A Card for Your Guy

Sometimes you just want to tell him you love him. Maybe just randomly, no special occasion needed. Here is a great card for that!

This card features the colors: whisper white, pool party, gold, and some basic black.  These are the colors (minus the black) in the Can You Case It? Color Challenge.

Love Is In the Air, Remarkables Blog Hop

Valentine, my sweet valentine... alright, let's get down to business!

Isn't this the cutest thing ever??  This Wood You Be Mine? stamp set is in the new Occasions Catalog from Stampin' Up!  And maybe you don't know this, but I love puns and plays on words, so I could not resist!  I went a bit all out on this card, but I think it was worth it.
Here is a list of the supplies used:
Wood You Be Mine? stamp set, Naturals White CS, Old Olive CS (both have their edges sponged in Crumb Cake ink) Crumb Cake and Old Olive, and skin assortment Blendabilities, blender pen, gold ink, Real Red, Old Olive, Garden Green, and Early Espresso ink pads, and some Early Espresso seam binding ribbon.

The secret to having just part of the cute bearded guy is that I used a sponge dauber to put the ink on the stamp, so that I could just get a bit of the image.

Alrighty, my next card (2 versions shown) features no stamping!!  My goodness, how can it be done?  Well, take a look!

I was inspired by the December Paper Pumpkin kit (do you get these yet?  If not, ask me about them, they're awesome!)  I wanted to make a shaker card, with hearts and sequins.  So now take a look at the 2nd version, and you must comment and let me know which one you like best.

Supplies used:
Little Letters Thinlits Dies, Framelits - Squares Collection, Stacked With Love DSP Paper Stack, Crumb Cake, Real Red and Whisper White CS, Gold Glimmer Paper, Window Sheets, Heart Punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Gold Sequin Trim, and the new Confetti Heart Border Punch.

So I hope you enjoyed my cards and maybe are inspired to make something special for those you love.
