Hip hip hooray it's your birthday! Have a Norse day!

Hi there, thanks for stopping by today.  Today I've got a fun Birthday card to share with you.

I made this recently for a friend in Norway.  The viking is from the My Favorite Things  Viking stamp set. I stamped the viking in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I colored it with Spectrum Noir Markers.  I used  CR10, CR11, CT4, BT2, BT4, BT9, TN7, BG8, IG6, IG8, TN2 and JG6.

The sentiment is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The Hip hip hooray it's your birthday sentiment is from Clearly Besotted stamp set called "Hip Hop Hooray" and the Have a Norse day sentiment is from the My Favorite Things viking stamp set.  For the background I used my Big shot machine and the Retro Circles embossing folder by Tim Holtz Alterations. (Not sure if the Tim Holtz embossing folder is still available, I have linked to a similar one by Kaisercraft)  I dabbed Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the edges of the embossed background to make it pop.

To adhere everything I used the scotch Adv…

Brave, Strong Dad (Beth Duff Designs)

Here we go again with another week, Happy Monday!  I've got a lot to share this coming week.

Today I have a super cute card I recently made for a friend who welcomed his second child.  I feel like the when an event like this happens everyone needs a little bit of encouragement.

For this card I used the solider image from Beth Duff Designs Called "land that I love" it was a free digital stamp with purchase. (not sure if it's still available but I wanted to share this card with you anyways) I chose this image because my friend Tim who I made this for is always wearing camo and the sentiment was perfect to encourage him as a dad. He's a brave guy and very strong and I know he loves his family a lot.   The word dad was from was from the digital stamp set Bearded Dads which was a freebie around Father's Day time.

After printing the solider out on the printer I got to work coloring him.  I used The camo background was some scrapbook paper I had in my collection an…

Hello, Happy Monday! I’ve got a cute card to share with you today. My friend just had their second baby and there first born loves trains. So I wanted to create a card for him. It’s usually moms and dads who get the cards when a new baby arrives. I thought it would be a fun idea to include the big brother in the card giving process too.

I used the stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum.  (It’s retired and sold out at Lawn Fawn but I was able to find it at Stamp n Scrap, a Canadian online crafting shop) 
I stamped all the images in memento tuxedo black ink and colored them with Spectrum noir markers. The banner that says Big brother is from Lawn Fawns plane and simple stamp set and I just wrote the words big brother inside.  
The Spectrum noir colors I used were 
Train: TB5, CR10, CT4, IG4 & BG4 Big Brother Banner: BT5  Bear:TN7, TN8 & EB1
I then used the Sakura jelly roll 08 white pen for highlights on the images.

Riley has been obsessed with fish lately. Our landlords have a pond with Koi Fish in the backyard so that's fun and we recently saw someone fishing down by the river at the park. After that he kept saying Can I go fishing? So we got him the fishing play set from Dollarama for his water table. He's been loving it and it's so cute.

Father’s Day using Beth Duff Designs (a little late)

Hello there,  I know that Father’s Day has come and gone. Though I still wanted to share this Father’s Day card with you all here.  We can definitely honor the special men in our life all year round. This could also make a great birthday card if you switched the sentiments.

For the background I used the Swiss dots Cuttlebug Provo craft embossing folder and ran it through my big shot machine.  I have listed a similar one by Sizzix Tim Holtz in the supplies at the end of my blog.
To color in the hat and ties I used my Spectrum Noir markers. I used the colors BT7, EB1 and TN7. These images and sentiments were from a freebie digital set from Beth Duff Designs.  
To finish off the card I added memento tuxedo black ink to the edges to make it pop.  Then adhered it all together using my scotch advanced tape glider and the X Xryon sticker maker.
