I’ve got something fun over on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. What you ask? It’s an easy way to make your own rainbow with yarn!
I had been thinking about this project for awhile, wanting to make a rainbow. I had made a few with yarn and rope, but I found my rainbows didn’t always keep their form when I adhered them. So I brainstormed and hit the hardware store, where I found… wait for it… vinyl piping! It’s the perfect material for making a rainbow that keeps it’s form!
I’d love for you check out the post. You’ll see exactly how I made this rainbow, as well as the piping, adhesive and other materials I used.
Looking for a way to jazz up your Christmas tree? I recently shared a tutorial over on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L on how to make some super cute ornaments.
These little Christmas tree ornaments were easy to make, although, in full disclosure, it did take me a little bit of time to figure out how get the twine around the bases. Once I did, it was so easy!
I made a few of these to hang on a Christmas tree in my house, plus a few more to use as tags on Christmas packages.
I hope you might take a minute to check out the tutorial for the scoop!
Ps. I’ve also got an easy tag tutorial over there as well. I must have been on a Christmas tree kick as the tag tutorial features Christmas trees too! Only these trees were made with fabric and wire! I hope you will check it out as well.
Back with another card to share. Today’s card is a bit unusual but it was sure fun to put together.
There was a food-inspired card challenge over with Lawn Fawnatics recently. In ended a few weeks ago, but I still wanted to give it a go and make something with my Lawn Fawn food-themed stamp sets so I did. This is what I came up with.
It’s kind of a breakfast scene of sorts. I started out with the toast, butter and toaster from the Let’s Toast set.
Then I felt like it just needed some cute critters added to it. And I had a few critters left over from last time I played with the Hay There set so I pulled them out and added them to the scene.
It’s totally a goofy card but it’s kind of fun … and kinda made me giggle as I made it. Hope it does for you too!
The sentiment was actually created by pairing together words from both stamp sets. I thought it was pretty neat that they had words that worked so well together. That doesn’t always happen with stamps.
For the coloring everything on this card, I used markers. I borrowed a little inspiration too from Kathy Racoosin and pulled my pencils to do a little shading to the toast and toaster. I feel like it really made a difference. Thanks for the inspiration to play and try things, Kathy!
Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later with another card.
By the way, I’ve got a post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog that you might want to check out. It’s a super easy tutorial on how to make tiny skinny cards. They are a great way to use up your patterned paper scraps, plus they are a ton of fun to make.
I guess I’m on a bit of a seal kick as I’ve got another seal card to share with you today. Meet today’s card.
I once again used one of the seals from the Sealiously Sweet stamp set from Sunny Studio. I colored this guy in with markers and then added a layer of clear glaze to the float and glasses. I think it just adds a little something.
I created the plaid panel with cardstock and the Buffalo Plaid embossing folder (also from Sunny Studio). I kinda just wanted to give a hint of water so I took an cosmetic sponge (old school, I know) sponged some blue ink onto the panel. It’s subtle but it does the trick!
The sentiment is also from the Sealiously Sweet stamp set. Let’s be frank. It’s a hot mess underneath. I used a combination of adhesives (Double-Sided Tape and Permanent Dots) to anchor the seal and sentiment together and then add the thread. For kicks, I present you with Exhibit A.
To anchor it on the panel, I had some leftover pieces of 3D Foam Creative Sheets on my desk from other projects I’ve been working on. I cut up a piece and slapped it on the back of the sentiment and seal. I present to you Exhibit B.
Yep. They aren’t going anywhere. Wink.
Oh, by the way, those tiny strips of cardstock. Little trick. I just cut strips of cardstock and then used my markers to try to match the colors I used on the seal’s inflatable.
That’s it for today. I’ll be back later! See you again soon, friends. Thank you for visiting my blog!
Here again with another card to share! Today’s card features two cute little seals.
I stamped these seals (from the Sealiously Sweet stamp set from Sunny Studio) at my last craft night with a few of my local friends, which was before the Pandemic really took hold in the US and things closed up. Gosh, that was like 3 months ago. Anyway, I pulled them out the other day, thinking, “Man, I miss crafting with the gang,” and decided to make something with them.
Honestly, it was just therapeutic coloring them in. I fussy cut them with my scissors. There was a time in my crafty life when I fussy cut ALL THE TIME. And now? Not so much! I forgot how it can be fun but can also take a lot of time.
I created the beach and water strips from cardstock with an old border die from My Favorite Things. I added a little ink to the water to make the seals stand out more.
The sentiment strip was created by stamping some words from the Critter Campouts set on it. Then I anchored it with Crafty Foam Tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. (Have you seen their big rolls? They just introduced them this year. I’ve been a fan for a long time of their foam tape and was thrilled to get a bigger roll to use for my crafting projects!)
Side note! You might be wondering about the stamped hearts! Those are from the Fabulous Flamingos set, also from Sunny Studio. I have quite a few a few Sunny Studio sets with hearts in them. Any would have worked. I just had this set on my desk.
Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back again soon! Thank you for stopping by!
Happy weekend’ing to you! I’m back with another card to share with you.
Today’s little typewriter card was inspired by Jennifer and Kristina’s Woven Windows lesson during Spring Card Camp 2 on Online Card Classes. I keep a little box of scraps by my desk and was like, “Hey, man. I’m going to give that a try.”
So I created the little window on this card with paper strips from that little box. Once I completed the window, I mounted vellum behind it.
I really liked the window and could have just gone with it on the card alone. But I’d stamped the typewriter and mouse (from Lawn Fawn’s Just My Type set) a couple days ago and really, really, really wanted to use them on a card… and I did. 😉 (By the way, the second sentiment on the card is from a Cathy Zielske Simon Says Stamp! set.)
To make the window pop, I did anchor the panel on a lot (and I mean a lot) of Crafty Foam Tape. The tape gives it some nice pop, but not too much. This card can still be mailed and all.
Anyway, I think this card turned out pretty fun. Hopefully, the friend who gets it, enjoys it!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by! I appreciate your kind words! See you again soon!
So many great ideas have been shared so far. Today’s card is just an idea I got in my head and decided to run with it. So let’s get to it. Meet today’s card.
Flying robots with coffee cups! It could happen… wink, wink! 🙂 I found myself giggling as I made this card. I initially planned to make a cute little love scene with a cup of coffee and the two robots and then my mind kinda just took off. (Don’t ask. Just don’t ask.) And my scene evolved into flying robots.
The sentiment, which is from an old My Favorite Things set, just seemed fitting. The swirly doohickey majicky is from MFT Stamps, to, as is the coffee cup.
The robots and hearts are from Lawn Fawn’s Charge Me Up set. Not sure why but robots stamps almost always end up in my crafty arsenal. I always enjoy making cards with them.
I created the background with Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy stencil. Oh and I wanted to mention this. I use a lot of small embellishments. Liquid glue is pretty trendy these days for adhering them, but if you aren’t a liquid glue fan when it comes to embellishment, I highly recommend checking out the Micro Adhesive Dots from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They are really small and work well for sequins.
Alrighty! That’s it! Be sure to check out the hop’s link up. So many great projects! See you again soon! 🙂
These lists are great because you can tuck them in your planner to jot down all the things you need. Then you can pull the list out and tuck it your purse when it comes time to go grocery shopping (or really any kind of shopping).
