Me again with another handmade stamped card to share with you. Today’s card is super… well, it features some super duper heroes. Super heroes, that is.
Meet today’s card.
I just had fun the other day, coloring in these two heroes from the new Super Duper stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. In full disclosure: I’ve been on a big super hero kick for awhile so I totally gravitated toward this set!
I stamped the two heroes on cardstock, colored them in with markers and fussy cut them with my scissors. My fussy cutting wasn’t exactly perfect so I used a trick from one of my friends: I took a black marker and ran it along the edges. Easy peasy. And a super nice way to cover up the boo boos.
The clouds are some I stamped and die-cut while working a bit back with the Sunnyville stamp set from Paper Smooches. Always fun when you can mix and match different products together.
Oh, you might be wondering about the background! It’s one I made awhile ago while messing around with watercolors and watercolor paper. I added a couple stamped stars to it when I put it on the card. I used a colored pencil to add a little color to each star as well.
Alright. That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
Feeling the card making bug the last few days. Back with another card to share with you. Today’s card is coffee-themed.
A unicorn holding a coffee cup? Yes. Yes, indeed!
The image (from the Unicorn Ice Castle stamp set from Flora & Fauna) truly inspired this card. It’s Christmas stamp set, but that didn’t hold me back. I mean, hello, coffee. I could send something with this little lady on it all year long to one of my friends.
I created the background by sponging ink in a circle on my card and then drawing a circle with a black pen. To add some interest to the sky, I stamped some stars (with the Peek-a-Boo Pals set from Avery Elle) and added some dots with a white pen and white Nuvo Crystal Drops.
The sentiment was created by pairing together sentiments from stamp sets from Avery Elle and My Favorite Things. Fun how they look like they were made to go together. A happy discovery indeed.
Alright. That is it for now.
Oh wait! One more thing! Speaking of unicorns, have you seen my unicorn enamel pin? I made him awhile back, offering him at Plannercon. I put her up in an Etsy shop. (You can also find him at Simon Says Stamp! and Doodlebugs. Both are wonderful places to pick up crafty things… and enamel pins too!)
Back again with a card that uses a stamp set I’ve not given a lot of love to in awhile, All Inside by Julie Ebersole from Ellen Hutson.
I feel like saying, “Hello, old friend,” when talking about this stamp set. I have loved this stamp set for so long, but it just hasn’t seen a lot of love lately from me. And since I’ve been trying to give a little more love to those stamp sets I’ve had for a long time and haven’t inked up in awhile, I decided it was a good time to bring it back to my craft table.
I didn’t go super crazy on coloring the bear. Instead I grabbed a couple gray markers and added a few highlights (or shadows) on to the bear’s fur. It’s subtle and a fun look I think.
It was sure fun creating this little scene for the card. The bear’s basket and flowers were stamped with the Bear Ware stamp set (and coordinating dies). It’s a really a fun way to sauce up the bear and make him (or her) unique.
I felt like this little bear just need something extra so I added a dog. I love how the little dog is looking up so lovingly! Hehe! I stamped the dog with the Animal Sweaters set from Flora & Fauna. Yes, it’s a Christmas set… but so many images can easily be used to make cards all year round. I love that.
The card’s friendly sentiment is also from the All Inside stamp set. A little secret: I cut the panel a little too big and had adhere it to the card so I fixed it by stamping a few polka dots with Patternology stamp set from Paper Smooches. I had to do a little masking off the end of the panel to make sure no stray marks ended up on my card, but it was well worth it!
Alright. That is it for me today. I hope you enjoyed checking out this friendship card. I’ll be back again later, friends.
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.

I had so much fun making this card! Rainbows and patterns = lots and lots of love!
Created the background of the card by using a few different stamps from the new Patternology stamp set. It is fun to make one big pattern with one of the stamps, but it is also fun to mix and match the different patterns together. I also added a heart cut with the heart from the new Health dies.
I wanted to send this card to one of my friends. I hate really serious cards so I paired together some words from the new Inverted Greetings set and the previously released Delightful Greetings stamp set. I sure dig the label style of the Inverted Greetings words!
Alrighty! That is it for now, friends. I’ll be back again later. Thanks again for stopping by my blog-a-roo! It’s always a pleasure to see your sweet comments. Thank you!
Sneaking in, under the wire, with just one more card for the Spring | Summer 2019 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Just having fun, playing around, with this card. The cups were created with the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set (and Daddy Yo Icons dies) from Paper Smooches. The stamp set is a guy-themed set, but it’s possible with the elements in it to make girl coffee cup. 🙂
My go-to colors for a “girl” coffee cup are pink and red, but I decided to throw caution to the wind this time and make a purple cup. It’s a color I don’t often color with.
Oh, and just for kicks, I decided to make the girl cup’s glasses seem a little more real by adding a few small drops of Glossy Accents to the lenses. Just a fun little touch.
The words are from the Dude Sampler stamp set, also from Paper Smooches.
Ok! That’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by. Once again, before to check out the hop. So many amazing projects. Great job, everybody!
