Birthday Boy

Birthday Boy



PTI
This was card for a 6 year old boy - I used my new PTI matching dies and stamps .I stamped the balloons and banner with the stamp set.Then  I actually used 2 out of  3 dies in the set and stuck them onto each other .I am really pleased with the effect - I think  its a very CAS card - what do you think ?
I am entering this card in CAS Colours & Sketches

Ummmm think it must have been a blue/green card day 

Birthday cards

Art Journey
 This first card is using my new Art Journey stamps and a new stencil (a script stencil can't remember the company - sorry ) .It was blended in toning distress inks and stamped in the same colours .I decided to add a Penny Black butterfly and fussy cut it .I did add Wink of Stella to all the butterflies which sadly didn't show up on the photo :(
I love the colour combo of this challenge so I am going to enter YNS colour challenge -click the link and go see

Anniversary Card

My best friend was celebrating 11 years of marriage -and this was the card I made .I love this die but cannot remember where i got it from .I die cut it twice so that I got 11 hearts - then i coloured the hearts and added glossy accents (what would we do without it ! ) Hopefully It arrived on time as I was on my way skiing when I posted it !

I love a Freebie

I bought some stamp sets from StampinUp and got a free set .This was the resulting card - I used my Misti to stamp the flowers by colouring the flowers in sections with distress Markers. Then I moved the colour "around " to give the flowers some depth ,This was a card for a lovely lady who was turning 93 years young !

new stamp set- More fresh cuts

Wow its been nearly a month since my last entry on my blog - thats because we have been skiing in Utah - and what a wonderful time we had.A friend came down from Pittsburgh to stay with us to ski -which was such a laugh ----- a whole year till we go again ....sigh.......
   Anyway back to cards - this was one of the many things that I have bought recently ! (Some are still to arrive - its all Tim Holtz fault ! )
This set is from Wplus9 - which I ordered after watching an amazing tutorial on YouTube here by Lydia Brookes
