Another Birthday Card

I warned you, we have a lot of November Birthday's to cover!  This one is for a Granddaughter back East.

 I used Melon Mambo for the card base and the next layer is Pink Pirouette ran through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I used the wide Black/White Striped Rbbon and stamped the Birthday circle from Happiest Birthday Wishes Stamp Set on Whisper White CS/Pink Pirouette CS/Melon Mambo CS and layered them after punching with Circle Punches and Scallop Circle Punch.  The bird from Language of Friendship Stamp Set is stamped onto Black CS with White Ink and I used clear embossing powder and punched it out with the Bird Builder Punch.  The flower is from the Every Moment Stamp Set, colored with Color Pencils and used the Blender Pen and cut it out.  The inside stamp of the 3 birds is from the Clearly for You Stamp Set.  Hope it gets there by Friday!

Birthday Card

Here's the card I made for one of my dear friends who reired a few years ago. 

She is a dear sweet friend and I hope she has a wonderful Birthday this year.  I used Pink Pirouette CS for the Card Base.  The happy birthday cupcake is from the Easy Events Stamp Set and the little birthday cake tag stamp is from Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess Stamp Set.  I sponged with Poppy Parade Ink and the Scallop Circle and the Tag background are punched from the Poppy Parade CS.  I used the  Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder for the background piece and scalloped the bottom edge and sponged with Poppy Parade Ink.  The ribbon is Blushing Bride Stitched Poly Ribbon. 

Happy Stamping and Big Hugs ~ Julia

Kleenex Box Cover

I created this Kleenex Box cover to give to my Boss' wife.  She's such a sweetie and came by the office on Wednesday and said hello.  I thought she would like it for the Thanksgiving Season.  If she does, maybe I'll make her another one for the Christmas Season???  I used the Always Thankful Stamp Set for the saying and Wheelbarrow stamped on Very Vanilla CS.  The base is Pear Pizzazz CS.  The next layer is Spice Cake DSP.  The little saying is stamped with Soft Suede on Very Vanilla CS.  I punched it out with the Small Scallop Oval Punch and layered it onto a piece of Soft Suede CS punched with the Curly Label Punch.  The Wheelbarrow is colored with various Stampin' Write Markers and Wonder Color Crayons and I used my Blender Pen to soften the look.  It is layered onto Pool Party CS and then a layer of Pear Pizzazz CS.  I added 3 Basic Pearls above the saying.  Hope she likes it!

November Birthday's

We have a lot of November Birthday's in our family.  This is the first of several cards for them you will see this month.

I used Pool Party CS for the base of the card.  Spice Cake DSP for the bottom and strips on the inside.  The Happy Birthday is from Perfectly Penned Stamp Set using More Mustard Ink Pad and the flower is from Button Buddies Stamp Set stamped with Pool Party Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. My Twin Judy made a card similar to this for my Birthday this year and I loved it.  (Thanks for letting me copy you Judy!)  The center of the flower I used one of the In Color Printed Designer Brads ~ love those.  I used the Scallop Edge Punch on the inside strips.  Also across the middle of the front of the card is Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon.  Hope Wendy likes her card and has a wonderful Birthday.  We don't get to see her much, she lives in New Hamshire.

Baby Card

I made a card for a co-worker that just got his first Granddaughter.  He has been so excited and let the spoiling begin!

I saw a card similar to this created by Nancy Dawson of Paper Dreams & Creative Wishes, she did her's in blues and greens, my card is for a baby girl.  I only did three drawers, she has 4.  I used Pink Pirouette CS for the base, some of the new Printed Designer Brads for the drawer pulls, some Chocolate Chip ink for sponging around the edges.  The little baby things were stamped with the Baby Bundle Stamp Set and colored with the Blender Pen using Water Color Wonder Crayons.
