com

Make a wild underwater scene with by stamping a seahorse and lots of Simon & Sandy's friends onto cardstock. Be sure to use a waterproof ink so you can color in your critters with watercolors. Not sure if your ink pad is waterproof? Test it out on scratch paper first! 

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


5 Ideas for Simon & Sandy Seahorse from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.comUse Simon and Sally with their mat dies. Stamp your images on cardstock. Color them in and then cut them out with the mats. You can give them extra dimension and make them look like they are popping off the card by adhering them to it with foam tape

Animal Stamp Sets from Technique Tuesday



Don’t miss out on this chance to win your favorite animal stamp set!

Remember standing in the pet store and wanting to adopt some cute little critter so much? When I was a kid we adopted several cats (I think I named at least 2 of them Twinkie) and later a dog (who was a beagle named Snoopy). Those pets worked out reasonably well. But sometimes the desire to adopt an animal isn't quite so logical. I remember one year I went off to camp and fell in love with owls. There were several summers I was sure my life would not be complete if I didn't own a horse. And I'm pretty sure I coveted my best friend's turtle even though it really did stink.
 
For all of us who haven't been able to adopt the critters that our hearts desired, there is some good news today. This week we are having the first ever animal adoption drive right here at Technique Tuesday. And there are so many animals to choose from! Ever want to have your own lion? Check out Leo. Would you like to have a goat but without having to muck out the barn? You are going to want to look for Gertie and Garth the Goats. And who can resist June the Giraffe? Starting today, you can enter for a chance win one of our Animal House stamp sets. Here's how: 
  1. Choose your favorite  animal stamp set from all the critter stamps on our website.
  2. Leave the name of your favorite animal stamps in a comment here between now and June 29th.
 We will announce a winner here on our blog on July 1st. It's that easy to adopt the animal of your dreams!

New Video: Masking Magic in 3 Easy Steps!

Hey, everyone!

Bev here today with a new stamping tutorial!

This tutorial is a bit unusual! Usually masking tutorials feature a pretty flower or a cuddly bear. Not today… I decided this masking tutorial should feature a bale of hay. Kinda weird, right? Anyway, I hope you will watch the video to see how I transformed that bale of hay into a pile of hay bales across several cards. Plus you’ll also learn how you can use these 3 easy steps with flowers and cuddly animal stamps too!

A Card to Say Hay!

Hi, friends!

Teri here today with a card for a friend!

One of my top goals in 2018 is to send more handmade cards to my friends. There's nothing quite sending a card in the mail to let a friend know you care about them!

To keep on top of my goal, I made this card the other day with a couple of Technique Tuesday's Animal House critters, the duck and goose from Duck Swan Goose

Hay There Duck Card by Teri Anderson | TechniqueTuesday.com

Scene making is one of my favorite techniques when it comes to stamping. I love pairing together different critters. There's something about making them look like they are having fun hanging out together that really makes me smile! 

I rounded out my scene by adding a bale of hay and a fence stamped and cut with the Funny Farm stamps and dies. The Funny Farm products are great because they work well with all the farm animal stamps Technique Tuesday has released in recent months. Scenes with cows, horses, pigs and, now, birds can all be easily paired with them. 


Hay There Duck Card by Teri Anderson | TechniqueTuesday.com

To make the card's stamped images stand out, I colored them in with markers. You'll notice I added a few dots to the duck. I think the dots just give him a little extra personality! I also added a few puffy heart stickers and some enamel dots in my design to help draw attention to the animals.  

Can we talk about the sentiment for a minute? I used the new Hay Neighbor stamp set for the sentiment on the label, which was cut with the Jam Jar Labels dies. Since I wanted this card to have a barn feel, I rolled up some jute and strategically placed it behind the label, letting a little bit peek out. Thinking about doing something like that on a card? Be sure to use foam tape to adhere it to your card. That will help keep the label from warping.

I'd love to hear from you! When is the last time you sent a friend a handmade card? I'd love to see it! Share a link to your card in the comments so I can take a peek!

PS. Did you know you can get the Hay Neighbor stamp set for free this month? Animal House members will get it for free with their June shipment! Not a member yet? Join the club in June 2018 and you'll get it for free with your first auto-shipment. Learn more about the benefits of joining here.
