70th Birthday

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest by Regina at the Cutting Cafe Blog. This card is for my MIL's 70th Birthday. I cut the 70 shaped card and numbers on my Silhouette and my image is "Frame It Stella" by Bugaboo.  I colored her with Copic markers, used glossy accents on her glasses and Star Dust stickles for her hat and icing on the cake.

30th Anniversary

Gus Birthday

I made this card for my brother-in-laws 50th birthday!  I used Bugaboo's "Gus Birthday Old Fart" digi stamp and colored him with Copics.  The black paper is from Bazzill that I used my VersaMarker pen then put clear heat embossing powder on.  The black & white paper is from Paper Studio Black & White 4.5" X 6.5" pad and the red is from my stash.  I'm not sure where the 50 sentiment is from but it was a freebie.

The Big Guy Grilling
