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. :)

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.

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!

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. :)

meg-schoolsout-smDon’t ya just long for summer vacation! Well Meg sure does or did anyway (it took me a little bit to post this card, so her 5 days of waiting for it is up I’m sure).

Here’s what Meg did to make the card.

1. I used Crate Paper’s School Spirit and Emma’s Shoppe paper pads for the background.
2. I printed the sentiment on Papertrey Ink’s Ocean Tides cardstock in light gray using Love Ya Like a Sister font, then whet over it with a white pencil for a chalk look.
3. I stamped Kati Ann has Something to Say onto white paper, colored, cut out, and adhered with foam tape.
4. I stamped and embossed the banner, cut out, and adhered.

Meg created this too cute card! She said that it’s taken up permanent residence on her desk because a paper piece Callie (dog) makes any day brighter. I agree!

Here’s what Meg did:

  1. I printed out the quote using Love Ya Like a Sister font onto Echo Park “A Walk in the Park” paper and cut it out.
  2. I adhered-some directly to the card, some with popdots, and “is not” with multiple layers of popdots.
  3. I stamped Miss Callie twice onto the same yellow patterned paper, cutting out her body from one and her head from the other, then more popdots!
  4. I added some sewing around the edge because why not? (which she says is her new stamping room motto)

meg-smellcarrots-detailMeg is at it again with another Easter card. This one is so cheerful with it’s Springtime color palette of pink, green and a lovely yellow. I just love all the textures each of the papers have and the little pink paw pad on Curious Cottontail is so cute.

To make one of your own, Meg wrote down the following instructions:

  1. I crumpled a piece of white cardstock until it was soft enough to peel apart, then stamped Curious Cottontail Bunny 3 times.
  2. I added some grey shading and pink pads.
  3. I cut out her entire body, then cut out just her bunny butt from the second image, and just her feet and cottontail from the third image, then layered them with popdots.

The sentiment is from The Cat’s Pajamas, and the paper is all retired Stampin’ Up patterned paper.

meg-happyeaster-smMeg made the cutest little Easter card! She used the Flopsy bunny stamp and I’m sure there’s a wonderful surprise inside that colorful egg! :) I suppose Flopsy (and Kaitlyn) will just have to wait until Easter to find out.

Meg used papers and stickers from the Echo Park Little Girl collection. And here’s what she did:

  1. I cut out the banner using PaperTrey Ink’s banner die, and attached with Tim Holtz’s tiny attacher.
  2. I stamped Flopsy Bunny’s Got an Egg twice onto white paper and once onto the striped patterned paper.
  3. I added some light grey Copic shading to Flopsy and cut out.
  4. I added the egg with a popdot, and cut out his hands from the second stamped image to adhere to the egg

meg-noodles-smMeg sent in this card and I love what she did with the sentiment – crossing out “days” and then “weeks” and adding in “months”. Sometimes it certainly feels that way!

Here’s what Meg did:
1. Kitty Noodles was stamped in brown, then heat-embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then I used Wild Honey Distress Ink and an aqua painter to paint him, and carefully cut him out (hint: put some clear packing tape on the back before cutting out those thin little whiskers).
2. I printed the sentiment on my computer, doing a couple test drafts and using my stamp-a-ma-jig to check the placement of the Journal Blotch Circle before printing on the kraft paper and stamping the blotch.
3. I distress the edges of all the paper, and attached everything with my sewing machine and tim holtz’s tiny attacher.

meg-chicken-smAnother “Did someone say cake” card from Meg! This time it’s a frazzled Feather’s MacGee chicken – bwwwwaaaaak!

Here’s what Meg did:
The first is a fun clean-and-simple one with Feathers MacGee.
1. I used Papertrey Ink’s Sunshine Impression plate on Papertrey Ink Harvest Gold cardstock.
2. I cut out another piece of Harvest Gold using Nestabilities Labels 4 and stamped Mr MacGee onto it, and did some quick Copic coloring. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Danube Blue.
3. I added a Labels 4 frame from some old SU patterned paper, popped up on pop-dots.

meg-dog-smMeg actually sent this card to me in the mail! I was so excited when I opened it up. I love the 3-D dog and can’t wait to try the technique. AND best of all you don’t need those silly glasses like you do at the movies.
1. Fargo Fradey was stamped three times onto Papertrey Ink’s Harvest Gold. I added some shading with Copic Y21, and used prismacolor pencils on his eyes, nose, and tongue. Then I cut him out in layers (his back legs and tail; his body and front legs; and his head) and attached using foam tape.
2. I made a spring for him to bounce off the page with by wrapping a piece of wire around a pencil about eight times, then used 3-D glue dots to embed each end of the wire and attach to the card and to Fargo.
3. The patterned paper is Stampin’ Up (discontinued) Washington Apple. I stamped the sentiment using Stampin’ Up’s Bashful Blue, and attached it with a pop-dot.
