Technique Tuesday!

I love stamping and I really love Technique Tuesdays!! Technique Tuesday's force me out of my little box and make me try new things. I love trying to find new techniques as well as new projects. If you want to come and learn then join us on the third Tuesday of each month! You will get to make three instruction cards like you see below and three cards using the technique. Cost is $10 or $5 with a $25 purchase. The Technique Ring also works as a cardstock sampler as well. It is never to late to start learning how to use those awesome stamping supplies you have accumulated.

Here are the cards we did for January's Technique Tuesday!

Bouncy Card!
I got this awesome card idea from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. When I saw her tutorial I immediately thought of these cute balloons!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Pun Fun
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, Chocolate chip, whisper white
Accessories: Tag punch, blender pens, neutrals water color crayons, wire, Tangerine Tango striped ribbon

Hinge Fold Card!
The technique card for this would not load correctly so I will just tell you a little about this fun card! It is a 4.25x11 card scored at 1.25 and glued down creating a fun 4.25 x 4.25 card. The top part can be rolled with a wheel, decorated with brads or buttons or even tied with a ribbon.
Stamps: A flower for all Seasons, Outlined for fun
Paper: Not quite navy, so saffron, whisper white, Not Quite Navy DP (from retired hostess pack)
Ink: black, not quite navy
Accessories: markers, versamark pen (colored in letters on word), 1 3/4" circle punch, So Saffron Grosgrain ribbon (Sale-a-bration ribbon: Contact me today to get it FREE!)

Split Negative Zebra!
How cute is this card? I sent this to my mom for her birthday. I love the regal rose, black and white combination. If you look closely you will notice on my technique card the image didn't line up exactly, for the card I just trimmed it. I am not perfect so don't be hard on yourself if yours comes out a little off too!

I got the idea for this super cute Zebra from several different samples on Splitcoast! Thanks SCS stamper for the inspiration!

Stamps: Zoofari, On Your Birthday
Ink: Basic Black, Regal Rose, Whisper White Craft
Paper: Regal Rose, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: paper cutter, large oval, wide oval, regal 5/8" grosgrain ribbon
