Another day. Another card to share.
Such a fun little scene to put together!
Most of the images and words are from Lawn Fawn’s Gleeful Gardens stamp set. I also used the coordinating dies.
As it warms up here, mushrooms have begun popping up in my yard. If only the mushrooms in my yard were so delightful as the ones in the stamp set. 😉
I once again created the cloudy background with the help of My Favorite Things’ Cloud stencil. Boy, how I love that tool.
That’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
Back again on the blog-a-roo with another card to share with you.
Give it up for today’s card.
Made this guy in my quest to ink up some the stamps in my stash that haven’t seen much love in awhile. The words and squirrel (and squirrel-ly images) are all from Papertrey Ink.
Did all the coloring with markers. Wasn’t super strict about it looking flawless. Just kinda ran with the coloring here.
Once again, I raided my box of scraps. The hearts (leftover from other projects) and patterned papers are from the box. Always nice to use them.
I also whipped out some sequins and twine. Always fun to add them to a card.
Alright. That’s it for today. Be back again later, gators. Hope you are off to a good week!
The Valentine challenge with Ashley is over but I’m sneaking in with one bonus card for it. It seemed like a pity to not share so here I am… again.
Keeping with my theme of trying to use stamps that haven’t been inked much, I whipped out a little stamp set from Papertrey Ink. Always liked the Heart-2-Heart #4 set. You just can’t go wrong with cute little telephone stamps… in my professional stamp loving opinion and all.
I die-cut the telephone 3 times and stamped on top. Then I sponged a little ink onto my card base. I added the phones, a stamped sentiment and a few stamped hearts. I also added a few drops of black Nubo crystal drops.
I like how those drops always add just the right amount of something!
So that’s all I have for today. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her all takes this week on the challenge. Such fun stuff.
And one more thing, if you haven’t done a challenge lately, I’m going to encourage you to do one. Find one online or draft a friend to do it with you. It’s such a great way to get those creative juices flowing… and to relax a little from life. Doing stuff for you is fun sometimes, ya know? See you again soon, friends.
Back again with a card to share.
My pal, Ashley, suggested we challenge each other again to make cards. This time, we’re making cards for Valentine’s Day.
Here’s my take for Day 1.
I took it upon myself for the challenge to pull out some stamps I’ve had and haven’t given a lot of inky love to. This viking stamp? Totally unloved. Shameful, I tell you. Shameful.
I stamped the viking (from Avery Elle) a few times on cardstock and then stamped him off a couple times on my white card panel. I colored in the first few vikings with markers, fussy cut them with my scissors and then stacked ’em up.
I may (or may not be) a wiggle eye addict. Fact. So yeah. I added a couple wiggle eyes to the top guy’s face. Just something about them makes him extra fun.
All those little hearts in the background. They are stamps from the viking set too. It was fun to just kinda go crazy and stamp them a lot!
So yeah. That’s all I have today.
Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge! See you again tomorrow.

So let me show you what I’ve got.
Ta-da! I played around with the new Boob Tubes dies that work perfectly with the coordinating Boob Tubes stamp set.
I wanted to do something different so I cut and stamped three TVs and stacked them up. I used Paper Smooches’ class Party Posse stamp set to the stamp the critters onto the screens.
To give the card a little dimension, I applied glossy accents the TV buttons, as well as on the critters eyes and noses. That gives them just the right amount of pop, in my opinion.
Well, that’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. Hope to see you again soon. (I hope.)
