You are Amazing

Here's another Father's Day card I gave out.
The gift was a clock for the pool area so I used a pool theme for the card.
Features stamps by Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp (and "you" die). 
The Bingo card and papers are from Simple Stories.

 The glass has a bit of Glossy Accents and Zig glitter pen.

Father's Day Card

Sharing a Father's Day Card I made for my Father-in-Law.

Used the CAS(E) this Sketch from challenge #32 for the design.

Card features stamps and "you" die by Simon Says Stamp.
The key is one from my FIL's stash that he gave me over a year ago for crafting.

Bikini Babe!

Back again with a birthday card for a 6 year old girl who LOVES purple!
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #31
The stamps are Lawn Fawn's "Swimsuit Season" and the papers 
are also by Lawn Fawn "The Bright Side"


Close up of the suit. 
 I used Hemptique string adhered with tape and glossy accents.
The pieces are popped with foam.
I added a bit of glitter with my new Zig Wink of Stella pen.
I started off paper piecing the ball and decided it was too painful so I pulled out the Copics!

Thanks for visiting,

Skylander birthday card

Another boy's birthday coming up.
We got him a couple Skylander characters so I wanted to use that for the theme of the card.
I found the image on the internet of "Crusher" which inspired my sentiment.
I went through my stash to find the words to stamp.

Happy Mail for Maddy featuring Sequins

Inspired by Let's Get Trendy Sequin challenge, I made this card for MADDY.

I used 3 Lawn Fawn sets: You've Got Mail, Fly Free, and Critters in the Burbs (grass)
I paper pieced all the stamped images.  I tried coloring the mailbox three times before I gave up.  My Copic Colors just didn't coordinate so it is all paper pieced.  
I used the sequins for the bird's happy flight path.

Thanks for visiting.

and Card for Maddy.  Please send a cheerful card if you have time!  
I tink the boys are pulling out the slip-n-slide this afternoon.
Let summer begin!

NEON hello card for Maddy

Decided to make a card for MADDY, a young teen battling AML, a type of Leukemia.
You can read about it HERE.

I am using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #30 and the
 inspiration from the Let's Get Trendy Challenge: NEON

Lacking neon, I browsed Michael's and found these adorable pre-made banners.  I used that as my start and added papers from my stash (Simple Stories, MME).
I bought the sequins last week in anticipation for that upcoming 
challenge so I used them here as flower centers. 

I felt the card needed a handmade element so I stamped the Hero Arts flower, 
colored it with matching Copics and cut them out.  
The first card will go to Maddy and the other is for my stash.

Seize the Bday: boy bday card

Needed another birthday card this weekend for a boy.
I printed out the new Seize the Birthday sketch 
and grabbed my "Swimsuit Season" stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  
We are giving the boy a slip-n-slide so I thought the suit themed card would be cute.
The pants were stamped and cut out.  
The water splashes were stamped directly on the paper,
 colored with Copics and then glittered. 

The frame was a late addition.
I bought them at Michaels.  
The other side was orange floral so I flipped it over and 
colored it with Copics to match the card.
Seems to work vs.having my suit floating on the card.  


Stamps:  Lawn Fawn
Papers:  Echo Park
Bingo:  Simple Stories
Other: Stickles, Recollections frame
