You’re My Hero

firetruckredWell…since I showed you a YELLOW fire truck, I thought I’d go ahead and show you a RED fire truck…so you have one of each!  Oh…and there is a little bit of a ‘sneak peek’ in there too!

This was such a FUN and EASY card to make.  The base of the card is Smoky Slate (LOVE the new color!)  I just LOVE the NEW Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder in the new seasonal mini and thought it would be absolutely PERFECT with this card…I was right…it IS!!!  I stamped the truck and greeting using StazOn Jet Black (TIP:  I put both images on the block and stamped both at once!) then colored in the truck with my Real Red marker.  I layered this onto a piece of Real Red, added two Basic Black banners then added to the card front using dimensionals.  Since I’m keeping things nice and simple, I just added a couple of Basic Black Stars to finish it off!  What another great card for the guy in your life!

firetruckyellowWhat color are YOUR fire trucks?  Around here we have a mixture…some places have yellow fire trucks and others have red.  So this week I have a yellow fire truck and a red fire truck for you!

This is such a fun set!  Originally I was going to use set for my Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 project this week but then switch to Rev Up the Fun!  They are both such great set that can be used for either guy or girl cards (it’s what we are doing this week) and hmmm…I think this card could be either for a guy or a gal!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I stamped the two greetings – one in Summer Starfruit and the other in Basic Black.  I took a strip of Summer Starfruit, sponged some Summer Starfruit on it and added to the card front.  Next I added a Basic Grey banner, a Basic Black banner, and a Summer Starfruit Star (Merry Minis Punch Pack).  I stamped the truck and greeting in StazOn Jet Black…TIP:  put BOTH on the block a the same time and stamp once!…then colored with the Summer Starfruit marker.  This is layer onto a piece of Basic Grey then to the card front using dimensionals.  I kept the card pretty basic so you could easily use this for a young boy in your life (no matter how old that young boy happens to be!  LOL!!!).

Preview 2Happy Tuesday everyone!  This is my second post for the day but I just HAD to post again to let EVERYONE know that today is a BLOG CANDY day on Create with with Connie and Mary Preview Week Summer Collection!  So…how you you join in the fun?  Well…check out below for more details!

First…a little about my card…the base of the card is Real Red.  I took a piece of Night of Navy and pierced a large star on it.  No there is not a template for this, I did it by hand.  I added it to a piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the greeting using Real Red and Night of Navy, cut into a banner and added to the card.  I did the star from Simply Stars in Real Red and the police car from You’re My Hero in Real Red, Night of Navy and Basic Black.  I cut this out and added using dimensionals.  I added the fun arrow paper clip then added this panel to the card front using dimensionals.

SUOThe SUO challenge this time is PATRIOTIC!!!  I JUST got this stamp set and I just couldn’t resist putting a little ink to the rubber for the red, white, and blue!

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler.  I took a piece of Night of Navy, layered on Whisper White and added to the card base using dimensionals.  Next I cut a Cherry Cobbler banner from the Regal dsp paper pack and Whisper White from the Neutrals dsp paper pack.  The big star is stamped in Night of Navy and the small ones in Cherry Cobbler and cut out.  Two were added directly to the card.  I stamped the greeting from You’re My Hero using Night of Navy on Whisper White and punched out using the Modern Label punch.  I stamped one of the images from Lovely Labels using Cherry Cobbler, punched with the Artisan Label Punch, cut in half and layered behind the greeting.  The greeting was added using dimensionals.  I then added the little star using dimensionals.  Finally I added several Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
