Birthday Cowboy

  Hello, Hello! 

I have been enjoying playing with older stamps and pulled out another oldie but goodie from MFT.  I made a birthday card for a friend's grandson who lives in the great state of Texas.  I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches


I really loved this line of stamps- so cute!  

Here is the sketch~

I used the colors from Sunday Stamps~

This cowboy was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I have been trying to use up patterned paper (use up is a relative term- I'm just trying to use SOME!) so this sketch was perfect.  I used Versafine Claire Nocturne Ink for the large sentiment- I love the coverage you get with this ink.  
The sentiment strip was die cut with a Divinity Designs Pierced Rectangle Die.  
A few enamel dots finish this fun card.  

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week!

Christmas Holly

 Hi Friends! 

Christmas in July!  It is stretch for me to make Christmas cards before autumn, but as it is July, I thought I would crank one or two out.  


I used a couple of my favorite Christmas sets from SnSS (now known as Creative Worship Stamps).  I used the Holly Christmas and Christmas Pine Stamp Sets for this card.  I also used the Diamond Tile Stencil.  

The images were colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I used some Festive Berries Distress Ink with the stencil for my background panel.  I spattered a bit of water on the background as well as some white paint for a bit of a distressed look.  The sentiment was stamped and the card assembled.  As per usual, a few SSS Moonshine Sequins finish the card. 

I am linking up to Inkspirational- Use  Stencils

Bearing Fruit

 Hello, Hello! 

I hope you are enjoying the summer months when life slows down and we spend more time with family and friends.  

I make most of my cards for a friend who sells them to people at her church, friends, etc.  She is always looking for scripture verse cards.  I pulled out a Divinity Designs Stamp Set-Strawberries- with the verse John 15:5.  It makes for a great card paired with these summer strawberries.  


The image was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I used a retired IO Stamps gingham background stamp and some Lawn Fawn ink in Guava for the background panel.  I framed with with a scalloped rectangle frame using MFT Stamps Stitched Rectangles Scalloped Edge Frame Dies.  
The sentiment panel was backed with red cs.  The panels were adhered to the card base.  I popped the image up on scrap cs and adhered it to the card.  I added a bit more greenery with some scraps I had on my desk- leaves and clover bits from the PTI Die Set, Into the Blooms-Clover.  
I added a few gems to the card and called it done.  
I am linking up to the following challenges~ 

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday~ the challenge was a pick your sketch; I used sketch 582~ 


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

O, Sing!

 Happy July Fourth!  

Morning was rainy here, so I crafted a bit and finished up this card.  


I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches









And colors from Color Dare Color Challenge~  


I used the center, vertical row.  

The bird and flowers were colored with Copics and fussy cut out.  I diecut a ring using IO Stamps Wacky Stitched Circle Dies.  

The card needed something else, so I heat embossed a retired IO Stamps background stamp in white in the center of the card base and fading out.  


Everything was adhered to the card base, with some of the flowers and bird being popped up on scraps of cs.  A few sequins finish the card.  

I am also linking up to Word Art Wednesday.  

Thanks for stopping by!
