I have three cards to share with you today! Two are Easter cards and one is a birthday card for my dear friend Donna's son who is turning two!
The first Easter card uses a Penny Black stamp and will be posted on their challenge blog as well as onto the Sweet Challenge Sunday Sketch Challenge blog since I used their sketch!
Here is the first Easter card...
The Fine Print: DP: DCWV Nursery Baby Boy pack; CS: The Paper Co.; Stamp: Penny Black (image), SU (Sentiment); Ink: Amuse black, Copic Markers and Sakura stardust Gelly Roller pen; Ribbon: Joann's (Twill Tape), Target (Orange dotted); Dew Drops: Stamping Bellas; Nestabilities; Flowers: unknown.
The sketch for this card coincidentally works for two different sketch challenges. The first one is from SCS for the Clean and Simple (CAS08) challenge for today but it is just flipped. The second sketch artist who gave us basically the same sketch challenge was Kazan (sketch 23) from 2 Sketches 4 You. I am not typically your CAS kind of girl, but it really is a challenge and that is what "challenges" are all about right?? I kept finding myself wanting to add more layers and embellishments. It also uses the Timeless Tuesdays Challenge on the Flourishes blog which was to use embossing. I added the buttons by embossing them with my Cuttlebug.
I liked how this one came out and will be giving it to an awesome friend of mine who lives in NY. Her name is Kim; and as far as chicks go, we have always stuck together and have helped each other through some difficult times! (The latest thing she did for me was help me get through my wedding day by bringing me a bottle of wine to drink while I was getting my hair done... she really knew what I needed at that moment! LOL!)
Ok, I digressed!!! Here is the card...
The Fine Print: DP: MM Flower Patch paper pack; CS: Georgia Pacific; Stamps: Flourishes; Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug (Just My Type); Button: unknown; Circle Punch: EK Success; Nestabilities; Ink: Amuse and Copics.
Finally the last card I made is the Birthday card! Isn't it fun to create things for little kids? You get to play with adorable images and also bright colors that we often don't get to use.
The Fine Print: CS: The Paper Co.; RP: DCWV Paper Stack; Stamps: CC Designs (Image from It's My Birthday) and Penny Black (Sentiment); Ink: Amuse, Copics, Souffle and SU; Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug; Nestabilities.
Here is a close-up of the double embossing! Kind of cool huh?
