Here again with a card to share with you. Because… that’s what I do.
Take it away, Today’s Card.
And the crowd goes wild! Wink!
Created this guy with the Billy Silly Goats stamp set that was just released by Ink Blot Shop. (It’s also available right here over at Simon Says Stamp!) My friend, Tifany, (the sweet soul behind Ink Blot Shop) let me play with the stamps a little early and this little card is the result.
There’s all kinds of silly goat-y goodness in the stamp set. All kinds of cute little boy and girl goats.
This little one cracked me up so, you know, had to make a card.
I stamped the little guy on cardstock. I used some (I swear to you, people, I could not make this up if I tried) cheap-o markers (and freaking awesome markers) I picked up on Amazon for a whopping $20 to do the coloring and then did a little fussy cutting. I sponged a little blue ink onto a card and stamped the little fella again. I adhered the fussy cut goat on top (with 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, which are my go-to dimensional adhesive).
And then I stamped a couple more cans, some hearts and those words. I did a little more coloring and added some white dots around the image. I also added some patterned paper and some staples (for good measure). 😉
Anyway, in the end, it turned out pretty good, if I do I say so myself.
Alright! That’s what I go. Be back again soon, friends.
Do you like to use embellishments on your cards and scrapbook pages? I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today.
I’m sharing a card and giving some tips on how make some DIY embellishments with the 3D Foam products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and foil!
It’s so easy and so stinking fun. Hope you’ll check it out!
Thanks, as always, for stopping on by. I’ll be back again later, gators.
Sharing a layout, not a card, I created with Sassy Camera, a new stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday that comes out today in honor of National Scrapbook Day.
First, before I talk about the layout, let me give A HUGE thank you to Heather Hoffman, who kindly provided the picture I used on this layout. It’s such a fun picture that was taken while she and her friends were at Creativation this year. (Thank you, guys.)
So about the layout. I stamped all the phrases, cameras and photo frames with the stamp set. Oh, and the stars too! I also used the coordinating dies, which went on sale today too.
The layout’s background was created by just mixing together a bunch of patterned paper scraps with cardstock, plus some washi tape. You’ll see that washi tape in the top corner of the picture. There were also a few dots added to the layout with Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Oh and that text on the picture? I went old school, pulling out letters from my stash of letter stickers and label tape.
If you think you might like to own the Sassy Camera stamp set, it’s a good weekend to snatch it up. You can get it for free through Sunday when you make a $30 or more purchase through TT’s website. This graphic has the scoop on how to get the set for free.
Alright! See you again soon, friends.
Thanks for stopping by.
Back again with a couple more projects to share with you that I made with some of the new goods that will debut on the Technique Tuesday website on May 1st.
Please give it up for Card No. 1.
This was a fun one to make. I used to the new Sassy Guy set to stamp all the images and words.
In full disclosure, I contributed to the set. And I must admit that I ran every saying in the set by guys as I wanted the set to have phrases that could be used on cards that would, well, make guys smile. My feelers passed the test and so the set came to be.
The patterned papers are all from my stash-a-roo. I always enjoy making my own little background with scraps and so that’s what I did here.
Meet Card No. 2.
I created this rainbow-style graduation card with the new Congrats Grad stamp set. This set is pretty cool because it’s a 4×6 set. The images and words in it are as such that you can use the set to make cards … or scrapbook pages. It’s always nice to have stamps that give you a lot of bang for the buck.
Alright! That’s it for today.
Once again, be sure to hit the New Products page on the Technique Tuesday website. ALL the new stamps and dies (not just the ones I featured) will be available on the 1st.
Also be sure to stop by the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other design team members sharing projects today.
Technique Tuesday’s next release happens on May 1st so the design team is joining the countdown fun in sharing some projects made with some of the new goods today.
I’m excited to share with you something I made with the new What a Guy stamps and dies.
Rather than making a card, I made this simple little layout.
The little guy? He’s the nephew of my friend, Tam, who provided the picture for me to use. (The layout will go to her sister, who I hope likes it.)
All the tools were stamped with the stamp set and then colored in with markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
The words on the label are also from the What a Guy stamp set. I did added my own little personal touch to the stamped words by adding a couple dots with a white pen to them. With that font, I think that looks pretty cool!
The label? You might be wondering about it. It’s from the previously released Retro Labels dies. It’s a good set of dies that I used often.
Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to check out Technique Tuesday’s New Release page on May 1st. That’s when all the new products will be there.
Also, swing by the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the design team members sharing projects today.
Be back again tomorrow! Hope to see you then!
Back again with another stamped card to share with you.
Meet today’s card.
Just a little “for fun” card that came as the result of messing around once again with the Three Amigos stamp set (and coordinating dies) from Mama Elephant.
I just love the little signs the animals hold in the stamp set. And I love that they are blank so you can really do all kinds of things with them.
I wanted to make a card for a friend, who is always there for everyone with a kind word and hug, so I went with these phrases. I easily could have turned this into a birthday card to give to another friend instead by using different words.
I was pretty pleased with the card when I added the stamped images to it, but I felt like it needed some extra pop so I used Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a circle (Look really, really really close! It’s black!) to the die-cut circle. Then I used white Nuvo Crystal Drops to make a white dot border outside the black circle.
I also added some dots with red Crystal Drops to my little stamped, colored (with markers) and die-cut hearts.
I think the dots just add the right little something to a card.
Anyway, that’s it for today. I’ll be back again later, friends. See you soon.
Back again to share another card created for the Lawn Fawn Challenge with my pal, Ashley!
Meet today’s card.
I was dying to make a card with the Party Panda stamps and dies set that you can get this year during your birthday month with Lawn Fawn. So the panda and bamboo (times 2) were stamped and cut with the set.
The conversation bubbles were stamped and cut with the A Little Birdie Told Me stamps and dies. I thought it would be fun to make it look like the little panda bears were talking to each other.
Alright! That’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later.
Be sure to check to out Ashley’s blog once again to see her latest take on the challenge.
