I have been using mostly Stampin' Up! stamps because I really like the quality, and that's what my friends use, and I'm a demonstrator and I get a great discount. However, recently I was asked to be a card instructor at Memory Creek in Farmington, Minnesota and I can't very well be teaching card classes using my Stampin' Up! stamps. The owner of the store, Ann Manthey, has also asked me to sell some of my cards in her store, and I can't sell any Stampin' Up! images either. So because of these things, I had to search out some alternatives. I came across Technique Tuesday and instantly loved the way they stamped. They are not rubber like SU, and I have just found out that they are not acrylic either. They look like acrylic stamps, but Technique Tuesday claims they are not acrylic, and according to the nice young lady that I spoke with, they aren't giving away their secret sauce recipe. So I have no idea what these wonderful little stamps are made of, but I love them all the same. There are so many stamps out there on the market, and some of them stamp like crap, so it is always nice to find a stamp that works good.
Now don't get me wrong . . . I do not plan on giving up my Stampin' Up! stamps anytime soon, but it is nice to know that we do have choices. And it's nice to know that there are other stamps out there just as nice as our beloved Stampin' Up! So if you find yourself in a situation where you can't use SU products or you just want to try something new, I recommend you give Technique Tuesday a try. I think you will like them.
So for this little card I used my Just Picked set from Technique Tuesday. The card base is Bazill paper and the dp is from Bo Bunny's Shabby Princess line. The ribbon is from SU and the brads are from Karen Foster.
I hope everyone is having a great week, and thank you for stopping by.
Big stamping hugs.
