Comet


Honeycomb

Skyfall


We also have a special priced May Release Bundle that's only available for this weekend only.

Here's what I've created for you...




For my first card I used the Prickly stamp set stamped onto X-press It paper with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in Antique Linen so that I could do no-line coloring with my Copic markers.  I dry embossed clay colored cardstock with my brick embossing folder from The Paper Studio and cut it down to make it look like steps.  (I of course seen this idea on Pinterest)  I then popped dotted the cactus with fun foam and then stamped the sentiment from This & That stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Clean and Simple (CAS) :)





For my 2nd card  I used Adventure Land and the new Flag Banner Dies.  I started by stamping the small map and anchor on kraft colored cardstock in TH's distress ink in Walnut Stain all over the background.  I then tore and curled the edges then blended distress inks around the edges and kept the lighter colors for the middle.  I then spritzed with water and crinkled the map lightly.  I stamped the Pirate ship onto the same kraft cs with Memento Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I used a Recollections opaque white marker to color the skulls and used a white Gelly Roll pen for the stripes on the flags.  The Father's Day sentiment is from Happy Celebrations  stamp set which was embossed onto the banner cut in black cardstock.
