Dies R Us Masculine Challenge

Hi everyone!

Dies R Us Challenge is all about masculine."

Our Challenge Blog

I used some awesome dies from Frantic Stamper:

Frantic Stamper - Dies - Western Cowboy

Frantic Stamper - Dies - Desert Sunset Panel

These make for some great cards!
 I used various colors of alcohol ink papers I had made to piece the Dessert Sun Panel together. The cowboy was cut out in black, and also the frame of the dessert panel. I added the sentiment embossed in white, also from Frantic Stamper.

I hope you will join us!

This is my last week over at the Krafty Chicks challenge. I had lots of fun sharing my cards for the month of May!
The challenge this week is ALL OCCASION.

Grad cards have been on my mind this spring. I feel so sorry for all of those who did not get to have ceremonies and celebrations this year. Who would ever think we would all be going through a pandemic...yikes!

This card is for a kindergarten graduation, and it was fun to make. The dies are from spellbinders, and I used Doodle Bugs "Hats Off" paper pack.

I hope you will all play along, and many thanks to the Krafty Chicks for letting me play along,too. i have enjoyed being a guest designer!

Have a great day,

Paper: SU, Doodlebug Hats Off
Ink: Memento black
Stamps: Taylored Expression
Dies: Spellbinders, Tutti Designs Graduation die for the hat
Other: enamel dots

The Paper Players Sketch Challenge

Leanne has a fun sketch for us at The Paper Players:

I got out an image from Art Impressions and did some coloring with my copics. It's no secret that I ADORE I love this cute! Inside says, "Happy Valentines Day" I'll stash this away for next February. The frame is stamped with Spellbinders Simple Lined Border..I like the way it finished off the card.
