Hi everyone! How’s your end of Summer going? I keep getting sidetracked! lol Trying to make more room here and there and clearing out stuff but really not ending up with that much more room! Why?! I think I’m pretty good at it! lol Oh well….I’ll keep trying.
And the other thing…how come if you use one scrap it seems like two more appear! lol
This is Corrin’s birthday card for this year… He turned 8 years old! and yes, he is a cute blonde…that Summer bleached blonde funky hair cut kind of boy, concerned about the frogs etc. lol
I linked up to this stamp below but it’s discontinued…sorry about that but I have to use my stash too and I have to show you anyway cuz it’s a cute card! lol
I stamped him with Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Copic Sketch Markers and cut him out by hand but hey, I got a really good deal on a Scan n Cut 350 machine and I really like it you guys!!! Shirley has been telling me about it and you know how we influence each other!!! Thank you Shirley! lol So next time, I’m cutting these bad boys and anything else I don’t have the dies for, with this new toy! I cut out some digital images and the granddaughters cut out some hand drawn images with it. Gena’s clouds were super cute!
Here’s a picture of the digital images I cut out with it…
ok – back to birthday cards…
This is Henry’s birthday card for this year…he turned 11!!! Doesn’t seem possible! He loves games! He’s great driving the gator around too, mowing the lawn and loves to read.
Shoot me now! lol This is another die set that is discontinued and so is the stamp set. boo. The die set is called Game Controller and the stamp set is called Level Up, both by My Favorite Things…so don’t be mad at me! lol
I saw a card made up when I googled the stamp name, I loved it so I made it very similar to Elaine’s! Thank you Elaine for the inspiration!
Both boys liked their cards! yay! June and July are both big birthday months for our family…September we have 3 so a few weeks break from birthday cards!
Although, I made a card, copied myself, that a friend requested for her aunt’s 90th birthday. She started dairy farming when she was 50 yrs old! Click on over to my Instagram to see a super short video of it. I put the tractor on a wobble this time. Guaranteed to make you smile!
Thanks so much for stopping by stamping friends! I appreciate it so much!
I’m trying out the new LinkDeli links today…a trial to see if they will work on a wordpress.com blog….so click away! lol Pretty sure it won’t blow up! lol
Supplies and Tools I used to made these cards… STR stands for Starlitstudio, SSS stands for Simon Says Stamp, SBC stands for Scrapbook.com and Blic stands for Dick Blick. Thank you for shopping through my links!

Now these are great cards, Pam. You are certainly getting into your boy ‘groove’. Big thumbs up from me. X
AWESOME cards! They are both so cool! Amazing work!!!! Yea! Lucky little grandsons!
Great cards| It’s a shame that the stamps are discontinued 😦 Have fun with your Scan n Cut!
Awwww cutest boy cards ever!! That little blond boy is darling! You colored him so beautifully too! Love the game controller card! Perfect for an 11 year old! I’ll have to check out your card on IG too!
Love these Pam – and your superior coloring skillz!!!!
fantastic birthday cards!! i love the designs and colours you’ve used! sounds like an amazing new toy; have fun with that!
So cute! I think I may need to scrap lift this one next, thankfully I have the dies and stamps that I have not used enough.
I’ve always been intrigued with the Scan and Cut. Glad you like it! (I might have to do some looking around.) Great boy cards! Those are usually the harder ones to make and your are awesome! Lucky kiddos! 🙂
Both of these are fabulous boy’s cards Pam, your colouring and designs are perfect! Nice ELinking action too!
Cute boy cards!
Adorable boy cards for those great grandsons. Love your coloring! everything looks realistic, too! You did it again, Pam!! I’ll have to check out the Scan and Cut. Thanks for sharing.
Oh what great cards! We too, have a lot of birthdays in the summer months! Whew! I have two more to make by 9/1…LOL! A few were late in mailing, but when you have a birthday every day for a week, with one day having 2, you tend to get behind! LOL I am thinking of getting a Scan N Cut. I have had a Cricuit for a number of years, but haven’t used it in almost a year. I think I would use a Scan N Cut more as I am using more and more digital images…I’m running out of space to store stamps! LOL! I will be anxious to see how you like the Scan N Cut!
Wonderful ‘boy’ cards…they are always a challenge for me. Thanks for sharing your creativity and endorsing the Scan n’ Cut machine…going to look for it!
Totally RAD … wait. do kids these days even know what that expression means? That’s okay… the card maker will!!!
OH how I’d love a Scan n Cut!
Great inspiration for boy cards here, I have a lot of great nephews that I make cards for!!
Your farm card is just the cutest too!!
Love both of these cards! And of course, loving them would have bought the stamps & die. Just my luck! They will both be hits with your lucky grandsons!
Perfect boy cards and super cute! The game controller is so real looking! Some companies’ stamps and dies seem to retire so quickly. If I had to stick to current stuff I’d be in sorry shape. I love seeing what you make no matter what. The inspiration is awesome. I mean, it’s not as if I don’t have enough stuff. Your farm card is fantastically cute, too! Also, your LinkDeli seems to be working just fine from my perspective.
Gosh what great birthday cards, that little guy is soooo cute and just perfectly colored and that controller really does look real Pam! Happy Birthday to Corrin and Henry! Was wondering how you’re doing with the ScanNCut, I’m anxiously waiting to see what you’re creating! I know I’ll be learning a lot from you soon, I know you’re wayyyy past what little I know already and I can’t wait to be inspired!
You know how much I love when you work with dies, but I SO miss your beautiful coloring! Great coloring on the image on Corrin’s card! And OMG, your creativity blows me away! Henry’s card is amazing! Glad both boys liked them, but I’m not surprized! Keep on ‘wow’ing me, dear friend!!! Hugs…
