Happy Father's Day!!

Hi everyone...Happy Father's Day and happy first day of summer! Hope you all had a great weekend! I just wanted to share the father's day cards that I made for my dad, step-dad, and my bf's dad.

I basically used the same layout for all three cards (I just switched up the stamps and the colours of paper). I inked up Beerafella or Grillafella (from Stamping Bella)with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured them in with my Stampin' Write markers. I chose to use either Pacific Point, Baja Blue, or Kraft cardstock as my base for the cards and added Manchester Designer Series paper as the background. I ran some scraps of cardstock through my cuttlebug using the labels two nestabilites (love them...I think they are more masculine looking than labels one) and popped it up on the Manchester dp. I also popped up the fellas and added some glossy accents to all three images and stickles to the Beerafella. I finished off the cards by adding some Whisper White organza ribbon and some rhinestones from Basic Grey.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my Father's day creations...have a great night everyone!!

Monstah Bash Birthday!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday...can you believe that it's almost the weekend? Where did this week go (actually, where did this month go? June is flying by so quicky!)?

I made this card for my friend Marilyn's's actually a belated birthday card from our group of friends at work. I've had this cute little stamp (Monstah Bash) from Stamping Bella for a while and had never inked it up, so I thought I would use it for this cute but simple little card.

I inked up the image using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured it in with my Stampin' Write markers and outlined with a glitter gellyroll pen. I also had a couple of sheets of some really cute dp (Bella Blvd Make A Wish) laying around and thought it would like really cute on the card. I used my Mega Nestabilites Curved Rectangles on the dp and the Yoyo Yellow cardstock (from SU!)and popped it up on the Whisper White cardstock (from SU!). I popped up the Monstah's and added some glossy accents and rhinestones to finish off the card. My friend hasn't seen the card yet (hopefully she'll receive it sometime tomorrow) and I'm sure she'll be pleased with it!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my card...I'm hoping to have more cards to share with you this weekend. Have a great night everyone!

Tilda with Ladybug

Hi everyone!! Hope you all had great weekends!! I've been wanting to post these cards for a bit, but since I made them for a mingle, I wanted to make sure that the recipents had a chance to receive them first.

I inked up Tilda with Ladybug with Versamark ink, embossed it with black embossing powder, and I coloured them in with my new SU! Stampin' Write Markers (lovin' them)!! I used some Rose Red cardstock from SU! and ran it through my Big Shot using my Top Note die. I popped that up on some Raspberry Tart Designer Series paper and added some Whisper White Organza Ribbon, some pearls from Basic Grey, a Prima flower with a brad, and some glossy accents to finish off the card. I'm really happy with how these cards turned out (I think that Tilda image is so cute)!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations...I'm hoping to post some more this upcoming week as it will be a less busy week for me (last week was crazy busy with getting ready for my dance recital that was held this weekend). Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening!!

Tilda In Spring Rain

Hi everyone! Hope that you are all having a great day so far! I just wanted to share this card that I made about a week or so back for a mingle (I was waiting until I knew that the person had received it because I don't know if they check out my blog or not).

I inked up Tilda in Spring Rain on some SU! Whisper Whitecardstock with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, coloured it in with my Tombows, and added some glossy accents to the raindrops and puddle. I layered that on some SU! Baja Breeze cardstock and pop dotted it on top of some patterned paper from the SEI Poppy paper pack. I also added a bit of SU! Whisper White Organza Ribbon, a couple of Prima flowers, and a clear rhinestone brad from SU! to finish off the card. I'm pretty happy with how this card turned out and I'm glad that the recipent was happy with it too.

Thanks for stopping by to check out what I've been up to. I'm hoping to get some card making in today, so I may be back later with more to share. Hope everyone has a great afternoon!!
