More Guy Cards with Serendipity Stamps

Happy May Day everyone!!  May Day use to be a day that we’d make li’l flower baskets and leave them on doorsteps of people we knew (as kids).  You hardly hear of that anymore.  But that thought is so nice, so pretend I’m giving y’all some flowers today, lol.  Ironically enough, my post have nothing to do with flowers.  In fact, it’s all about the guys!! 

Today I’m sharing my 3rd “Guest Designer” post for Serendipity Stamps! I created 2 easel cards; the first using the Airplane Cling set which includes a neat sentiment by Emily Dickenson called,  “We Never Know.”   

I have to say I was inspired by my friend Diane’s card here so it kinda has that same feel although different stamps were used and different layout.  I colored the airplane with Copics and added clear stardust gellyroll pen to the propellars and spokes of the wheels.  The top half of the card front has a light blue layer that I dry embossed with the swirls folder, resembling movement of clouds.  Machine stitching, buttons and twine complete the “masculine feel” I was going for.   Looks a li’l ODD in the picture below, but hopefully the recipient will know how it stands up :)  I like to print a li’l thumbnail picture of it from the side so they can see how they can display their easel card. 
My next card I used just the Airplane stamp along with a separate “Father’s Day” stamp.  I stamped the airplane on Kraft cardstock and colored with my Prisma colored pencils.  Added a fun snap that says “Imagine”, brads, stitching & stardust pen highlights again.
These “ribbons” made of paper are pretty popular right now, so I went with it :)

Right now, thru May 7th you can get FREE SHIPPING on US orders over $10!!  Check out more fabby inspiration from the Serendipity Designers on the blog.   Thanks for dropping by.  Please leave me a comment ~ thanks!!  *Ü*
