You can never have too many birthday cards! – part 2

This weekend I was able to make 10 additional cards for my 6×6 paper pad challenge. I think I might still be able to make a few more cards with this paper pad since I have a some pieces left. I also decided to make a video to show you how I make my cards. I usually start with a card sketch that I find on Pinterest and then I choose my paper and stamps. Making cards is not hard and it helps me relax so I highly recommend it. If you have any questions about where to start, just send me a message.

Here are the cards I made this past week. What do you think of the color combination?

I hope you have a great day!

Hello,

While I patiently wait to place my preorder for the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog, I have decided to make a few cards.

Fall is my favorite season so I decided to make some Fall cards. I really love all the Fall colors and that’s where I got my inspiration from.

I didn’t use any DSP (designer series paper) for my cards. Instead, I used my ink pads to create a “Fall” background and then I cut out my leaves using the Seasonal Layers dies.

I cut out a lot of leaves, but only used a few for my cards since I will be using the rest in other cards/projects.

Here are the supplies and measurements:

  • Card base: thick whisper white cardstock (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).
  • Mossy meadow cardstock (5 1/8″ x 4 1/8″)
  • Blackberry bliss cardstock (5 1/8″ x 3 1/4″)
  • Early espresso cardstock (5 1/8″ x 3 1/4″)
  • Painted Harvest photopolymer stamp set
  • Woodland embossing folder
  • Whisper white cardstock
  • Stitched shapes dies (ovals)
  • Ink: crushed curry, pumpkin pie, cherry cobbler, mossy meadow, early espresso, blackberry bliss, rich razzleberry
  • Stamping sponges
  • Snail adhesive
  • Stampin’ dimensionals

Here is a picture of the cards, I made 2 of each.

I really love the way they turned out.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!

Rainy days are perfect for cardmaking!

Hello,

One of my favorite things about cardmaking is that I can practically do it anywhere or anytime I want to, I dont have to rely on fancy “tools” to make a beautiful card. I especially love making cards during a rainy day.

That’s why on Saturday, when we had a really bad storm that caused a power outage in my neighborhood, I decided to make some cards with my little girls.

Here are the cards we made. I hope you love them as much as I do! Which one is your favorite?

Picture Perfect Party Suite – Day 4

Hello,

I hope you had an amazing weekend and had some time to make some cards. I actually spent my weekend getting everything ready for my Picture Perfect Party workshop.

Today, I want to share another card I made using the Picture Perfect Party Suite.

I used Whisper White cardstock for the card base which measures 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. For the first layer, I used Peekaboo Peach cardstock, 5 1/4″ x 4″. I decided to use the patterned Picture Perfect Party DSP for my next layer, which is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″.

Once I had my layers together, I took a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and cut it down to measure 2 3/8″ x 2 3/8″. I then adhered my square to the bottom right corner of my card. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the candles from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set using the following ink pads: Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, and Peekaboo Peach. I then decided to cut it into a square using my Stiched Shapes Framelits Dies and Big Shot. After, i ran it through the Big Shot, I layered it on top of the Bermuda Bay square on my card, as you can see in the picture.

For the sentiment, I took a scrap piece of Peekaboo Peach cardstock made a little banner with my scissors and stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink. I used some dimensionals and adhered it to the card.

What do you think? Is this a card you would make? Give it a try a leave a comment with a picture of your card.

Have a great day,
