Thank You Card ~ Thankmew {2nd Post}

I have a CAS thank you card to share.
Aren't these little kitties cute.
I stamped one first, masked him off then added his friend.
Next I added the stripes to the base.
To finish up I framed up the kitties then added sentiment.

Birthday Card ~ Cherry On Top {1st Post}

Wow where has May gone?
I have a little koala birthday card to share,
First I colored him up then did a little fussy cutting.
The cute little cupcake is cut from some design paper.
To finish up I colored and fussy cut the cherry then 
placed it on top of the cupcake to match the sentiment.

Birthday Card ~ Bee-ing Together

I have been adding to my birthday card supply lately.
I tried a new to me technique to create my three tone background.
First I inked up my embossing folder with blue ink.
After embossing my card front I inked up the 
flowers by rubbing my ink pad over them.
To get my third color I simply left the rest white.
This sweet little bee family is going on a little outing.




*Large bees from the Hello Sunshine stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Large bees cut using the Hello Sunshine die set from Lawn Fawn.

*Y13 marker from Copic.
*Memento Grape Jelly, Bahama Blue, and Tuxedo Black stamp pads from Tsukineko.

Birthday Card ~ Birds On a Wire

I tried a new {to me} technique today.
I love to ink up my embossing folders to add color to my backgrounds.
First I inked up my embossing folder purple ink.
Next I rubbed over the raised numbers with a blue ink pad.
I love the two-tone effect it gave my back ground.
I die cut the sentiment to give my little birds a place to hang out.




*Birds from the Year Four stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Birds cut using the Year Four die set from Lawn Fawn.

Birthday Card ~ Birthday Bunch {3rd Post}

For my third birthday balloon card I took a little creative licence 
with the sketch turning it sideways and 
using the three balloons to represent the triangles.
This was really a creative stretch for me since 
I usually try to follow sketches pretty closely.
I left off the accent strip because I wanted this one to be real CAS.
I was real happy the string bow stamped so well over the die cut balloons.
I think this one will be going to one of my brothers {I have 4}



*Balloons from the Party Balloons stamp set from My Favorite Things.
*Balloons cut using the Party Balloons die set from My Favorite Things.
*Puntos/Points stencil from Latina Crafter.
*Memento Tuxedo Black and Cottage Ivy stamp pads from Tsukineko.

Birthday Card ~ And a Little Pink, Too {2nd Post}

I created my second card with a touch of pink.
I used a few more of the balloons I sponged up with a stencil.

Birthday Card ~ Black and Blue {1st Post}

I had a little fun inking up one of my stencils today.
I used to work with stencils years ago but haven't used one in years.
I sponged up my background and die cut balloons.
I stamped the center sentiment balloon to add a little pop of color.
