Touch of Nature

Touch of Nature stamp set from Amuse, cardstock from
Gina K Designs, Distress Ink, sequins from Amuse,
clear detail embossing powder.
I had been wanting to challenge myself to making a one layer
card. They always feel so unfinished to me. I love this stamp
set from Amuse and the saying is appropriate for what
my daughter and I have been talking about lately.
So I snuck away to my craft room while everyone was
either sleeping or occupied on Saturday and
played away. I am pleased with the results, but do still
feel that it is somewhat unfinished. I have to keep
working on these I guess.

Frog Birthday

Retired TAC stamp set, Joy Found, (now available
at Red Rubber Designs), Amuse Cardstock,
designer paper Just Like Dad from TAC (retired),
Dazzles Happy Birthday sentiment from Hot Off The Press,
ribbon from my stash, and Copic markers.
I have always loved this stamp set and found it recently
when cleaning out my stamp room. My grandson's
birthday was Sept 13 and he asked for a frog collection
jar for his birthday from his parents. (Glad them and not me!).
Anyway I thought this card was perfect for him. I really
had a lot of fun stamping and coloring it. Also happy
to be using some of the items I have on hand.

Tools Happy Birthday Card

Bazzill and Neena cardstock, designer paper from MME,
Tool Die Cuts from Dynamics, and Dazzels
stickers from Hot Off The Press.
My son's birthday was on Sept 7th, and I cannot believe he is
now 34 yrs old! He is a wonderful man and son, and
he loves to fix and build things so this card was
perfect for him.
I had so much fun making the card, you can mix and match
some of the pieces so it looks more realistic. I am
very happy with the way it turned out.
Here is a picture of the inside of the card.
Life has been crazy for me for a while now, but hopefully I
will not be gone so long this time!
