My son's birthday is tomorrow. It is so hard for me to make cards for people I love. I always want the card to be perfect. Well this is not perfect but I hope he will like it. The paper behind the whale is photo paper colored with alcohol inks. I used Steam and Demin. After it was dry, I stamped the whale.

I think this was my favorite. The set for the flowers is Doodle this. The words and flourish are from the Yummy set. The technique here is to punch a hole in the center of the flower. take ribbon and fold it in half. Stick a bit of the ribbon through the whole and the ribbon becomes the center and leaves of the flowers. The flowers were colored with a water brush and the ink.
I don't' know the stamp names for this one but all the supplies were Stampin Up supplies. The leader had the floral paper flipped over and used the pink polka dot paper up but I liked the floral. One girl in class turned it on the side and I really liked that but my adhesive was too good to change it.
This will be the last one for now. I like the colors it is a new Stampin Up set. Really cute set with stuff to put in the wagon. I changed mine up some from the demonstrator so it is kind of my own thing. If you get this set, you might want to trim it closer than the precut stamps. It left marks around the image so I cut out the image and used the word strip punch to punch out the words.
I hope you are inspired.

In the continuing alphabet swaps for JustCards, this is my lizard card. It is a gecko but a gecko is a lizard. I colored this with colored pencils. I used the mineral spirits in a few areas to smooth out the colors but mostly the paces were too small to do much with it. The stamp is made by Taylored Artwork. The card is smaller than an A2 size. I got the lizard done but couldn't figure out what to do with the blank space on each side of the lizard so I just cut down the card.
