Beer-day card

My daughter's fiance is celebrating his birthday today, here's the card i've made for him...

I used the pre-coloured pint image from Dr Digi and cut it out.
You can't see it in the pic, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the beer froth.
The papers are by Craftwork Cards (Man Made).
The pint itself and wooden look piece are both raised with foam pads to add dimension and interest.
I stamped the greeting at the bottom, and added his name with Tattered Lace alphabet dies.
Hope he likes it!

Happy Days

Here's a bright, colourful birthday card that I really enjoyed making today...

I used an image from a set of 3 from DigiStamp Boutique called Maddie Happy Days.
I coloured Maddie with promarkers, then fussy cut her out.
I wanted a fun back-drop for her so decided to use the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge, adding candles (made from flattened straws) and balloons.
I used 4 different papers from the same pad (Doodlebug's Hello Sunshine).

I'd like to enter this card at:
Sketch Saturday - sketch #473

Thanks for stopping by today xx

For my friend...

I wanted to make my doggy loving friend a birthday card using some of the stamps from my Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp set...

I coloured the images with promarkers before fussy cutting them out.
The background was made using a paw print embossing folder by Darice, and I used a spellbinders die to cut a frame into the front of the card.
The sentiment is made from stamps by Craftwork Cards (Label Tape Sentiments), and a Clearly Besotted word die.

Clearly Besotted Love Quotes

I was rummaging through my stamp sets the other day, and found one that I haven't used for quite a while... Love Quotes by Clearly Besotted Stamps.
Here's a couple of cards that I've made using it...

I stamped the flowers using Memento inks, then cut them out using the matching dies.
The background was made using a wood grain stamp from Kaisercraft, and a script stamp from Imagination Crafts.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up's 'Bring on the cake' stamp set.

This simple card used papers that are all from the same pad by Lawn Fawn (Let's Polka in the Meadow), and the sentiment stamp is from an old set by All Night Media.

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend xx
