More Birthday Cards....Caution...Photo Overload!!

My daughter in law recently asked me to make some birthday cards for her to give to employees on their birthday.  Sometimes, I get quite a stack of cards, but it just so happens that I was almost completely out of any type of cards.  My card making recently has just been to keep up with birthdays in my family.  Anyway, I digress....I've made the following cards for her to share with the people she works with....

This first set of 11 cards are for my daughter in law.  If you want to see them bigger, you'll just need to click on them individually.

Elephant stamp is from Maymay Stamps.  The black and white card was made using a die I got from Amazon.  Not sure who makes it.

Stacked laundry images from a Maymay Stamp set.  Floral card has punched edge and a SU stamp used for the flowers and branches.

This first card is a bird from the Tim Holtz crazy birds stamp set and sentiments.  Second card is simple a SSS flower die stacked 4 times and adhered on top of patterned paper.

 Another SSS flower die inset into a piece of kraft card stock.  Sentiment from PTI.  Second card is just the reverse of the previous.

Embossed background. Sentiment from Hero Arts birthday set from several different companies. Second card is also embossed background and stamp is from the same HA set.

 The sentiment on this card is from the same HA set and is cut out and popped up on a pink card base that has been stamped with a background stamp.

The horse card is for one of my granddaughters 15th birthday.  Her favorite thing in the world is horses, so I thought this might make her smile.  The second card with the money roll is for my grandson who is turning 16.  The plastic bubble for the $$ is from MFT.  It actually about the size of a tube of lip balm.  I used a 3D embossing folder for the background and created a tear strip on the inside layer so he could remove the money without tearing up the card. LOL!

These last four are cards I've made in preparation for upcoming family birthdays.  Used lots of dies, some nuvo drops, shiny paper and glitter paper. 

Thanks for hanging in until the end! LOL!!  I've really been on a cardmaking spree this week! Thanks so much for stopping by and as always....I love it when you leave me a comment!

Another Birthday.....

Next week is my baby boy's birthday...of course, he isn't really a baby, because he'll be 41 years old!  To ME, he'll always be my baby! 😉

Since I know he doesn't read my blog, I feel free to share his card with you.  

I believe this type of card is called a lever card.  Not too difficult to make.  I watched a couple of videos at youtube and got it done.  I used some blue card stock to make the card base.  I cut out a circle in the front of the card with a SSS stitched circle die.  I saved that circle to use to put back in the center of the hole. The leaves were stamped and cut with another Altenew's Leaf Canopy stamp and die set.  I cut another smaller circle out of white card stock and layered it over the blue circle cut from the front of the card.

 I used the same Altenew stamp set to stamp the inside of the card (on the white folded piece and the sentiment "Happy Birthday" is from SSS Beautiful Flowers stamp set and the "I love you" is from Sugar Pea Designs Everyday Sentiments.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  So glad you took the time to visit me. Please know your comments are always welcomed and appreciated!

I'm back!  And it's only been about a month since my last post! 😄  I wanted to share a card that I've just finished for my daughter's 45th birthday...WOW!  is she really 45!  Time sure does fly, doesn't it!

I decided to make a tunnel card for her this year. 

I embossed a panel with a "happy birthday" embossing folder that I've had forever.  The small flowers are punched with an old punch and the centers of the flowers are Nuvo drops.  The leaf is a die cut from Sizzix.  The two circles were cut with a SSS die.

Here's the inside of the card.  I used the double edged stitching dies from SSS.  Flowers are punched with an old EK Success punch and the I added a few doodles on each of the blooms.  Red birds are also a die, can't remember who makes them.  I inked the background with distress oxide ink and stamped the sentiments from SSS Everyday Messages.   The branches were also cut with a die - probably another SSS die. Not a quick and easy card, but I like how it turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by and please know that I truly appreciate each and every comment!

Hugs to all!
