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!)

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

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

Thanks for stopping by!

Fresh Slices of Thanks

I’m back today with some watermelon goodness using the same set as yesterday: Technique Tuesday’s Summer Adventure. You can check out a couple other cards I made with the same set HERE and HERE. 🙂 Summmmer! 🙂

hawkins_jill_thanks_wmToday, the grass was wet. Haaaaa!! 🙂

hawkins_jill_thanks_00_wmLove these WATERMELONS and this Hometown Alpha set ROCKS! 🙂

I masked off some watercolor paper and stamped all the watermelons from Technique Tuesday’s Summer Adventure. After that, I loosely watercolored them with my Zig pens, diecut the letters, arranged, stitched and poof! Oh, and the little heart is from TT’s Heart Strings die. 😉

If I made this again, I’d make that center space narrower and tighten the columns I think? Hmmmm? I actually thought this would be a technique trial card, but it went well, so I ran with it! 🙂 And now, I need to mail it!
