Cheeky boy ???

EDIT:  I was not totally happy with this card so did some adjustments and have the before and after ( above) both posted here for you to view.  Cheeky Boy is a Penny Johnson stamp from Stampavie.  For the purpose of this card I made it a cute little girl rather than a boy as the stamp lends to either gender.  This was cut using a Spellbinder curved rectangle die and distressed with Antique Linen.  Using a variety of Copic Markers to color the image a feeling of Spring appears.  The paper is from the Imaginisce 6 x 6 Enchanted pad.  The flowers are from my stash and are finished of with a pearl that I have colored for the center.  The sentiment is from my stash as well.  A really simple, fun to color card.  Hope you enjoy.

Hoppy Birthday

This card is made using Technique Tuesday's "Ribbit" stamp.  Isn't this little frog just the cutest.  He was stamped using Memento Pear Tart and his eyes were colored with a Copic black.  A May Arts ribbon and Amuse pearls were colored with Copic YG 95.  The image was cut with a Spellbinder Labels 12.  Both front and back of the DP paper by My Minds Eye "Stella and Rose" were used. A little Distress Antique Linen was used to dirty up the image paper.  What a simple card.  Check this and many other new Technique Tuesday Stamps out at Fond Memories in Walnut Grove.  Hope you enjoy.

Bird House Birthday

Well this is an envelope and a card too.  This can be used as a gift card holder or for a small gift item.  The outside is a 5.5 x 8.5 scored at 2 and 6 then folded.  Scor Tape was used on the edges of the 2.5 fold to create the envelope.  The design paper is Quite Contrary from My Minds Eye.  Say it with bling by want 2 scrap was put on the outside.  I stamped the border from Bird Houses from JustRite on white and mounted it on the pink from the backside of the DP.  This was cut with the large scallop circles from Spellbinders.  The leaves were colored with Copic Markers and Pearl Ink from Viva finished off the border.  The Birdhouse was stamped on white and colored with Copic Markers and it too was mounted on the backside and cut and mounted the same as the border. I did use some Antique Linen Distress Ink on the scalloped paper.   The inside of the card ( right) was stamped Happy Birthday from the JustRite  "Baroque Nested Frames and Occasions.  So we have a card and an envelope all in one and I am putting it in the JustRite Challenge  050 Spring or Birthday Gift or Envelope.  Hope you enjoy.

Birthday Greetings

JustRite  Friday Challenge 050: Spring or Birthday Gift or Envelope is the current challenge. Scor-Pal is one of the sponsors on this. I created a card which is also being entered in Joan's Garden who is sponsoring a JustRite challenge and the design if for the Mojo Monday 181 challenge.

I feel in most cases that my cards are a gift by themselves, but this one also has an envelope to accompany it.  I decided to decorate the front of the envelope as well.  Of course this is not a card that will go into the mail.  The card and envelope were created with My Mind's Eye paper "Stella and Rose".  The flower and brad are from the same line.  The pearls are from Amuse.  I used a Scor-Pal for the fold on the card and to create the pointed flap envelope.  A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the border on the angled paper and on the envelope.    I used the JustRite set "You Inspire Me for the card and stamped "Just for You" on the envelope from the Fancy Labels set.
