Consider Yourself Vintage Car Card

This is a vintage car themed handmade birthday card. The design was inspired by the Unity Stamp Company May / June sketch challenge.  It will be included with the projects there. 


Front sentiment:  consider yourself vintage.
Inside sentiment:  embrace it all. these moments define YOU.

I love the vintage car and humorous sentiments to go with it. This sketch was perfect for this masculine card, as it did not include ribbon, bows or buttons.  I made few of these.  There are so many men and boys on both sides of our family and the need for masculine cards is never ending.

Tools used include:  Unity Stamp Company stamps from Consider Yourself  Vintage Itty Bitty, {...party all day} and Moment By Moment.  

Thanks for visiting. :)

Birthday Chicks

Here is a girly birthday card created for one of my younger nieces for our family birthday celebration recently.  It will be included with the Unity Stamp Company's Friends With Flair projects this week. 


This turned out just the way I wanted, with lots of hearts in pink and purple.  And I think the yellow chicks look sweet in their party hats.  The matching front sentiment is just as colorful and super fun to work with. 

Tools used include:  Unity Stamp Company{...party all day} "...it's your day" & Happy Chick Birthday Itty Bitty stamp sets.

Wishing you a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend.

Best Kid Ever

We celebrated birthdays along with Mother's Day last weekend.  Here is a banner flag garland card for my nephew.  He loves cars and all things boy.  This is included with the Unity Stamp Company's Friends With Flair projects today.



I chose these papers because of the cars and I thought that the stripes look like street lanes or tire tracks.  This fun Itty Bitty stamp set makes the card design easy to put together.

Tools used include:  Unity Stamp Company Joslyn Neilson Best Kid Ever & {...party all day} sets, Imaginisce paper, punch, Pop Dots, Ranger archival ink, BasicGrey paper pad and adhesive.

Owl Mini Cards & Tags

Here is a set of four owl mini cards for gift tags or bags.  These are 3" x 3" and have decorative envelopes.  This little owl is brown and gold and sits on a green branch.  The front sentiment is "It's all about YOU".  I think these are great for birthday, thank you, teacher, student, graduate or even Father's Day notes and tags.  And it is fitting for a guy or gal.  These were inspired by Miss Gloria's critter themed 3x3 card designer challenge over at My Creative Time and will be included there.



Tools used include:  From My Creative Time It's All About You stamp set & 3x3 Fancy Envelope Die.
