Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s reading this! Today’s cards are for the Super Sketch at 365 Cards and from yesterday’s Make and Take at Stamp & Deliver. As always, Pam gave us a wonderful sketch to follow. I began by taking my new Basic Grey Max & Whiskers paper pad and choosing the papers. After looking at the colors of the paper, I thought the image stamp would look good in brown ink. The stamp is from Limited Editions and the sentiment is SU.
The following cards are those from the store. The theme this month was masculine cards and these really fit the bill.
They were all fun to create and it is always fun to get with the ladies at the store. The top card with the vintage car was super easy (no stamping). Just cut out the car and add some patterned paper. The next card (lighthouse) was stamped and then colored with pencils. The background paper really makes the card pop. The fishing martini was stamped twice and the top of the glass colored and cut out. We popped it up on foam. I added some diamond glaze to the glass when I got home. The final card (3 bird profiles) is very elegant. We stamped it in brown ink and used chalks to color. The background panel was run through a crimper and then the mulberry paper added on top. It is hard to see, but we used a gelly pen to outline the flowers and the squares. Now to decide which one my hubby gets for Father’s Day!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. We are heading to my son’s for a cookout. He has teriyaki glazed steaks, shrimp kabobs and twice baked potatoes! This from someone who doesn’t cook! Thank god for the butcher shop on the corner :)
