I find myself in need of a number of birthday cards this weekend.
I used the Stampin Up set ‘Bubble Over’ and ‘Freestyle Stripes’ by The Ton. I matched the inks to the card stock in Stampin Up Gray Granite, Blueberry Bushel and Lemon Lime Twist.
Second is a card for my mum, I got a bit snarky and want her to know that despite her cancer diagnosis with her attitude she’ll live to be an old woman! I was inspired by the current challenge over at Shopping Our Stash #366 , which was to use a silhouette on a card.
I used a stamp set from Unity Stamps called ‘No Regrets’ which I stamped in basic black on some white card stock, mounted on a couple of pieces of misc. DSP added the sentiment and the card was done. This lady is just as sassy as my mum.
Thirdly is a card for my longest known friend; we meet in kindergarten and are still friends some 48 years later! (does that give our age away?) I thought the challenge at AAA Cards #121 – Friendship was a pretty good one to inspire my card theme and the Global Design Project #150 sketch inspired my layout.
I used a stamp set I got with a crafting magazine by Debbi Moore Designs called ‘Hello Gorgeous’. I stamped and coloured the perfume bottles with my Stampin Blends in Mint Macaron, Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate. I added a bit of misc. DSP for some background effect and the card was done.
Well, that’s it for today; thanks for looking and have a great day.
