A Case....And My "Baby"

First off, have to start out with this picture from this past Saturday. It was the Homecoming dance for my son's high school. He is in JROTC and was in the saber line for the Homecoming court presentation so had to wear the Class A uniform. That's his date; she's a cutie, she just always looks nervous in pictures. They had a good time at the dance. I was pretty worn out from being chauffeur, first to dinner, then pick them up and take them to the dance. Then back over there at 11:30 when the dance was over and to take his girlfriend home.

I made a few cards over the weekend, just random stuff. Will post over the next couple of days.

Okay, on to the cards. I had come across this card a while back before I ever thought about starting a blog and had saved the info on it. Background and bottom panel are Basic Grey Lilykate; both mounted on light brown CS. I stamped the foliage from Inkadinkado Garden Delight three times in blue, over the panel. I just love this Inkadinkado Birds Galore set. I stamped it once in brown, then again in the blue and cut that bird out and popped it up on tiny dimensionals. Made the wavy bottom with my Coluzzle, then did the same with a narrow dark brown strip and mounted them to the blue panel, and then mounted that to the card. I twisted up some brown tissue paper and then flattened it a bit and cut a "ribbon" and attached it to the sides. Added some bling to the leaves, ribbon and upper corner and called this one done.

Stamps: Inkadinkado Garden Delight and Birds Galore.
Paper: Basic Grey Lilykate, Paper Studio CS.
Ink: Colorbox Queues.
Accessories: Tissue paper, rhinestones, Coluzzle.

I liked this layout so much I made another card, this one just a little different. The base paper is from My Mind's Eye onto which I stamped part of a collage stamp that I had inked up with my Marvy markers. I ran a piece of olive shimmery vellum through the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and mounted that on magenta CS. Stamped part of Inkadinkado flourish stamp after inking it with the markers as well. Cut the tiny flowers with my Cuttlebug then set them on foam and pushed down in the center with an embossing tool to give them a cup shape. Glued them to the flourish, added some beads, then the little outline butterfly sticker. Inked the edges of this piece and mounted to the magenta CS as well and attached to the base. Finally, cut a strip of the magenta with a border punch attached it and added some beads to it as well.

Stamps: Inkadinkado Flourished Flowers.
Paper: My Mind's Eye DP, Paper Studio CS.
Ink: Marvy LePlume II markers.
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Fiskars border punch, beads, outline stickers.
