Clucking!

I’m interrupting your Super Bowl experience this evening to bring some crafty fun πŸ™‚ !

It’s February! And that means there are new stamps aboard from Technique Tuesday! I love a good play on words, and naturally, this month does NOT disappoint! πŸ™‚

For these cards, I used Technique Tuesday’s newly released, Chicken Family Stamp set (and Chicken Family dies)Β  the previously released, Funny Farm stamp set and coordinating dies.

Oh my word! This is the perfect card to send from our house! LOL! πŸ™‚

I colored this scene with Copic Markers. I mean, chickens are blue, right? πŸ˜‰


This next card uses the SUPER FUN new set, Cheeky Chicken. These sentiments are so stinkin’ funny to me! πŸ™‚ They also have coordinating dies HERE. Just crack me UP!

I actually gave this to my hubby for his birthday. Because he really wants chickens. Bwaahahha!

For this card above, I used my Zig Clean Color Markers for a little loosey “goosey” watercolor action.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Technique Tuesday release HERE!

Hope your week starts out with a win!! πŸ™‚

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

Hi There!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! It is snowing here, and this is the perfect card for today!

I colored these cuties for #thedailymarker30day today, and actually put them on a card right away. Hooray! I actually colored them in the wee hours of the morning because I couldn’t sleep. I believe that was due to possibly dozing off (albeit VERY briefly) earlier in the day?Β  LOL! I blame my son. πŸ™‚ He wears me out! ❀

These cuties are from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Cool and Chit Chat. I have the dies for the Snow Cool set, but the Chit Chat, I just fussy cut. I think Chit Chat was one of my first LF sets? πŸ™‚ Oh and the heart is from Lawn Fawn’s Hearts die.

I used Lawn Fawn Jet Black (Copic friendly) Ink,Β  Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, Copic Markers, and Worn Lipstick Oxide ink.

This is also perfect for joining the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Inspiration Board. It’s so wintery and love filled, I thought this would be spot on. πŸ™‚

Have a great Sunday! Thanks for popping by!

Take care! Jill πŸ™‚

Forever Favorite

Hi All! I wanted to share a card I finished late last night using my Daily Marker 30 Day project. I always love Kathy’s challenge and I’m really trying to use all the things I color this time–sooner than later!

I love this little My Favorite Nut set from Neat & Tangled (and dies). I also used N & T’s stencil, Polygon.Β  I also need to point out that this is the third card I’ve made this month using purple! Likely more purple than I used in all of 2017. Haaaaaa! Putting out that olive branch, I tell ya! πŸ™‚ I used Distress Oxide Inks for the mix: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Wilted Violet.

Oh and the “forever” is from THIS Neat & Tangled set.

I colored these cuties with Copic Markers. I added some N&T sequin confetti to this card too. You can find similar ones HERE. πŸ™‚

Take care! Jill πŸ™‚

Cactus Love!

I’m popping in to share a few cards I made with Technique Tuesday’s newly released, A Little Prickly Stamp set and dies. Eeeep! Cacti are so fun to make cards with, especially when then gain eyes! Haaaa! πŸ™‚

I colored these fun cacti with Copic Markers and added some googley eyes, of course. πŸ™‚

This one below is going to a crafty friend!Β  How cute is that little cactus!? ❀ “She” might be my fave of the bunch..shhhhh. πŸ™‚

I also used the Memo Pad die to put this cutie on some patterned paper. Once I started putting googley eyes on them, I couldn’t stop.

For the card below, I used Technique Tuesday’s Clipboard die and brushed on some Oxide Ink,. I also added some silver sparkly stars that I die cut from the Shooting Star Crafting die.

These were definitely fun to make. I need to color up some more Cacti! They make cute cards quick, especially if you color them in advance! Love that!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Technique Tuesday release HERE! Especially the Love Stinks. πŸ˜‰ It’s super fun and has an awesome price point!

Hope your week starts out fabulously!! πŸ™‚

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

One in a Chameleon

Hooray for the weekend! πŸ™‚

Last night I had just enough time to get a quick card made. Monday is back to school here,Β  and it is going to get ugly round these parts! My son is going to be in extreme denial!Β  πŸ™‚ So I made him a card for his lunchbox, to soften the blow midday. It’s not going to work, but it can’t hurt. Haaaa!

My son has a chameleon and he loves apples, so I went with that! πŸ™‚

This little chameleon was a Lawn Fawn goodie offered around Thanksgiving. I obviously needed to grab one! πŸ™‚ I did not get the die however, so I just fussy cut him out. πŸ™‚

The background I used is from the fabulous Ellen Hutson set, Wonky Backdrops. Love that set.

Other supplies: Lawn Fawn Thanks a Bushel stamp and die, Lawn Fawn Jet Black (Copic friendly) Ink, Versafine Black,Β  Hero Arts Ombre ink pad, Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, Copic Markers, and a White Gel Pen.

I thought I’d enter this for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Fun with Food! I love to partake in challenges, as I think it’s great creative exercise! πŸ™‚ There is still over a week to join in the fun, so check it out! Lots of yummy cute to check out there! πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend and STAY WARM!

Take care! Jill πŸ™‚

Love Stinks…

Happy 2018!! I hope you are ready to rock a fun year ahead! πŸ™‚

I’m popping in tonight to share a few cards I made with Technique Tuesday’s newly released, Love Stinks set. OK. I might enjoy this set a little too much, but come on, how stinkin’ fun is this!? πŸ™‚

Eeeeep! I cannot tell you how much this cracks me up! πŸ™‚

And then of course, I had to make two…for good measure and for practicing to color that cute little smiling pile! πŸ™‚

I also used some patterned paper!! Hey hey! Off to a good start here in 2018 using some stash! I’m hoping to widdle my PP even further so I can invest in some new pads by 2019? Hmmm. πŸ™‚

Along with those fun stamps, is this TP roll. I was cracking up when I saw it! πŸ™‚ That’s How I Roll. I die. πŸ™‚ ❀ it!

Some sparkle on these adds a little more interest in person. πŸ™‚

I kept all these cards very simple, using some Copic Markers, Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, Confetti sequins, Nuvo dots and twine, before adding some finishing stitching with my sewing machine. I’m thinking my husband will get a laugh and I love sending some smiles in the mail! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your New Year is a FABULOUS one! πŸ™‚

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚
