Happiest Wishes On Your Birthday

I was looking on Pinterest for some cards using designer papers.  I had a whole Paper Studio 4 x 6 paper pad that had a lot of bold sparkly birthday patterns that I really liked, but I found they are sometimes hard to make a card with.  I found quite a few examples where you use the patterned paper on the bottom half, separate it with some ribbon,  and use the white space above the ribbon to stamp your sentiment.  I followed those examples mostly, but instead of just stamping the sentiment on the top white portion, I added a framed sentiment in between the two layers.  I was really happy with the results, and saved this one for my granddaughters upcoming birthday.  The others I will donate to SendASmile4Kids.  The cupcake designer paper on the bottom half came from the stack I mentioned above...Paper Studio's Birthday Extravaganza stack, and has glitter on the cupcake papers as well as the icing!  I stamped the sentiment from a Stampin Up set I've had forever in Momento's Rich Cocoa ink & die cut it out with a stitched square die. Then I backed it with some pink card stock from my stash, also die cut with the next size up stitched square. I really love how they all turned out!!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!

Hoppy Birthday

I've been trying to get another pack of cards made & sent off to the SendASmile4Kids organization.  My husband is actually working tomorrow part of the day, then coming home to cut the grass!  Not much of a holiday, but we had not real plans anyway.  So I'm going to concentrate on making a lot of cards tomorrow.  I did manage to get a few fun cards done the last couple of days using Technique Tuesday's Felix the Frog stamp & die set.  Below is one of those finished cards.  I stamped Felix on some green designer paper then cut him out using the die.  The striped paper & blue card stock were from my stash.  I heat embossed in white the sentiment & cut it out using a stitched bubble die by Spellbinders.  The white panel behind Felix was cut using a stitched square die.  Then I added the two blue enamel dots from my stash.  I thought it turned out pretty cute!!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
