Today’s card (9-12)

Hi guys!

Got another card to share with you today. This is one I made a bit back for Technique Tuesday with their new Echinacea stamp set and coordinating craft dies.

A handmade card by Teri for Technique Tuesday // terisplace.wordpress.com

I am far from a coloring expert, but there’s just something about the flowers in this set that really made me want to color. And so … I did. 😉

Can you believe it? I used markers and it looks… looks… alright! 🙂 Hooray!

The papers behind the doily are just some old patterned papers from my stash-a-roo. And the doily? Well, it’s a real life paper doily from the nearest Cash-n-Carry store! I folded it in half, added a lot of adhesive and then plopped a circle of patterned paper on top of it before adding the stamped flower.

I felt like the card needed a little something extra so I tossed on a couple sequins. Sequins. I’m a fan. They definitely are a hard habit to break.

Alright, guys! That’s all I have for now. Be back later, gators.

Today’s card (9-6)

Hi guys!

Another day. Another stop at the blog with another card-a-roo.

Ta-da!

Ok. So here’s the deal: I had so much fun a bit back playing with the Funny Farm Crew stamp set from Your Next Stamp that I felt like making another card with it. The little critters just slay me! So, so fun.

I stamped three critters, colored them in with markers and fussy cut them out with my scissors. Tedious and yet totally worth it! I love the look.

I cut a card panel to fit on the front of my card and die-cut a circle out of it. Then I arranged the animals as you see! That blue behind the circle is ink I just sponged liberally onto the card base. For a little extra pop, I applied some Nuvo Crystal Drops (in white) along the circle’s edge. I like what it adds

The words are from a stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. They have such lovely sentiments.

Alrighty! No more to say today. I’ll be back again in a bit, friends. See you soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

STAMPtember rectangle

Hi guys!

It’s STAMPtember time over at Simon Says Stamp! Once again, they’ve turned September into a stamp-tastic celebration of all things stampy by releasing all kinds of stamps and partnering up with several manufacturers to release even more stamps.

I was tickled as could be to find an envelope in my mailbox a bit back from my pals at SSS with the new Artsy Shapes set, a stamp set they just released for STAMPtember.  (Thanks, Heidi!)

Couldn’t resist making a couple cards with the set.

Meet No. 1, and meet No. 2.

These were pretty simple to make! I cut panels of watercolor paper out to fit onto a standard size card and then stamped several of the shapes from the set with Staz-on (waterproof ink) onto watercolor cardstock. Then I just colored them in with watercolors.

I also stamped a phrase onto each panel with Simon’s recently released Encouraging Words stamp set. The typography goes nicely, I think, with the Artsy Shapes set.

Anyhoo, that’s all I’ve got in me today! Be back later, gators.
