When your in need of a masculine card, this card is a perfect fit.  Brian King who designed this card always says that guy cards don't always have to be brown.  I totally agree with him!  Any guy who gets this card will smile and his heart will not be breaking.

Hello Again

This card features two first of firsts.  The first of first features Stampin’ UP’s Blendabilities, the alcohol ink markers made for blending and shading.  The second first of first is a die cut sentiment made from My Digital Studio’s  Moments Ago Stamp Brush Set and my e-cutter.  Both are easy to use and make a beautiful card.

When I see this card I want to burst out in song to Neil Diamond’s, “Hello Again”.

Hello

Bee Happy

The lovely and talented Kim Coulter used this adorable bee on front of our menu folder at a demonstrator event we had this past January.  I showed the menu (plus all the other charming things Kim made for this event) to my customers and they asked to make The Bee.  It was something I had in my mind all year but I just hadn’t really got around to it.  When the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog was released, I saw a stamp from the Sweet Stuff stamp set that just called out for The Bee.  Here’s what I camp up with:

Feathers but no Birds

I have been inspired by some of the cards I have seen that use die cuts from Stampin’s UP’s  e-cutter files.  So I purchased an electronic cutting tool and merged the feather from My Digital Studio’s (MDS), Feathered Woodcuts Kit.  This digital image was originally a now retired stamp set.  In the digital environment it can also be used to make a die cut.  The SVG image of the feather was merged into the ecutter's design software.  I then used the trace tool to outline the image that created the cut line.    Next I  filled the page so that I could cut a bunch of them.   I hit the cut button and that was it; they were done.  Then I got cut happy. 

Here’s how I used the die cuts:
