Back again… yet again… with another stamped card to share with you.
Just a quick post today. So meet today’s card.
I had used the Critter Campout Stamps from Sunny Studio Stamps recently for another card. I had stamped a few too many critters for that card and had the extras still sitting on my desk. Throwing them out? Yeah. Could have. But figured it would be more fun putting them on card… and so I did.
It’s a little hard to tell but I embellished the little guys by selectively adding some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops and a white gel pen. It’s a subtle thing to do, but I think it really helps make images pop more off cards and stuff. Plus it doesn’t add a lot of bulk so, hello, affordable sending in the mail. 😉
Alright. That’s it for me for now. Told you this would be a quick post. I’ll be back later, friends. Thanks for stopping by.
I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today.
I’m super excited to be over there, sharing a quick and easy way to embellish patterned paper with…. stencils, glitter and the Dual Tip Glue Pen. It’s such an easy to add a little bit of glitz and shimmer to papers.
Be sure to check out the post.
Be back again later, gators.
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!
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.
