Go for broke

 Since I have the screen up and everything is working today I am going to post another picture while I am waiting for my ride to my doctors appointment. So here is some more pictures that I have been working on.

This is a gift bag and card set that I made. The square behind the motor bike is made from a coke can and I ran it through the big shot using a textured plate to get the embossed impression. Then I inked it with black stayson ink to give it that aged look. I think the silver connected the over all look of the chrome to the stamp on the bike and I used the zizzy gold pen to highlight some of the chrome on the bike. I used the silver stretchy cord to tie a bow on the handy to also add to the silver look. I just really love this set for a manly gift. I lost my sheet with the supply directions so I cannot list my supplies for you but pretty basic hope you can figure it out. Let me know what you think.

This is another manly or could be a generic card.  I guess I was in a manly mood.  Some of my customers were requesting more manly cards so I guess I better get busy and give them what they want.  I really am glad they came out with this stamp set because it is so manly and earthly and of course I could give it that good old 3-D touch.  What do you think?

This card I made for a person who liked golf for his birthday.  I like the textured background.  I think it reminded me of the texture on the golf balls itself what do you think?

Isn't he the sadest dog face you ever saw?  You just have to laugh when you open this card.  I am sure it would make any sick person feel much much better when they open this one.

This is a graduation card very quick and simple using last years stamp set.  I am not to keen on owls but like all the stamps in this set. used the watercolor pencils to color everything in.  Since gold and blue were my graduating colors I chose these for my card ever though that was so so so long long ago.......

Wow I finally got to Blog SURPRISE!!!!!!

So I will not waste any time here are some pictures of some of my last cards that I have made.

Grandson Alex's birthday Card

This card I made for my grandson Alex on his last birthday.  He is into all kinds of sports and I thought this would be kind of cute for him, he was ten on his birthday.  I liked using all the different textured plated with the colored cardstock on the background and of course I had to use some 3-D on my card by adding the buttons.  Very simple and fast to make.
