Here Comes Billy!

Who is Billy you ask? If you've paid attention to my blog you know I don't have a son named Billy. Well, thanks once AGAIN to Lauren Meader (mytime) I discovered this cute little guy from Pink Cat Studio. Most of the time when I am shopping it takes me forever to finally hit the send button. I really think about my non-SU purchases since I can't use them to demo with. Not this time. I saw Lauren's cute boy gift set and 10 minutes later this stamp set was mine! Shipping was super fast which was a nice surprise since it was coming from Canada. I know I will get a ton of mileage out of this set. I just hope the boy's friends don't get sick of seeing him when it comes to Birthday cards.

The first card here uses the sketch from the Great Swaps Girls Challenge this week. I used the rust striped paper from the Fall Flowers paper pack across the top of the texture choc. chip cs and then to layer the main image. I added a piece of linen thread to separate the two pieces of paper and give it a more western, rugged feel. To color little Billy, I used my Water Wonder Crayons, aqua painter and watercolor paper. The sentiment and stars are stamped with choc. chip craft ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I layered the sentiment with the lg. oval punch and lg. star punch.

This second card uses the Billy super hero stamp that is included in the set. I colored him using my aqua painter again, but picked up the ink from the lid of my ink pads instead of the WWC. The sentiment is layered up again, but this time with my circle punches and designer label punch. I also sandwiched in a piece of the styled silver HPH. A piece of striped pumpkin grosgrain ribbon finishes it off! All products are SU except for the stamps.
