Birthday Stamp Camp

I haven't been able to post much lately, so I thought I'd share these four cards I demonstrated at my last stamp camp. I've been wanting to stock up on birthday cards so we did 6 different designs.

The first one here we used the Big Shot and Butterfly Die, I never get tired using either one. :o) I wrapped strands from the baja breeze grosgrain ribbon around the butterfly then tied in a knot.

The card below I cased from someone in our SBStampers group, not sure who did it but I just loved the color combo and simplicity.

Several of the ladys love their martinis, so they got a kick out of making this one.

Sorry to make this so brief, I'll have more to post later. Have a great week....can you believe it's already June? Geesh!

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #18

Here's my card for Karen's challenge. You can check out her blog here. I have to admit, I made a little boo boo, that's why the ribbon is wrapped around the one corner. Don't you just hate when you're done with a project and then you have a whoops! I dropped the stazon ink pad right on the edge of the card. I liked the way the card turned out and didn't want to re-do it.

I did a little watercoloring on this one, using the aqua painter and ink pads. I need to use this technique more often, I really like the look of it. Thanks for looking!

Stamp Pad: Soft Summer

Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #32 - Twilight

Alright, so I'm a HUGE Twilight fan! LOL, like so many of you I'm sure. :o) My friend called me last night and told me I had to check out this challenge, click here, and design a card for it. I had such a hard time coming up with something for some reason. So, as my son is playing baseball in the rain as we speak, I got this idea to do something with baseball since that's something the Cullen's like to do. I added a little bling on the baseball cap to make a 'C' for Cullen, added the heart on the baseball and then the quote from Edward when Bella asked him about vampires liking baseball? So, there you have it :o) Thanks for looking.
