Story Card Sunday: Beautiful Music

Hi everyone!

Sunday means we've got a brand new Story Card to share with you.

A handmade Story Card from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comThis week's Story Card would work great in a pocket page scrapbook or on a traditional scrapbook page. It'd also look good on a card.

Let me show you how you can make one like with Technique Tuesday's clear stamps and steel dies.

You are going to start by doing some die-cutting.

A handmade Story Card tutorial from Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comCut a record and record center with the Music Makers dies. You'll also want to cut a microphone and headphones. You'll also want to cut two small hearts with the Nested Hearts dies. Cut a base card with the Story Card dies.

Sponge ink in a circle onto the base card. I'm using blue. You may want to try pink or green.

September Technique Tuesday Studio AE Blog Hop

Today is one of our favorite days of the month around here at Technique Tuesday. It's the 10th so that means it is Studio AE blog hop time!

This month is a special month because we are celebrating our first year of Studio AE. Not only are our Studio AE creative team members sharing the projects that they made with the September stamp set (named Family Is by Ali Edwards) but some of them are also sharing ideas for the box that every single Studio AE member received with their August shipment. Be sure to visit the blogs of Ali and our Studio AE team to see what they've cooked up for you:

As a thank you for all the comments received during the hop on all eight blogs, we will pick two people to win our Message in a Banner stamp set. You don’t need to leave a comment on all the blogs to be eligible to win. But the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win.

In addition, we are going to give away a prize to one of you who comments on this post. Please tell us what your favorite Studio AE stamp set was over the last year and why. (Need a refresher of what we've released? Check out the Studio AE page on our Web site, as well as our Studio AE Anniversary online gallery.) We’ll pick one of you who comments on this post to win the Holiday in a Box by Ali Edwards stamp set. All comments must be made by midnight PST on September 12th. Tune into the Technique Tuesday blog on September 13th to see if you are one of the lucky winners. Plus on September 13th we'll be inviting you to share your projects too with another round of prizes!
