I love this wagon stamp from Heartfelt Creations.  This simple card follows the sketch from My Favorite Things.  Since I have several male family and friends celebrating birthdays in the next few months, I decided to make some masculine cards for challenges.Craft card stock is perfect for this. I stamped the wagon and the sentiment on some dp with versa mark ink and embossed it with black embossing powder. The card base was embossed with a barbed wire embossing folder, and three button die cuts  replaced the flower in  the sketch.  You can see other cards using this sketch here.


You are my Sunshine

This is a card for the challenge at Impression Obsession "You are my Sunshine".
I started with craft card stock which I  embossed  with A Darce embossing folder and adhered it to a slightly larger piece of black card stock.   Next, I cut a second strip from craft card stock and embossed it with Darce  grass embossing folder.  After I sponged that piece with tea die and  walnut distressed inks,I adhered it to a slightly wider strip of black card stock.   I cut yellow and blue circles using Spellbinder Dies and positioned the sea shells which were sponged with Memento desert sand and rich cocoa.  I finished with some sea birds. I placed the final pieces on an A2 card base.
The Impression Obsession dies I used are DIE078-F Sea Birds and 
Sea Shells Code: DIE077-W
