Spring Daisies Happy Birthday

This is a Suzy Plantamura watercolor card that was part of the Simon Says Stamps March Card Kit. I colored it with ZIG Real Brush Markers and die cut it with a stitched rectangle. A sentiment was stamped in the upper right and yellow sequins were scattered around the image and the card was done. Quick and easy!

Red Geometric Border Yah! It’s Your Birthday

This is the second card I made using the Fiskars Geo Border stamp. This time I decided to make it a bright red. The rectangle was sized down using a stitched rectangle. I didn’t like the unfinished edge and so I pulled out a scrap of red cardstock and created a thin strip and adhered it over the flat edge of the border.

For the focal image I pulled out My Favorite Things Party Balloons and stamped three different stamps, two with sentiments and one with diagonal stripes. They were added to the front of the rectangle with foam tape for dimension.

The sentiment if from Papertrey Ink’s Stylish Sentiments: Birthday.

I pulled out a red pen to add the strings to the balloons and the card was done.

Relax – Enjoy – Celebrate

This cute image from Lili of the Valley reminds me of what my husband likes to do to unwind. He sits in his comfortable chair and watches some old westerns or SVU reruns.

I printed the image using a laser printer then colored it with Copic Markers. It was then cut with a Silhouette Cameo PIXScan Mat.

For the scene I pulled out a brick pattern embossing folder for the wall and then used some wood paper for the floor, gluing it to the bottom of the brick panel. I used a stitched rectangle to die cut the panel. I glued the image to the panel.

I knew what I wanted to have for a sentiment so I pulled out several stamp sets to create it. Stamped them on some bright blue paper with VersaMark Ink and embossed them with white embossing powder and then cut them into rectangles.

Net Frame Happy Birthday Flowers

I’ve found that dies from China are often smaller than those available in the United States and so I don’t typically buy them anymore, but this is one that I really like.
