Another day. Another birthday card for the challenge with Ashley.
Pulled from my scrap pile to make this guy. Use some scrap papers from a couple of the new lines of paper from Jillibean Soup. And the stamps and the words are also from Jillibean.
The balloon works well on shaker cards, but I wanted to stretch myself and try something else. I fashioned my own balloon by cutting a couple circles with some Jillibean dies. I also added the flag (also cut with Jillibean dies) and embellishments to it. Think it turned out kinda fun!
I did something I like to do a lot: I stamped a sentiment on a cardstock strip, added a little twine to it and then adhered it to my card with foam tape. Easy peasy… and fun.
Alright. That’s it for now. Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her latest birthday card!
Me again. Here with another birthday card for the Birthday Card Challenge with Ashley!
So meet today’s card.
Wanted to make a non-traditional card of sort with this one so I ran with using bunnies for it. The bunnies are from the Some Bunny stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
The sentiment was created by pairing together a saying from that set with a birthday sentiment from So Much to Say, another Lawn Fawn set.
The papers on the card are also from Lawn Fawn. The hills were created with a die from My Favorite Things.
Alright, that’s it for now. Be back again later, gators. Don’t forget to hit Ashley’s blog to see what she is sharing today!
Back to the Birthday Card Challenge game with Ashley. We took a few days off to do stuff. She watched basketball… and stuff. I did a couple 5ks… and stuff.
But we are back now. So here’s my latest birthday card for the challenge.
I have a thing for space stuff so I couldn’t resist making a card with the Beam Me Up stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. Seriously, they are just so cute.
The first thing I did was create the space-y background. I created by sponge a bunch of ink colors on white cardstock. Then I added some black color to the mix.
I spritzed the panel with a light misting of water and then a light spritzing of white spray mist. I let it dry and then added the little stamped and die-cut elements.
To give my aliens a little extra personality, I added a few extra dots with black Nuvo Crystal Drops on some of them and a wiggle eye on the middle one. I also added a few dots with my pens.
Finished the card off with the sentiment and a few stamped stars. I colored them in with a white pen and added a few additional white dots.
Anyhoo, that’s what I got. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge today.
Be back tomorrow.
Super tickled to help my friends from Ellen Hutson kick off this month’s Pin-Sights Challenge.
What is the challenge? Well, it’s a monthly challenge! Every month, there’s a Color Trend Inspirational photo put on the CLASSroom blog. The challenge this month?
I was inspired by the color scheme from the challenge and used Copic markers (somewhat similar to the colors) to draw lines across the panel I planned to place on the card. I wasn’t 100% exact, and I think that’s a-OK. Just trying to keep things real here.
I stamped the flower from the Mondo Peony set three times onto the card panel. I also stamped a sentiment from the Warm Fuzzies set. Then I got a little bit fancy. I used the coordinating dies to cut out one of the flowers.
I plopped it on some foam adhesive and added it to the card. Hard to tell in the first picture, but this one shows the little bit of dimension it added.
Pretty cool, huh?!
Well, that’s all I have for you. Be sure to check out the post on The CLASSroom for inspiration. And be sure to link up your take on it over there too!
A random challenge participant will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store. To be eligible, you MUST use Essentials by Ellen products and the photo badge as inspiration. There will be an Inlinkz link up on the challenge post where you can submit your projects.
Super duper fun times today! Super duper tickled to be joining the Pretty Pink Posh gang in celebrating PPP’s March release. It’s… just… so… so… so great!
Made a couple cards to share with you that were created with the goods. How about we take a look?
Please meet Card No. 1.
Created this first guy with the help of the Best of Luck stamp set and coordinating Best of Luck dies.
Truly, it is such a delightful set. You’ve got everything you need to make a fun little scene. In fact, I found myself stamping the images from the set over and over and die-cutting them to mock up all sorts of fun scenes.
I just love how the little guy is tossing the coins and shamrock and clover in the air. I opted to color the coins in for this card, but I thought it would be fun in the future to use sequins or some of PPP’s Lemon Drop Jewels on the stamped coins instead.
And meet Card No. 2.
Yep. I once again created a card with the Best of Luck stamps and dies. They are just so fun… and versatile.
This card is a little more graphic than the last one, but it’s still as cute as can be.
And, finally, meet Card No. 3.
This time, I made a card with the Bunny Friends stamps and coordinating dies.
I wanted to add a little texture to the bunny so I used a couple gray markers and added some dots to him. It’s subtle, but I think it’s pretty cool looking. I like how it just adds a little something.
Alright! That’s all I have got for you. Be sure to check out the rest of the hop!

Thanks for swinging by too! 🙂
March 1st means the new release at Technique Tuesday is live. You’ll find all the new goods right here.
And I’m sharing a project today created with a couple of the new products.
Created this little dude with the new Gertie & Garth Goat stamps and coordinating dies.
I just had fun with this card by stamping several elements from the stamp set, cutting them with the dies and the coloring them in with my trusty old markers.
Created the little scene by pairing everything together. Rather than letting the goat, cans and flowers “float” in the air, I used a cosmetic sponge to sponge a little black ink onto the card. It’s just a simple little thing to do, but it’s a great way to “ground” your stamped images.
You might be wondering about the label. That’s was cut with Technique Tuesday’s Retro Labels dies. I cut it, stamped the image on it and then added a little pop with some foam tape. I always like adding a little extra dimension with foam adhesives.
Alrighty! That’s what I have. Be sure to swing by the Technique Tuesday blog for a list of all the other TT Design Team members sharing projects today. You’ll also find links to their blogs.
I’m here again with another stamped card. I know. Shock. Shock. 😉
Please give it up for today’s card.
Made this one a little bit back. Just getting around to sharing it.
I always like mixing and matching different stamp sets together, and this card was no exception. Created the little hamster scene by pairing the hamster and wheel from Lawn Fawn’s Wheelie Like You set with the heart swirl from the Bugs & Kisses set.
Truly, this card is pretty straight forward. To finish the scene, I added a few dots with a bottle of Nuvo Crystal Drops. I also added a few to the sentiment strip.
Oh, and the papers? They are from Lawn Fawn too.
Not much more to say. Be back again later. Thanks, as always, for swinging by.
