Endless Birthday Wishes

I made this clean and simple  birthday card using the Endless Birthday Wishes cake stamp along with a sentiment from a recent Sale-a-Bration set.
The techniques used were masking and sponging.
Markers were used to color the cake and it was embellished with a Wink of Stella pen. I love how that pen makes such a pretty sparkle on a simple card.

I am entering this card in the Less is More card challenge to make a one-layer card using the theme "Time".
It's always fun to create something new with special techniques.

Sprinkles of Life Birthday Pop-up Card

I was making a card for my granddaughter's  birthday and  I decided to use the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.
This is the card front.  The card is a tent fold.  I used Lost Lagoon card stock (retired) for the card base, and layered dsp on the front. I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to display the sentiment.

When the card is open the center pops up to display the Sprinkles of Life ice cream cone.
The ice cream was stamped on Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Chocolate Chip card stock using VersaMark ink. It was embossed with white EP.  The back side of the ice cream cone was stamped and cut out with paper snips.  The scoops were punched out and attached to each like piece to create a uniform-looking image all around.

I used the half-circle pop up card tutorial by Julie Davidson to make the pop up element inside my card.
The numbers were made with the Large Numbers Framelits by cutting three layers of card stock topped with the matching dsp.  They really add nice dimension.
Inside, the sentiment was stamped under the verse.  I love how this card turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!  I welcome your comments or questions.

Artistically Asian friendship card

This is my first attempt at inking up the beautiful Artistically Asian stamp set. 
 I love the graceful lines and simplicity of the images.

I used Real Red card stock for the card base and cut an oval shape in the front to highlight the image.
Markers were used to ink the image before stamping.
The Asian letters at the top left were embossed with gold EP. 

The second photo shows the sentiment up close. It was embossed with black EP.

 I am entering this card in the Freshly Made Sketches #244 card challenge. Here  is the sketch I followed:

Pretty Pear Thank You

I pulled out the Apple of My Eye (retired) stamp set yesterday.  I needed a nice Thank You card for a friend.
I used the Pear as the main image.
When looking through my paper stash I found this pretty green DSP with leaves that look like the leaves in the stamp set I had selected.  A perfect match, I thought!

I used a Framelit from the Labels Collection for the card front.  It was shaded with Pear Pizzazz ink and a sponge dauber. Next, some Gorgeous Grunge spatter was added  to the background and then I attached the whole thing to a piece of Pacific Point card stock.  I love how that color frames the card.  The tent fold card base is Tempting Turquoise.
The sweet Thank You stamp is from the beautiful Rose Wonder stamp set.
It was such an easy card to make.  The colors make the card!

I am entering this card in the Can You Case It color challenge this week.
We were to use the colors blue, turquoise and lime. Here is the challenge:
I love these colors together!
Below are items you can use or purchase to make this card:

Timeless Talk birthday card

I made this masculine card to have on hand.  I have a lot of birthdays coming up soon and I'm sure I will need it.
The stamp set is Timeless Talk (retired), and the background paper with the music notes was just what I needed to complete the theme. Very Vanilla and Basic Black card stock were used to make this card.  I also used the Banner Framelits for the sentiment.

I  am entering this card in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge 243.
