Back again to share another Technique Tuesday project as TT gears up for their new release on Sunday.
Today’s card features new Happy Hydrangea stamp set and dies from their Greenhouse Society collection.
This is a really pretty stamp set. It includes some little flowers that you can stamp elsewhere on your card, or you can stamp again and add to the bigger bloom.
It has an interesting effect on the bigger grouping of flowers.
Just for show, here’s how the big bloom looks without the little flowers.
And here’s how it looks with them.
The cool thing is there is no real rhyme or reason to the little flowers so you can basically get away with placing as many or as few as you want… and wherever you want them.
Alrighty. That’s all I have for today. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see the products being revealed today and to see whoelse from the design team is sharing projects today.
Also be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday website to see all (and snag) all the new products.
July 1st is almost here, and Technique Tuesday is gearing up for the new release with their new release countdown.
I’m tickled to bring you a couple cards today created with the new Bugs & Kisses stamp set.
Meet card No. 1.
This little stamp set is just a stamp set. There are no dies for it at this time. Don’t let that deter you. The images are super easy to cut out with your scissors… or look good on paper, just stamped right onto your paper.
I really wanted the bugs to stand out on this card so I stamped them onto white cardstock, colored them in with markers and then cut them out with my scissors. You’ll see I also stamped a few of them a second time right onto the card. (I didn’t want to mess with cutting out the one bug’s tiny lines.)
And meet card no. 2.
I did the same thing with this card, stamping the bugs on cardstock and fussy cutting them out with my scissors. Again, didn’t want to mess with the tiny parts so I stamped the bugs again onto my card. To make their bodies pop, I adhered them to my card with foam squares. Perfect for giving a little pop!
Alright! That’s what I have for you.
You’ll find this stamp set (and the rest of the new release from Technique Tuesday) here on July 1st.
And you’ll find links to all the other TT design team members sharing projects today on the Technique Tuesday blog. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created! Such a talented bunch of ladies!
Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
Back with another stamped card to share with you. This is a fun one I put together with a few images I stamped a few months ago while crafting the weekend away with friends.
I have to be honest: This card made me laugh as it came together. I worked on it over a couple days and, eventually, told myself I just had to stop adding to the goofy little scene.
There is quite a bit of mixing and matching here. I used stamps from Heffy Doodle (the alligator, lion, champagne bottle), Mama Elephant (the words), Lawn Fawn (the stars) and Sunny Studio Stamps (the cupcake).
I wanted some of the elements on the card to stand out (the cupcake, bottle and the “OMG” bubble) so I used some Thin 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere them to the card. The thin squares are perfect because they add just a little bit of pop but not too much.
This card might end up being used as a birthday card for a friend. Or I might just send to to an awesome friend, who will hopefully get a kick out of it. We’ll see. But it was fun to make.
Thanks for stopping by today. See you again.
I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today. I’m sharing this card over there, and I’m telling you my secrets for making foiled dots and hearts like you see on the card.
Here’s a hint on the technique: I used two different kinds of adhesives to pull it off. Oh, just you wait. It’s crazy fun.
Be sure to check out the post over there for more deets.
See you again soon, friends.
Just wanted to give you the heads up to check out the Technique Tuesday blog over the next few days. There’s a giveaway going on where you can win a one of Technique Tuesday’s Animal House stamp sets. Simply pick a favorite animal from their Animal House collection and then leave a comment on Technique Tuesday’s blog, telling them which animal is your favorite.
I’ve really enjoyed working with the Animal House stamps since they debuted about a year and a half ago. TT releases a new animal every month.
Here are a couple of my favorite cards I’ve made with the Animal House stamps.
This one uses June the Giraffe.
And this one uses the Turtle Trio.
And this little canvas, which I gave to a friend, uses Clementine the Cow, the Chicken Family and Gertie and Garth Goat.
Anyway, don’t forget to pop on over to the Technique Tuesday blog!
Back again with another stamped card to share with you. Today’s card is a birthday one.
My grandma’s birthday is this weekend so I whipped up this guy for her. The dog and icons are from the Party Pups stamp set (and coordinating dies) from Sunny Studio Stamps.
Lean in close, friends. A little secret about this card. I had planned to use a different dog in the set for my card. The intended dog? A fluffy Pomeranian that reminds me of my Marley and whose name I always sign with cards to my grandma. However my coloring looked awful so I went with this little dog instead as I had colored at the same time and he looked pretty good. Good thing my grandma won’t mind that it’s not a Pom. 😉
To give the little dog a little extra personality, I added a party hat and cupcake. What dog doesn’t look great in a party hat? Well, that is all dogs that will actually allow themselves to wear party hats. 😉 (For the record, Marley typically knocks off any hats I put on it, but I continue to try. Wink!)
The papers are just an assortment of scraps from my box of scraps. The colors aren’t exactly all the same, but I think it’s OK sometimes to just give yourself permission to run with it and say, “I don’t need to be perfect today. My card does not need to be perfect today.” I mean, there are no card police officers out there, at least last time I checked there were not.
Alright, that’s what I got for you. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
Super geeked to be hopping today with the fun folks from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Hero Arts. You should have arrived here from the blog of Shelleye McDaniel. (Next stop after this one is Terri Burson!)
I’ve got 2 cards to share with you today.
Meet card no. 1.
I had a lot of fun making this card with the Food Puns stamps from Hero Arts. I made the heart waffles by stamping them on cardstock and coloring them in with markers. I fussy cut them out with scissors and then adhere them to my card with 3D Foam Squares Regular Size from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I love the pop the the squares give.
And meet card no. 2.
I used the It’s Fiesta Time stamp set from Hero Arts to stamp the dog, bottle, bones and sentiment for this card. Once again, I stamped on white cardstock and then colored things in with markers. Again, I did some fancy fussy cutting.
To give the card a little sparkle, I adhered 3D Foam Circles White Mix onto the card. I removed the backing paper on top and rubbed red foil (from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) onto the sticky surface. It’s kinda like magic, giving the circles a foil-y finish!
By the way, to hold the papers to both cards, I used E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser. It’s a great tool!
Alright! That’s what I have! There are will two $35 value prizes (one from Hero Arts and one from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L) for blog hoppers! International entries are welcome. You have until Sunday, 6/24, at 11:59 p.m. CST to enter! (You can do so by clicking the red button below.)

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