Technique Tuesday | Keep Calm and Turn 29 Again

Technique Tuesday Birthday

Today’s Technique Tuesday feature highlights one of my favorite stamp sets from the CHA Winter 2013 release! I love the “Keep Calm and…” meme, and Technique Tuesday has done some really fun stamps with it recently. Designer Annette Allen got to work with the birthday set that they released at CHA Winter 2013, called Turn 29.

Technique Tuesday Keep Calm

Two sentiment options and whole ton of elements make this a set you can use over and over.

Annette used another recent trend – neon – to brighten up her card and make it festive. Stamping some of the designs multiple times (like the presents and the banners) in multiple colors gives the appearance of the card having more elements than it actually does.

Washi tape makes a quick border that helps tie together some of the neon colors in the stamped elements.

Supplies | Stamps: Technique Tuesday (Turn 29). Cardstock: Neenah (white). Ink: Hero Arts (Neon Pink, Neon Blue, Neon Green, Neon Yellow and Neon Orange). Adhesive: Scotch (ATG), American Crafts (foam). Washi Tape: Recollections.

Designer: Annette Allen

Annette started card making in 1997, when a neighbor invited her to a Stampin’ Up! party while she was living in Germany. She has since started a blog and taken part in many design teams. Annette has been published in Paper Crafts Magazine, Designed To Color, Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine and Papercraft Inspirations. To learn more about Annette, visit her blog, My Clever Creations.
