Seize the Birthday #11 - Male Card - Motorcycle

Happy Monday,
This post is for the Seize the Birthday, Male  card challenge this week.  I embossed the Whisper White mat with the Chevron embossing folder, unfortunately a bit hard to see in the photo, stamped my image, added the Silver pearls and mounted it on dimensionals. I under lined the sentiment with an Artliner to give it a bit more depth and made it into an off the page flag for some extra interest.
Thank's to the DT this card received Birthday Honours at Seize the Birthday.

Stamps: S/U's Motorcycle, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Card: Basic Black, Basic Grey, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon Black
Finishing Touches: Silver Pearls
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Chevron E/Folder, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Glue
Thanks for dropping in today.

Merry Monday #56 - Jingle All the Way

Happy Easter Monday Everyone,
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge this week.  After some polling from our dedicated followers Lesley and the Design Team have voted and we will be doing Sketch Challenges only from this week. For this challenge I have used Designer Paper all the way, even for the sentiment, no stamping at all. The row of stockings on the DSP determined the layout and I changed it to a Landscape card. I embossed the Whisper White card , made my flags, and added the sentiment and dressed it up with the crochet cotton and little bells, using dimensionals to give some dimension to some of the layers. Nice quick and easy card.

Stamps: None
Card and Papers: Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Kaisercraft Mint Twist DSP
Ink: Light Grey Copic
Finishing Touches: Crochet Cotton, Jingle Bells, Clear Thread
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Polka Dot E/Folder, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Martha Stewart Screw Punch, Needle, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I love to hear from you.
