Card Sets

I made several card box sets last weekend while I was away at a retreat.  I make these often...  they make great gifts!  I keep these cards VERY simple and flat so that 8 cards/envelopes fit in a box.  All sets are made with stamps from Technique Tuesday.

First Set using Happy Birthday, Monsters Ink, and Chit Chat:

Second Set using Growing Wild , Verbose, and Swanky Sentiments

Third Set using A Million and One by Ali Edwards:

These sets are on their way to my MIL who's celebrating her birthday today!  Hope she likes them!

Thanks for looking!

Technique Tuesday Stamp Party!

Hi everyone! 

Welcome to the Technique Tuesday Stamp Party!

What a great way to start a Monday morning!!  The Stamping Techs each dug into our stashes of Technique Tuesday stamps and grabbed the newest Technique Tuesday stamp set we own. For today’s hop, we are using those stamps.

Technique Tuesday offers a whole bunch of clear stamps. All of TT’s stamps are high-quality photopolymer. You can check them out by going to the TT Web site.

My card:
 I used the set Dream Big for both the sentiment and the houndstooth pattern on the bottom.

I made the background by coloring diagonally with the watercolor crayons from Technique Tuesday.  Then I took a damp sponge to soften and blend the colors.  The houndstooth was then stamped on the bottom.  I like how the colors show through with the black houndstooth pattern.

Be sure to check out the blogs of everyone taking part in today’s blog hop!
