June Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday | We Heart Sunshine (Includes Video Overview)

Welcome to the June Studio AE Blog Hop From Technique Tuesday.

Technique Tuesday offers a monthly stamp club that features a limited edition stamp set designed by me each month. You can check out past stamp sets (some are still available) here.

Say hello to this month's stamp set: Fun In the Sun

DIGITAL MEMORY KEEPER? Theses same designs are included in Summer Outline Brushes and Stamps.

Here's the page I created using this set:

This month I put together a video overview while the layout was in progress. Take a look:




We Heart Sunshine | Technique Tuesday Studio AE June 2013 Blog Hop from Ali Edwards on Vimeo.

For today's layout I started with a great piece of pattern paper from BasicGrey's Hey You 12x12 paper pad.

If you are like me you've probably collected one or two (or a hundred) different sets of 3x4 Project Life cards. One of the things I love about them is that they can totally be used on 12x12 layouts and not just in Project Life. Here I used some of the 3x4 grid cards paired with 3x4 photos. On top of the photos I added some printed vellum from Kelly Purkey's April/May Project Life kit from Simon Says Stamp.

Playing with some spay ink/mist this time as a background for my embossed stamps.

I embossed these two first two stamps (with Rouge Zing) on top of white cardstock that had been sprayed with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine (primrose) + Studio Calico Mister Huey (sunset).

After doing that I decided that they needed a bit more yellow/orange rather than so much pink/red so I sprayed both the banners I'd already cut out and sprayed the paper again with Mustard Color Shine.

I cut each of those banners from the cardstock and adhered them onto the grid cards using foam dots.

Over the seam where the photos and the grid cards meet I added yellow/white Vellum Tape from Little Yellow Bicycle, the cork tab (also from Little Yellow Bicycle and stitched in place), two light green/cream letter stickers for each of our initials, and a stamped sentiment from that great little Dear Lizzy rolling stamp.

The red stars are from Michaels.
