Cath Edvalson & Technique Tuesday Blog Hop



Hello, and welcome from the Technique Tuesday blog!

I’m so excited to be part of this very special hop for  Cath Edvalson

Cath’s new stamps and dies are a lot of fun and so reflective of her personality and warm heart! It was such a pleasure to create the projects shown here!  You can Cath’s delightful new line right here at Ellen Hutson LLC!



(feat. Garden of Life Stamp Set, Garden Leaves & Garden Flowers Dies)

 The shapes of these flowers and leaves were so fun to watercolor!



I copper embossed the images for this one and then washed some Distress Stains overtop in subtle hues–die cutting the leaves from vellum card stock and adding the little wood veneer heart was the perfect embellishment!

So, did ya’ know there is fab swag to be had, as well?  Yup!  Technique Tuesday is going to give away these awesome prizes:

  • One person will receive a package consisting of all 5 of Cath’s new products
  • Technique Tuesday will also give away two $25 gift certificates

The three winners will be chosen at random from all the comments left during the hop on all the blog stops. To be eligible to win, blog hoppers need to just leave a comment any of the blog hop stops. The more comments you leave during the hop,  the more chances you have to win.

Y’all have through midnight PST on Sept. 16th, 2015, to leave comments. The three winners will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on Sept. 18th, 2015. 


Your next stop is the wondermous Laura O’Donnell

If you get lost or want to check out the whole blog hop list just stop by the Technique Tuesday blog.

Enjoy all the eye candy!  WOOT!  And, warmest congratulations to Cath!

Warning: You need a sense of humor for this one…

Making a human WEB 001


My daughter Hayley’s sister-in-law–actually, all her in-laws–have a great sense of humor, and when she and her husband announced they were expecting, I just knew she would get the funny behind this card.  We’re so happy for them, and that our granddaughter Lilly will soon have a cousin!

I used my Dymo Label Maker to finish the inside… *chuckle*
