Cards 4 Teens Card Recipe

Stampendous has these little bitty stamps that are just adorable with cute little images and tiny sentiments.  I stamped and embossed this cute little mouse on water color paper.  I colored him with Tombow markers and added a purple mat and purple enamel dots.  This is a CAS card that would be perfect for any teenager.

Embossing Delight Card Recipe

So I always wait until the last minute to make my design team cards.  Ask Karen and Kelley - they will tell you.  I don't procrastinate - I just work better under pressure.  wink wink.  So I was working on my card - dry embossed the background and used wet embossing on the sentiment.  I had this cute little image of a puppy that was already colored as the main image on my card.  Then I went to add it to the design team blogger page.  CRAP!  I used the wrong image.  I work better under pressure remember?  So I printed out the right image and put it right on top of that cute puppy.  And that is the reason she isn't colored.  I think she still looks good though - don't you?

Cards 4 Dad Card Recipe

This card could be used for any guy including Dad.  The star die cut was in my stash so I pulled some yellow card stock to coordinate and a stamp set and die cuts from My Favorite Things.  I stamped the sentiment on the yellow card stock.  I popped the stars up on thick foam tape.  The little stars are part of the my Favorite Things die set.  I matted the yellow with more blue and there you go.
