Happy Everything Aimee Birthday Card

My daughter Aimee turned 42 on May 8.  I don’t know how that could have happened so quickly, my brain tells me I’m not a day over 30.  Her favorite colors are teal/aqua and green.  I had just used the image from C. C. Designs Dove Art Studios Himalayan Poppy for my mother and thought it would make a beautiful birthday card for Aimee.

The sentiment was cut from gold mirror cardstock using the Penny Black Awesome Die.  To add dimension the die was cut again from Sticky Backed Fun Foam.  cut the foam with the sticky side up and find it works really well to add dimension to die cut words. mirror cardstock.  Penny Black Awesome Die was also cut from the same mirror cardstock and again from Darice I

Penny Black Jubilant Time to Celebrate

Penny Black’s Jubilant makes an absolutely beautiful watercolor card. This card was made for one of our young women leaders whose favorite color is teal blue.  I love the way this card turned out.

I used Canson XL 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper for this card.  I placed the Jubilant rubber stamp in the MISTI since I wanted to stamp the image multiple times to get the look that I was going for.  I colored the image with the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers (colors used are listed below) and then generously spritzed it with water before stamping on the watercolor paper.  I did this a couple of times, drying the image with the Marvy Embossing Tool between each stamping.  For the last stamping I colored the image and did not add any additional water.

When I sprayed the stamp to clean it there was a lot of leftover ink and so I decided to do a second generation stamped image and it too turned out beautiful, a little softer in color, but it still made a lovely card.

Once the images were dry I ran them through the Sizzix Big Shot with the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  For the original image a rectangle of teal blue cardstock 1/8″ larger than the focal image was adhered to the back using Sookwang Scor-Tape.  To the second generation image Paper Accents Gold Mirror cardstock was added to the back.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Fancy Sayings and was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  (You want to make sure that the image is completely dry before adding embossing powder or you will end up with a mess on your card.)

Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added to the back of the focal image rectangles.  A2 Top Folding Cardbases were made from Gina K. Designs 120# White and Ivory Cardstock and the focal images were adhered using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  For added interest Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold Sequins were scattered on the card front and adhered with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and the cards were done.

Have a Wonderful Sweet Birthday

This card is for Aubrey who is an awesome big sister and a lovely pianist. Her favorite color is purple, but to add a little more interest I added some pink accents.  Wouldn’t it be fun to have a chocolate birthday cupcake half as big as you are.  Might have a stomach ache afterwards, but it would be a delicious treat.

This image is from Penny Black’s Sweet Thing and was stamped on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The image was colored with Copic Markers (colors listed below) and then die cut using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.  I have been an a kit lately of using patterned paper as a background to the focal image and decided to use Doodlebug 2523 Lilac Daisy-Stripe Cardstock.  It was cut with the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle.  Matching purple cardstock was found from my stash and rectangles for both the focal image and the background panel were cut 1/8″ larger and adhered to the back of each rectangle with Tombo Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.  Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was also added to the back of the focal image to add dimension.

The sentiment from Penny Black Sprinkles and Smiles was stamped below the focal image with Altenew Lavender Ink.  An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The patterned paper rectangle and the focal image rectangle were adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Gold Stickles was added to the center of the cupcake flower and as the confetti on the cupcake and the card was done.

Bring on the Happy Birthday Card

How can you not fall in love with the cute images from Whimsy Stamps. This card uses Wee Suzi and was made for Charlyn, whose favorite color is lavender.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.  It was colored with Copic Markers (colors listed below) and then die cut with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  A rectangle 1/8″ larger was cut out of purple cardstock I had in my stash.  Both were adhered together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was adhered to the back of the panel.

The sentiment from Penny Black Sprinkles and Smiles was stamped below the focal image with Altenew Lavender Ink.  I wanted to highlight the lavender color so I pulled out Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid 6 x 6 Petite Paper Pack and die cut a rectangle of the diagonal lavender plaid cardstock with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes. Purple cardstock 1/8″ larger was adhered to the back of the plaid paper and then it was adhered to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue. The same glue was added to the fun foam on the back of the focal image and then it was adhered to the plaid card front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue, and the card was done.

Have a Sweet Day Birthday Card

This personalized birthday card was created for our newest young woman, Aubrey.  Her favorite color is pink and anything that sparkles, according to her mom and big sister.

The image is from Penny Black’s Wish Big and was stamped on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Everything was colored with different hues of pink (colors listed below).  Copic YR23 was used as a base for anything gold.  Once the coloring was complete the focal image was die cut using Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.  To add more sparkle and bling Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger and both were adhered together with Sookwang Scor-Tape.

To accent the pink and gold theme a larger rectangle was cut with the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle from Dream Street Paper LLC Baylee’s Garden Rain Drops paper, which has gold foil at the center of the cirles.  A rectangle 1/8″ larger was cut from mirror cardstock and both were adhered together with Scor-Tape.  This panel was adhered to a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

The focal image rectangle was placed on the card front to determine where to stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things Delicious Birthday with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The focal image was then adhered to the card front by adding Tombo Mono Multi Glue to the fun foam.  Gold Stickles was added to the crown, ribbons, dots on the present, and the star confetti and the card was done.
