From The Heart

The Splitcoaststampers' Inspiration Challenge 321 yesterday was "Everything Turquoise". I loved the simplicity of the inspiration I chose because it allowed me to make a quick and simple card. All supplies are from Stampin' Up! I used Tempting Turquoise and Early Espresso Cardstock, Branch Out and Water Color Trio Stamp Sets, Scallop Border Punch, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, and a White Gel Pen to add the birds over the tree.

Happy Birthday

Final card in this group and a picture of the three cards together. If I have enough DSP left, I will probably use it to make one last card tomorrow. Again, I used "For Father" stampset; Mocha Morning DSP; Very Vanilla & Soft Suede Card Stock; Soft Suede & Crumb Cake Inks.

Happy Birthday

Here is my second card using Stampin' Up!'s "For Father" stamp set and more of the Mocha Morning DSP. I will probably keep making masculine cards with the scraps until the scraps are all used up...

Another card tomorrow.

Birthday Wishes

DH's brother's birthday is next week and he asked me if I would make him a card. Thing is, he has three brothers and I did not want to make one without making a card for the other two. Masculine cards are hard to design so I visited Mary Fish's gallery and got inspired by her 'Thrilla in Vanilla' card and decided to case it. I changed the sentiment, the stamp, added DSP and matted my image panel.

After making this card, I used the same image stamp, card stock, ink and DSP for the other two cards and changed the card sketch for both. Here is the first card. I will post cards two and three within the next few days.

Mocha Morning DSP; Very Vanilla & Soft Suede Card Stock; Soft Suede, Crumb Cake & Basic Black Ink; For Father & Happiest Birthday Wishes Stamp Set (Hostess).
