Mandala style birthday card





Coloring is all the rage now. I bought three books a while back and finally used one for a birthday card. I used a portion of the image and centered it on a piece of cardstock. I colored with my Prismacolor markers which are alcohol based. The top picture is what I used on the card. I got bleed through on the actual image, the second picture shows that. I really liked the bleed through so I ended up adhering the colored image to acetate so you can see both. I still have the cardstock image which also had some of the bleed through but it is much more subtle. I haven't decided what to do with that.

Happy Birthday card






Here's a very simple card I made from a One Sheet Wonder template and materials from The Paper Loft. This  card is for a young man so I kept it simple. I had a circle stamp with various sentiments that you can change. It fit the circles on the paper so there you go... card complete.

Welcome little one card









A while back there was an addition to my family. Luckily I had a card ready. I can't take much credit for this except for the assembly. All materials were from a Hot off the Press card kit.

The main sentiment is covered with vellum paper with the heart design so when you open the card the sentiment is visible again.

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.

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.
