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.

YNS Supplies: Sprinkles Hoppy Holidays Stamp Set and Dies, Windows for Waddles Die

Other Supplies: Salty Ocean Distress Ink, Clear Wink of Stella, My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink, Copic Markers, 3M Foam Tape

To create this card, I die cut the Window out of my card panel. Then I stamped the sentiment right underneath the window.  After that,  I stamped my bunny and colored him in using Copic markers. Then I cut a mask out and cover the bunny up so I could ink the area around him.  I masked off the window area on the card base and inked up the window area. I removed the mask and attached the card panel to the card base.  I stamped the gifts, colored and fussy cut the gifts out.  This set has dies but I didn’t have them so I fussy cut them out. I attached the gift boxes using foam tape.

Nice, easy and cute!!

Take a look at my postcard:

YNS Supplies: Sandy Autumn Greetings

Other Supplies: Derwant Inktense Pencils, Archival Ink, Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Postcard Paper

I told you this was my second favorite stamp set from this release!!  I love these squirrels.  The funny thing is I do not like squirrels at all.  The ones by my house are super crazy and they look at you like you are in there space.

To create this postcard was simple, I stamp the image and then watercolor using my Inktense pencils.  My inspiration for the coloring came from this image:

Once it dried, I stamped my sentiment.  Then I turned the card over and stamped the acorns and watercolor those too!

Super easy and fun.  I love playing with watercolors on this image.

So what do you think?  I had so much fun creating these boxes and card to inspire all of you and show you the versatility of the stamp sets! Which one of these items are favorite?  I would love to hear from you!
