Razzle Berry and Pool Party Spectacular Card

I was wishing for summer weather and fun sunglasses when I made this!

I cut 3 pairs of glasses with the My Favorite Things die (On A Whim, Razzle Berry, Basic Black) and glued them together (leaving one layer off the lenses). I dotted a bit of Wink of Stella into the tiny cutouts on the cat eye corners for some shimmer.

Basic Black, Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black,  ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – My Favorite Things, embossing folder Stampin’ Up! (Sizzix).

Viking Valentine Card

Offspring3 found this stamp for my birthday…with one of the neighbor’s kids in mind. The oldest neighbor kiddo is 5, and she is a chatterbox. She has been a viking the past 2 Halloweens, and she even gets her Daddy to dress up, too.

I made dots with my Copic markers for the ground – I was thinking rocky, dirty terrain, with a little ice/snow mixed in.

Supplies: Stamp – Avery Elle, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Red Glitter, inks – Copic B0000, C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, , E00, E15, E23, E41, E53, E57, N4, N7, W3, W7, T3, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Hickory Smoke, Tumbled Glass, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (hearts), stencil – Inky Antics, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, twine – MarkerPop.

Flower Basket Bike Birthday Card

This is for my longest friend…she is not by age my oldest friend, but I have known her the longest. She moved into our neighborhood when I was in 4th grade (she was in 5th). My family moved to another state when I was in 5th grade. My longest friend and I have kept in touch all of these years by letter and now e-mail, Facebook, and the occasional phone call. I do treasure her, and I really hope that I have conveyed that sentiment over the years!

Supplies: Stamps – Avocado Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Razzle Berry, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, Vintage Sepia, Wink of Stella clear, watercolors – Sakura Koi, die – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), flowers – Prima, sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, embossing powders – Ranger clear, Stampin’ Up!
