Good Morning! I hope your getting ready to have a wonderful day. I thought I would share with you a fun birthday card I made recently. This card features all sorts of fun and the Oh So Eclectic Suite!
I inked up the wonderful Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set for the lone flower. Using a soft background to be a sweet way to layer the ‘Happy Birthday‘ sentiment. Pool Party Classic Ink Pad was the perfect way to evenly ink up the top of this flower, then using the Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up the stem. Layering the ‘Happy Birthday‘ sentiment from Guy Greetings Stamp Set in Night of Navy makes that sentiment the focal point on this card!
The Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies added the perfect touch of detailing. Then the Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon brought it all together. I am a sucker for adding bows on projects, but I think it helps finish off a lot of creations. Adding a bit of Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper for the card base was easy and so much fun! This jewel piece of DSP is just so much fun and seems to go with the flower and this touch of ribbon! I mounted this piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper on some Emerald Envy cardstock, giving the entire card a fun background.
I hope you enjoyed what I had to share with you today. Be sure to stop by again soon!
Check out this fun Tic-Tac-Toe creation! Yes, I took another shot at the fabulous new Tic Tac Toe Challenge #009 this weekend. I love the versatility that challenges offer and how they make you step out of your comfortable spaces too. It was also a great trigger to make me use these fun stencils again!Here the current Challenge Board that I worked with, this time I worked with the bottom row:
One Layer Cards are so much fun, but sometimes I just think they need a bit more pop. For today’s card I decided to use one of our wonderful new stencils – Pattern Party Decorative Masks! Plus I added in some scoring to be the dividing line in the card.
Inking up the fabulous Climbing Orchid stamp set was so much fun! The Berry Burst ink added the pop I was looking for with the Orchid layering and a bit of Garden Green for the leaves. I thought they would look great together in these colors and with this stencil inked up in Blushing Bride!
I hope your enjoyed checking out my card for today, and take the time to check out the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Have a great day everyone!
You might have guessed it – I have another birthday card to share today. This one features the Celebration Time Bundle, which to be honest I hadn’t noticed when first checking out the Catalog and making my list.
One of the biggest perks to this bundle is the fabulous Celebration Thinlits Dies! These dies come with tags and all the layering aspects to really create a fun tag for any celebration, especially birthdays. I decided to feature one of these tags front and center on my card.
For the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge I selected the diagonal that goes from the bottom left to the top right – Birthday, Die-cast, Ribbon. I picked the Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, and Dapper Demin color combination since this card was for my brother and these colors pop so nicely together. Plus I used the lovely Lemon Like Twist Ombre Ribbon for my finishing touch.
The background on both the Dapper Demin layer and Pool Party card base are stamped with images from the Celebration Time stamp set. The banners are stamped tone on tone for the center strip in both Dapper Denim. Plus the little touches of ‘Celebrate‘ are featured in Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist for the background.
If the Celebration Time Bundle is on your wish list, snatch it up now and earn a $5 Reward to spend next month! That’s right, Bonus Days are back and you don’t want to miss out!
I hope you enjoy my creation for this challenge. I can’t wait to play along with more challenges from this wonderful Design Team soon! Thank you for visiting me today! Have a wonderful evening!
