Pinterest Inspired Birthday Card

I found a similar card to this one on Pinterest ( 

I have the Swallowtail Butterfly stamp from Stampin' Up, and decided to do something similar.  For this card, I stamped the swallowtail and sentiment images with VersaMark, and then embossed with a Recollections Sapphire embossing powder.  The card base is 5 x 6.5.  The blue mat was cut a 1/4 inch smaller.  I trimmed the butterfly at a slight angle to 4.5 x 4.25, and the sentiment to 4.5 x 4 3/8.

Northwood Stamp and Copic (Man Fishing in Canoe with Dock)

I've been creating cards, but none have been for my husband!  So this past weekend, I created this card for him. 

This card is 4.25 x 5.5.  The stamp is from Northwood Rubber Stamps - P9104 (Man Fishing in Canoe with Dock), stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I used my Copic markers to color the stamped image.  To make the water shimmery, I added a bit of glitter to the water with a clear atyouSpica glitter pen. The image was then mounted on black card stock.  The background was done with brown card stock, stamped with a Black Penny wood grain stamp, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.

Christmas Card with WPlus9 and Cheery Lynn Dies

I recently ordered the WPlus9 Quilt dies and had to try them.  I used paper I had at hand (and it was from a recently made Christmas card).  The doily in the background is a Cherry Lynn die, and was
cut in half.
