WCMD Blog Hop - Technique Tuesday

Good morning! The World Card Making Day festivities continue! Next up is a fun blog hop with Technique Tuesday featuring a special release for today called You're Owlsome - read all the way to the bottom to see how you can snag it for free - as well as how to enter the giveaway for a chance at a Technique Tuesday gift certificate!


But first - here is my card using this darling new stamp set and coordinating dies:


I kind of have a thing for pattern paper - and I long ago learned that it was better to use it than to hoard it. So...there is nothing I love better than layering up a ton of it on one card like this! This pattern paper is from an older Echo Park fall paper pad - but really, you can do this with any pattern paper! I love using from either the same pad, or within the same company, since many of the colors and patterns work well together that way. I also tend to add adhesive only to the centers of the pieces of cardstock, and intentionally curl up the edges of the paper. This is a good way to magnify the layered effect a little extra!


I stamped and colored up these sweet images, die cut them with their coordinating dies, and added a stamped sentiment from the set underneath as well.


Soooo...here is the sale info - and how you can snag this stamp set for free this weekend!

  4. Love those gorgeous layers of patterned paper and how you matched your owl colors to it! It's funny that the idea of adhering only the center has never crossed my mind. It does give a really nice effect.
