Baseball Birthday

Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps baseball set, cardstock
from my stash, and brads from Gina K Designs.
I have 2 nephews who have birthdays coming up in October.
They both love to play baseball and have been on teams
over the summer. I thought these would make good cards
for them, and it was so simple to make.
I hope they enjoy it as much as I did making it!

Masculine Birthday

All products are from Gina K -Birthday Greetings stamp set,
Grateful heart stamp set, and Casual Friday paper pack.
I used the Epiphany Crafts custom button tool and tied it with twine.
Self stick ribbon I had on hand, Versamark and gold embossing powder.

I have 2 brother-in-laws with birthdays in October and thought this
would make a good masculine card. I had a lot of fun
using the different products, tools, and techniques to make this card.
Quick and easy!

from Gina K Designs, butterflies from a Thank You stamp set from TAC,
Versamark, and Kaleidoscope and Memento inks.
I love the look of the Kaleidoscope and black inks on glossy

birthday card.

You Make My Heart Bloom

Amuse Cardstock and inks, Hero Arts Fancy Lace Die,
Gina K's You Make My Heart Bloom stamp, colored pencils,
blending pen, Paper Wishes Lace and Doilies Dazzles,
ribbon and pearls from my stash, and glitter pen.
I had so much fun making this card and trying new and old
techniques! I started by placing Dazzles strips vertically and sponge
inking them w/Amuse inks. I then removed the Dazzles and cut the sponged
cardstock in strips of 3 colors each. I then placed it on pink cardstock
and bordered it with Paper Wishes Dazzles.
I die cut the Fancy Lace die and glued it to white cardstock. I used colored
pencils and blending pens to color it in.
The rest is pretty self explanatory, but what fun to make.

Amuse cardstock, Doodle Pantry designs and paper,
Spellbinders dies, Lucky 8 Punch, Gelly Roll
glitter pen, and pearls and ribbon from my stash.
I couldn't wait for one of my best friends to become a Grandma
so that I could send her this card! I just love this digital
design by Doodle Pantry and thought it made a beautiful baby
girl card. I am so happy for her being a Grandma and hope
she loved this card.

Harvest of Wishes

Most of the products used on this card are from Gina K Designs
Stamp TV Kit -Grateful Heart. I used Harvest of Wishes, and
Autumn Blessings stamps sets from the kit, Copic markers
to color the images, and Spellbinders
dies for the greeting.
I cannot believe that summer is basically over!! I am now thinking
about making fall and holiday cards. As you can tell I love the
Grateful Heart Stamp TV set by Gina K. I am thinking
that I may use this as my Thanksgiving card.

Only God

All supplies used for this card were from Gina K Designs,
A Grateful Heart Stamp TV Kit,  other than the
pearls which I had on hand already.
I have loved this stamp ever since I saw cards made with
it by 2 of my best friends.Thanks for the inspiration
Donna and Shirley!! I wasn't sure how I was going
to use it and was waiting for inspiration.
I am pleased with the final outcome.
Hope you like it.

Gather Strength

Bazzill cardstock from my stash, Bazzill flowers,
Doodle Pantry Pitcher and Basin digital images and papers,
Spellbinders dies, brads and ribbon from my stash.
My daughter was recently going through a tough time
in her schooling and relationship and I wanted to send her
a card. I loved this sentiment and the fragileness of the
pitcher and basin. I felt it was perfect for lifting
her spirits.
