HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY CARD!

I was asked recently by a friend to make a 1st Birthday card for her Grand-daughter.  All the requirements was that it was to be bright and fun.

So this is the result.  She was pleased with it.  It’s not her Grand-daughter’s birthday yet but I know that it is safe to post here.  You won’t tell right … 😉

I used the Number of Years set and the Large Numbers Framelits.  I am sad both these are going.  They are great for special numbered birthday cards.  I also used the Balloon Celebrations set for the bright, fun balloons.  They are easily cut with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  The colours used for the balloons are Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.  The card mat is Tempting Turquoise and the card base is Melon Mambo.  The Tempting Turquoise is a retiring colour.  A great big ‘1’ was cut from Silver Glimmer Paper.

The card was inspired by one on Pinterest.  I am not sure by whom now.

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and maybe some stamping time??

Have a great week.  Visit again soon,

Jenny

HAPPY (VALENTINE’S) BIRTHDAY!!!

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow. You probably realised that!! We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day that much in Australia.  Maybe a small treat for a special someone.  So I don’t normally buy Valentine’s stamp sets.  When I saw this set in the Occasions Catalogue though it was just the cutest AND doesn’t have to be used for Valentine’s Day.  These cute images are great for the young ones in your life.  What little boy or girl doesn’t like pretending to be a pirate!  I have a few Great nephews that I am sure this will be used for.  On the stamp set I cut the sentiments off a few of the stamps to make them more versatile.   On to the card.

I coloured the little pirate with the Blendabilities.  The sentiment is from ‘Amazing Birthday’.  I stamped it in black on the white card.  Then I stamped again in Real Red and Crushed Curry on scrap white and cut each of the “Happy” words out and adhered them straight over the top of the black ones. The Real Red base card was stamped with the blotches from ‘Gorgeous Grunge’.  I finished the card off with some Black Taffeta ribbon and some gold sequins.

So, me hearties have a Happy Valentine’s Day however you spend it.
