Springing Into Spring with Tobi

Hooray for the first day of Spring!

And hooray for pretty flower cards like this beauty from Tobi Crawford.

Ooh la la!

Tobi stamped the flowers (from the Chrysanthemum - Greenhouse Society stamp set) with watermark ink and then dusted them with color. 

She created the custom sentiment by mixing together a couple words from the set.

Story Card Sunday: The Details & Memories

Hello again!

It's Story Card Sunday, and I've got another pocket page-friendly Story Card to share with you.

1_scs_24_thedetails

Not a pocket page scrapbooker? That's OK! This Story Card would also work well on a traditional scrapbook page.

Let me show you how to make one like it.

Start by cutting two base cards with Technique Tuesday's Story Card DIY steel die

Scs_24_1

Cut one frame with the Hi Banner Card steel die.

Scs_24_2

Anchor the frame to one of the base cards. Adhere. Set it aside.

Scs_24_3

Take the second base card and stamp journaling lines on it.

Scs_24_4

I'm using lines from Technique Tuesday's Travel Log stamp set.

Adhere the first card onto the stamped base card at an angle.

Scs_24_6

Trim away the excess. You'll end up with something like this.

Scs_24_7

Finish the card off with a sentiment and a few embellishments. (The words I used are also from the Travel Log stamp set.)

1_scs_24_thedetails

By the way, as I made this Story Card, I made a second one just like it. I just used some different paper and a different word.

1_scs_24_memories

Fun, huh?!

I hope to see you again next Sunday!

Green Week: A Happy Card

It is the last day of Green Week, and we are finishing of the fun with a happy card from Ashley Harris!

TTGreen

It is happy indeed!

This card may look simple but Ashley completed it by doing quite a bit of die-cutting and stamping.

The notebook paper is completely handmade! Yep. That's right! She die-cut a white piece of cardstock with our Memo Pad Card steel die. Then she stamped the lines with our College Ruled stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-College-Ruled-Clear-Stamps-Medium

Boy, I love how it looks!

She created the sentiment by die-cutting the word "happy" with our Say It - Happy steel die. She added some additional words with the coordinating Say It - Happy stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-Say-It-Happy-Clear-Stamps-Medium

High 5 on a fantastic card, Ashley!

Green Week: Celebrate Spring

Hooray for Fridays, and hooray for cool cards like this one from Daniela Dobson!

Celebrate spring by Daniela Dobson

How pretty is all that green? I must admit that I just love all the different shades of green she used.

Daniela created the sentiment on her card by stamping a phrase from our Seasons by Ali Edwards stamp set with green ink on white cardstock and then cutting it out with scissors.

Technique-Tuesday-Seasons-Ali-Edwards-Clear-Stamps-Medium

If you look really close, you'll see half of a grid card underneath the sentiment. She made it by pairing Technique Tuesday's Grid stamp with our Story Card steel die

Celebrate spring close by Daniela Dobson

Looking good, Daniela!

We will be back Saturday with one last project for Green Week! Hope to see you then.

I just love the green flag Tobi created by pairing together our Flags Are Flying stamp set with our Flags are Flying DIY Steel Dies.

Technique-Tuesday-Flags-Are-Flying-Clear-Stamps-Medium

She die-cut the flag and then stamped the flag images on top. She finished it off by wrapping the stamped flag around a toothpick! So cool!

Join us again on Friday for one more inspiring green project.

On your mark. Get set. Take a look!

TechniqueTuesdaySuperGoodcardbyTanisGiesbrecht

Tanis created the cool look here by stamping the polka dots (from Technique Tuesday's Lots of Dots stamp set) with two different shades of green on her card base. And she even stamped a few polka dots on the star!

Technique-Tuesday-Lots-Of-Dots-Clear-Stamps-Medium

This poster can't tell a lie: I sorta kinda love all the polka dots Tanis put on her card! They are just so fun!

Tanis completed her card by stamping a phrase in green... of course! The sentiment she used is from our Rah Rah Sentiments stamp set

Technique-Tuesday-Rah-Rah-Sentiments-Clear-Stamps-Medium

Nicely done, Tanis!

We'll be back on Thursday with another fun Green Week project!

Green Week: A Box of Candy Gold

Day 2 of Green Week is here, and we've got a box of goodies from Laura O'Donnell to share with you!

Check. This. Out.

TTgoodluck

Fun, huh?

Laura turned a die-cut French Fry box into the most adorable treat box for St. Patrick's Day. She filled it up with gold coin candies and gems and then decorated the box with our Good Luck Seal stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-Good-Luck-Seal-Clear-Stamps-Medium

I just love how she cut out the center of the Good Luck Seal and replaced it with a stamped clover. So, so fun!

Speaking of our Good Luck Seal stamp set, would you like to win one to call your very own? Just a leave a comment on this blog post by midnight EST on Thursday, March 13th. I'll pick one of you to a Good Luck Seal stamp set.

Green Week: A Card From the Heart

Hi all!

With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, it seems like a good time to celebrate with lots of green projects. We'll be sharing a green project every day this week here on the Technique Tuesday blog.

So let's get things started with one totally sweet, totally fantastic card from Linda Barber!

TT.greencard.1

Who would have thought hearts would look good in green? But Linda sure did a great job putting these guys together! 

Linda created her hearts by die-cutting several patterned papers with two of our DIY Steel Dies: Nested Hearts and Heart Card. Then she stacked things together to make the hearts.

TT.greencard.2

What's so cool is that even though the hearts use many of the same die-cut elements, they look totally unique because she used so many different patterned papers. Way to go, Linda!

Turn in tomorrow for another fantastic Green Week project!
