Product Showcase: Technique Tuesday








{Reported by Ashley Harris}



Stamps. I would have to say that I love to stamp. Am I fabulous at it? No. Would I like to be? Absolutely!! I love the images you can create with stamps. One of the really great companies out there for clear stamps is Technique Tuesday. Their stamps are created with the highest quality polymer and have a huge array of images and fonts. They also have chipboard that they make called Technique Tiles. They feel lighter than your average chipboard and have many uses. These are the stamps that I worked with for this article:








What I liked:
1. Image quality is outstanding.
2. The stamp itself is sturdy and of great quality.
3. The ability to manipulate these stamps is fantastic! I can bend to my hearts content, but they still keep their shape when I am finished.

What I disliked:
1. The ink discolors the stamps. (Please know that this is completely normal with clear stamps, I just don't like it.)



What I made:

4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Supplies: Cardstock Bazzill White Bazzill Basics, Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants, Stamps: O Christmas Tree Technique Tuesday, Ribbon: Misc, Ink: Chalk Ink by Clearsnap


5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Supplies: Patterned Paper: Upsy Daisy, Tag: Creative Imaginations, Chipboard: Technique Tiles by Technique Tuesday, Spray Ink: Maya Mists by May Road, Ink: Chalk Ink by Clearsnap, Floral Pick: JoAnn Fabric, Ribbon: Misc


Supplies: Pillow gift box purchase at Emma's Paperie, Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye Colorful Christmas line, Punch: Fiskars 2" Circle Punch and Marvvy Uchida Scalloped Circle, Stamp: Holly Jolly Christmas by Technique Tuesday, Ink: StazOn by Tsukineko,Glitter: Stickles by Ranger, Hemp: Misc

Overall I am really impressed with their stamps. They have great image clarity, they are durable and bottom line, I would totally buy more!

Where and How Much:
Product: O Christmas Tree, Holly Jolly Christmas,
Manufacturer: Technique Tuesday
MSRP: $9.99
Available Online: Scrapbook.com, Blue Moon Scrapbooking, Emma's Paperie

I love the Christmas tree stamp. the card you made was simple and Fabulous!

Christine said...

I have several Technique Tuesday stamps and their quality is simply outstanding. They are some of the best clear stamps I've ever used. They ink up beautifully every single time, regardless of what ink you're using. I've never had the need to prime them before use, and they also have amazing details that can sometimes be lost on the clear stamps. I especially liked how they explained the difference between good quality clear stamps versus the "not so good". Really spelled it out to me how I could tell right away which stamps were the best.

Love the stamps and really love the projects made with them!!!

Erika M. said...

I have a couple of different sets of Technique Tuesdays stamps and I'm very pleased with the quailty of the stamped images!

Carla said...

Your projects are beautiful and I love all those stamps!! My favorite would have to be the Christmas tree stamp. I could see using that stamp for next year
s Christmas cards!! I have not had the chance to try any of Technique Tuesday's stamps yet, but would love to!!

Jodee said...

Love these stamps! Would love to add them to my collection. I have used their stamps once and I thought they were awesome! Thanks so much!

Lindsay said...

I too am not that great with stamps. I don't know how to shade and texture and all that jazz. I do, however, love Technique Tuesdays! They are wonderful to work with, and I love the lines and patterns. The font is adorable. One of my faves!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Donna in MD said...

I love Technique Tuesday stamps but don't have that many. I would definitely use these sets!

Christie said...

I love TT stamps! I took a class with them last year at a CK convention and it was awesome!

Kim M said...

I love their products, they are always such superior quality. I would love to add these to my personal stamping supplies.

Joni Parker said...

I have some older sets of TT stamps and they are definately great quality. Due to finances, I have not bought any of the last few years sets. I'd love to have some new ones for my collection. Those projects you did are FAB-U-LOUS!!!

PamS said...

I love Technique Tuesday...I think that I might need my third binder to hold all those stamps I have from them. I have found that if you stamp the stamp first with VersaMark that more of the color comes off when the stamp is cleaned.

Michelle T said...

I love the Holly Jolly Christmas set - the retro look is so cute!

Shauna {SK Studios} said...

these are super cute!! i'd want them :D

ArlaMo said...

Love that Christmas tree stamp - that's one I don't have. I do love all the Ali E stamps that Technique Tuesday carries - very versatile for scrapping1

williamanddina said...

Thanks for the review! Yes, I think they'd make my list!

Heather H said...

I am fairly new to scrapping and don't have many stamps yet but it is something that I would like to use more. This sound like good quality stamps. I particularly like the Christmas tree.

Scrapycandy said...

I think these are fabulous stamps! I made my own "paper" this year with stamps but I love these stamps so much more than what I have. Thanks for sharing and Happy Holidays!

Gayle215 said...

These definitely make my wish list!

Sammie said...

I really like Technique Tuesday stamps. They're some of my favorites and the designs are so useful and versatile.

Vanessa Vasquez said...

The projects you made were super cute! Thanks for the info.

StacyC said...

I also have several Technique Tuesday stamps and love their designs. The Ali Edwards line is one of my favorites - I love her handwriting. But the Christmas tree is my favorite of the ones that you used. It is so classic looking!

Melinda AKA medialady said...

I have a few of the Tech Tues. stamps and love them.

Gabi said...

I have been eying several stamp sets from Technique Tuesday for awhile now. The only reason that I haven't bought any because these would be my first real set of stamps, and I'm already a paper hoarder and Thickers hoarder, and I feel like I would be a stamp and ink hoarder if I went down that road now.

However they look wonderful and they have so many versatile stamp collections. I'm eager to see what they come up with next, and what I absolutely can't live without!!!

I love that Xmas tree!!

Veronica Hugger said...

Your O Christmas Tree card is beautiful!

Melissa said...

I really like these stamps. Of course I am a HUGE Technique Tuesday fan already. I would definitely buy these. I think my favorite is the Santa. Although the Christmas tree is very cool. I am less of a snowflake fan because of the whole live in the desert, it never snows. But this tree would be an exception to my no snowflake rule.

j*e*n said...

Love these stamps--the words are my favorite! The cards you made are gorgeous. :)

Dana said...

I have a lot of their stamps and love them. Especially love that they carry Ali Edwards stamps!!

MM CUSTOM CREATIONS said...

These look pretty cute. I have a nice hoard of Christmas stamps, but I'm always on the lookout for more!

Steff said...

Love, love, love Technique Tuesday! They are my favorite clear stamps by far! The quality is awesome and I love their designs!

joni said...

Cute stuff! Love Christmas stamps and those are just adorable! Technique Tuesday always has such cute stamps!

Susan McRae said...

That snowflake tree is beautiful and love the card you made with it. I also like the sentiments with that script style.

Sandie said...

What gorgeous stamps! I especially love the christmas tree. These will definitely be on my wish list!

RAE said...

I've been a fan of theirs for a long time. Clear stamps rock! I love that tree and who doesn't love snowflakes!

btw...yep, staining does happen and doesn't hurt the stamp at all. In fact, I prefer it b/c then if I drop my stamp on the floor I can find it easier when there is a bit of color stain on it.

Rebecca said...

Those are adorable! Some of the cutest Christmas stamps I've seen; I'll definitely be adding these to my list! :)

Kiwi The Kreator said...

Those look like a must have scrap product!!!

grammyscraps said...

Yes, these would definitely make my Christmas list!! Especially that tree...love how you use it.

Peggy said...

I love to make Christmas cards so of course they would make my wish list. I love acrylic stamps even if they do discolor. They take up so much less room than the rubber on wood blocks. Thank you for sharing. Merry Christmas and God bless.

~~Mia~~ said...

I love to stamp too, but I'm not awesome at it....I totally love that Santa stamp though ~ he is away too much fun!

kgscrapper said...

Great review!! The first clear stamps I ever bought were Technique Tuesday. Those two sets are still my favorite most used stamps. AThe images are quite crisp especially for clear stamps. I have used their chipboard too. One of my favoite features of TT Chipboards is...IT"S WHITE!!! You can ink it and you get just the color you want!! These are some great Christmas stamps, I would love to win a set.

Tanstar said...

I would seriously consider these, the tree is just so gorgeous, and I can see it's versatility. I love the font on the christmas words. I must admit yes I do like wooden stamps but these are very cute.

Melissa said...

These stamps are adorable. I have just started using stamps and don't have any Technique Tuesday brand. Thanks for the review.

Merrilee said...

bumblesnbees said...

I am not familiar w/ their stamps-I thought that it was a blog for techniques, lol! Thanks for the chance!

JoLynn said...

Technique Tuesday is also a generous company. They have had specialty sets for causes like breast cancer awareness and autism awareness. My first experience with them was at CKC when they were REALLY generous at a crop I attended. They gave us a stamp set specially made for the crop, which made me just fall in love with them and realize that I could get a clear image from an acrylic stamp. I am thrilled to see you spotlight this great company.

Beth said...

I only have a couple TT stamps, but I have always loved their designs! I'm sure anyone would love any of these! I would!

Rebecca Ednie said...
