Got a couple cards to share with you today. And I might as well just say it: Brace yourselves. MARKERS came out. Yes, my friends, Copic markers came out.
Yes, how many times have I told you I am not so savvy in the marker department? Yes. I know. Shocking. Yes. Indeed. Markers really did come out. So check this out… while you are still breathing. 😉
This is card #1.
And this is card #2.
Yes, I actually colored with markers. And…. I liked it. 🙂
So I actually was really inspired by the new Work Out stamp set (and coordinating Exercise Girls dies) from Simon Says Stamp! I saw this sweet girl and was like, “Yeah, I can only do this stamp right by trying to color her” so I did.
I think she turned out ok with purple and green hair do’s. 😉 I think I will be daring next time and try for a realistic hair color, but then again… I kinda like the non-traditional stuff.
By the way, I adhered the girls to panels I cut with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Journaling Card dies. Let’s just put it out there: The dies haven’t been seeing much action in my scrapbooks lately, but they are still pretty darn awesome to use to make elements for cards with… in my professional opinion and all.
Alright, so that’s all for today. I’ll be back again later! Thanks for stopping by!
Another card to share today.
Another card made just for the fun of having fun.
Created this guy mostly with products from the Craft Market collection from Crate Paper. I’m a fan of Crate Paper so several pieces of the collection had to be mine when the collection surfaced at the local craft store. (Insert evil laugh here. Bahahahahahah!) Love it so much.
The thanks word was cut with a die from Studio Calico. It is a pretty thin die so I used an old trick from the Scrapbook Dark Ages to adhere it to my card. What’s that, you ask? Well, it’s this: Squeeze glob of glue on scratch paper. Use toothpick to pick up small dabs of glue to dab gently on die-cut. 😉 Works great for thin dies.
So that’s what I have for you today. I’ll be back again later, gators.
Just playing today! I haven’t really had a lot of time to just play in a few weeks.
Saw the Stripes challenge on the AEIHeartU Challenge blog and really wanted to give it a go… so I did. 🙂 Here’s what I came up with.
So I cut the bottles with the Bottle It – Up Elle-ments dies from Avery Elle. I cut actually cut the bottles each two times and then I cut down the second one to make the stripes. Sorta kinda a different way to add stripes.
The words and the vegetation are from Bottle It Up stamp set.
So there you have it. 😉
And glad I played! I really wanted to play!
See you again soon, y’all!
I’m excited today to be taking part in another challenge with the My Favorite Things Design Team. We’re having fun … for the fun of having fun… with MFT’s Cover-up Die-namics!
The Cover-Ups are awesome! They are designed to fit on a standard A2 size card! They are great to use on their own and to pair together with other products.
So I’ve got a couple cards to share with you today that I used multiple Cover-Up dies on. Can you handle it? (Wink!) OK, let’s do this.
This is card #1.
So I made the background by layering together dies cut with a couple Cover-Up dies – Stripes and Jumbo Dot. Put the Dot one on the bottom and the striped one on top. I tried a couple different color combos before I eventually landed with the hot pink and black combo.
And this is card #2.
Once again, I layered a couple panels cut with Cover-Up Die-namics. This time, I brought together the Grid and Pegboard Cover-Up Die-namics. I love how they look together.
I wanted the sentiment to look somewhat unique so I die-cut it twice and then layered it together, slightly off-setting it as I adhered it to the card.
And this is card #3.
I wanted to do something different with this one so I used the Proof Positive Cover-Up with the Square Grid Cover-Up. I think they look pretty fun together.
OK, so here’s a list of MFT supplies I used to make this card:

Thanks for stopping by today, all!
Woot! It’s for another Creative Challenge with the My Favorite Things Design Team. And this time, we’re playing with stencils!
Woo-to-the-hoo! MFT carries a ton of fantastic stencils, and they are awesome.
I used a couple of my favorites to make today’s cards: Stencil Stripes and Stencil Large Polka Dots. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.
So meet Card #1.
I used the Stripes stencil to make that white, pink and orange panel. So what I did was set the stencil at an angle part way onto a piece of white cardstock. I inked over the open portion of the stencil with pink ink.
Then I flipped the stencil over, lined it up with my inking and applied some more ink. This time, I used orange ink. See how the lines kinda run together? You can get an idea of how I shifted the stencil when I set it onto the panel.
I think I like how this one turned out… a lot! Hope you do too. (Insert: Pressure! Hee! Just kidding.)
And this is Card #2.
I brought out my sweet friend, the Large Polka Dots stencil, for this one. I made that white panel with it. I just set the stencil down and then applied orange and pink ink to it.
Now, you might wondering about that orange strip that goes right over it? Yes. That one. I got a little carried away by applying too much ink so it covered up the messy spots. Yes. Secret’s out. I’m not perfect. Dude. Tragedy. 😉
So that’s what I have for you today, friends!
Here’s a list of MFT products I used to make these cards:

This is today’s card!
The scoop behind this year? Yeah. I was cleaning up my desk earlier and had a few things out from Simple Stories’ Say Cheese II collection left on it. So, of course, I had to procrastinate (<—– Yes, just had to) and make a card. 😉
Every single thing on this little guy is from the collection – stickers, die-cuts, papers… the works.
By the way, I had a few other cards the other day over on the Simple Stories blog that were made with this collection. I’d be plum tickled if you’d check them out.
Thanks for stopping by today, guys. I’ll be back again later.
