Technique Tuesday Release Day! June!

The day has come for all the new Technique Tuesday June products to be available HERE!

For this fresh new card, I used Technique Tuesday’s new Strawberry Stamp Set and the new Jam Jar Labels Crafting Dies. For this, I stamped the strawberries with Versafine ink and then I decided at the end, I wanted to color that one strawberry. Well, I was too far along to turn back now. Since Versafine is not Copic marker friendly, I pulled out my Prismacolor pencils. Whooohooo! I quite enjoy how it all turned out in the end. 🙂

I added a smidge of stitching and some twine, and the card was complete!

Be sure to head over the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE so you can check out all the DT’s projects. I always enjoy seeing them!

June Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s June Release Countdown! Orange you glad we found each other. 🙂 That’s my card today! 🙂

These cutie little oranges and sentiment are from the new soon to be released TT set called, Funny Fruits Stamp Set and the coordinating dies are HERE. (Links will work once these products are released on June 1st.) I ❤ this new set! Too fun! This set has fun little faces you can stamp onto all the funny fruits, which I love! For this card though, I went googley eyes, of course. 😉

I colored the oranges with Copic markers, added the googley eyes. After that, I adhered them both with foam tape to some patterned paper I cut out with TT’s Memo Pad Card dies. To finish it off,  I added some twine, a little stitching, and adhered it all to a scored card base. 🙂

Thank you, Freshly Made Sketches Team :)

Good Morning! If you are looking for my Technique Tuesday June Release Preview post, please head over **HERE**!

Today is my final post as a Guest Designer over at Freshly Made Sketches! You can check out their great challenge blog HERE. HUGE thanks to the FMS Team for having me along this past month and being so kind and generous!

And here is this week’s sketch #339:

And here is my card for today! I used a soon to be released die from Technique Tuesday, called Strawberries on the Border die.  (<–This link will work on June 1st, when this die is available 🙂 )

These strawberries look good enough to eat! 🙂  I die cut everything from different colored cardstocks. Then after drawing diagonal lines with a fine black pen and stamping the sentiment, I adhered down the negative die cut and inlaid everything. I finished off the card with a little stitching and twine, and done! 🙂

The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday as well. It is from THIS fun set (Sassy Love Your Guts) HERE! 🙂

Thank you again to the FMS crew! I really enjoyed my time with you ladies and appreciate all your kindness! 🙂 I hope to be sketchy again with you someday!

Take care– Jill 🙂

Technique Tuesday: June Release Countdown

Today we are showing Day One of the Technique Tuesday countdown to the new  JUNE release! It’s SUMMERTASTIC!!

For this card, I used the soon to be released, Sweet Summertime Clear Stamps, and the coordinating dies HERE. (Link will work on June 1st when products are released.)  How fun is this watermelon and sentiment together? I’m actually mailing this today! 🙂

For this card, i colored the watermelon slices with Copic Markers. For the card panel, I just masked off some stripes and worked my way across, blending on some colors. I love that watermelon panel alone–so summery!

Be sure to check out the NEW products from Technique Tuesday HERE! (Again, these new products above will be available via their links on June 1st!)

You Are Plane Awesome

I’m popping in to share a fun Technique Tuesday card with the manly May release!

I always love good puns, and this stamp set, What a Guy,  fits the bill! I white heat embossed all my stamping and put this card together. 🙂

For this next card, I just did some tone on tone stamping to the panel before adding all the stitching. I put the whole thing on top of some cork for texture, but if I had to do it again, I’d use the cork a little more predominately, I think. 🙂

Another great man card, Love Beyond Measure. So fun!

(There are coordinating dies for this TT What A Guy stamp set too–you can find those HERE.)

Be sure to check out the NEW products from Technique Tuesday HERE! We’ll also be sharing some sneaks to the June release this coming week! Get ready!

*Technique Tuesday and MISTI!* (pssst….Giveaway!)

Good Morning and Happy Weekend!! Today, we are having a fun blog hop between the My Sweet Petunia and Technique Tuesday! Whooohoooo! A perfect pairing of two of my most used companies. 🙂 Buckle up, there are prizes!!

On with my card, yes?

For this card, I used Technique Tuesday’s Happy Happy Happy Stamp set and Man Day stamps for the Birthday sentiment stamp. I stamped and heat embossed them in white, easily spacing them straight with MISTI. After that, I used my Kuretake pearl palette of sparkly watercolors from Kuretake. (This set HERE is a larger solid color set.)

Anywho, I polished off this card with a few Pretty Pink Posh confetti sequins and and some stitching.

Now, let’s chat about the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented from My Sweet Petunia! I gave my standard MISTI a little tune up and I am really loving it! First, you should know that I use my MISTIs  “backwards”. So, when I saw that you can replace your ruler strips with not only other colors, but that I could also have my numbers in the correct direction, I was all over it. You can check those options out HERE. (There are also turquoise replacement rulers.) Now I just need to retrofit my Mini MISTI!

Then I decided to add the Mouse Pad to my MISTI. I recommend this for quick clean up and ease. I’ll still use my grid papers (those are HERE), but this has made everything look cleaner overall. Highly enjoyable! 🙂

Ok, I mentioned prizes! Here’s the details: Two lucky commenters will be chosen from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $50 shopping spree at and a $50 shopping spree at – You must leave your comments no later than Monday, May 28th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday May 29th, on the Technique Tuesday and My Sweet Petunia blogs
Next on the hop, you’re going to head over to Susan Wymer‘s blog and see what she has in store! It is surely worth the hop over! 🙂
Here’s the list of all the fun stops today! Be sure to hop along and leave comments for your chances at the prizes above! 🙂
Good luck and have a wonderful weekend! Hope it includes some stamping! 🙂
