So Suzy - Birthday Present

Hi Everyone,

do you need as many birthday cards as I do? I seem to be constantly needing them. So I decided to use this fun little present from from So Suzy Stamps to make yet another birthday card.

My Supplies:

Here is how I made my card:

Stamped the present twice onto silver shimmer paper and colored the presents.Fuzzy cut them.

Sponged my background with distress oxide ink and added water splatters for more interest.

Used a stitched die to create a "frame/border". Heat embossed the sentiment in white onto black card stock.

Mounted the sentiment and presents with foam tape for more dimension. Added Nuvo drops.
You see the shimmer a bit better on the obliqued picture.

AAA card challenges - Birthday (Happy Birthday to you too!)

Happy Stamping!

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....)
