Dam... I missed your birthday

I finally had an excuse to ink up this adorable stamp from Taylored Expressions (Beaver), when I saw the challenge at Cute Card Thursday.

The pattern paper is from ST! (Coffee Break and Wood Textures).  Doesn't that wood pile paper suit this stamp and sentiment perfectly?! 

I added a small punched card to the beaver's hands.  The beaver and sentiment are mounted on foam squares.

Teacher themed card

I played along with a couple of challenges today... I'm a sucker for school themes ;)

I used my SRM stickers again, this time paired up with an older SU! splatter stamp and the die is from PTI. 

As always, and of course fitting for the theme... the addition of some staples :)

Hello Handsome

Another warm day here... I am so looking forward to fall - not necessarily school starting... but fall ;)

I used my Jack collection by CTMH to create this simple card for a guy.  Who wouldn't love to get something like this?

The hello die is from MFT, the washi is from SU! but all the rest is from CTMH.  Quick and easy.

Clearance Sale on now!

I was relaxing, looking at my magazines... yes I still get them, I have always liked my paper magazines, digital doesn't do it for me ;)  Anyways... as I was doing so, I was looking at my new manicure and thought what a fun card it would be.  It has been hot here so this card is perfect.  Besides... in the summer, ice cream calories don't count do they?

Anyways, I love my new Reverse Confetti die and will be using this one lots as it makes a nice background for the image.   I then just die cut and stitched the cone before mounting it on foam squares.

Had to share my mani too :)  It was a perfect starting point don't you think?

Now if you like this card and are interested in the die... better get it now, it is on clearance and when it is gone, it is gone!

Be sure to check out the other products that are on clearance.... right HERE.

Main squeeze

Once again, getting the last of my summer themed cards in ;)

I used the Lemon Zest bundle to create this simple card.  

I have a lemon, honey and tumeric drink every morning so there is no shortage of lemons around here.  I am a sucker for anything lemon :)  The happy birthday sentiment was stamped, die cut with the banner die then mounted on foam squares for some dimension.

Act of optimism...

The end of summer is here for many and for me, I have one more week to get my classroom ready....

With all of the back to school challenges out there, I was inspired to create a card.  I pulled out my stash of SRM Stickers and played.  The papers are from CTMH.

Hi everyong, I'm back with another drink card.  First coffee, then lemonade so today I bring you some beer :) 

Once again, just some easy layering of papers and images.  I actually did this for a sketch challenge but was too late posting it (this has been sitting on my desk for a couple of days).  All supplies, except the Cheers die (that is MFT) are from Stampin' UP!  - need SU!.... I can hook you up!

I'm playing along with the LRW challenge - Sip it.
