Technique Tuesday: April Release Countdown

Happy Friday! Today we are showing Day One of the Technique Tuesday countdown to the new release! It’s another lovely release with a few laughs in the mix, of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

My card uses a super sweet new sentiment and some fantastically bold flowers!

I colored these flowers with Copic Markers. Yes, that is indeed purple. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Voluntary use of purple. I should maybe check my temperature again? ๐Ÿ™‚ Ha! For the background, I blended on some Distress Oxide Inks and added some splats. This one is already en route to my Grandmother. โค

These two new sets are called: Grandma Blessings Clear Stamps and Flowers For Her Clear Stamps. (Links available once the release goes live on April 1st.)

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

And follow the new release over at the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE! You can link to all the other Design Team members goodness there too–NOT to be missed!

I’ll catch you back here again tomorrow for another preview!

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

More than Chocolate?

We are now prepping for April–wow! But have you seen all the new March Technique Tuesday products available HERE!? Fun fun!

It’s no secret that I always adore the Technique Tuesday Sassy sentiments stamp sets. This month, the new set is: Sassy Love Your Guts. And the coordinating dies for this stamp set are HERE.

Bwaaahahaaaa! So funny! ๐Ÿ™‚

I made this card before I had the dies, but I love the Black and White simplicity โค .

You can check out another fun card I made and shared HERE previously. I love sending funny cards!

Thanks for stopping by again today!

Take care–Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Technique Tuesday Release Day!

The day has come for all the new Technique Tuesday March products to be available HERE! Hoooooray! AND I get to share my favorite card from this release! โค

(If you missed my post Tuesday, click HERE. If you missed my post yesterday, catch up on that one HERE!)

As I said, this is my favorite card, because I am always a huge fan of the laughs the Sassy sets bring me! ๐Ÿ™‚ This card was made with the new Technique Tuesday stamp set: Sassy Love Your Guts. And the coordinating dies for this stamp set are HERE.

I mean, if this sentiment does say I love your guts, what does?! Haaaaa! I think it’s a riot! ๐Ÿ™‚

For the background of this card, I again blended on Distress Oxide inks and added some splatters. (Sensing a pattern this month, are you? LOL!) I colored the fun jellyfish with Zig Clean Color markers and white heat embossed the sentiment on a black piece of cardstock. I adhered all the jellies with foam tape for dimension, added a few sequins and stitched the panel down. I can’t wait to give this one to my husband. Bwaaaahaaahaa!

Be sure to head over the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE so you can link to the whole TT DT’s Sneaks! I imagine they are all pin worthy! ๐Ÿ™‚

More Sneaks from Technique Tuesday!

Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s March Release Countdown! Let’s see if I can get your goat… ๐Ÿ™‚

(If you missed my post yesterday, click HERE to head over there and see those fun new goodies too!)

Today, I am sharing a fun new set called Gertie and Garth Goat! I so โค that name Gertie! ๐Ÿ™‚ There are coordinating dies available for them HERE too! (These links will work when the products are available tomorrow, March 1st!)

I didn’t have the coordinating die when I made this card, so please overlook the fussy cutting. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think this is such a fun card to give to a family welcoming a new little one! ๐Ÿ™‚I blended on Distress Oxide inks and added a few splatters afterward. I then stitched the whole panel on and added my watercolored Gertie Goat. ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to head over the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE so you can link to everyone’s projects! I can’t wait to see everything that was made too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Technique Tuesday March Sneaks!

Hello and welcome to my first sneak of Technique Tuesday’s March Release! Can I call it a sneak if I share the whole card? Well, I am. ๐Ÿ™‚ Haaaa!

This new TT release has a little bit for everyone! Lots of love sharing today, but there is more, I promise! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh goodness! How fun is this heart puzzle? This die is called: Pieces of My Heart and the stamp set I used is called Love You to Pieces. (These links will work once the products go live on March 1st, Release Day!)

I blended some Distress Oxide ink on cardstock and then die cut the heart three times over. I think they turned out great and I already gave this one to my Grandmother. ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I used the new Love Puzzle die! And again, the new stamp set, Love You to Pieces.

I kept this one pretty simple. I used score lines on the base panel to add a little texture. I think it would be fun to just use the letters on their own too! I’ll have to try that next. ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to check out the NEW products from Technique Tuesday HERE! These new products above will be available via those links on Thursday, March 1st! ๐Ÿ™‚

And follow the new release over at the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good stuff!

I’ll catch you back here again tomorrow for another preview! Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

A Ear-y Twist & Dinos! :)

I thought I would use the new Paper Smooches Dog die in a different way too: Ears or mountains?! Haaaa!
jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs
I had this one in my head and had to get it out! I also used the Huge Hugs! Seriously, this Dino: โค โค ! I colored the Dino with Copic markers and gave him and his balancing hearts some dimension with foam tape. I used my white pen to snow cap the mountains.jill_cat-and-dog-die_huge-hugs_00
For this card, I also used bits from the following: Heart Frame Die, Feathered Friends Icon dies, and Snowdrifts dies.
Here are a few more Dino-mite cards to enjoy using the new Dinosaur Die! Once I started, I couldn’t stop using him/her! ๐Ÿ™‚
This one also uses the Tag Stitched die. This little guy is Wild! He is riding the Bicycle die ๐Ÿ™‚Also, the sentiment is from the new Huge Hugs 2 set. โค Paper Smooches sentiments! Of course, I had to make this little cutie a girl too! ๐Ÿ™‚ This is made with the Love Word 2 die, Heart Frame die, and the Dainty Flowers 2 die.
She is too cute!! Eeeep! I love the navy and pink together.

You will find all the new Paper Smooches productsย HERE. ย 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a Dino-mite weekend!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Family Laughs

Happy (Technique) Tuesday! The new Technique Tuesday release can be found HERE!

I soooooo enjoy THIS new set from Technique Tuesday called Sassy Family. I think sometimes a sentiment is all you need for a card. With two of these cards below, I did just that:

I would never ignore a call. ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I stamped in orange and heat embossed it clear. Then I added some patterned papers and some stitching to keep it simple.

This sentiment, I find particularly hilarious and OH SO TRUE! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I scored the paper on this card before adding watercolor with Distress Inks. I was hoping the ink would pool up in the creases, but no such luck. It’s always an experiment with watercolor!

And of course, this sentiment above about the bathroom and silence, is my FAVORITE of this set. I just think is so funny and SO TRUE!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I might have one last sentiment to ink from this set? Otherwise, I’ve used them all. Such fun!

Don’t forget to check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! Happy March!

Thanks for stopping by!
