In case you have not already noticed, I use the Need for Speed stamp set by Stamping Up! for many of my male cards. This set is perfect for just about any guy! I also make it a challenge for myself to see how many different designs I can create with the same stamp set. Here is my newest one! I used red, yellow, and green papers from my scraps to symbolize a traffic light. Originally when I cut the circles for the light I thought that it looked to plain, so I spiced it up using different Cuttlebug Folders. The Red cardstock is embossed with "Roman Bath", the Yellow cardstock is embossed with "Swiss Dots", and the Green cardstock is embossed with "Gears". The road at the bottom was cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I used IG8, IG6, IG4, & IG2 (Spectrum Noir) to create the gray color on the car.

Four years ago I married a wonderful man! We've been through quite a bit these last four years, but I know that it just makes us stronger. From being medically discharged from the military to expecting our first baby in June, I can already see life has a lot in store for us and I can't wait for the wild ride.
This is the card that I made for my lovely hubby!
The red paper is from a stack called Immortal Love and the black paper is just embossed with Divine Swirls. The image is called "Christmas Kiss" although I cut out the mistletoe to fit the occasion. :) The flowers and ribbon are from my stash.

I think the Inky Antics cards are always so much fun to make! The Honey Pop paper in the middle just adds so much to the inside of the card and it is a fun surprise as well. This set is called Birthday Elephant. I used my Spectrum Noir's to color this little guy in and used the Yellow Honey Pop paper for the balloon in the center. For the sentiment in the middle I used the Spellbinder's Picot Circles.

I used the Art Impressions stamp set titled "Garden" to create this wonderful little card. I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color this fun card in. The squirrel is an addition I added from the "Furries" stamp set also from the Try Fold collection by Art Impressions. I put the little squirrel on a pop dot, not that you can really tell from this picture. I punched out the little pink flowers and glued them to the card in order to add some volume. Overall I'm happy with the way the card came out. :)

This weeks challenge at Hiding in my Craftroom, is Color It! I bought my spectrum noir markers a little over a year ago and I use them ALL THE TIME! I just love them so much! I used the Art Impressions Try Fold stamp set titled "Lake House" to create this card. These are a lot of fun to make, and give the card depth. I also have the "Garden" stamp set, so watch out for that card coming soon. :) Enjoy!
This is a card that I just put together and it was so simple! The swirls are done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Divine Swirls. Then I just used colored card stock in my stash to put the layers together. I used a recollections punch to put the little white flower in the corner with a gemstone and bingo! This sweet and simple card was put together.

My "baby" brother just turned 18 yesterday! This is the card that I made for him. I used a bunch of scraps from my stash, and combined it with the Wild About You stamp set from Gina K. Conveniently, the challenge at Hiding in my Craft Room this week is scraps. Therefore I have entered it in! :)
