Technique Tuesday One Layer Cards & Giveaway

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a couple cards created using some products from Technique Tuesday. 

One layer cards are not necessarily in my wheelhouse, but I enjoy making them from time to time.  I love the simplicity you can achieve and I feel like they are often the most sophisticated looking cards I create.

For these cards I'm featuring both the Sweet Succulents and Perfect Picture stamp set (unfortunately this stamp set appears to be sold out right now).

For the first card, I first stamped the frame image in a light tan color (this was Crumb Cake from Stampin' Up).  Then I created a mask for the frame itself by stamping the image on a large post it and cutting out the inside of the frame.

Once that was done, I placed the mask over the frame and stamped the succulent image in the same ink.  Then I colored the succulents with Copics and added a sentiment from the Picture Perfect set.

For my next card, I stamped the same succulent image in black twice, at the top and bottom of my card to fame the area for the sentiment.

I added subtle accents using C1 and C3 Copics - basically just adding a bit of color where shadows would be.  This was really quick and easy, but I think it has a big impact.

The very kind and generous folks at Technique Tuesday are also sponsoring a giveaway.  One lucky someone will win a stamp and coordinating die of their choice from Technique Tuesday.  To be entered to win, simply be a blog follower and leave a comment with what you would choose if you won.

A winner will be announced on Monday.  Good luck!


  1. Love your clean and simple makes, Miriam.
    Somehow I don't have many Technique Tuesday stamps, although I admire their greenhouse stamps and their punny sentiments. If I were to win, I would choose the new Chicken Family set. Love that it can be used for so many different occasions.

  2. Pretty cards! Love the succulent designs!
    I'd choose the Delightful Daisy stamp and die set!

  3. I love Turtle Trio Crafting Dies!! Thank you!

  4. Love the framed card,
    great masking. Both
    cards are lovely. I
    would love to get the
    Lorenzo the Llama die
    and matching stamp set.

  5. That’s a very elegant card ! If I win..... oh my goodness ! That’s gonna be so hard to choose ONE thing ! I really love their planner lineup, but also all their animals stamps sets.... and so many more! And the crafting dies collection !!! Oh my ! So many I’d like !!

  6. I don't own any succulent stamps and these ones look gorgeous, so would love to buy them with the matching dies. I don't own any of their stamps and just spent the last 10 mins looking at their products, talk about gorgeous. They have lots of beautiful floral stamps, especially love the rannunculas!!

  7. I really like their design of the succulent stamp and you showcased it beautifully. I have a few of their 'pun' stamps but nothing of their florals. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  8. Great designs with these succulents. I like the framing on the first one. I would pick the Chicken Family set.

  9. Awesome job on all your cards they are adorable! I would love to win the Lily Wishes Stamp Set.

  10. Both cards are beautiful! My favorite is the second one, so elegant! If I win I would choose the stamp set you used today, Thanks for the chance!

  11. Wow!!! Both your cards are very elegant and so beautiful!

    If I won, I would love so much the set you used today, the Sweet Succulents Stamp and die sets! Thanks for this chance!

  12. Love the use of the succulents. I think
    the second is my favorite - like the
    simple coloring.
    My stamp/die of choice would be Felix
    the Frog from the August 2017 release.
    Fun sentiments. thanks for the
