Holiday Fun with Right at Home!

Good Day to you! Hope your weekend has been a great one so far! Today, I am sharing a handful of cards I made with the recently released Bells and Baubles and Fa La La from Right at Home! Gah!! I not only love the fun choices one has to build these ornaments and baubles, but I completely adore this font!  You can check out Right At Home’s most recent release HERE! There are some cutie sets there to color too! ❤
I just stamped and stamped and stamped my little heart out, using all the Catherine Pooler inks that Right at Home carries. You can find them all HERE.
My first card is full of Cheer!
I love this festive feel– It is fun for the holidays but non-traditional. Fiesta! 🙂
Here are the inks I used:
Next up, I used more details of the baubles for this one:
Again, not traditional colors, but I thought it was a fun combo and I liked the result. I also thought it would be fun to use a dark blue, Juniper Mist on all these vs. a black.
Here are the inks I used for this one:
Lastly, I made a card using just bits and pieces of this builder stamp set. I like to stretch sets outside what they might typically be used for, and these stamps could easily be used for a birthday, hello, or whatever kind of card. Think of the color combo possibilities! 😉
I just polished this off with a few little splatters for fun. 🙂

Here are the inks I used for this one:

There is also a coordinating die set for this Bells and Baubles set. You can find that one HERE. I was going to use the dies for these stamped images (below) I had in progress, but I forgot to wait to stamp the tops of the ornaments. They have their own die cuts. Hopefully I can finish these panels and make them into cards for the holiday season too!

I hope you have been busy creating lots of holiday fun too! I’m looking forward to having some more time later this month to create more with this awesome never-ending-possibilities-set!

Thank you to Nicole for having me along to create! Always a treat! ❤

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

The Best Ever!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve have had this little Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple and die for so long and finally got around to stamping them! 🙂

Adorable! I colored them with Copics, die cut them out and then stamped the sentiment from the Reveal Wheel Sentiments after scoring the card base under the circle. To finish this off, I added some stitching, some Stickles and a little hemp twine. 🙂

Gah, I can’t take them with the googley eyes! 🙂

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is all about bling and sparkle–check it out HERE. Check it out:

Be sure to check out the challenge and join in! I haven’t played along in so long and I’m glad I finally could! 🙂

Have a great rest of the week!

Take care– Jill 🙂

Batty Tags!

Hola! Just popping in with a handful of treat tags I whipped up for teachers and staff. (And one little dude’s lunchbox 😉 ) ❤

For these, I used Taylored Expressions Gone BattyPaper Smooches Tag Stitched Dies, Paper Smooches Teeny Stars, and Lawn Fawn’s Reveal Wheel Sentiments. Fun!

❤ !

Eeeeeeep! Love that little bat.

I backed this patterned paper with cardstock for heft. Otherwise, just colored all with Copic Markers, added a few splats, googley eyes (of course), a few felt stars and done! Ready to give.

Halloween treats before everyone is inundated with sugar. Ha!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill 🙂

laughs…

hello! I have a pile of cards I have yet to share that I made over the summer. So today, I’m popping in to share this group of funny cards and a lil’ bit of fall….

These stamps are super funny to me, especially this first one. Everything is better in a cape! Cracking up!! 🙂 Full disclosure: The reason this chick is colored so awesomely and skillfully, is because my friend Jen colored it and let me have it. 🙂 Or did I just take it? ha–Just kidding! 😉 I did color her cape and make the rest of the card though. Ha!

So fun! This is Taylored Expressions Sarcasti-Chick and her Halloween Closet. Just. So. Funny. ❤

Next up, I have this very ON POINT hair humor card. Hilarious. These are also stamps by Taylored Expressions–from the Clearly Planned called Super Sweet. I colored all of this one. 🙂

Because it has been soooooo humid here! 🙂

And then, we get to the sweet Thank You cards for Fall. I made a handful of these, but forgot to take a group picture, so here’s just one. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill 🙂

Ellen Hutson’s New August Release!

Today, there is a fun NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson!The Leading Ladies are back and busier than ever! I always enjoy all the little stamps Brandi Kincaid includes in her sets, so I ran with those! 🙂

You can check out the entire release: Essentials By Ellen August 2018 Complete Release!

I first peeled off these cute little supplies from the newly released: Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Leading Ladies – Teacher Lady By Brandi Kincaid. There are coordinating dies HERE. I stamped them all in black. (This seems to be my current *thing*. Haaa!) After that, I cut some strips to stitch on and added the Alphas from the previously released: Classic Block Alpha. ❤ these alphas!

I thought this would be fun for a teacher or a student! Or even for administration! 🙂

And then, I focused on the light bulb! I colored these very loosely with Copics for a different look.

I really enjoy all the fonts on these new sets! The handwriting mixed with straight text: ❤ !

This next card, I almost just tossed out. The next morning, I decided it was not as bad as I had thought the night before. Do you do this? It’s so silly! 🙂

For this card, I used both new Leading Lady sets, getting the clipboard from the new: Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Leading Ladies – Medical Lady By Brandi Kincaid. The coordinating dies I used are HERE. I also used the previously released: Abstract Paint Strokes.

When I finished this next card, it didn’t feel so cheerful. But I decided that it would actually be a pretty good man card to send. So I kept this one too. 🙂 This one uses more of the Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Leading Ladies – Medical Lady By Brandi Kincaid set.

Loving that “feel better” sentiment–great size, great writing! 🙂 I also used a tag from the previously released: Concertina Tag.

I kept these cards pretty simple and enjoy how they turned out in the end. These new Leading Ladies are fun and quite a delight to have added to my collection! The actual ladies are sure to meet on a card here really soon! 😉 There’s a whole party going to happen!

Hope the rest of your weekend is great! Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you to Ellen Hutson for including me in their new release fun today!

Be sure to check out all the fun new products released today over at Ellen Hutson HERE! Have a great Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill 🙂

See you Later, Alligator!

Hope you had a great weekend! Ours was great here, but of course, too fast as always. 😉

I thought I’d pop in and share these cute little Neat & Tangled critters I colored with Copic Markers. The best part is, they made it onto CARDS already!! 🙂

This card is made with Neat & Tangled’s new Later Alligator and coordinating Dies. I also used N&T’s previously released Polygon Stencil with some Distress Oxide inks. 🙂 I cannot handle the cuteness of that tiny little frog! My son is going to love getting this one! 🙂

Next up, I used the cute little fox, So Foxy! Coordinating dies HERE.

I colored him gray with Copics and added him on top of some Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Paper Pad paper. Gah, cutest little fox! ❤

I also used Neenah white cardstock, as always, for both! 🙂

If you haven’t seen it, Neat & Tangled is hosting another Throwdown: Crafting with Compassion.

There could not be a better idea in my mind, so I wanted to join in on it. I also thought it completely worthy to purchase this Celebrate You stamp set, as all the proceeds are “being donated to the Burning Limb Foundation to help patients at the Neurologic Relief Center receive care for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).” You can find all the info HERE.

A charity that matters to me is the American Cancer Society. Not only is it a cause close to my family’s heart, but is is a cause that my friend and her family help to raise money for every year. My friend and her family have run the Chicago Marathon seven years over, to raise money for the ACS in memory of her brother. This year, my friend is running the New York City Marathon for the American Cancer Society DetermiNATION Team. In the past, I have sold my cards to help raise just a little more money for her. 🙂 She is a rockstar in my book! ❤

Help spread the word for a worthy cause close to you! Join in HERE. ❤

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead! 🙂

Take care- Jill 🙂

Ellen Hutson’s New July Release!

Today, there is a super fun NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson! This release is by Julie Ebersole and you know I am a fan of what Julie whips up! This release is no exception! 🙂

There is so much fun on the mermaid front, but this time I flocked to the Rainbow and Unicorns set!  Because: Rainbows.  🙂 #trouble

Go Forth and Be Fabulous! ❤

This little unicorn and all the rainbow fun! eeeeek!

For this card, I created a Distress Oxide Ink background with masking and blending.

Fantasmagorical?! ❤

I colored all the little images with Copic Markers and then added them to the cards in little scenes.

This sentiment had me at Sprinkles! I love everything sprinkles!  LOL! 🙂

This sentiment is a RIOT! Sure to make someone laugh, I’m sure! I did!

Too funny!

And then this last card, I kept it very simple, but it probably took the longest to make! It was late at night and I was trying to line everything up with tired eyes. Silly! 🙂

Rainbow delight! With Sparkly glitter to boot!! 🙂

I used three new Essentials by Ellen products for these cards:

Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Pure Magic By Julie Ebersole

Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Unicorns ‘N Rainbows By Julie Ebersole

Essentials By Ellen Designer Dies, Unicorns ‘N Rainbows By Julie Ebersole

I also used the previously released and versatile: ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN CLEAR STAMPS, PATTERN PLAY BY BRANDI KINCAID.

For several of the cards,  I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear confetti bits. Love those little sparkly bits!

Be sure to check out all the fun new products released today over at Ellen Hutson HERE! Have a great Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill 🙂
