it’s a 3 card kind of day!


I was inspired to use some alphabet dies when I saw a card on Papertrey ink’s blog!   I used some Crate paper from a 6×6 pad,  a couple old Hero Arts sentiments, an EK Success border punch and an even older diamond punch to make the banner for a ‘scrappy looking kind of card’!


It’s a birthday card challenge for you!  Use some ‘old and older’ stuff! lol  Oh, and my tiny attacher was working that day, so I have a staple! yea! lol  The background numbers stamp is one of those wheel stamps.  I unmount them and use them as a flat stamp… multiple stamping to get the all over background, using the stamp a ma jig for placement.

Pink is harder than red to capture in a photograph!  eek!  oh well,  Here’s a cute card for the scooter rider of the family!  Lots of fun stamps from Printworks Collection here… the fishtail banner pulls out and says….


Howie’s Ride J4300, Toy Racer C4295,  Rough Rider B4290, Who Says? F4304, E4298 1..2..3..,  Eat Cake A4299,   On Your Mark D4123

Printworks has ‘thee’ best Birthday sentiments!!!  This is a non-opening card, for lack of a better way to put it at the moment!  : ) I didn’t tape the right side down so the fishtail banner could pull in and out. The stitching across the top is a Fiskars border punch.  I used banner dies for the words and a circle punch.

More fun stamps from Printworks Collection for Spring! I love this primitive wheelbarrow and it is fun to color and goes so well with all of Annette’s images and sentiments!  I attempted watercoloring again on the scooter card and this one, with Caran d’Ache watercolor crayons on cold press watercolor paper.  Perfect Layers Tools for matting the image… link in the sidebar.

  1. WOW lady !!! It’s not enough to tempt us with ONE card so you gotta show us 3 to tempt us even more … You are amazing at any kind of card or coloring medium you put your hand to. That pink scooter is just wonderful … love how you used the fishtail for the sentiment …

  2. Wow woman, do I have to keep cussing you out? You are really out doing me here. LOVE that bike and the hidden tag…. great idea. They are all wonderful Pam.
