Popeil Pocket Fisherman

This card just reminded me of that little fold up fishing rod that was advertised on TV many years ago.

I think it will make a great card for my FIL's birthday.

Playing with Outlines Stamps

I have had this Outlines stamp for 6 months and finally put it to use. I only stamped it twice, and just cut the inside layers that would not show, to get the dimentions. The colouring was done with SU watercolour crayons.

Cheery and Bright

These Doodlebug Design papers jumped off the shelf and into my hands the other day. I am in the middle of making an altered clipboard out of them too. I 'll post that when the mod podge dries.

Some more Valentine cards

I have been playing a bit more with some hearts!

This pocket heart was sent to norma for the Inkstainers mingle.

This card was made using a Stampingzoo retro heart. The background is one from the former Inkstains site.

Copy Cat!

This card is one I had to try after seeing janacb's on SCS. I followed her directions, as follows: The stamp was inked in versamark, then I took a marker and coloured the trunks and the "ground" black before I stamped it on the glosssy card stock. Then I embossed with holographic ep. The background was done after the stamping, using a cosmetic wedge. Pink, gray and navy inks were used.

Some of my latest cards

It has been a while since I posted some cards here. Christmas is over and I have started making cards to add to "my stash" and trying some new stamps.

This card uses the StampinUp Apple Cider paper and the true Friend set. I think I will get a lot of use out of both!

I have been playing with some valentine pocket cards and this is one of them. I found the template on Splitcoast Stampers. I have another one made but it is for a mingle and and I don't want to spoil the surprise. I'll post it after she receives the card
