Technique Tuesday + GIVEAWAY [post4]

Hello, friends! 

**GIVEAWAY details below! Be sure to stop by HERE and HERE and HERE for another chance to win

I'm back with some another fun card using the 
 NEW Technique Tuesday A Little Prickly stamp and die set. I will also be having a giveaway😁 so be sure to visit back each day for a chance to win
Today I'm sharing 4 different ways to create a CAS card using this new set. 4 cards for the price of one! These cards are easy to mass produce, and you could easily swap out the sentiments to create a set of cards too! 

I stepped out of my comfort zone and did some more coloring 😬 **NOTE: Coloring is out of my comfort zone but so is a clean and simple card! I'm way out of my comfort zone today. LOL! 


This first card was super easy to do by using Jane Davenport's Mermaid Markers! I embossed the image first using Imagine Crafts VersaMark ink and white embossing power and then colored in the background with a mix of marker ink. SIMPLE! 

The second card was also simple because I stamped the image and sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink by Imagine Crafts (my FAVOOOOOOOOOOORITE) and added a gem! I think I have the hang of this CAS designing 😜 LOL! The hardest part about this card was trying to figure out which color of gem to use! I could just make three of the same card using all the colors! LOL! 
And that brings us to the last two cards. My CAS design ideas stopped! LOL! I just had to add a bit of stitching... and Nuvo clear drops! I'm more of a layered gal for card designs- I prefer to add a couple of details when crafting :) 

I used a mixture of ZigClean markers to color and highlight on this first card. Take note----> I'm definitely STILL trying to understand how to use these markers! Beginner level for sure! 
I used more of my NeoColor II crayons to color this cactus image, same card design but different coloring medium. 



That's it for me today! But wait!!! I have a giveaway to share!!!

Today's card is probably the most like me because it has lots of layering, stitching, patterned paper (one of my fav from Simple Stories Posh 6x6 pad), and all of the stamping techniques I shared the last two days!!! This card is definitely ME! 

One of the things I love to do is to mix and match sentiment stamps or images. I think these two sentiments from the Technique Tuesday A Little Prickly set are great together! That metal ampersand embellishment is one of my favorites! SOOOOO FUN!

Technique Tuesday + GIVEAWAY [post2]

Hello, friends! 

**GIVEAWAY details below! Be sure to stop by HERE for another chance to win! 
I'm back with some another fun card using the 
 NEW Technique Tuesday A Little Prickly stamp and die set. I will also be having a giveaway😁 so be sure to visit back each day for a chance to win

I used a couple of techniques for this next card, including masking. It's one of my favorite techniques to use when stamping. I masked the pot/vase so that the patterned paper would stand out more. Masking is also how I stamped the sentiment on the banner and even for the strips of paper! 

I also used a technique that I find most enjoyable- FUSSY CUTTING! I love cutting out images or small pieces with my tiny scissors:) 
The last technique I used is one I'm trying to use more- coloring. For this card I used some of my NeoColor II crayons. Actually, I didn't use just some of them... I mixed and blended at least ten of these colors to color with! LOL! I'm still trying to understand watercoloring and Copic coloring! LOL! 🙃


That's it for me today! But wait!!! I have a giveaway to share!!!

Technique Tuesday + GIVEAWAY [post1]

Hello, friends! 

**GIVEAWAY details below! 


It's been a looooooooooong time since I've been able to just craft for fun---- lately I've been working behind the scenes on some bible journaling classes, different projects for companies, and so much more!

For the next four days I will be sharing different projects that I created using the NEW Technique Tuesday A Little Prickly stamp and die set. I will also be having a giveaway😁 

This first card was created using some inspiration that I found in the Bahamas on one of our cruises (I also used it for another card about five years ago). I did cut the stamp set in order to make creating the background easier. *NOTE: No stamp was harmed in the process! You can still use this stamp as one piece or separate! 
Another technique I used for this card was to use washi tape as my "coloring". This is really easy- just lay your washi tape over the image and then use a craft knife to carefully cut around the edge of the image. 
The final technique I used on this card was to stitch a heart around the sentiment. I looooooove adding a bit of stitching to my cards. 

That's it for me today! But wait!!! I have a giveaway to share!!!
