Happy Birthday Wishes

I'm back again today as I wanted to share this Birthday Card that finally came together. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Add A Die Cut  

Decided to pull out a few stamp sets to create this shaker for one of my Friends on IG to celebrate her birthday and wish her the best all year round. 
To create the background, I pulled out the You Matters background stamp from Simon Says Stamp and stamped it down using a light pink ink. When it comes to using light ink, I always use my Misti in case I want to re stamp the image and make it a little darker.

Moving on, next I pulled out the Big Scripty Greetings stamp set, also from Simon Says Stamp and heat embossed the words using Silver Pearl from WOW 

Afterwards, I used the Stitched Circles Wafer dies from Simon Says Stamp
to die cut a circle for my shaker. Than, I saw the Circle Sayings set and wondered if it would work around the circle and happy it did.  

For the inside circle, I thought it would be fun to add some color and ink blending. The inks colors are (bottom to top): Hot LipsTeeny Bikini, and Melon from Simon Says Stamp   

I love this little girl from Lila's Heart set and couldn't resist but to color her using my copic markers. Since I wanted a few more hearts, I pulled out the Stacked Hearts Die and added a couple on top.

Last but not least, I added lots of Sparkling Clear Confetti along with lots of Iridescent Heart Confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

PPP Sending All My Love

Wanted to create some "Sending Love" cards to send out so I created two different ones using the same design. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of It Must be Love

This card was quick and easy to make using the new Love Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh and perfect for someone you care about. 

To create the background, I cut a 1 inch strip of Stratmore Bristol smooth paper and used some Distress Oxide inks rainbow theme. From right to left, here are the colors, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Broken China, and Wilted Violet.

Next, I ended up die cutting this beautiful heart twice, once with Gold Foil and second time with white just for the word.

To add the little hearts in Candied Apple color, I used the Cupids Friends set as it has three tiny hearts all together. From there, I thought to add more hearts in gold, so I used the new Love Sentiments stamp set and heat embossed in gold. 

For the word, "All My" I decided to heat emboss it using white against black card stock, again using the new Love Sentiments stamp set. To finish the card, I added three 4mm clear droplets.

After I finished the card above, I thought why not make a shaker as well. Therefore, I kept the same design but made it into a shaker card.

To create the 1 inch border rainbow, I masked the card base and did the ink blending right on top vs on a strip. Than, to create the shaker, I die cut the heart where I wanted it and used an inlay technique to keep to top of the card flush.

Last but not least, added some Iridescent Mini Heart Confetti along with Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix to add a little more sparkle.

Happy Birthday to a Little Boy


Joining another day of Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker. Also joining Seize the Birthday with Birthday Theme. 

I realized that I don't have any boy cards, so I decided to pull out the Birthday Friends set again from Pretty Pink Posh as these little kids are so cute. Also, used the Coordinating Die which came in handy to cut out the images. 

On one of my previous cards, I used the Stacked Edges 1 die to cut three strips using the slanted curve border. Keep in mind, I placed the border onto an A2 size panel and cut the strips where I wanted them. 

After die cutting, I looked at the negative pieces from the A2 panel and thought why not make another card using them and keep the same order of the cuts. 

Once again, I used Distress Oxide inks as they are fun to play with. From bottom to top here are the colors: Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, Broken China, and Salty Ocean.  

Next, I pulled out a Sun Ray stencil and sprayed it with water and put it on top of the strips. This added the rays to the card.  

Once again, I used these adorable Bee Friends to the scene along with the Coordinating die to help me cut them out and added some clouds using the Rainy Days set.

Last but not least, I added some Gold Mini Star Confetti as I wanted to add some sparkles. Added some foam mount tape to pop up the little boy and bees. The balloons were glued down directly to the base.

Sending You Love with Flowers

Back today with another card to join Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker. Lots of fun. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of It Must be Love

Decided to pull out this beautiful Spring Flowers set from Simon Says Stamp and color again using Polychromos pencils and really had fun. 

Once again, I did use my Misti tool to help me when it came to embossing directly over the image after I colored the flowers and leaves. Here, I decided to use a darker blue card stock and see how the colors would look on it and must say the reds really pop some color.

I'll try to list the colors that I used for this card in case you were interested in trying this technique of coloring on card stock using polychromos. 

For the sentiment, I decided to use the I Love You wafer die from Simon Says Stamp as I like the font and size. To pop the words up, I ran the die 3 times and glued them together. 

Last but not least, added some 4mm Metallic Gold sequins along with a couple of small clear droplets over the little flowers.

Sending You Love using the Love Shaker

Back today with another card to join Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker. Lots of fun. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of It Must be Love

This card was quick and easy to make using the new Love Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh and perfect for sending to someone you care about. 

I'm loving these new Cupids Friends set and matching Coordinating die which makes it easy to cut them perfect and fast. For this card, I used my Copic markers once again to color them and having fun with it. 

Basically, I ended up die cutting the Love Shaker die twice, once with white and second time with Ripe Raspberry card stock. From there, I did an inlay technique on the hearts.  

To finish off the card, I added a few Rose Gold Heart Confetti  and popped up the little Cupids using foam mount tape. 

Again, this card was quick and easy, so I did another one but using Electric Red and white card stock. 

For this card, I couldn't resist but to use this cute little bear from the Winter Friends set along with the Coordinating die

Again, to finish off the card, I added a few Rose Gold Heart Confetti  and popped up the little bear using foam mount tape. 

For the sentiment, I embossed the "SENDING YOU" from the Rainy Days Additions using white embossing powder.

Best Wishes on Your Birthday


Joining another day of Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker. Also joining Seize the Birthday with Birthday Theme. 

My friend is celebrating her birthday and I know she loves this Friends Forever set from Pretty Pink Posh so I decided to create a shaker card for her. All the images were colored using my copic markers.

To create the scene, I thought it would be great to add these adorable Bee Friends as they are perfect for background scenes and so cute. Here, I used the the Coordinating die for this set as it makes it easy to cut out the images.

For this card, I used one of my favorite dies....Storybook 1 and did some ink blending for the background adding grass and clouds. 

Next, I stamped the sentiment using the Everyday Greetings as I love the mix of the fonts. As I was putting this together, I thought this Scallop Frames die would be perfect to add to this card. 

To fill this shaker, I first glued down some Sparkling Clear Stars to stay in place before adding some Spring Green BeadsLast but not least, I added some foam mount tape to pop up the little girl and bees. 

Don't want to forget, the little balloon is from the new Birthday Friends set.

Sending Love and Prayers

Im back today with another card to join Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker. Lots of fun. Also, joining one more time over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes this week.

Here, I pulled out this beautiful Wishing You set from Altenew and wanted to create a sympathy card as I need one using my copic markers. Also, I used the Coordinating die to help me cut them out. 

For this card, I used the Scallop Borders 2 die from Pretty Pink Posh to create the background and have a slanted edge on the right hand side. Love the little scallops and stitching details of this border. 

For the sentiment, I decided to heat embossed using white embossing powder against black card stock so it would stand out. Popped up both images using white fun foam and added some 4mm Sparkling clear sequins to add some sparkles.

Added several white dots around using my white sharpie pen to finish off this card.
