Masculine Big News birthday card

I needed a birthday card for a male co-worker, and masculine cards are tricky!  I found the striped DSP in the All Abloom paper stack and adhered it to a Soft Sky card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Big News in Island Indigo onto Whisper White.  I added the candle as an exclamation point and colored in the flame with Daffodil Delight.  The mat is Basic Black.  I stamped the Woohoo pennant in Island Indigo onto Soft Sky and cut it out by hand.  The sentiment inside the card says Enjoy the fuss!
Happy stamping!

Mama's Amazing Birthday card

Mama's favorite color is teal, so Island Indigo is perfect for making her birthday card.  The DSP is from the All Abloom paper stack.  The sentiment is from Amazing Birthday and cut out with the pennants framelits.  I added Dazzling Details to all of the flower centers to add a little bling to the card.

Baby shower card

This baby card is for a friend who is having a girl.  I started with the All Abloom DSP stack.  I adhered it to a Pink Pirouette card base.  The flower from Flower Shop is stamped with Mossy Meadow and colored with Daffodil Delight Blendabilities.  The flower center is from the retired set Ciao Baby and is stamped with Mossy Meadow onto Pistachio Pudding.  I cut it out with the smallest circle framelit.  White ribbon and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes complete the card.

Christmas card!

Here's my first Christmas card of the year!  Believe it or not, I made it using the October paper pumpkin kit, Sweet as Pie.  I cut up one of the pie boxes to make the tree.  I cut off 1/2" from the bottom to make it fit on the card.  The box already had the dots on it, so I just added some glimmer paper stars punched with the Confetti Stars punch.   The star is stamped with the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and cut out with the Stars framelits.  The sentiment is also from Bright and Beautiful.  I punched it with the banner punch and trimmed down the sides.  The cardbase is Crumb Cake with an Old Olive layer embossed with the dots embossing folder.

Wisteria Blendabilities

I created this card from leftovers on my craft table.  The cardbase is Smoky Slate, and I sponged diagonal stripes in Wisteria Wonder using the new decorative masks.
The tag is Whisper White, punched with the scalloped tag punch.  I added All is Calm washi tape, Wisteria Wonder seam binding ribbon and a sentiment from Good Greetings.
The pansy from Flower Shop is colored with the Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities.  I added highlights with the color lifter and Dazzling Details then punched with the pansy punch.
Happy stamping!

Calling All Heroes birthday card

 
Boy did I struggle with this card!  I wanted to make my son Daniel's birthday card using this set because we both love comics and superheroes.  I found a few cards on Pinterest that I liked.  I tried CASEing one of them, and I just could not make those rows of dots line up!  I finally broke out my stampamajig which I have not used in forever!  I ended up combining elements of 2 different cards to make this one.  You can see them on my Stampin' Up inspiration Pinterest page.
The cardbase is Basic Black.  I wrote inside using the chalk marker, but you could add a whisper white layer to the inside.  The top layer is 5 X 3 3/4 whisper white.  I stamped the dots in Daffodil Delight using the stampamajig.  I stamped the cityscape twice on another piece of cardstock and cut them out.  I stamped the shapes on a separate piece of cardstock, added the words and cut those out too.  I stamped the face and punched it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch then added a black 1 3/4" circle.
Happy stamping!
