New card Using April release stamps



Card Base pink cardstock from Walmart
next layer  white cardstock GEORGIA PACIFIC from Walmart
Front layer is K&Company Designer Mat Pad
Senitment is stamped with Memento Black ink using stamp set from
http://www.peachykeenstamps.com/shop/ PK-1382 Flamingo Phrases
I used the new Pk-1381 Polkadot Background  with hollyhock ink from CTMH

The leaves from the new PKSC-28 April 2014 ink was New England Ivy from CTMH
Now the flamingos I cut from cricut design space on my explore and I can't remember
which cut it was I just typed in FLAMINGO'S and this is what I got.  I used a homemade
paste (baking soda - Mod podge - and white acrylic paint )  I saw this on a blog but it didn't
give how much of each item so I played around with it.   So I added a dash of red acrylic to
make the dark pink for the flamingos.  I used the negative of the cut and put the paste on
and when it dried this is what I got!!!  for the black eyes I just used a marker.  the banner is
the flip side of the card front and I just snipped it to make it look like it does.  I hope you
like my card :)  Vicky

SON'S BIRTHDAY CARD





I made this card for my son's 35th birthday.  Don't know how my Daughter will
take the sentiments but I did it as a joke.  When they were little my son would
come to me and say  " MOM AM I YOUR FAVORITE"  of course I would say
you both are.  Then he would go and tell his sister Mom said I am her favorite.
So  the process began  She would come to me and say the same thing and go
back and say that I had said she was my favorite lol that went on for years.
I really think its still going on but who knows I love them both and they both
are my favorites :)
Materials I used was Georgia Pacific white from walmart
The other is DCWV
Score tape
