Loves Me, Loves Me Not, Loves Me...

There are cards, and there are cards that make us smile big.

This card from Tanis Giesbrecht is one of those "make us smile big" ones.

Tanis created it with the help of our Daisy - Greenhouse Society stamp set.

New Product Spotlight: A Little Fruity

A big old "Cherry-O!" to all of you out there!

Here's a stamp set that might make you say, "Oh, how berry sweet!"

A Little Fruity
is one of the new stamp sets from our Summer 2013 product release, and I'm excited to highlight it today.

Technique Tuesday offered a class a few years with this set being used in it. The TT crew loved it so much that they decided to bring it back and make the stamp set available for purchase as part of this latest release.

This is such a fun set for seeing how different crafters have their way with it. Check out these cards from Birgit, Tanis and Mendi!

All three of these cards are so neat and so different!

And something new for this release is Technique Tuesday also released some digital cut files to coordinate with the stamp set.

What's a digital cut file, you ask? It's something that works with a digital die-cutting machine. You purchase it, download it and save it onto your computer and then use it cut out shapes to stamp on and layer together.

(By the way, if you'd like to know more about how digital cut files work, check out the FAQ page on the Technique Tuesday Web site. Also, Technique Tuesday has even more digital cut files than this one. Go here to see them all.)

I used the A Little Fruity digital cut files and stamp set to make these two cards here.

I sure love the layered look you can give the fruit with the cut files!2_Fruity_Pear1_teri_edited-1Want to see more of Technique Tuesday's Summer release? The Summer release begins shipping in early to mid August.

Ali recently played with this stamp set while getting ready to head out of town.
