Happy Friday All,
Deborah here sharing a Birthday card I made for this months theme – Female Birthday.
Do you have any special “female” family members or friends you need a Birthday card for within the next few months?? Well the card I am sharing today is a card you can make using any thing you have on hand. As long as you have few sheets of patterned paper, punch, brads or color sprays.
I made this easy card today using a square punch, corner punch and a border punch, and Recollections brads,a couple of DCWV paper stack and a A2 card (pre-embossed) from their card/envelope stack. I also used Prima Bloom Sprays. (All supplies listed below)
For the card I made below I did use a sketch from DCWV blog.
Here is my card:
I sprayed the outside of my card first with my Color Bloom Sprays, set aside to dry.
I punched out 10 squares and used my corner punch on opposite side of the
squares for the odd shape, and layered.
I used the Martha Stewart Daisy Edge punch, wrapped pink twine around 4 times.
Fussy cut the flower, the brown border flag with the
orange sentiment. Used 5 Recollections brads – 1 on flower & 4 on the
Papers – DCWV – Collage Art paper stack; the Celebration paper stack (Happy Birthday sentiment only); DCWV – A2 card/envelope stack (pre-embossed)
Inks – Prima Color Bloom Sprays – Cotton Candy, Soft Teal; Iris
Accessories – Recollections brads- Fall; Martha Stewart – Daisy edge punch; Corner punch;pink twine from stash

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I am here to share my card I created for this month’s birthday theme challenge.
I have been really into pastel colors lately and decided I would start with a pink piece of 8 1/2″ x 5″ which I folded in half to create the card base. I cut a piece kraft and printed cardstocks slightly smaller than the front and inked all the edges before adhering to the base of the card.
Next I glued a mint green doily to the base along three scraps of patterned cardstock from my scrap stash and trim.
The cupcake image
is a printable that I sized up. I distressed the edges and inked. I added a sequin and a Dew Drop
to the top of the cupcake and tada…finished! 🙂 If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!
Happy Ides of March! And Happy Birthday to me!!!
This month’s theme is Birthday cards (since March is my birthday month).
I wanted to share a few cards with you… I’ve been on the design team over at http://cardadaychallenge.blogspot.com/ so I’ve been making quite a few cards lately… so these are a few of the birthday cards I’ve done for them…
So I’ll give you a few 🙂
Wanted a simple black & white card with just some color. Wanted to make the balloons pop, and have it be just a cute little card. These are great adorn it watercolor sheets I picked up at CHA.
Supplies – Adorn It watercolor sheet, Zig clean color pens, ATG, water & paintbrush.
I am obsessed with the Zig pens – I had bought the 24 set at the scrapbook expo – and now have bought the 60 set on Amazon (cheaper than I paid for the 24) – Zig
I thought this would be a great use of a paper pack where all of the papers coordinate and the paper is double sided. It needed more pop after it was done so I added some embellishments and wink of stella. I used the deco foil with dies for the first time – super easy!!!
Supplies – Close to my heart Sangria paper pack, craft easy tear tape. icraft Deco foil, i craft easy cut adhesive, wink of stella gold, queen & co pearls, banner dies from stamps of life & sizzix. Birthday dies (Not sure of brand).

Forever in time chalkboard stickers

And I wanted to share with you that I’ve been working on some “not cards no paper” crafts – I feel like I’m cheating on cards – but wanted to share with you that I’ll be posting some stuff with items I got at CHA – and I’m excited. It’s been pretty challenging for me (outside of my comfort zone)… but I wanted to try something new (and do scary stuff – a la Year of Yes
– a great book if you haven’t read it yet).
I’ve also gotten quite a few new crafting goodies (I bought the Mint, and some other cool stuff) so there will be some new things 🙂
So stay tuned!
Have a great day! I think I need to go find some birthday cake!
