Hi Everyone, For these two cards, I was making boy's birthday cards.
The first one is just the rodeo Billy stamp from Pink Cat Studio, I colored him with markers and then sponged on one of the new In Colors Soft Suede. The rest is pretty self explanatory.
The second Billy is also from Pink Cat Studio, it is from the Dress up Billy Plate, I stamped and colored each piece then cut them out and put them onto Blue card stock and the rest again is pretty self explanatory. The tinker toys dp is one I've had for quite some time, and thought it worked perfect for this card.
Thanks for stopping by.

Bloomin' Beautiful

This is a card I made the other day, the flower stamp is from the set Bloomin' Beautiful by SU.
The sentiment is from Sincere Sentiments by SU. I water colored the flowers on another piece of cardstock and they are on with dimensional tape. And I used the scallop punch by SU to make the scallops on the green cardstock. The designer paper is also SU called Tea Party, All supplies can be purchased at my website. The link is on the right hand side.

One for the guys

Hi Everyone, this is a card I made last night, It's a challenge card for which asked for you to make a card for a boy or man's card , and I did this from one of the retired sets of SU. It's called on the fly, I stamped it on a tan color then water colored it and put it on a burgundy and then on navy, to give it a natural feel I added raffia around the blue, stamped the fish onto a separate piece and cut him out making him 3d, then added the greeting which comes from the Upsy Daisy set from SU.
Thanks again for looking

Sympathy Cards

These are three sympathy cards that I've made for another customer. I still have to make 3 get well cards for her, maybe work on them tonight or tomorrow after work. Anyway the first is using the SU set Thoughts and Prayers, The first I did is a monochromatic green card, I like the way it turned out, stamped in old olive. The second I used markers and stamped it on White and also stamped the sentiment and then layered it on blue and then on a cuttlebug embossing folder spots and dots. The third card is made with close as a memory set from SU. The flowers are stamped in bravo burgundy, but I stamped off on a sheet of paper first, before stamping it, then the paper comes from a big case of paper that i got from Costco, and then put it on Bravo Burgundy cardstock. Anyway, I've got a couple more cards to show, but will probably post them tomorrow. They are of a different theme.
Oh and another thought I was asked to join another blogging sisters group, which I accepted, some really talented ladies there, go check out there blogs, they are posted on my side bar.
