New Technique Tuesday Feature!

Hello friends!
I am sharing a NEW feature in my blog.
Recently I got a hold of some goodies from the friendly folks over Technique Tuesday.
I thought of this idea to feature their products and TT people loved it!
you have my heart

That is....
How about sharing a TECHNIQUE on a TUESDAY?
And because the TT folks are super nice, they offer to give out a prize to my readers/followers!!
That means YOU get a chance to play with TT goodies for FREE!
s
Cascading Border Die HERE (Technique Tuesday Shop)
 With that, I am sharing Die Cutting Technique.


I saw it on Simon Says Stamp

Technique Tuesday CASCADING HEARTS BORDER DIY Steel Dies 02615 — $14.99

02615

Cascading Heart Border Die is simply one of a kind and can be used all year round.
you have my heart

Special features:
Inlaid die Cutting: the heart mesh with the border and inlaid die cutting provides a seamless border/transition
Partial Die Cutting: normally you will have to cut only part of the die with paper. In this case, this die does it all for you.  I only needed to choose the right paper!

you have my heart

Use paper creatively: the vellum and glitter paper are not BFF with each other. However, using them both sparingly, they can bring out the BEST of each other!

you have my heart  

Add a strip of something something...: in this case, I added a thin piece of striped design paper. It seems to help with the stamped sentiment!!? Yes? I like it!
Go with the flow: there is absolutely no movement involved in this. However, you can sense the subtle motion from the placement of sequins and hearts.

Technique Tuesday offers FREE US shipping with order over $75.

Check out the awesome sales HERE.

 You can find the Cascading Heart Border here.
you have my heart

I hope that you are inspired by some of the things I share. 
Be sure to stop by to see what technique that I use NEXT TUESDAY!
Please leave a comment for chance to win a prize from Technique Tuesday..
 I will draw winner after March 6th feature! 

The following is a listing of  Technique Tuesday products that will be featured.

Those vellum pieces seem to melt into the the glitter panel so smoothly. I love the look of the
hearts cascading down the card. So pretty!

The gold glitter paper. and the rosy tones of the alcohol inks are perfect together. Combining them with Cascading Hearts Border die is brilliant. You can almost see the hearts and sequins fluttering by.
Will look forward to Technique Tuesdays!

Hi Virginia, That technique gives such a WOW factor to your card, just love your card for today, it's awesome, thanks as always for great post.

Lots of drama with this card...the juxtaposition of the alcohol inked vellum and the glittery cardstock lends itself to it. Besides the sequins & freestanding hearts the die, itself, creates motions as it dances down the card. The subtle stripe on the left balances the design perfectly.

pcm said...
