Funny Cards

Hi everyone.  This week's Paper Ala Mode challenge is to make funny cards.  We are being sponsored by Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  If you're not familiar with their images I highly recommend you go check them out.  They have some of the funniest stamps available anywhere. 

I made two cards.  The first one uses an image called Derek Clapton.  Don't you just love the title of the image?  I thought my husband would like this one since he's a guitar player

My next card uses an image called Blunder Woman.  I made a double slider birthday card for this one.

and here it is opened

Come check out all the funny cards made by the design team - they are all a hoot!

Punch Art Valentine

I had such fun creating this dinosaur valentine for my grandson.  He's two years old, and I think he'll like this.  I used the pointed ends of a heart punch for the teeth and spikes.

Feminine cards at Paper Ala Mode

This week's Paper Ala Mode challenge is to make a feminine card.  We have two sponsors, but I used this pretty Anemone image from Rachel's Fine Lines.

I discovered a fun tip when making this card.  I printed the image and then colored it with colored pencils.  The pencils kind of clouded the dark lines in the image, so after coloring it, I printed it again directly over the colored image.  The wax in the pencils let the ink stay wet long enough for me to emboss it.  I love that I can do this!  Hope you find this a helpful tip as well.
