Another day. Another card.
Just a little something in the key of Paper Smooches to share today. 😉
This one was over on their blog this week.
Created the little bear with the help of the Kind Bear die and two wiggle eyes that were just “dying” to be used. 😉 The little bear? So. Darn. Cute. If you have made cards and scrapbook pages for a long time, you are probably familiar with paper piecing. Remember the hours spent doing that stuff? This die is kind of a fun twist on paper piecing. You cut the die a couple times and then piece all the pieces together to make the cute little bear.
The sentiment? Yep. It’s from Paper Smooches too. It hails from the Kindness Sampler stamp set.
The paper? Well, it was a teeny tiny old sliver of a piece tucked into my scrap basket. I think (key word) it old stuff from Bazzill. Such happy colors and all.
Alright, friends. I got nothing else for you today. Hope you are a having a good one today. Be back again soon.
Managed to sneak in a little bit more fun time this weekend. The end result? This card right here.
The otter, fish and words are all from Julie’s Otterly Awesome stamp set from Ellen Hutson. Must say that it is pretty darn otterly awesome. 🙂 The otter and fish were cut with the coordinating dies. The fact that the otters’ little paws in the stamp set can hold things when cut with the dies just plain slays me. I just plain love that.
Created the blue watery background by slapping some washi tape along the sides of a piece of watercolor paper and then brushing on some blue watercolors. Then I liberally splashed dots of water on top and then took my heat gun to it to dry it all up. I think the end result looks like water. Well, I think.
Alright, kids. This is all I have for now for you. I’ll be back again later. Thanks, as always, for stopping by. You are pretty darn great!
Just a little something to share today.
Made this card recently, just for the fun of it. I haven’t had much time just to play lately. It was really nice to just play.
All the stamps on this guy are from the new Upon A Star stamp set from Lawn Fawn. How, how I love it. I fussy cut the little guys and yellow stars with scissors. (Translation: Teri was el’cheapo when it came to getting the dies for this one… so yeah… scissors were my friend-a-roo. Just keeping it all real, kids. I am nothing but real.)
The little hill was cut with a die from My Favorite Things.
To make the little foxes’ noses stand out, I put little drops onto them with good ol’ Nuvo Crystal Drops. And those little white drops near yellow stars? Yeppers. Created them with Nuvo Crystal Drops too.
Alright! This is what I have for you. Be back later, gators. See you again soon.
Just sharing a card I started last week and finished up this week, just in time for Easter.
The sweet girl + basket and the words are from Pretty Pink Posh, as are the sequins. Let’s be honest: I’m not the best color’er, but, good gosh, people, I try. I colored her in with markers and then added a few extra details with colored pencils and a white gel pen + some Glossy Accents and a Wink of Stella glitter pen (it’s subtle but there on the ears). I think she turned out alright.
The banner was cut with a die from Lawn Fawn (LOVE IT), and the patterned paper is from a stack of paper from My Favorite Things. Crazy thing. I colored the girl in first and went looking for patterned paper. I discovered that I am COMPLETELY lacking in purple patterned papers so I was totally lucky to find this piece in my MFT stash. I guess I could have went to the craft store (Oh, the horror! Hee!) to find something else, but I decided I could make do. Yep. Make do. (Translation: Not allowing myself to be tempted at the craft store by all the other stuff at the craft store seemed like a good idea at the time… because… seriously… who goes for one piece of paper and leaves with just one piece of paper? Not I, people. Not I. Anyhoo, I digress.)
Alright, friends. This is what I have for the day!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Always a treat when you do.
