Couple of Birthday Cards

Hello everyone… Today, I have a couple of birthday cards to share with you all.

My first card is a clean-and-simple card that can be for him or for her. I created with Cupcake Wishes Digital Stamp and It’s Cake Time Digital Stamp from Graciellie Design.

I printed the cupcake image on a watercolor paper, and then colored it with Sakura Koi Watercolor and waterbrush. After that, I dried the image and fussy cut it with scissors. I printed the sentiment on a white cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment strip.

On a white cardstock, I stamped the stars confetti from Joy Clair – Let’s Celebrate Stamp Set with VersaMark ink pad and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder and craft heater. After that, I cut it with Divinity Design – Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. I added the background panel with permanent adhesive on a kraft card base.

I added the cupcake on the card with 3D foam tape and then the sentiment strip on top of the cupcake and secure each side on the card with adhesive glue.

My second card is a shaker card. I open 4 patterns of the Birthday Party Digital Papers with digital software, then I arranged them to fit perfectly on a 8.5″ x 11″ (letter size) cardstock. I printed them on a white cardstock with inkjet printer.Then, I trimmed one of the pattern and added it on a kraft card base with permanent adhesive.

I created that shaker box by cutting a heavyweight white cardstock with 2 sizes of the Double Stitched Squares Dies. I added a plastic acetate on it with double sided tape. I sprinkled some of the silver sequins on the card and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

I printed the sentiment from It’s Cake Time Digital Stamp on a white cardstock with laser printer, and I added the gold foil on it with DecoFoil sheet and laminator machine, then I added on the shaker window with permanent adhesive. I embellished the card with those 3D balloons sticker.

Gracie is celebrating her BIRTHDAY this month. All birthday digital stamps and digital papers are on sale starting today. Check them all out here! Here’s the ones I used on my projects today:

I hope you all like my cards today… Thank you so much for stopping by!

May Challenge

AAA Card Challenge And Joy Clair | Hello

Hello everyone… First of all… HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of you, amazing moms! You are not a hero to the world but you are the hero of your family. Nothing is like you!

Today, I have a clean and simple, one layer card to share with you all that I created with Joy Clair stamps: My Cup Runneth Over stamp set and Hello Sentiments stamp set.

I stamped the cup image on Bazzill cardstock (the card base) with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad, a little bit off the edge. After that, I dried the ink with craft heater and I colored it with Arteza watercolor pencils and water brush. I am so impress with Bazzill cardstock that can hold the water really well.

I simply stamped the sentiment on the card with VersaFine Clair Ink Pad.

I am playing along with the AAA Cards, CAS Game #140. This time the challenge is to create a CAS card with this this theme: Up to One Third with a Bright Colours Twist. I hope this card can give you an idea to create for this challenge. I thought rainbow color is bright colours, too.

Joy Clair is the sponsor for this challenge and they are giving away a $25 gift certificate to spend at the Joy Clair store.

Thank you so much for stopping by… Have a fabulous day!

Things With Wings Blog Hop and Link Up Party | Spread Your Wings and Be Ready To Soar

Hello hello hello… Welcome back to my blog today! Today, I have a Spring themed mixed media card to share with you all.

Today I join STAMPlorations for the 2019 Things With Wings Blog Hop. I join this 31 Days of Celebrating Spring with this mixed media card.

I used 2 of my newly released ARTplorations Stencils (Make Marks 4 and Make Marks 5), Gelli Art Plate, and heavybody acrylic paints to create the monoprint background. I added the background panel on a white card base with permanent adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from the Trendy Birds 2 stamp set directly on the background panel with VersaFine Clair Nocture ink pad and then I dried the ink with craft heater.

I stamped the bird from the same stamp set with VersaFine Clair Warm Breeze ink pad on a white cardstock, dried it, and fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors.

I cut out another white cardstock using 2 dies from the Bracket Labels/Tags Nesting Dies to create the frame. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape and I added the bird on top on the frame with adhesive glue and 3D foam tape.

And for this last day, I have not only one card but three cards to share with you all!

My first card is I created using the digital stamp set and digital paper from Graciellie Design, who is one of the Super Sponsors.

I printed the image on a mixed media paper in black and white using my home inkjet printer. After that, I dried the ink with craft heater.

I colored that pretty mug with Arteza watercolor and I use Signo Ball White Gel Pen to add those dots for extra texture.

The border die is from A Jillian Vance Design, who is also one of the Super Sponsors.

On my second card, I use the stamp sets and the new coffee clear sticker from STAMPlorations, who is one of the Super Sponsors. I colored the roses in the mug with Sakura Koi Water Colors and waterbrush. I added some splatters with white acrylic paint and water using fan brush.

For the background, I cut out a white cardstock with the background die from Divinity Designs, who is also one of the Super Sponsors. I added it on the dark blue card base that I made from Bazzill Cardstock.

And the third card, I used a new stamp that I got couple weeks ago from Stampendous. It is a rubber stamp with wooded block. I love the antique china cups. They remind me of the cups my grandma used to have.

I stamped the image with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad on a watercolor paper and colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens and water brush. After that, I fussy cut the image with micro-tip scissors.

For the background on this card, I used the background die from A Jillian Vance Design. I cut out a white card with it and added it on a ivory card base.

I added the stacked cups image on the card and the sentiment is from the coffee stickers from STAMPlorations,

I totally have been having so much fun creating coffee and tea themed cards during this blog hop week. I would like to THANK ALL SUPER SPONSORS for their generosity and kindness they share with our Coffee Loving Cardmakers Community!
