I had fun making this birthday card for Mr. Kiss.
After a good rummage through my stash, I decided on this reindeer stamp.
A reindeer is not just for Christmas... lol*
The hardest part of this card was the little deer jumper. There's no separate die for it, so I had to stamp it, fussy cut it, and add the detail on with a fine, black pen. I also added my dh's initial.
I have had another rummage in my stash today, and not only discovered a neglected stamp set,
but also an unused boat die.
I think they were from when I first began card making -
you know - when dinosaurs still roamed the earth!!!
Here's my card.
The wave design is from the stamp set I found and I don't think it's ever been inked up before.
I used pearlescent ink on it - which gives a pretty shimmer IRL.
I die cut the boat, paper piecing the colours onto a white base.
I was in a rush to finish, so I messed up a couple of times. More haste less speed!!
1. The little separate banners are in the wrong order.
2. I stamped the sentiment onto the card at first and completely botched it, so it had to be covered up!
Supplies. Hero Arts border stamp. ProcoCraft boat die. Brilliance ink, pearlescent sky blue. Memento ink, dandelion Banner die was a magazine freebie. Sequins and gems. Sentiment Stamp, Personal Impressions.
I have just about recovered from the weekend's festivities.
Everyone had a great time - fuelled by copious quantities of Margaritas!
Here's the card I made for my daughter, Maria.
This little mouse stamp is one that I often overlook, because it's so small,
but it was just perfect here to complement my huge bow.
I die cut the 25, and added a piece of gliter paper behind it.
I don't have any gold sequins, so I had to get creative with making my own. I used the same gold glitter paper and a standard hole punch for the large ones, and a button punch for the small ones (they were the little pieces from the centre holes, that you would usually discard).
Hey there, hope you are all well.
I am busy making plans for my eldest daughter, Maria's, birthday.
She will be 25 on Saturday.
I am in charge of the party - I have been stringing up fairy lights all afternoon -
the food and the drink - so I have lists everywhere :-)
I just had time to squeeze in a quick make - hope it makes you smile.
The cue card for this week's CASology is 'Joke' and Cardz for Guyz wants you to 'make them laugh' -
so I hope this fits the bill. Pop over to those challenges if you want a giggle*
I coloured my image with Copics and made up the sentiment on my comp.
