March Stamping Six

This is the card I made for one of my Stamping Six Gatherings way back in March.

We started with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar and stamped it with the new Wood background using Baked Bown Sugar Ink.  We used some Retro Fresh This and That Washi Tape on the left corner.  We made the tag using the Chalk Talk stamp set and some Coastal Cabana ink. We then used the Chalk Talk Framelits to cut out the tag. We the stamped the tag again with Tangerine Tango and cut out the "something" banner and glued it on the tag. In the corners we used a needle to add a string of
linen thread. We then added a pewter brad and hung our tag over the brad. We used some foam squares to attach the tag and finished it off with some ribbon and a button.

A Chic Birthday

Happy Birthday Jenny!

I made this card for my sister-in-law. I used a old stamp set from Stampin' Up. I then paper pieced her pants and bag. I then coloured the rest of her with my copies. The pattern paper is from the new Designer Series Paper "Flowerpot". The paper flower are from my stash of Flowers and the ribbon is Daffodil Delight Tafetta ribbon that has now been discontinued.

Sawyer's 1st Birthday!

Happy 1st Birthday to my nephew Sawyer!

I made this card for my nephews first birthday. His middle name is fox and thanks to it being one of the most popular animals this last year it has been turning up on everything. I have been collecting some pretty cute stamp sets with foxes in them. This one is from CTMH, it was the stamp of the month this past January. This little fox is usually holding a flower but that just wouldn't work for this card so I eliminated it before I stamped him. Then I covered up the little bit that I couldn't get rid of with a present. I then stamped the heart from the same stamp set cut off the bumps and turned it into a hat. I then added a mini pom pom to the top. All of the patter paper is from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack in the new Stampin' Up catalogue. To finish off the card I used three CTMH white enamel stars and coloured them with a copic to match the card base colour.

Trailer Park Birthday

Well camping season has almost come to a end and the school bells are about to start ringing. It almost means that it is time to start getting back to all our after school activities and scrapbooking classes. Yeah!

Now onto the card ...

I made this card for my father-in-laws birthday. They camp at a trailer park all summer and on his birthday we always drive out to see them there. I was really on the ball this week and prepped my card so that I could bring it out to my camp to finish. So I was really in the camping spirit while I was making the card.  I made the background myself using some post it notes and a brayer. I then coloured the trailers with my copics and popped them up with some 3D foam squares. The trailers and the clouds are both from the CTMH "Happy Camper" stamp set. The banner in between the trailers is made with some baker's twine and washi tape for the little pennants. I finished it off with some more woodgrain washi tape and some green ribbon.
