A Couple for the Boys

Banner Father's Day Sep'14(4)Beauty by the Sea DH Oct14 (4)Hello again blog friends!

I am back from Q’ld … but still popping a scheduled post up … because I do have a bit to catch up on after a couple of busy weeks! Today I am sharing a couple of cards ‘for the boys’!

Banner Father's Day (5)Banner Father's Day Sep'14(3)I made two of this first card … one for my nephew’s birthday and one for my father-in-law for Father’s Day. The DSP is from the SU! paper stack called “Moonlight”. It is a great combo of colours … particularly for the boys! The sentiment is an oldie (“All Year Cheer II”) and I have layered it on the versatile “Off the Grid”.  Card Inspiration: Amy O’Neill.

Banner Father's Day Sep'14(1)The second card was a quick and easy birthday card using the lovely Sweet n Sassy “Beauty by the Sea” and the same SU! paper stack for the background papers.  I haven’t had this stamp set out for a while … and it was nice to dust it off!

Beauty by the Sea DH Oct14 (1)Beauty by the Sea DH Oct14 (3)I had another play with my SU! Blendabilities … and am still finding it a bit of an effort to get the blending ‘just right’! I just wish the lightest tone of the colours were a little paler in intensity. I do find I play around a bit too much with the ink. I think I need to let them dry properly before adding more. I think I am improving????? Have fun today … whatever you are doing! Hugs xxx

    I am always in need of cards for ‘boys’. The banners look awesome on the first one… and oh, those seashells… great coloring Andrea.
