cards for the boys

Hello there.  Sorry again for the month long absence but time just kinda zooms by too quick these days - must be getting old.  Talking of which, July was both mine and DH's birthday and this is the card I made him :D

The fab image is a Kenny K rubber stamp by Whimsy.  Coloured in with Copics and I've given her sparkly lips with Sakura glitter pen but it's not showing in the photos.  Speech bubble is a fab die & stamp set by MFT and I've just typed and printed the sentiment out.  I've cut the image out using nesties heart die and stamped  around her with a Magnolia 'love' print stamp using pink distress ink.  Flower made by using Sizzix tattered floral die on some faux leather & mesh fabrics and adding a big gem brad for the centre.

Another boy card I made since my last post was for my nephew.  So this one's more wholesome :).  It was a bit of a last minute job and being a teenager now I had no clue what to buy him so it was good old cash, hence I incorporated a pocket into the card to hold it;
Image on this one is one of the stamps from the Creeper Crew kit (The Greeting Farm) which again, I've coloured with Copics and added some shimmer to his hair and belt buckle with Sakura glitter pen.  The card and pocket was just a cream textured cardstock which I've sponged with distress ink to make it look like denim and I've just randomly stamped some birthday text and icons all over it.  Used the speech bubble die again and added some twil ribbon and brads to finish.

I've got another card and a little crochet project I also finished in July but will schedule those for later.  Till then,
