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.

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 http://www.gypsychildofthewild.com

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

I am in party planning mode with my daughter, for my granddaughter’s birthday and her upcoming baby shower. So naturally, I went to items for parties!

I love the cupcake liner die! I have found two ways to use it so far. The first is the traditional way to hold cupcakes, this really dresses up the cupcakes. The second way is to make little treat cups or favor cups. Jelly beans for easter, nail polish, clippers file for a mini mani kit, coffee pods or tea bags.

I used Solid FSJ Cardstock and the Create and Bloom printed papers to create my liners. Cut multiple colors to add layers as I did for the St. Pat’s Day cupcake. For the Easter Bunny liner, I turned it into a basket using a strip of the same patterned paper with the reverse print. The Easter Greetings and the Eggs were stamped with clear pigment ink and embossed with white powder. Happy Easter stamped in Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink and the bunny is stamped twice, first in Pumpkin Bread True COlor Fusion Ink and then in Hazelnut Fusion Ink. Die Cut using coordinating dies.

I create a circle bottom for the cupcake wrappers using the FSJ Circle dies (a basic die set everyone should own) This also is true when making the wrappers into treat or gift holders.

Don’t forget to comment below and on each team members blog to be in the running for one of 5 $25 gift certificates to Spellbinders-FSJ. Winners should be drawn by Friday, March 22nd. Thank you for visiting my blog and Good Luck.
