Manly Monday-Using scraps

I have an over abundance of 2” paper from cutting the 6” patterned paper pads to fit my 4x5.5 cards. I decided to use them side by side but the paper didn’t cover the seam in the middle since I made a 4.5x5.5 card base. I stamped a TPC border stamp with blue Hero Arts ink onto grey cardstock. The center seemed plain so I inked a piece of paper with Ranger distress ink Iced Spruce. The sentiment stamp is by Stampibilities.
The pictures look blurry to me. I hope they don’t look that way to you. I got new glasses but can’t find them. Ugh!

Thanks for looking.

Manly Monday Celebrate with Flames

My cards today came to from my then SIL. You see, I had made them for nephews birthday and they never sent them out. I was hurt and pissed because of the time and resources that went into these cards. She did give them back when she could have thrown them away.
The first card is the original invite, I cut a bunch of them up and created some new cards.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy holidays tag card

The tag and background paper are upcycled and I also used a Die Cuts With a View sentiment, K and Co border and a Cricut tree cut out of Recollections paper. The tree needed something more so I added Stickles.

Peace from our home to yours

I had a bunch of tags I wanted to use on cards. Here’s a link to the TAG.
 For this tag I paired it up with a vintage cardboard picture frame. Check out how the edges of the tag are tucked inside those slots where the edges of a vintage photo would be.

 For the sentiment I took a leftover piece of watercolor paper and stamped it with black ink and a Hero Arts sentiment. I put foam tape behind that sentiment but only in the center.
 The background paper is unknown. Thanks for looking.

Deep Red stamps Drama card

One of the kids graduating was into drama and theater and so I made this card. Different from my normal graduation cards but kind of fun to be able to do something like this because it was made for them.
The movie clapper stamp is by Deep Red stamps and I did 1st and 2nd generation stamping with black ink. I found the drama faces on a Cricut cartridge. I put some graduation hats on top of their heads.
