Bug's B'day Card

Oh my, I can't believe my daughter will be 30 next month. 
Yet another CASE off Pinterest, and used Hardwood Bkgd. 
I actually dusted off the Cricut to do the barbed Wire frame for the wall
The boots are a sticker, I believe Jolee's boutique dimensional.
The dress is from some retired SU DSP, but I used real lace for the edge of the vest, breast area and slip, it's cut with the same framelit but it doesn't look it. LOL
getting the angle for the corner on the floor/wall was a trick, does anyone remember that stuff from school? LOL

Pop ups and a Cascade

 A Olaf card for MJ

Safari card for my nephew Mike aka Creep

Then there's this one I made for my coworkers little girl. Her b'day isn't until July, but I had fun with this one. I am going to do a piece for the back, like an entrance sign that says happy b'day. The copier at work was no cooperating with me and the transparencies LOL so maybe later! 

Bird on the wall

I sooooo CASE'd this one, I found this one on Pinterest (go figure)
Mine looks nothing like hers, i can not seem to really copy a card, Here's is so pretty with lace on it, and random nails on the wood.
My hubby said no nails for mine, plus I used the pheasant from Walk In The Wild. 
I believe this layout is called Herringbone.
I stamped 4 of the backgrounds and cut out each board, then inked the edges with Early Espresso

Pool Pudding

Bad name for the title LOL

There was a post on Face Book for using the colors Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding
Her thoughts were for boy cards, Lovely as a Tree jumped in my head

here I go using the Hard Wood background stamp again! LOL 

Some ladies would be so proud of me, I even stamped on the inside, and I did an envelope too!

Oh, just an odd piece of info, Lovely as a Tree was my very first stamp set. I bought it for a family history book i was working on. I will never sell it, no matter if it retires!!

I actually have a couple sets I will never part with
Bare Back Classic Cars and Pickups
Wildlife Reserve 
Horse Frontier
In Wilderness
Nature's Nest
Roosting (and the chicken wire bkgd)
In Wilderness
Noble Deer

SU needs more guy stamps

Class for February 2015

These cards are identical except for colors. I can't get over just how different they are.
The image size is the same for all of the cards, 
My plan was to show off 4 different stamp sets....Achieved! LOL
I also found out that the train from the Stampin' Up! Traveler Set is the same size too!!


I couldn't figure out which color to go with so I put it to a vote....Blue won out.

I really love all of the cards I've found on Pinterest using the Hardwood back ground stamp. 
I bought that Chevron Ribbon when it first came out, used it on a set of cards for a swap.....then it just sat in the drawer. 

I'm sad the Stampin' Up1 only has the one type of brads, but I like them little buggers anyhow.

Stamps used: 
The Open Sea
Lovely as a Tree
Walk in the Wild

Early Espresso
Crumb Cake

Marine Mist
Crumb Cake
Very Vanilla
Soft Suede

Mostly SU punches, Cricut (had to dust it off) for the grass and clouds

Our plan is to send him money as part OF the card each year, Bailey too. 

I have quite the stock pile of Two Dollar bills started. I wanted Silver Dollars, but Gold ones are so much easier to find.

 Am I hallucinating or  do some of my circles look like eggs? LOL

MDS Monday Challenge

I found a very cool Blog, with My Digital Studio Challenges, oooh right up my alley!

A background technique that could be applied to a card or scrapbook page, the herringbone technique
She even posted a link to the tutorial AWESOME! (I really needed that one)

This one turned out okay, Was just goofing around, didn't have a photo in mind when I started. The photo came after completion. I had to go search my stash for a Christmasy pic! 
Thank you Marla for always sharing  photos!

My second page, I planned around the photo, using color match to do it. All the stripes match their clothes and the blue in the sky. I really love this photo of my Uncle and his wife. 
The drop shadow shows better on this one too.
