WCMD with Technique Tuesday! Blog Hop!

Today is World Card Making Day! I hope you get to celebrate by making a few cards. I’m going to try to make a couple this evening !

Technique Tuesday has a fun new stamp set, You’re Owlsome, in honor of WCMD! (You can receive this stamp set FREE–details below).

I made this fun card to send a friend:

I colored this fun owl with Copic Markers and die cut him out with the coordinating dies. For the background, I used X-pressit sparkly tape that my friend gifted me! Love this tape! Sparkle with no mess! I got out my X-Acto blade and trimmed the edges for a crisp line….need a light hand so you don’t cut through the card base 🙂 .

October Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s October Release Countdown! Today’s is as fun as yesterday’s!

Today I used the VERY soon to be released Bow on the Border Die. This bow is so bold it really holds a card all on its own—fabulousness! It’s great for the holidays, but I think I like it more for anytime of the year! 🙂 The sentiment is from the new String of Lights Stamp Set. (*Links will work when the new products are released tomorrow, October 1st)

I die cut the bow on the border of a panel and inlaid the patterned paper, tying a gift tag on. I was intending to make a birthday card, but then this red and white striped card happened and then it became about the holidays. ❤

Technique Tuesday: Day 1 of the October Release Countdown

Today we are showing Day One of the Technique Tuesday countdown to the new October release! Oh happy day! 🙂

Today I am sharing a FAVE of mine from the NEW String of Lights Stamp Set colored with colored pencils. Holiday lights are one of my favorite iconic images for the holidays and I was sooooo happy to see these new stamps!! (Links will work on October 1st, release day.) I have another card to share another day with these cute lights.

I colored the lights with colored pencils. I haven’t used my pencils in a long while, so I fear my skills are needing to be dusted off. Not completely loving how this card ended up, now that I see it in a photo. But that’s half the fun: Improving and practice! LOVE these lights!!

Be sure to check out the NEW products from Technique Tuesday HERE! (The new product above will be available via its link on October 1!)

TT will be releasing more Christmas products in October and November. LOOK OUT! Some of my favorites are already out and the rest are coming along quick!! Hint: October. Wink wink. And well, November. ha! You can find all the available sets HERE.
For my super cutie little bird cards below, I used Technique Tuesday’s adorable Christmas Birds set!  There are also coordinating dies HERE for them.
For this card, I also used the recently released Cars on the Road Border Die to make the little snow hill.

I colored everything with Copic Markers and to the above card, I added snow drops with Nuvo white drops. It’s so snowy!! Funny because I made this card while I was sweating. LOL! 🙂

For this card, I also colored with Copic Markers and die cut out the pieces. I masked some stripes on the card panel and splattered with some paint. I stamped the sentiment, added some washi and finished it off with some stitching. Love this little bird!! 🙂And of course, because this is about the Holidays AND about fun, Technique Tuesday is offering up a Prize!  They’ll give a Technique Tuesday gift certificate to someone who comments during this mini hop on one of our stops.

Technique Tuesday Release Day! September!

Today is the day for all the new Technique Tuesday September products to be available HERE!

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday dies: Amazing Arrows Stamp Set. The die set has five different arrows in it, so get Cupid ready for Valentine’s Day! 🙂 The “love you” die cut sentiment is from the Lovely Lavender dies. So sweet!

I thought it would be fun to line up all the arrows on some rainbow paper and then stitch them down. I added the “love you” as the perfect sentiment for the card.

September Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s September Release Countdown! It’s chock full of sentiments, holidays and whale, everything! 🙂

For this card, I used the new-soon-to-be-released TT set called, Wendell the Whale Stamp Set and the coordinating dies: Wendell the Whale Crafting Dies. The puns get me every time! 🙂 (*Links will work when the new products are released tomorrow, September 1st)

I made the background the color and left the whale in the black and white. Again, this seems to be the phase I’m in currently. 😉

I thought I’d make a handful of Thank you cards while at it. I stamped all these at the same time, to make the streamline go a little faster. 🙂

For these, I used the number 8 from the stamp set: Story of December Days Stamp Set and the sentiment is from Wendell the Whale Stamp Set.

.By the time I finished stamping these, I had finally figure out the most efficient strategy to stamp. 🙂

These are perfect for our son, whom, and you may have gathered is turning EIGHT!!! OMGOODNESS

But I like these little bubble numbers–and they stamp crisp vs bleeding and not being able to read that’s an 8–fabulous! 🙂

I added some score lines and some stitching to polish off the cards before adhering everything down.
