birthday cake!!

  • SU!- big day
  • DCWV- floral fair paper pad
  • memento 'tuxedo black' ink pad, copic friendly cardstock
  • copics- BG 15,49. Y11,13,15. RV00,10,02,21
  • wink of stella- clear
I cut a mat of patterned paper to fit my card blank and a banner shape out of a sheet of coordinating dot paper. I then stamped my focal sentiment, cut it out and coloured it using copics. I added this onto a mat of teal before layering it onto my card. I stamped the sentiment again. To add emphasis to the banner, I coloured, fussy cut and layered it onto the card using foam tape. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the cake image as an accent for my card. I stuck this down with foam tape for added dimension. The final touch was some glitter on the pink areas of my card.

the challenge I would like to enter is:

flowers for you!!

  • lawn fawn 'script for you' lawn cut (die)
  • DCWV- floral fair paper stack
  • 6x4" kraft card blank and cardstock
  • tim holtz- brushed corduroy ink pad
  • wink of stella- clear
for this card I chose 4 patterned papers, 1 floral and 3 coordinating dots. I trimmed the floral to fit the card blank, leaving a small border around the edge. I cut the blue paper to 3.5cmx11.5cm, the orange paper at 3.5cmx9.5cm and the final pink layer at 4cmx8cm. I inked around the edges of the layers and glued them down to follow the sketch. I die cut the 'for you' three times and layered them on top of each other for dimension, I glued this onto the card. To finish the card,I added some sparkle to the words to make them stand out.

  • SU!- whisper white ink pad, distress dots background stamp, bold butterfly framelits & butterflies thinlits
  • paper smooches 'friend word' wise die
  • 6x4" kraft card blank
  • coral and yellow cardstock
  • white funky foam
  • yellow & white bakers twine
  • neat & tangle clear sequins
I stamped my card blank to create a white dotty background. I added some yellow twine towards the bottom of my card. To do this, I wrapped it around the card blank twice and tied a knot. I die cut the word friend twice, once in some coral cardstock and once in funky foam, then glued both of these layers together to create dimension. I glued this sentiment onto the card blank underlined by the twine. I die cut the solid butterfly in a yellow cardstock, then used a detail butterfly die (in the same size) to cut the coral layer. I glued these together just in the centre (leaving the wings loose to add more dimension), then added them to my card design. The final touch was a few sequins as sparkly accents.
 I have finally found a liquid glue that is brilliant to use!! I used the tombow mono multi liquid glue to stick down everything on this card.
