Thinking of you

When I made this card I was unable to scan it like my others, so I took a quick picture of it. So please ignore the shadows in the background. When I made this card I couldn't find blue letter stickers in the color I I tried a new technique by adding the letter stickers to the bottom of the card and painting over them with acrylic paint. After it dried I pulled the stickers off and put them back on the sticker sheet! Yay, I'll get to use them again!

The ribbon from the front of the card is tied in a bow on the inside of the card.
Supplies: flowers and brad by Imaginisce.

It's your Birthday!!!

Birthdays, Birthdays....I've made a card or two for the occasion! Here I used two similar products but made them have a completely different look and feel by using different techniques.

The first was for my brother so I gave it a grungy, distressed and morbid feeling. I ghost stamped skulls all over the card and inked it extra dark to fit his personal style.

The second card was for my hubby! I used lots of bright colored ribbon to give it an extra celebratory feel. The holographic cardstock was from a toy package (Princess I believe).

Supplies: patterned paper by DCWV, ribbon by American Crafts.

Birthdays are always a fun time to make a handmade card!!! I may not come up with the super-mushy or oober funny sentiments....but I can put a good amount of Love in my cards by creating them myself!

Of course I will be playing catch-up on my blog, so everything will be "late". I think in an effort to save me some time I will minimize my descriptions of products. If you want to know what a product is you can leave me a comment asking for a products manufacturer.

I usually leave out the sentiments in my cards...but here it is in all it's mushy glory!

Supplies and design from the Card Makers February card kit.
