DTGD day 3 plus one

I am not sure I can keep this up, but here is one from day 2 and all of day 3 of Dare to Get Dirty (DTGD) from SCS.

  This is for my neighbor's daughter and SIL- who are having a baby boy in October : )  Nowadays, you can have a blood test done that tells you the sex of the baby......  I loved trying ou this new Gina Marie die- and I made 4 of the quilt backgrounds- so will make a few more in the future..... The banners are Joy Craft, the Joy-Lawn Fawn, The cap letters are Crafty Ann, Small letters Memory Box, DP is Lost and Found Breeze.

 Next, a fun card- I have been wanting to try a coffee card using distress inks and a shaker as well- used beads and glass shards glitter in blue.  The die is Memory Box and the Sentiment is SU.

Oh, I had to make an Asian card- the background is a technique I learned in Technique Junkies and gives it a metallic look, added German Scrap and fussy cut the images.  The images are embossed and colored carefully with Copics.  I swipe off the end of the marker as soon as I am done coloring to get any of the EP off the tip. Stamps are both Technique Junkies

And, I got out some more unused stamps- had to have them, and made a card for my hubby.  I tried to make this CAS... He is so sweet- made dinner last night as I was on a roll stamping : )   These stamps are Lawn Fawn.

I wanted to watercolor a bit more- love this unused image. I used Distress inks which react to water- and added some interesting green to the sky- oh well- I will know for next time! Ahhh, does't this look relaxing???  This image is from Technique Junkies.

And finally, a Birthday card for my dear friends hubby- who is 60 on Friday!  Another unused stamp- this is from Su SAB- not this tear...maybe 2 yrs ago???

I will get to blogs once I come up for air.....  Thanks for your understanding and support!
Thanks for stopping by!
