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.
I’m back with a Christmas card to share with you today. Today’s card by was inspired by Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 65: Fun with Dies! Seemed like a good reason to dig into my pile of dies and plays… and so I did. 🙂
Meet today’s card and my take on the challenge.
The wreath (cut with the Mini Wreath dies) was so much fun to put together. Super tiny but fun to add some extra detail to with Glossy Accents. You’ll see I added a little gloss to the berries and the bow.
I also added a detail to the hearts (cut with the Hearts dies) with Glossy Accents as well.
I also “hung” the wreath with a small piece of twine.
To make the Fa La La La La word (cut with the Fa La La La La Border) stand out, I cut it three times from kraft cardstock and stacked it up and added a stamped phrase beneath it. The words? They were stamped with a phrase from the Simply Winter Sentiments set.
In full disclosure, I originally planned to hang the wreath from the Fa La La La La words. I tried many ways but I was not digging the look. I haven’t quite abandoned the idea thought and might try again later in the holiday card making season. Watch for that… wink!
Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks for swinging by. And thanks, Fawny friends, for the challenge.
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!
The cards just keep coming. Yessss! 🙂
I was inspired yet again by the latest Coffee Lovers Blog Hop to make today’s card.
I once again whipped out the Thanks a Latte stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. It’s such a cute set!
I stamped and die-cut the mugs, scarves and heart. I colored them in with markers and then set them aside.
I sponged some blue ink onto a card in a circle. I added the cups and hearts to it, and then stamped the snowflakes, steam and sentiments.
For a finishing touch, I added a few white drops with my white Nuvo Crystal Drops. I sure like it adds to cards…. and yet…. still keeps your cards relatively flat and easily mailable.
Alrighty. This post is short and sweet… and all I have. I’ll be back again later, gators.
Don’t forget to check out the hop. So many wonderful projects have been linked up so far. So…. stinking… many. If you love coffee, cocoa or tea, this hop is worth checking out!
I couldn’t help myself. I was inspired by the Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop make another card to share with you.
Meet today’s card.
Today’s card is on the fun side. I pulled out the Thanks a Latte stamp set (and dies) from Lawn Fawn. Not only are the cups ADORABLE, but there are little face stamps you can stamp on them. I just love giving a cup that extra pop of silly personality.
The texture background for my card was created with the Cable Knit embossing folder from Sunny Studio Stamps. It felt like it was just a good background to use with these warm Winter drinks.
Alright! That is it for me for now. I hope to make another project or two to share and link up to the hop before it ends.
By the way, don’t forget to swing by the hop post to see all the projects that have been linked up so far. So many fun coffee, tea and cocoa-themed cards.
Looking for a little Christmas card and gift tag inspiration? I’m up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today, sharing a couple new projects. Here’s a little peek at the goods.
I’ll give you the scoop on how I made the little wreaths. Yes, they might look simple but, wow, they took quite a few steps.
Plus I’ll tell you how I used some of the awesome products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to really make the wreaths pop off the card and tag. Talk about time savers!
I’d be tickled if you’d check the post out. Thanks for stopping by, friends. I’ll be back later in the week!
I’m back with another stamped Halloween card to share with you.
Meet today’s card.
So yeah. It might seem a little similar to one of my other recent cards. In fact, you might call this one a bonus card of sorts as it is one more Halloween card that I made when I had Lawn Fawn’s Pick of the Patch stamps and dies out the other day.
I created the simple background for my stamped scene by rubbing orange and blue Distress Oxide Inks onto a panel of cardstock. Then I spritzed a little water onto the panel, patted it down with paper towels and let it dry completely. When it was dry, I stamped a few stars (from a stamp set I can not remember) with orange ink onto it with orange ink.
I created the sentiment by pairing together a couple sentiment stamps from the set. I purposely curved the top phrase when I put it on the stamping block to create an arch of sorts.
The pumpkins and squirrel were all stamped and die-cut with the stamps and dies… and then colored in with markers. Nothing really fancy there. (Wink!)
After I completed the assembly of the panel, I added a few “water-y” drops with Glossy Accents from Ranger Ink. As I think back about my long (dinosaur-worthy) paper crafting life, Glossy Accents are one of those tools that I’ve had forever… and go in spurts with me. I use them a ton and then I stop for awhile… and then I use them again and again. Are there any crafting supplies like that for you?
Alright. That’s it for now. I’ll be back again later. Thank you, as always, for taking time to stop by my blog. I appreciate you taking time to do so.
