Canvas Art Card

This card I made for my niece who is turning 13 and is really great at Art. I wanted to make a card that represented some art work. I used the ribbon on the edge of the card to make it look like it was a frame on the "canvas". My DH helped me with the concept since he too is artistic and then once I had the idea it all came together very quickly.

Base 5.5 x 4.25
Brown ribbon / green rhinestone
Stamps: Butterfly from Anna Griffin Flora Collection
Inks: Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in colors Iced Spruce, Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers on the "Art"
Shaded Lilac: "You Color my World" from the Simply Everything -Pink by Design stamp
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black / Cocoa Rich
Pink by Design Stamps: 1,3,th are from the High Shool set
Happy Birthday from the Mini Wrapper
I also used my markers to color in the art

Father's Day Twist

I did this project for the Stuck on U Sketches! What to give a man that has everything? I decided to go simple since the economy is not easy on the pocket. I took a shaving gel and wrapped it with a paper towel roll, for support. Now I can wrap scrap paper around it to decorate.
My background paper cut at 8" high and 7" wide to wrap around the gel. The tie was cut from "Simply Charmed" cart at 7" high 2.50" wide.I inked the sides is the tie with memento rosebud and tuxedo black for the sentiments. I used Pink by Design sentiments: real men wear pink is from just 4 men, the happy came from just for u (I covered the birthday to) and the day came from giant greetings (this time I covered the words happy birth) and the I wrote in the word Father's.

Valentine's Day Card

Here is a simple little card that I made for my son's pre-school class. I made them to look like the ones they sell, an image in the front and on the back I just wrote To and From. For the front I used a stamp set that I was given from recollections, sentiment "friends". I used my cuttlebug to cut out the heart shape with a cuttlebug die that has 3 hearts together all with in each other. I used a peachy keen stamp -all characters- for the inside of the hearts and then colored the eyes with white gel pen. My son helped me put the cards and candy inside the little bags that I found at the dollar store. Hope you have a loving filled day.
