Today’s card (6-17)

Hi, gang!

It’s graduation season, and I was inspired to sit down the other night and make a few cards for some of the graduates I know.

This is just a simple little card. I really wanted to let the stamps from the Smart Cookie set (from Lawn Fawn) take center stage. The cookie is just so cute. And it’s cool the stamp set has faces for a male and a female! I couldn’t pick one so I decided just to make a boy cookie and girl cookie.

I have been on quite a fussy cutting kick lately, but I had the dies for this set so I used them. (Yay!)

I also added a few stamped stars to my design. It felt like it just needed something. (The stars are from Lawn Fawn’s Lovable Legends stamp set.)

Anyway, I hope the graduate who gets this card likes it. It was fun to make it.

Alright! That’s it for today. Be back later.

A Birthday Card for a Guy (6-16)

Hi, all!

Back again with another card to share with you.

Saw the Lawnfawnatics were having a “Cards for Guys” Challenge and was totally inspired to play so meet today’s card.

I created this card mostly with the Screen Time stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I also pulled in a few images (the stars and party hat) from the Lovable Legends set.

It’s a pretty basic card. I stamped most of the images on cardstock, colored them in with markers and then fussy cut them with my scissors.

For the stars, I just stamped them onto my patterned paper background and then added a hair or so of color with a blue marker. Subtle but does the trick. I also added a few dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I just love those things.

And that’s about it. πŸ˜‰

Hope you like the card. I’ll be back again soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

Today’s card (6-14)

Hi, gang!

I’m here yet again with a card to share with you so please give it up for today’s card.

And the crowd goes wild! (I kid. I kid.)

This card actually started a few months ago when I was able to to stamp the little elephants (from Fly with Me by Mama Elephant) at a retreat with some of my crafty friends. One of my friends kindly let me borrow the set and so I stamped quite a few images to bring home.

Let’s be honest: I didn’t quite know at the time what I was going to do with the, but I thought they were dang cute and would eventually be used by me to make something. And, so yeah, this card happened. πŸ˜‰

I did all the coloring with my trusty Caliart markers ($20 on Amazon, people! Such a deal!). No real rhyme or reason to my coloring, other than I had fun adding some color to each one.

The sentiment is also from Mama Elephant. The set is called Smitten, but I am guessing it’s retired because I can’t find it on their website anymore. Still…. it provided a great little sentiment for this little card of mine.

That’s it for me today, friends. I’m all blog post posted out. I’ll be back again later.

Today’s card (6-10)

Hi, guys!

Back on the blog with another stamped card. Because I like to make cards… and I like to share them with you! πŸ™‚

Meet today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri featuring Lawn Fawn

When I saw the new Critter Concert stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I knew I “had” to make a card with it. Cute animals? Check. Cute animals with instruments? Check. Scene potential? Over. The. Top.

All the stamping on the card was done with stamps in the stamp set. I didn’t get the dies so I did things the old school way. Yep. I stamped the critters on cardstock, colored them in with markers and then fussy cut them with my scissors.

You might be wondering how the lines are so dark… because there’s no way “Crusty Ol’ Teri” is the perfect fussy cutter. Here’s a little secret: I cut really, really, really slow. And then, if any white was showing on the edges of the critter, I “touched” it up with a black pen. The pen is a super nice way to hide flaws.

It’s a little hard to tell from the pictures, but I did want the eyes to stand out so I dotted each critter’s eyeballs with a black Nuvo Crystal Drops. Truly, there have been moments lately when I’ve wondered how I ever crafted without Crystal Drops. They are awesome.

One more little detail about the card. You might be wondering about the patterned paper on it. It, too, came from Lawn Fawn. It’s from Lawn Fawn’s Really Rainbow 6×6 paper pad. Such a good happy pack of paper.

Alright! That’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, friends. See you again soon.

Technique Tuesday Release Day!

New-Release-Countdown-Release-Day

Hi, guys!

It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday and I’m excited to share with you a couple new projects created with the Berry Basket dies (and some of the other new products).

This first card is a simple card created with the dies, as well as the Sweet Summertime stamps and dies, Cool and Sweet Words diesΒ and Jam Jar Labels dies.

I first created the basket first and then I added the stamped and die-cut fruit to it.

The sentiment was created by combining together words from the Sweet Summertime stamp set with a die-cut word from the Cool & Sweet Words dies.

The second project I’m sharing today uses the Berry Basket dies in a non-traditional way. I made a pocket with them for a gift card and added the basket to a tag.

I really wanted to use the sentiment (from the Silly Fruits stamp set) on the basket so I used stamped and die-cut a couple pineapples from the Sweet Summertime set to tuck into the basket as well. I think it turned out fun!

Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. You’ll also want to check out the New Products page on the Technique Tuesday website to see all the new goods.

Be back again later, gators.
