Clucking!

I’m interrupting your Super Bowl experience this evening to bring some crafty fun ๐Ÿ™‚ !

It’s February! And that means there are new stamps aboard from Technique Tuesday! I love a good play on words, and naturally, this month does NOT disappoint! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Oh my word! This is the perfect card to send from our house! LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

I colored this scene with Copic Markers. I mean, chickens are blue, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰


This next card uses the SUPER FUN new set, Cheeky Chicken. These sentiments are so stinkin’ funny to me! ๐Ÿ™‚ They also have coordinating dies HERE. Just crack me UP!

I actually gave this to my hubby for his birthday. Because he really wants chickens. Bwaahahha!

For this card above, I used my Zig Clean Color Markers for a little loosey “goosey” watercolor action.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Technique Tuesday release HERE!

Hope your week starts out with a win!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Cactus Love!

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

I colored these fun cacti with Copic Markers and added some googley eyes, of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

This one below is going to a crafty friend!ย  How cute is that little cactus!? โค “She” might be my fave of the bunch..shhhhh. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s super fun and has an awesome price point!

Hope your week starts out fabulously!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Love Stinks…

Happy 2018!! I hope you are ready to rock a fun year ahead! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m popping in tonight to share a few cards I made with Technique Tuesday’s newly released, Love Stinks set. OK. I might enjoy this set a little too much, but come on, how stinkin’ fun is this!? ๐Ÿ™‚

Eeeeep! I cannot tell you how much this cracks me up! ๐Ÿ™‚

And then of course, I had to make two…for good measure and for practicing to color that cute little smiling pile! ๐Ÿ™‚

I also used some patterned paper!! Hey hey! Off to a good start here in 2018 using some stash! I’m hoping to widdle my PP even further so I can invest in some new pads by 2019? Hmmm. ๐Ÿ™‚

Along with those fun stamps, is this TP roll. I was cracking up when I saw it! ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s How I Roll. I die. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค it!

Some sparkle on these adds a little more interest in person. ๐Ÿ™‚

I kept all these cards very simple, using some Copic Markers, Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, Confetti sequins, Nuvo dots and twine, before adding some finishing stitching with my sewing machine. I’m thinking my husband will get a laugh and I love sending some smiles in the mail! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your New Year is a FABULOUS one! ๐Ÿ™‚

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Technique Tuesday FUN!

Welcome to a new week! Monday should definitely be optional–who’s with me?!

This new sentiment is from the latest Technique Tuesday Sassy set called Sassy Days! These are definitely some of my favorite sets! I laugh every time I get them and itch to use every single one. Teri is so good! ๐Ÿ™‚

I paired it with the previously released Greenhouse Society set Sweet Succulents. Love the little hen and chick stamps!

Next up, is this AWESOME new die, By the Numbers! This truly makes the quickest work of a birthday card! For this card, I just used a bunch of scrap blocks and glued it to a piece of copy paper. Then Iย  die cut it and voila! Super easy, super quick, and super impact! I need to do a bunch of these so I’m actually ready for birthdays vs. scrambling! ๐Ÿ˜‰

(The sentiment is from the Smirthday Set. โค !)

Then, there are the turtles!!! Love me a cute little turtle! ๐Ÿ™‚ This new TT set is called: Turtle Trio! It’s the latest release in the Animal House line.ย  There are coordinating dies HERE. I used the Turtles and the By the Numbers for a cute belated birthday card. That little turtle is my FAVE! ๐Ÿ™‚

I colored the turtles with Copic Markers and heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock.

Eeeeeep! So cute!

I have a “few” turtles on my desk still, but I used another to create this card in the conjunction with the new Current Events stamp set and the new On the Calendar dies. Love how the upside down turtle was perfecto for this sentiment.

I just added some embossed lines to the panel with my scoring board. Quick and easy! Love doing that often. ๐Ÿ™‚

And of course, I just had to do a quick tag to use another Sassy Days stamp. I figured I could add this to a card soon and pop it in the mail to a friend. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, there you have it! Lots of new fun things fromย Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

I wasn’t sure if I’d get around to another blog post this month, so I figured I’d share them all at once! ๐Ÿ™‚ December is flying CRAZY fast, isn’t it?

Thanks for stopping by and happy holiday crafting!!

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Today I am sharing cards made for my sweet friend Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags!! How fun is that? I used all these great holiday stamps from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

These first two are more “traditional” holiday colors.

For all of these, I cut/used small cardstock strips glued down to a piece of regular ol’ paper. Then I die cut the tags out from each before stamping and heat embossing the sentiments.

^^That is one of my favorite sentiments! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL!

These last two are a fun take on Christmas colors. ๐Ÿ™‚

For all my tags, I used various sentiments from Technique Tuesday: Spirit of December, Dear Santa, Christ is Born, and Classic Christmas Sentiments. The Classic Christmas Sentiments set is such a staple set! And of course, the Dear Santa set is my laughable fun fave! ๐Ÿ™‚ (The tiny stars and snowflakes are all from the fun TT planner sets HERE.)

Holiday Cards

Welcome to the weekend! Hope you are looking forward to some fun these couple of days! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m popping in to share a few more cards using new stamps from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

This lovely festive new set is: Barberry Stamp Set. I also used sentiments from: Spirit of December and Dear Santa. The Dear Santa set is definitely a well-loved one. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

I stamped and colored the berries with Copic markers on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. For the card base, I used some sparkly washi my sweet friend gave me. It’s from X-Press It: Deco Tape Copper Glitter ! Helllllllllo sparkly goodness! Also, while I was there, I saw lots of other tapes that I’m going *need*! Cork!? And…Shiny Skinny Tape HERE!ย  Good gracious! Ok, back to the card! ๐Ÿ™‚ Got a little sidetracked by the sparkly there for a minute! haaa! (Enabling friends are trouble, aren’t they?ย  โค โคย  )ย 

I added a few different touches to each of them, but I am glad I made three at once. I keep saying I need to do this WAY more! ๐Ÿ™‚

To finish them off, I added a few black dots, my favorite Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and some stitching. Simple and festive! ๐Ÿ™‚

New from Technique Tuesday!

Happy November! I am not recovered from Halloween yet, but Happy November! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hooray for lots of new stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday today! They can be found HERE!

Today, I’m sharing a card using the new Sassy Fashion Stamp set! Isn’t this fantastic!? I just cracked up when I saw this sentiment. Yes! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

I stamped and colored the dresses with Copic markers. For the card base, I used some silver washi tape and patterned paper. I added some stitching on,ย  and called it a day. I couldn’t decide if I should add a few sequins, but I thought the silver sparkle was enough. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! Lots of fun!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you don’t suffer from a Halloween candy tummy ache today! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haaaaa!

Take care- Jill ๐Ÿ™‚
