3 cards on Thursday

I have three cards to share today. One is from this morning and the other two are from earlier this week. The Any Hero card is from this morning, the beach card is from Monday, and the sunset card is from Tuesday. 


Hero card is based on OWH sketch #103 and SCS challenge WT489 (Lots of Dots). Solid paper is from Recollections. Printed paper is from BoBunny Anthem Collection 6x6 pad. Hearts are a Stampin' Up punch. Embossing folder is Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. Stamp is Stampin Up Words of Courage and stamped with Archival Jet Black. This is my 10th Any Hero card with this paper pad and I still have a lot of paper left in it. I LOVE IT!

Beach card is SCS TLC491 (Scor a design), CAS 282 (at the beach), and F4A230 (bright colors). Solid paper is by Recollections. Ribbon is by Offray. Beach chair image is from Google Images and then altered in Microsoft Word. Scor design made on my Martha Stewart scorboard.

Sunset card is just playing around with the Stampin Up Seaside Sketches stamp set I stamped on some scrap papers at a crop. I colored the whole thing with Tim Holtz Distress Markers: Fired Brick, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Black Soot, Vintage Photo, Broken China. and Picked Raspberry. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Simple Saying stamp set. Both stamps are stamped with Archival Jet Black. All of the paper is by Recollections.

I also stamped the father and son from this set and plan to work on it at a later time. The matching stamp set is Sketches and I used the one with the Adirondack chair and the stool with the book. Again, I will work on those at a later time. I'm looking forward to watercoloring all of the images I stamped. There is another coordinating stamp set that I just discovered online today called Summer by the Sea. I MUST own these sets! By the way, my birthday is in September **hint hint** :)

Your red, white and blue card is really cute! I like the papers and the textures -- the hearts are a bit unexpected, which I like.
