Happy Birthday Card




I've had this background for a long time and finally made a card with it. I added the embellishments and another card is done easy peasy.

King of the Road card



Here's another card I made using the pulled string technique. This time I used some metallic reinkers. The stamps are from Crafty Secrets and it's obviously a birthday card.

TV and cookies card




The background stamp on this card is from Hero Arts but I can't remember who made the sentiment stamp. The other embellishments are odds and ends I had hanging around. This card is for a guy so I wanted a bit of a rustic look to it.

Love card



I saw this technique on the Club Scrap blog and decided to give it a try. I used the reinkers I had on hand with some basic string. I used the clean up rag on the edges for an accent and finished the card with a Hero Arts stamp.

Happy Birthday card





Here's a card I made using papers and embellishments from Cosmo Cricket. The stamp is from Hero Arts. I just bought the Tim Holtz stamping platform and tried to use it on this card. Unfortunately since I already had the double stack embellishment on the card it didn't stamp well. I took the stamp off that tool and then used an acrylic block but I didn't match it up well enough so that's why I added the yellow paper underneath. Note to self -- stamp then embellish.

Three butterflies




Here's a card I made using my Spellbinders and some ordinary embellishments. My inspiration was this post by Jennifer McGuire. Instead of a diecut I used a Spellbinders Impressabilities design. I added three ordinary butterfly embellishments that had adhesive on the back. I aligned them on one side of the card and then put some baby powder on the half that I didn't want to stick. I heard of this trick a long time ago but never needed to use it.

Living forever card




This card uses the same background paper as last weeks card. For this one I used some old Marvy Metallic markers that I thinned out with water and applied with a brush. I then added a stamped image from Inky Antics that I colored with pencils and the sentiment.

They say it's your birthday...card




Here's a card I made using my Silhouette. I downloaded a .jpg and then transformed it to a cutting file. I got this file for free from Vector Open Stock and is a Creative Commons file. I used a background stamp of some sheet music (not the Beatles) and then added the cutting file and the musical embellishment.
