Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release Countdown Day 2

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing Technique Tuesday April 2018 Release!! Were you pleased with yesterday’s projects? Well let’s see what today holds.

Let’s take a look:

Grandma blessingsI love this Grandma Blessings stamp set because the sentiments are so true.  Grandma’s are truly a blessing and we don’t know how lucky we are to have them until they are gone.

I lost my grandmother last month so this set really hit home for me.  My grandmother spoiled us.  She was tough but she really loved us and made us laugh.

Since my grandmother isn’t here anymore, I decided to create a “postcard” card to send to my grandmother in heaven.  I will place it in her bible when no one is looking.

Here’s how this card was created:

Use Cricut Design Studio to create the card base.

Placed a piece of kraft board on a standard mat and run it through the Cricut Maker.

The Cricut Maker scores (with the scoring stylus) and draws the lines (with the midnight pen) on the card front.

Once the Cricut Maker finishes, peel the card front off of the mat.

Fold on the scored line.

Using the Mini MISTI, stamp a sentiment on the left side of the card using Versafine Black Onyx Ink.

Let that dry a bit.

Then stamp the flower stamp underneath the sentiment using ColorBox Crafter’s Berry Ink.

Super simple and easy card!

There’s more:

The Cricut Maker can cut out an envelope as well.

A simple butterfly stamp in the bottom right corner keeps the entire set CAS!!

Nicely done.

I love the beauty of this stamp set. Very simple and elegant. This set is called Iris.

Here’s how this card was created:

Cute a piece of Stratmore Bristol Smooth paper to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.

{Clean and Simple} – Cross

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 card, I used a retired Top Dog Dies Cross die pared with Freckled Fawn Black Script Puffy Alpha stickers.

Here’s how I created this card:

Die cut the cross die out of white and black cardstock.

Adhere them together using Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.

Adhere the cross to the card base using foam tape.

Add Freckled Fawn Black Script Puffy Alpha stickers to the right side of the cross to finish it off.

Easy as 1-2-3-4!!!
