Masculine Birthday

It's been forever since I got some actual card making done, so yep, I'm sharing on a Saturday! We have a bunch of birthdays right now, and I didn't have enough made by a long shot. I used the sketch challenge from SUO Challenges and made the card their design team did not make, haha...! And this card worked out quickly too.

Something pretty!

See? I made a card! You're welcome! hahaha! I saw this challenge to CASE the designer at Global Design Project and loved the idea...That's a really pretty card to CASE! The trick was making it work with supplies I have. I think I did okay, haha... I don't yet own the ink pads in these new In Colors, and I don't own any kind of big floral image but this worked for me. I'm also putting it with the SUO challenge to make something, and I am happy with this so there we go. 

To create the watercolory background, I colored with my Cinnamon Cider marker directly onto the " I " block. Then I used a little watercolor brush that actually came with a kit several years ago, and painted water onto some Shimmery card stock, where I planned to "stamp" the block. After it dried, I stamped my vines and the script over the brown "splotch". I added the gingham and lace ribbon, and topped it with this fussy cut frame image. Finally I added the greeting and a few pearls. 

Stamps: Very Versailles 
Ink: Cinnamon Cider & Just Jade
Paper: Just Jade & Shimmery card stocks
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Lace Trim, Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Pack, Dimensionals, Glue Dots

I know, I've shared a lot of scrapbooking this year, but that's what I'm working on so... haha. I do have plans for more cards, so we'll see what I get done. But for today, here's a new layout.

This one was for a Stashbusters challenge. I used "more than five photos", "enamel shapes" (raindrops) and "paper clips". Also pulled out some long retired product so that was nice. 

Stamps: Just Perfect Alphabet (retired!), March 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit
Ink: Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight
Paper: Basic Gray & Daffodil Delight card stocks, Sunshine & Sprinkles DP (retired!)
Accessories: Hodgepodge Hardware (retired!), Epoxy rain drops (March 2020 Paper Pumpkin)

And here's a couple close ups for you!

We Create Blog Hop: Snacks & Beverages

and just like that, it's August! I can hardly believe it! But a new month means a new blog hop and I'm excited for this one! 
Our theme this month is Snacks & Beverages. I don't typically give away snacks in stampin' style, more like a big plate of cookies or something. But I have been wanting this set for a different reason, which is exactly what I'm featuring today! 

You know I love scrapbooking. My littlest loves to make (and eat!) chocolate chip cookies, so this is a perfect match! I actually scrapped two different cookie days! And my little girl is thrilled to have more pages done, plus her book is now in order, haha! 

First of all, if I'd thought it through entirely, I could have made this a stamping-only page, but I did die cut the word "cookies". Everything else is stamped tho! Even a subtle background on the Poppy Parade card stock. The cookie outline is Early Espresso and the cookie color is Crumb Cake.

And this second layout uses a lot more die cutting- the words and the cookies! This time the cookies are stamped with black ink onto Cinnamon Cider card stock.
