Hola! Thought I’d pop in and freshin’ things up a bit here. I have been busy working on some cards for April and going forward, but wanted to share a quick little cute with you! 🙂
These stamps are from Avery Elle and they are adorable! I thank my friend Amy for letting me borrow them to stamp! 🙂 They are called Party Pals and can be found HERE and their dies HERE.
eeeeeep! Their little squinty faces! 🙂
They are so sweet, holding their little signs!
I VERY rarely use any accoutrements to decorate my cards, so this was extra fun to pick out a few and work with them (see supply name below). These awesome frames whip up cards so fast! love that!
I used Pink Paislee’s Pick Me Up Patterned Paper and Ephemera. Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine sent these to me for having a card in the recent issue. Have you seen THAT, by the way!!? I am so fortunate to have three cards in this awesome issue! This magazine is has a great layout and flawless writing that you WANT to read! I haven’t submitted since PC&S (RIP) went down, so this is ALL VERY exciting for me!! 🙂 Such fun to hold a REAL MAGAZINE and bonus to find your own cards there in it! Check it out online OR pick up a hard copy at Barnes & Noble.
I colored everything with Copic markers and and used the Pink Paislee to fill in the rest, adding a little stitching of course. 😉
Thanks for stopping by! ❤
Take care– Jill 🙂
Happy Almost Christmas! Just popping in to share a couple *Thank You* notes. One I made back in the fall and forgot to share, and this holiday one I made last night. Because: Crafty therapy! 🙂
Eeeeep is this the cutest little sleigh full or what? 🙂 I used Avery Elle’s Sledding Critters and the coordinating die HERE. For the background I blended on Cracked Pistachio Oxide ink. ❤
I used Copic Markers to color these cuties and added Glossy Accents, Wink of Stella, and some Nuvo drops. So fun! I ❤ THIS stamp from Avery Elle, so naturally this is the winter counterpart 😉 . (Check out a card I made with the Birthday Bus stamp/die HERE!)
Next up, I made the Thank You card below using THIS unique stamp from Concord & 9th. They always have some clever goods over there! 🙂 Many Thanks Turnabout Stamp! Hooray!
you can tell by the pumpkin in the pic, I made this back in the Fall, so it has more of an autumn feel.
lso used Concord & 9th’s Many Thanks dies to create the focal point speech bubble. I have always been a HUGE fan of speech bubbles, and this one is large and FUN! 🙂
Ok, that is all from me today! I had a busy day of laundry, baking and family fun! More to do on all that tomorrow too!! 🙂
Have a Happy Christmas All! Jill 🙂
Happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing a card that I fought to finish! LOL! I kept having mishaps/mistakes, but in the end, I prevailed and finished it! (I won’t tell you how long that took!)
I was all done with the Copic coloring and dropped water on the camper while making the background with Distress Inks. Hence, making the decision where the sentiment would go! Haaaaa! Usually I’m super careful, but….. well, you should see my desk this week. Yikes. *rolls eyes*
I’ll spare you all the other flubs, but man, sometimes projects test you, don’t they? And the debate about using the grill or not using the grill went on for several minutes. In the end, I decided these campers were hungry. 😉
For this card, I used the fabulously fun Avery Elle set Glamper Campers! Oh my word, this set! ❤ (That flamingo alone! I want to make a card with just that little fella!) I have been pining for it, and finally used a friend’s set back in April. I stamped and die cut a bunch of images then. Now I am ready to make more. Saves a lot of time later! Except when you keep making a mess! LOL. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Trails!
Happy Summer! Just popping in with a couple quicker cards I made last week. It was a crazy week, but I did sneak these in and felt better! 🙂
I used my Zig Clean Color pens to watercolor these in. (Then I photographed them with Copic markers, and I think that is just funny! Shows how time crunched things got.) I finished them with some stitching and some Wink of Stella sparkle.
I can’t wait to use more of these stamps soon! SO fun! 🙂 I used Avery Elle’s The Scoop. I think this set is delightful, and would also pair awesome with their newer ice cream treat stamp set. I don’t own that one yet, but the treats smile, so I really must some day 😉 .
Yum! Happy Summer!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Friday!
I am popping in today, to share a card I made for Ellen Hutson’s Mix It Up Challenge! I am so glad I snuck this in! I enjoy combining products I like so much!
For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside and Avery Elle’s Hello Stamp. I’d venture to guess, this AE set is long retired (?), but it is a fave of mine still! 🙂
I stamped and used my Zig pens to watercolor in an ombré sunshiney look! It’s not quite as smooth as I’d have liked, but I decided if I messed with it anymore, I’d have watercolor outside the lines! 🙂
I scored the panel, and stitched it on a card base with a paper clip. That was about it! Lots of simple sunshine to mail!
I’m entering this in the Ellen Hutson January Mix It Up Challenge: Avery Elle. It’s about over, but if you run, you can sneak one in too! 😉
Thanks for stopping by!
When I saw this Love Puffin from Avery Elle, i just knew I wanted to stamp them! 🙂 So stinkin’ cute! I am going to share three different cards I made over the course of *two many* days… 🙂 Watercolor drying is painful sometimes.
I think this one above might be my favorite? I puffy heart you. I just ❤ that! 🙂This one above, I did not get a stellar photo. It had to get to its destination STAT! And this one was kind of a happy accident, even though I’m not 100% sure I like it yet… 🙂
Please excuse my inked and crazy hands in the pics! Overcast days are sometimes awesome for photos and sometimes not. Yesterday, was a not.
Thanks for dropping in!
