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!

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.

La La Land Mermaid

Do you ever feel like you are living amongst a sea of fish? Lol

With the whole Country being Shelter -in -Place, I have been spending more time in my Creative Studio. I almost had forgotten how much I LOVE it!

A girlfriend invited me to participate in a happy mail card swap with La La Land Crafts, I happily said yes and got right to work.

I chose to use the Sassy Mermaid Molli Stamp. I love Mermaids! I had purchased this in August during a class in Lodi with Irina Blount on Copic coloring.

I really enjoy coloring with my copic markers. I need to brush up on my techniques but I am happy with the end result.I created a 5.5 x 5.5 Card with layers of 5.25x 5.25 and 5 x 5 stenciled white paper. Using La La Land Crafts waves stencil and Distress ink I created the background. The Image was stamped in Memento ink and colored with the following copic colors. E00,E000,E13, R00,R20,Y23E41E21,E04,R21,R85, YG63G40G43,YG11.

Fishing Net die and Star circle La La Land Dies. Circle die, Coral Kelp & Rocks Elizabeth Crafts. Sand Dollar is Jaded Blossom Die. I added dots of copic on her fin as well as Stickles and glossy accents on the shells.

Wow it’s been almost a year!

Welcome my friends and new viewers! I am going to make every attempt to get something on here at least once a week. I am going to get real personal with you here.

I had taken a year hiatus because life got a little hectic for me. My daughter had a baby boy in June, only to have him got to be with the lord three days later. He had a rare genetic disorder called OTC. You can read more about it here on my daughters Instagram.

Baby Mason and Mom

Shortly after that there was a shooting at that resulted in a family member’s best friend being killed. To say we were all shook up is an understatement. I took time off to help my daughter and be an emotional support for the family.

With all of the tragedy that struck our family, we needed something positive to focus on. So planning a wedding was just the thing! In three months my daughter and I put together the most beautiful wedding in Big Sur. With the help of Mason’s godly presence (my grandson) everything came together.

Custom Rainbow Banner

Riley’s 4th Birthday

Welcome to my blog. I apologize for being away so long. I have been busy helping my daughter plan my granddaughter’s 4th Birthday.

When my daughter calls and asks me to make something for her I jump right to it! She planned a Rainbows and unicorn Party with a monochromatic color scheme. Finding the colors was the hardest part.

Riley is Four!
Yummy Chantilly Cake from Whole Foods Market.

For the cake, we bought one made to save time and my daughter added the fresh flowers to go with her theme. It was so delicious! I definitely recommend it.

Matching Vans shoes tied in to the theme.

I handmade the favor bag unicorns with the help of Alyssa cranking out all those little leaves. The banner was one of a kind custom that my daughter requested. It now hangs proudly on my granddaughter’s bed. I might consider custom orders for these, as they are time consuming.

What a fun day celebrating the birthday of my precious granddaughter Riley. I can hardly believe she is four! All grown up and carrying on full-blown conversations with attitude! Her little boyfriend from her class, Liam was so cute too.

I think we did a great job coordinating the decor and outfits for the day. My daughter Sarah has a creative vision like I do and always pulls together the best events. Visit her blog at

Thank you for stopping by my blog.
