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,

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.
