Got another card to share with you today. This is one I made a bit back for Technique Tuesday with their new Echinacea stamp set and coordinating craft dies.
I am far from a coloring expert, but there’s just something about the flowers in this set that really made me want to color. And so … I did. 😉
Can you believe it? I used markers and it looks… looks… alright! 🙂 Hooray!
The papers behind the doily are just some old patterned papers from my stash-a-roo. And the doily? Well, it’s a real life paper doily from the nearest Cash-n-Carry store! I folded it in half, added a lot of adhesive and then plopped a circle of patterned paper on top of it before adding the stamped flower.
I felt like the card needed a little something extra so I tossed on a couple sequins. Sequins. I’m a fan. They definitely are a hard habit to break.
Alright, guys! That’s all I have for now. Be back later, gators.
Another day. Another stop at the blog with another card-a-roo.
Ok. So here’s the deal: I had so much fun a bit back playing with the Funny Farm Crew stamp set from Your Next Stamp that I felt like making another card with it. The little critters just slay me! So, so fun.
I stamped three critters, colored them in with markers and fussy cut them out with my scissors. Tedious and yet totally worth it! I love the look.
I cut a card panel to fit on the front of my card and die-cut a circle out of it. Then I arranged the animals as you see! That blue behind the circle is ink I just sponged liberally onto the card base. For a little extra pop, I applied some Nuvo Crystal Drops (in white) along the circle’s edge. I like what it adds
The words are from a stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. They have such lovely sentiments.
Alrighty! No more to say today. I’ll be back again in a bit, friends. See you soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
It’s STAMPtember time over at Simon Says Stamp! Once again, they’ve turned September into a stamp-tastic celebration of all things stampy by releasing all kinds of stamps and partnering up with several manufacturers to release even more stamps.
I was tickled as could be to find an envelope in my mailbox a bit back from my pals at SSS with the new Artsy Shapes set, a stamp set they just released for STAMPtember. (Thanks, Heidi!)
Couldn’t resist making a couple cards with the set.
Meet No. 1, and meet No. 2.
These were pretty simple to make! I cut panels of watercolor paper out to fit onto a standard size card and then stamped several of the shapes from the set with Staz-on (waterproof ink) onto watercolor cardstock. Then I just colored them in with watercolors.
I also stamped a phrase onto each panel with Simon’s recently released Encouraging Words stamp set. The typography goes nicely, I think, with the Artsy Shapes set.
Anyhoo, that’s all I’ve got in me today! Be back later, gators.
Just another card to share today.
I lived on the edge and whipped out my markers again. Yes, I did. Everyone breathing OK? Still standing? Hope so… wink?!
I thought the new flower from Technique Tuesday’s Greenhouse Society collection, Ranunculus, was pretty… and, well, looked marker friendly for a non-friendly to markers girl like myself. So I did the marker thing again. 😉
I even did a little shading. Baby steps, people. Baby steps. I have to admit that I had a lot of fun with this one.
By the way, here’s the stamp set.
Love it so much! Ranks high on my favorites list for TT’s Greenhouse Society stamps.
I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by!
