I have a friend at work who brings me a coffee every time we work a Saturday together... and I bring her a card. She's a tennis player, so I pulled out an old Art Impressions favourite - Birthday Love and put a couple of cards together. They are both versions of what I've done with this set in the past, but worth sharing again:

I have a couple of manly cards to share with you today... I own these stamps in the miniature versions, but my niece has them in the lovely large size, so I stamped a couple of them when we were crafting together last week:

I am very happy to be playing along with the Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up challenge for May! I recently got their new release stamp set Parisian Holiday, along with the Paris Cityscape die. My daughter spent her fall semester in France this year along with a few of her friends, so these were the perfect items to add to my craft room:
I started off by creating my background with several Distress Oxide inks, then I die cut the skyline in masking paper and put the negative down on the paper. I used the same colours to ink around the diecut, leaving a darker skyline. The jeune fille & her suitcase are coloured in Copics and mounted with pop dots, and I added a few pale pink sequins for a little sparkle.
I used the challenge sketch, and the photo for my colour inspiration:

I have three co-workers that work with me at the library on Thursday evenings... and their initials are P, B & J. So when I got this stamp set recently from Sugar Pea Designs, I decided to make them each a card to decorate their work spaces:

I found some time to create a second card for the 2018 Spring & Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop tonight! My niece was here visiting this week, and brought along this great stamp set from Concord & 9th for me to try... and I bought some new Simple Stories papers to go with it. I made two of them!
I used the Fusion sketch & photo as my inspiration!
Patterned papers are Oh Baby! by Simple Stories; Stamp set is Concord & 9th; Dies are MFT Circle STAX & From the Heart by Verve; Cocoa ink is Memento; Copic markers.

If you scroll back a few posts, you'll see my efforts using the Tim Holtz Wine Blueprint Minis... and today I'm doing the Beer Minis version. I again pulled out some Distress Oxide inks for the backgrounds, using Twisted Citron, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon & Blueprint Sketch. The edging dies are the Spellbinder's Hemstitched Rectangles:
