Farmland Masculine Cards

I always like to have an easy card for my Monthly class to make. This is the one. 

This is stamped with the Farmland  3D Shading Stamp from Spellbinders. Stamped on Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock

I used Hazelnut Blend Fusion Ink to stamp and Dark Roast Cardstock for the matting and Dark Roast Fusion Ink for the Sentiment. 

That's all that's to it. Easy Peasy.  I also made one with Thinking of You and Happy Father's Day. My class will have their choice.

Lakeside Card

Here is the first Card for my April Card Class. 
I'm working on making Masculine cards this month since Father's Day is right around the corner. 
I always struggle making masculine cards but Fun Stampers Journey has this great Stamp Set called Lakeside, which makes creating with this set so easy.

All of the background was colored with various colors of Pan Pastels. I used a combination of the Rich Sorbets and Party Pop.
I then stamped the scene from the Lakeside Stamp set using Black licorice Fusion Ink and clear embossing powder

I then filled in more color in the dock, trees, grass and reflections in the water with more pastels. 
Then I mounted it on Black Licorice Cardstock, then onto a white card base.

A Good Day for a Good Day

Here is the first of three cards for my March Card Class.

This card was so much fun to design and put together.  

I started by spraying the card base with Gold Shimmer Spray.
When that dried, I stamped the Wildflower stamp on the bottom using Summer Days True Fusion Ink
Using Whip Cream cardstock, I cut another panel with the Sun Rays Die then stamped the bottom of that with the Wildflowers stamp and Summer Days Ink. 

I cut out a Doily with Whip cream cardstock, and the Doily Die. That was adhered directly to the card base right behind the circle of the Sun Ray Panel. I trimmed of any edges sticking out. 
Then adhered the Sun Ray Panel using Foam Tape to pop it up. 

Using the Pierced Circle from the My Sunshine Die Set, I cut a pierced circle from Mirror Gold Cardstock and attached it to the Sun Ray circle. 

I cut a Butterfly with the Artful Butterfly Die Set in both Blue Lagoon and Cool Pool Cardstock and adhered them together onto the Gold Circle. 

Using the Swirl Tags Die Set, I cut out a tag and stamped the sentiment from Remarkable You Stamp Set and sponged with Blue Lagoon Ink.  A tiny bow was cut fro m Blue Lagoon Cardstock using the NEW Baby Bow Die Set.

I finished the card off with some Gold Sequins and Gold Fashion Pearls on the Butterfly. I brushed Sparkle Silk on the the top layer of the Butterfly.
