Nature's Greeting Deer by Pickled Potpourri

A favorite image of mine is Nature's Greeting Deer by Pickled Potpourri.  It makes a great male card for a birthday or Father's Day or even just thinking of you.  I've cut out the image with a Spellbinders circle die and inked the background with a sponge.  I've used woodgrain patterned paper for the card background and added some burlap ribbon and a multi-colored brown ribbon.  It is a simple card but shows up the image well. 
Pickled Potpourri has lots of nice images.  Visit them and see which ones you like best.

Red Rubber Inspirational #204 Focused on Stamping Anything Goes

This week on Red Rubber Inspirationals, Lynda leads a challenge that is stamping focused, but the theme can be anything.  I'm joining the challenge with this sweet swan set called Swans Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs.  I've made an anniversary card.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs, and the heart frame die cut is Spellbinders Heart Squares.  I colored the image with Copic markers, using a cloud template and sponge to make the sky with Palette ink.  The background patterned cardstock is from my stash of remnants, and I added two jewels.

Shy Skunks by Pickled Potpourri

Here are two cards I made with this adorable digital image from Pickled Potpourri called Shy Skunks.  The first card is a flip it card by Spellbinders.

The inside sentiment is Sophisticated Sentiments by Red Rubber Designs, plus a computer generated saying, "You are so stinking cute!".  The patterned paper is from the Blooming Garden Collection by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I've added jewels and a ribbon for embellishment.
The second card with Shy Skunks is below.  It has background paper embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that says Happy Birthday, and I cut out the image with Lacey Squares Nestablilites by Spellbinders. The sentiments is computer generated.
  Both card images are colored with Copic Markers.
