My Daughter is a Steeler Fan

My Daughter is a Steeler Fan and she also loves shoes!  I created this fun card for her with the Black & Yellow that she loves!

I used Daffodil Delight for the base of the card and the houndstooth is from Modern Medley DSP.  I used Black CS run trough Bigz Tasteful Trim Die.  She loved it.  I also cut the little heart in Daffodil Delight CS and sponged with black ink.  I used one of the cute clips elements (bird) to attach the heart to the front. The shoe is a current Hostess Set called Making Point in the Celebrate the Everyday Catalog. I stamped the shoe on Daffodil Delight CS and cut out the yellow part. I added Crystal Effects to the black part of the shoe.  I took it to her on Thursday this week, she loved it!

Fence Card

This is my CASE from Patty Bennett. Love her little fence card and she has a video on her blog, check it out here.  Too cute!

I used the Tag Punch for my pot along with the Word Window Punch.  I cut some flowers from the Sweet Sorbet DSP using the Petite Petals Punch and the long stemmed ones in the background I just used Paper Snips and "fussy cut" those out. The fence is from the Hardwood Stamp and the pickets are cut and the tops punched with the Chevron Punch.  A little sponging, added some Candy Dots and punched out a butterfly using my Butterfly Punch and adding some White Bakers Twine.  The clouds were cut using Word Bubbles Framelits.  The saying is from the stamp set Six Sided Sampler.  It was really fun to make and thanks for sharing all the instructions Patty!

Boss' Birthday Card

My Boss at my "regular job" is having a birthday this week-end, here's the card I created for him.

I created the background paper using First Edition Specialty DSP, crumpled and sponged.  The idea came from stampTV here.  The little bird and Happy Birthday Wishes is from the Simply Sketched stamp set.  I used Chocolate Chip Ink and CS along with Bashful Blue CS.  I added some Chevron Ribbon and Bakers Twine, along with a Designer Naturals Button.  I was going for the "masculine look", think I got it!

My Grandson's Card for 6th Grade Camp

I created a card for my Grandson while he's at 6th Grade Camp next week:

I used a Black card base.  The Raccoon and Trees are from the Life in The Forest Stamp Set and the word "Memories" is from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set.  The background is Daffodil Delight CS.  I cut out a moon with the 1" Circle Punch using Tangerine Tango CS.  I stamped the raccoon on Basic Gray CS and added his eyes back in and used a white gel pen to make them show up.  I stamped the trees onto Gumball Green CS and "fussy-cut" them and the raccoon out.  I used a piece of white Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon across a strip of Black CS on the front.  I did a little sponging around the moon.  He leaves in the morning and will be gone all week. I remember my 6th Grade Camp, hope he has as much as I did.  He's so excited!
