Wedding #2

Here is the second of 2 wedding cards that made.  I stamped the couple in black, colored the image with Sharpie markers.  I used a Quicky Glue Pen and put glitter on the brides dress.  I used Freshly Made Sketches #32. I love out this turned out.  The gold paper was already embossed and I think it looks good with the Maroon, I have no idea where I got it, it has been in my stash for a very long time. I figured it was time to use it. :) The ribbon is actually a shear brown but looks gold on the card.  It was the closest I could come to matching the gold paper.  Thanks for looking.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Happy Couple-Stampendous
Ink: Tuxedo Black-Momento, Sharpie Markers
Paper: White-Georgia Pacific, Maroon-The Paper Studio
DP: Gold-Unknown
Extras: Square and Circle Nesties, Ribbon, Glitter-Su, Rhinestones-Best Occasions

Split Negative, FMS#41

Hello, This card was made for my challenge with Lisa.  We decided to do the Split Negative technique.  I have wanted to give this a try for awhile now, and it seemed like a good challenge for Lisa and I.  It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be, love when that happens.  First I cut out two large squares using my Nesties.  Than I put a little adhesive on the back of the square and lined it up perfectly on my self healing mat, than used my stampa ma jig and stamped on first the green cardstock and embossed it in white.  I repeated the process again on the white cardstock and embossed it in green.  I than laid the 2 squared on top of each other and cut them right down the middle.  They lined up perfectly.  I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketch #41. I also made the card a square one, I don't make square cards very often but the tree stamp just looks better on a square card.  I really had a lot of fun with this technique and have the other halves of the tree's to make another one.  Thanks for looking.

Stamps:Tree-Inkadinkado, Sentiment-Art Impressions
Ink:Versa Mark, Handsome Hunter-SU
Paper:White-Georgia Pacific, Green and Red-The Paper Studio

Just Bee-cause!!

Hello, last week was a very busy week for me.  I worked a sports station for day camp for Cub Scouts.  It was a lot of fun but very exhausting.

I managed to get this card done before camp started, but never got the chance to put it on here.  This is the challenge I did with Lisa.  We were to use the colors, black, yellow and white.  It was a lot of fun. I used  Freshly Made Sketch #15 I have used this sketch a lot lately, which you will see later when I add those cards to my blog.  Can't wait for the next challenge that Lisa and I will do.  Until next time.

Thanks for looking,

40th Birthday!

Hello, Happy Flag Day!  Today is also Richard's 40th Birthday, although he won't admit it. :)  This is the card I made for him.  I stamped the image in black ink and colored it with Bic Markit Markers. 

The sentiment I used works perfect for him as he keeps telling us he is 36, but really no matter how many times he tells us that, he is still 40. :)  Eventually he will come to terms with it............Maybe. hehehe

So with all that said, HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY, RICHARD!!!!!

Paper: card base is Stampin Up, but not sure which color.  DP is Paper Studio
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, SU Night of Navy and Bic Markit's
