Stampin’ Up! Honeycomb Happy Birthday

March 22, 2016

I finally got the chance to use some of the honeycomb embellishments on today’s card.  They are so cute and add a punch to your card.  I used the sketch challenge from Pals Paper Arts 292 and the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from the Paper Craft Crew #186.  For the Tic-Tac-Toe I chose : Birthday, Die Cut or Punch and Silver Thread.  You can never have too many birthday cards, right?

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by today.

Stampin’ Up! Mojo Monday 439 Make A Wish

March 19, 2016

Happy Saturday!  I have my card class today…..so excited…so much fun.  If I was a really good instructor I would share pictures of the class…..we’ll see.  I always seem to forget.

Mojo Monday’s sketch and the fact that I needed another birthday card was the inspiration for my card.  The Party Wishes bundle is Awesome!  So much flexibility 🙂  I used the thumping technique on the cake base.  I think it gives it a marble look.

Stampin’ Up! CCMC397 Happy Birthday

March 16, 2016

One of our good friends has a birthday today.  He is a golf professional who likes to enjoy the outdoors and fish whenever he can.  So Kal, this card is for you!  Happy Birthday!

The sketch from Create with Connie and Mary #397 is the basis for today’s card.  I used the aqua painter for coloring the fish and sponged the background.  I added some Crystal Effects for the bear’s eyes and nose and some Wink of Stella for the fish.

I hope you enjoy today’s card.  Have a great day and thank you for stopping by today.

Stampin’ Up! PP284 Happy Birthday

March 3, 2016

I haven’t made a masculine card in a while and when I saw the sketch for the Paper Players I knew it was time to pull out the Going Global stamp.  I used clear embossing powder to heat emboss the map, compass and sentiment.  I hope you like today’s card as much as I do :-).

Thank you for stopping by today!

Stampin’ Up! They Say It’s Your Birthday

March 2, 2016

I used the color challenge from Can You Case It #109 and the challenge from Case this Sketch #161 for today’s card.  I used a balloon embossing folder I had in my desk and colored the balloons with ink refills and Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush…. I know I know…. using that tool way too much.  All I can say is if it isn’t broken, no need to fix :-).

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by today!
