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! 🙂
I colored these fun cacti with Copic Markers and added some googley eyes, of course. 🙂
This one below is going to a crafty friend! How cute is that little cactus!? ❤ “She” might be my fave of the bunch..shhhhh. 🙂
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. 😉 It’s super fun and has an awesome price point!
Hope your week starts out fabulously!! 🙂
Take care- Jill 🙂
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!
It’s May!! WHOAH! Did that sneak up or what? I’m sure I say this every month, but maybe it’s that every month goes faster and faster now? Ha!
Well, get ready or not, because there are lots new stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!
There is a fun new owl in town. This is the Happy Day Owl set. So cute and succinct. 🙂
I kept this one pretty simple, using the flower from the set as a pop of color! This guy is a happy new edition to all the little owl sets that can be found HERE.
Here is the new Flowers for Mom die (check it out HERE) . I think this flower is whimsy and fun!! I need to use it in a brighter fashion next! 🙂 This one i colored quickly with Copic markers and then went back in with a bunch of little pixels. I feel like I missed a spot! LOL 🙂
This sentiment, from the Mom’s Day set, is fantastic because to me it is two-fold. Both that my Grannie IS the Greatest Grandmother, and that she is also the Greatest Grandmother to my son. ❤ See how that works there! 😉
For this card, I also used my go-to fave, the Memo Pad Die. I use this one, A LOT!
Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! 🙂
Hope your May is full of fun! Thanks for stopping by!
Take care- Jill 🙂
Happy Easter! I hope those who celebrate had a wonderful Easter! Our weather was unreal here today, and I can’t remember a nicer Easter day, weather wise.
I thought I’d pop in to share some more fun from this month’s Technique Tuesday release! They can be found HERE!
I used purple and it all turned out OK! LOL! I am not a huge fan of purple, but I did try to it give it a few nods last month. Too funny!
This card uses the new fun set, Bunny Owl. (You cannot beat this price point for a cute lil’ set!)
I also used the new Kids Are Cool stamp set, which I ❤ ,and need more time in the day to use all the stamps there! 🙂 I think if you journal or scrapbook, this set would be extra perfecto for you!I also used the Memo Pad Card die. This die never fails me. 🙂 I used my Zig pens to watercolor this cutie, and added some googley eyes, of course.
And while we are here, enjoying some spring cards, I thought I’d share this silly one I made using the Bailey the Bunny stamp set. That tooshie is the best!
I was definitely doing some snickering while making this lil’ nutty one! 🙂
This sentiment is from Sassy Family. If you haven’t checked out the latest series of stamps in the “Sassy” line, I recommend them highly. I think they are super funny!! I love to send cards with laughs. 🙂 These bunnies were colored with Copic markers.
Here’s to everyone having a great week! I’m hoping to catch up on some stuff sometime this week? Yikes– I’m a bit behind on things–no pun intended! Haaaa!
Technique Tuesday has a new release of July goodness!! Check it out HERE!
I am a super fan* of THIS new Planner Stamp set designed by the fabulously talented Teri Anderson! *Disclaimer: I am a super fan of all Teri’s sets! Eeeeek! Always fun!
I paired the Kindness Planner set with the Fan-tastic set! Perfect for spreading kindness! I love THIS sentiment and the rest of the stamp set is just as cute and awesome! I’m hoping to finish a couple other cards with this set, soon! If you like planner sets, I highly recommend TT’s planner sets because they are fun, spunky, super cute, and priced fabulously! 🙂I also used the Technique Tuesday die set, Memo Pad. 🙂
I’m still making new cards to share from this Technique Tuesday release, so check back here again!

Popping in today with a card that makes me laugh! 🙂
Have you seen Technique Tuesday‘s planner stamps? I think they are so stinkin’ fun! I want to use them all! 🙂 Check them out HERE. Though I am currently planner-less, I am working them into my cards. This one cracks me up. Hard. 😉
The second I saw Brain Dump, I knew I had to work that in ASAP. ❤
I used the planner stamp set, Yes I Can! Such a fun set!! I also used Bird Friends along with the Memo Pad Card Die. Yes, I use this die set A LOT. 🙂
Technique Tuesday has a bunch of fun new April goodies to check out!
Hello all! Phew! I’ve been MIA! 🙂 It was weird to not create any cards for nearly a week?! We spent a lot of our Spring Break time visiting family. Loved it! Now, I’m getting back to it! Hooray!
Onward to the exciting news!! I have the super awesome pleasure of joining the Technique Tuesday Creative Team!! What fun for me to work with products I ❤ ! Plus, Teri Anderson. Enough said. 🙂 #terirocks
Annnnnd today is April release day for Technique Tuesday, so I thought I would share a project using one of the new little owl stamps: Proud Owl. There is a new owl each month! Love me some owls!! (The price point on these makes them irresistible! 🙂 )
I stamped the background with the Mom’s Day set. It says Favorite Son. Because I can say that. 😉
I loosely watercolored this guy with ink. I quite enjoy the way it turned out and I’m looking forward to trying this some more. I get all cookoo about trying to control watercolor, which if you ask me, is an oxymoron. I’m getting in the groove of just letting it rip! 🙂 So much better!
Be sure to head over to the Technique Tuesday and check out ALL the new release there!! I’ll have more cards coming soon!
Thanks for stopping by & HUGE thanks to Teri and Technique Tuesday for having me along for the ride!! 🙂
One more fun tidbit…my friend, Miriam Prantner, has a new Craftsy class going on now!! I wanted to share a link to her post HERE so you can check it out, and get a deal! Yay Miriam!! So awesome and sure to be a smashing success!! 🙂
I think I would like Happysauce on everything! 🙂 And it starts with another Technique Tuesday Thursday! Be sure to hop over to the TT blog for this week’s scoop!
First up, these cutie little Bird Friends! I just adore these little stamps and I thought I would just go ahead and stack up the cuteness! This was actually a panel I colored up for Day ONE of Kathy Racoosin’s most recent, The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge. I finished it off with some blending and boom: Happysauce 😉 Ack! 🙂 (Bird Friends and Sending Smiles. <3)
Next up, I did one of my all time favorite things…strips of paper and die cut inlay. I just think it creates such a fun POW with very simple supplies (and scraps! FTW!). 🙂
I know that I made it, but I still say Wow! 🙂 SO fun! (Clipboard Die & Memo Pad Card die)
Well, that wraps another fabulously fun Technique Tuesday Thursday for me. I enjoyed my weeks over at TT this past month or so, and I Thank Teri and everyone at TT for having me along! Such a pleasure to make fun stuff with their fun stuff! 🙂 You can check out the Technique Tuesday blog today.
