March Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

AE_ThankYouForTrying_CloseUp

Welcome to the February 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 the stamp set I designed for this month: Wow

DIGITAL MEMORY KEEPERS | A similar set of digital word art is available here: Oh Yes Sentiment Boxes

Here's a look at the layout I created this month:

I like to use stamps to create background patterns. Sometimes, as was the case here, they become a very subtle texture under the star vellum.

Here's a step by step:

AE_ThankYouForTrying1

1. I used Momento Luxe ink in Pear Tart and the Wow stamp set to create a background. I  added three of the stamps that come with this set to a block and then stamped them over and over again to create a background pattern. I wanted it to not be too dark so I stamped onto another piece of paper first and then stamped onto this backgound cardstock about three times in a row before adding more ink.

2. Cut star vellum to 5.5 inches x 8.5 inches and adhere with just a bit of rolling adhesive to keep it in place.

3. Add a 5.5 inch x 8.5 inch piece of white cardstock to the top.

4. Add a 4x6 photo. I printed mine here at home using an Epson PictureMate printer. I used RadLab to create the color effect.

5. Cut "thank you for trying" using green vellum (included in this Lemon Lush vellum pack from Studio Calico) and the Silhouette.

6. Run the title through a sewing machine.

7. Add a vellum phrase sticker to the left edge of the photo.

8. Use a 1.5 inch circle punch to cut out the "son" circle from this set of journal cards: Family Cards By Paislee Press.

9. Stitch around the outer edge with a sewing machine.

10. Add a label sticker.

11. Add three wood grain stars.

11. Use a rolling date stamp to add the date.

12. Add journaling to the label sticker.

One of the things I played around with on this layout was creating an animated gif to show the steps of building this page. It's not exactly one step at a time but I thought it might be fun for you to get a peek at the order in which I tend to add things to my layouts.
