Make a Wish Birthday Cards

make a wish 1

When I saw this make a wish stamp, I had to have it. Funny enough, it’s from the Make a Wish stamp set in the Occasions Mini 2013 catalog. I like it so much I made 2 cards with it! Actually 3 cards but I gave one away already before taking a picture!

First up is the card pictured above. I used markers to color different parts of the stamp different colors. I stamped it on Whisper White card stock and punched out the circle with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.

The base is tempting turquoise, layered with chevron print paper from Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper. The strip of paper is Raspberry Ripple.

For the Basic Gray/Basic Black 1 1/4″ Two-Tone Grosgrain Ribbon medallion, I used the Jumbo Sticky Rounds. Apply the Sticky Round to the back of the Whisper White circle, then take your ribbon and stick the end onto the back of the card stock. Go around the circle, pleating and folding the ribbon as you go. I added a stampin dimensional to the center and a smaller 1” Circle on the back for added stability. Then adhere the medallion to the card base.

The next card I made is a smaller 3″x3″ square card. I used Basic Black card stock for the base, and another piece of the Daffodil delight chevron DSP from Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper.

This time, I used White Craft ink stamped on Basic Black card stock. Then, I paper pierced around the edge and used a white gel pen to connect the dots and give it a “stitched look”. The black card stock is layered on a piece of Whisper white with stampin dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I added a red button threaded with Bakers Twine.

Calypso Coral Mojo Monday Sketch

Today’s card was based on this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Mojo195. The base is new In Color Calypso Coral (available July 1st). I layered it with Chocolate Chip card stock and one of the patterns in the new Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Across the front, I used three pieces of Chocolate Chip Scallop Dot Ribbon. In the center, the doily is from the Flirtatious Specialty DSP as well. There are two die cut sheets of doilies in the package of DSP. The colors are Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo.

To coordinate with the colors of my card, I used one of the Pumpkin Pie doilies, but I turned it over and brayered the back with Calypso Coral ink (the backs are white). Behind that, I layered a chocolate chip circle punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. On top, I stamped “thanks” from Thank You Kindly with Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. The stamped circle is made with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I outlined the circle with dots using the White Gel Pen.

Birthday Flowers & Dots

I made this card for my husband’s grandmother. He suggested mailing her a card but I told him that was impossible because this one was BIG and bulky!

The card base is chocolate chip, layered with Chocolate Chip DSP in this polka dot pattern. As for the flowers, I made them by punching different colored card stock  with the Scallop Circle Punch. Then, I sprayed the scallop circles with water, crumpled them up, and let them dry. I added a white Basic Brad in the center of each flower, topped with a Rhinestone Jewel.

In the background, I used Apricot Appeal card stock, layered with Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Using the sponge dauber, I added Certainly Celery ink to the raised portions.

The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Pretty in Pink card stock, then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. To give it more interest, I sponged the edges with Pretty in Pink ink and added white dots with the White Gel Pen.
