Modern Shout it from the Rooftops - Simon Says Stamp

*I have a step-by-step of my coloring for this card on my Instagram Story today - I also have started doing weekly giveaways over there if you want to come check out this weeks! You can follow me on Instagram HERE!*

Hello! I'm sharing a card today using one of my favorite recently released stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp called From the Rooftops. I love the clever sentiments that go with the fun scenes! Today's card uses some gray cardstock, heat embossing, and colored pencils!


I have been drooling over the Polychromos Colored Pencils, but since I don't have them yet, I decided I should probably pull out some of the ones I actually DO have and use them! One set that hasn't seen NEARLY enough use is my Chameleon Double Ended Colored Pencils - they work so well for easy blending and were perfect for this technique!


I heat embossed in gold, then used both ends of various pencils to color in the skyline. I created a window in the same color of cardstock and placed it over the top with foam adhesive. Finished off by heat embossing my sentiments on black cardstock and attaching them in place!

Tic Tac Poo - Happy Stinkin' Birthday

Good morning! I'm back with another fun card today using an ADORABLE Technique Tuesday stamp set with a super fun Pretty Pink Posh die! For some reason when I saw this super cute stamp set, I thought how fun it would be to have a "Tic Tac Toe" board with a toilet paper and poo image! Heehee! I think it would also be fun to attache velcro to the back and turn it into a game - whatcha think? Would you play that game?


I used the adorable Tic Tac Toe Die from Pretty Pink Posh, adhered it to some Lawn Fawn Watercolor Pattern Paper, then stamped all my images from Love Stinks in the centers of each square. I then stamped them on a separate piece of white cardstock to color, then fussy cut the colored portions of the images out and paper pieced them onto the card. 


I heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a little label from Little Labels Crafting Dies from Technique Tuesday, and adhered that with foam adhesive for dimension. 


Finished off with a good coat of Tonic Crystal Glaze on the poo (shiny poo!) and some Crate Paper pattern paper layered underneath. I was kind of thinking this would be a fun guy card - what do you think?

Crow About It - You're the Best

Good morning! Today I'm sharing another card using some of the newest Heffy Doodle Release - oh my goodness, this release is ADORBS! This card was a fun instance where I had the PERFECT pattern paper to go with that darling image - they were made for each other, don't you think?!?!?!?


For my card I used Eggcellent News for my image, die cut it with the coordinating Eggcellent News Dies, and had fun coloring it with Copics. I stamped a sentiment from Whatcha Sayin' on a speech bubble cut with the coordinating Whatcha Sayin' Dies.


I used Clover Frames Dies to cut my center frame, cutting it once from kraft and once from white cardstock, then layering it together - popping up the white part with foam adhesive. I also layered up my pattern paper, adding a bit of white paper with a torn edge for some texture. Finally, added my little birdie and sentiment with foam adhesive as well!

Stands Out from the Crowd - Technique Tuesday Giraffe

Hello! Popping in today to share another card using a sweet stamp set by Technique Tuesday - less than a week until we get to start sharing some sneak peeks of the new release for March - and they are adorable!!!


For this card I used the super cute June the Giraffe. In true Technique Tuesday fashion, this stamp set has tons of fun and cute sentiments! And the giraffe is pretty darn cute as well!


I colored it with watercolors, added the birdie standing on the edge of the sentiment, and added some white gel pen accents on the giraffe before matting with coordinating cardstock and mounting on a white cardbase.
