Billy's Birthday Card


I made this card for my son's birthday next week.  I cased it from one on Pinterest by Debbi's Design.  I didn't have the moose stamp she used but thought this deer stamp by Paper and Such (couldn't find there link to post) worked nicely.  I used Vintage Photo distress ink to stamp the image, copics for a little color, cut it out and matted with SB labels one die set.  Chevron embossing folder from The Paper Studio, Stampin' Up! punches for the Happy Birthday, and brown cs from Hobby Lobby.

Hubby's Father's Day Card



Popping in for a quick challenge post.  This is my hubby's Father's Day card.  My inspiration came for one I saw on Pinterest.  I'm not sure where the beer mugs are from, but they are colored with copics, I heat set puffy velvet fabric marker for the foam, and glossy accents on the mugs.  Brown cs from my stash, particle board paper from The Paper Studio, and beer paper from Pinterest.  I used my sewing machine to zig zag around the paper, computer generated sentiment, button brad from my stash, dark brown ribbon by Offray, and Tim Holtz walnut distress ink.
