Masculine Cards

One thing that my customers ask for - that I am not very good at doing is making masculine cards. The girly ones are a lot more fun for me to make... but in a house with 3 boys I should definitely make them more.

I used these cards for fathers day this year (the airplane works perfect for my hubby - and was the main reason why I bought this stamp set!) but these cards work just as great for a birthday. I let my club girls choose last month which one they would like to make!

The stamp set and DSP are from the mini catalog. We just embossed the image with clear embossing powder and sponged around it (in a circular motion) to make it pop.

fyi - the ribbon is retired now...

Happy 4th

I know I know, almost a month late. But I promised my club girls I would post this!
I totally love this wheel - we used a versamark ink cartridge. The star brad below and the blue 4th above was colored using a fun technique. Add a drop or two to some crystal effects and mix it. Then either paint or dip your brad into the mixture to color! (I wiped the excess off the brad)

This layout we did for club I almost exactly cased from my friend Stacie. She doesn't have a open blog to link to or I would. We both post on a blog for our stampin group (which is AWESOME by the way). So thanks Stacie for the great idea!

Patriotic and Posies!

These are the cards we made at Stamp Club this month. I gave them the cardstock and let them choose which cards to make! Also everyone got 2 brads to add to their cards, we colored them with Crystal Effects and Ink Refills!
These next two cards were made with the Punched Posies hostess set that I LOVE!
We used so many of the brand spanking new colors on these cards: Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and the returning Wild Wasabi.
Here is a group shot of the cards.

It is so fun to see how different stamps (and a few colors) can change the whole look!

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

My sister has a Canopy that hangs over her daughter's crib and she wanted to put some flowers on it. So she bought some fabric and we cut out some big shot flowers and made some rosettes. I took a quick picture before she left (we didn't sew them together so we just layed them out on a cookie sheet lol.) I can't wait to see them in her room!
