Dotty Angles

I was playing with the Dotty Angles stamp set a little bit on these fun boy birthday cards.  The images make a fun and quick background for both cards or scrapbook pages.

The other images and sentiment come from the Boys will be Boys set.

Behind the blocks and robot images you see some grid paper, that is leftover from a printing of some My Digital Studio project and I thought it added to the background a little.

Blendabilities in Action

Although the Need for Speed stamp set is retired, I had some stamped images of a few in my scrap pile and I thought I would practice with the Blendabilities on them.  They turned out pretty well, but more practice is definitely in order.

I used the Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler collections.  The background is Gorgeous Grunge images and the sentiment comes from Boys will be Boys.

On each of the windows on the cars, I used the lightest of the Coastal Cabana blendabilities markers.

Very Thankful

I am very thankful to have had some time before harvest to try to keep the posts going while I am digging potatoes (well I hope I am since I scheduled these posts weeks ago, LOL!). 
The Fabulous Four stamp set has a sentiment for that!  :)  I paired it with a couple designs in the Maritime designer series paper pack, a punched circle and silver basics button.

Seasonal Snapshot cards

The Holiday catalog contains another Project Life collection, called Seasonal Snapshot and I have a couple cards for you today that are created using it. 

Above, I added a sentiment from a retired set called Christmas Messages and on the card below there is no stamping at all.

Each one uses a little bit of Gold foil sheet and the last one is embossed with the On Point folder as well.

Three Sets

As simple as this card is, it uses three different stamp sets to complete it.  Regarding Dahlias, Everything Eleanor and Ray of Sunshine (again!). 

I added a few basic rhinestones for fun and texture as well.

Your Sunshine

This saying always reminds me of my daughter so I love to use it!  The card is another simple one using the circle images and saying from Ray of Sunshine, some washi tape and circle punches.

This summer was a HUGE milestone for my little girl, she finally learned to ride her bike after lots of falls, tears and scrapes.  I know that is a big deal for any child, but she has some right side weakness and balance issues due to a stroke she had when she was a baby so it was all the more wonderful to finally conquer it.

Baptism Blessings

I recently need a baptism card and was so glad to have the Blessed by God stamp set available to do it!  Love that set....
The grid background is actually something I printed in My Digital Studio for another project, it was leftover and I thought it would work for this card too. 

The middle of the flowers have basic pearls in them, but they are colored with blendabilities to change their look a little.
