Tidbit Tuesday-Exciting News!

Hello Everybody!

I have some exciting news to share with you all today!  I am now on the Design Team for Technique Tuesday!

If you aren't familiar with Technique Tuesday-let me tell you about it!  The first Tuesday of each month a new technique is posted by Mynnette the owner.  You make a card using that technique and post it to the blog.  There are badges and sometimes even prizes!  How fun is that!

So let me show you my first card.  The technique for this card is to use re-inkers with stamps.  You can go here for the instructions.  For best results with the card-the instructions says to use stamps that have flat parts.  Keep scrolling, and I will show you the stamps I used :)

Here are the re-inkers that I used.  They are from Close to My Heart.  I bought them specifically for this challenge and also a white paint that I can blend them into to make paint (but that's a another post for another day).  

I used these foam stamps.  I have a box of them and haven't used them in forever!  The stamps for this card are from Making Memories.  You may remember that they used to sell their paint with them.  This technique works great with flat surfaces of stamps.  The majority of my rubber stamp collection is outlines so that's when I thought-ah ha!  What about these?  And they work perfectly!

Here are a couple of flowers I made before I cut them out for my card.  I love how different they are using the same technique.  And of course now I want more colors! :)

Here's another angle of my card.  The brown paper is embossed with a Tim Holtz woodgrain texture fade and then I used a gold paint on the raised embossed parts.  The centers of the flowers are from Robin's Eggs.

The paper I just kind of swiped through the baby wipe with the re-inker ink so that it would match my dragonflies and flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope to see your card at Technique Tuesday!  Until next time my friends...get out those re-inkers! :)
