Just beboppin’ by quickly with a little something to share. Just one little card I put together the other day while messing around.
The cute animals and herd words are from a stamp set from Your Next Stamp. Picked it up the other day during a super awesome Eclipse day sale at the local craft store. I could not the resist the cuteness and just knew me, the “not-an-expert” coloring kinda of girl, had to get them to color them in. And so I did! They looked fun!
I colored the animals in with markers. I gave the cow and pig a little extra detail with the help of some Nuvo drops by adding a little bit to their noses. I also used some old metallic rub-ons (Hmmmm…. can you even find those anymore?) to add some light pink details to the pig and sheep’s cheeks. Look close and you’ll see there’s also white dots too. Made those with a white pen.
Created the sentiment by combining a sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh with one from the Your Next Stamp stamp set.
I think this card turned out pretty cute! I’m definitely going to be sending this card to one of my crafting buddies pretty darn soon.
Alright! Be back tomorrow for the monthly Paper Smooches blog hop. Hope to see you then!
Just sharing a card I started last week and finished up this week, just in time for Easter.
The sweet girl + basket and the words are from Pretty Pink Posh, as are the sequins. Let’s be honest: I’m not the best color’er, but, good gosh, people, I try. I colored her in with markers and then added a few extra details with colored pencils and a white gel pen + some Glossy Accents and a Wink of Stella glitter pen (it’s subtle but there on the ears). I think she turned out alright.
The banner was cut with a die from Lawn Fawn (LOVE IT), and the patterned paper is from a stack of paper from My Favorite Things. Crazy thing. I colored the girl in first and went looking for patterned paper. I discovered that I am COMPLETELY lacking in purple patterned papers so I was totally lucky to find this piece in my MFT stash. I guess I could have went to the craft store (Oh, the horror! Hee!) to find something else, but I decided I could make do. Yep. Make do. (Translation: Not allowing myself to be tempted at the craft store by all the other stuff at the craft store seemed like a good idea at the time… because… seriously… who goes for one piece of paper and leaves with just one piece of paper? Not I, people. Not I. Anyhoo, I digress.)
Alright, friends. This is what I have for the day!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Always a treat when you do.
Got a little card to share with you today. 🙂
Made this one last week when I just needed a little bit of recharge/refuel creative time. Never got around to sharing it so I am today.
(Insert dramatic effect.)
The little bird is from Julie Ebersole’s Twelve Days stamp set for Ellen Hutson. There’s a little number included on the stamp that I just masked off with tape before inking the stamp and stamping.
Nobody die of shock or anything, but I used MARKERS (… yes, the marker challenged girl…) to color the cutie in. I have been messing with markers more than usual lately. It remains a sweet surprise when things turn out. 😉
The words are from Julie’s Hello Gorgeous set, also from Ellen Hutson.
And the circles and backgrounds? Cut those with a couple dies from My Favorite Things – Wonky Stitched Circles STAX and Snow Drifts Cover-Up. And the sequins? A mix from Pretty Pink Posh, of course.
Alright. That’s what I have for you. Good to see you all again. I’ll be back again later, gators. Take care.
I’m back with a quick card to share with you. I was inspired by the Clean + Simple Christmas Challenge this last week on the Simon Says Stamp! Challenge Blog to make this little card just for the fun of it.
I used mostly older products from Simon Says Stamp! (Christmas Trees and Holiday Frames dies & Handwritten Sentiments and Holiday Layered Trees stamp sets). Plus, I used some paper from the old DIY Christmas collection from Simple Stories + some pretty sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
It’s a pretty straight forward card. Die-cut a frame. Add a tree + cardstock. Pop on a star. Do a little stamping. Be liberal with sequins. Add patterned paper. You get the idea. 😉 Just felt good to have a little fun.
Alright! Over and out. I’ll be back later, gators.
