A Manly Monday Card

So simple but a perfect card to have on hand for the men in your life.

I used the wonderful and well loved Brick Embossing folder to give the background simplicity but texture, the stamps are from Guy Greetings stamped in Chocolate Chip and Marina Mist. It's a great card I had saved in the "I must recreate file" and we did in my classes this month and we had to because everything on this card except the Vanilla card stock is retiring. You can still get it but not for long.

I don't know what is up with the quality of the colours in my pictures lately? Technology!

Yes another homage to the retiring stamp sets and colours. Butterfly Basics is another one of those stamp sets that has it all especially if you like vintage. It seems our butterflies are flying away.

Another very simply beautiful card. There are so many card makers out there that have made cards with this set that are similar so I'm not sure where I got the inspiration.

Manly Monday

I saw this card made by Bonnie O'Neil and just had to recreate it. I love the colours especially since it can be used for the men in my life.

I don't think the pictures do this card justice. My lighting was really bad.
The Z Fold card is a nice change but still only uses half a piece of card stock and fits into our envelopes plus there is still room to write your wishes. Don't you just love the Naturally Eclectic DSP? These are some of my favourite colours. 
I'm still in the reminiscing stage of the retiring products. The DSP, Emerald Envy and Soft Sky are all retiring but I'm enjoying them to the very last. 
Have a wonderful day.

Beautiful retiring stamp sets

Ahhh Garden in Bloom. This is so versatile and beautiful and I love that it is 2 and 3 step stamping.  Sweet Sugar Plum is an In Color that has been around for two years and is now leaving us and it goes perfectly with Pink Pirouette another retiring colour. I also used Smokey Slate and the wonderful Shimmery Ribbon in pink. The Stitched framelits work with almost any card. I saved this some time ago from another artist and just had to make it before the set is retired.

Sooo funny

I just think this set is so funny and I'll be sorry to see it go - "Birthday Wit" found in the Occasions Catalogue.

Janet showed me a card she made and I just had to make it with my class this past  month but there is so much more to be done with it. "NOTHING SAYS HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIKE A PIECE OF PAPER FOLDED IN HALF." "YOU'RE WELCOME." Now that's funny.

I had to use my absolutely favourite colour Tempting Turquoise and my second favourite colour Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.

Haha fat free, gluten free and the wonderful Picture Perfect Party designer series paper with the doughnuts on it.
