May Guest over at Neat & Tangled!

Hello Crafty Friends! Fun news to share to today, as I am the May Guest Designer over at Neat & Tangled! I could not be MORE excited to be joining their amazing designers this month! Huge thanks to Danielle! And to my friend Miriam, who incidentally costs me a lot of moola. 😉 ❤

My first card this month features Elena Roussakis’s cutie little set, Jump for Joy!  When I saw this squirrel, I swear my heart leaped with delight! (My friend Lisa will vouch for my complete love of this set! ❤ ) He is just the stinkin’ cutest! I absolutely had to use him straightaway this month.

Be sure to hop over to Neat & Tangled today to see my full post about how I made this card. You can find that post HERE.

Thank you again, Neat & Tangled–looking forward to sharing more this month! 🙂

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!

Take care- Jill 🙂

February Release from Technique Tuesday!

Good morning, I’m back today to share more from Technique Tuesday’s new  February release The new release to be to be available HERE! If you missed my post yesterday, you can check that one out HERE.

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday set, Sally and Sherman the Skunks and their coordinating dies HERE. They are pretty stinkin’ cute! 🙂

For the little green mounds he is walking on there, I used the new Oval and Rectangle Stitched Labels. I thought this was a fun way to stretch the stamps a little further. I just used a bunch of different colored green inks to stamp them with.

All the little bits are too cute!  So stinkin’ cute. wink wink. 🙂

Be sure to head over the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE and below you can hop to see everyone’s February projects. They also each shared one yesterday, so be sure to scroll. Here is the link to my post yesterday. 🙂

Technique Tuesday February Release!

Technique Tuesday has a new release for February–yay!! Technique Tuesday’s new release to be to be available HERE!

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday set, Kind Cosmo and the new Oval and Rectangle Stitched Labels. I think this new flower is lovely and sweet!

For this card, I stamped the labels and then masked them off before stamping the flowers on the inside. I like the fine line work on the flowers, and I always like stamping them with ink without coloring them in.

I think this turned out fun and it’ll be a great card to send to a friend! 🙂

Hello, Hello!

Hello-Happy Thursday! Just popping in with a quick card I made to get my crafty mind working. 🙂

I felt like using a pink and a minty/pool blue/green. I apparently had mint chocolate chip on my mind. 🙂 So I stamped those colors and then overlaid with grays for the gradient. It wasn’t my very best stamping, but I ran with it. 🙂 I think I’ll try to find a brighter color for each next time.

I stamped everything, scored the panel and added the stitching to finish it all off! Kept it simple. I never know if I should add more? But I think if I debate it too long, the answer is always no. Ha! 🙂

This stamp set is from the Stamp Market and it is called Hello Hello. 🙂 (I think it must be retired because I cannot find a link to share.)

Have a great day today! I’ll be back here tomorrow with a new card. TGIF!

Jill 🙂
