Birthday Love

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 really love that this background paper shows the words "poser" and "selfie"!
Patterned papers are Molly by Bella Blvd and Dotty by CTMH; Stamp set is Birthday Love by Art Impressions.  Copic markers.

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:


Stamps are Tim Holtz Beer Blueprints & Happy Thoughts by Verve; Cardstock is Chocolate & White Daisy; Your Next Stamp Gumdrops; Patterned paper is Oh Canada! by Photoplay.

Sugar Pea Designs challenge #43

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:
