Set of Birthday Cards

I was a busy girl this weekend. I attended my first ever On stage Live with Stampin Up! It rejuvenated my creative mojo! I’ll talk more about that in another post.

Today I am sharing a group of cards that all have the same image in them, but they are all a little bit different. I would love your opinion on which version you prefer. The very first card was my inspiration for the others. I basically stamped the image Penny Black Your Birthday Stamp in Hero Arts Intense Black ink and colored with my Copic Markers. The very first card is the one that inspired the rest. Let me know which one is your favorite!

To make these cards, I went to my pre-cut and scored card-bases along with my pre-diecut shaped pieces. I pulled coordinating colors and a variety of pre-done sentiments to create the designs here. Finally adding a few sequins to complete the looks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Creatively yours,

Birthday Bear wishes SVG

Good Afternoon Friends! Welcome, today I have a paper pieced SVG from Little Scraps of Heaven. The most adorable bear holding a cupcake. A little known fact about me is that I used to design for an SVG company making all sorts of these cute files. I had an itch to make one after attending a creative getaway in Lake Tahoe with a few friends.

I looked on my computer at all the files I had purchased and came across this one and thought how cute it would be for a Birthday Card! Using Cricut Design Space application I uploaded my file. Going through my scrap bin of paper and cut out each piece. Carefully inking them with chalk ink before assembling him to place on the card. Now the beauty of SVG’s are you can change the size that you want it to be! I, however just imported it and cut it..:) so it is quite large and I had to make a 6 x 6 Card!

The patterned paper, tag die and sentiment are from The Stamps Of Life. The Oval Scallop Die is Elizabeth crafts. All Cardstock is from my scrap bin. While cleaning my studio I came across an old tool by Imanginece (not sure if they are still around?) a hot tool that applied my rhinestones.

I hope you enjoy this card, I had fun making it. Let me know in the comments what you might like to see here on my blog, Facebook page or instagram.

Creatively Yours,
