Two Cards! Two Cards Perfect for Summer!

Summer's here, and there's nothing more fun than a Summertime card! 

We've got two great cards to share with you today. Both were created with the Summer Adventure stamp set.

Up first is this snazzy number by Jill Dewey Hawkins

Life Is Sweet by Jill Dewey Hawkins for Technique Tuesday //

Don't you love that fun ice pop background? You can create a similar look by embossing the ice pop over and over with white embossing powder. Add a little color with markers or watercolors!

Not into the watercolor look? Well, check out this card Ashley Gray made!

Sunshiny Days by Ashley Gray for Technique Tuesday //

Want to make a card like it? Apply ink onto a card. Stamp the ice pop several times on cardstock. Color the ice pops in and then fussy cut them out and adhere them to your card.

Such fun cards! Have you made anything with the Summer Adventure stamp set? We've love to see it. Share it with us through Facebook or Instagram. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag.


PS. Memory keeper? Check out these journaling pages for Summer that Daniela Dobson made with the Summer Adventure stamp set. So cool! 



Story Card Sunday: Collect Moments

Hi everyone!

It's time for another installment of Story Card Sunday.

Follow along and I'll show you how to make a pocket page-friendly insert card like this.

Collect Moments handmade card from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comThis card would be perfect to use in a pocket page or a traditional scrapbook page. It would also look swell on a greeting card.

Start by cutting a base card with the Story Card dies. You'll also want to cut a dragonfly with the Dragonfly dies

Set the dragonfly on scratch paper. Pull out an assortment of markers and color on top. 

Steel dies from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comRemove the dragonfly from the scratch paper and you'll end up with something like this. (Not a dragonfly fan? Consider using Technique Tuesday's Happy Butterfly dies instead.)

Stamp a sentiment below the dragonfly. The one I used is from the Inspired Dragonfly stamp set.

Clear stamps and steel dies from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comUse a pen to draw a swirl from the dragonfly. Also add a few sequins or gems to embellish the card.
