Stamping Super Powers

 Hello! 

Memorial day will be here in just a few short weeks.  I know for many it marks the start of the summer season.  I'm not going to lie... I'm so excited for the BBQs, warm weather, and flip flops.    I always think it is important to remember the actual reason for the holiday as well.  It is to remember and thank all the people who have died and served our wonderful nation. I have some family and friends that are currently serving in our armed forces.  I made them some cards so they would get some happy mail in the next few weeks.  I hope this inspires you to use your crafty super powers and get out your patriotic stamps and do the same.  

Happy Crafting, 

Chris

Cancer Sucks

 Hello! 

No one likes making these cards but sadly we all have friends and family that are battling cancer.   I'm always on the lookout for stamps to make cards that I can show support and most importantly make them smile.  I love this new set from Technique Junkies.   It has a little mix of everything.    I added glitter to the ribbon on the second card.  I'm not sure if I like it or not.  What do you think?

Getting Back Into the Fold

 Hello

I love fun folds.  It has been a while since I've had some time to play so I started off with a simple one.  This is just a standard z-fold pattern.    I found this really pretty floral paper in a paper pad I had.  I thought it captured the essence of this woman perfectly.  She just looks so free and happy.  I hope that comes across in the card design as well.  




Copic Colors used:

Red: R37, R35, R32, R30.    I added some clear wink of stella to add some sparkle.
