Zoo and Pirates!

My dear nephews (my brother’s boys) both have birthdays in July! So I had some fun with making their cards this year.

Lincoln turned 3, and I just knew my Paper Smooches zoo stamps (and a few others) would make a perfect card for him!

His (current) favorite color is green, so I added green chevron paper behind his die-cut name. This is such a happy card!

His brother, Carter, turned 5 and so I put together a fun pirate card for him!

I just love those fish jumping over the pirate ship into the glittery water! So fun!

Super Lann

I made this card for my husband for his birthday a while back, but it seems like it could be a bit of a patriotic card doesn’t it? So I decided to post it today.

I just love this Super set from Paper Smooches. When I saw it I knew I had to get it to make a card for my husband! He loves all things superman and we even call him “Super-Lann.” He’s a leap year baby, so a couple birthdays ago he turned 12 (again) and we had a super hero birthday party for him. We even had a super hero obstacle course…I wish I had pictures to post! But for now, this card will have to do.

I used gold foil for the body…awesome! Then I paper pieced back on the boots, head and hands and colored them with colored pencil. Hard to tell in this picture, that is a glitter heart above the super hero guy.

Love how this card turned out and it made my hubby laugh! :)

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to all my friends in America! It is a beautiful day to celebrate and today my little Paper Smooches monster wanted to get in on the fun. So this card was born:

I used my distress inks and distress markers to watercolor. You may not be able to tell in this picture, but there are embossed stars behind that little monster. Isn’t he cute?
