Color a Carnation with Teri's Video Tips

Clear stamps and steel dies from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comSeveral Technique Tuesday team members have been playing with this month's Greenhouse Society stamp set, Carnation Friends. Julie colored the image using basic markers, Tam used our watercolor crayons, and Teri added color with Copic markers. They all report the slightly thicker lines and open space in this stamp set make it easy to use, even for those who aren't coloring experts. Yet it is sophisticated enough to delight the most experienced artist.

In this video, Teri demonstrates how she used Copic markers to color the carnation. Since carnations come in so many shades, make the flower in your friend's favorite color. Then add your favorite sentiment to create a beautiful card for your bestie!

A DIY Canning Jar Gift to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Hi everyone!

Teri here, and I've got a fun project for you today from Technique Tuesday's Julie Chaddock!

Julie came up with the perfect Valentine's Day gift for a friend. What's that, you ask? Well, friends check this out.

Zombies-Cupcake-DIY-Canning-Jar-Valentines-Friendship-Hearts-Julie-C-Technique-TuesdayYep! A canning jar filled with goodies!

It's easy to make one like Julie's. Start with a wide rimmed canning jar. Put a layer of candy at the bottom and then add a cupcake on top!

Decorate the top of the jar with a little ribbon and then add a stamped tag to the jar.

Zombies-Cupcake-DIY-Canning-Jar-Close-2-Valentines-Friendship-Hearts-Julie-C-Technique-TuesdayJulie created her tag from cardstock. She stamped the jar from the Meant to Be stamp set and added a little color to it. The words are from the You Aren't Normal clear stamp set. She finished off tag with some hearts cut with the Charming Hearts DIY Steel Dies. Easy peasy!

Such a fun idea! Inspired to make a jar like Julie's? Share it with us through our Facebook page and on Instagram. Be sure to use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag.


Two Valentine's Cards = Two Ways to Use the Charming Hearts Dies!

Hi everyone!

Teri here, and I'm excited to share with you a couple love-themed cards created with Technique Tuesday's Charming Hearts DIY Steel Dies. These cards would be great to give for Valentine's Day or on an anniversary, or even when you randomly just want to let someone you care about know you are thinking of them!

The Charming Hearts dies are super cute with hearts incorporated into each shape. There are charms, tags and banners! Oh, how fun they are!

Charming-Hearts-Charms-Tags-Fresh-Cut-Studio-DIY-Steel-Dies-Technique-TuesdayI used the dies in a very traditional way to make this first card by making some banners. I just love banners!

Youre-OK-I-Guess-Handmade-Card-Love-Valentines-Banners-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayI adhered each of the banners to my card and then poked holes to stitch twine through them. This helped to make them look like they were hanging!

Youre-OK-I-Guess-Handmade-Card-Close-Love-Valentines-Banners-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayYou''ll notice I filled in some of the banners with hearts! I used the hearts left over from when I cut the banners out. 

I did something different with my second card. I created the design by taking several of the charms and arranging them together in a grid pattern.

Normal-Heart-Charms-Handmade-Card-Valentines-Love-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayI filled some of the charms with hearts. And to make the hearts pop, I applied glitter glue to some of them. Glitter glue is a great way to give a card bit of glitz without a lot of bulk!

Normal-Heart-Charms-Handmade-Card-Close-Valentines-Love-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayYou might be wondering about the sentiments on these cards. They both came from the You Aren't Normal clear stamp set. It's such a fun, sassy stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Watch for more ideas for using these dies and all the other new products from Technique Tuesday!
