2 Cool for School | for Jillibean Soup



Time to share a couple of cards that I made this month for Jillibean Soup using the newest Too Cool for School stamps, dies and embellishments. These products for me can be used to create some really fun masculine cards for the guys in your life! Both of these cards use the matching stamp set as the focus of the card with the papers and a few embellishments as the closers.

For my first card I stamped the 'cool' banner from the 2 Cool for School stamp set repeatedly to create a custom background paper. I finished it off with Too Legit patterned paper from the background and a large Pea Pod part from the collection.





For my second card I used the 2 Cool for School stamp set once again this time randomly stamping the control button from the game controller. The sentiment was constructed from the Alphbeans stickers and the controller is from the Pea Pod parts and I used a puffy sticker to place over the game controller on it--fits perfectly!




Thanks for popping by today and I hope that I have inspired you to give this collection a try. All the products are listed below for your convenience so that you can shop at not additional cost to you!

MFT Stamps 2018 Card Design Superstar





I was excited to use my new MFT Stamps Just Beclaws stamp set and Die-namic before summer is officially over! Once again today is super hot and it's the strangest thing to see all the leaves that have turned for autumn raining down. Around here, even when we have a warm fall, the autumn air is usually cooler and crisp when we start to see the leaves come down.

I am entering this card into the MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar contest in the Clean and Simple Category, my favourite type of card to create! My cute little crabby was coloured with Copic markers, and I added googley eyes to him for fun! I am pretty sure that Karolyn Loncon added googley eyes to her crab during the June release posts! The beach and water were sponged with some MFT Stamps ink cubes and the sand detail using the die from Just Beclaws was added to the sand. The ice cream cone was Copic coloured and sparkled with the camera shy and elusive clear Wink of Stella! 




Here are the markers I used...



Bohemian Brew Designs | for Jillibean Soup



Playing a bit of catch up this week. I have a couple cards that were shared on the Jillibean Soup blog last week using the Bohemian Brew collection of papers, embellishments and stamps!

This first one was stamped with the Bohemian Brew clear stamp set in colours that matched with the collection. A great way to stretch your stash!






Love making my own designs using the stamps from Bohemian Brew clear stamp set. My MISTI makes lining the stamps up so easy!
