More birthday cards...

Woo Hoo! I'm a posting machine!!!

This little beauty comes from a great little stamp company in Scotland called Sugar Nellie. She's called "Rope Swing" and although my first stamp came with "rogue rubber" (the pattern at the neck of her dress wasn't deep enough to transfer the image as you'll see if you look *really* closely), Karen sent me a replacement right away, no questions asked. Fabulous customer service...I had to fill another basket just to express my thanks, LOL! Again, she's coloured using Copic markers, but the ovals (sponged a bit heavy-handedly) have been cut using my Creative Memories oval shapes from the Custom Cutting System. This is one of the best "manual" cutting systems I have found - normally I'm a bit "awkward" with manual circle cutters (to put it nicely), but this one cuts like a charm - for me at least! The pierced holes have been done "by eye", so don't look too closely (and if you do, please don't pass judgement!) The brads are from Bazzill. Again, the DP is old DCWV and the cardstock is all SU. The sentiment is a clear acrylic stamp from ??? (I have a few like that) If I had to guess, it would be from a set of many stamps and ink pads and markers that I picked up at Costco years ago. It is cut using an SU oval punch and mounted on the SU tab punch.
This one was going to be a boy card, but once I put this much ribbon on it, I'm thinking it's looking a bit girly. Again, I've pulled out my Sandylion Clear Boy set - fun images, coloured them with my beloved Copic markers and blinged things up a bit with my Copic Spica glitter pens. The ribbons came from a box of assorted ribbon bought at Costco quite some time ago and I've finished things off with one of Martha Stewart's border punches. Cardstock again is SU, DP is old and from a DCWV stack.
