One for Steve & one for Stephen.

Good evening to you and welcome to my new followers, its great to have you!
It has been ages (a week is ages!) since I showed you anything I have made, so as im off work this week I thought id show you something that was not work related-just for fun!
So here is a card I made for my Steve's 12th birthday.  You will notice the almost lack of embellishment and bright colour etc, it is not cool when your 12, apparently.... 

I used a vintage car and my treasured scrabble set stamps from Claritystamp, silver embossed onto textured grey card, added a little shading with black Adirondack. I used an Ek punch, and I embossed the satin Silver card with a folder.

To my relief, it was well received!

Now for a card for Stephen Nicholls, my lovely FB buddy.

Do you recognise the stamps? yes they are more Claritystamps. The cutting dies are spellbinders designed by Donna Salazar- I love these.

This one was well received too!

See you soon.


  1. Love your cards - very masculine and yes, you definitely can't have too few embellies on a 12 year old boy's card!

  2. Loved them both....but if I'm truthful I like the card with the owl the best.

  3. Both cards are amazing Maria! i agree too many embellishments don't go down well with the boys!! but all the same your card is just right for Steve, your 2nd card is just as lovely great colour choice! also the cutting dies are amazing Steven will be just as pleased with his card too:) Sandra H

  4. Love both those cards, Maria, especially the first one. So stylish and beautifully designed.

  5. Fabulous Maria, love them both :)
