Eeeeps! Cutie little birds! I created a quick and simple Distress Ink watercolor back drop and when that dried, I stamped the birds in Versafine Black. I added some wonky stitches under their feet and sewed the watercolor panel onto the card front. πŸ™‚

I love the simple typed font with the curly script words! Delightful! πŸ™‚

This little bird I stamped on three same size pieces of cardstock and pieced them together. I added  a couple black strips and some stitching and Voila! πŸ™‚ SMILE! I love these kind of cards and I love to mail them!

These little birdies have coordinating dies, and those can be found HERE. I don’t have them, but I think they would be fun to use to layer up these little birds in flocks! πŸ™‚

While I have you, I thought it would be fun to share a couple coffee cards I made with TT’s new October goodies!

I just love how simple this first card is and how it turned out! I wish I have made a few more at the time.  πŸ™‚ I just used Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment ink on black paper to stamp this awesome coffee cup from the NEW Perk Up Stamp set.  

This sentiment is from the Sassy Coffee set! Oh my word–these Sassy sets that Teri Anderson creates keep me cracking up time after time. I just think they are all a riot and can be found HERE.

This next card uses the same Sassy Coffee set, but over and over. Because I feel like that just needs repeating. πŸ™‚

I stamped the cute smiley coffee cup from the same set. You know I love any inanimate object that smiles. πŸ™‚ Haaaa!

I hope you are able to carve some time out today and create. I’m likely to do mine late tonight when our son goes to bed. But that’s normal. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend and be sure to check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!  πŸ™‚ Including this new Chickadees 2.0 WCMD set!

Take care- Jill πŸ™‚

STAMPtember: Technique Tuesday set!

Happy [Technique] Tuesday! Exciting news about a new Simon Says Stamp/Technique Tuesday STAMPtember Set in the house! You can check out the new set, Sassy You’re Not Normal (haaaa!) HERE! It is SUPER funny!

I thought I’d share some cards I made with this new set. I had the foresight to think ahead and make a few at once. There were originally 6, but I was having some trouble stamping that night, (LOL!!) so only three made it to the finish line! Haaaaa! πŸ™‚

For these cards, I also used the delightful Enjoyed Layered Flower Stamp set. Isn’t that Sunflower fun!?

These new sentiments on this SS/TT set are so freaking awesome and CRACK ME UP!! πŸ™‚

How funny about the dryer!? So true! I stamped the dryer repeatedly in orange and gray inks. πŸ™‚

And to finish off, I had to also use this sentiment, so I colored for Kathy’s Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge with it! πŸ™‚ Have you joined in The Daily Marker 30 Day? There’s still time! It’s quite fun and great practice! I have no idea how Kathy keeps up with all?!! Amazing! You can check out all my misgivings and successes HERE on Instagram!

Be sure to hop over and check out the new STAMPtember Goodies from Simon Says Stamp HERE and everything new from Technique Tuesday HERE!Β  πŸ™‚ Lots of fun stuff to add to your wish list! Though this Technique Tuesday/Simon Says Stamp set, Sassy You’re Not Normal set is a Limited Edition! So don’t delay! πŸ™‚

Have an awesome week!

Fall Tidings and more!

Fall Tidings? That’s a thing, right? Well, it is now. LOL! πŸ™‚

Today, I’m popping in with a few more cards from the September Release (and others!) of Technique Tuesday! All the new goodies can be found HERE!

My first card features this month’s cutie owl, Framed Owl! Awwwww! ❀ I also used the sentiment from Sassy Birthday! Perfectly funny! πŸ™‚

I colored this cutie with Copic Markers and cut him out using the Clipboard die.

Next up, is this perfectly seasonal sentiment paired up with these layered leaves from the Fall Favorites set. These leaves stamp in such a cool fashion and I love the look in the end! It’s pretty subtle is these photos, but in person, it is lovely. Imagine the possibilities of layers with these!

I also added in some sweet acorns from the Fall Accents dies. When I made this card, we were actually experiencing sweater weather and I loved it! Suddenly, we are back into the low 90’s. Phew!

Another sweet and simple card using the Fall Accent dies is this one below:

This card is pretty simple and straight forward, but it would be easy to create a bunch of these for that very reason. This sentiment is from the Echinacea Stamp set. (All the finches are currently eating our dried up Echinacea flowers in the yard. ❀ )

And last, but not least, is this tidy little holiday number:

This pinecone (Pinecone Builder) ROCKS and I need to use it more! It comes with a solid cone to create a background for your delicate die cut. I used both delicate cuts here however. I die cut the pinecone,Β  as well as dry embossed it, to create some texture on the background

If you eliminated the “letterpress” background, this card would be fairly simple to create by the dozen! Of course, I love this handwritten sentiment paired with the typeface of “wishes”. This is from the Spirit of December stamp set. This sentiment set is crazy versatile, because you can mix up the sentiments as needed… and you don’t have to cut them. (the horror! LOL!) πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!Β  Lots of trouble to be had! πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!!

Technique Tuesday Flamingo FUN!

Happy Weekend! I am excited to share these cards I made with the September Release from Technique Tuesday! They can be found HERE!

I keep laughing at the sentiments is this super fun stamp set: Floyd and Frannie Flamingo stamp set and coordinating dies. So. Much. Fun.

I painted this background with my Kuretake watercolors and the flamingos with Copic Markers. This sentiment still makes me laugh to read it! πŸ™‚For this second card, I created a background with lots of masked off flamingos. Again, I colored these flamingos with Copic Markers and die cut them out. I white heat embossed the sentiment and die cut it out with the Postage Card die.

This has to be my favorite sentiment of the bunch. SO cracks me up! πŸ™‚

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

Have an awesome weekend!

Smile for the Cameras!

Happy Thursday! Popping in quick to freshen things up here πŸ™‚

Today I’m sharing these cards I made with the cameratastic August Release fromΒ Technique Tuesday! They can be found HERE!

I love the Oh Snap stamp! fun fun!!

I mixed up a bunch of different sets for this spunky little number! Technique Tuesday’s: We Just Click,Β Planner Camera, Start With a Smile Stamp set, and Caught on Camera stamp set.

This next one might be my favorite of the lot. πŸ™‚ I stamped this panel and left it to dry on my desk. Forgot about it! Then a couple weeks later, I found it all ready to color! Love that! πŸ™‚

For this, I used Zig Clean Color fluorescent pens. The photos always dull it down a bit, but in person, it is bright!

Alrighty, that’s all I have for today! Check back soon as the new September TT release is right around the corner!Β  πŸ˜‰

Be sure to hop over and check out the new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE!Β  πŸ™‚

Technique Tuesday: Christmas in August!

A new month, a new bunch of stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday ! They can all be found HERE! Not only are Christmas stamps in this release, but lots of camera-y goodness and of course, the latest flower. πŸ™‚

Today, I’ll share the Christmas cards I made because they make me laugh! And I NEED to make more…so hoping this gets me going! πŸ™‚

Both cards use awesomely funny new sentiments from this Dear Santa set. Crack. Me. Up. πŸ™‚

I stamped this on kraft and colored with colored pencils. I also used the new planning set, Christmas Doodles ( ❀ these little doodles!) for stamping a tone on tone background for this card base. The die is a favorite go-to: Postage Card Die.

This next card, I also use the same Dear Santa set, but also I used the newly released, Spirit of December. A versatile set with simple images (aka, not intimidating) and great sentiments for scrapbook use (and ALWAYS cards)! πŸ˜‰

I colored the images with Copic markers and added some washi tape along the bottom before stitching the panel on.

How super funny is this sentiment?! LOL! How many of these could I send out? Bwwwaaahahhaa! πŸ˜‰

Be sure to check out ALL the fun new stuff from Technique Tuesday HERE! It’s a release I can’t wait to get out and use some more!Β  πŸ™‚

Happy Monday! I thought a few of these TT cards I made were fitting for today, being Monday and all. πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ™‚

I used Technique Tuesday’s new Sweet Succulents set ( ❀ ) and Sassy Lazy Thoughts. This new Sassy set is a freaking riot!! πŸ™‚ 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,Β  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! πŸ™‚
