CADB Post: Birthday Wishes

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. It's time once again for me to post on the Card A Day Blog. This weeks theme is " Birthday".

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, then added a piece of pink polka dot paper, cut to 5.25" x 4".

For my image, I stamped a birthday balloon image from "Stampendous", on a piece of white cardstock  using black ink, then cutting it down. To color the balloons, I used " Shimmerz ", the colors that I used were, Evergreen, Royal Red, and Ultra Marine. I used a paintbrush to apply the Shimmerz, and this gave the balloons a shimmery look. For the confetti, I used various different colors of " Smooch " pearlized accent ink, dabbing it on wherever there were dots for the confetti on the stamped image, and adding a few extras. I  inked around the edges with pink ink, then adhered the image to the left hand side of my card.

For my sentiment  I made a label from the Spellbinder die collection, Fancy Framed Tags Two, using white cardstock, then stamped my sentiment on the middle of it using pink ink. I inked the edges of the tag with the same pink ink, then attached it to my card using dimensional tape.

One of the Yahoo groups that I'm in has a birthday club, and I will be sending this card to someone in our group that is having a birthday this month.

I hope you liked my card, and that you leave me a comment if you have the chance. I really love hearing what everyone has to say about my creations.

Card A Day Blog Entry: My Sympathy

Hi there, it's time again for another entry for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is Sympathy. Here is the card I made for this post.

This car was really rather simple. I started off with a piece of designer paper, cut to approximately 2.5" x 5.5" and positioned it on a white card base about an inch or so below the top. I then adhered lace across the top and bottom of the designer paper. I placed three butterflies across the patterned paper that are from Recollections. I then added a stamped sentiment across the bottom of the card base. That's it, easy peasy.

Thanks for stopping by, and checking out my card. I would really love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment and let me know how you like it. Please visit the Card A Day Blog for some wonderful card making inspiration, and remember to check out our monthly challenge for the chance to win a great prize!

Hi everyone, today I'm posting my very first video tutorial which is for a challenge that I'm entering which is the April Build - A - Flower Challenge With Jules For Wild Orchid Crafts. If you would like to check out the details of the challenge, visit Jules' blog, The Jule Box, and go check it out.

For the challenge we were to make a video or picture tutorial to show how we made our flowers using plane, flat flowers, by adding color to them, and adding whatever embellishments we chose to use.

Here is my video that I made for the challenge.
