A Few Birthday Cards!


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!!!

Pale blue and brown are one of my fave combos and the green in the first card gives it a really fresh lift: Lovely.
