Got a couple “Summer’ish” cards to share with you today.
These are the result of a late night “I just want to stamp something and play for the fun of all things in stamping fun” session. So, yeah, here we are.
Both cards use the Stay Golden by Julie Ebersole stamp set from Ellen Hutson. I pulled it out play with since it’s been in my stash for a quite awhile but hasn’t seen a lot of ink. Sad, I know. It felt like a good time to remedy that.
I inked up the solid pineapple base with two different colors of yellow ink before stamping it onto the card. Then I stamped it off, creating the second impression to the right. I used just one ink for the leafy crown and then stamped it off a second time to create the impression at the right.
Then I went to town, adding some flowers, the tiny pineapple, the pineapple outline and the words. Plus I added some extra details with Nuvo Crystal Drops, Washi tape and my old school sewing machine.
I used the small pineapple and the set’s medium pineapple on the second card. Again, I used two colors of yellow ink and stamped them off after I stamped the first time. I also added some stamped flowers and the sentiment.
Once again, I finished the card with some Nuvo Crystal Drops, Washi tape and machine stitching.
I wasn’t sure about this one as it came together, but I sure like the end result!
That’s it for today. I’ll be back again later, gators.
I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today. Here’s a peek at the project I’m sharing over there.
It’s not quite a card for Independence Day, and yet it’s in that color scheme.
Swing by their blog to see the whole card, plus get the scoop on making your own shaker pockets… in a super duper easy (and fast… and non-messy) way with their Keepsake Envelopes!
See you again soon!
I’m super excited to be joining the folks from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Paper House Productions for a blog co-hop that’s been happening all week!
I am sharing a card perfect for Summer on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!

Be back again soon!
Here again with a card to share.
Made this one a bit ago for Paper Smooches.
I’m a fan of mixing and matching stamps from way back so that’s what I did here. I mixed and matched together a couple stamps from a couple different stamp sets: Huge Hugs and Sugar Rush (and the coordinating dies for both sets).
I think they worked well together to make a cute little scene.
And if you have been following the story of Fiona the Hippo at the Cincinnatti Zoo, this card might be a little bit inspired by Fiona. I mean, she’s just so cute… and she’s a hippo. (Wink.)
All the patterned papers in the background are once again from my box of scraps. I talk about that box a lot here on my blog-a-roo. Let me tell you a secret: It’s just a little shoebox sized box that I keep near my desk. Over the years, my collection of paper scraps has been awfully big at times. It was too much. So I purged all those tiny pieces of papers awhile back and got a shoebox and told myself that was it. If the scraps of paper don’t fit in it, they gotta go. The smaller size, at least, has helped keep things manageable.
Alright! That’s it for now. Be back later, friends.
I’m joining the Technique Tuesday gang today in sharing a project made with some goods from the March release.
The new release debuts on March 1st on their website. You can see a few of the new products today on their blog. You’ll also find links to all the other design team members sharing projects today!
I used a couple new products for this guy.
I created the heart with the new Pieces of my Heart die. I cut three hearts from cardstock (red, pink and white). I mounted the pink and the red ones together, and then cut a puzzle piece from the white one and added it to the top. I finished it by adding a small heart covered with glitter glue on top. (The little heart was cut with TT’s Nested Hearts dies).
The sentiment I used is from the Love You to Pieces stamp set, which debuts on the 1st along with the Pieces of my Heart die.
It’s good for cards and scrapbook pages. And I’m sure you could come up with a bunch of other uses for it too! It’s packed with lots of great words.
Look for all of Technique Tuesday’s new products to debut on the 1st. You’ll find them in the New Products category on their website.
And, once again, be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to the blogs of all the other TT Design Team members sharing projects today.
See you again tomorrow with another project made with some March release products!
Me again. Feeling the card vibe still. Got another one to share with you.
So meet today’s card.
Thought this might be a fun card to send to a friend.
The little food images are from Lawn Fawn’s Sweet Friends stamp set (and coordinating dies). The words are from the stamp set too.
I originally picked up the stamp set and was all set on going die-free with it. But those arms and legs? Yeah. Totally sucked me into to getting the dies to use with the stamps. They are just… kinda… sorta… awesome. 🙂
The papers are once again from my box of scraps. I actually think the polka dots are from Lawn Fawn. The ledger paper is not. (Fancy Pants, I believe.)
Yet again I added some dots with some white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Always such a fun addition.
Alright! Tis’ it for now. Be back again later, gators. Thank you again for stopping by!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m here again with a card in honor of the big day.
I once again dug into my stash of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. Sometimes, you just got use things that make you happy. Truly, Lawn Fawn does that for me. Just such a happy line of products.
I used mostly stamps from the Bugs and Kisses set (and coordinating dies).
Pretty simple, straight-forward card so there isn’t too much to say. Other that I must admit that I was somewhat (even as I write this I am) over the little black dots I added to the card with my (beloved) Nuvo Crystal Drops. I got a little crazy and got a little too much drop (and splattered) near one of the hearts. I easily could have tossed the card… or came up with some way to hide it… but in keeping it real, I’m running with it by (1) keeping the card as it is and (2) showing you … and pointing it out. So yeah. 😉
Anyhoooooo, that’s what I have for you. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Sending you lots of happy thoughts this Valentine’s Day!
Hi again, friends!
Sneaking in one more time with one more take on the Valentine Challenge with my pal, Ashley.
This is today’s card.
Ta-da! As always, just had fun while making this card. Just. Plain. Had. Fun.
The whales and words are from Lawn Fawn’s Whale You Be Mine stamp set. I also used the coordinating dies.
I wanted the whales to look a little different so I colored them in, did the whole “Copic blending thing” if you know what I mean. Wink! Then I took a dark marker and added a few more swooshes (and brushes) of ink… because I could. I like the result. 🙂
All the papers on my card are just random pieces of paper from my scrapbox.
The card seemed a little flat so I whipped out clear Glossy Accents and Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a bunch of dots to the card. As you can tell, I spared no expense when it came to adding dots.
Alrighty! That’s it for me today. Once again, be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her most recent take on the challenge.
Super tickled to be joining my friend, Laurel, in taking part in her Inspired By challenge. This week’s challenge is to make something inspired by this picture.
So cute, right?! (I’m also counting my take on it for today’s Valentine challenge with Ashley!)
So meet today’s card!
I just had a whole lotta fun here, creating a cute little “love” mail scene.
I think the cloudy background makes it. Made that bad boy with a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. If you are a stamped scene builder like I am, stop what you are doing. Get the stencil. You’ll love it. I can assure it. (PS. No affiliate links or sponsorship to say that. I’m truly just a fan!)
All the images and words on the card came from a couple different stamp sets: Gleeful Gardens and (retired) You’ve Got Mail from Lawn Fawn and Three Amigos from Mama Elephant.
Love it when you can mix different stamp sets together and end up with something that pleases you.
Added a little extra pop to the card by adding a few dots with some white, black and pink Nuvo Crystal Drops. I love those things.
Alright! That’s all I have. Be sure to check out the other takes on the Inspired By image…. and be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on our Valentine challenge.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Hi guys !
Back on the old blog-a-roo with another card to share! Couldn’t resist making something in honor of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
So meet today’s card.
Just had fun here, letting the frame cutting die-cut lead me on where to place the stamped images.
The cups, beans, heart, steam and words are all from the Perk Up stamp set, which (in full disclosure here) I designed for Technique Tuesday.
I did all the coloring on the card with markers. I was trying to be all cool and stuff so I added a little shadow at the bottom of each cup with a darker marker and then blended in the color with the lighter marker. The shadow on the cups is subtle but I think it looks kinda cool.
I did the same thing with the coffee beans too. 🙂
I wish I had more to say to you, but it’s the end of the weekend. I’m tired. The writing tank is dry so that’s what I got. I’ll try to give you a wordier post next time.
But be sure to swing by the Bloghop to see lots of other cool coffee-themed projects. Always so fun to see what everyone comes up with!
See you again soon, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
