Birthday Cake

Good Day!

Just a nice quick card today. Used Stampin' Up products. Looks like lots of layers but really small pieces of layers.

Something to keep in mind is rounding just a couple corners can really change the look of the card. Softens it a little and keeps them from seeming so symmetrical. Everybody knows I like symmetry. lol
Here's to a great start of the week and by the end of it I'll be seeing my Grandsons!

Brotherly Love

HI There,

Another scrapbook page of my favorite topic. Grandsons.

The first photo was taken just after Korben was born. It was so funny because Mom & Dad had told Xavier how important it was to hold his brothers head cause babies couldn't do it for themselves.
As soon as they set Korbon in front of Xavier he immediately grasped his looks more like he's got him in a wrestling hold. lol

Cartridges Used:
Paper Doll Dress Up - Frog 3.5" & 4.2"
Art Philosophy - hearts 1" & 1.2"
Elegant Edges - Banner 9.25 x 1.85 (Utilized CCR to customize the size and also be able to create a shadow layer as there wasn't one)
Boys Will Be Boys - Font .6 & 1.3 (Even at .6 it cut very well)

All stitching with a brown micro pen. Green paper inked with Distress Ink Crushed Olive. The ant stamp from Stampin' Up - Bugs & Kisses
PS - Getting close to  my trip to see those boys in person! Just think of the new photos I can take!

Better Late Than Never....Right?


Yes, I do know Easter has come and gone but I forgot to share these cards. The card size is 4 x 4 and they are donated to the local Veterns Hospital to place on their food tray  on Easter.

Coloring was done with copics. Some of the images are stamped but many of them I found clip art on the internet and resized and printed then colored. Duck and Easter basket were stamps.
The last entry was an image from a scrapbook program I have so all I needed to do was print it.

When you're doing multiple cards using similiar designs it gets hard to come up with different ideas. I know, I'd save myself a lot of headache if I would just mass produce them all the same. What can I say, I like variety.

I think the bunny with the Happy Easter egg and the chick with flowers are my favorite and those were from the internet. So you see you can make cards even if you don't have stamps. Everyone has crayons somewhere. I'm just thinking here....never tried it....but you could probably color these images in on your computer through a program like paint or photoshop. Hmmmmmm?

Have a Great Day!
