Patriotic Rose With Balloon

I created this patriotic card using Rose With Balloon from CC Designs.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens.


 I added blue jean stickles to her belt, headband and socks and then added christmas red stickles to her skirt and heart on her headband. For the embossing I used a star embossing folder from The Paper Studio and the punching is a star border punch from EK Success.  The stars are glitter buttons and I layered a red ribbon onto a white satin ribbon and made a bow from the white satin ribbon.

Game On Edwin

This is my son Thomas.  He just turned 17 on Wednesday but we will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow. 



He is a big gamer and the one game that he and I play together is Super Mario Kart.  So I thought that this image, Game On Edwin, from Magnolia Stamps was the perfect image to create his birthday card with. I colored it using Spectrum Noir Pens.

The sketch I used is from Sketchy Colors.

 

I layered card stock, die cut stars, embossing and jellies to finish off the front of my card. The sentiment I used is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Wild and Crazy Guys rubber stamp set.

Dandy Lion Shaker Card

Hi everyone! I created this card for the "try something new" challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I decided to attempt to make my very first shaker card.  The image I used is Dandy Lion from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I colored her using Spectrum Noir pens and added diamond stickles.

 Here is  a close up of the shaker part of my card. I added sassy silver sparkles and terrific turquoise sparkles from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  I also added silver and aqua glitter and stars punched from citrus teal card stock.

DAD

Hi again!  My dad is my hero.  He was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease a few years ago and recently went through brain surgery to help lessen his symptoms. But even through this trial he has been a rock for our entire family and is there when we need him. My dad leads the prayer during our Sunday Morning Service every Sunday (even when he isn't feeling his best).  I am very proud to call him my dad.  I've added a photo of my parents below.


This is the card I created for my dad using an image from the Wild And Crazy Guys rubber stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

The sketch I used is from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge.
I layered card stock, embossing and punching to finish the front of my card.
