Birthday, Occasions & Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

It’s a piece of cake for a 21st!

Today, I am sharing a card that I was asked to make for friend’s friend. The brief was Black, Silver & Gold, 21st birthday of a young lady named Lia. I like to try and use all the info when making these special occasion cards and I think I have met the brief. What do you think?

The black card base has a layer of Gold Foil with another black card layer over the top. A silver square layer with another smaller black layer with a 1-3/4″ circle punched out of the centre. The 21 are cut with the retired Little Numbers dies which are still so handy to have! The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the Holiday catalogue was the perfect finishing touch.

I have used the new Piece of Cake stamp set and coordinating Cake Builder punch from the upcoming 2019 Occasions catalogue. The cake stand is punched in gold foil and the cake is stamped in Versamark and gold emboss powder added and heat set. I then added some Wink of Stella over the flowers for a bit of sparkle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and added LIA using the large letter framelits dies in black card with a wash of Champagne Mist Shimmer paint applied with an AquaPainter.

Birthday, Kids Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Personalised masculine birthday card using Sweet Cupcake!

Hello Friends,

My project today is for a little boy turning 8! I am terrible with creating cards for boys as I don’t have any boys in my family, especially not at this age anyway! It was Joel’s birthday during the recent school holidays and he had a party at Timezone which my daughter was so excited about. This is the card I finally came up with!

The icing on this cupcake was meant to look like choc-mint and the cupcake represents the O in his name. I also embossed the card base with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF for some extra texture.

I stamped another cupcake and placed it inside the card with the sentiment from the same stamp set, Sweet Cupcake.

The reason I chose to use Lemon List Twist for the card base is because it matched the gift bag that we had put the present in!!!

Personalised Birthday Eclipse card with Painted Harvest

Hello Friends,

My Eclipse card today uses the Painted Harvest stamp set and Large Letters Framelits dies, with the following colour combination.

TAMS Color Builder - Soft Suede, Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie.jpgI made this card for one of my favourite teachers from my school days, whom I also ended up working with until her Retirement, Patsy.  She is such an amazing person who has so much to deal with but gets on with life, without any fuss. She was such an inspiration to me back in the 80s when she taught me Home Economics; cooking and sewing in Tasmania!

I still keep in touch with Patsy and every year I send her a card for her Birthday and Christmas. So here is her card for this year. I wish you all the best health and love today and always, Patsy. Happy Birthday!

The Eclipse card is a very popular technique at the moment and it works beautifully with this stamp set. The ribbon is retired but it was the perfect 1/4″ cotton ribbon in Pumpkin Pie to coordinate perfectly!
