Here yet again on the old blog-a-roo. Sharing a card I put together last week that I just plain had fun putting together.
Made this guy with a couple new Technique Tuesday products: the Cascading Hearts border die and the Simply You 2.0 stamps. I also used their Retro Labels dies (from their Fresh Cut Studio collection of dies).
So how did I do the hearts? Well, I cut a card base from white cardstock. I folded it in half, opened it up and then placed the heart die right onto it. I ran it through my Big Shot machine and ended up with that cool heart border.
The border was cool, but it needed more so I added some strips of patterned paper to the inside of the card. I also added a few a sequin and a few drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I think it turned out pretty nice!
Alrighty, friends! That’s all I got! I’ll be back later, gators.
Thanks for swinging by.
Been a few days since I have been here. Got a card to share with you.
Made this guy the other day just for fun.
The cacti and words were stamped with the new A Little Prickly stamp set from Technique Tuesday. I also used the coordinating dies.
Got a bit fancy with my markers by adding a little shading and some dots (for extra detail) to both cactus plants. The dots are such a fun way to make an image pop.
The patterned papers came from an old Studio Calico pad of paper from a kit from a long time ago. Not sure who designed them.
I added a few other little touches to this card: a couple dots near the sentiment (made with Nuvo Crystal Dots) and a few stitches (made with my trusty needle and spool of floss… wink.).
Alright! That’s all I got. Be back later.
Thanks, as always, for stopping on by. You guys rock’eth.
Squeezing in one last card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
Had this little coffee image from Art Impressions sitting on my desk since last week. It was all colored up and good to go so I ran with it and slapped together this little card.
The lady kinda of reminds me of some of the sweet ladies my mom and grandma used to bowl with it for years and years. 🙂 Some of the nicest ladies around.
The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set I designed called Sassy Coffee.
It was tough picking which phrase to use. I do like cards with a sassy feel.
Alrighty! Short and sweet this post shall be! Thanks, as always, guys, for stopping by! I appreciate the visits and your kindness!
Me again! Shocked? Been on a bit of a card roll and couldn’t resist sharing one more quick card made in honor of the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
Drum roll, please. Here we go.
It was quick to make this one. Had the stamps so… just wanted to play.
The cup and assorted cup-like things are all from Lawn Fawn’s Pumpkin Spice set. Yes, so, so cute… and a must for a Pumpkin Spice Latte lover, although it could totally pass off for cocoa. Don’t you agree?
The words from the Perk Up set from Technique Tuesday.
Always fun to pair two sets together that are different styles but have the same theme going on. Mixing and matching really does make me happy.
Used my trusty white Nuvo Crystal Dots to add some subtle dots with the shaking scene that’s going on. Super simple but a fun way to add a little kick to a card.
Anyhoooo, that’s what I got. Be sure to swing by the hop. So many great cards! Bravo to all the participants!
Hi guys !
Back on the old blog-a-roo with another card to share! Couldn’t resist making something in honor of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.
So meet today’s card.
Just had fun here, letting the frame cutting die-cut lead me on where to place the stamped images.
The cups, beans, heart, steam and words are all from the Perk Up stamp set, which (in full disclosure here) I designed for Technique Tuesday.
I did all the coloring on the card with markers. I was trying to be all cool and stuff so I added a little shadow at the bottom of each cup with a darker marker and then blended in the color with the lighter marker. The shadow on the cups is subtle but I think it looks kinda cool.
I did the same thing with the coffee beans too. 🙂
I wish I had more to say to you, but it’s the end of the weekend. I’m tired. The writing tank is dry so that’s what I got. I’ll try to give you a wordier post next time.
But be sure to swing by the Bloghop to see lots of other cool coffee-themed projects. Always so fun to see what everyone comes up with!
See you again soon, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Another day. Another card.
Sharing a new one today, created with a couple new stamp sets from Technique Tuesday: the Hello Owl and the Sassy Days stamp sets. The Sassy Days set is one of my latest designs for TT. My buddy Tam drew the owl for the Hello Owl set.
I stamped the owl three times on cardstock and just used my markers to color him in three different ways. I love how he is the same bird but the different colors make him look different. Kinda fun.
I wasn’t feeling like making this a regular old all occasion card so I added a sentiment from the Sassy Days. Pretty sure ANY of them could have worked on this card. Ha!
Alright. That’s all I have. Be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for dropping by.
PS. If you have made anything with the stamps or dies I’ve designed for TT, please link me up. I’d love to see your work!
