Happy 80th Birthday

Recently my mom celebrated her 80th birthday with friends and family and this is the card I ended up making for the occasion.

I loved making it - I got the cutting file from here.

I also created a sunflower Happy Birthday banner using my handy dandy Cricut - pretty sure the banner flags were from Art Philosophy.  The sunflowers were definitely made from Art Philosophy.  I can't recall where I saw them initially but they were fun to make.  The centres of the flowers were embossed with the Dot embossing folder.  Everything was glued on using Liquid Glass and I used yellow yarn to tie it all together.

A fun time was had by all - it was so great re-connecting with folks :)

Enjoy your day!

Nice card that came together quite quickly ... I used D1554 Christmas Village (retired), Gold embossing powder, S1510 Twinkle, Versamark, White Pines Paper, 3 D foam tape, Corner Rounder, mini glue dots and misc ribbon I had.

Don't forget the Stamp of the Month, Twinkle is only around until Oct 31st and then it's gone!  

Enjoy your day!

I don't recall where I saw the inspiration for this card but I just love it (will link to it when I find it again; UPDATE, found it here!)!  So colourful!

It is made using the White Pines paper, and the October SOTM Twinkle.

I also did not make any notes while making the card but it looks like I edged all the pieces with Cocoa ink and the lightbulbs were likely done in Fern and Cranberry inks.

Have a twinkle-y day!

Christmas Love

Hello, I'm back!  A fun little card ... I used the October SOTM Twinkle here, the stars in Fern and the Christmas Love in Cranberry.  Background is the Confetti embossing folder and I used our new Circle Diffuser set with it to leave a blank space to stamp in.  I attached the bow with our mini-glue dots.  Also used our Corner Rounder on the card base and the card front.

Have a great day!

I just love the words that go with this month's SOTM, Twinkle.

Here I used a retired stamp set, I Believe, with Black pigment ink and then embossed with Clear embossing powder for the Santa image.  On a piece of vellum, I stamped the word Believe with Versamark, and then used Gold embossing powder.  I also used the star from the White Pines Scrapbooking Workshop kit stamp set, used Versamark and Gold Embossing powder. Attached with Mini Gluedots.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Had some fun using stuff that I have but hadn't used yet and thanks to Melody Lane.

Used Liquid Glass to attach the Happy Birthday to the card and 'celebrate' came from a retired CTMH stamp set called Say It With Style, still one of my favourites, stamped in Black ink!

I used the Project Life Fuse Tool to create the shaker part of the card and some assorted sequins I had.

The inside is stamped in Black ink, using a sentiment from the stamp set from the Artfully Sent Collection.

Gonna have some fun making more of these cards!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi there, playing around with the Believe in Christmas set from the new Holiday Expressions catty ... also used the Diamond embossing folder, our retired red glitter glitz, Cranberry ink and the Artistry cartridge to cut the banner for the front of the card.  Coloured Santa with our ShinHan marker R11.

Have a lovely day!

A Belated Birthday

This is a belated birthday card I made for a friend - the design is from I think our Cut Above card in last year's catalogue - I did it with the Heartstrings paper pack (retired), White Daisy pigment ink, Clear embossing powder, our thick twine, 3D foam tape.  Sentiment is from Belated Birthday (retired).

Have a wonderful day!
