Speedy Recovery

Hello again,

I am just cleaning up my desk top and saw these photos that I meant to post a couple of weeks ago. This is a get well card for a dear colleague who had surgery. Decided to do a tri-fold card so that the staff had lots of place to sign. Love this little turtle and those adorable bandaids from the Lawn Fawn set On the Mend. I have had this set for awhile and haven't had time to ink it up. This was such a fun card to make and the recipient was thrilled.

Hard to get a good picture with the added shine and sparkle, but I hope you can see it in the above view.

Open one side . . . 

Fully open!

Wheelie Birthday

Hello Blogland,

I am popping in with a super quick post. I can't seem to find time to make many things these days, let alone get them posted. The following is a card for my dad's birthday tomorrow. I got out my copics and colored my heart out. The stamp is one I hadn't inked up yet from AI (Art Impressions). Love the action wobbler . . . if you haven't tried these yet . . . so fun! I added some Lawn Fawn Balloon Die Cuts and some mini silver star confetti to finish the front. (Of course the balloons have Spectrum Noir shimmer, coated with glossy accents)

Of course I had to add a matching envelope!

Check out the wobble in the clip below:


I added some Lawn Fawn balloon dies and a Simon Says Stamp birthday greeting to the inside to finish it off.

I have added this to instagram to participate in Kathy Racoosin's current 30 day coloring challenge. This was for day 12. If you have never been to her blog, click on her name above to visit. She is uber talented.

I have also added this into the Stampin' Royalty Masculine Challenge - SR#353

Thanks for stopping in.

You're Fintastic Trio

Hello everyone,

It is a beautiful sunny day here today! A perfect day to do some midday coloring to get out of the heat for a little while. I saw this adorable Lawn Fawn card the other day by Elise using the Lawn Fawn Fintastic Friends stamp set. I had no thinking power today so I basically copied her design with very little variation. When all was said and done I ended up with 3 super cute cards. Thanks for the idea Elise!

First up here is Elise's card:

After stamping and die cutting these sweet images, I colored them in a rainbow of sweet colors using my copic markers. I used my colorless blender to give some of those sweet fish some tone on tone polka dots. The bubbles were stamped in a variety of inks from Simon Says Stamp, Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts. On the first card I used the Lawn Fawn Rectangle stitched die to cut out my panel. At the end all fish were of course colored with my clear Wink of Stella marker to give them a pretty shimmer. 

Now for my 3 cards:

Just can't get enough of those cutie pie rainbow fish!

MFT Funky Flowers

Hi there,

I am doing a quick post today to share a retirement card for a dear colleague featuring the MFT Funky Flowers. There are so many amazing examples out there using this stamp set and I can't wait to play with it some more. I was inspired by a number of those cards and used a blend of those ideas to come up with my card. I also used the Hero Arts Pinstripe background stamp and a Mama Elephant stamp set called Make a Wish for the greeting on the outside of the card. On the inside of the card I used the Sending and Wishing stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I used copic markers to color in the flowers and leaves.

Here is the inside. I made it into a tri-fold so there was room for all of our staff to sign.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenge:

Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

Have a blessed day,

Fantastic Dad!

Hello everyone,

I'm popping in to wish my dad a Happy Father's Day and share the card I made for him. I used Lawn Fawn and Simon Says stamp products for the die cutting and stamping. I love the Lawn Fawn Puns Galore Stamps and Matching dies and finally got to use this set. I combined that with stitched rectangles and frames for the card front. On the inside I actually used a Simon Says Stamp Set called Mothers Day Zingers. These sayings really make me laugh.

I would like to enter my card in the Paper Player's Challenge. It is a CAS Celebration challenge to celebrate their 300th!

That's all for today!
