Build-a-Cake Birthday

There is just something so bright and cheery about a card when you use yellow on it!

Pretty straight forward.  The only notable thing about this one is that I used a black journal pen to outline the cake and doodle on it a little.

Happy creating!  :-)

Paper:  Canary Paper Fundamentals;  White Daisy, Lagoon CS; Black Glitter paper
Stamps:  Build-a-Cake, Stitch Wonder

Watercolor Flower Birthday Card

Here is a little bit of a spoiler...

The new Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog will be available on April 1st, and I used a few of the new products on this card.

 I embossed the flower image from Wavy Blooms with white embossing powder on a piece of watercolor paper.

Then I pulled out my old waterbrush to "paint" the inks onto the flower.  I used a little Glacier ink around the flower and blended it out, but it is pretty light and hard to see in the photo.

Once the paper was dry, I used my paper trimmer to trim the watercolor paper closer to the flower, and then trimmed around it with my scissors.

Happy creating!  :-)

Supplies used are all CTMH (unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Blossom; Watercolor Paper (other)
Stamps:  Wavy Blooms, Blossom WOTG Cardmaking Set
Inks:  Sunset, Smoothie, Pear, Glacier, Versamark
Embellishments:  Aqua Dots, Sunset ribbon - retired
Other:  Waterbrush - retired, White and Black embossing powders, 3D foam tape, micro-tip scissors

Happy Fabulous Birthday

Here is a perfect card for my friend's birthday.

 (Inspired by this card found on Pinterest by Lisa A.)

I created the stripe by adding strips of black cardstock onto the white card base.

I wanted a bright pink flower for my card, so I had to dig into my retired SU ink colors to find Pink Passion.  
Love it.  It really pops.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used are all CTMH (unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Black, White Daisy CS, Pink Passion CS (retired SU)
Stamps:  You're the Bomb, Happy to Be Friends, Pemberly WOTG set - retired

Embellishments:  Bitty Sparkle

Set of 4 Hopscotch Cards

I slightly tweaked my past Snowhaven 12 Christmas Cards Workshop to create this pretty set of Hopscotch cards.

(All of you CTMH Consultants will appreciate the concept that I used 1 sheet of bulk paper for these cards, and still had enough paper left over for two more cards.)

I will be offering this as an upcoming workshop in April, so if you are local, watch for details.  (You can pick the sentiments you want to use.)

And just a reminder that the Hopscotch paper packet (and matching accessories) is available only until March 31st, so be sure to get yours ordered right away.

Happy creating!  :)

Happy Birthday Balloon

I saw this card on Pinterest a while back and thought it was so simply cute.

Just had to re-create it using CTMH Sunset Paper Fundamentals paper.

To cut the balloon shape, I used an old Coluzzle circle and cut the circle shape, leaving a little gap where I didn't cut it, so I could hand-cut the bottom part of the balloon.

I popped up the bottom portion of the balloon with 3D foam tape, and left the top flush with the card.
Gives it a little dimension.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used are all CTMH:
Paper:  Sunset Paper Fundamentals; White Daisy CS
Stamp:  Joyful Birthday
Ink:  Slate
Embellishments:  Sorbet 3D Heart, Grey Baker's Twine - retired
Other:  Circle Coluzzle - retired, Micro-tip scissors, 3D foam tape
