Hot Air Balloon – Guy themed card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Cajun Craze is a color I seem to forget until Autumn, but it is a great color for masculine cards, especially if you pair it with Sahara Sand and Early Expresso! If you are regular reader of my blog you will know that I struggle with guy themed card but it you have the right stamp set and the right colors they are a lot easier to make. 🙂

I shall be so sorry to see the Soar Confidently Stamp Set retire but it will be available until June 30th – so you can still add it to your order!

Bumble Bee Birthday Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I chose to use Bumble Bee design from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper for todays card, pulling out 2 of the colors for my card, Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight. To showcase the double-sidedness of the paper I used both sides of the same sheet.

I used the ‘tone-on-tone stampin’ technique for my background and broke out my watercolor pencils to color my cheeky lil’ donkey, he looks so cute just sitting there 🙂
