fairly recent cards

as soon as I seen this Verve sentiment it pushed me off the fence into ordering from them for the first time to use it with this Unity stamp... I think they go together pretty well. the gal is colored with copic's this is 5 1/2" square in real life, I did pick up other Verve sentiments at the same time and am hoping to play with them soon. 

this was an experimental stamped image that just made it onto a card because, it wasn't that bad.. picked up this noble deer set at a yard sale for 5.00 and it had not been trimmed at all. This is A-6 in real life.

This year I did something I dont normally do, but these were made when it was boiling hot so in an effort to get it done and get out of the attic they all got the same card in the mail this fathers day...

The bases's are gina K leather tan which has a texture to it, the espresso cardstock was run through a herringbone folder in the bigshot. the deer was stamped with Versafine on Neenah and the pale green is also from Neenah. these are 5 1/2" square in real life. 

Art Impressions Stamps, the birdbrain Chick was colored with Copic's and cut out. just for laugh's I've had the sentiment for years and just got around to getting this chick. ( which I resemble every time we go to a Ren Faire ) lol, This is 6" Square in real life. The printed papers are from Graphic45's french country line photo corners are from Pioneer.

This guy cracks me up... and was a challenge to color, not real crazy about the train but, this was a first try. (eta: the shading on the metal parts of the train will have to google some soon and see what real train's look like) he was stamped on Neenah and colored with copic's and metalic markers and cut out. the sentiment is an older hampton arts dollar bin stamp. this is 6" square in real life. the printed papers are from Diecuts with a view and hunt and gather line from Kaiser craft.

this sentiment ( IO ) I've had for years because, it made me grin... no clue what to do with it, then I seen they had this book background recently and picked one up during the last sale so ... ta-da it was a Use-able stamp... lol we wont count how many have not been played with yet eh? this is 6" square in real life.

Just a closer look, for Lane McGregor. ( his parents should have received this one in the mail already) 

Its 6" square in real life the stitched looking square is from Daisy D's the dotted mat and the quilted mat are from Die Cuts With a View. the onesie is an MFT die and the elephant is an Martha Stewart punchie. The sentiments from Hero Arts and cut with an Spellbinders tag die. The lace is vintage and the ribbon is from WalMart a few years ago.

just for fun, the colors are not my usual. this ones 5 1/2" square in real life. the sentiment is from SU the gal is from Saturated Canary. the printed papers are scraps. 

some diamond glaze on her eyes and yellow and stardust stickles on the dress.
