I love these colors! I need a birthday card for my step-FIL and these hues are perfect for a masculine card. I got some new goodies with my birthday money and went to work:
The number and typewriter EFs are from Tim Holtz; the Old Olive panel is stamped with SU’s retired Dictionary background stamp, and the banner is from Banner Blast. I cut the circle with a Lil’Inker’s Stitched Circles mat, and I used SU’s Little Letters to diecut the H and the B. I used a Paper Pumpkin stamp to stamp the “happy birthday” on the circle, and I left the spaces in the B unstamped, just for fun!
Normally I might sponge the embossed areas for a distressed look, but I wanted them to remain bright and colorful, so I restrained myself! I do love the bold look that the black mats give these colors, so I used them with each of my panels….and the sketch is from Match The Sketch:
I hope you’ll play along with these colors too! The design team has created some awesome samples….it always amazes me how they each come up with their own unique design and style! Check them out:
If the sight of a naked doll baby turns your stomach, you might want to skip these photos….naked babies don’t deter Cassidy at all! The little engineer was determined to adapt her swing (which desperately needs a new seat, LOL!) so that her baby could use it. Since Grampy has a plethora of bungee cords, she went into his shop and asked him if she could borrow some and tried to make her own baby swing! She had them wrapped around and over, and finally, with some help from Grampy, she managed to make them work:
Swinging success! And yes, she’s wearing Minion PJs in the middle of the day. I choose my battles and that one is not worth fighting!
Enjoy your day!
