House Mouse Birthday Card for Phoebe

Back in February 2009 I made a house mouse card, and although I was happy with the main image I wasn't to happy with the rest of it. So, as it was my sons' girlfriend Phoebe' birthday I decided to revamp the card and give it to her. The first image is the original card...

The rubber stamp used inside the card is from GCS artstamp called "Loves me not". The sentiments are computer generated. My logo and text on the back are rubberstamps. Now I'm happy with the card, but I think I like the box more :o)

Take care & Keep Smiling

Birthday Card For My Dad - 2011

I made this card for my Dads' birthday which was in September. It's a pretty simple. The backing papers were made using Stampendous "Music Score" rubber stamp . Using VersafineOnyx Black, Toffee and Deep Lagoon ink pads for the stamp and Tim Holtz' Distress ink pads - Frayed Burlap, Antique Linen, Broken China,Pumice Stone and Chipped Sapphire. The main image is a clear stamp from Butterfly Kisses "Musical Collage". Stamped with Versafine Toffeeand Onyx Black. The swirls were gone over with a gold gel pen, the musical symbols were gone over 4 times with Black Sakura Gelroll pen. The musical notes were hand cut and heat embossed. card.
The quote book inside was computer generated and the swirl is a stamp by La Blanche "Flourish". And I used some rub ons. Now I've told you the boring bits here's the card...

Take care & keep smiling :o)
