Friday is for Fellas

I have the fella cards for you today....the background on this one is from Impression-Obsession done with distress inks.  The fishing strip is using Inky Antics stamps and the fishing image is from Draw Me A Daydream.  I have a bit of You're So Fine Glitter along the left side that gives the feeling of water.
This card uses an image from PSX and is a perfect card for the golfing fellas.  The paper on this one is flocked a bit for some fun interest.

Frilly Card Trio

Well, I guess I didn't get around to posting yesterday....and I'm in the mood for frills today, so maybe tomorrow I will share some fella cards.    This first card uses an adorable image from Sherri Baldy's My Besties collection.  I found some fun paper and a die cut in my this and that bin and combined them into this fun color-block style card.  The large sentiment is from Hero Arts and the birthday sentiment is from From The Heart Stamps.  Just love her little mix-matched outfit!
This card features a flower from a Stampin' Up! stamp set and some fun papers from Stampin' Up! as well.  Love the bakers twine over the crimped cardstock on the card.
This last card features an image by Faith from From the Heart Stamps for Whipper Snapper.  I love coloring vases like this!  Vintage lace and a bit of ribbon finish off the card.

Summertime Fun Cards and More! many fun images for this season!  I love this little lady, so fun to color up with Copic markers.  I added lots of Stardust detailing on this one...the flowers, border, water and the little cutie herself are all touched with a bit o bling for a sweet effect!
This card is colored with Copic markers on glossy cardstock.  I used a fun Out Of The Box technique on this card to cut down on the white space surrounding this image.  The border down the left side of the card is You're So Fine glitter on tape.

I have a bit of Lilla Rose fun to share with you today as well!  My friend Debbie Fisher is reviewing a Lilla Rose flexi-clip and if you are not a registered customer with Lilla Rose, you have a chance to win one of your very own!!  Check out her post and let her know you are coming from my blog!! Good Luck!!

Come on back tomorrow for some more cards for fellas!!  Happy Tuesday!!

A Super Duo!

I have a few cards of the patriotic sort today.  This first card features an image and sentiment from Your Next Stamp.  The addition of You're So Fine Glitter and sequins is so fun!
The second card features an image from my brother's Draw Me A Daydream line.  I love the Cuttlebug star folder with this.  The fireworks are glittered up with a Stardust pen.

Thanks for popping by, hope your weekend was grand!!

Happy Birthday to me!  Today I'm sharing the day with my niece who is having her wedding many dreams are wrapped up in an unknown future...but thankful for the assurance that we don't head off into our dreams alone.

Today's cards use an image from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps and is done in a variety of different soft and subtle paper.  I love the papers, the distressing and the dimension on these cards.
This car has a totally different feel with the brighter papers.

and finally this card that adds a few border punches and nailheads.

Have a happy day!!

Floral Card Set

I have a fun set of cards today featuring a Stampin' Up set.  I do not know the name of this set....and it must be my mom's because I can't find it here.  I had some bits and pieces stamped up from some long-ago stamp-a-thon we had....and I decided to work them up into a fun set of cards.  The cards have some Sakura Stardust detailing on them that you cannot see in the photo.  I also added some paper embroidery on each card to dress it up a bit.  I also added some iridescent sequins to the large flowers after I took the photo.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

This card also has the Stardust detailing and sequins added to the final card.  The saying on this one is by Penny Black.

...and same for this card.

This card uses a sentiment from Paper Inspirations.  

Happy Thursday!!
