A friend asked me to make a birthday card for her one year old grandson. I made a few so she could choose the one she liked best. I saw this stamp from A Muse Arts that said "Happy birthday little dude!" and thought that would be cute for any little boy cards. So here are the cards that I made. I also bought some clear stamps (because they were cheap!), and by stamping them in VersaMark first and then in the colored ink, they actually turned out pretty well. I wasn't nearly as frustrated as before. I'm making baby steps, here. :)
This card uses Karen Foster Designs cardstock stickers, Cosmo Crickets Mr. Campy patterned paper, and the A Muse stamp on the inside. The "Spend Your Day" part was just printed and then I used some Tim Holtz distressed ink on the paper.
This card uses stamps from KaiserCraft, Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy and Jillibean Soup patterned paper. I used Liquid Applique to puff out the trail behind the airplane, and Labels 1 Nestabilities.
This last card doesn't look too much like a little boy card, I know. She told me that he likes to play the drums and I couldn't come up with anything for drums. So I went with music notes instead. The stamps are from We R Memory Keepers and A Muse. Paper is Jillibean Soup. I also used some nestabilities for the rectangles.
So, which one would you pick? She actually picked my favorite -- the playin' in the mud card.
I keep thinking it's Friday, which is making this week seem a little long. So, have a happy THURSDAY!
A few "Pieces of Me": I organize already organized things because I think it's fun. I enjoy paper crafting (scrapbooking, card making, gluing paper, coloring pictures, and so on). I am teaching myself how to sew. It frustrates me to no end. (But, I enjoy it quite a bit.)
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
