Any Occasion...

My cyber friend sent me a card very similar to this one and I had to CASE it. It will be one of our Stamp A Stack cards in June!

Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper is the face of this card. Whisper White the base and I added a layer of Peek A Boo Peach for the saying. The butterfly was punched and rhinestones added. I did add 3 acrylic embellishments.

Great Birthday card, Sympathy card, Friendship card - etc. leaving enough room on the inside for a hand-written note.

Until next time!

Masculine any occasion!

This card can be almost for any sentiment or occasion. The Night of Navy card stock is the base with a Tranquil Tide mat. then another mat for the theme is Very Vanilla.

I cut the boots from the set Country Livin'. The boots were colored lightly with the new Colored Pencils by Stampin Up. They are a real improvement over the ones that retired several years ago.

I rolled up a bit of twine to look like a rope hanging onto the boot. A few brads and some washi tape accented for the finishing touches.

Until next time!

Happy Birthday

Great masculine card for birthdays, get well, thinking of you, etc. The base is Marina Mist (retiring) and the mat is Early Expresso with a Very Vanilla mat for stamping. I used Soft Sky stamped with Hardwood for a neat background.

I used Timeless Textures to stamps the background using the Marina Mist and Early Expresso Inks. The sentiment is Early Expresso HB Framelit. This will be one of our June Stamp A Stack cards just in time for Father's Day too!

Anyone would love receiving this card.

Until next time!

Happy Birthday to my Hubby

Tomorrow is Harry's birthday and I made him this John Wayne card since he is 'crazy' about Westerns.

This was inspired (more than you'll realize) by my NC Cyber friend, Regina! I know he will love it. I do think we have stopped all birthdays.

Until next time!

Happy Retirement

I saw a similar card on Pinterest and it was so cute, had to CASE it. I used Tip Top Taupe for the base with Very Vanilla inside. There is plenty of room for a sentiment or personal note.

The chair is Soft Suede from the Colorful Seasons collection. The leaves are from the same set of Framelits. The oval is the second largest Stitched Ovals with a tree stamped on the inside.

Until next time!

Double Z-Fold Card

Great masculine card for birthday, retirement, father's day - many possibilities.

I used retiring paper and stamps but that's ok too. I lined an envelope to match. This card was inspired by  my cyber friend, Regina! What a great card idea.

Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'

Guitar Wishes

This was made using the guitar from a Sale A Bration set that of course has retired. The Just a Note is from a 2001 stamp set but still comes in handy.

The base is 4.25 x 5.50 Tip Top Taupe (retired) and the card is cut 4 x 10.5 and folded in the middle and attached to the Taupe Base. I ran it thru the Embossing Folder and I think it was water instead of tree bark but looks ok anyway. I added the laser cut leaves for accent.

Until next time!
