Another masculine birthday card for a co-worker using Jersey Shore DSP again. It is amazing how different the 3 cards look even though the same designer paper was used on each one. This card could become a very feminine card by changing the colors, the designer paper and possibly using a fancier sentiment. I like all the elements and how each one flows into the other.
This was the card I created for my son's birthday. I've been wanting to create a card using Gorgeous Grunge and Off the Grid since I think they coordinate so well together. It is hard to tell from the photo but the letters H & B were stamped in versa mark ink and embossed with black embossing powder. I was a little hesitant to use real red ink with the splatter stamp (looks a little to close to blood splatter) but red is one of my son's favorite colors. I really like how this card turned out and I can't wait to make more cards using these sets.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Off the Grid, Up, Up & Away, Letterpress Alphabet Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Black Ink: Real Red, Black, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Versa Mark Accessories: Black Embossing Powder, Dimensionals
This card was created for a co-worker and is a CASE of a card I created in January. You can see that card here. I like both cards but they are so different looking because of the color choices. This card is bright and vibrant compared to the one I created in January.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Punch Bunch Paper: Whisper White, Brilliant Blue, Jersey Shore DSP Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Versa Mark Accessories: Argyle Embossing Folder, Circle Nestabilities Dies, Clear Embossing Powder, Dew Drops, Crystal Effects, Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals
This card was inspired by a card created by Connie Collins which you can see here. I made a few changes but kept the same basic layout. To create the cupcake I used the cupcake builder punch and then used a paper crimper for the cupcake base. The beads were adhered with crystal effects from the discontinued brights beads. The crocheted lace border and the glitter paper are non-SU products.
Supplies Used: Paper: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush, Yoyo Yellow, DCWV White Glitter Accessories: Dots Embossing Folder, Gingham Garden Washi Tape, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Cupcake Builder Punch, Paper Crimper, White Bakers Twine, Crochet Lace, Brights Beads, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals
This card was for my nephew who turned 15 this year. I kept the card clean and simple and used Syracuse University colors to bring it all together. To line up the birthday sentiment I used a my grid paper and a stamp-a-ma-jig. The birthday sentiment measured approximately 1/4" high so I started in the center of my 2 3/4" square and spaced the sentiments 1/4" apart.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Best Dad Ever Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, Jersey Shore DSP Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue Accessories: Pennant Builder Punch, Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, Stamp-a-ma-jig, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals
This is the second monochromatic card I created for the August 2013 Christmas card challenge. I stayed with my favorite color and used green but for this card I used old olive. This card looks very clean and simple but the challenge was lining up all of the medallions and in order to achieve this I used a stamp-a-ma-jig. I love the elegant look of this card.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Christmas Lodge Paper: Very Vanilla, Old Olive Ink: Old Olive Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Pearls
The August 2013 Christmas card challenge was to create a monochromatic card and I decided to use my favorite color...green. I chose to use the color certainly celery, which was one of the colors that was discontinued when Stampin' Up did a color refresh for the 2013-2014 catalog. This ended up being a very clean and simple card.
My daughter asked me to make a card for a shower that she was attending. She said the bride-to-be was having baby's breath in mason jars for the table centerpieces and this was the card I created for her to give with the gift. The shower was a couple of weeks ago and I remembered that I hadn't posted the card yet.

How about some punch art! My great-nephew turned 2 and had a SpongeBob Square Pants themed birthday party and I couldn't resist the challenge to create a card to go with the theme. There are several versions of punch art SpongeBob cards and this is my version. Actually, this was a fairly easy card to create you just need circle punches.
