Golf and Taxes

I am an avid golfer and love all things golf. When Frantic Stamper introduced the Golf Companion die set I knew I had to have it and would use it often. I created this tent card around a Create w/TLC sentiment as the focal point. The design paper is DCWV. I also used a Spellbinder's Nestabilities "Circle" die set and clear acetate paper. I highlighted the die cuts with a Krylon silver paint pen and a small scrap of miscellaneous design paper for the "dress." The "green and flag" is a button from my stash. I'm going to give this to my golf partner and I'm sure she'll love it.

You Are Fabulous

I made this card for the Frantic Stamper design team. The sentiment says it all and is the focal point of the card. "You are Fabulous" was cut with a Frantic Stamper die and it cut beautifully. 

I used glitter paper to cut out additional hearts to fill in the cut-outs of the die. The design paper is Carta Bella. I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities circle to cut and emboss a background for the sentiment. The roses were cut with the Cricut Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge. The additional flower is from my stash while the branches are a Martha Stewart medium "branches" punch. Finally I added clear bling for a bit of extra shine.

Just for Kids at Fitztown Challenge #48

Today I present you with an inspiration card for Fitztown Challenge #48.
 "Just for Kids"
Are you ready for some football? The football preseason is beginning and I found that choosing an image for this challenge was an easy one. I love using papers that when coupled with just the right image are the perfect marriage.

I colored the image (Sports 20) with Copic Markers. I started with a Kraft cardstock base and added brads, foam tape, Spellbinders Nestabilities and a Fiskars star punch to create the masculine card that will appeal to both children, teens and men. I hope this card inspires and gets your creative juices flowing. I look forward to seeing your creations!
