A Card from Teri

 Hi all!

Teri here, and I'm excited to share a card with you today.

2_butterfliesscritchscratchcard_techniquetuesday

I just love Technique Tuesday's Butterfly Collage stamp. It's so easy to work with. Whether you are scribbling a background with color pencils and stamping the Butterfly Collage on top or stamping it and coloring the butterflies in, you can get some really stunning results with this stamp.

Technique-Tuesday-Butterfly-Collage-Clear-Stamps-Medium

For this card, I stamped the image with black ink and then colored the butterflies and label with colored pencils. 

2_butterfliesscritchscratch_techniquetuesday

By the way, can you believe that most everything on this card was stamped? Yep. From the butterflies to the yellow background, I stamped most everything (other than those black gems next to the label)!

The background paper was easy to create with Technique Tuesday's Scritch Scratch clear stamp.

Technique-Tuesday-Scritch-Scratch-Clear-Stamps-Medium

So all I did was ink the stamp up and stamp on a piece of cardstock. Then I repeated those steps again and again.

A Watercolor Card for Spring

Hello all!

Spring's here so I thought It would be fun to make something with one of my favorite nature-themed Technique Tuesday stamp sets. Let me introduce you to the One Of A Kind stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-One-Of-A-Kind-Clear-Stamps-Medium

Pretty, huh?

And here's the card I made with it.

1_TT_Tomorrow1_teri

I think the hardest part was making that colorful background.  

Here's how I did it:

* I die-cut a base from watercolor paper with Technique Tuesday's Story Card steel die.

* I scribbled some color with watercolor crayons onto a clear stamping block.

* I added a few drops of water to the color.

* Finally, I set the block onto the watercolor paper panel and pulled the color downward.

(If you are curious to how that process looked, check out this video on Instagram. Keep in mind it was shot with my cellphone so it's cellphone quality, but it will give you an idea of how I got the watercolor look.)

I finished the panel up by just stamping on top with black ink. By the way, the sentiment strip was created with Technique Tuesday's Label steel die. I just love that fun shape! 

1_TT_Tomorrow2_teri

Fun stuff! See you again soon!

Springing Into Spring with Tobi

Ooh la la!

Tobi stamped the flowers (from the Chrysanthemum - Greenhouse Society stamp set) with watermark ink and then dusted them with color. 

She created the custom sentiment by mixing together a couple words from the set.

Say Hello with Tanis

Today's all about the pretty on the Technique Tuesday blog.

That's because we have one really pretty card from Tanis Giesbrecht!

P7250695

Check out how Tanis created the flowers with our Petite Posies stamp set.

Technique-Tuesday-Petite-Posies-Clear-Stamps-Medium

She stamped the flowers with blue ink six times on cardstock. She fussy cut them and then colored in three of the flowers. Then she really kicked things up a notch, stacking the flowers up and then stitching them together with floss.

So cool! Got to try that.

A Pretty Card from Daniela

It's Friday, and Daniela Dobson is here today with a pretty card.

Saying hello Daniela Dobson

She used the Saying Hello by Ali Edwards and Fabulous by Ali Edwards stamp sets to make it.

Technique-Tuesday-AE-Saying-Hello-Clear-Stamps-Medium Technique-Tuesday-AE-Fabulous-Clear-Stamps-Medium

To enhance the yellow patterned paper, she stamped the larger flower from the Fabulous set on it again and again. What a great way to customize patterned paper!

Saying hello close Daniela Dobson

She created the scene of flowers by stamping the flowers, stem and leaves repeatedly on cardstock and then fussy cutting them and assembling them together.
