Technique Tuesday March 2018 Release Countdown Day 2

Yayyy, Day 2 of Technique Tuesday starts right now!! How did you like yesterday’s sneak peek of the new release? Well hold on to your hats for today’s sneak peek. It’s full of sassy and I love it!!

Let’s take a look:

Sassy Love Your Guts Clear Stamp
I love these sentiments. The stamp set is called Sassy Love Your Guts!

I can’t stop laughing each time I read them. We all know someone who thinks they know everything. This card is perfect for them.

This stamp set comes with images to go with each sentiment but I decided to keep the cards image free.

Here’s how this card was created:

Each card is cut to 4 x 8, scored at 4.

Place the the card base in the Mini MISTI and place the sentiment stamp in the upper left hand corner and bottom right hand corner with black ink.

To finish the card off, using a black pen draw lines freehand.

Super quick and easy.

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

Take a look at my card:

For this week’s cue card I used the new Love You to Pieces Clear stamp set and Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die from Technique Tuesday!!  Yes, they are brand new and will be released on March 1st.

This set is so fitting for our cue card.  When you die cut the heart, it appears to be in pieces but the pieces are attached at the corners.  They just need a small pair of scissors to snap those corners to break the pieces apart.  Which is what I did above.

I love how this card turned out.  I also created another card, similar in style, using this same set, take a look here.

Super simple and easy.

What do you think?

Technique Tuesday March 2018 Release Countdown Day 1

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today for the first time as a Technique Tuesday Design Team Member!! I’m super excited because I’ve loved Technique Tuesday for a long time, so to be apart of the team is amazing.

 

Today we are showcasing Technique Tuesday March 2018 Release!  You are going melt into pieces when you see what we have in store for you! So lets get right to it!

Let’s take a look:

Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die

Now tell my you heart didn’t just melt. That Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die is just the cutest!! Guess what, you can pair it with the Love You to Pieces Clear Stamp Set.

The puzzle pieces are attached just at the corners but with a pair of snips the can come apart for versatility. The stamp set is amazing because of the different font styles in each sentiment. I love the bold paired with the smaller lettering.

Here’s how this card was created:

I created a watercolor piece using Prima Watercolor Confections Odyssey set and Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. The colors are delicious!

Once the watercolor piece dries, use a die cutting machine to die cut the Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die.

Position the heart die where you want it on the 4×4 card front, then stamp the sentiment right next to the die cut in the bottom right corner.

Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the different pieces and adhere the heart to the card front.

Use We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to round the top corners of the card.

Super clean and simple!!

Altenew Build-A-Flower Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Build-A-Flower Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the different Build-A-Flower stamp sets Altenew carries. If you’ve arrived here from the talented Virginia Lu blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my Scrapbook Planner Layout:

Blissful Bud

I used Altenew Blissful Bud stamp set!! I know its not named a Build-A-Flower stamp set but you do build these roses.

I decided to continue with scrapbooking in my planner because it’s doable and I love how my planner pages look day-to-day.

Have you ever worked with people that you truly loved? Have you worked with co-workers that you consider family? Well I have and I have to say that I miss them a lot. So I decided that I had to document them in my planner.  I meet these ladies 7 years ago when I return back to Bellevue to work. We’ve laughed together, cried together, brainstormed together, and encouraged one another. I miss them so much. They deserve a page in my planner!!

Here’s how I created this Planner Scrapbook Layout:

I’m using a Hobonichi Techo 2018 this year.  I love how small and compact it is. Scrapbooking in this planner is so easy because space is limited and I’m not required to fill a whole page.

Print the photo you want to use in your planner. The picture above was printed with the FijiFlim INSTAX Share SP-2 Smart Phone Printer.

Stamp the stem using Altenew Green Meadow ink set. Start with Altenew Just Green Crisp Dye Ink  then stamp the inner stem piece using Altenew Hunter Green Crisp Dye Ink.

Follow the steps to stamp the leaves using the same colors or the other two colors in the same Green Meadow set.

Blissful Bud

Now its time to stamp the rose bud.  Following the same steps as the stem, choose three different colors to build the rose bud. I used Altenew Tea Party Oval Set to build the rose bud.

Start from the lightest color to the darkest color. I started with Altenew Pink Pearl, then Coral Bliss and ended with Heart Beat.

Tea Party Ink Set

Once the rose are complete, its time to stamp the sentiments to go along with the photo. Along with the sentiment from Blissful Bud, I used a couple of sentiments from Altenew’s Beautiful Inside stamp set using Altenew Permanent Black Crisp Ink. 

Complete the page with some journaling.

Perfect!!!

Let’s take another look:

Blissful Bud

I love knowing that I can open my planner and see this page.

Where Creativity Meets C9 Watercolor Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Watercolor!!

Watercoloring is one of my favorite mediums to use.  It is so forgiving and no matter what happens it is your masterpiece.  There are no mistakes with watercoloring and that is what is so much fun when I work with them.

For my card today, I created my own background using a couple of colors and a paintbrush. Super easy and totally fun.

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I used Prima’s Confection Odyssey Watercolor, a 12 flat brush and Concord and 9th By Your Side stamp set.

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Select the colors you want to use.
  2. Wet your brush, pick up a color and create squares on your card front.
  3. Once you have as many squares as you want, heat set so that the watercolor square could dry.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Altenew Permenant Black ink.
  5. Round the corners using We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.

Super quick and simple!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.
