Animal House*

(*not the movie) Ha ha!!

Today, I am sharing a handful of cards I made with Technique Tuesday’s Animal House sets! They are fun and always PUNtastic. Check them all out HERE.

**Be sure to check out the Technique Tuesday Blog today HERE–there is a GIVEAWAY!! 🙂 **

One of my favorite faves Turtle Trio! There are coordinating dies HERE. The background is By the Numbers. That little turtle is my FAVE! 🙂

I also used Current Events stamp set and the new On the Calendar dies.

One of my other  favorite Animal House sets is this set: Floyd and Frannie Flamingo stamp set and coordinating dies.

(I die cut it out with the Postage Card die.)

So. FUN.

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

The next card uses Parker & Penny Pig Clear Stamps. Coordinating dies available for them HERE.

(This card also uses the set Planner Beauty.)

Another cutie patootie, Bailey the Bunny stamp set.

Next up, Lorenzo the Llama set and coordinating dies HERE.

This next card uses the SUPER FUN Cheeky Chicken. They also have coordinating dies HERE.

These little fun guys are part of the new set, Small Fries. And there are dies HERE!

I also used the Planner Celebrate Stamp Set AND  THIS fishbowl die called, Fish Bowl.

Some Monday-ness…

Happy Monday! I thought a few of these TT cards I made were fitting for today, being Monday and all. 🙂 The full July release from Technique Tuesday can be found HERE!

How about this one? LOL. It’s hot out and I’m in road trip recovery, so this sounds good to me! 🙂

I used Technique Tuesday’s new Sweet Succulents set ( ❤ ) and Sassy Lazy Thoughts. This new Sassy set is a freaking riot!! 🙂 For this card, I watercolored with my Zig Clean Color markers on Bristol paper.

Next up, Lorenzo the Llama set and coordinating dies HERE. I type his name and I giggle still!

Spit happens! Perfect! LOL! I colored Lorenzo with Copic Markers and die cut the Memo Pad Die from patterned paper.

And last, but not least for today,  we have this little number:

 

 

 

Bwwwahhhahhaaa! I used the Sassy Lazy Thoughts set again, along with the Planner stamp set called Planner Yum! Again, this was watercolored with Zig markers and stitched up to finish it off! 🙂

Be sure to check out  Technique Tuesday HERE!  🙂

Happy Monday–I hope you all power through!

Technique Tuesday: July!

The start of July means new stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday ! They can be found HERE! There is always something for everyone in TT’s releases. 🙂

First up, we have the new owl for the month: Hi There Owl. I might have a new favorite? This one cracks me up because it reminds of trying to take selfies with friends. Key word: Trying! LOL! This owl is the new edition to all the little owl sets that can be found HERE.

How cute is this owl!? Gah! I used the Pocket of Love die for the frame.

Next up, the new Lorenzo the Llama set and coordinating dies HERE. That name makes me laugh every time I read it! Bwaaahahhaa! “No Prob-Llama”! I die. 🙂Lorenzo’s set has the punniest llama sentiments that I ❤ !! “Llama Tell You How Much I Like You”. Big hit in my book. I colored this guy with Copic Markers and die cut him out. I added some patterned paper and stitched it on. Boom! Complete! Love that kind of card! I always feel like I’ve really done something when I use some of my PP. 😉

Last card, but not least for today, is this summerific card using the new At the Beach stamp set. This is one of those cards I did not like when I made it. The next day, I did! LOL! I think it’s beachy keen!

For this card, I masked off an area on a watercolor paper panel. I then stamped and white embossed all the images. I watercolored over them with my Kuretake Gansai watercolors. I even used some of the blue pearl one, which in person, looks fun and sparkly! I always forget how opaque these paints are. Which is why I didn’t like the results at first. But after I got over my “intended look”, I liked it! Phew! 🙂

(How awkward is the angle I took the below photo at? LOL! I only realize it now, and cannot redo because I already mailed it! 😉 )

One more quick share is this new set, It’s a Masterpiece. It’s such a funny little set that I think all project makers would enjoy stamping on the back of cards, or anything you make. Cracks. Me. Up.

HOURS to make. YES! HOURS!! Haaaaa!

Be sure to check out ALL the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!  🙂

Happy Holiday weekend to those celebrating!

Enjoy- Jill 🙂
