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. 🙂

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!

A Cute Card and SUPER FUN News!

It’s a new week and a New Year and I think I finally got some things crossed off my list today? It’s been nutty around here, to say the least! 🙂

I’m sharing a card I made today with the cuties from Neat & Tangled’s Lumberjack Love set. 🙂 I colored them for the last Daily Marker 30 challenge and last night they stumbled back onto my desk–I figured it was a sign I should make this card. ❤

I colored them with Copics and die cut them out, adding them to a simple card base that I scored and stitched. My fave! ❤ Plus, I mean, pun. Enough said. 😉

I’m thinking I will save this one for my husband on Valentine’s Day…shhhhhhh 🙂

Saving the most exciting part for last! I’m sharing the exciting news that I am joining the Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine’s 2019 Creative Team!!!

Today is the day for all the new Technique Tuesday November products to be available HERE!

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday set, Beau and Beatrice Beaver Stamp Set and coordinating dies, Beau and Beatrice Beaver Crafting DiesI thought that little snail needed some love, and when I saw that sentiment, I figured this was the perfect plan. 🙂

I colored all the elements with Copic Markers and then added them to some patterned paper. I scored the panel and stamped the sentiment. I thought this card fold was kind of fun! My friend sent me a card last week that was folded this way, and I thought I’d try it. 🙂

I polished it all off with some stitching, sequins and twine. ❤

November Release Countdown, Day 2 from Technique Tuesday!

Welcome to Day TWO of Technique Tuesday’s November Release Countdown! Today I get to share this VERY cool die!

I am sharing a card I made withe the soon to be released Sweater Weather Crafting Die. I am looking forward to using this die on all the things this winter! 🙂 This great sentiment is from the new Hello Winter Stamp Set. (*Links will work when the new products are released tomorrow, November 1st)

I die cut this die four times on this card panel and then popped out one row to make them red vs. white. I adhered everything down well, and then attached it all on an aqua note card. A favorite color combo for Winter. ❤  This card is so cozy!

The Best Ever!

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve have had this little Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple and die for so long and finally got around to stamping them! 🙂

Adorable! I colored them with Copics, die cut them out and then stamped the sentiment from the Reveal Wheel Sentiments after scoring the card base under the circle. To finish this off, I added some stitching, some Stickles and a little hemp twine. 🙂

Gah, I can’t take them with the googley eyes! 🙂

The current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge is all about bling and sparkle–check it out HERE. Check it out:

Be sure to check out the challenge and join in! I haven’t played along in so long and I’m glad I finally could! 🙂

Have a great rest of the week!

Take care– Jill 🙂
