Masculine Birthday - Air Travel


Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a masculine birthday card. 
I used Stampers Anonymous "Air Travel".  There are great
stamps in this set and I used 3 images, the plane, compass and 
boarding ticket stamps.  The 'happy birthday' is 
from a Simon Says Stamp set.

This card was inspired by one I saw one Pinterest. 
It was nautical theme with ombre background.

The background is a painters tape technique, where 
you ink the sticky side of the painters tape and 
press the tape on your paper.  I repeated with 3 inks. 
The inks are PTI Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Classic Kraft
and True Black.  Papers are PTI Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, 
Vintage Cream and True Black.

Challenges:
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
Polkadoodles - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Masculine with sentiment

Happy New Year's Eve!

We are down to the last Saturday in 2016, can't believe it! 
Today, I have of my favorite cards made this year.


This card uses "Love Songs" from Sugar Nellie. 
The Funky Kits store is closing, 
so if you like this image it is only £1, while still available.
Image colored with Copic markers and background is chalk.


This is Bebe, which is found in the Simply Adorable Digital
section of the Sugar Nellie store.  Funky Kits is closing so
image available for only a short time.
Image colored with Copic markers and background is chalk.


This is Scrapberry's To My Best Friend.
The image was colored with Copic markers, background is chalk.


It is an image released by The Angel Company in 2011.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve Day!

Today, I have a prototype card I made for this year,
but making 90-100 seemed like too much for the 
time I had to make them.

It is a simplified version of a posted card idea on 
Taylored Expressions website, for the Nativity border die.

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions set Rejoice!

Cardstock is PTI White, Kraft and Black.
Inks are PTI black and Pure Poppy.

The red and white striped grosgrain ribbon is May Arts.

I hope to use this card next year.  This has never happened, imagine to
have a Christmas card design a year in advance and even a few made!

Thanks for stopping by...
May your Christmas be blessed.

Christmas Cards 2016

Happy Saturday!

This year for my Christmas cards, I made two variations of the same card.
I made 97 cards this year, about half of each design.
I cut the white panel with the star cut out on my Brother Scan N Cut.

I stamped the mini Nativity in the lower right hand corner.  
The stamps are from PaperTrey Ink - only $5 for a great mini nativity!

  
The inks are PTI Enchanted Evening and Dark Indigo.
Cardstock used is PTI White and Enchanted Evening.

The second card below, I used stamps from Taylored Expressions - Rejoice!


I added Metallic Silver Washi tape strip down the left side and also
to the blue cardstock behind the star, so it would be silver.

A great way to add a little sparkle. 

Inside Verse:


And she will bear a Son, and
you shall call His name Jesus, for He
will save His people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21



May the beautiful gift of Jesus
fill your home this holiday season
and throughout the coming year.
 Merry Christmas!

It was nice to make a handstamped card this year.  
The last couple years I used printed images for the sake of time.

Next week, I will have another Christmas card prototype,
which I hope to use next year.  This has never happened, imagine to
have a Christmas card design a year in advance and even a few made!
