Pepe L’Souris – Grate Birthday

I find it hard to make male cards but I really enjoyed making this one.  I saw this image on another crafter’s card a couple of weeks ago and thought it would a good idea for my son in law’s birthday card – so thank you, Linda, for flagging it up.  It’s a Paper Shelter image – Pepe Souris, with 3 mice designs in the pack, but I choose to use this one on its own.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and fussy cut around it and the grater, which came from Clip Art.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Blowing Bubbles

I know there is a new baby due very soon so I needed to make a couple of baby cards – and this is the one for a boy.  I used the digi image, Blowing Bubbles from LOTV, and coloured it with Promarkers.  I cut around the image with a stitched circle die, placed that on the largest die from Polkadoodles Fanciful Circles set, and then layered it onto a large patterned grey circle.  The small sentiment tags are from LOTV, the Baby Boy words were die cut with a Britannia die, and all these were embossed.

Sassy

Valentines Day is past but I’ve made this card with an alternative love theme.  I used Sassy from All Dressed Up, coloured her with Promarkers and added Stickles Star Dust to her dress.    I distressed the embossed hearts with Spun Sugar DI and placed it behind a die cut circle in the backing paper.  The large heart was die cut and embossed, and the sentiment was computer generated.  The pearls are from the Ribbon Girl.

Delightful Daisies

This is an anniversary card for our daughter and her husband, using a LOTV digi image – Delightful Daisies.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and die cut it with a stitched circle die.  The trellis is a Spellbinders die, the die cut flowers are from La Cabina and the leaves are an old die (possibly Marianne Designs).  The sentiment is from Polkadoodles and the pearls are from my stash.
