Birthday Card – Simply Betty


Hi There,

We were challenged by Betty Roberts and Rio Judy Ford to come up with a creation for the SBS Friends – August Progressive Challenge. Below is my creation.

Using digital stamps from Simply Betty – StrawberryRio and StrawberryChantay, I coloured the images in with Copic markers.

Sentiment on front of card is also from Simply Betty – StrawberryRio.

Father’s Day card for my Father-in-Law


Hi There and Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! We went over to visit my father-in-law and family tonight and we knew ahead of time that he was going to BBQ. I thought it would be fun to make him this BBQ-ing Dragon from High Hopes Stamps and create my own sentiment inside.

Inside the card:

Stamped image High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card Cardstock.

Coloured image with Copic markers.

Die cut – Die-namics – Exclusive Designs from My Favorite Things – MFT-652 – Cross-Stitch Rectangle ST and went around with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Black Soot.

Stamped background with High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Then used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fired Brick and Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Spiced Marmalade. I was hoping to make the background look like a huge flame.

Edging around card – Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Candied Apple

My father-in-law loved his card! Hope you do too!
