Birthday Card

Here is a card that I made for my Dad.  He is an avid bicyclist, so the paper was a great find. 

For this card, I welded 4 circles together on my Gypsy, to create the small envelope.  The small card was embossed with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Here is a card that was inspired from a card on Pinterest.

The strawberries were cut from the Preserves Cricut cartridge at 1.5 inches.  They were then embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  For the background, several 1/4" strips of brown paper were cut, and then woven.  The label at the bottom is from the Fabulous Finds Cricut cartridge.

Birthday Flowers

Recently I took the Copic Standard Certification class (for more information on the classes and locations:, and we used the Copic Airbrush system.  I airbrushed the outer and inner flowers with R85.  When I got home, I realized that the flowers could be stacked and used on a card. 

The flowers were stacked and attached with a brad.  The flourish and sentiment were stamped with Versamark, and then embossed with Stampendous detailed white embossing powder.

Stampendous Inspired Card

Here is a card was inspired by a post on the Stampendous Blog.  The original post can be found here:  I really liked the card and the colors, and fortunately I had the stamp, the embossing powders, the ribbon, the brads and the card stock.

First I decided to make the card as described in the blog. I modified the card slightly, but basically followed the instructions provided on the Stampendous Blog. 

Once I knew I had the technique down, I used a stamp from Greenhouse Society.  For this card, I used a wine colored background, and a pink flower.  I omitted the brads for this version.  Overall, I liked the silver on the wine backgroung better, but liked the red flower better.
