Happy Father's Day

I love this fun paper that is perfect for masculine cards. I used a simple layout for the card, using both sides of this double-sided paper.
 
I heat embossed the happy sentiment and popped it up on foam tape. I did the same with father's day with white embossing powder then cut a small flag in one end. I added a small strip of brown cardstock and finished with some black half pearls.
 

Supplies: White and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Carta Bella, Papertray Ink Birthday Bash Sentiments, Hero Arts- Happy Stamp, half pearls.

Happy Birthday.. just a little late

I love this layout for cards, it adds interest yet it is not complicated to achieve. I cut the top panel and used a stitched die cut to add the angle. I stamped the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape. 

I finished with some gems.

Sunday Stamps - SCC180

I was so happy to get into my craft room today, I have not created in way way too long. My sister Barb encouraged me to join the current Sunday Stamps challenge. I don't think I have played along with this challenge before so of course, I could not resist.


I am the first to admin that ovals stump me, not sure why but I think this one turned out ok. I used this pretty double-sided floral paper. I die cut the oval and large flag then stamped the sentiment. I added some twine and when I was frustrated by the embellishment.. do add a butterfly, sequins or gems but nothing seemed to work. This little bee saved the say ;).


Supplies: White cardstock, Designer Paper-Echo Park, CC Designs-Birthday Wishes, Paper Smooches - misc die cuts, twine.

I think this texting stamp set from Simon Says Stamps is so cute. I created this farewell notecard a little smaller than an A2 sized card.

Sending Love - Artsy style

My sister is an artist, she never fails to impress me with all her talents so I know she would appreciate my attempt and with an artsy style card. She did which makes me very happy.

I saw this video on YouTube and wanted to try it, I have such a huge supply of embossing powders that are not loved enough. I think I may have to try this technique again.

I added layers of cardstock to create a frame, I heat embossed the sentiment and added a small frame to that as well.


Supplies: White and black cardstock, Hero Arts - Many Everyday Messages, misc embossing powders.
