It's a birthday. Who wants a card?

These are all I Stampability stamps. I first stamped the background several times to cover. I then stamped my critters and lightly colored them before mounting to cardstock. The sentiment was added last to the left corner.

SUPPLIES: Stamps: Stampability, Corner punch: Stampin' Up, Ink: Colorbok, Markers: Marvy Uchida, Brads: Making Memories

This is one of my favorite cards!

I created a yellow 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card, then cut the black a little smaller. I ran the black through the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. I then cut the scalloped piece from the Cricut Mini Monograms Cartridge. The scalloped pieces were cut from Spellbinders Nestability dies. The small square in the center was run through the Cuttlebug folder for more dimension. I stamped the sentiments and added some Craf T Chalk to the birthday cake.

SUPPLIES: Bazzill cardstock, Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge,Cuttlebug embossing folders, Imaginesce stamps, Craf T Chalk, Memento ink,Staples

Was working with the beautiful Technique Tuesday stamps recently. The Damask stamp is lovely and created a really nice background. Once I had the background completed, I used the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder over it. I love how it looks!!

I then used Technique Tuesday stamps for DAD and cut them out, leaving a little border which I inked some more.

A little ribbon, some mini hearts (also Technique Tuesday and cut out) were attached with Around the Block's Paper Tagger (love that thing!).


Well, it was my nephew's 18th birthday yesterday so I created this card for him.
