Back again with a card to share with you! Because… that’s what I do. Wink!
Just a “for fun” card!
Created this goofy little scene with the new Let’s Flamingle stamps and dies from My Favorite Things. They just came out. (Thank you, sweet friend, who shared them with me.)
Flamingos have a special place in my heart. Many plastic flamingos have graced my yard over the years. They humor me greatly. 😉
I thought it would be fun to create a goofy scene with them so I die-cut, stamped and colored several drink glasses for my scene. I even added some “salt” to them with glitter glue.
I initially had planned to have all the glasses surround one of the ‘mingos, but I made a last minute decision that one should serve as a hat too. Because… it made me chuckle. Hopefully it does for you too!
By the way, you might be wondering about the background behind the flamingos. I created that sky with the help of MFT’s Cloud stencil. It’s such a fantastic tool for making scene cards. I’d totally recommend getting one to anyone who likes to make stamped scenes.
Anyway, that is all I have for you. Thanks for taking the time to check out my card today.
Back again once more for the Birthday Card Challenge with my pal, Ashley.
Totally have run out of steam here so today’s card is a simple one.
Dug into my stash of My Favorite Things stamps and dies (and papers) to put this guy together.
Like I said, it’s a simple one.
The sentiment is from their Big Birthday Wishes stamp set, which is pretty recent. The dies are from a couple or so years ago and might be retired…. or might not be… or might be. But I think that’s part of the cool thing about MFT’s product line. Things from throughout the years go together. Many of their products are timeless. I appreciate that a lot.
Besides the MFT goodness, I did add a few extra details with some floss (simple) and some white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Simple as well. This card has a little dimension to it, but it’s still super mailable. I like that.
Alright. That’s a wrap. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog for her latest take on the challenge.
See you again soon.
Back again for one more take on the Valentine Challenge with my pal, Ashley!
So meet today’s card.
A super sweet friend sent me the Pure Innocence Blowing Kissses stamp set and die from My Favorite Things to play with. (Thank you so stinking much, super sweet friend!!!!) I couldn’t resist pulling it out and using this weekend while crafting with friends during a Super Bowl/Scrapper Bowl party. 😉
I created that background on the kraft card with the help of a “retired” stencil (also from MFT). I just placed it on card at an angle and then sponged a little ink on top. I often like to ink up a whole card front when using a stencil but wanted to live dangerously (so to speak) and only do part of this one. I think it turned out pretty nice. I also sponged a little ink (lightly) onto the card for the girl to stand on. The shadow that inking creates is always good for grounding an image.
Keeping in line with the “kisses” sentiment, I used some heart dies to act like kisses for my card. I also added a few dots with white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the design. I sure like the dimension they always add to a card without adding any real bulk.
Alright! That’s it for today. Be sure to hop on by Ashley’s blog-a-roo to see her latest take on the challenge.
I’m back with another card to share with you!
Meet today’s card.
Created this guy with the new Breakfast Puns stamp set. My friend, Mendi, just released it along with a bunch of other new products for Sunny Studio Stamps. She was so kind to hook me with up a few of her new products early for my birthday last month. (Thank you, Mendi!)
I couldn’t resist making a quick card with this little coffee cup. Happy face + coffee = can’t go wrong in my world.
Cut the banners and rectangle with a couple dies from My Favorite Things. And the patterned papers are just from my scrap box. Really trying to use my scraps, rather than hoard them, get frustrated to have so many and then recycle them so I can start fresh…. wink. Can you relate?
Added a few extra dots to the card with some red enamel dots (from Simple Stories) and my trusty bottle of white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Those white dots are kinda of light, but they are there. You are going to have to trust me!
Alright! That’s it for today. I’ll be back again later, gators! Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Back again with another take on the 2017 Christmas Card Challenge with my buddy, Ashley!
I wanted to do something different today…. and well, yeah. 😉
Unicorns & Christmas? Yep. Different. And this was the result.
Always fun to push yourself to do something different when making cards. Let’s be real here for a minute: Do I love these cards? I like them. I don’t love them but it was fun to do something different. I’ve not seen a Christmas unicorn before so I decided to give it a go. I’m glad I did and that’s why I am sharing. 🙂
The unicorn and rainbow are from the Mama Elephant Unicorn stamp and die set that Hampton Art produced and is available at Jo-Ann Stores. Not sure where else, but that’s where I found it. (It’s based on Mama Elephant’s fabulous Unicorns & Rainbows stamp set.) The words are a mash up of sentiments from My Favorite Things’ Toasty Greetings and Magical Unicorns sets. I did some masking to basically make the custom sentiment. The star stamp is also from MFT.
I once again created a background for my scene with the help of MFT’s Cloud stencil. Gosh, how fun that thing is!
Not much more to say today so I’ll be taking off.
Be back again tomorrow. In the meantime, be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on this year’s challenge.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by! It’s ALWAYS a treat!
Another day. Another card based on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with my friend, Ashley!
Meet today’s card.
I once again had fun playing with some Mama Elephant stamps. The reindeer is from their Reindeer Games stamp set. It’s just adorable.
To make the lead reindeer different (basically, like Rudolph and all), I colored his nose in with red ink and added a teeny tiny touch of glitter glue on top. I stung them together with the help of some good old twine.
The words and the stamped stars are from Holly Jolly by Julie Ebersole for Ellen Hutson. Such a fun stamp set.
Created the background for this card once again with the help of the Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. Such a great tool to use for creating cute and quick backgrounds. Take the stencil. Sponge on a little ink. Move the stencil. Sponge a little more ink. Repeat these steps over and over until you’ve added color to an entire panel of cardstock.
Super fun… and super cool looking.
Alright! That’s it for today. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see what she’s cooked up for today.
