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.

Birthday Woof

Just finished making a card for Troy to take to a friend's birthday party tomorrow, (well, actually later this morning!) She is a sweet neighbor and her dog is our dog's best friend!  So a puppy card was a no-brainer!

I used the puppy from SNSS's Woof You, the Wood background is a free digi from GinaK, and the sentiment from SU! Colored the puppy with Copic markers and added some clear glitter pen on the bandana and eyes. Stamped sentiment on some adhesive backed ribbon in my stash and layered it on one of the SU pinks.  Hopefully this will be a good card for a 10 y/o girl!

Have a great summer!
