I am so fortunate to have 6 AMAZING ladies on the Amy Doodle Stamp Company Design Team! Today I thought for Technique Tuesday I could share their beautiful work with you, as well as their delightful blogs! I hope your inspired by these beautiful ladies as much as I am!
I know it's not technically the Christmas Season yet, but I couldn't take it anymore! I love Christmas and so I just had to create a Christmas card. And you know me . . . I'm always looking for an excuse to use rainbow colors, and I just happen to come across this! It's perfect!
What could be better than rainbow and Christmas? Only the cutest little penguin stamp! It's "Penguin Lights" from my company The Amy Doodle Stamp Company. I colored him with Copics and added Glossy Accents to his eyes as well as the Christmas Lights!
Colorful, bright and blend-able? That would be the Set of spectacular Tombow pens I'm talking about! I used them to color this adorable Stampendous stamp "Snowy Sled". The Dual Brush Brights Pen set comes with 9 gorgeous colors, and a blender pen. The brush tips on these pens work like a paintbrush to create fine, medium or bold strokes which is perfect for coloring small and large stamps! The water-based ink is blendable!
Don't forget that there are prizes to be won as well!Click on the image below for details!
Aren't they adorable on their little sled?

I can't believe I get my 2 favorite products for this blog hop . . . Stampendous & Spellbinders! Such a dream! I am both a fanatic for Stampendous stamps and amazing Spellbinder cutting dies . . . what could be better? For my Christmas themed card I thought the Santa Collage stamp was the perfect partner for the Bitty Blossom, and Label 36 cutting dies!
For this card I used Distress Watercolor pens to create those blended Christmas colors! To create your own card, you'll need:
Step 1: Stamp Santa Collage onto watercolor paper with black Archival ink. Using Distress Markers add color to stamped image as shown , and spread color with water and paintbrush. Let Dry.
Step 2: Cover car with red patterned paper. Cut 5" x 6" dark green cardstock and glue centered onto the card. Using the largest Spellbinders label cutting die, cut 2 labels from the gold glitter cardstock. Glue one label horizontal onto the center of the card. Cut the second label in half, and glue vertically 1/4" from top and bottom of card as shown. Cut stamped image to 3 1/2" x 4 3/4", and use blending tool to add Barn Door Distress Ink to edges. Mat on red cardstock leaving 1/8" border and foam tape to card.
Step 3: Die cut 3 medium Spellbinders Bitty Blossom from red cardstock. Follow package instructions to create red roses. Glue to card front as shown. Die cut 3 leaves from dark green cardstock and glue around roses.
Step 4: Stamp Sant Collage stamp onto watercolor paper with black Archival ink. Using smallest Spellbinders label cutting die cut out the word "Christmas" from stamped image. Use blending tool to add Barn Door Distress Ink to edges, and foam tape to card as shown.

What is more Fall than fall trees, an old barn, and a scarecrow? I saw this photo and instantly thought I've got to make a wall hanging for Fall! I think that fall is the prettiest time of year. All those bright yellows, reds, and oranges set against a grey sky...SO PRETTY! Of course I had to use digi stamp "Scarecrow Bob" because he's perfect for a Fall wall hanging! Happy Monday everyone!
