Happy half birthday

I have been seeing loads of designs with cats on lately and wanted to make a card for my friend.  However her birthday is in December, so I decided to make her a “half birthday” card!

I used a TiddlyInks digital stamp, coloured it with Copics and cut it out.  I then used a dotty stencil and distress ink for the background.  I made another stencil by cutting out paw shapes and using the holes as the stencil.  The sentiment is stamped in Stazon black ink.

TiddlyInks Challenge #183

This is my card for the new TiddlyInks challenge.  The digistamp is called Schoolboy from TiddlyInks.  I coloured it in with Copics, then cut it out.  I stamped a Kraft baseboard with some Crafter’s Companion Journal Jottings stamps using Distress Ink.  Then I die cut the numbers and added Distress Ink again.  Stuck them on, added the image with sticky buds and die cut the words Happy Birthday on white card coloured with Distress Ink.

Green Elf card

I discovered Julia Spiri digital stamps about a week ago, and bought a couple of images.  The first one is a little elf which I have coloured with my Copic Markers.

I hand drew around the edges of the various papers and scuffed up the edges, then added a couple of brads and some buttons and ribbon.  The base card is a Gorjuss card blank and envelope.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp free with Creative Stamping magazine a while ago.

Not sure who this card is going to yet.

Anniversary hearts and birthday flowers

I took a blank white rectangle of card and used a background stamp to add one line in black and two in purple.  I drew around the edge of the card with a black fine-liner pen.

I sprayed purple and red spritzing ink onto white card and then die cut three hearts from the result.  I stuck them along the stamped lines vertically and outlined them with the black pen.

I stamp the greeting and cut it out, inked the edges and stuck it to the card.  Then inked the edges of the card and stuck it to a white card blank and doodled round the edges of that.  I added two purple gems to the sentiment and liquid pearls to the hearts.

On this one I followed a card in a magazine.  I made a card blank from brown yardstick.  Then cut two patterned papers the same size and doodled around the edges.  I stuck one on the other on the brown card, overlapping.

I then stamped the flowers and fussy cut them out, stuck them on and drew leaves.  I wrote the sentiments and added those.  Finally I put liquid pearls in the centres of the flowers.
