Happy Birthday Mouse

This is one of those different stamps that has to fit the right person, some just think it is not right for everyone. Mice and food don't exactly go together, but I have seen worse on a card then a mouse in the icing. I think he is cute. I colored his with Tombow Markers and used a Gel Pen for the dots on the icing.

Stamps: Whipper Snapper and Stampin Up
Paper: My Stash
Embellishments: Large Brad
Others: EK Scallop Border Punch, Stampin Up Punches and Dotted Cuttlebug A2 Folder

Apple of My Eye

I just love this cute little Bella. I seen this card on Tammy's blog and I just had to make one. I changed a few things, but I liked the layout, so I kept that part of the card. The Bella stamps are so easy to color and turn out so nice. You can't tell it, but my apple is really shimmery. And my scanner isn't doing it's job right tonight. So excuse my scanner, it must be having a bad Monday on Tuesday.
Stamps: Bella
Paper: Bo Bunny

Birthday Wishes

A friend of mine had this stamp set and I just had to borrow it and see what I could make with it. I love the violets. They are so pretty and they remind me of my mom. She loved violets and anything that was the color purple/lavender. I wish she was here so I could give her this card. I know she would love it. I colored the violets with a marker and the leaves and stems are colored with prisma colored pencils and used a blender to blend them in.

Stamps: Sweet Violets (Flourishes)
Paper: From my stash
Other: Nestie Label 2, Cuttlebug A2 Folder (Swirls), circle punches (Stampin Up) and border punch (Martha Stewart).

Better Late Than Never

Need a fast "missed your birthday" card. Try this one, it is quick and easy. So cute and adorable. Love the snail and dragonfly. I colored the snail's head with prisma colored pencils and then used a blender pen. Cut out the snail shell with designer paper and attached it to the snail. How easy is that. The inside has the sentiment " I wanted your birthday to last longer."

Stamps: There She Goes
Paper: Bo Bunny Dots
Embellishments: Ribbon from my stash
Other: Oval Punches from Stampin Up

Birthday Celebrations

I needed a Blue Birthday Card, and I wanted to use the Upsy Daisies for my card. My friend loves blue and for her birthday why not make a blue one. I like how this card turned out. I embossed the daisies in white embossing powder on Bo Bunny Blue Dots Designer Paper. I used Bayou Blue for the sentiment and also on the brads. Then I added a sheer White Ribbon and tied a simple knot. I liked how this card turned out.
Stamps: Stampin Up
Paper: Bo Bunny Dots
Ink: Blue Bayou

Happy Birthday

Isn't this a nice stamp set?
I love the tire in the tree.
Reminds me of long ago when you did have a tire in a tree growing up.
Love the Green and pink color combo with a touch of black. The base for the card is white, but the green and pink totally cover up the white.
Stamps: Stampin Up
Paper: Bo Bunny Dots, green, black and white from my stash
Ink: Stampin Up: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and a pink for the butterflies also Stampin Up. I can't remember the color of the pink.
