Taking Flight

Bison In Wilderness

As promised, here is the other birthday card for one of my nephews. This is one of those cards where I had something totally different in mind. After I trashed that idea (literally), I decided on this design. The best part about this one is, it sort of fell into place. It still isn't what I had envisioned, it's better! Love when that happens.

Lovely Oak

I believe that most of us have a difficult time creating masculine cards. I am no exception. Usually, when making a "man" card, I look toward nature, not tools. Per usual, I made this masculine card with a nature theme. The colors are inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge (although I was too late), and (this is perfect) Addicted to CAS has a masculine theme of "It's Raining Men."
Supplies: Stamp - Lovely As A Tree; Paper - Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla; Ink - Lucky Limeade, Marina Mist, Soft Suede; Ribbon - Natural Trim.

I used torn sticky notes and a brayer for the grass and sky, then after I distressed the edges I used a dauber with Soft Suede around the edges and across the grass area. Although it's hard to tell, I also pierced the upper left corner of the Cajun Craze paper.

Lovely Tree

I wanted to make a card for a family friend who shattered his arm near his shoulder (yes, I said shattered). He had surgery and is recuperating but it will be about a year for full recovery. Isn't this a great, masculine card? I totally CASEd this card from a card I found at Stamp Up Your Craft. Aileen shares how she was inspired to create this card after traveling through Scottland. I had tried my hand at brayering previously, but this one convinced me to try it again. I'm so glad I did.
Supplies: Stamp - Lovely As A Tree; Paper - Always Artichoke, Early Espresso Core'dinations, Very Vanilla; Ink - Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder; Embossing Folder - Woodgrain
