Happy Birthday to you!

We just finished celebrating birthdays at my household, but I'm still in the birthday mood. With one birthday right after Christmas and the other a couple weeks into January, I feel like we celebrate for weeks. But my kids would say there's nothing wrong with that!

Our new mood board is so gorgeous; have you seen it yet? I couldn't make just one card that went along with it. I can't wait to have more time and make a scrapbook page that goes along with it as well; the colors are right up my alley!

I started my background by using my new distress oxide inks. I swiped onto the paper, spritzed with water, dried and then flicked a couple colors off my paint brush as well. Once I was satisfied with the background, I stamped the Victorine Originals Festively Wrapped Gift all over in two coordinating colors.

This Victorine Originals Happy Birthday stamp is so perfect that it doesn't need anything extra to stand out on a card! I matted it on pink cardstock and centered it on the card.

To finish off the card, I added some multi-colored twine along the edge. Simple, but perfect (I think).

Thanks for checking out my latest creation; I'm so happy to have more time again to get to create like I want.

Happy Birthday Monkey!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog -- YAY for me... 😃

Today I thought I would share a Birthday 
Card I made for a Teacher at School --

I got real inky making this card -- I'm using the ADORABLE
Monkeying Around Stamp set by Raisin Boat

Here's how I made it --

I started by Stamping the Monkey Image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink
Then I stamped the second monkey on some masking paper - then cut it out
I covered my Brown monkey with the masking paper then
proceeded to stamp the Balloon strings in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
I wanted them to overlap in my monkey's hand

Then I stamped my balloons in Memento Teal Zeal, & Lulu Lavender
Then in Hero Arts Soft Pink, & Ultra Pink
I made masks for my Balloons as well
because I wanted to create the cloud background --

Once everything was masked off -- I pulled out my
Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, & Faded Jeans
then I grabbed my Mini Cloud Stencil
I worked from the top down, using the darkest color first
and I kept rotating my stencil so my clouds would
be different on each row --

Once I finished stenciling, I sprayed my card design with some
Frost Shimmer Spritz Spray and dabbed it up with a paper towel
Then I used my Heat tool to dry my card piece completely
after it was dried I pulled the mask pieces up to reveal
my images -- 

I felt my Balloons and Monkey needed SPARKLE
since I was giving this to a female teacher -
So I pulled out some of my Spectrum Noir Sparkle
Pens in Rose Quartz, Pink Garnet, Inspired Violet, & Blue Topaz
and colored up the balloons with them --
Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella pen on my Monkey

I used my Black Micron Pen on the balloon strings, just so they 
would POP more --- After I was happy with my design
I die cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle die -
Giving me a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 card piece

I triple tied some Pink Twine and attached it by the
monkey hand with some Multi Medium glue --
Then attached my card piece to a piece of Fun Foam
so it would give it more dimension --

I found a matching Pink Cardstock piece - And die cut 
 a Scalloped Stitched Die with it
Then I attached the pink Scallop to my White card base
 I added my Monkey design to my card base and then
I Die cut a Stitched Banner and stamped
the Happy Birthday Sentiment 
Attached it to my card front and that was it!!

Happy Birthday #3

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using:

Happy Birthday 2871
Backgrounds Set

Today I want to share a fast and easy Birthday card with you.  The whole month I will be doing Birthday cards. 

Card Recipe:
 Using a piece of Neenah 80lb white card stock I stamped the Background Set/Stick Splatter all over the paper using versamark to which I applied WOW Clear Gloss super fine embossing powder and heat set I then applied Distress ink In Peacock Feathers to the whole panel. I then used versamark to stamp the Happy Birthday and applied WOW Clear Gloss super fine embossing powder and heat set. Distress Ink was once again used in Wilted Violet.  That cute little bow was die cut using a piece of scrap card stock that I distress inked with Peacock Feathers lightly. I glued the bow to the bottom of the balloon die cut layer and affixed a heart enamel dot this gives a nice little touch of sparkle to the bow.  I added a layer of foam to the backside of the balloon layer and glued it to the top of the splatter panel.  Finally the whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size side fold card.

Hey crafty friends. Amy here to share a thank you card using Raisin Boat's stamp set Curly cute.
This set is so cute and you can do anything with these stamps because they are so versatile.

I wanted to continue to learn about different backgrounds since my last project for our current challenge.
"Try Something New".
You can find it HERE...
And its still going on until Thursday!!

Using oxide inks, on water color paper, I spread them around with my distress tool until I was happy with the colors. 
I then added a few drops of water and dabbed it up right away. 
After drying, I stamped a pretty little flower from the Curly cute set in black.
I also stamped the thanks sentiment and swirly design under that on a seperate peice and colored the background just a touch.
Im finding these backgrounds to be super fun.

Isnt this neat?
You can find a list of products over on my blog at
