Back again with a couple more projects to share with you that I made with some of the new goods that will debut on the Technique Tuesday website on May 1st.
Please give it up for Card No. 1.
This was a fun one to make. I used to the new Sassy Guy set to stamp all the images and words.
In full disclosure, I contributed to the set. And I must admit that I ran every saying in the set by guys as I wanted the set to have phrases that could be used on cards that would, well, make guys smile. My feelers passed the test and so the set came to be.
The patterned papers are all from my stash-a-roo. I always enjoy making my own little background with scraps and so that’s what I did here.
Meet Card No. 2.
I created this rainbow-style graduation card with the new Congrats Grad stamp set. This set is pretty cool because it’s a 4×6 set. The images and words in it are as such that you can use the set to make cards … or scrapbook pages. It’s always nice to have stamps that give you a lot of bang for the buck.
Alright! That’s it for today.
Once again, be sure to hit the New Products page on the Technique Tuesday website. ALL the new stamps and dies (not just the ones I featured) will be available on the 1st.
Also be sure to stop by the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other design team members sharing projects today.
Technique Tuesday’s next release happens on May 1st so the design team is joining the countdown fun in sharing some projects made with some of the new goods today.
I’m excited to share with you something I made with the new What a Guy stamps and dies.
Rather than making a card, I made this simple little layout.
The little guy? He’s the nephew of my friend, Tam, who provided the picture for me to use. (The layout will go to her sister, who I hope likes it.)
All the tools were stamped with the stamp set and then colored in with markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
The words on the label are also from the What a Guy stamp set. I did added my own little personal touch to the stamped words by adding a couple dots with a white pen to them. With that font, I think that looks pretty cool!
The label? You might be wondering about it. It’s from the previously released Retro Labels dies. It’s a good set of dies that I used often.
Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to check out Technique Tuesday’s New Release page on May 1st. That’s when all the new products will be there.
Also, swing by the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the design team members sharing projects today.
Be back again tomorrow! Hope to see you then!
I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today.
I’m showing how to make this card, plus giving a tutorial on how to create glittery stripes on patterned paper. It’s a fun… and easy… technique!
I hope you’ll check it out!
Back again with another stamped card to share with you.
Meet today’s card.
Just a little “for fun” card that came as the result of messing around once again with the Three Amigos stamp set (and coordinating dies) from Mama Elephant.
I just love the little signs the animals hold in the stamp set. And I love that they are blank so you can really do all kinds of things with them.
I wanted to make a card for a friend, who is always there for everyone with a kind word and hug, so I went with these phrases. I easily could have turned this into a birthday card to give to another friend instead by using different words.
I was pretty pleased with the card when I added the stamped images to it, but I felt like it needed some extra pop so I used Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a circle (Look really, really really close! It’s black!) to the die-cut circle. Then I used white Nuvo Crystal Drops to make a white dot border outside the black circle.
I also added some dots with red Crystal Drops to my little stamped, colored (with markers) and die-cut hearts.
I think the dots just add the right little something to a card.
Anyway, that’s it for today. I’ll be back again later, friends. See you soon.
Back again to share another card created for the Lawn Fawn Challenge with my pal, Ashley!
Meet today’s card.
I was dying to make a card with the Party Panda stamps and dies set that you can get this year during your birthday month with Lawn Fawn. So the panda and bamboo (times 2) were stamped and cut with the set.
The conversation bubbles were stamped and cut with the A Little Birdie Told Me stamps and dies. I thought it would be fun to make it look like the little panda bears were talking to each other.
Alright! That’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later.
Be sure to check to out Ashley’s blog once again to see her latest take on the challenge.
A happy Thursday to you! I’m here once again with a take on the Lawn Fawn Challenge with my pal, Ashley. We both are sure having fun digging into our stashes and playing with their stamps and dies.
Meet today’s card.
Decided to make a birthday card today.
Pulled out the Hang In There stamp set (and coordinating dies) that I, ironically, treated myself to for my birthday last year. 😉 The sloth, leaves and hat are all from that set.
Did some good old coloring with markers to add color to the little guy. Went a little dark with the red on the hat, but, you know what? That’s OK. No need to try to be perfect every(single)time you make a card. Mistakes show a card’s handmade and heart went into making it.
To make the little guy seem a bit more realistic, I dabbed a teeny tiny amount of black Nuvo Crystal Drops on his eyes. By the way, I tested it out on scratch paper first to make sure I put the right amount down and used the right amount of pressure (squeeze) on the bottle to not get too much out of it.
The sentiment was created by combining together words from the So Much To Say set with words from the Hang In There set. Love when you can mix and match things and have them look good together.
Well, that’s it for this card. I’ll be back again later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest challenge card!
I’m back again with another card to share with you. Today’s card again uses stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn and is another take on the Lawn Fawn Challenge with Ashley.
So meet today’s card!
Don’t you just love that little dinosaur? She’s from the Rawr stamp set. The conversation bubble and heart are from the set too.
Add some extra details to the dinosaur by pouncing some dots onto her with a medium and dark green marker. To blend the color into the dinosaur’s “skin”, I used a light green marker to pounce some additional dots over them.
I created the sentiment by pairing together some words from the Rawr stamp set with a “miss you” from the So Much To Say stamp set. I think it turned fun!
I once again grabbed paper scraps from my stash for the card. And I once again added some quick dots to the card with Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Alright. That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog today to see her latest take on the challenge.
I’m back… back again… with another card. Are you surprise? Yeah. I didn’t think so. 😉
Meet today’s card.
Created this guy with some Paper Smooches stamps and dies (Sugar Rush stamps; Party Posse stamps; Sugar Rush Icons dies; Posse Icons dies).
It seemed appropriate sharing it today since it marks the end of the Tax Season. One of my childhood memories is the end of Tax Season with my mom and grandma (both numbers ladies in their professional careers) and celebrating the end of the long stressful Tax Season by going to dinner at Sunshine Pizza. It was a real treat. Pizza and Donkey Kong & Pac-man video games. Doesn’t get better than that. 🙂
This card could easily serve as a card for the end of Tax Season… or for a birthday or some other happy occasion.
To make the birthday hats stand out on my card, I added some an enamel dot to each of them. Just a fun little finishing touch. And the patterned papers? They yet again came from my box of scraps.
Alright! That is it for now. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for stopping by.
Back again with another stamped card.
Ashley and I decided to challenge each other again. This time, we are diving into our stashes of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies to make some cards. Let’s be honest: The two of us have enough Lawn Fawn products to sink a small island. (Wink! OK. Maybe not but maybe…) But, hey it sounded like a good idea!
So meet today’s card and my first take on the new challenge.
This was such a fun card to work on, as I’ve had the stamps (So Jelly stamp set and Fintastic Friends stamp set) in my stash awhile but they haven’t seen a lot of action.
First, let me tell you a little bit about my design process. I only knew I was going to make some Lawn Fawn cards this week so I pulled out a bunch of stamp sets and dies and just stamped and cut a bunch of images. Then I colored them and pulled some images out of the mix to make these card.
I felt like the fish and jellyfish needed some kind of water to swim in so I cut a circle from cardstock and sponged some Distress Oxide ink on it. Then I spritzed on a little water. Once it was dry, I added the stamped images and stamped a couple air bubbles. I also went kinda crazzzzzy and added the blue circle border with Nuvo Crystal Drops and some clear circle dots in the middle with Ranger’s Glossy Accents. Both are staples in my card making stash.
The patterned papers on my card came from my shoebox of scraps. I forced myself to pick some papers from that box that just worked with the stamping rather than cutting into a couple new pieces of paper.
For the sentiment, I just stamped some words from the So Jelly set on a strip of white cardstock. And then I added a few more blue dots to it… just to go with the ones on the circle.
Alright! That’s all I have for you.
Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her first take on the challenge. Be back again later.
I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L with a tutorial on how to make a card like this. Swing by their blog to get the scoop on how to do it.
It was so fun to make it!
And I loved figuring out a way to incorporate glitter on a card without getting too messy. I think you’ll enjoy it too.
