Galaxy

This weekend, the Color Bursts and white paint created this galaxy background.  It amazes me to see the Color Burst in action spreading across the paper.  When you add colors you never know what the finished look will be.

The space ship was colored with Copic markers.

I Do

Something old, something new...that would be this stamp from So Suzy Stamps.  I was so excited to ink it up as my son will be getting married and I had a card exchange that I needed to make cards for.

These cards with the gold inlay and the die cut edge are from Michaels and they add such a formal and elegant base for this card.

Christmas in July

Christmas in July is perfect to use this cute snowman stamp!  I am making some cards to sent off to Send A Smile 4 Kids.  This card is more masculine because I wanted the boys to have a selection to pick from.

The snowman is covered with a sparkle gel pen to add some sparkle!

For The Birds

My grandson, Riley, loves to feed the birds.  He checks daily to see if the feeder is empty.  I decided to make him a birdfeeder, which in itself, was a task.  It took a village to make this birdfeeder...but that is what you do for your grandchildren!!  Now it is ready to send to him and I wanted to include some cash for bird seed and some Pokeman cards.   It is his 6th birthday too.

This is what I made to hold the cash and cards.  I took an envelope and folded the edges to the center.  Then, the flap folds down.



The back of the envelope was decorated...the more birds to celebrate, the merrier!


The big bird's wings had plaid paper on them.  The envelope was also lined with plaid paper.



Now, to box this up and send it off!  Happy Birthday Riley...may the birds frequent your feeder and stop to wish you happy birthday!!

PinaColada

It's five o'clock somewhere right?  What do you do with a pineapple die cut?...you emboss it pirates gold embossing powder and make it sparkle!!

Blending Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the background.creates the bottom layer.  Then I misted a background stamp and placed it on to texture the paper a little.  Background stamping was done in Black Soot Distress ink.  Going through my stamps, I found every word I needed to create the sentiment...it was pretty close though!!





Thanks for stopping by and be like a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet inside!!
