Happiest of Birthdays to You

Hello friends.  It is Thursday and time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday.  This time it is "Anything Goes" as long as it is a birthday project.

Here is my card:

I stamped and embossed the flowers and leaves from Poppy Stamps Little Kindness set on vellum.  I inked the backs of the flowers with SU Regal Rose and the leaves with SU Gumball Garden inks and then die cut them with the matching Poppy Stamps Little Kindness die set.  I added a flatback pearl to the center of the flowers.  The sentiment from SU Birthday Blooms is stamped in SU Smokey Slate ink and die cut with MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Oval.  I mounted this on foam tape and added the flowers and leaves to the left side.  The DSP is some older SU Pretty In Pink, matted with matching CS.

Now check out all the fabulous cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

Just For You

This is my card for this week's MFT Sketch #345.
Sketch Challenge 345 #mftstamps

I used 2 MFT Funky Flowers stamped in SU Smokey Slate gray ink on pink dotted paper, sponged them with SU Pretty In Pink ink (retired), shaped them, layered them and added a yellow enamel dot to the center.  The leaves are stamped on Pear Pizzazz CS.  I used the middle frame from MFT Stitched Circle Frames and mounted it with foam tape.  The sentiment is from an older SU set, stamped in Smokey Slate ink.  The paper is from MFT Dots & Stripes Confection 6x6 pad.   The white panel is partially embossed with SU Decorative Dots EF.

Bundle of Joy

I am sharing a card I made using Viva la Verve August sketch (so glad to see Verve Viva la Verve sketches back) and Just Us Girls Word Week - Shower challenges.


I thought I would make a baby card since I had these papers out from just finishing a Baby Mini Album (will post photos later).  The papers are from Authentique Cuddle Boy Collection 12 x 12 pad.
The blue mats are Recollections CS.  The stamped ring is from Verve Strong Anchor and the sentiment and cute elephant is from Verve To The Moon.  I mounted them with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

MFT Sketch #344

This is a card I made for a very dear friend using this week's MFT Sketch 344.
Sketch Challenge 344 #mftstamps
I turned the sketch vertical to accomodate the sentiment which is from MFT Pretty Poppies (discontinued).  The DSP is from MFT Dots & Stripes Confection 6x6 pad and cut with MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edges.  The flowers are made with MFT LJD Scribble Roses stamped with SU Pink Pirouette ink and the overlay was made with the matching Scibble Roses die and SU Regal Rose CS.  The center flower is raised with foam tape.  I added a Carta Bella Enamel Dot to the centers.  The top two strips are also Regal Rose.  The MFT Royal Leaves were cut with SU Wild Wasabi CS.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Seize the Birthday - Tie One On

Happy Thursday friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time our "Toppings" option is "Tie One On".  Remember it is an option and the only requirement is that it has to be a birthday project.



For my card I used some black & white Baker's twine and tied it around the panel cut with MFT Rectangle Peek-a-Book Window.  The paper is from Authentique Grace/Strength 12x12 pad.  The CS is some older SU More Mustard, which matched the DSP perfectly.  I cut the MFT Upsy Daisy die (retired) from the same CS and added a black enamel dot to the center.  The leaves are MFT Simple Leaf Flourish (retired) that was already cut.  I think I should have used a little darker green, but it is done and it looks good IRL.  The sentiment is from TPC Studio Happy Birthday set.

You should check out all the fabulous creations by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will be inspired to join us.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,

New Baby Card

Hi friends.  My daughter requested a baby card with a jungle theme for a baby shower she is attending.  So I used The Paper Studio's Little Safari paper and stickers.  I added some brown enamel dots around the sentiment which is a stamp from Kaisercraft Peek-a-Boo set.  I stamped it with SU Chocolate Chip ink on some of the DSP from the 12 x 12 paper pad and die cut it with a Spellbinders die.  I traced the die on the CS and fussy cut the mat.  The animals are stickers from the Little Safari Set.

This is the inside of the card.  I fussy cut the image from one of the DSP sheets and adnered it on the inside.  I stamped the Studio K sentiment with the Choc. Chip ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

I appreciated it when you take time to leave me a comment.

Happy Stamping
