Looking for some stamptastic inspiration? Well, friends, you are in for a treat! The talented Tonya Dirk is here, sharing with us some awesome projects made with Technique Tuesday products. Tonya is an incredible crafter with a fun, technique-friendly style, and we're so happy to have her here today!
First, let me introduce you to Tonya. Take it away, Tonya!
"My name is Tonya Dirk. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. Twenty two years ago I married my high school sweetheart and we have four kiddos ranging from 9-17. I’ve always been a crafty person, as a child I was happiest with coloring books and my Light Brite. My other artsy love, aside from making cards and scrapbook pages, is watercolor painting. When I am not being creative you can find me out on the tennis court, gardening, baking, hiking with my family, or hanging out in central Oregon with my family."
You'll find Tonya's work on her blog and on Instagram.
Are you ready for some awesome inspiration? On your mark. Get set. Check out what Tonya made!
(Grateful card by Tonya Dirk. Created with the Grateful steel dies and I Am Thankful stamp set.)
How fun is that wreath? And how cool is it that she placed the "grateful" word on top of it?! So cool!
Speaking of wreaths, check out the wreath she created on this card. Rather than using die-cuts, she created it with stamps! So, so fun!
(Grateful Leaves card by Tonya Dirk. Created with the I Am Thankful stamp set.)
(Giving Thanks card by Tonya Dirk. Created with the I Am Thankful and Planner - Thanks stamp sets.)
Can you believe those small images are from Technique Tuesday's Planner - Thanks stamp set?! While they look awesome in a planner, it's so neat to see them on a card. The way Tonya arranged them in groups of three with enamel dots makes them visually powerful!
(So Very Blessed card by Tonya Dirk. Created with the Grateful dies and So Very Blessed stamp set.)
What a fun way to use the leaf dies from Grateful! Rather than making an entire wreath, group some together and embellish them with a few enamel dots. Great idea!
(Completely Grateful card by Tonya Dirk. Created with the I Am Thankful stamp set and Grateful dies.)
Another fun idea from Tonya! She made the "grateful" word really stand out against her busy background by die-cutting the word twice and then layering the words together. The combination of the two different colors of cardstock really packs a lot of punch!
(Thankful for You card by Tonya Dirk. Made with the I Am Thankful stamp set.)
OK, friends! Say it with me, "Ooh la la!" Is that background paper cool or what?! And guess what?! Tonya made herself simply by stamping those Fall images and coloring them in.
A big thank you goes out to Tonya for letting us share these fun group of cards with you today!
Like Tonya's style? Come back on Thursday to see another fun batch of projects by her! Oh yes, friends! There's more! Hope to see you then!
