Phil's birthday card

This Wednesday was my boyfriend Phil's birthday. This is the card I made for him. I find it challenging to make masculine cards, but I think this one was alright. :)


I thought grey, white and a nice sea blue would work well.

Baby card

I had a very productive day today - made 5 cards!! This is one of them. I wanted soooo badly to try out my new Forest Friends but haven't had a chance till now.

So I was also trying out sponge daubing backgrounds for the first time. Could be better... but not bad for a first try, I think. I also shaded in his little face and body with a blender pen and the chocolate chip pastel.


Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery. Blue ink is not SU. Many Marvelous Markers - Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Stamps: Forest Friends, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Other: 5/8" Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon (Sale-a-bration 09), sponge dauber, blender pen, Stampin' Pastels

A very pink birthday!

It was a coworker's 50th birthday this week and she LOVES pink. So this is the card I made for her along with some Beautiful Butterflies magnets. (Our office walls and doors are metal, so we love magnets!)

Card:
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Whisper White, Regal Rose
Ink: Basic Grey, Versamark, Many Marvelour Markers: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Basic Black, Green Galore
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/2" circle is not SU
Stamps: Cool Cat (retired), Birthdays Count (inside card)
Other: Walk in the Park DSP, Big Shot, Top Note die, Pink ribbon and rhinestones are not SU.

Butterfly magnets:
Walk in the Park DSP
Big Shot
Beautiful Butterflies die
Adhesive rhinestones are not SU
Adhesive magnet sheet

Magnet directions: Adhesive magnet sheets come 6" x 9". Pre-cut a piece of the pink DSP to that size and adhered it to the adhesive side of the magnet sheet. The magnet sheet is fairly thin and can be folded over on the one end to make the larger butterflies that are only half on the die. Sandwich die and magnet sheet between the two cutting pads. Run through the Big Shot. You will end up with 4 butterfly magnets with the DSP on one side. The two that were folded in the middle will have fold marks. I covered them up using adhesive rhinestones.

Enjoy!
