Happy day to you all! I wanted to pop in quick and share that I’m over on the Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog today–Check it all out HERE!
Here’s some sneaks to entice you 🙂
You might gather a Mom theme! Be sure to check out my post over there for the full card photos. 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day to those celebrating and extra hugs to those who need them this weekend. ❤

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 Mother’s Day! Just popping in quick to share a card I made for my Mom! I used Technique Tuesday Mom’s Day stamp set. It’s a good one for so much more than Mother’s Day too! 🙂
I used my real watercolors to color the whole thing. Quite pretty in person. 😉I’m off to enjoy a few minutes before someone says, “Mom!! I’m hungry”. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by–hope your weekend was a great one! 🙂
A fun month ahead, as I have the pleasure to Guest over at the Color Throwdown this month!
I love seeing my IG feed on Wednesdays because of the consistency of color cards these ladies post for this challenge! (That yellow and blue last week… <3!)
Here are this week’s colors for #391:
Oooo that ^ says nothing but SPRING! 🙂
Here’s my take:
Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I’m suddenly hoping no Mother in my family reads my blog, because: Spoiler Alert! 😉
These flower circles are made with the newly released Beautiful Bouquet from Technique Tuesday. This stamp would be perfecto for wedding cards! I mean, perfecto! Quick and easy, or get in there, and get your detail on! 🙂
I stamped the bouquet and die cut it into circles. Then I chose to do a quick watercolor with the CTD colors. The hardest part is arranging the circles, right!? 🙂
I also used these two Technique Tuesday sets for the sentiment: Be Happy (<–awesomesauce) and Mom’s Day.
Be sure to hop over and see what their whole team made! Sure to be happiness with these colors! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! I’m so happy to be “hanging” with some of my creatively talented friends from the ol’ The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge too. Thanks Lisa, and all the ladies, for your inspiration every week! 🙂
I’ll see you back here next Wednesday for more FUN color inspiration!
Preparing for Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation all this week! Let’s see how many posts I can squeeze in too! 🙂 Here is one of my fun Technique Tuesday cards for my lovely Grannie. She is not online, so I’m in the clear to share! 🙂
The ‘crazy good looking’ part is so spot on. If only I inherit her genes, in that respect! 🙂
I’m mailing this today, so I know it’ll be there in plenty of time! 😉 I only wish I could hug her in person too. ❤
I watercolored with Distress Inks, and used the following stamp sets from Technique Tuesday: Mom’s Day, Man Day, and Beary Sweet. It’s fun to mix the Mom set with the Man set! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
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!! 🙂
