Tek Tuesday a bit different…

Hey bloggers!  Hope you’ve been well lately.  Kelly and I have kind of had a bit of a hiatus as you may have noticed…  I must admit, it was a much needed break for us and we feel a lot better and refreshed now!

We have some new Design Team Members that we can’t wait to introduce you to this Friday when we have our New Release Blog Hop (you’ll have to be sure to join us!).

Kelly and I have decided to do Tek Tuesday ourselves since we need to get back into the crafty side of things and well, we like hanging out with you once in a while!  Hopefully, this will motivate us to “get r done”!


This is a card I made using a Technique Tuesday stamp & a couple stamps from a set I got but can’t remember who by.  


I really like the way the little angel looks.





This card was made with an Inkadinkado set, some Sakura stardust pens, Copics, nesties, flowers, brads, rhinestones.  Not sure if this paper is BoBunny?



Here’s the inside too.




041  This is a card Kelly and I made for a shower she was going to.  I didn’t like it in the beginning, but it turned out pretty good!  Not sure who made these flower stamps, but I love em… stampendous made the little blue circle stamp and Hampton did the sentiment… used some rhinestones for the dots, hemp to add some texture and ribbon/paper from my stash.


 Another card, this one using a cuttlebug embossing folder, Offray ribbon, brad from my stash, new fancy tag spellbinder die, Basic Grey paper and Studio G Sentiment.047

Here’s the inside too… I actually got a Martha Stewart punch set this weekend too (along with those super cute Spellbinder tag dies!)

I just love this card… think it turned out great!


Unfortunately, my sons’ girlfriends grandmother passed away this weekend and so I made this for him to give to her.  I also advised him that a flower would be a very nice gesture (he’s 17) and he was so sweet that he got her a violet plant!  Not really what I meant, but very sweet.  Simple card, but beautiful look I think… very CAS.


So Kelly’s mother had a birthday and Kelly made her this beautiful card using the Lilies from The Cafe Store printed out 3 times in different sizes.  I love the inking on the vellum behind the main image… very soft and chic.  It’s amazing how inking can take something to the next level!


And last, but not least is this little cutie Kelly made for a niece of hers who had a birthday (10th).  I LOVE this card… the colours are perfect which must’ve been hard for Kelly since she has an aversion to pink (good thing she’s got boys!)  She coloured a Ketto with her watercolour pencils, punched and inked some flowers (see, inking again… LOVE IT!) and that pink flower is from Technique Tuesday again… I adore it.

So now that we’ve bombarded you with our cards… LOL… we’ll get on with a Tutorial that I thought was fabulous and something very useable…

Slider Card by Maria Bell (hope you don’t mind me sharing!)

MariaBellSlider1  I think this is so neat and would make a great gift for anyone really!  I’ve yet to try it, but I really do want to and maybe next week I’ll have MariaBellSliderone for you… I think it might actually make a great Mother’s Day gift from the kids to Grandma!!!

Maria has some fabulous tutorials as well as lots of free cut files for you to create amazing cards, boxes and other things… you definitely want to check out her site… I LOVE it there.

Well, that’s it for this Tek Tuesday… hope you found something useful that gets your mojo going and if you have any questions, let me know and I’ll do my best to answer you!

Take care… see you Friday for the New Release Hop with our new DT!!!

Happy crafting,

Kendra (&Kelly)
