Cards, Cards and More Cards

These past few weeks have been packed full of cards. So much so that I have 4 cards to share with you today.

This is the birthday card I gave to my Mother-in-law for her birthday. I had to include little fat birds, of course. And this time I tried something new (I also did it with the card for my Father-in law)... I got out my big stamping block and instead of stamping the 3 things separately I put all of them on the block and arranged them how I wanted them, then stamped once and they were exactly how I wanted them. This is probably old news to stampers, but I'm just figuring this stuff out.

Paper and card - DCWV
Fiskar Clear Stamps, Tags and Words - Birds
Greetings Clear Stamps - Happy Birthday
Fiskars corner rounder punch
StazOn black ink
Cutter Bee Scizzors
Dove Blender Pen
ColorBox chalk ink

This is the card for my Father-in-law for his birthday and Father's day.

Card stock - DCWV
Studio G Series 14 Stamp - Grill
Studio G Series 30 Stamp - dad
Dove Blender Pen
ColorBox chalk ink
StazOn black ink
Cutter Bee Scizzors

Just as an FYI, I used the StazOn ink and my blender pen to color in the gray for the charcoal inside the grill. I should have realized that once you put StazOn on a clear block, it doesn't come off again. Next time I shall be using my ColorBox black ink instead...

This is the card I made from Elijah to Joe for Father's day. For cards for Joe I always go out of my comfort zone... which is sometimes good and sometimes bad. I decided to make a little letter for the front.

Orange card stock - I believe it's Papertrey Ink (not positive though)
Blue card stock - Bo Bunny (YAY)
Yellow card stock - DCWV
Studio G Series 30 Stamp - daddy
Studio G Series 26 Stamp - I *heart* you
Studio G Series 31 Stamp - You Rock and Guitar
Making Memories Epoxy Shapes Boy Primary - Baseball and Football
Can't find what brand on anything the "fun" embellishment is. It was in the dollar section at Joann Fabrics.

This... Is the card I made my dad for Father's day. It's an oragami shirt and tie card. Crafty Creations - a blog I read - posted a link to THIS video on how to do an oragami shirt and tie, so I gave it a shot and I really like how it turned out.

Paper and card - DCWV
Studio G Series 30 Stamp - Happy Father's Day

That is all for today. I'll probably post my video of the week, tomorrow and then DYL on Friday. I'm trying to be better about updating this thing, so we'll see how that goes.
