Birthday Card for a Boy

This card is great for a boy or a boy at heart who likes or loves trains. I used the Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum Lawn Fawn set for the train and smoke. The Happy Birthday is from Hats off to You. I colored it in with Copics and I have a quick simple card.

I hope you’ve enjoyed birthday card week! Thanks for reading and happy crafting! ❤ Ann

I’m so glad I bought a new lens. My card photography will be improving in the future!

Birthday gift set

These cards are just 2 in a set of 6 I made for gifts. I love having these are round for a last minute birthday, thank you, or such. I pick 6 card bases that are in the same color family. For this one i put a scalloped edge with a border punch and the used my Technique Tuesday set and added Happy Birthday to the bottom in a brown ink.

Thanks for reading! Happy Crafting! ❤ Ann

Happy Birthday: Silhouette P&C idea

To create the butterflies I first took the design from my Silhouette and printed them out and before putting it in the Silhouette to cut I colored them in with Copics. I then sent them to be cut and I had perfect color and sized butterflies for my card. The greeting is Lawn Fawn’s Quinn’s ABCs.

2 for Tuesday: Birthday cards

These cards were fun and easy to make. I colored and cut out the gifts from a Lawn Fawn’s Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum set. I trimmed down a sheet of scrap to 4×5.25 (the Chevron is Echo Park, the stripes is Authentique) I cut the labels out with the Silhouette and stamped Celebrate from the Technique Tuesday Studio AE sets from March 2011. I wrapped some twine around it. A great card that can be adapted for his and hers.

Happy Birthday Week

Welcome to the card inspiration week for February.  My plan is to keep my posts going for the next month during our move and getting settled, but I apologize now if I miss a Friday or two.

I made this card for my MILs birthday last week. I used a piece of 6×6 Basic Grey that I’ve had for awhile. I cut the scalloped circles with the Silhouette. I stamped and colored the flower pot from Lawn Fawn’s On the Mend stamp set.  The label is also cut with the Silhouette. I stamped the greeting with Lawn Fawn’s Sophie’s Sentiments. I added the brads after coloring them purple with a Copic marker.

Thanks for reading and happy crafting. ❤ Ann

My card photography should be approving after the move. I’ve bought a new lens for my camera which should help me take better photos. I’m also hoping to have natural light in my place. Something I don’t have before.

Thank U

I used some of the October Afternoon Sasparilia I received as a prize over the summer. I used 2 sheets of paper for this card. I used the sheet High Noon for the base (yellow pattern) and the letters for the greeting. The blue strip is from the Rustler sheet (which has a red bandana patterned on the front) I mounted it on a back base and I have a quick masculine thank you card.

Clear to See..again

Yes, I have shard a valentines card with this stamp set already, but it’s cute and I was feeling inspired by it. This one also adds in Say Cheese and those swirls are from the December Studio AE set. The twine and paper a We R Memory Keepers. I stamped the glasses on a Project Life grid card. One of my favorite stamping surfaces.

Thanks for reading and happy crafting! ❤ Ann
