Oh My!

My sister, Helen, will be celebrating her birthday on Monday.
Helen is owned by her very bossy cat, Woody.
So I've used part of this digital image by The Paper Shelter, called Oh My! for her card this year...

I coloured the kitty with Promarkers (and added a bit of wink of stella to the pink bows too), before fussy cutting it out, then adding funky foam to the back for dimension.
The HAPPY balloons are from a Mama Elephant stamp set (Celebration Balloons)
The paper is by Lawn Fawn (Perfectly Plaid)

Now, onto the card i've made for Jake to give to her...

I was given a gift of some metal dies. This cat die was in with them.
I teamed it up with a few balloons from that same Mama Elephant stamp set that I used above.
I used metallic sequins and Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up (Tasty Treats).

Stippled Blossoms for 2 special birthdays.

I was asked today to make cards for 2 ladies celebrating special birthdays over the next week.
Time was against me a little, because these needed to be done quickly so that there is time for them to be signed by all the staff where we work.
I decided to get out my SU Stippled Blossoms set again, and do the same card but in 2 different colour ways.
Here's the results...

I stamped the design on inside of each card to match, using the more detailed stamp of the set. I've seen this done before and really liked the resulting 'backing paper', and i'm really happy with how they both turned out.

Only wish that I'd realised that i'd run out of lilac/purple gems BEFORE I stamped and stuck it all down!

I stamped the flowers and leaves using Memento dew drop inks.
The colours used for the pink card were Angel Pink & Rose Bud, and for the purple were Lulu Lavender & Grape Jelly, The leaves for both cards were stamped using Pistachio & Olive Grove.

Hopefully they'll like their cards.
