I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
Here is another birthday card that I made for my brother-in-law! I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge for the layout! (WSC40) All products are from Stampin' Up! I started with very vanilla, chocolate chip, wild wasabi, and a little bit of close to cocoa card stock. I used the Loads of Love and the It's Your Birthday stamps sets. I create the images I used chocolate chip and wild wasabi classic inks. I colored in the truck with my stampin' pastels. I used my cutter kit to distress the edges and sponged on creamy caramel ink to add an aged look to the card. I punched out the saying with the 1 3/8 circle punch, then layered that with the same size circle out of close to cocoa. I attached the circles and the main image with dimensionals.
It was a fun card to make!!! Thanks for looking!!!

And do anytime! I made this little purse for a close friend of mine for her birthday! I used 100% cotton yarn to make it!! She loved it!

Wow time has just been flying by!!! I have been sooo busy lately I have not had time to post anything!!!
We have had a lot of birthdays in our family lately so I have been making a lot of cards!!! I made this card for my brother whose birthday was a few days ago! All products are from Stampin' Up! The set is Birthday Whimsy from Sale-a-Bration! I also use the dotted circle stamp from So Much for the background. I used several In Colors. For the card stock, I used soft sky, blue bayou, chocolate chip, close to cocoa, wild wasabi, river rock, and whisper white! I used soft sky, blue bayou, and wild wasabi classic ink. I also used the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches. I also used my mat pack and my paper piercing tool to create a fun effect. I cut out the balloons and then layered them with dimensionals. I glued some cotton string to each of them and then tied the string together with blue bayou double stitched ribbon!
My sister also made a card for our brother! She used the Birthday Whimsy set also! Didn't she do a great job! She used soft sky, close to cocoa, and blue bayou cs. She used close to cocoa classic ink to stamp the main image and the saying! She used the mat pack and the paper piercing tool for the corners! I think it turned out great!!!
My mother-in-law came over and also created a birthday card for one of her sons that I have to get a picture of to show you all! She did a fantastic job with limited supplies and time!!!
Thanks for looking!!!

This card is the one I made for a swap I just did with a fantastic group of ladies!!! The theme was spring using current Stampin' Up! products. I used whisper white, close to cocoa, pretty in pink, and wild wasabi card stock. I used One of a Kind and Boho Backgrounds sets. I used pretty in pink and perfect plum classic inks. I also used my ticket corner, 1 3/8 circle and boho Blossoms punches. I used 1/4" grosgrain pretty in pink ribbon. To create the flower I stamped off the flower in perfect plum because I wanted a lighter color. I added the other flower that I punched out and then attached it with my bling brad! If you look really close you will notice that I used my 2-way glue pen on the brad and then dipped it into my dazzling diamonds. I added the two leaves that I had created with my circle punch to the edge of the flower. I then used stampin' dimensionals to attach the flower!!!
Thanks for looking and enjoy!
