A super striker sneak peek

I did not get a change to make a card for this week’s Just Magnolia challenge so here’s a sneak peek for the upcoming Boys release from Lili of the Valley.  I am just loving these little boys, and had such fun putting these cards together.

This is Super Striker – check out the concentration on his little face lol.

I’ve always found boys cards such a darn challenge (because I loves me flowers and pretty-pretty) but these images are just so stinkin’ cute that I was more than happy just playing with buttons, dies, ribbon and divine twine. And boys cards force me out of my colour comfort zone, it’s rare that I use orange now isn’t it!

The sentiments are also from Lili of the Valley, I stamped out the tags from the A5 tag sheet then over-stamped with the sentiments from the Words for Tickets set before cutting out and inking the edges …. inked edges hide a multitude of sins when hand cutting lol.

Don’t forget to pop across to the Ideas to Inspire blog for more sneak peeks.  I’ll be back later tonight with a new candy and tomorrow to show another of the soon to be released sentiments, Laila sure has done a totally amazing job with these!

Have a fantastic weekend (let’s hope we see some sunshine!!)

  5. Morning Bev that is a really super striker card. Lots of clever details there including the ring surrounding the image. I love the LOTV sentiments looking forward to seeing those. It's not raining here this morning so at least I can get to work dry.

    Great card. LOTV is certainly making it much easier to produce boys cards.

  18. Hi Bev
    lovely card (for those OH so difficult/ no fun to make) lads cards lol. Like you Bev I LOVE all my flower's & pretty D.P.s so female cards for me are not (usually) a problem, UNLIKE male cards, BUT with these adorable L.O.T.V. images I can see lads cards are going to be much easier/fun to make.

  19. That's lovely Bev - boys' cards are a bit of a mare but it's amazing what a few buttons can do to perk them up! Pat x

  23. I do love the concentration on his face but like the 'movement' marks to, they make him look very realistic (or rather, you do, with your colouring). Fantastic card and that stamp is a must-have.

  34. Hi Bev, what a brilliant idea to bring out more boy images! There is such a lack of those. Love this little soccer player and what a geat card you made. Have a great weekend hun, hugs Frea

  35. Oh My! This reminds me of my son when he was 2-5 playing soccer! (Futbol to you, I believe!) I love this image, and you did such a wonderful job with the card. Now, they aren't making a stamp of a 22-year-old US Airmen stamp are they? LOL Oh, how time flies!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Bev!
