Birthday Cards

I’m in desperate need of some birthday cards as we have a stack of birthdays coming up for Miss K and her school friends.

As per usual, I went to my card challenge list for inspiration. This first card was inspired by The Card Concept, Just Add Ink and Just Us Girls.

I loved the colour scheme in the Card Concept inspiration photo and the background panels in Just Add Ink, so when I stamped my card I focussed on yellows and green and then cut my panel up and separated them to mimic the grout and added the birthday sentiment in one of the gaps.

I used a stamp set from Altenew called ‘Floral Art’ inked up in Catherine Pooler inks in Tiki Torch, Tiara, Limoncello and Melon Ice.

Next is a card for one of Miss K’s friends who is turning 13 next week. I loved the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and #simplestamping idea at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge.

I used a stamp set from Altenew called “Halftone Circles’ inked up in Catherine Pooler inks in It’s a Girl and Be Mine for the cicles parts of the sketch and a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays called ‘Bold Wishes’ for the square part of the sketch and then I die cut number balloons for the leaf part of the sketch. I added a bit of twine for the balloon string and mounted it all on a black card base. I think this is pretty simple and could be made by a beginner stamper.

Lastly a card for Miss K who turns 12 later this month. I’m being guided by the Little Red Wagon, CAS(E) this Sketch and Seize the Birthday for her card.

Miss K loves sloths (LRM challenge) so when I found a stamp set with sloths on it, I knew I had to make her birthday card with it (STB challenge). I stamped one of the sloths and coloured him in with my Stampin Blends. I created the sentiment on my computer. I die cut a frame from SU Mossy Meadow cardstock (CTS challenge).

I hope she likes it. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. A lovely collection of birthday cards, Tristan! I love the Springtime colours and big floral blooms in your first card and such a cool way to add interest with the spaces. Very effective! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
