Frosted Pink Gold Cupcake Card

Hi y’all! I’m participating in my first Craft Roulette Challenge! This birthday card is pretty different from my normal style but, I think it’s super fun! The colors were inspired by the Color Hue Challenge.

Texture and shine! 2 of my favorite things in a card! For the white background, I used an embossing folder to give it some dimension. I angled cut it and offset it with gold foil paper. I tried something different this time around and embossed a sentiment on the foil paper! It turned out better than I expected. Thankfully the happy birthday fit perfectly!

For the frosting I ink blended 2 different shades of Altenew Dye ink onto a light pink paper. For the candle, I alternated between gold foil and gold sparkle paper. The cupcake liner I altered with a muted gold textured paper and a foil gold paper. I backed the card on pink. I hope y’all enjoyed this card and it inspires you to take a shake at a handmade birthday card soon!

Blue Green Birthday Card

I’ve had this camera die cut / stamp set for a bit and I’m so happy I finally got to put it to use! I started off with coloring my little monster with copics. Then, I colored the camera and the picture frame. I glued 3 layers for the picture frame. Rather than using foam tape, I did 3 layers of scrap strips throughout the back of the camera. I made sure to avoid where the photo would hide when not pulled out. I did find hand stamping with a block was easier for the pull here sentiment. I felt like the paper gave the look of the flash that a camera has. I also used a white gel pen on the camera flash to draw x’ and used a glitter pen over it to give the illusion of an actual flash.

On the inside of this I decided to have a bigger happy birthday sentiment. I wanted to keep the vibe of the card big.

Eeek! Made my first Design Team! I’m so excited to be joining the Happy Little Stampers: Birthday Challenge team! I made this birthday card to get things started with them! I also made it for a dear friend of mine that is the best dog Mom around!

I started this card off with ink blending with paw prints onto as an accent strip. Then, I colored this cute girl and her dog! Then, I fussy cut it out and glued it on top of the paw prints towards the right side. I had stamped my sentiment directly on the paper but, I decided that I did not like the color ink I chose. So, I grabbed a piece of white paper and stamped it. I thought that it was too much white and was distracting though. So I colored over it with my copic marker and assembled the rest of the card. I love how easy it is to change the color of sentiment strips with copics!

Thank you so much for reading! I’m so excited to start this journey on my first design team! Happy Crafting!

Celebrate Card + 2 FREEBIES

I’m back today with a card with some goodies I received from So, thank you again for those! I wanted to do a card for the Seize your Birthday but, the challenge was no stamping! A hard one for me! Also, Hero Arts was all about squares. Yet again, something outside my comfort zone. However, I embraced it, and it turned out nicely.

First, I blocked off one square at a time with tape and ink blended with distress oxide. Then, I used the Yay stencil on top of the square. I made sure to rotate it so that it was like a diamond (another form of a square) of yays. Then, I did 2 layers of celebrate with white cardstock and 1 last year with green and silver.

Beyond Basic Backgrounds

Hello y’all! I hope y’all are having a great day! I’m back with another project for the AECP Level 2! I’m excited to share with y’all this birthday card I made with the Beyond Basic Backgrounds class in mind. Throughout making this course I was very drawn to the vellum accents Lydia Evans would use! I knew that I had to figure out a way to incorporate that into a card!

I decided for my beyond basic background that a watercolor background would be fun! I used Altenew dye inks to achieve this look. I stamped my flower and water colored it with inks as well. To give the flower some extra pzazz, I applied a shimmer with my glitter pen. Then, I fussy cut it. I felt like it needed something to make the flower pop though. So I decided to outline various parts in black.

To add my finishing touch, I gold embossed Happy Birthday onto the vellum and adhered it to the card.

Things have been crazy here with doctors appointments and me trying to focus on AECP. I had accidentally put coloring on the back burner which was a mistake because I love coloring! It’s such a relaxing thing to me. So I decided to pick it back up when I started searching the web for challenges and found a few awesome ones to try out! I have been wanting to use this mermaid but, really didn’t know how until I came across this underwater themed stamp.

Color Your Day

Hello again, when I sat down to make this card for my AECP Color Your Day course, I was inspired by the Altenew Inspiration Challenge and a birthday card challenge at Addicted to Stamping. I decided to use my Garden Roses as a background. I liked how this course recommended doing a color that matched as the outline rather than just black. I used Persian Blue. I find stamping with an acrylic block rather than my Misti is easier for these kinds of backgrounds. 

I knew that I wanted to use die cut letters for happy but, when I put them on to see how it looked, the white background was too much. So, I decided to mask off the roses and apply Lime ink with my blending brush. Boy did that really bring those roses to life!

To finish things off, I glued the letters on and thought putting birthday on happy would be a fun touch! 

Until next time,
