Christmas Blog Hop with Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to an extra fun day of Holiday Hopping fun with Technique Tuesday!

Technique Tuesday released NEW Holiday products in September and August  and we are all celebrating with a mini Christmas blog hop today! 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. Comments will be taken until September 20th. The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on September 22nd..

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.

Technique Tuesday: Day 1 of the September Release Countdown

Today we are showing Day One of the Technique Tuesday countdown to the new September release! 🙂

I knew I’d stamp these NEW Mandala Sentiments Stamps in Black and White, the moment they arrived in the mail. (This link will work once the products become available on September 1st). In person, the crispness of these stamps is what really makes these Wow! Seeing these photos, it is a little lost in translation of the photo.(Possibly, it was the poor lighting I had to photograph in. 😦 )  If I had the time, I’d have made a whole set of these Thank You cards. I think that would make a lovely gift to give to someone.

These stamps would be fun to color too. I don’t have the patience for the intricacy myself, but I know many people do!

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

And follow the new release over at the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE! Once there, you can find all the Design Team’s blogs to link to.

I’ll see you back here again tomorrow for another sneak!

The Tweetest Warm Wishes

Have you had a chance to check out all the new Technique Tuesday August products! Eeep! I’m back from a little summer vacation road trip and I got crackin’ straightaway last night on these CUTE little birds! The whole release can be seen and is available HERE!

This is new (and extremely adorable) Christmas Birds Stamp Set and their coordinating dies HERE. Teri Anderson and her great mind, designing this lil’ set! 🙂

I mean, how sweet, I mean TWEET, are they!? I popped them into their little nest, which is the very cool Berry Basket Crafting Die. I have been eager to use this great die, and what better plan than a little bird’s nest! 😉

I colored these little cuties with Copic Markers and then added them all on to the basket with some foam tape. I had previously added patterned paper to the card base and added some stitching. I’m not 100% loving the stitching, but I went with it. Getting back into the swing of things after not making anything for almost three weeks is crazy odd! Ha! Silliness. 😉

This is one of my other faves from the August release: Cars on the Road Border Dies, along with the new Sassy Vacation Memories stamp set. ❤️! So fun! You can check out the card I made with them HERE…and other August cards HERE and HERE.

You can find all the NEW August products from Technique Tuesday HERE!

OH and one more quick little note: BIG SALE on some of my favorite stamps and dies HERE! Crazy good sale–and today is the last day!! Just sayin’ 😉Thanks for stopping by –back to the laundry for me!

Take care–Jill 🙂

Technique Tuesday Release Day! August!

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

For this fun card I used this crazy fun new die that my son adores, of course! 🙂 This new die is called: Cars on the Road Border Dies: Gah! So fun and unlike anything I have, which makes it even better. 🙂 The sentiment is from the new Sassy Vacation Memories stamp set. ❤️!

This next card, I whipped up real quick because I thought this car would be super fun for holiday cards too! For this, I used the new Christmas Birds Stamp Set and then cut out the little gifts using the coordinating dies HERE. I cannot wait to use this stamp and die set more. Stand by for that because CUTE lil’ birds!! 🙂

Dashing through the snow….in August! 🙂

August Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s August Release Countdown! It is a really Gr-EIGHT release.  <– See what I did there? 🙂

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

I colored the images with Copic markers and die cut out the octopus. For the background, I used Distress Oxide ink to blend on some color to both panels. I wasn’t planning to match the pink I  colored the octopus, but that’s where it ended up! 🙂

I also wanted to use this fun new border die called: Waves on the Border Crafting Die.

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