Just wanted to share a few cards with you today that I’ve not gotten around to sharing over here on the old blog-a-roo.
All of these cards were created with stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.
This simple “hello” card features the Courteous Cuties stamps and dies and Best Buds stamp set and dies.
I was just having fun here by stamping the monsters (from the We Adore You stamp set and dies) a couple times and stacking them up. I’ve been using markers quite a bit lately, but I decided to throw caution to the wind with this one and use pencils instead. It’s nice to try something different from the norm.
This is probably my favorite thank you card as of late. I made this guy with Paper Smooches’ Boom Bots stamp set (and dies). I just love robots!
Alright! That’s what I have for you. I’ll be back again later, gators.
Happy Monday to you! I’m back with another stamped card to share with you…. just “fur” fun.
Get it? Hehe! Couldn’t resist.
I just couldn’t help myself with making another dog card… just for the fun of it. I used a couple dog-themed stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps, Party Pups and Devoted Doggies, for this one. These stamp sets are great because they are cool to use on their own, but they are also great to use together.
I colored the three dogs independently of each other. Just a happy coincidence that I used shades of gray for each one. I fussy cut them out. (Yep, I’m old school.) And then I adhered them on the card. I thought about being greedy and putting each on dog on his card, but they looked so cute together so I ran with it.
The sentiment isn’t really curved. I just bent the stamp as I placed it on my block. After I stamped it on my card, I stamped a paw print on each side. I thought it, well, just plain looked cute.
Anyhoo, that is what I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. See you again soon. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday. I’m here to show you a couple new projects today that feature the new Bubbles on the Border die, plus some of the other new stamps.
So let’s do this. Meet card no. 1.
I used the border die to add the bubbly border to the top of my card. And then I took a few of the circles to add “bubbles” to my scene, which was created with the new Simon & Sandy Seahorse stamp set and dies.
You’ll see I also added a few clear bubbles to the scene. Added those bad boys with Glossy Accents. 😉
And meet card no. 2.
For this one, I created a bubbly background of sorts by cutting the border out of three pieces of cardstock and then layering them together. It’s so not how TT intended to use these dies, but I’m one who likes to go against the grain sometimes when it comes to paper craft stuff. I think it turned out pretty fun actually.
Alright! So that’s what I have for you. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. And be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday website to see all the new goods.
Thanks for stopping by!
Back again to share another Technique Tuesday project as TT gears up for their new release on Sunday.
Today’s card features new Happy Hydrangea stamp set and dies from their Greenhouse Society collection.
This is a really pretty stamp set. It includes some little flowers that you can stamp elsewhere on your card, or you can stamp again and add to the bigger bloom.
It has an interesting effect on the bigger grouping of flowers.
Just for show, here’s how the big bloom looks without the little flowers.
And here’s how it looks with them.
The cool thing is there is no real rhyme or reason to the little flowers so you can basically get away with placing as many or as few as you want… and wherever you want them.
Alrighty. That’s all I have for today. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see the products being revealed today and to see whoelse from the design team is sharing projects today.
Also be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday website to see all (and snag) all the new products.
July 1st is almost here, and Technique Tuesday is gearing up for the new release with their new release countdown.
I’m tickled to bring you a couple cards today created with the new Bugs & Kisses stamp set.
Meet card No. 1.
This little stamp set is just a stamp set. There are no dies for it at this time. Don’t let that deter you. The images are super easy to cut out with your scissors… or look good on paper, just stamped right onto your paper.
I really wanted the bugs to stand out on this card so I stamped them onto white cardstock, colored them in with markers and then cut them out with my scissors. You’ll see I also stamped a few of them a second time right onto the card. (I didn’t want to mess with cutting out the one bug’s tiny lines.)
And meet card no. 2.
I did the same thing with this card, stamping the bugs on cardstock and fussy cutting them out with my scissors. Again, didn’t want to mess with the tiny parts so I stamped the bugs again onto my card. To make their bodies pop, I adhered them to my card with foam squares. Perfect for giving a little pop!
Alright! That’s what I have for you.
You’ll find this stamp set (and the rest of the new release from Technique Tuesday) here on July 1st.
And you’ll find links to all the other TT design team members sharing projects today on the Technique Tuesday blog. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created! Such a talented bunch of ladies!
Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
Back with another stamped card to share with you. This is a fun one I put together with a few images I stamped a few months ago while crafting the weekend away with friends.
I have to be honest: This card made me laugh as it came together. I worked on it over a couple days and, eventually, told myself I just had to stop adding to the goofy little scene.
There is quite a bit of mixing and matching here. I used stamps from Heffy Doodle (the alligator, lion, champagne bottle), Mama Elephant (the words), Lawn Fawn (the stars) and Sunny Studio Stamps (the cupcake).
I wanted some of the elements on the card to stand out (the cupcake, bottle and the “OMG” bubble) so I used some Thin 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere them to the card. The thin squares are perfect because they add just a little bit of pop but not too much.
This card might end up being used as a birthday card for a friend. Or I might just send to to an awesome friend, who will hopefully get a kick out of it. We’ll see. But it was fun to make.
Thanks for stopping by today. See you again.
I’m here yet again with a card to share with you so please give it up for today’s card.
And the crowd goes wild! (I kid. I kid.)
This card actually started a few months ago when I was able to to stamp the little elephants (from Fly with Me by Mama Elephant) at a retreat with some of my crafty friends. One of my friends kindly let me borrow the set and so I stamped quite a few images to bring home.
Let’s be honest: I didn’t quite know at the time what I was going to do with the, but I thought they were dang cute and would eventually be used by me to make something. And, so yeah, this card happened. 😉
I did all the coloring with my trusty Caliart markers ($20 on Amazon, people! Such a deal!). No real rhyme or reason to my coloring, other than I had fun adding some color to each one.
The sentiment is also from Mama Elephant. The set is called Smitten, but I am guessing it’s retired because I can’t find it on their website anymore. Still…. it provided a great little sentiment for this little card of mine.
That’s it for me today, friends. I’m all blog post posted out. I’ll be back again later.
