Blue Butterflies

Another Birthday Card for this one I used a Penny Black stamp using Tom Bow Markers on the stamp.  I used a Die cut from Spellbinders to frame it with patterned DP.  Both DP from my stash.
The butterflies are from an EK punch with small gems added.  The Gems and Ribbon/Flowers are also from my stash.  The gems seemed to have picked up the light when I took the picture.

And a close up showing the colors a little better.

The Cook

Another Birthday card for a male, I really am running out of ideas, I try to get something that pertains to their life style - sports,  hobbies,  age,  etc.  Anyway I think this suits Darian 22 who has his own apartment and I know he like to entertain, and there isn't any better way than with a barbecue in the summer.

The image is from The Stamping Boutique and I have used Copics for color.  I printed the sentiment   on the computer.  Then I cut it out with v's on the ends and added the two brads, one on each side.  I flattened the brads with a hammer, because I was sending it in the mail. (Didn't lose any paint still okay.)

Happy Little Birds

This was a quick card for a friends birthday.  I did an emboss resist for the background using Ink pads
The birds are a digital image colored with Copics.  I purchased the background stamp from Craftsy. 
The butterfly and the sticker sentiment are from my stash.  The embossing powder from Tim Holtz does have some sparkle to it, though it only shows that in the green portion of the card.
