Birthday Card!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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).

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
So stay tuned!
Have a great day!  I think I need to go find some birthday cake!

  1. Super card Jennifer. I like all the different types of cards you did. I like the Zig pens those look like they are brilliantly bright colors, which is perfect for spring and summer. ๐Ÿ˜€
