Happy Father's Day

Here are the cards that my husband received today. The card from my DS has two digi images I received from Birdie Brown (www.birdiebrown.blogspot.jp/2013/06/June-freebies-challenge.html), Rockin' Doggie.  Troy colored the images then I assembled the card for him. The bottom of the You Rock is popped on pop dots as well as the to of the Doggie's head and ears.

This next card I my card. The stamps are from Unity from the set The Man. The shirt image is great for paper piecing! The technique used for the background layer is a Technique Junkie technique called Pressed Stains from the June/July 2013 newsletter..

Stamps: The Man (Unity); Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento),  Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage and Scattered Straw (Ranger); Paper:  Certainly Celery and Night of Navy (SU) and Solar White (Neenah); Accessories: Labels Five and Grand Calibur (Spellbinders), Chevron (Embossalicious).

Rainbow Edges


I needed a quick and easy card for my son to give a neighbor as a thank you card. I used the Technique Junkies Rainbow Edges technique in the Dec 12/ Jan 13 issue. I pretty much CASED Holly Brown's artwork from the issue since I loved the simple elegance. 

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo's Thankful for Everything; Ink: Memento's Bambo Leaves, Ranger's Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutter, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw; paper: SU's Old Olive, Neevah's Classic Nateral White, Accessories: Spellbinder's Labels Four Small and Gold Labels Four, CB's Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Butterfly Beauty

A quick post to share my Butterfly Beauty card I'm sending to someone special.  I received a couple of Spellbinder dies for Christmas and have been dying to try them out.  Here is the Butterfly Magic Expandable die as the background.  I also received Twisted Metal Tags and Accents which coordinates with Unity's Twisted Metal Tags & Accents stamp set and used both items here.  The word "beauty" is from Unity's Butterfly Beauty stamp set.  I used Stickles on the outlining dots around "beauty" to separate the Lavender Lace layers and Crystle Gemstones from Hero Arts for the corners.  A fairly easy card, but one that I hope is elegant in it's simplicity.

Stamps: Unity; Ink: Lavender Lace (sponging) & Elegant Eggplant (SU!); Paper: Lavender Lace, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black (SU!); Accessories: Spellbinder Dies, Stickles, Crystle Gemstones, Cuttlebug, Xyron.
