Birthday card

This card was inspired by Summer Card Camp 2 with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner.  It uses the color combo for week 3 and one of the sketches.
Also, since it's a birthday card, I'm entering it in Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.
The background was made by using two Impression Obsession cover a card stamps, one inked in pool and the other in raspberry.

Color of Summer week 6-Sage and Sepia

The final colors chosen for the Summer of Color challenge were sage and sepia. I couldn't resist adding the pink.  All stamps are from My Favorite Things and the paper is Echo Park.

Good to be Green

Good to be Green is the challenge this week over at Simon Says Stamp.  This could be interpreted as recycling or using the color green.  I chose to go with the color.  Stamps are Unity stamps and the dies are from Spellbinders.

Candy Apple Red and Yellow

Hello.  I'm back for week 5 of the Color of Summer challenge.  This week we were to use Candy Apple Red and Yellow.  I would be first to admit that this is not a color scheme I would choose on my own, but I really like how my card turned out.  The flower is a stamp from Crafter's Companion.  I painted it with H2O's in a pretty red to match the color scheme.  I'm not a flower person, so I don't know if dahlias really come in the color, but I like it anyway.  The yellow comes from an Echo Park patterned paper pad.

Another Birthday card

I'm taking Summer Card Camp 2 from On Line card classes with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner.  They shared this color combo and some sketches for week 1.  I'm also entering this in Simon Says Stamp challenge, which was to use a little stamp, or a small part of a larger stamp.  The three circle images are small stamps.  Stamps are from Just Rite (backgrounds), Crafter's Companion (words) and Gina K (small stamps).

Summer of Color Week 4

The colors this week were pale pink and charcoal gray at the Color of Summer challenge.  I made this birthday card.  Stamp is from My Favorite Things.  I used a sketch from Papercrafts Magazine.

Masculine Birthday card

Here is a birthday card that I made for my brother-in-law.  This card was inspired by both a class challenge in May Flaum's Camp Scrap 2013 class and a card I saw in Papercraft's Magazine.  May had made a tag using paint through a stencil and that's what I did on the bottom of this card.  I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and Distress paint.
The palm tree stamp is from Heartfelt Creations, as is the patterned paper.  The sentiment is from Gina K. I'm entering this in Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge.
