Wise Old Owl

I have a very quick card for you today that I made for an older man's birthday.

This was such a quick and easy card to make!  Sometimes I love that kind of card and other times I want to spend time coloring and cutting and making it the way I picture it in my head.

Supply list:
Stamp - Sketched owl by Stampabilities
Card Stock - GinaK Designs pure luxury - chocolate brown and ivory
Pattern Paper - Mirabelle by Paper Studio

Fleur Anya

Happy Friday Everyone!

My girls had a 4 day weekend last week and I enjoyed some fun family time with them.  Tonight we are hosting our youth group girls for a sleepover and spa night, along with some Biblical teaching on modesty and purity.  Then next week I have a women's retreat that I am organizing.  So you can see these past couple of weeks have been packed full of some things.  I have been working on a couple of cards but have not finished them yet, but I do have some that I have not posted yet so I will share those in the next week.

So for today I have a fun little lady to share with you:
Isn't she a pretty one.  I won this stamp set and even though it is not a style I would normally buy, I think she is great and I have thought of several little girls who would love a card with her on it.  For her dress I  paper pieced with a pretty scrap of paper I had on my crafting table.  Then I designed the card and colors around that.

Supply list:
Stamp - Fleur Anya from the Greeting Farm
Copic Markers - E51, Y02, Y06, RV24, 100
Sakura pen - Pink Star
The background paper was another piece of scrap that was on my desk.

Happy Valentine's Day

Hope every one has a wonderful day!

Today I have a birthday card for you:

For the flowers on this card I used 3 techniques:  First I  stamped the flowers in blue ink, then I did the rock-n-roll technique around the edges add the darker blue ink, and I finished each flower by thumping the center with a dark brown marker. 

The center panel is layered on chocolate brown cardstock then onto a nice blue.

Stamps used are from GinaK designs:  Pressed flowers and mountain wilderness (greeting).  Cardstock is from SU and GinaK designs.
