Day at the Beach by Pickled Potpourri

It is summer and time for vacation and relaxing on the beach.  This is the perfect combination of digital images to create a scene of your choice.  The digital stamp sets are Beachy Keen and Day at the Beach by Pickled Potpourri.  I colored the images with Copic markers and used some sand-looking background patterned paper, red matting for the images and cut die letters with red cardstock.  You can find these images here and here

Hunting and Camping

Today I am featuring three digital stamp sets from Pickled Potpourri. 

This first card uses all three sets, Hunting, Hunting Fowl, and Campfire. (See stamp sets below).   I've made a flit-it card and sized the images small to fit on the squares.  I colored them with chalks this time.  The paper is from my stash and I've added buttons with scrappers floss in them. The card is die cut with a Sizzix Framelit flip-it die by Stephanie Bennard.

The second card  uses Hunting and Hunting Fowl.  I embossed the background blue cardstock and cut out the images with a die before chalking them.  The ribbon and buttons accent the card. Both of these cards make nice guy cards for birthday or other occasions.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope you are inspired to use your creativity.

Red Rubber Inspirational #128 - Anything Goes

It is time for another Inspirational Challenge from Red Rubber Inspirationals, led by Lynda.  This week it is "Anything Goes".  A new stamp set, Take Pride, from  Red Rubber Designs is available in pre-cut foam mounted rubber.  For my graduation card I've used Winchester cardstock and patterned paper by Red Rubber Designs, along with the large eyelet on the tag.  The image is stamped on cream cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Trendy Greetings.  I added 3 silver brads and a blue chiffon ribbon.  I stamped the border of elephants with Palette Burnt Umber and the other images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  

Here's a close up photo.

Red Rubber Inspirational #126 - Getting Krafty

Mary Anne leads the Red Rubber Inspirational #126 this week, Getting Krafty.  My sample card for this challenge uses Kraft cardstock as the base.  I stamped the background and focal images with stamps from Every Road by Red Rubber Designs using Palette Burnt Sienna Ink.  I added some brown twill ribbon, burlap ribbon and buttons as accents.  I thought this would be a good birthday card for a man.

Hope you will pull out your Kraft cardstock and create something fun for the challenge.  You can enter here.

Secret Code by Pickled Potpourri

Secret Code and Secret Code Words by Pickled Potpourri makes a really fun card.  This digital set has lots of images that can be combined for a cute children's card, or for a man.  I made a birthday card with mine, using an inside birthday sentiment.  The images are all colored with Copic Markers, and then I used Crystal Effects on the magnifying glass to give it reality.  The man's image was cut with a Spellbinders die.

I hope you enjoy this comical card.  You can find the digital stamps here and here.
