It's Just a Number

This should make a nice masculine card for a guy turning an age he may not really want to be! So I had these cute distressed papers that had numbers all over them. I also used the Tim Holtz Ranger numbers and sanded them a little and then added some Pearl color and some Ranger Distress crackle paint to age them.  I also covered 3 chipboard numbers with some number paper and stained the edges with Ranger Distress walnut stain. I colored the 687 numbers with some Baja breeze ink and also used some distress crackle on top of that. The center statement of It's Just a Number is done with a Dynamo letterer. I distressed and stained the almond cardstock where I placed the Dynamo letters. I added Clear Distress Crackle over the statement piece. Card is covered in a Wood Designer paper, but the numbers cover it up pretty well! LOL!

Kute little Koala

This is a cute little stamp from Whippersnapper. I had quite a few scraps of paper on my desk, so I just grabbed some older designer papers and cardstock and used up some paper stash to create this cute little Koala Birthday card. I used Copics to color him in. I had a little thumb punch of a cupcake so I used the same striped paper to punch out the cupcakes on the side. I also sort of followed an older SCS card sketch for the placement layout. Faux brads are used in the corners by using a very old industrial paper punch my DH gave me quite a few years ago. It was another fun one!
