Birthday Cards for GD

This was my guest design post from yesterday on 

I wanted to make a card using a different technique today. I decided to hand color some very cute Penny Black stamps. I love Penny Black stamps. This is a clear stamp set I bought a couple years ago. I wanted to make a male and female card. I have such a hard time making male cards. I honestly find them boring to make, lol. My wonderful husband bought me a Purple Cow paper cutter from Costco for Valentine's Day. Never mind the flowers give me the crafty products. This paper cutter have 7 different blades and one is a perforated blade. I saw the bookmark card on Splitcoast stampers and tried making it and cutting the bookmark by hand but I did not like how it came out. So I finally got to make this card. I did not use the tutorial I just sized it the way I wanted and started the decorating.

I hand colored the stamps using my Prism colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. After it dried I used the Glossy Accents on the balloons and tie.
I cut the label from Lacy Labels then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist.On the close up you can see how the Glossy Accents shines. It looks better in person.
The inside sentiment is the same as the front except I added some bling on the corners using my I*rock.
The bookmark is not perfect but that is the beauty of handmade. This was my second attempt at this bookmark card. I am improving with each try.

The male version of this bookmark card I kept very simple. I did most of the same things as the female version.
It is hard to see the Glossy Accents on the tie but it looks good in person. The label was cut from Lacy Labels and sprayed with Glimmer Mist.

I hope you enjoy my cards. Any questions or comments are welcome. Stop by my blog to check out my other projects if you get the chance.
