Just wanted to share a few cards with you today that I’ve not gotten around to sharing over here on the old blog-a-roo.
All of these cards were created with stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.
This simple “hello” card features the Courteous Cuties stamps and dies and Best Buds stamp set and dies.
I was just having fun here by stamping the monsters (from the We Adore You stamp set and dies) a couple times and stacking them up. I’ve been using markers quite a bit lately, but I decided to throw caution to the wind with this one and use pencils instead. It’s nice to try something different from the norm.
This is probably my favorite thank you card as of late. I made this guy with Paper Smooches’ Boom Bots stamp set (and dies). I just love robots!
Alright! That’s what I have for you. I’ll be back again later, gators.
Me again! Another day. Another card.
Today’s card is the result of me being in a Summertime kinda mood. 🙂
Thinking about my list of things to do over the next few weeks (eek!), a break sounds really cool. Camping under the stars, in fact, sounds kinda dreamy right now.
I created the blue background by sponging some Distress Oxide ink onto cardstock and then spritzing it heavily with water. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process. The I stamped a few stars onto it and added a little color to some of them with a white pen.
The bear, words, stars and tent are all from the Critter Campout stamp set from Sunny Sunny Studio Stamps. It, as in the stamp set, recently came to live with me so it needed a workout and all too. (Wink!)
To make the scene pop out a bit against the patterned paper, I whipped out my old friend, my bottle of white Nuvo Crystal Drops and added some dots around the largest circle. It’s subtle, but I think it works.
Alright. That’s it for now. Be back later, friends. Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Monday to you! I’m back with another stamped card to share with you…. just “fur” fun.
Get it? Hehe! Couldn’t resist.
I just couldn’t help myself with making another dog card… just for the fun of it. I used a couple dog-themed stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps, Party Pups and Devoted Doggies, for this one. These stamp sets are great because they are cool to use on their own, but they are also great to use together.
I colored the three dogs independently of each other. Just a happy coincidence that I used shades of gray for each one. I fussy cut them out. (Yep, I’m old school.) And then I adhered them on the card. I thought about being greedy and putting each on dog on his card, but they looked so cute together so I ran with it.
The sentiment isn’t really curved. I just bent the stamp as I placed it on my block. After I stamped it on my card, I stamped a paw print on each side. I thought it, well, just plain looked cute.
Anyhoo, that is what I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. See you again soon. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday. I’m here to show you a couple new projects today that feature the new Bubbles on the Border die, plus some of the other new stamps.
So let’s do this. Meet card no. 1.
I used the border die to add the bubbly border to the top of my card. And then I took a few of the circles to add “bubbles” to my scene, which was created with the new Simon & Sandy Seahorse stamp set and dies.
You’ll see I also added a few clear bubbles to the scene. Added those bad boys with Glossy Accents. 😉
And meet card no. 2.
For this one, I created a bubbly background of sorts by cutting the border out of three pieces of cardstock and then layering them together. It’s so not how TT intended to use these dies, but I’m one who likes to go against the grain sometimes when it comes to paper craft stuff. I think it turned out pretty fun actually.
Alright! So that’s what I have for you. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. And be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday website to see all the new goods.
Thanks for stopping by!
