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!
