annie-goose-smThis cute card was sent in by Annie. Her colors are so fresh, from the paper she chose – polka dots and the teal-green to the bright yellow goose.

The phrase stamp she added is perfect too. Sometimes I need to remind myself not to get my undies in a twist and to just stop to smell the roses. :)

meg-hello-smMeg has got summer on her mind. She said she thought this card would be great to send to a kid at summer camp. I agree! Kind of makes ME want to go to summer camp – well, minus the bugs of course. :)

annie-summertime-sm Annie sent in this cute little summertime card! The water looks so refreshing and little Lilly is ready to jump in!

Annie said she used Copics to color everything in. She actually used Copic ink on a rough washcloth and dabbed it on the hills to give them a little texture. Pretty cool technique. Oh…and she drew the hills and the little trees herself.

meg-funinthesun-smMeg sent in this rather bubbly card. :) I thought it was so much fun and certainly fit’s Scooter (the dog) perfectly.

According to Meg the bubbles were a cinch! Here’s what she did…

1. I stamped Scooter ‘s Day at the Pool on A Muse Ocean paper, then stamped him again on white paper, colored him with copics, cut him out, then added some Glossy Effects to his fins and snorkel mask.
2. I used nestabilities and a good ol’ hole punch to cut out the bubbles.
3. I popped Scooter and the sentiment up on foam tape, then the other larger circles are popped up on two layers of foam tape.

annie-justanote-smToday I’m posting “Just a little note” from¬† Annie. I suppose like Hallmark says “when you care enough to send the very best”, say it with a cranky grandma and blah blah blah. Hee hee.

Annie said she colored everything in with Copics and used glossy accents on granny’s glasses. She also added a small rhinestone on the flower brooch on her sweater.

I also wanted to add a little note here, please forgive my tardiness! I had written a bunch of posts but saved them as drafts and never set them to publish – where was my mind! Hopefully it’s come back now.

meg-robots-smI thought this was so cute! Meg said she made this card for the principal–“The Boys” just seem appropriate for a math department card!

I just love that that she stamped them on the patterned paper and cut them out – they look so happy in their dapper outfits.

And don’t forget about the inside of the card!
meg-robots-inside

Here are Meg’s instructions:

1. I used seven one-inch strips of paper from Crate Paper’s School Spirit paper pad to create the background.
2. I printed the sentiment using my computer, then stamped The Boys on it.  I then stamped and embossed the boys onto the patterned paper, cut out and adhered.
3. I stamped the sentiments onto the grade card (from the same paper pack)
4. I didn’t have room for the robot dog on the front of the card, but I couldn’t leave him out, so he’s a surprise on the inside. :)
