Alright! So let’s get on with the project!
Created this card with the new Rainbow Sherbet dies. I cut a line in the typewriter and then cut a piece of cardstock to fit in it so it would like the sentiment really was typed.
The words are from a couple different stamp sets: Noteworthy and Delightful Greetings. They were part of larger sentiments so I did a little masking by covering up the unneeded words with washi tape while I inked the stamps.
The papers on the card are also from Paper Smooches. They are from the previously released Rainbow Sherbet paper pack. I really like the color combo.
Alright. That’s it for me. I’ll be back later, friends. Thanks for hopping today and stopping by my blog-a-roo!
PS…. Do you love making stuff with Paper Smooches’ products? Well, don’t forget to check out the fun challenge PS offers each month? Keep an eye on the PS blog for details.
Just wanted to give you a little peek at a couple cards I shared this week over on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
You’ll the scoop on how I made them… and some tips for using their 3D Foam Frames in my post over there. Such a fun foam shape to use to make stuff.
By the way, I was super excited about these card with the color scheme. I don’t often use purple on my cards (or really on anything for that matter). It sure was fun to step out of my creative box.
Anyway, hope you’ll check out the post! See you again soon!
Got a couple cards to share with you today! Made these two critter cards last week and just getting around to sharing them.
Is the unicorn not the cutest ever? My friend, Nina, sent the unicorn die over to play with for the fun of it. It’s from Waffle Flower Crafts, and I truly imagine making a ton of cards with it. It. Just. Plain. Makes. Me. Happy.
I used it somewhat the same and somewhat different. I added a heart (diecut with dies from Lawn Fawn) to each unicorn, plus added color with markers. (I also added hearts in the background.) For one of the unicorns, I added sparkle with glitter glue (that’s the white one). For the other unicorn, I added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen. It’s subtle but so, so pretty.
The sentiment on both cards is from the Encouraging Greetings set from Pretty Pink Posh. It’s quickly become one of my favorites to use for creating cards for friends. It’s pretty much on my desk all the time… wink!
Alrighty! That is all I have for you. Be back later, gators.

Alright! So let’s get on with the project.
I had a blast creating the cactus plant for this card with the new Cacti dies. These dies allow you make all kinds of cactus.
I’m not from a cactus-friendly place so be kind to any creative liberties take with this cactus. (Wink!) In card land, everything is possible, right?
I created the custom sentiment for the card by pairing together words from two stamp sets – Kindness Sampler and Delightful Greetings. The little heart? It, too, is from Delightful Greetings. It just… appropriate… for this card.
The background for this card was creating by mixing together a bunch of paper scraps from my never-ending bin of scraps. (Can you relate?)
Alright! That’s it for this card.
But got a question for you. Do you have a pile of Paper Smooches stamps and dies? Don’t forget there’s a chance for you share what you are making with them. Paper Smooches offers a fun challenge every month. Watch the blog for details. Kim LOVES and I MEAN LOVES seeing what you are creating!
Thanks so very much for checking out the hop today! I appreciate all your kinds words! See you again soon.
Hi there, friends!
I’m back with another card to share with you.
This card was quick to put together… and a lot of fun too!
To make the “rainbow”, I cut two sunray backgrounds from white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn die. I set one on my craft table and set the other (temporarily) on my card. Then I used that one as a guide to add the rainbow rays to the card with my colored pencils.
Once I had the rainbow completed, I adhere the second sun panel to the card. (I kept that first panel so I could make more cards like this one later.)
Then I stamped a sentiment from the Encouraging Greetings stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh on a strip of cardstock. I added a little bit of thread underneath it and then added it to my card.
This card is fine as it is, but you could always kick it up a notch if you wanted to. Just add sequins or crystal drops to the “rainbow” rays. Gems would be cool too.
Looking for even more card inspiration? Be sure to check this post out on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog! I’ve put together 3 window cards for the post. You’ll get the scoop, plus lots of tips to use adhesives in out-of-the-box ways.
I hope you will check it out. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Back again with another card to share with you. Today’s card features an encouragement card that came together quickly with the help of a stencil and a few basic supplies.
I created the background for this card with the Leaves stencil from Pretty Pink Posh. I have been on a bit of a stencil kick lately, and, when I saw that stencil, I knew I had to make a card with it. Such a fun one.
I stenciled the pattern right onto the card directly with Distress Oxide Ink pads and a makeup brush from Daiso. I love how bold the Distress Oxide Inks are and how well they blend together.
To keep the card from being really boring with just an inked background, I added a few dots with white Nuvo Drops. It’s such a simple and easy way to add some visual interest.
The sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh as well. It came from the Encouraging Greetings stamp set. So many lovely phrases in it that are perfect for sending something to encourage a friend or loved one… or pick up their spirits.
Alright. That is all I have for you today. I’ll be back again real soon with another card to share with you.
By the way, looking for more cards from me? Don’t miss the interactive monster card I shared over the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L this week. It features a lot of fun details and elements that are easy to recreate on cards you make.
Here’s a little peek at the card.
Hope you will check it out!
See you again soon, friends!
Happy World Card Making Day! I’m delighted to be joining the Technique Tuesday Design Team with some very special guests in blog hopping today.
If you’ve been hopping along, you should have arrived here from the blog of Ana Anderson. If you are just getting started hopping, welcome to the hop! The next stop on the hop is the blog of Latisha Yoast.
We’re celebrating the big day by sharing some cards created with the brand new You’re Owlsome stamp set that TT just released for WCMD. You can get the stamp set for free through Sunday with a $30 or more purchase on the Technique Tuesday website. Just pick $30 or more products on their website, then add the stamp set to your cart and enter coupon code WCMD18 at check-out which will make the stamp set free.
I’ve got one card to share with you today. It’s a little on the artsy side.
I created the multi-colored owl (and pink hearts) by creating a background paper with Distress Oxide Inks and water and then simply stamping and die-cutting them with the matching dies. I think it’s a cool look and a fun way to add color without actually using markers and pencils like we often tell ourselves we have to do.
The background on my card was created with Washi tape and good ol’ black cardstock. For fun, I took a paint brush and flicked on splotches of diluted white paint.
Turned out pretty good, I think.
Alright! Be sure comment as you hop today as Technique Tuesday will be picking one person to give a gift certificate to. The lucky person will be selected at random from one of the hop stops. The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog.
And here’s the compete list of hoppers. Don’t forget that Latisha is the next stop. She’d love for you to visit.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by, friends.
