One from me, two from Sage

One from me:

I made a card yesterday evening, for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Diamond Wallpaper Stamping.


It's my husband's birthday tomorrow and I always use PTI's On the Farm set to make his cards (for proof click here & here.)
I stamped my diamond background using the double striped stamp from Simply Framed, 
inked the edges and added the stars (from Summer Camp) in red.
The other images and sentiment are from On the Farm and I heat embossed the sentiment on a double-ended banner die cut.


Two from Sage:

Before Sage left for camp, I suggested that she make a couple of thank you cards
to give to her counsellors at the end of the week.

She used PTI's Slide Frame die with some aqua mist card stock,
stamped the lake scene from Summer Camp and then water coloured it, using dye inks spritzed with water.
She added some Lawn Fawn critters, which she also water coloured and cut out by hand.
The sentiments are from Wplus9's Fanciful Feathers stamp set.



Aren't they sweet?

I'm linking her cards up to the latest Lawnscaping Challenge: Watercolour.

Thanks for looking!

Sage, your cards are a duo of delight - such charming water-coloured scenes - guaranteed to bring mega watt smiles to your counselors' faces. Creative, inspiring and very, very special! Leigh, your card for your husband: fabulous! I know he loves it (and that sentiment makes me laugh! My grandfather, who had a farm in Manitoba, would have delighted in it!
