Enjoy Summer & Xciting Birthday

So excited – I got some more “Crafty” on in my room on this Sunday afternoon – Made 2 more cards!!

First one:


I used scraps from my scraps file – the Shore Thing stamp set from SU!, markers and water pen and LOTS OF BRADS!!!

I followed this sketch –

TMS #301

Over at Tuesday Morning Sketches# 301

And I played in this challenge too ~

Clear It Out Challenge  Theme:  Holiday-school’s out! (think summer fun)
Stash: Brads/Eyelets (now you can see why I used all those white brads)

Second One:


Used a Hero Arts stamp set –  called “X” – it featured this fun X that I stamped and embossed and watercolored in using my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush pen – I used a scrap of blue paper and stamped and embossed the sentiment in white on the black card!! Added a few Doodlebug sequins and I was done!!!

Linking this card up to these challenges:

SSS Simon Monday Challenge  Challenge: X, Y, Z…


Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge –  # 152 Black & White with a Touch of Color

Craft Stamper – Take It Make It Challenge: May (take a stamp)

    Wanna know what I think? I think your cards are fantabulous! The sunny summer scene is calling my name! I want to plunk myself into that welcoming chair, bask in the sun, and read a novel by one of my favourite authors, Louise Penny (I love her mysteries!). Your colourful bold X is simply splendid! Love the shades of blue, and pairing it with black adds to the impact! *X-citing* indeed! So happy to see you with your ‘crafty’ on…it suits you to a “t”!

    Hello..I would have bet money I left you a comment on these cards but I don’t see it so here I go….two fabulous cards but your first card is so incredible. I would love to be sitting on a beach some where nice and warm in your fabulous beach chair. It is simply adorable. Your second card is so fun and just perfect for a guy or gal. And I love the bold colors, so fun! Hope you are doing well!
