Fishing Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday!  I have a masculine birthday card to share with you that uses a stamp set from Gina Marie Stamps called Fishing Stamps.
I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped images and a sentiment from that stamp set on it using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my Stamp Perfect tool.  I die cut a square around the focal images with the GMD Up & Down In & Out Cut Square die set.  I then colored the fish with colored pencils and inked up water using a torn piece of paper and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.
The whole white area was cut with a GMD Stitched Rectangle die.  The square with the fish was popped up with scotch foam tape for extra dimension.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

The World Is Your Oyster Card

Hello crafty friends!  Today I have another card to share with you that uses Gina Marie Designs dies from Scrapbook Outlet.  

I used the GMD Spring Flower Arrangements Dies cut from white cardstock.  I also embossed them using a rubber embossing mat in my Big Shot.  They were the perfect accent to the saying and papers from DCWV's Blue China stack.
A silver doily, blue crinkled seam binding, and enamel dots from GMD Iris Sparkle and GMD Sophisticated sets were the finishing touches!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Victorine Originals Challenge ~ Mood Board #11

Happy Friday! Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of "Pearls and Lace". Here is what I created for inspiration!
This card uses the VO Wedding Couple Silhouette (or the Wedding Clear Polymer set) and VO Elegant Sayings stamp set.  I used a GMD stitched rectangle die for stamping the couple on and a GMD crochet lace oval die for the sentiment.
The pretty patterned papers are from DCWV's Fairytale Dreams stack.  I embellished with White Nuvo Crystal Drops, Totally Black Trendy Twine, and washi tape.
Here is the wonderful mood board for the current challenge:

Chandelier Card

Good morning!  Today I am sharing this simple yet elegant chandelier card.
I used the GMD Chandelier Flourish die and GMD Sophisticated enamel dots with papers from the DCWV Wedding stack.  I wrapped the patterned paper panel with black grosgrain ribbon.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps' Everyday Greetings set.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
