Three Cheers

Hi friends! Three cheers for a new card.  Last Friday, I uploaded a few new and new-ish digital sets to the shop.  A couple that had been on my calendar to reintroduce/redesign, and one that partially came from a set I had designed to release in stamp form, before plans changed.

That set is the  Land of Liberty DIGITAL Set, which I used today. I pulled out some patriotic papers and started layering until I had a layout I liked.  Then I added the cup, which I colored with Arteza real brush markers. I forgot to pint on smooth bristol, so the blending with the markers was terrible.  But I was snuggled up on the couch with a sick boy while coloring, so didn't bother to reprint.  I did eventually pull out some copic markers to help even out the coloring a bit and it turned out okay in the end. The sentiment is also from Land of Liberty and I cut it out with the Rounded Rectangle Die. I finished with a border cut with the Lacey Trim Duo Die Set and a couple rhinestone stars to accent the mug.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. The sickness Kellan caught seems to be taking over the family one person at a time. :(  The boys graduate Kindergarten one week from today, and I'm thinking there might not be much school for them between now and then!

If Not for the Last Minute

Hi friends! I'm popping in with this quick little Father's Day card I made last night. I don't know how I always seem to be one card short the night before a holiday, but somehow it always happens. Kellan has been super sick and so I colored the duck image from Just Like You with copics while I "watched" Treehouse Detectives with Kellan.

After coloring, I ran upstairs and die cut the sentiment and the colored image, matting with black circle die cuts.  For the layout I went with a paper that had some of the orange of the bill in it, then picked another orange paper and cut with the Flourished Tag Die Set. I cut one more tag die from black and offset it to give it just a thin mat at the bottom, then layered everything together and was on my way. Probably one of the quickest cards I've ever made.

I'm taking Trevor to our family get-togethers today and Mark is staying home with a feverish Kellan. He gets the Dad of the Year award for spending a good portion of Father's Day weekend mopping up vomit. Hope this is something Kellan doesn't share with the rest of us!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day.
