Here yet again on the old blog-a-roo. Sharing a card I put together last week that I just plain had fun putting together.
Made this guy with a couple new Technique Tuesday products: the Cascading Hearts border die and the Simply You 2.0 stamps. I also used their Retro Labels dies (from their Fresh Cut Studio collection of dies).
So how did I do the hearts? Well, I cut a card base from white cardstock. I folded it in half, opened it up and then placed the heart die right onto it. I ran it through my Big Shot machine and ended up with that cool heart border.
The border was cool, but it needed more so I added some strips of patterned paper to the inside of the card. I also added a few a sequin and a few drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I think it turned out pretty nice!
Alrighty, friends! That’s all I got! I’ll be back later, gators.
Thanks for swinging by.
Been a few days since I have been here. Got a card to share with you.
Made this guy the other day just for fun.
The cacti and words were stamped with the new A Little Prickly stamp set from Technique Tuesday. I also used the coordinating dies.
Got a bit fancy with my markers by adding a little shading and some dots (for extra detail) to both cactus plants. The dots are such a fun way to make an image pop.
The patterned papers came from an old Studio Calico pad of paper from a kit from a long time ago. Not sure who designed them.
I added a few other little touches to this card: a couple dots near the sentiment (made with Nuvo Crystal Dots) and a few stitches (made with my trusty needle and spool of floss… wink.).
Alright! That’s all I got. Be back later.
Thanks, as always, for stopping on by. You guys rock’eth.
Super excited to be joining some of my favorite paper crafters and crafting companies for the this year’s Seasons Givings Blog Hop!
This little hop, dreamed up 6 years ago by friend, Latisha, is a fun way to celebrate the crafting community. Everybody bands together to share blog posts and do a giveaway … on every single stop.
It’s a fun way to kick off the new year!
I’ve got just something small this year for my giveaway.
I have a set of Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum stamps from Lawn Fawn (yes, they are slightly yellow but they have never been used) and a couple fun pens (an orange gel pen and a Cactus gel pen). I’ve got some plans involving funky pens like them in 2018. Stay tuned for that.
For a shot at my giveaway, leave a comment on my blog midnight PST on Jan. 6th, 2018. I’ll pick a winner and notify her or him sometime on the 8th. I’ll announce it here after I’ve notified the winner.
Alright! That’s what I got. Here’s a complete list of blog hoppers! Be sure to check out all the stops.
Squeezing in one last card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Had this little coffee image from Art Impressions sitting on my desk since last week. It was all colored up and good to go so I ran with it and slapped together this little card.
The lady kinda of reminds me of some of the sweet ladies my mom and grandma used to bowl with it for years and years. 🙂 Some of the nicest ladies around.
The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set I designed called Sassy Coffee.
It was tough picking which phrase to use. I do like cards with a sassy feel.
Alrighty! Short and sweet this post shall be! Thanks, as always, guys, for stopping by! I appreciate the visits and your kindness!
Here again with one last take on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with my pal, Ashley.
On your mark. Get set. Meet today’s card.
Pulled out my Avery Elle stash of stamps to put this guy together. The little snowman and snowflakes are from the Be Jolly set, while the words are from the Let It Snow set.
Little secret about the background. I made this really awesome sky background with the Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. I was all set to make a little scene and then… BOOM…. dropped a black ink pad on the corner! Tears! Seriously, don’t you hate it when that happens?!
I had an idea for saving it. I stamped the snowman one more time on cardstock. Fussy cut it out with my scissors, adhered it the cloud paper and then … boom… use a circle die to cut it out.
Meet the leftovers of Exhibit A.
See the black ink mark. Kinda makes me wanna cry… even now. Wink!
So anyhoo, I used the circle with the snowman on my card as you see here.
It worked out. Yep. It worked out.
Alright! That’s all I got. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge.
Be back later, gators.
