Bee Happy Birthday

>> Sunday, May 1, 2016

Today I have a quick card to share.

I stamp the Bee Happy with Rose Bud ink, sponged some Antiqe Linon around the edges, then die cut. Some ribbon was added and layered on to pink card stock. The background was made using the Lines O'Plenty Background and the Splatter Background 

Have a wonderful day,



It's Your Birthday!

>> Saturday, April 30, 2016

Good morning!
Here is another "day" card to go with the "It's A New Day" challenge
from Thursday.

I did a dip and dunk for my background again on this card (that is, spray Dylusions Ink on a piece of foil or Kraft sheet, spray with water and then dip/dunk the cardstock panel into it).
Today I've made my cranes to look like the great blue heron instead of cranes,  the shape is perfect.  I added a sun/moon to the background and some white highlights to the water.  For the sentiment I only stamped the part of the sentiment that says "It's Your Birthday!"  (since there are no bees on this card).
I think this makes a great guy birthday card.
Most guys like anything nature so this fits the bill.
I hope you are all having a great weekend...I am!
I'm at a weekend stamping retreat!!
So much fun playing with 100 other women,
stamping our hearts out in 4 amazing classes!!
I LOVE stamping!!
Thanks for visiting today!!

Glitter Grad

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's getting to be that time of year again..when all the graduations ramp up. Hubby has a niece & nephew graduating so I made this for the nephew using his school colors of green & gold. For the grad cap, I stamped it, colored it, added some gold gel pen to the tassel,  then overstamped it w/ Versafine. I die cut it w/ stitched circle then matted w/ a gold glitter circle. On the star panel, I did the same..adding gold gel pen to some of the stars & coloring others.  
Some die cut circles w/ punched out star centers were attached onto gold glitter circles & added. Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Festive Birthday

>> Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Who doesn't need some more birthday cards?

I made this one a cheerful as I could so I put on lots of color and stars.

I stamped the Birthday Candle Burst image a couple of times and cut out all the candles.  The background was made using the Starry Background image and then shading in some yellow.  I used the One more candle greeting to top it all off but I cut it out an made little banners to add to the festive look.

Hope your week is going well.




Kitty Trio

>> Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I made this birthday card with my niece in mind.  She's definitely a cat lover and with her birthday coming up in the beginning of May I knew I wanted to use the cute Happy Cat Sitting stamp to make her a card.  

I paired the image stamp with the Purrfectly Birthday Greeting by stamping it on the front of the the card panel.  After embossing it with a paw print embossing folder, I took my 1 1/4" punch and punched out 3 peek holes for the kitty cats.  I stamped the kitty three times and used a 1 3/4" punch to punch them out, positioning them behind the openings, changing up the directions they were looking out. 

Using a larger scallop and circle punch, I made some frames for the openings to give the card a more finished look, adding a bit of ribbon and a punched mini heart for embellishment.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is Purr-fectly wonderful too!


Best Wishes

Today I have a card created for my niece who recently got engaged! I still cannot believe she is old enough to be engaged. She'll always be that little girl running around, playing, and enjoying life to me. Maybe I just don't want to admit how old I'm getting!? Anyway, here's the card.

Her favorite color is purple so I had to go with that. I started by embossing the light purple panel with a rose EF. This is layered on darker purple. Next I stamped the white strip with the small silhouette heart with light purple ink, added it to a dark purple layer and attached it. Next I added the white lacy ribbon down the side and attached everything to the white card base. The Engagement greeting was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, die cut and layered on a dark purple die cut piece. I'm pretty sure my niece will like this purple card.

Have you checked out this week's challenge here at DRS Designs. It is a color challenge.  Hope you can play along!

Thanks for stopping by,
