A Little Birdie Birthday Card

This is an oldie but goodie. I love the A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set. I made this using some scraps I had on my desk and it came together nicely.  The card base is Crumb Cake, layered with Chocolate Chip card stock that I embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.

The stamp was colored in with Copic markers and I attached the party hat with a glue dot. The background card stock is Gumball Green.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1″ Circle Punch matted with Gumball Green. The strip of paper at the bottom is from Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, notched into a V at the end.

Out on a limb Halloween Card

I made this card for a Halloween swap. It features the Out on a Limb stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The card base Basic Black, layered with Pumpkin Pie card stock textured with the Stripes Textured Embossing Folder for the Big Shot.

Next, I opted to stamp the hanging spiders (also from Out on a Limb) in Black ink over top of First Edition Specialty DSP. To give it more texture, I distressed the edges with the Distressing tool in the Cutter Kit.

The black flocked paper is from Mocha Morning Specialty DSP. The package contains, among other designs, 2 styles of flocked paper. It’s really pretty and elegant. This is cut to 3″ x 4″.

I stamped the branch on Very Vanilla card stock with Early Espresso ink. Then, using the stampamajig, I stamped the witch in Black craft ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored in the witch and the moon with Copic Markers, then added dazzling diamonds glitter to the moon with 2-way glue pen. The “Boo” sentiment is from Tiny Tags.

Using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, I punched out the stamped image and distressed the edges with the Cutter Kit, then sponged So Saffron ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. To give a little more sparkle, I sprayed the card stock with shimmer spray (made with shimmer paint and 70% rubbing alcohol).

I added another strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock embossed with the Stripes Textured Embossing Folder across the front behind the focal image to finish off the card.

 

Happy Birthday to a Classic {Masculine Card}

Time for another masculine card. The guys I know like cars, so I knew I would get a lot of mileage out of this stamp set, To a Classic.

I stamped the Baja Breeze card base with the little speedometer from To a Classic in Baja Breeze and Basic Gray ink. The main image was stamped in Memento Gray ink, on Whisper White card stock. Then, I stamped the image again on scrap White card stock and colored the car with Copic Markers. I cut out the car and attached it to the main image with stampin dimensionals.

The white was matted on a piece of Basic Gray card stock. The gray patterned paper is from Urban Oasis DSP (retired). I attached the stamped layer to the base with stampin dimensionals. The white brads are 5/8″ Basic Brads.
