Got a little card to share with you today.
Made this one last week when I just needed a little bit of recharge/refuel creative time. Never got around to sharing it so I am today.
(Insert dramatic effect.)
The little bird is from Julie Ebersole’s Twelve Days stamp set for Ellen Hutson. There’s a little number included on the stamp that I just masked off with tape before inking the stamp and stamping.
Nobody die of shock or anything, but I used MARKERS (… yes, the marker challenged girl…) to color the cutie in. I have been messing with markers more than usual lately. It remains a sweet surprise when things turn out.😉
The words are from Julie’s Hello Gorgeous set, also from Ellen Hutson.
And the circles and backgrounds? Cut those with a couple dies from My Favorite Things – Wonky Stitched Circles STAX and Snow Drifts Cover-Up. And the sequins? A mix from Pretty Pink Posh, of course.
Alright. That’s what I have for you. Good to see you all again. I’ll be back again later, gators. Take care.

So let me show you what I’ve got.
Ta-da! I played around with the new Boob Tubes dies that work perfectly with the coordinating Boob Tubes stamp set.
I wanted to do something different so I cut and stamped three TVs and stacked them up. I used Paper Smooches’ class Party Posse stamp set to the stamp the critters onto the screens.
To give the card a little dimension, I applied glossy accents the TV buttons, as well as on the critters eyes and noses. That gives them just the right amount of pop, in my opinion.
Well, that’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. Hope to see you again soon. (I hope.)
Sharing something other than a card today. Thought I’d share a couple of planner pages.
Let’s be honest, guys! Some weeks, I just don’t feel like decorating much and go totally clean. Other weeks, I go to town.
This week was a going to town kinda week. Just needed some creative time so I took some time to decorate my pages. I think one of the nice things about decorating your planner you can be creative with purpose and get yourself thinking about the week to come. Plus, you get to use that fun stuff you’ve been wanting to use! Love that.
Did the bulk of my decorating for these pages with stamps from Technique Tuesday. I also used some stickers (letters and cute stuff) and some papers from Simple Stories. The Simple Stories goods were definitely a fun way to add a pop of color or two… or three or four… wink!
I did add a couple pieces of paper for lists onto the spread and clipped them on so I could write on them as the week goes on and pull them out when I need them. I could have just used sticky notes but I was using what was at hand and in close reach of my workplace.
Alright! That’s what I’ve got.
You’ll find a list below of the stamp sets I used.
See you again soon, friends!
Happy weekending! This post is short and sweet, but I’ve got a little something to share with you today. Short and sweet is better than nothing, right?
So… yep… meet today’s card.
Just a bunch of different things on this one. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Probably the most notable things on it are the butterfly and words from Paper Smooches… and the white tag (cut with the This Tag dies) from Technique Tuesday.
S’all I have today. Be back again later, gators.
Lots going on out here lately. Not a lot of time to share projects with you.
But got a card to share with you today.
Made this one with the new Bird Friends stamp set from Technique Tuesday. Gave the birds that funky texture by coloring them by dots (mostly) with Copic markers and then setting a little piece of paper towel soaked with Blender solution on top. It was fun to do.
I’d been thinking for awhile about stacking the birds so that’s what I did. I stamped them and then stacked. The main part of each of their little bodies was stamped and colored on a second piece of cardstock. So yeah. I didn’t actually mask. I was TOTALLY lazy. I just cut their little bodies out with my scissors and then plopped ’em onto the card. I think they turned out pretty cute though.
Alright. That’s what I have. I’ll be back at you later, gators.
I’ll see you again … sooner.😉
