Technique Tuesday Winter Pines

Thanks for stopping by!, Today I’m playing with the new winter pines stamp and die from Technique Tuesday

With Christmas right around the corner I created some cute Christmas cards that were so quick and easy to make. You could also skip the card step and add some extra string to create some pretty tags.

I was so happy with how these turned out and how easy they were to make.

I put the stamp aside and used just the Winter Pines Crafting Die to create these happy cards.

I first made the card bases by hanging a circle die cut slightly over a scored and folded card base and ran through the die cutting machine.

I inked up white card stock with oxide inks in rainbow colours. I used the winter pine die to cut from the inked up sheet.

I added white flicks of oxide ink and finished with shimmer spray. I used my heat total to set it faster because I am impatient.

I die cut 2 circles from white card stock. 2 per card. For each card I used the winter pine die to die cut a tree out of the center and stamped around the tree with the pretty snowflakes included in the stamp set.

I then added foam tape to the back of the stamped circle die cut and attached to a solid white die cut circle. I glued the tree die cut into the opening.

I finished the card with some peppermint embellishments and a string bow at the top with a mini pom pom center.

Party of puffins

How cute are these puffins! These sweeties are called Party Of Puffins from the September Animal House release at Technique Tuesday Fabulous sentiments and 3 cute puffins are in this adorable set.

I love the look of orange and grey together so I tried to incorporate those colours into both cards.

For the gorgeous orange intensity I used Wild Honey Oxide Ink and some simple ink blending.

The puffins I coloured with Copics in the colours W7,5,3 for the dark grey and the orange I used YR09,Y38,35

Hope these cards inspire you! 🧡

Sharing 2 cards today using the seriously gorgeous Lisianthus flower stamp set from Technique Tuesday. This was such an easy flower to colour and is definitely going to be a set that I reach for when I need a floral card.

I made 2 cards with this set for my stash. Both were coloured with triblend markers and die cut with the matching Die.

I kept the same feel using stencils for the backgrounds.

A scalloped circle die cut was cut from one panel, a sentiment stamped inside of it. Floral sprigs from my stash were added behind the lisianthus for some extra texture.

I added a scalloped rectangle frame in white to the center of my second card with a soft yellow background. I attached it on top with foam tape to a stencilled panel. I glued the lisianthus partially in the frame and attached the sentiment on a yellow frame and attached to my card with foam tape as well.

Lisianthus stamp and die

Sea you soon

I’m so in love with July’s Animal House Stamps from Technique Tuesday. These shells were so easy to colour, it made for 2 very quick cards that gives me those summer vibes. The set also has many variations of shells which makes it easy to change up your layout. For my 2 cards I picked out my favourite shells, did a slightly different layout for both but kept the cards similar in style.

To make the cards I did a simple stencilled Background 2/3rd of the way down my white card panel. I ripped that purple tape (I always forget the name of it) like masking tape. Overlaying pieces of ripped up tape starting towards the bottom of the sky I created a band across the panel. Left a gap then made another band. I then pressed my embossing pad onto the white space in the gap and heat set sand like embossing powder. I trimmed each side down on the panel. (Just eyeballed)

I added a blue polka dot panel to a white card base and added the sky and embossed panel on top. I finished the card with the shells attached with foam tape.

My sentiment was stamped on the white space on the top panel.

The pink sea shell card I used the same technique with the tape but made only one strip and embossed the entire bottom of the panel. I stencilled the background with the same polka dot stencil and filled in the space with the smaller stamps in the set and small Copic marker dots.

I Ink blended a soft blue on top of where the embossing powder ended and attached my shells with foam tape.

Marigold stamps set

Marigold Crafting Dies

Technique Tuesday

I just love these gorgeous marigolds from this months release at Technique Tuesday.

I created two cards with this set. One as a mini slimline and another as an A2 card.

Both I used brick stencils for the backgrounds with oxide inks. Mowed lawn for one, scattered straw for the other.

I used both Copic and spectrum noir to colour the flowers and used the coordinating Die to cut them out. Two flowers were added to cover the slimline.

I used Gina K obsidian black ink to stamp two of the sentiments from the set on the cards.

Otter-ly wonderful

How cute are these otters from the May release at Technique Tuesday? There is two different otters and some sea elements in this set.

I was excited to finally get the chance to colour up these cuties and give them a home to hang out on.

I created two cards using this fun set using one of the otters for both cards. I have the other one coloured up and ready for future cards in my stash.

Technique Tuesday

I stayed with the same colour theme for both cards using mermaid lagoon for one and the other mermaid lagoon, tumbled glass and patina oxide inks.

I die cut a polka dot panel from a sheet I Ink blended using the 3 oxide inks on. I added foam tape to the back of the popped out Circles and placed them on my white card front.

I added a wave die cut tucked behind a white circle die cut and positioned and glued the otter in front.

My sentiment was stamped in black ink in the center of the circle.

The other card I layered some white circle die cuts to the center in front of a bubble stencilled background blended in mermaid lagoon oxide ink. My sentiment was stamped in black ink to the center.

Orca Clear Stamp Set

Orca matching Crafting dies

This set has so many fabulous sentiments and would be a easy set to make batch cards with and or masculine cards. (Which I definitely struggle with)

To make these cards.

Stencil a water patterned stencil on white card stock for both cards. One panel I slightly trimmed down, the other I used a stitched die to center on my other card.

Stamp your sentiments on both cards using black ink.

Colour and die cut the orcas and attach to card bases with foam tape.

Add a few of the additional images, sequins or embellishments to finish the cards.
