I made these a couple of weeks ago but had forgotten to share – Hubby had needed a card for the next day and of course I had nothing in my card stash suitable.
He chose this first one
I used various strips of patterned paper. I stamped the “happy” from PTI Birthday bash sentiments with versafine onyx black and clear heat embossed. I cut the “birthday” from PTI Birthday trio die – I used the cut out in the card below whilst I inlaid with green cardstock.
This one is left for another time
I used The Craft’s Meow Good times stamped in SU old olive ink along with PTI Polka Dot Parade #5 stamped with versafine onyx black and PTI Birthday die from the first card.
This morning I am off to the school book parade. Ms A (9) is dressed as the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland – a dance costume I made for her a few years ago.
Have a great weekend
Thanks for stopping and leaving all your lovely comments.
I friend I met through playgroup is having a Birthday this weekend. I have made this card for her. I think there will be one or two beverages to celebrate as well as lots of laughs and dancing with friends and possibly a few pics taken.
I have used 3 stamp sets (see below for exact names) from The Craft’s Meow to make the “Photo”. Stamped using Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point Ink and markers from Stampin UP!
I am linking this up to these challenges
Before I go just want to put my mum hat on and share some great news. Miss E (17) and Miss S (13) are swimming for their school on Thursday night. Well done. The best news is Miss E has made captain of the team – she found out earlier this morning at a team meeting. What a great start to her last year of high school.
Sadly I have made this card for Miss S (13) to give to one of her class mates. I personally don’t know the family, but it is sad when you can empathise with what the family is going through and will continue to live with.
I have used Hero Arts Be Happy and a recent win from The Craft’s Meow Soaring High.
Thanks for stopping by.
PS – It’s still hot. So hot I didn’t have to bake my top mat from my Epic 6 – I just popped it in the sun for a bit and it was flat again. I usually put them in the oven after we take the food out!
Hope to share something more cheerful before the end of the week.
Miss S (13) has a another party tomorrow night and needs a card! I’ll let her decide which one she takes. I am rather partial to the stars.
I have used Annabelle Stamps Tomorrow’s Dream, Boy’s Party and The Craft’s Meow – Good Times along with some washi tape (#10 & # 13) from The Stamp Spot. The inks and markers are SU Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and Tempting Turquoise and the cs used for layering is also tempting turquoise.
It has been so hot I haven’t had the curtains and blinds open much – just as I was ready to take the pics of these cards the sky turned black and the heavens opened up – Please forgive the really bad photography! Not that I don’t want the rain I just wish it had waited 5 more minutes.
I am linking these upto the challenge at Annabelle Stamps (if I’m not too late!)
Sorry this is a long post. Hope you can bear with me.
I have made this card for a friend’s husband – apparently he isn’t happy about “the number”. I might be the same when I get there! I used punches to create the angry bird – I was inspired by a something I saw on a forum.
There is a tutorial here http://stampinwithniki.blogspot.com.au/2011/12/angry-birds-tutorial.html.
Another friend shares the same birthday and I made this for her
I used lots of different sentiment stamps to make the word panel – if I miss naming one please forgive me. I also used some dies to create the flourish and the felt flowers. When I gave this to my friend this morning she couldn’t believe I had individually stamped each word.
and another version of this for Miss A’s godmother
and after seeing the angry bird I made for the card above one of Miss E’s oldest friends made a comment so I made this tag as a book mark for her.
I used TCM Good Times stamped with PTI Blueberry sky ink stamped straight onto my card base. The cardstock is from my stash. I punched some small stars and added glossy accents. The sentiment is from the same set I used a circle punch tool ( took from the shed – I don’t think its going back!) to make the notches and popped it up with foam tabs.
This is another card to have on hand – I think it would suit either a boy or a girl.
