We have two male birthdays this week so I put together these cards for them. This first one is used with a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock because he is a faculty member and there will be lots of people signing his card so I needed a big card!!!

Patti, you look so happy with your final projects!!!
Stamps: Salutation (friend to friend) from Pocket Silhouettes, Medallion stamp is from Artistic Etchings
Cardstock: DSP Springtime Vintage (retired), Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: Two Tags Bigz Die, Antique Brads, 2 3/8" circle punch Modern Label Punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, clear embossing powder, sponges, crochet trim ribbons Chantilly 1/2" and Victoria 5/8", punch mat
This first card is Emboss Resist where I stamped the Medallion Background Stamp with Versamark on Very Vanilla cardstock, then used a clear embossing powder. Then I sponged it with Crumb Cake.
Stamp Set: Medallion
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Ink: Crumb Cake, Versamark
Accessories: sponges, antique brad, eyelet border punch
This next card again uses the Medallion Background Stamp. This time I used the Rock and Roll Technique where I inked the new In Color Pool Party in the middle and added Baja Breeze on the outside. Then on a separate piece of paper I inked the center with the In Color Island Indigo. I then covered it with versamark and covered it in clear embossing powder. Then I used the 2 1/2" circle punch to cut it out. I added dimensionals and a rhinestone brad and attached it to the card. Then I used scallop trim border punch and white satin ribbon.
I hope you enjoy viewing these cards.

While trying to come up with a shoe box swap, I looked through splitcoast stampers to find some ideas. Then I remembered the Easel Card and found Beate's tutorial there.

Here is my card:
I just can't think of anything more fun than stamping with a friend!!! Oh did I mention we laughed a lot as well???? Oh yeah!!! Laughing makes your imagination and your creative juices start flowing!!
After visiting Pat I decided to try this technique again only using sponges instead of water color! Just so you know, Pat doesn't play fair! She gave me regular paper to water color on and kept talking to me to distract me from working. Finally I saw that my markers were NOT blending like they should and the paper started coming apart. That's when I realized.....I've been sabotaged!!!! So I'm gonna post that picture so you can see what she did to me!!!
Oh and have I told you what a little rascal she is???? She didn't want her picture taken so everytime I tried, she would poke her head back behind her card....till I realized she was looking at the flash and then ducking back.....SO hehe, I turned off the flash and caught her!!!
Thanks Pat for a day filled with fun, laughter and creativity!!! Thank you for lunch too!!!

She did the rock and roll technique using the new In Color Pool Party for the center and Marina Mist around the outside of the flower followed by the In Color Lucky Limeade Marker. We ran the Crumb Cake through the square lattice textured embossing folder and layered it onto Marina Mist Cardstock and last year's In Color Pear Pizzaz. We used the Pear Pizzaz seam binding and covered it with the crochet trim and added the bling of the antique brads. She also used the blender pens in the middle of the flower. Nice huh???
These next two cards are the same design using different colors! Which one do you like?
I used the new In Colors: Lucky Limeade and Pool Party along with Daffodil Delight. Also Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Ribbon and Textured Back ground.
On this one I used the New In Color Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impression. Aren't they beautiful?
On both cards I used Perfect Silhouettes stamp set, 1 1/4" circle punch, modern label punch.
