In need of a little birthday card inspiration? I’ve got a couple stamped birthday cards over on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Here’s a teeny tiny peek-a-roo.
These cards were a blast to make. Lots of stamping and lots of color, but not a lot of coloring actual images in with markers.
I hope you’ll check it out!
See you again soon!
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.
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!
Surprise, surprise! I’m back again with another stamped card to share with you.
Do you ever buy a stamp set that you are so excited about, bring it home and then … quietly… not do anything with it for a long, long, long time? So begins the tale of how today’s card came to be.
Meet today’s card.
I picked up the Winter Woodland stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh quite a long time ago. I just loved cute critters in it. I didn’t do much with it and instead kept in my bin of stamps to use soon. Days became days and days, and days and days became… forever.. with the stamp set sitting and waiting to see some inky action.
Well, I took one look at the stamp set the other day and was like, “I need to use you, man. You are so cute!” And so I challenged myself to get off my card making hiney and make a card with this adorable set. And so I did.
All the images on this card are from the set. The words too.
I went out my regular zone and used colored pencils to color the images in rather than markers. If you look close, you’ll see I added a little sparkle as well to the holly leaves (with a Wink of Stella pen) and the berries (with glitter glue). I also added some with dots with white Nuvo Crystal Drops.
That little rectangle panel was cut with a die from My Favorite Things.
Anyway, I think the card turned out pretty cute! I am totally challenging myself to make another card soon with the stamp set. It’s just so cute and happy… and fun. I sure like it.
I’ll be back again soon, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
I’m here again. True Story. It was like… 100 degrees… a few days ago…. and I was sitting at my desk making a Christmas card… but for a good reason!
I’m joining some of my favorite crafty friends today in the Get Cracking on Christmas Challenge Blog Hop.
This challenge was started by my friend, Jenn Shurkus, and other friends Chari and Cherion, who wanted challenge each other on the third Thursday of the month every month to share a Christmas card! If you did it every month, you’d have 12 Christmas cards by the end of the year. I think it’s an awesome way to build up that Christmas card stash… so here I am.
Before I show you what I made, here’s a complete list of all of today’s blog hoppers:
Susan Opel (on Jenn’s site)
Teri Anderson (<— you are here)
Lisa Henke (<——-NEXT STOP! Take it away, Lisa!)
So this is the card I made for the hop!
I just had fun with this one. I created the little scene with the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set and dies from My Favorite Things (plus a cloud stencil from MFT Stamps). The words are from the Winter Wonderland stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh.
My apologies that I’m not really sure where the die-cut hearts came from. I have a little bowl on my desk with leftover stamped and die-cut pieces. I found them at the bottom of it.
To make the hearts and the words stamp out, I added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I really, really, really enjoy the dimension they give cards. A little pop without a lot of bulk. Works for me!
Alright! That’s it for today. Thanks for hopping with me and the whole gang! Don’t forget to stop by Lisa Henke‘s blog (the next stop)! See you again soon!
Me again. Back for another day of super “hoppy” bunny card challenging with Ashley!
This is today’s card.
Another card heavy on patterned paper with just a little bit of stamping.
Here’s my thing. I LOVE (no wait… super duper-sized LOVE) cards that depict scenes. But sometimes I want a simple scene and not one that features a ton of stamped images. Sometimes, I just want a couple cute things to take the stage. So that’s what I was shooting for with this little guy.
I think he turned out pretty cute. The words and bunny are from Lawn Fawn’s Some Bunny stamp set. The carrots are from the Bunny Friends set from Pretty Pink Posh. And the little die-cut hearts? They were cut with dies from Paper Smooches.
The papers yet again came from my little tiny box of scraps. Always enjoy mixing and matching.
Alright! That’s all I have for you. I’ll be back again later, friends.
Thanks, as always, for hopping on by. Be sure check out Ashley’s blog to see her latest card too!
My pal, Ashley, and I are back at it with challenging each other to make cards. We thought it would be fun to do an “All the Bunnies” challenge since we both have been amassing a nice collection of bunny stamps. So here we are, at Day 1 of this new challenge.
Please give it up for today’s card.
Ta-da! This card was truly inspired by the bunny and rainbow, which I colored in a few weeks ago and was just holding onto for “just the right” project. Can you feel me?
The bunny, rainbow and flowers (and words) were all stamped with the Bunny Friends and Best of Luck stamp sets from Pretty Pink Posh. I also did the cutting with the coordinating dies from both sets.
To give the bunny a little extra personality, as well as a little texture, I colored him in with markers and then pounded on some extra dots with my markers. I also added a few additional dots to his belly with my pink Nuvo Crystal Dots. Just a fun little thing to do.
Those little black dots that create the faux circle of sorts around the stamping were also created with Nuvo Crystal Dots. I just love those little bottles of goodness.
Alright. That’s all I have. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog for her first take on this new challenge. I’m sure it will be spectacular! 🙂
Be back again tomorrow with another card for the All the Bunnies challenge. Because. Because why not?
Ps. Who is the winner of the $10 gift certificate from Topflight Stamps from my stop on the 1st birthday blog hop? That’s 3KidMama. Congrats! I’ve sent you an email!
Super duper fun times today! Super duper tickled to be joining the Pretty Pink Posh gang in celebrating PPP’s March release. It’s… just… so… so… so great!
Made a couple cards to share with you that were created with the goods. How about we take a look?
Please meet Card No. 1.
Created this first guy with the help of the Best of Luck stamp set and coordinating Best of Luck dies.
Truly, it is such a delightful set. You’ve got everything you need to make a fun little scene. In fact, I found myself stamping the images from the set over and over and die-cutting them to mock up all sorts of fun scenes.
I just love how the little guy is tossing the coins and shamrock and clover in the air. I opted to color the coins in for this card, but I thought it would be fun in the future to use sequins or some of PPP’s Lemon Drop Jewels on the stamped coins instead.
And meet Card No. 2.
Yep. I once again created a card with the Best of Luck stamps and dies. They are just so fun… and versatile.
This card is a little more graphic than the last one, but it’s still as cute as can be.
And, finally, meet Card No. 3.
This time, I made a card with the Bunny Friends stamps and coordinating dies.
I wanted to add a little texture to the bunny so I used a couple gray markers and added some dots to him. It’s subtle, but I think it’s pretty cool looking. I like how it just adds a little something.
Alright! That’s all I have got for you. Be sure to check out the rest of the hop!
