Create a Handmade Card in a Few Easy Steps

Hi, friends!

I feel like my home is in a constant state of renovation and redecoration lately. I'll replace one thing in the house and then find something else to do. It results in trips to the hardware store several times a week. 

A recent trip there led me to the electrical department, where I was mesmerized by some of the light fixtures that mimicked the look of light bulbs hanging freely from the ceiling. I was so inspired that I came home and made this light bulb-inspired card! 

HangingYouLightUpMyLifeCard-Teri-TechniqueTuesdayWant to make a card like it? It's easy. Just follow these simple steps.

Start by die-cutting several small and large light bulbs from white cardstock with the Bright Lights paper crafting dies. (If you are having a hard time getting the die to cut, consider using a metal adaptor plate with your die-cutting machine. I find this helpful when working with intricate dies.)

Lightsstep1Set the light bulbs on scratch paper. Use a couple gray pens to add some color to their necks like so. 

Use a sponge dauber (or cosmetic sponge) to apply ink onto the glass portion of the smaller light bulbs. 

Lightsstep2
Lightsstep3Repeat the last step. This time apply ink to the larger light bulbs.

Remove the center pieces from most of the light bulbs. Consider replacing the center pieces in some of the light bulbs with fresh pieces cut from white cardstock.

Lightsstep4

Lightsstep5Adhere your light bulbs to a card. (Not a cardmaker? Use them on a scrapbook page instead!) For added visual interest, arrange them so they are next to each other but are at different highs. 

Make your light bulbs hang by drawing wires. This is easy! Take any black pen and then use either a ruler or a stamping block as a guide for drawing straight lines.

HangingYouLightUpMyLifeCardClose-Teri-TechniqueTuesdayComplete your card by adding a sentiment to the card. (The phrase I used is from the Light Bulb Moment stamp set, but you will find lots of great phrases to use instead from all the other Occasion and Sentiment stamp sets on our website! ) You'll also want to add a few strips of cardstock or patterned paper toward the bottom of the card. Give the card a hint of glitz by adding a few sequins or gems to it. 

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial! I'd love to see what you are making with Technique Tuesday's stamps and dies! Leave a link to your latest project for me so I can check it out and leave a little love.

September Release Sneak Peek #1

Hi, friends!

It is back to school time here in Oregon. 

It's a time of excitement and change around here as my good friends' little guy is starting kindergarten this year. He's so excited to go to school and learn (and, most importantly, play on the playground at recess).

It's so fun to see how excited he is about this new chapter of life. And it's neat to see my friends as they get the little guy ready and, at the same time, adjust to the thought of him being away from home every day for a few hours for school. It's exciting and scary for them. 

The September release from Technique Tuesday has some cool products that are perfect for documenting and scrapbooking  memories. I'm particularly fond of a new scrapbook stamp set Bev created to help document changes in life, like a child starting school or leaving home to move into their first apartment or to go off to college!

Here are a couple sneak peeks at the stamp set.

Many of the phrases and images in this new stamp set work perfectly with the recently released Captions and Labels paper crafting dies

Like what you see? You'll find it right here on the 1st, along with all our other new products. 

Be sure to stop by the blog again on Tuesday for another sneak peek at some of September's other new products. (Here are a few hints of what's to come: another sea creature; something for planners; some cool dies and another beautiful flower!)

Also, be sure to comment on this sneak peek post or any of our sneak peek or countdown posts that appear here on the Technique Tuesday blog between today and August 31st, 2018. We'll pick one lucky commenter to score a $20 Technique Tuesday gift certificate. Comments must be posted on the Technique Tuesday blog by midnight PST on August 31st, 2018. The winner will be announced here on the blog on Sept. 1st.

Here's a Chance to Win Your Favorite Scrapbook Stamp Set!

Scrapbooking stamps from Technique Tuesday | TechniqueTuesday.comHi, everyone!

Remember how much fun it was hanging with your friends when you were a little kid? What about the feelings you experienced when you brought your children home from the hospital? And what about what it was like to send your children off to school for the first time?

One of the beautiful things about scrapbooking is being able to document and record the days of our lives and all the feelings we never ever want to forget.  
 
Scrapbooking memories is particularly important to me as I lost both my parents at a young age. I found great comfort after they passed away in looking through the many scrapbooks my mom compiled. She had meticulously chronicled the story of our family. I recently looked at my stash of scrapbooking supplies and told myself that I need to scrapbook more often so that my family's story will live on, and, maybe someday, someone will find comfort in my scrapbooks as I did my mom's.  
 
If you are new to scrapbooking (or haven't done it in awhile), it's easy to get started (or re-started). Grab a scrapbook, a few basic scrapbook supplies and some pictures and simply sit down and write out some of your memories. You can kick things up a notch by using a few scrapbooking stamps to help you in telling your family's story. 
 
We want to help you scrapbook your memories! 
 
Starting today, you can enter for a chance win one of our clear stamps for scrapbooking. Here's how: 
  1. Choose your favorite stamp set from all the scrapbooking stamps on our website.
  2. Leave the name of your favorite stamp set in a comment here between now and July 29th, 2018.
 We will announce a winner here on our blog on August 1st, 2018.
