Seize the Birthday - Summer Activities

 Hello friends.  After being off for a couple of months due to foot surgery,  I am happy to be joining my STB teammates for this fun challenge.  Barbara has chosen the "Topping" option of Summer Activities for this challenge.  The only requirement though, is that it has to be for a birthday.

 


 For my card I used an older MFT stamp set, Sprinkler Girl,  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics.  I also stamped her again on the tiny blue check pattern paper and fussy cut the bathing suit and glued it on.  I fussy cut her and the sprinkler and mounted them with foam tape to a scallop die cut panel to which I sponged on blue and green DOI for the sky and grass. The sentiment is from SU Peaceful Moments.  I mounted this panel with foam tape on a panel of SU Simple Marbleous DSP (retired), and then to the white card base.

I will also link up to the Color Hues challenge - Blue and Green.

 

Be sure to check out all the fun summer cards over at Seize the Birthday and join in our fun challenge.
Hope to see you in our gallery.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
 
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn

Seize the Birthday - Butterflies or Hummingbirds

 Hello friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and our host, Nancy, has chosen Butterflies or Hummingbirds for our "Topping" option.



 
I used a retired SU set Humming Along for the images and sentiment.  I had never used the hummingbird before as it is large but thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I already had the flower colored and cut out so stamped, colored and fussy cut him.  The white panel is embossed with SU Dainty Diamonds EF and matted with green.  I also sponged some lt. blue ink where the bird and flower would go.  I cut the flower stem and rearranged it so it didn't curve so much, then mounted the flower with foam tape and glued the stem and leaf down.  The bird and sentiment are also mounted with foam tape.  The sentiment is die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.

We have lots of butterfly and hummingbird cards to inspire you over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope to see you in our gallery.

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

Anniversary Card in Red, Black & White

Hello friends.  I have an anniversary card to share today.  I made this for some good friends at church.


 The flowers are from SU Boughs and Blossoms stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  After they were dry, I fussy cut them (there is no matching die) and sprayed them with Champagne Glimmer Mist spray.  The leaves are cut with a die from Forever Flourishing and then cut apart and tucked under the flowers mounted with foam tape.   The pattern paper is from SU Pattern Party and matted with a small scalloped black mat.  The white mat is embossed with an older EF (no name).  The pretty white lacy panel is cut with SU Stitched Labels Framelits die, mounted with foam tape, and the sentiment is from an older SU set.  I added 3 small rhinestones for a little bling.

I am linking to Just Us Girls Challenge - Red White & Black (even though I did add a few small green leaves.
