Back again with another take on the Thinking of You Card Challenge with Ashley.
Today’s card features some images from the Flopsy Forest Friends stamp set from Ink Blot Shop. It’s a new one. (It’s available over on Simon Says Stamp! too.)
The words are from the Hello Lovely stamp set, also from Ink Blot Shop.
I once again used my awesome cheap markers I found on Amazon to do the coloring. I also did a little creative masking to merge the mouse and stump together, so to speak.
The papers are all from my box of scraps. Always love mixing and matching patterned papers together and seeing what I come up with.
To add a little extra detail to the scene, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in orange, pink and black. (The black is on the fox’s nose. It’s kinda hidden, but trust me, it’s there.)
That’s what I got. Once again, don’t forget to check out Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge. She’s got the cutest card today… in my “professional” card loving opinion and all. (Wink!)
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.
Back again with a card to share with you! Because… that’s what I do. Wink!
Just a “for fun” card!
Created this goofy little scene with the new Let’s Flamingle stamps and dies from My Favorite Things. They just came out. (Thank you, sweet friend, who shared them with me.)
Flamingos have a special place in my heart. Many plastic flamingos have graced my yard over the years. They humor me greatly. 😉
I thought it would be fun to create a goofy scene with them so I die-cut, stamped and colored several drink glasses for my scene. I even added some “salt” to them with glitter glue.
I initially had planned to have all the glasses surround one of the ‘mingos, but I made a last minute decision that one should serve as a hat too. Because… it made me chuckle. Hopefully it does for you too!
By the way, you might be wondering about the background behind the flamingos. I created that sky with the help of MFT’s Cloud stencil. It’s such a fantastic tool for making scene cards. I’d totally recommend getting one to anyone who likes to make stamped scenes.
Anyway, that is all I have for you. Thanks for taking the time to check out my card today.
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.
It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday, and I’ve got a new card created with new stuff to share with you. (<—-Say that new thing ten times fast.)
Meet today’s card.
Created this bad boy with a couple new products from Technique Tuesday, the Cool Tools dies and the What a Guy stamp set. (You’ll see them and all the other new goods here.)
I cut the tools from white cardstock and then used my markers to add color to them. And then I assembled them together for the card.
I created my background for the card with various scraps of patterned paper from my shoebox of scraps.
The sentiment? It hails from the What a Guy stamp set. I think any old sentiment that is guy-worthy would work with this card. (Or maybe a girl-sentiment would work for a tool loving DIY girl!)
Alright! That’s what I have. Be sure to check out the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other Design Team members sharing projects created with the new goods today. So much good stuff!
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!
