Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone.

I just got home last week from a well deserved holiday and straight back to work I went. I didn’t want to leave the sun behind and head back to the real world but I had to.

Well this week was my friend’s birthday and every year we go camping to celebrate the occasion. Camp fire, food, drinks, stars and of course s’mores.

I bought her a balloon and whipped up this simple birthday card for her.

I used  Recollections cardstock and my Indentz Vine 1 folder to emboss the background, then stamped one of the butterflies from Inkadinkado Butterflies stamp set in StazOn Teal Blue ink. I decided to cut out the butterfly with the Spellbinders Peony Die set and added some popdots.

The sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Sibling Love stamp set, cut out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and attached using Divine Twine in Aqua.

The inside sentiment comes from Studio G, I think.

So here are some Butterfly Birthday Wishes!!!!

To another great year of new adventures and treasured memories.

Camping under the stars

Oh what fun….. at the end of the week my friend’s daughter is going to Girl Guide Camp. I can remember going to girl guide camp as a young girl and having the time of my life.

So to wish her the time of her life with lots of great adventures, making new friends and earning badges I made her this card.

Isn’t it cute? I used Recollections and Bazzill Cardstock for the base and the background I cut from a 12×12. The fire is a sticker embellishment from Michaels.

This is part of the Bo Bunny Camp A Lotpaper and embellishment collection. I matted a cardstock sticker  from the Fireside Fun Sticker Sheet…… I love, love, love this collection. I love the little sign by the tents that says  “Welcome Campers”.

I made a 3″ girl guide from the Paper Doll Dress Up and the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridges. To make the guide tie I used the smallest maple leaf stamp I had and used Memento Bahama Blue ink.

And if you’re like me …. you can’t draw, so I used Peachy Keen’s PK490 Everyday Character Faces Assortment. I gave her some pink cheeks and used my Sukura White Gelly Roll pen for the eyes.

I used DecoArt Snow Writer to make the marshmallows and then used chalk to make them “roasted”… heeeheee.

I used the Spellbinders Grommet Tags and the Peony Dies, stamped and colored with asstorted Tombows and Copics. The sentiment is Happy Camper from Imaginisce.

I added a couple of buttons… the tree and the blue tent as “grommets”.

Well I sure hope she has the best time at camp and brings home lots of great memories. I know I did.

I will be Linking Up to Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday... you should head on over and check out what everybody has been up to.

I will also be linking up to the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge – Peachy Challenge #23 – Anything goes. Stop by and check out all the great entries.

Sweet Birthday Wishes !!!!

Today I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made for one of the ladies that I work with.

Yesterday was her birthday and we always celebrate by giving each other a card and of course ………. any excuse to eat cake.

I started by running a piece of teal cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Seeing Spots folder and attached it to the pink card base. I just love this pink and teal cardstock from Recollections.

The main image is a stamp from Great Impressions Stamps called Dessert Piled High…. yummmmm

I colored the image in with my Copics and a few Bic Markers. For an extra little bling I used Glossy Accents for the cherry on top, as well as some Stickles in Crystal.

I put two thin layers behind the main image and then used some popdots for dimension but only for the top half.

“Sweet birthday wishes” comes from the Say It Sweet stamp set from Pink By Design. I have a sweet tooth and this stamp set has a lot of great sentiments for anyone who does.

I used the Cuttlebug and the Spellbinders Grommet Tag Die set to cut out and then stamp the sentiment on. I then attached it with some Flower Brads from Recollections that I picked up from Michaels.

I think that everyone should take this advice on their birthday too. I know I do…heeeheee

I used two different stamp sets for the inside of the card. I used the Pink by Design Simply Everything stamp set for the “It’s Your Birthday !” and the Inkadinkado Eat Cupcakes set.

I will be posting some more birthday cards soon… May is such a busy birthday month.

3 Cheers for Green Beers!!!!

Only 2 more days til St Patrick’s Day.

Here is another card that I made for this festive green beer drinking day. I must say that I have never drank green beer but I guess there is always a first time for everything.

I used the Grommet Tags from Spellbinders in my Cuttlebug to cut out and stamp the sentiment on. 

The sentiment is from Pink by Design’s Luck O’ the Irish stamp set. This set is full of lots of great sayings.

I then ran some green ribbon through the holes to attach it to the card.

The image stamp is one that I got for …..50 cents at a local Department store. I colored it in with my Bic markers and added some popdots.

The inside sentiment is also from Pink by Design’s Luck O’ the Irish stamp set.

I punched a couple of Shamrocks with my Fiskars Pop-up Punch and added some popdots.

3 Cheers for Green Beers!!!!!
