Night Cacti Reasons to Be Happy Card

This paper is from the DCVW pad from yesterday. I love the blues and teals, I think it looks like a night time desert scene (knowing that the cacti would not actually be in pots in the desert!).

Disclaimer: I have never been to the desert at night, my visual imagination may be WRONG.

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – DCWV No Prob LLama, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.

Magenta and Pool G-LLama-rous Card

LLamas on a magenta background??  YES, PLEASE!

Offspring3 went birthday shopping for me (with some additional funding from Offspring1), and she found this Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) pad that has llamas AND magenta foil. Who knew this existed???

I will probably hoard the pages with magenta foil while I come up with the PERFECT projects.  😉

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – DCWV No Prob Llama, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Pool Party, ink – VersaMark, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Classy Copper, organdy ribbon – Offray.

You Are Mermazing Card

I used this cutie on a birthday card I needed to send, and made a second card with a fun sentiment.

I stamped the rock first, then masked it off to blend the sky and water. The mermaid was colored with Copics and die cut, but then I fussy cut it with detail scissors right against the embossing. I colored the raw edge with a black marker. I used an embossing folder on the water part of the card.
