Let’s Celebrate!

Happy Day to you! We are officially in the hot zone of summer now!

I thought I’d share a few cards I made a couple weeks ago using products from The Greetery . One is similar to my last Greetery post and the others are new using party fun! And pssssst–there is a SALE over at The Greetery NOW through tomorrow, July 2nd! Be sure to check it out HERE.

These first two cards use the The Pinwheel Party Bundle from The Greetery . My original thinking was I was going to just try out the stencil and then go back and use colors I picked. But once I finished these “test runs” I thought, well, these aren’t tragic! I’ll use them! Next time, I’ll think through colors vs. just grabbing randomly to try the stencils. 🙂

I think these are festive!

Good for a birthday or just anytime to celebrate, right?

Party!

Lastly for this card, I used the Oopsie Daisy Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies, HERE and HERE. I also used the Just Mason Around Stamps HERE and Coordinating Dies HERE. The sentiment is from the Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You stamp set HERE.

The green and the peach might be my favorite! 🙂

You can check out my other Daisy cards in THIS post HERE.

I used Taylored Expressions Stripes Stencil set for the backgrounds. Love those!! 🙂

Take care–Jill 🙂

June Fun from Technique Tuesday!

I looked at the calendar today. June 3! What?! Already?! The good news is, that means new stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday ! They can be found HERE!

I thought I’d share a few cards with the new goodies! Here we go!

These little fun guys are part of the new set, Small Fries. And there are dies HERE! How cute is that name?! I thought I’d make it a party scene using the Planner Celebrate Stamp Set! Also a fun way to get more use of your planner stamps. I was SUPER excited to see THIS fishbowl die called, Fish Bowl. Ha! Perfect!

Gah, so fun! I used Distress Oxide inks for the water. It turned out better than I thought it would!

Next up, I’m sharing the new owl, Party Time Owl. He’s ready to PARTY! This guy the new edition to all the little owl sets that can be found HERE.

These little paper strips on my owl card, are actually trimmings from the cards I made below. Love how that worked out! I scored/embossed the rest of the card to add additional texture and carry the lines through. This Party card above also uses my go-to die, Photo Frame.

The cards below are made with the new Greenhouse Society Marigold set. There is also a matching die for this flower!

For this, I used the word dies Celebrate and Thank You. I masked off these different blocks and blended on some ink. I really enjoy how they turned out! I’d use this technique for making more of these cards, and giving card set gifts. The Marigold stamp was perfect for this! yay!

I used Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, and Spiced Marmalade. (I would be awesome if the ink was Dried Marigold, right? Ha!)

Lots of fun new products for everyone’s style. Be sure to check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!  🙂

Have a GREAT weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Take care- Jill 🙂

I also used the new stamp set Let’s Party! 🙂 I white heat embossed those stamps on the panel, and then blended on some Distress Inks. The word Celebrate is from the new Celebrate die set! I used my always-go-to paper strips and then die cut the word out. I think this card screams PARTY! 🙂
