Happy Birthday Card with CC Designs

I have been building up my stash of birthday cards and my project today features one of my favorite stamp sets from CC Designs called Birthday Critters with the Birthday Critters Die Set.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • stamp the images on some Neenah Classic Crest Solar white card stock.
  • color images in with alcohol markers (or any medium of your choice).
  • die-cut the image using the coordinating die.
  • die-cut some birthday-themed pattern paper and adhere on some A2-size, top-folding notecard.
  • die-cut the Happy Birthday Circle Frame die on some Neenah 100 lb. card stock.
  • use the circle shaker pouch and add some confetti as the shaker element. Adhere and close the shaker on the card.
  • adhere the Happy Birthday die-cut on the circle shaker using liquid glue.
  • finish the card design by adhering the focal image on the card.

I love the simplicity of this fun shaker card. I hope you like this project today and got inspired. Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s).

Happy YOU Day with Crafty Meraki

I am so excited to be on the Crafty Meraki blog and over here, sharing this cute Birthday Card, showcasing the Celebrate You Stamp Set along with the Party Time 6×6 Stencil and Peridot Opal Gems.

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Place the Celebrate You stamp image inside the MISTI Stamping Tool and stamp a few times on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2.
  • Use Copic Multi-liner to draw the branch and a few leaves.  [Designer tip: I drew the branch and leaves so that the image did not look like it was floating in the air!]
  • Color the images in with Spectrum Noir TriBlend Brush Markers.
  • Stamp the same image on some masking paper and fussy-cut with precision snips. Adhere on the card panel.
  • Prepare the Party Time 6×6 Stencil by spraying some Pixie Spray and let it dry for about half an hour.
  • Place the stencil on top of the colored panel.
  • Use some blending brushes and a few dye inks to ink-up the panel.  I listed all the inks on the supply list below for ease of reference.
  • Use the same blending brushes and the same dye inks to add up more color to the front panel.  [Designer tip: make sure you are applying the colors gently so that you would have a smooth blend of colors.]
  • Use some tweezers to remove the masking paper.
  • Stamp the sentiment on some black card stock with Versamark ink.  Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set using the heating tool.
  • Finish the card design by adhering some Peridot Opal Gems to the card and use some white gel pen to add some stars and dots for added interest and texture.

I hope you like the card today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked for your convenience.  Thanks for stopping by today, and happy stamping!

Hello everyone! I have been creating a lot of birthday cards lately and so I wanted to try this this technique inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s YT video tutorial, showcasing the Birthday Essentials die set with the Happy Birthday sentiment die with shadow by Kat Scrappiness

Here’s how I made the card:

  • Die-cut the candles from the Birthday Essentials die set on different color of card stock.

  • Adhere the candles on the pop-up panel with liquid glue.
  • Use white gel pen to draw some starbursts to the candle’s flame for added texture.
  • Die-cut the sentiment using the Happy Birthday Sentiment Die with Shadow on some white and black card stock.  Adhere this on the card with liquid glue.

BIRTHDAY ESSENTIALS RELEASE WITH KAT SCRAPPINESS

Hello Everyone! I am super excited to introduce the Birthday Essentials Release by Kat Scrappiness and I have two cards to share with you today!

For my first card, I am showcasing the Layered Balloon Coverplate Die with the Make a Wish With Shadow Die.

I started by die-cutting the cover panel using the Layered Balloon Coverplate Die on some Neenah solar white card stock. I also die cut the balloons included in the Layered Balloon Coverplate Die set on some Bristol smooth white card stock and used some distress oxide ink to ink-blend the die-cuts.

I adhere the balloons with liquid glue and created a shaker well, by adding acetate sheet to the back of the die-cut panel and foam adhesive. I used the rainbow sprinkles as my shaker element and adhered the panel on some A2 size notecard.

I die-cut the words Make A Wish on some white and black card stock and added to the focal panel with liquid glue. I finished my card design by adding some stars and dots to the balloons using white gel pen.

My second card features the Birthday Essentials Die Set with the Happy Day Stamp Set, Zig Zag Rectangle Die and Distressed Edge Rectangle Dies.

I die-cut the Zig Zag Rectangle Die on some Neenah solar white card stock and used the Distressed Edge Rectangle Dies to cut the window. I also used the same Distressed Edge Rectangle Die to cut the notecard so that when I adhered both panels together, it would create the window. I added some acetate sheet on the back.

The candles were die-cut in different colors or card stock and adhered together with liquid glue. I finished the design by adding the sentiment and yellow stars for interest and texture.

I hope you like my cards today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by!

Pastry Pal Cuties with LDRS Creative

Hello and welcome back!  I am so excited to also be featured on the LDRS Creative Blog today, sharing TWO adorable cards, showcasing the Pastry Pals Craft Kit along with the Candy Counter 6×6 Double-Side Paper Pack.    I don’t know about you but when I saw this kit, I knew I just had to have it!  The images are too cute and you can use this kit all-year round.  The possibilities are endless! 

I started by stamping the images from the Pastry Pals Stamp Set on some Neenah solar white card stock with Raven Hybrid Ink.  I used my Stampendable Stamping Tool to get a nice impression of the images.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and die-cut them all out using the coordinating dies. Next, I die-cut the slimline panels a few times using the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set included in the kit with white and dark pink card stock.  I also used my pastel watercolor set to flick some colors on the card panel for added texture and interest. 

I adhered the pink frame on the white card panel and foam-mounted both on a slimline card base for added dimension.  I then lined up the images and evenly spaced them while adhering one-by-one with liquid glue.  I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Raven Hybrid Ink and coloring the letters using the same color of markers that I used for the cupcakes.  I also used some gold gel pen for the sprinkles! 

 Since I colored a lot of images from the Pastry Pals Craft Kit, I decided to make another card.   

 I used the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set from the kit to die-cut the decorative edges using some Neenah solar white card stock and the Candy Counter 6×6 Paper Pack.  I also used the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set to die-cut the patterned paper and adhered on an A2-size notecard. 

 Next, I foam-mounted the focal panel for added dimension and adhered the images with liquid glue.  I finished the design by stamping the sentiment with some Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the letters with alcohol markers.   

 Aren’t these images adorable?!  I am pretty sure this Pastry Pals Craft Kit will sell out soon just like the rest of the other kits so grab them now before they are gone! I hope you like my cards today and got inspired!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!
