Happy Birthday card




Here's a card I made using a technique I saw online. The original post was based on using left over ribbons but I changed it to washi tape. I stamped the sentiment, ran it through my embossing maching and then added the cake that I made freehand. I then stamped an image that had a candle and cut out the part I didn't want.

Pretty much easy peasy.

Until my next post,

King for a Day card




Here's a card I made for a father and son who have birthdays very close to one another. The basics of the card came from a Hot off the Press kit. I supplied the card base and bling that I decided to add simulating jewels.

Eat more cake card




I had this alcohol ink background sitting around and discovered it worked well with the cupcake embellishments I had. I added them to piece of bright green cardstock and a card is done.

Make a wish card




Card 3 of 3 using the starburst technique and DCWV paper. For this one I added a K&Co embellishment. When you pull on the tab the candles on the cake are out.

Birthdays are good for you card




Card 2 of 3 using the starburst technique with DCWV paper. This one has the focal point in the center. I used a Spellbinders die cut for the center and stamped the sentiment.

What's the secret card




Here's a card I made using some papers from DCWV and a starburst technique. You cut papers into rectangles of various widths. Then you cut from one long corner to the opposite to make long thin triangles. Next, arrange them towards a focal point. It could be a corner or the center. I've got a few more cards over the next weeks with different focal points. This one is a birthday card using a stamped image from Inky Antics that I colored with some gel pens.

Over the hill card


Here's a card I made for a family member using stamps and a folded technique from Repeat Impressions. I was in a bind for a guy card then I remembered I had some of these cards sort of ready but not assembled.

The base of the card was made with dual color double sided plain paper. I covered one side with washi tape that gave it a patterned look. Here's what the card looks like when it is "closed".


When you open the card here's the other side.

Elvis Birthday Cards




Here's a set of four cards I made using Elvis stamps by Stampsmith and paper from EK Success. I cut them with my Silhouette so no fussy cutting was required. It doesn't look as such in the photo but each Elvis is sort of elevated with a homemade accordion "thingy". I was hoping it would make it look as though Elvis was swinging his hips. 

Each one has different embellishments. the upper left has some stickers, the upper right has some stars that were cut out with a circle punch and elevated with pop dots. The bottom left has the same circles but I also added a bit of instruments on a music scale (at least I think that's what they call it). The lower right has some musical notes I cut out with a punch.

All cards are for guys who are also kings (get the pun!), hope they like them.

Four sentiment card





I made this card at a make and take at a scrap/card show a few years ago but never sent it. I decided to add some sentiments from Hero Arts and turn it into a birthday card. It uses Just For Fun stamps. I like the outline stamp. It is sort of a faux postage look.

Hold You Dear Card






Quite a few years ago I took a class at a stamp/scrap show and made a card using an Art Gone Wild stamp. I thought I had a template for the card but I couldn't find it. I recreated one using my Silhouette but changed the size to fit an A2 envelope. In doing so I needed to rearrange the items. I've since adjusted my design to make the circles closer together so the candy pieces can fit on the top and bottom of the circles. This card is for a little girl, hope she likes it.
