Nautical Hello Card

This card has a nautical theme.  It was originally designed for my nephew's pirate birthday card and then I made another as a love and support card.  I included a port hole or life preserver frame, sailboard and the large hello in a speech bubble.


Front sentiment:  Hello sailor!

Inside sentiment:  In high tide or low tide, I'll be by your side.

Supplies:  My Creative Time stamps and dies, BasicGrey paper, My Mind's Eye paper, cording and Ranger ink.

Happy summer time!

Pops You Rock! Gift Card Holder

Father's Day is next week and this was designed for my Father-In-Law.


Front sentiment:  Happy Father's Day


Inside sentiment:  Pops you rock!

Since he enjoys taking the Mrs. out for dinner, I included a gift card holder inside.
I kept this design CAS style with the chevron arrows and just the sentiment.  The paper has a watercolor look to it, so I made those inlays.

This is included in the My Creative Time June 2014 Masculine Designer Challenge. 

Supplies:  
My Creative Time sets from More Gift Card Sentiments, You're My Best Buddy, Stitched Chevy Dies and Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die.
Also, Ranger Ink and BasicGrey paper.

Thank you for visiting. Have a fabulous day.

Butterfly Wings

Here is a sympathy card with tiny butterflies in the background with the larger image flat this time.  I tried to keep this uplifting with the colors and brightness.


Front sentiment:  Heartfelt sympathy.

Inside sentiment:  Our thoughts are with you.

The larger butterfly was stamped over the small ones and then painted in watercolor.  I like that the tiny butterflies peek through.

It's pretty neat that Unity invites friends/fans to share Unity creations on their Friends With Flair post each week.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co stamps from 11/2013 KOTM Strength and Dignity, May Hope Sustain You, With Her Own Wings and Heartfelt Sympathy. Also, Ranger archival ink, Canson watercolor paper, ribbon, Bazzill cardstock, Sakura watercolor paint and water brush.

Thank you for visiting.  Your comments make my day. :)
