Riley Flies With Balloons

I had so much fun creating this card for several reasons: 1) It is my dad's birthday card. Always a blast! 2) I {heart} using Riley stamps! 3) I was creative! The Riley Plane image from Hanna Stamps is a fairly long stamp with a blank banner attached to the back of the airplane. I'm not a huge fan of the banner...seems a bit too small to include a message. I haven't experimented with it much, so in time I may change my mind. ;) Dad loves planes, so this will be a perfect fit.

Stamps: Riley Airplane (Hanna Stamps), Cupcake Birthday (SU), Cupcakes Sentiment (Inkadinkado)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo, Palette Noir, Bashful Blue
Paper: Archiver's Red, Basic Grey DP, Very Vanilla, PTI White

Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Black Photo Pen, Copics

Pin-up Be Mine & Some Liam Pics

Just finished making Mitch's Valentine's Day card. I wanted to try something a bit different this year. lol. Hanna Stamps has a set called Pin-Up that gave me that extra something that I was looking for. Her clothes were stamped onto patterned paper used in the base, cut out and glued over the stamped image. SCS Technique Challenge 207
Please excuse the accidental placement of the bikini top dot. One of those things one doesn't think about until one is admiring their handiwork. Oops.

Stamps: Pin-Up (Hanna Stamps), Heart Patterns (PTI)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo
Paper: Bittersweet (Basic Grey)l White (PTI)
Accessories: Martha Stewart Lattice Punch, Word Window Punch, Copics, Making Memories Ribbon, Martha Stewart Heart Gems, Nestabilities

Key to My Heart

I had a blast stepping out of my comfort zone on this one. This my non-traditional spin on a Valentine's Day card. I purchased this Inkadinkado set not knowing if it would be something I could actually create something I would like. (Sorry...can't remember the name of the set.) 40% off of a stamp set can persuade us to try most anything. lol!

Stamps: Inkadinkado
Ink: Memento Tuxedo
Paper: DP (DCWV), White (PTI), Black
Accessories: Heart Gem (Martha Stewart), Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Nestabilities
