Seize the Birthday #6

Hi again, blogger friends!  Yes, I missed the deadline for the Seize the Birthday Challenge #5, but here I am with two cards for the Seize the Birthday challenge #6.  For these cards, I used two images from the Tim Holtz set, Travel Blueprint.  I saw the set at work and immediately decided it would work for masculine cards.  Now I have to think of something witty for the inside, but at least the main part of the card is done in time for my oldest son's birthday next week.  Not sure which one I like better.

The paper comes from Stampin Up on both cards.  I used Not Quite Navy card stock and Midnight Muse Ink.

Got to go:  have to be at work at 2 and it's 1:33.  Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Merry Monday Challenge #49

Hello blogger friends!  Last week the Merry Monday Challenge got away from me before the deadline.  I had the day off yesterday so decided to play before it was too late.  This is what I came up with for this week.

I used bashful blue for the background card stock and placed it on a piece of whisper white.  I added some Bo Bunny paper which I matted on brilliant blue (I think!).  My sentiment come from the Inspired by Stamping store, Christmas labels.  Of course, I had to add a bit of bling and some organza ribbon.  What do you think?  I like it!  Have a great day everyone.

Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #45

Hello, blogger friends!  Hope everyone has had a wonderful week as another Friday comes to a close.  I didn't manage to get to IBSIC #44, but here I am for Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #45.  I loved the colors this week and the gorgeous inspiration photo.  My layout for this week from Mojo Monday challenge # 279.

My patterned papers come from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped the Love You from the Fancy Sentiments set by Inspired by Stamping.  The rose also comes from the Inspired by Stamping store:  it was originally pink, and I sponged some riding hood red ink on the petals.  As I was creating this, I was thinking of Valentine's Day, but as I write this, I think it could be a good birthday or thinking of you card, too.  Thanks for the inspiration, Joanna!

And, thank you for stopping by.  I love reading your comments!
