Some Fun Cards

I want to show you some cards today that I had a lot of fun making and, in some cases, sending. As ever, click on the photos to enlarge them.

1. Change is Good - I had so much fun fussy cutting and paper piecing the underpants and socks that what I intended to be one card turned into two! The stamp set is by Unity Stamp Company.

2. A birthday card for a goofy friend - I did some direct-to-paper with the backgrounds on these, and the stamps are a set from Simon Says Stamp. I pulled out my Blendabilities (alcohol markers) to color the animals. I get the giggles every time I look at the cow.

3. Playing with neon - Remember the post back in December where I won some neon inks in a photo inspiration challenge? I had a little time to play with the sprays and pico writers, and here's the scrap of paper I doodled on.

And here's the card I made with it:

It's a little strange, even by my standards, but the colors are fun together. No doubt I'll find the perfect occasion to send it.

4. My "down under" card - I made this simple card while skyping with a couple of my StampNation Sistahs in Australia back in February. (Hi, Tristan! Hi, Michelle!) The stamp set is Lotus Blossom, a Stampin' Up! set from Sale-a-bration this year. Our Skype visit wasn't nearly as productive for me as it was for my friends, but I had so much fun listening to my friends' fabulous accents!

That's it for today! My plan is to show you some of my Valentines Day cards tomorrow, so I hope you'll join me.

Bright smiles,
Joyce Spear / StamperJoyce

Your cards are great! I love the underwear and cow ones the best.
