Happy Birthday, Everyone {Ken}

Hi All,

Happy Weekend! The card I have for you today was made for my husband.  He's a Leap Year baby, so he actually had a birthday this year.

Mary Brown's card was my inspiration.  The simple design was perfect for a masculine card.  I switched up the colors and paired up the Happy Birthday, Everyone stamp set with some abstract images.  This is a Hostess set from the 2015-2016 Catalog.  I love the font and there really is a sentiment for "Everyone".

Item #: 139958 $9.00 {Hostess Set}

You've Got This

Hi All,

Happy Hump Day!  Hope it's been a great week so far.  I got a pretty cool surprise. I am the Featured Stamper over at SplitcoastStampers.  How awesome is that?  People will be hopping into my Gallery and CASE-ing my cards.  I'm truly honored.

For those that don't know what SCS is, it's a website that was started by SU! Demonstrators way back when, to share cards...and it's still going strong today.  You have a stamp set and don't know how to use it, plug in the stamp set name and you will get all kinds of card ideas that others have uploaded. There are also different card challenges each day.  I have been posting cards here forever...8 YEARS to be exact.  That's just CRAZY!  If you haven't been, go check it out. Here's a link to SCS.
Here's a link to my gallery.

Today I have a set of cards for you.  My colors were chosen for me as I used a polka dot print DSP and my choices were limited. My inspiration was this card by Nance Leedy.

These cards use the You've Got This stamp set.  It's a good one.  You get this gorgeous flower and the big abstract background stamp.  It's a two for one!

Item #: 139575 $28.00 Clear Mount
The flower was embossed with white embossing powder.  I then took the matching marker (to the ink) and traced around the embossed edges of the flower.  You can still see the flower if you don't, but this adds a bit more dimension.

This simple design made it quite easy to make multiple cards.  Hope you like them!  If you'd like to add this set to your collection, pop me an email or click on the 'Order Online' icon in the top right-hand corner.  Thanks for stopping by!
