I’m sharing two projects today with you!
The first project uses the Duke’s Gang stamp set from IndigoBlu.
I mean, hello, dogs! You can’t go wrong with dogs!
I masked the two dog images together by stamping one dog and then stamping him a second time on a sticky note. I cut him out, placed him on the first image and then stamped the little dog on top. The result? Something that looks like the two dogs are next to each other. Easy peasy!
The second card uses the Tall Wildflowers stamp from Crafty Individuals.
I was feeling kinda of artsy when I made this one. I sponged dye inks onto cardstock and then flicked water droplets on top. I let the ink dry and then stamps the flowers with black ink right on top.
An easy technique, but it is such a fun technique to do! You get a different look every single time. I love that!
Alright! That’s what I have. Now, be sure to check out all these blogs and comment for your chance to win the grand prize!!
Me again. Here with a card to share today.
Made this one with the new Sweets dies from Paper Smooches, as well as their Celebrate word die and Chit Chat stamp set.
To make the little candies, I just randomly cut candy pieces from cardstock and patterned paper scraps. To give some of them a little bit of glitz, I added hearts topped with glitter glue. Such a simple thing but perfect for giving things pop-a-roo.
Alright. Not much more to say so this is a short and sweet post. That’s good sometimes, right? I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by, guys. See you again soon.
Another day. Another project to share.
Meet today’s card.
Sharing this one because… well, I like it. 🙂 Simple as that. Sometimes, you make stuff and it doesn’t quite turn out how you envisioned. And then, sometimes, everything works out just right. This one is one of those “just right” ones.
That fox? Stamped her with the new Frederick and Fiona stamps from Technique Tuesday. They are part of their new Animal House collection of stamps and dies. The words? They were cut with the new coordinating Frederick and Fiona dies.
The fox could easily be a boy but I wanted it to be a girl so I tied a little bow with twine and then plopped it on the top of her head. I think it would be fun for a boy to add a little bow and place it on the fox’s chest as a little bow tie of sorts. Just thinking aloud though.
Rather than coloring in the fox’s nose with markers, I used some black Nuvo drops. I like that it gave it a little dimension that markers would not have.
Alrighty, friends. That’s what I have for you today. I’ll be back again soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
Just quick little something to share with you today.
Had some fun making this guy for Paper Smooches with the new Courteous Cuties stamp set (and dies) and For You tag die.
To give the little dude some color, I used a couple markers – a gray for highlights, a couple flesh tones for the legs and ears and a really soft pink for the cheeks. Those cheeks are pretty subtle but look really, really, really, really close and you’ll see them. See? Told you. Wink.
This tag could pretty much go on any gift package. I decided instead to go all Valentine’s Day like with it and fill up a little bag with Valentine’s Candy Corn and then add it to it. Easy peasy.
Alright. That’s all I have you today. I’ll be back again later, friends. Hope you are having a super day.
