It's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week it's all about the super talented Tammy Tutterow! She is amazing and makes the most beautiful things. I especially love her Technique Tuesdays. So much inspiration and so many techniques that she knows how to conjure. When I visited her blog for inspiration for this week's project, I just didn't know which one to choose. Afters wandering around for a while I made my decisiond and chose the Distress Paint Linen Texture technique. The tag she made with is really amazing!
In the tutorial, Tammy uses a large background stamp with lots of solid spaces. I wanted to try the technique with the Prima Marketing Flourish stencil and Clear Emboss it Dabber. That stuff smells so great! This actually wants me to use it more often! Because it's very sticky and kind of a glue, it's wise to rinse off quickly with some soap and water. But first apply the Clear Embossing powder and heat with the Heat It tool. The rest of the instructions of this technique can be found on Tammy's blog here. I think it's so cool when you start ironing and the clear embossing comes off. It's kind of magic...
The theme of this card is the birthday of friends of mine, a couple. They celebrated their birthday together and I thought it would be fun to let that come back in the card. The Banner is an exclusive die of Simon Says Stamp along with the Simple Numbers and Mini Hearts. The banner is cut out from the My Mind's Eye Meadow paperpad. The edges I've distressed with the Pitch Black Paint Dabber.
It's probably no secret I'm crazy about the wooden Potty People and Stars. And of course the washi tape is also along for the ride. Actually I never really was a fan of letter stickers, but since the Label Letters from Tim Holtz I'm completely turned. Fortunately there are 6 sheets with letters, but I do use very often the same letters...
