Birthday and Father's Day Cards

 Hi everyone, happy Sunday to you. I have a few cards to share with you as I haven't posted in a while. I am trying to keep up my cards that are for sale in one of the local shops and with Father's Day coming up in a couple of weeks, I really needed to get started!

Card #1
I have just purchased the Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers. I used to have the complete set but sold them a while ago now. I loved the idea of having 3 markers in 1. They certainly take up less space.
So, I wanted to try them out so brought out a cute image to practice on and ended up putting together a birthday card.
I distressed the background with oxide inks, added the clouds, popped up the image, and embossed the sentiment.

Card #2
I die cut the sentiment a number of times in different colours and just started to put cards together. This one I paired with a tool bag and tools coloured with my new markers.

Card #3
I used a couple of old HLS sets for the sentiments and used some new tool dies. I cut them first in silver mirror card, then cut them again in red card so I could overlay the 'handles'.

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Allsorts (Create your own Background), Through the Purple Haze (Happy Birthday), Timeout Challenges (Make your own Background), AAA Birthday Challenges (Anything Goes)
Card #2 - Colourful Options (Tranquil Turquoise), Di's Digi Challenge (Die Cuts and/or Punches), Sweet Stampin' (Firsts - first time I've used these tri-blend markers)
Card #3 - Daisy Chain Challenges (Men/Boys), Mix it Up (CAS), Moving Along with the Times (Anything Goes)


Thank you for popping in and have a great weekend :)
