Masculine Card with the Le"men" Zest stamp set

It seems everyone always needs ideas for masculine cards. I know I always do. They are somehow harder to create than the fancy girly girl, flowery, pink and pretty cards we create for our girl friends.

I thought the perfect colors for a masculine birthday card would be the new lemon lime twist and of course, basic black and naturally I had to use the Lemon Zest stamp set- only its a lime this time.

I did use a little bit of the new Lemon Lime Ombre ribbon- but you could leave that off if you wanted to.

Here's a close up. If you look really close you can see the new Garden Trellis emboss folder on the basic black cardstock. Its the same folder I used on the Coffee Cafe card that I posted last week. Its so cool- and can be used for masculine cards too.

Here's a little variation of the same card. I used the Layered Leaves emboss folder on the basic black cardstock for this one.

Either design would make a great birthday card for the great guys in your life. Hey, it could even make a great birthday card for the girls as well!

Thanks for taking a peek at my blog today.

Until the next time...

Stampin Up Daisy Delight

We made a thank you card at my last Card Class with the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy Punch.

Everyone loved this set so much, that most everyone bought it that night.

It helps that the Delightful Daisy Designer Paper is so darling with the soft and pretty colors throughout the 12 sheets of double sided paper.

I used wisteria wonder and so saffron cardstock and inks as well as Delightful Daisy designer series paper.

The new Gold Faceted Gems look awesome with this flower. They also come in clear.

Hope you like it as much as my card class did!

The Little Mermaid?

I almost didn't order this stamp set, even though I liked it and have been wanting a mermaid stamp set.

I wasn't sure how I would make it look as good as it should. But, I came up with an idea and I think it turned out just right!

This one was embossed with copper emboss powder and framed with copper foil paper. The card color is wisteria wonder. I colored it in with an aqua painter and drops of re-inkers.

The water color paper is perfect for the amount of water I used to water color the background and the mermaid.

Here I used a different color card- soft sky and pool party. I think I like these colors even better. I also used silver emboss powder and silver foil paper for one of the mermaids.

This is the silver up close. Got to love those Iridescent Sequin Assortment. They remind me of bubbles!

All the little mermaids in a row.

My Swap Pile

So, remember the Lemon Zest card that I posted the other day? The one that I made for the Stampin' Up Advisory Board Alumni swap?

Well, I wanted to share the other swaps from the other girls, with you.

So here's the whole kit and kaboodle!

These ladies make the most beautiful cards. If you are attending any of my classes or workshops any time soon, I'll have these all on display for you to oogle over.

Thanks for checking in- I'm probably in New York watching the 4th of July fireworks or in China walking on the Great Wall right now... ;)

Until the next time...
