Challenge 288 – Mustache Birthday Card

This week I have another masculine birthday card. This sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday just lend its self to a nice masculine card. I would have fallowed the added challenge of autumn colors but I felt I was using lots of kraft and things lately so I wanted to use some blues instead. If you missed my last masculine card there is a video on how I made it. Check it out here.

Challenge 287 -Typewriter Birthday Card + Video

I had a lot of fun with this sketch. This card was actually idea number three but I think it was the best one. The major trouble I had with this card was making the typewriter work. It is a pretty large image. And I loved my background so much I wanted to make sure you could see it.

Challenge 284 – Woodland Pictures

20160727_140023This week at Try Stampin on Tuesday the theme was paper tearing. I was inspired by I card I saw  to make a card that looked like overlapping hanging pictures. To add dimension to my flat coloring I used some grey fro drop shadows. I forgot to write down the colors that I used to color the image.
