More Sneaks from Technique Tuesday!

Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s March Release Countdown! Let’s see if I can get your goat… πŸ™‚

(If you missed my post yesterday, click HERE to head over there and see those fun new goodies too!)

Today, I am sharing a fun new set called Gertie and Garth Goat! I so ❀ that name Gertie! πŸ™‚ There are coordinating dies available for them HERE too! (These links will work when the products are available tomorrow, March 1st!)

I didn’t have the coordinating die when I made this card, so please overlook the fussy cutting. πŸ˜‰ I think this is such a fun card to give to a family welcoming a new little one! πŸ™‚I blended on Distress Oxide inks and added a few splatters afterward. I then stitched the whole panel on and added my watercolored Gertie Goat. πŸ™‚

Be sure to head over the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE so you can link to everyone’s projects! I can’t wait to see everything that was made too! πŸ™‚

Be sure to check out the NEW products from Technique Tuesday HERE! The new products shown above will be available via those links Tomorrow, Thursday, March 1st! πŸ™‚

I’ll catch you back here again tomorrow for RELEASE DAY and another card!

Technique Tuesday March Sneaks!

Hello and welcome to my first sneak of Technique Tuesday’s March Release! Can I call it a sneak if I share the whole card? Well, I am. πŸ™‚ Haaaa!

This new TT release has a little bit for everyone! Lots of love sharing today, but there is more, I promise! πŸ˜‰

Oh goodness! How fun is this heart puzzle? This die is called: Pieces of My Heart and the stamp set I used is called Love You to Pieces. (These links will work once the products go live on March 1st, Release Day!)

I blended some Distress Oxide ink on cardstock and then die cut the heart three times over. I think they turned out great and I already gave this one to my Grandmother. πŸ™‚

Next up, I used the new Love Puzzle die! And again, the new stamp set, Love You to Pieces.

I kept this one pretty simple. I used score lines on the base panel to add a little texture. I think it would be fun to just use the letters on their own too! I’ll have to try that next. πŸ™‚

Be sure to check out the NEW products from Technique Tuesday HERE! These new products above will be available via those links on Thursday, March 1st! πŸ™‚

And follow the new release over at the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE! πŸ™‚ Good stuff!

I’ll catch you back here again tomorrow for another preview! Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Happy Happy Happy!

Well, here we are. Sunday. I have a love/hate with Sunday. πŸ™‚

I’m popping in with another card I made for Technique Tuesday this past month. I love me some Happy! This set is the Happy Happy Happy set! What a great name huh? And there is a coordinating die HERE. I used the little banner from it. πŸ™‚

I love the font of this happy, so I just used it over and over! Nothing says happy like a rainbow!

If you missed the announcement last week, there is a new Technique Tuesday team in the house! Hooray! Quite excited and feeling fortunate to be working with these creative people!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Technique Tuesday release HERE! Lots of exciting posts coming from me this week too! See you back here Tuesday! So fitting. πŸ˜‰

Have a great week!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

School Love

Happy Fri-YAY right? I’m not sure how I feel about that term, but I was writing Friday and Hooray, so went for it! πŸ˜‰

For these cutie Paper Smooches cards today, I used the following Paper Smooches: Smarty Pants and Dies, Notebook Basic Die, andΒ  Cuteasauras.

I colored all these with Copic Markers and added them to the Notebook die.

Eeeep so cute! I love when something simple turns out so awesomely sweet! πŸ™‚

This last one lost it’s crayon. I’m not sure if I didn’t color enough or if someone small who lives here nabbed it before I put it on a card! Haaa! πŸ™‚

I just love that little inch worm! And the pencil, of course! Easily some of my favorite Paper Smooches stamps–but I bet I say often, don’t I? Just ❀ PS! πŸ™‚
I cannot wait to give these to my son and his teacher. πŸ™‚
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

You are Crafty and Kind!

Hello! I’m popping in tonight to share a card I finally made! I tinkered around with these die cuts for quite some time, and then this happened. Ha!

If you look at it,Β  you can see it is wonky right? I’m thinking I should have left two more “triangles” out to make it less awkward overall. Arranging them this way doesn’t quite make a complete “star”. There isn’t quite enough room. πŸ˜‰ But it is what it is and nothing is coming off now, since it’s all stitched down! πŸ™‚

I looooove this Essentials by Ellen Silver Linings die and I was hoping to do something more with it too. But wow, has time been elusive! I usually craft in late evenings after all of everything, but lately I’ve had so many other things. It’ll pass hopefully! I need that time back to make stuff and exercise that part of my brain. I always feel better. πŸ™‚

I super enjoy this fun sentiment from this Essential by Ellen set: Crafty Ladies Say.

I wanted to participate in the latest Ellen Hutson’s Pin-sights Challenge! I so dig this color inspiration and yet, I feel that I didn’t quite capture it fully. Things went a different direction that I initially planned! Doesn’t that happen often or what?! Haaaaa!

Check it out and join in! There’s still a few days to jump in!Β  πŸ™‚

I’ll be back tomorrow morning with another FEW cards! ❀

Thanks for stoppin’ in!

Love

Hope you are ready to jump-start your weekend?! I’m always glad for the reprieve of packing lunch! How funny is that? πŸ™‚

For my card today, I used the following Paper Smooches products: Smoocheroos, Postage Stamp Dies, Inchies Dies. I really wanted to try to use the smallest stamps in the Smoocheroos set and see if I could make a card work. I like it!! πŸ™‚ Such fun to use the “less obvious” stamps in a set.

I like how those little guys ended up being the focal point. πŸ™‚

They are super cute, right? Awwww! I used Hero Arts Ombre Pad for the background sentiment. Worked out well–less guess-work! Hooray! πŸ™‚
We have another busy weekend ahead, but in a few weekends , I see a little space on the calendar…. shhhhhhh! πŸ™‚ We’ll need it!
Thanks for stopping by today and take care–

Souper Soon!

We have a pretty good stack of snow here and it is currently snowing! I don’t mind if we have nowhere to go.. However, today we are heading out during a lull, I think? Ha! We’ll see! πŸ™‚

Anywho, I thought I share a card I colored with Copic Markers for The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Challenge yesterday! Day 26 already! Wow!

These little cuties are from Taylored Expressions called Souper Soon….and they make me smile! Hopefully this will cheer up someone who may need it! πŸ™‚

I think they are adorable, and of course, I had to add a couple of googley eyes. I created the background masking and using Distress Oxide Inks (Salted Ocean and Lucky Clover) and a black pen. I thought it turned out fun! πŸ™‚

I used both 80lb and 110lb Neenah white cardstock and stitched it all together. πŸ™‚

Alrighty, that’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is warm and cozy!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚
