If you were here yesterday you would have seen I made a couple of cards using my favourite retiring stamp set Boys Will Be Boys. I made them for my part in yesterday's Jems "retiring products" blog hop. Did you hop here yesterday? If so, I hope you also enjoyed hopping around to see the other favourites of the lovely ladies in the Jems team?
If you missed yesterday's post you can find it HERE.
So, when I was making the cards for the hop I got a tad carried away and ended up making four cards so I thought I'd save these two to share with you today :-) Take a look...
So, I really wanted to use this stamp for something other than kids birthdays! I was going to give this to my hubby for our anniversary but I was so excited by it that I showed him, by accident! Doh!
Sentiment is from Words of Truth, love the typewriter font and the kind, encouraging words of this set and I used Chalk Lines (sold out) again for the hearts in the background.
yesterdays Lego card I masked, stamped and heat embossed the Lego, except this time I masked the outer edges instead of across the middle. Then I coloured this one for a little boy in Pool Party, So Saffron and Mint Macaron.
I like to use SU! thick white card to stamp, then colour all the Boys will Be Boys images.
I'm no artist and my colouring skills are basic at best, but you can find a simple VIDEO HERE on how I watercolour them, if you'd like :-)
Unfortunately found it didn't show up very well on it's own so my TIP: is use a little Smoky Slate ink and a sponge on the reverse of the vellum, this just makes the sentiment stand out a bit better :-)

And here all four of this weekends makes together, to finish today :-)
Thanks so much for looking today, I'll be back tomorrow with something new!
