Patriotic Greeting

I just got limited edition running shoes that were specially designed for the Peachtree Road Race. It is my first time running it and the shoes are just awesome, so I am high on the July 4th spirit right now! Also, I am in love with this card and I'm entering it into the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #198- Holidays! Here are the materials I used:

Patriotic Patti

So this card originally came out of wanting to use the pinwheel little bit die cut by Taylored Expressions. I did the whole card and it turns out that the little bit pinwheel was too big for the girl. Go figure. So, I made a smaller one from paper scraps. I think it worked out pretty well! Here are the materials I used:
  • Patriotic Patti stamp by Impression Obsession
  • copics- B16, B18, R39, R46, E00, E01, E08, E09, Y17, YR27
  • Crazy Talk stamp set by Tim Holtz
  • stampin' up ink- real red and brilliant blue
  • red and pearl rhinestones

Father's Day- Henhouse

My dad's current pet project--ha!--is raising chickens in the backyard. He treats them like pets now and they sure are living the life. They've got over 100 square feet to roam around a garden and dig in the dirt. I have enjoyed the benefits of free eggs! So, this card doesn't scream Father's day for most people, but it sure does for my dad :) I also made one with a few changes to send to a friend. See it at the bottom. Here are the materials I used:

Baby Shower

The way I used this stamp came from my mom. She was telling me about using this stamp and popping out some of the presents so I just had to copy her when my assistant asked me to make a card for her niece's baby shower. It's hard to tell in this picture, but I promise the presents are popped! perfect! The sketch came from the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #273. Here are the materials I used:
  • Shower Gifts stamp by A Muse Artstamps
  • Oh boy paper by Me and My Big Ideas
  • Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangles by My Favorite Things
  • copics- C2, C3, W0, W2, B12, B41, B93
  • Clothesline stamp set by Impression Obsession 
  • white gel pen
  • stampin' up ink- tempting turquoise
  • memento ink- tuxedo black
