I made my father’s day cards today with my new Imagine.  It was so nice to not have to cut all the little pieces of paper in different colors. All I did was pick my design and then fill the different stages with color.  I wrote the inside on the computer.  My sons are always doing everything for everybody; I thought these fit them perfectly.  I used the Cuttlebug gears embossing folder on the second one along with a Tim Holtz die.

 Here is a list of the Cartridges I used:
Better Together for the colors
Robots for the figures

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.  Have a wonderful day.

This weekend I had a chance to make a few cards for operation write home and use them for the Throwback Thursday challenge at my creative time, see the web link on the side bar. I only used one Cartridge this time Botanicals.

The first card I also added a SU die cut for the butterflies and a little bling for their bodies.

The second one I used a die cut for the flowers, with a little i-rock bling and the same SU die for the butterflies.

Hope you enjoy these cards. Have a super Monday.

I got my new Imagine this weekend…..can’t wait to see how it works and make a few projects.  More to come.

After weeks of working on the new house I got around to making a few cards today. Marks Birthday is in a few weeks and I needed to make time to get that done. I used a wooden stamp that I have had for a few years, got it at HL, and just love. It makes a nice manly card.

The second card is using SU stamps, some spare parts corners and a little bling butterfly.  I colored the flowers using pencils. I like the way you can blend the color, makeing it darker or lighter with just going over the same area a little more. It makes for a softer color, rather than using markers, although I have a lot of Prismacolor and Bic pens as well.

I really like the way these turned out.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
