Celebrating Cath + Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I'm in a very special blog hop today:


I am super-duper thrilled to be sharing projects using the new Technique Tuesday stamps and dies by Cath Edvalson! :) You can check out the new stamps and dies HERE. Aren't they fabulous?

To celebrate the release, there's a special hop today. You should be coming from Kimberly's blog, or if you want to start from the beginning, the Technique Tuesday blog.

Here's what I made:

For You

I made a set of cards with the inlaid die-cutting technique. First, I die-cut the Garden Flowers dies in white and trimmed down the base flower to make  a backing. Next, I used old Mint Julep BasicGrey papers to die-cut the outline flower. My Big Shot got a work-out! I know Cath likes homespun designs, and these papers reminded me of her. :)

For You


I in-laid the pieces and made a couple of flowers at once. It's not a 10-minute card, but this technique is great for card sets (and using up 6x6 paper pads).

Next, I stamped a leaf from the Garden of Life stamp set and stamped a few yellow flowers in the background. The sweet sentiment is also from the set. This die is *perfect* for this technique!


For You


Here's my next card:

Friend


This card uses the same stamps and dies for a very different look. I started by stamping the leaves from the Garden of Life set. I partially colored the leaves with Copics and fussy cut them. I love the boldness of these stamps! Next, I die-cut the Garden of Life flower base die on vellum and heat embossed the flower.

I layered a Citrus Bliss paper and a chipboard frame. For the sentiment, I die-cut the "friend" sentiment from the Garden of Life set in charcoal grey. Here's a close-up:
