this saturday afternoons cards

Stamps are a funny thing, if you pay attention to the retired ones and the way the prices go up and down... this sail boat is an PSX one that i (i know you know what i am going to type next) won on ebay last week ( for next to nothing...)this week its back to normal with psx prices going higher and higher again... *Sigh* the cloud bar is from Stampscapes as is the small water ripples. the sentiments from Penny Black. this is all stamped on a scrap piece of printed blue green paper. the Huge brads are from Imaginisce, the hemp strings from Walmart (bead isle) the papertrey ink spring moss cardstock has fresco blue grotto chalk ink dragged along the torn edge. the cardbase is SU blue bayou. this is 5X7 in real life.
This is an wish rak image from the su set called Sweet Herbs... ( I'm gonna win this one some day lol) the sentiments from Darcies... colored with pencils of course. the mat is a piece of cream cardstock that has some walnut ink tintz (moss and verdigris) on it, then the SU print pattern and the catslife press 5 diamonds were overstamped on it when it was dry. the edges have tea dye distress on them. now this is something i just don't do. those mini brads are showing inside the card. yep, figured that fit right in with the distressed and dirty look of the whole thing... its 5X7 in real life. The green cardbase is unknown, but what ever it is Ive had it forever it was the bottom sheet in the dark green envelope i have and it was slightly sticking out of the end, both sides of that end where its been sticking out are faded and yucky.
just a simple one, Penny Black hedgehog stamped on GP110 and colored with pencils, TAC sentiment. the dark green mat is a scrap from the card above, the pale green is PTI spring moss. the red sparkly cardbase is a premade card from DMD industries. this is A-2 in real life.
Fun fun stuff, this Penny Black hedgie came to me this week via wish rak from Mrsclark2001 (Thanks Teresa!) Its cut with the largest of the long rectangle nestibilitie dies then i trimmed it a little more with a paper trimmer so it would have more of the scalloped mat peeking out. the sentiments from the SU set called more happy returns. the printed paper is from a co. that makes outdoors papers ( have to go back upstairs and find the name) but its two sided and the other side is geared towards scrapbooking as it has a 12 inch cartoon fish hook on it... ( I bought it for this side lol) Card Base is Bazzill. and its 5X7 in real life.
Just a quickie from scraps of the card above, the Monkey is an PIF image from Christina13, colored with pencils. the sentiments from the SU set more happy returns. ( got this from Alice's recent party still debating if i will ever unmount these and put this and so many sayings onto single blocks ) probably not. inked with an brown tomobo marker. this one is 4 1/2" x6" in real life.
This is an wish rak image that i received recently from sbs81 ( Thanks Stephanie!!) now this is a maybe card... maybe i can send it to a lady having a girl baby, maybe that would be too strange since its not a baby and she's holding a puppy... the pink cardbase is something i picked up at staples earlier in the week its flat cardstock in a 5X7 size ( ten sheets for 4.99) ouch. This pink is very similar in color to the papertrey ink sweet blush color. the almost amethyst cardstock and the image were die cut with long rectangles. the ribbons from Offray. and wraps through the inside of the card. if you are like me and you always always tie your bows upside down, you can bend the card a bit and slide the bow off and then turn it around and slip it back on... just so you know. ;) Sentiments from SU (but don't ask me which set, possibly so very but not sure on that)
Another Wish Rak kitty card. This is one that Janice (catcrazy) sent to me.. Thanks Janice!Its colored with Prisma Pencils, I did not trim this one at all so thats on a full quarter sheet. the whole card is 5X7 in real life, green mat is PTI spring Moss, the grey textured cardbase is Bazzill, ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Sentiments from Hero Arts.
