Beautiful Floral Cards by Barb Engler

Hi all! You are in for a real treat today! We've got some beautiful cards from special guest, Barb Engler!

Barb Engler

Barb is an incredible stamper with a knack for adding details to her cards. She's also a master at using color. You can find her handmade cards on her blog, as well on her Instagram account. Her body of work is fantastic! By the way, she's also the host of the Simon Says Stamp! Flickr challenge and is just a very kind, big-hearted crafter! We are so happy to share some of her work with you today!

This first card from Barb is sure a stunner.

Lots of Love by Barb Engler for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

The Coreopsis flowers looks beautiful in purple! Such a great color choice for them! And check out how she gave the flowers some extra dimension by adding a little bit of detail with a white gel pen. Absolute perfection! 

Her card also has some beautiful movement going on with the addition of the three stamped bees (also from the Coreopsis stamp set) and the strategic placement of the five sequins. Awesome!

If you liked that card, you are going to love this second one!

Hi Bouquet handmade card by Barb Engler for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

Talk about a beautiful job coloring! Barb once again used a white gel pen to give the flowers (from the Hi Bouquet stamp set) a little extra pop. LOVE that. Anyone else anxious to give that a try on their next handmade card?

Another fun idea from Barb is she made her own background paper for this card! She took a gray piece of cardstock and then stamped one of the individual flowers from the Hi Bouquet stamp set all over it. That's a great idea! 

Let's give Barb a big hand!

Be sure to tune in tomorrow! We have one more beautiful card by Barb to share with you! I think you will find it to be a real hoot! Wait. I said too much! Wink! See you Tuesday!

Mary Dawn Quirindongo

On your mark. Get set. Here we go!

Greatest Blessing by Mary Dawn Quirindongo for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.comTalk about a beautiful card! You like?

Mary Dawn created this stunner with the Hyacinth stamp set. That gorgeous field of Hyacinth flowers was created with masking. And then she added color to each flower. Don't you love how they aren't the same color? It just adds to the richness of this pretty scene.

To round out her scene, she die-cut a couple dragonflies with the Hyacinth dies and then stamped on top. Again, she colored each of them with a different color.

For more inspiration from Mary Dawn, tune in on Thursdays. We'll be sharing her work over the next few weeks. Here's a sneak peek from Mary Dawn at something else she's made with the Hyacinth stamp set that we'll be sharing soon!

Make Your Own Patterned Paper

Here's a fun idea: Create your own patterned paper like Daniela Dobson did!

My Friend Flower card by Daniela Dobson Repeatedly stamp the small flower stamps from the Garden of Life by Cath Edvalson stamp set onto cardstock with different colors of ink. Keep going until your paper is covered with flowers. You'll end up with a gorgeous paper to use on a card or scrapbook page.

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.
