One Wild Ride Birthday Card

Well, I'm still making birthday cards to have in my stash.  Today's card is made with SU's One Wild Ride.  I couldn't believe how quick this card came together.  For my base card, I used Basic Black CS and for my first layer More Mustard.  My second layer was made with some DSP in my stash that I cut vertically so the first layer could show through.


I used my stitched circle die to cut Whisper White which I stamped the motorcycle on.  I offset it and trimmed it down.  I ended up fussy cutting the other sentiments for the front of the card and then popped them up with some dimensionals.  For some one that doesn't like to fussy cut I have been doing it a lot lately!! 


I used the sentiment in this stamp set for the inside and adhered some extra DSP paper on the bottom of the card.  Well, I have quite a few birthday cards in my stash now, but one can never have enough I have found.  It is almost 100 degrees here today!!  Needless to say, we are not going far!!  Have a good week!.

Perennial Birthday Card

I have used the sentiments in this stamp set a lot lately, but I realized that I never used the stamps!  I am working on making birthday cards, so I decided to get some ink on the stamps.  I was really happy how these cards turned out.


I saw this card on Pinterest.  What I like about it is that you can make this card in so many different colors.  I used Melon Mambo CS for my base, Powder ink for my first layer and Whisper White for my next layer.


I colored my flowers in with Melon Mambo, Powder Pink and Pear Pizzazz with my Aqua pen.  Then I layered my sentiment with the same colors.


I decorated my inside with another cute flower and used my favorite sentiment again in this stamp set.  I am definitely going to make some more in different color combinations.  Hope everyone is having a good week!

Butterfly Basics Birthday Card

I have been working on some birthday cards and I knew when I saw this card on Pinterest that I wanted to make it for my daughter's birthday which is coming up.  What I didn't realize is all the fussy cutting I would have to do!! LOL!  I used Whisper White for my base card and on the left side I stamped the diagonal background image in basic black.  On the left side I stamped the honeycomb background image in Pool Party.


For my layer, I used Shimmery White CS and sponged it with Pool Party and adhered it to the base card with some dimensionals.  I stamped the honeycomb image again in Pool Party on Whisper White and then stamped the butterfly image in Melon Mambo over the top and then again on its own.  I then cut them out with the dies.  The fern image was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist on Shimmery White CS and I cut it out - that was fun!!  I then stamped the floral image in Basic Black on Shimmery White CS and used my aqua painter to color it with Lemon Lime Twist and Melon Mambo and then fussy cut that out as well.  Then I just adhered my images down with some dimensionals adding some gold thread behind them.  I placed my butterflies on the page making sure I left room for the sentiment, which I stamped in Basic Black as well on Shimmery White CS, cut it out and adhered it with tiny dimensionals.  I actually had some matching Melon Mambo sequins which I scattered around.


For my inside sentiment, I used SU's Whimsical Words and stamped some tiny butterflies with Melon Mambo.  Yes, it was a lot of cutting, but I was really pleased how it turned out.  The fern was the worst but the rest wasn't too bad!  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy 4th of July!!!

We hope everyone is enjoying this week of celebration.  It has been so hot here in the North East, but we are still planning on celebrating today with family but mostly inside.  I came across a post I had made many years ago.  A 4th of July card that I was really proud of and thought I would post it again for those of you who may have not seen it!  It definitely tested me, but I was so happy with the results.



I always make these 4th of July goodies as well.  The people in the Wellness Center always look out for them.




Have a wonderful, joyful day with your family and friends!
