Masculine car birthday

The car is from a digital image and I added the sentiment before printing. I made 5 of these cards for the Church ministry's men birthdays for August.
The background was stamped with black ink using the background stamp from the Papertrey Ink anniversary set "round and round". I stamped once after inking up and then stamped another row without re-inking. I then repeated the process until the background was covered in dots.

Simple floral birthday

Background & sentiment: Unity Stamp company: Best Wishes and Blooms
Colored with Spectrum Noir markers (Lights set)

Another girly birthday

Here's another birthday card using a Mo Manning image (Digital Pencil):

Main image: Abby Celebrating (Digital Pencil) :

(Sentiment my own - added before printing)
Colored with Spectrum Noir (Lights set)

Balloons were covered with Ranger Glossy Accents


Our new home seems to have horrid lighting so I hope to find a solution to the photo quality quickly!

Masculine birthday

I made this card for a very good friend's birthday.
Stamps used:
GinaK Designs - Tree Silhouettes
GinaK Designs - Fanciful Tags

Background paper: Webster's Pages

Father's Day

This is the card I made for Father's Day last month. Since most of my stuff was packed away I couldn't post this until now ;D

LOVED this image from the second I saw it and this IS my husband!
Sentiment: Added in Microsoft Powerpoint before printing
Colored with Spectrum Noir markers

The background I made by cutting squares from blue and red cardstock with my square Spellbinders dies. I then arranged them into this patter on a piece of plain cardstock. I cut the edges straight once all the squares were glued in place.

Happy Anniversary

I'm BACK! Well, just slowly for now. Card-making equipment and materials are packed away and have to be hauled out and packed away again every time I want to use them so I'm not as productive as I used to be. But I'll try and find some groove soon.

First I want to show this anniversary card I made and I ... COLORED!! I used Spectrum Noir markers (Lights set):

Background paper: Webster's Pages
Image: Mo Manning's "Tom and Tilly" (
