Birthday Boy

IMG_20140719_0007

I just bought this Mo Manning digital image and think he is so adorable.  I used the new Carta Bella “Boy oh Boy” by Carina Gardner, which is perfect for boys and teen males.  The wonky shaped die is My Favorite Things Blueprint 11.  The sentiment is part of a Paper Smooches “Happy Birthday” stamp, but I only inked it up half way.  I really like to use my supplies in ways they weren’t intended.  It makes me feel like I’m getting my monies worth!  I colored the image with Copics and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Inks.

This challenge for Operation Write Home used the Sketch from My Favorite Things for the requested “Teen Card”.  This was a great sketch to use for a teen girl.  I used Amy Tangerine’s Plus One.  I love this paper pack for teens.  The sentiment and headset is from My Favorite Things “Rock On” stamp set.

This OWH Challenge calls for a Missing You card using at least two banners and one circle.  I love a challenge that allows you to use your own creativity.  The supplies are all from the Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit.  This kit just keeps on giving.  Dies used are from My favorite Things and include, pierced flags, pierced circles, and frame.  I colored the envelops with C1 and C4 Copic Markers.

Back to playing in my July Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for July.  This card uses this weeks Operation Write Home Sketch 231.  I colored the envelops with Copics in B14, B05 and B37 and used one of the stickers that come in the kit.  The “love” stamp is part of the “Lots of Love” stamp, only partially inked.  Don’t forget to stretch your stamps by using portions of sentiments or even cutting them if needed.  You can always put them back on the block the way they were intended.

This is a combination of two great Lawn Fawn sets, “Happy 4th” and “You’ve Got Mail”.  These are especially great for Operation Write Home cards.  I used Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Stonewash, Soft Vanilla, and Red Royal.  Cut a hole in the postbox to fit the letter in. Card stock is Club Scrap and Smooth Bristol.

I don’t often make Clean & Simple cards, but saw the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge and thought I’d give it a go with this Simon Says Stamp set called  “Absolutely Delightful”.  The butterflies are from the Flight of Fancy Tim Holtz and Sizzix collaboration of stamps and dies. I colored them with Distress Markers. Delightful was stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Just Rust, Dark Quartz, Soft Cantaloupe, Soft Apricot, Butter Bar and Soft Vanilla.
