Lynn offered to let me borrow several stamp sets that she thought might help out, one of which is Stampin' Up's Classic Pickups. These images are perfect for my stepson. Here's what I came up with for him:
Still in the mood to make another card, I checked out the Inspiration challenge on SCS which is this gorgeous Tea and Roses website. I love decorative boxes, so I chose these beautiful nested hat boxes as my inspiration piece. Obviously, this website called for a feminine theme. Okay. Okay. I know. It's not achieving my goal of getting my masculine birthday cards done, but I just couldn't resist, especially since Lynn also loaned me her Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.
I stamped the flowers onto SU pink pirouette dp, cut them out, sponged the edges in pink pirouette and pretty in pink, colored the stamens with white gel pen, and rolled some of the edges for dimension. I lightly stamped the larger Fifth Avenue Floral image on the background of the pink pirouette cs. Ooooo! I jes luvs purty, girly things.
Well, I need to sign off. Hubby and I are off to visit some friends. I'll be back!!! Happy Saturday to you!
