Another month has flown by and I don't know where the time goes! I've stayed very busy doing some vinyl work for my church, but I did find the time to make a few birthday cards. Seems like birthday cards are the ones I use the most and it doesn't hurt to have a few on standby! I didn't go out and check to see if these cards met any of the current challenges....just thought I'd share with you.
I really love this first card. I used a NBUS stamp from SSS (Beautiful Flowers) and I love that it covers the entire length of the card without having to mask and stamp! I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils then cut around the right side and popped it off the card base. I added a piece of pink behind the flowers. The sentiment is also from SSS. I also added a few Nuvo drops in pearl.
This card is just something I was playing with....the tulips are a small stamp from Clearly Besotted and have matching dies. I stamped, colored with Copics, and popped on a white card base that I made some clouds on using a piece of masking paper and distress inks. The sentiment is also from Clearly Besotted.
For this card, I used the Peek A Boo die from MFT, the large stitched rectangle was cut with the SSS die. I had one tulip left from the previous card so I popped it into the opening and added a distress inked background. I also added a few tiny pieces of bling.
This card is mostly made with Washi tapes. I added strips of Washi tape to a 4.5 x 5.5 inch background, then adhered it to a white card base. I used some MFT alpha dies to cut the "happy" from the panel, then cut foam letters too. I added them back into the cut outs from the Washi panel. The "birthday" sentiment was stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed in white. It looked kind of plain, so I added some thin strips of the green to form a border.
This is a card I made for a friend of mine who will soon turn 76. I always try to send him something unique, so I made this slider card. I made this card using techniques from a video from Jennifer McGuire. You can see what it looks like opened up in the photo below. The sentiment was die cut 4 times and layered from a MFT die. I cut the sliding mechanism with the Cameo (although I've since ordered the die to do this). The balloons are from Sunny Studios and have a matching die. The sentiment inside the card is from PTI (and I've had it forever!)
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you've left me a comment, please know that I sincerely appreciate each and every one! Hope to see you again soon!
