Some fun new birthday cards



I recently found these cute girl stamps by The Greeting Farm and thought they would be perfect for some upcoming family birthdays! I am hoping to get the boy set soon so I can make some cards for my grandsons too!

June Stamp 'n Chat


This was my card for this month's chat. I hadn't yet received my new items from Stampin' Up and their new in-colors, so I used some from the previous year.  This involved some 2-step stamping and some stamping off of the solid images.  I also gave the gals the option of mounting it horizontally rather than vertically.

Gift Bag for my Sister


This was the gift bag that I made for my sister's birthday gift.
I had recently been to a fun stamping meetup of my friend, Mercedes Weber, and she had die cut many flowers for us to use on some amazing projects. I had some flowerpieces left over and made this one to use on the gift bag for my sister.
If you want to see Mercedes' work, go to her blog linked on the right side of my site here--Share~Inspire~Create.

Birthday Card for my Sister


My sister absolutely loves roses, so I knew that this card would be perfect for her. 
I used the new Distress Oxide inks and a Tim Holtz stencil to make this card. Love the colors!!!

Way to alter a saying on a stamp


I really liked this stamp set when I saw it in the new Occasions Stampin' Up catalog. Except I really didn't care for the stamp that said "At least you're still pretty."  I thought it was rather insulting and I would definitely not enjoy receiving a card with this sentiment on it. Therefore, I decided to alter the stamp so that I could still use it. Using a razor blade, I cut out the "At, least, still" from the photopolymer.  Then you could use many words inside the card, such as "awesome, wonderful, amazing, sweet, fun, cool" just to name a few.
I made a card using the "wonderful" from a Technique Tuesday stamp set on the inside of the card.

January Stamp 'n Chat


This is my card for this month's stamp 'n chat.
I've been out of the loop because I've been really sick for quite a while. Finally feeling better and looking forward to doing more stamping again. I got the idea for this card from Pinterest (karenskreativekards.blogspot.ca).
