Chris' Birthday Card

Friday, 9/28 was my sister's 70th Birthday!  Woo hoo....happy birthday sis'!  Here's the card I created for her special day~

I re-created a card we did at our Luv2Stamp Group's last meeting.  That one was 4x4, this one is regular card size 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  I used Melon Mambo CS for the base, First Edition Special DSP for the first layer, the banner is cut from Early Espresso Core'dinations CS run through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and sanded.  The ribbon is Raspberry Ripple Satin Stitched.  The Happy Birthday is from the You're Amazing Stamp Set cut with Apothecary Accents Framelits.  The little tickets are in the You're Amazing Stamp Set also and cut out using the Ticket Duo Builder Punch.  The little safety pin is part of the Vintage Trinkets pack.   I colored Rhinestones with a Sharpie.  The inside "happy 70th is from the Bring on The Cake Stamp set and run through the Big Shot with one of the Window Frame Collection Framelits.

Band Thank-You

My Nephew plays in the band at Calaveras High School.  They recently did a fund-raising dinner and my Sis asked me to make the Thank You cards for all the wonderful people who donated and helped make it a great success~

The logo she sent me and I used Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight CS on a Whisper White CS base.  I ran the Daffodil Delight through the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Thanks was from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set and punched with the Large Oval Punch and layered onto Cajun Craze punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  I used the Moving Forward Stamp Set for the frog and his little motion jump line all in Gumball Green Ink!

Hope they were able to use the cards and the recipients liked getting them!

Lisa's Graduation

One of my Daughter's BFF's graduated from college this last week-end and we were invited to her grad party on Friday night!  This is the card I made for her:

I used the flower from Everything Eleanor Stamp Set and the medal I made using the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set.  I used Riding Hood Red Ink for the Flowers and congrats GRAD and congrats tails!  I used Red Glimmer Paper as the frame and Black CS around that all mounted on Whisper White CS.  The inside was computer generated.  I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for some added glam!

Paula's Birthday Card

My daughter had another birthday ~ she's almost catching up to me!  LOL!

I used Gloria Plunkett's trade card from one of our Luv2Stamp Group Meetings.  I changed mine up to use Daffodil Delight for the background paper and the Happy Birthday from the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set.  The flowers and background are from the Creative Elements Stamp Set.  These cards come out so cute and are so easy to do.  My daughter is a Pittsburgh Steeler FAN so had to do a "black and yellow" card for her!  Here's the inside~

I used the Framelits - Labels Collection to cut the inside paper.  The writing was done on my computer. It was a VERY busy day and we had a great time helping her celebrate!

Aurora's B-Day Card

My walkin' partner at work had a birthday on Labor Day.  This is the card I gave her today:

She loves butterflies so I used the new butterfly punch.  The Papillion Portpourri for the stamped images onto in-color CS.  The circles were cut from Polka Dot Parade DSP.  The Happy Birthday was stamped in Gumball Green using the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set.  The card base is Gumball Green CS and then a layer of Basic Black CS.  She loved her card!

I got the inspiration from luv-2-stamp groups'  Barbara Hebert at Barbara Hebert Designs.
