A Birthday Card with Birds

This is a card I made for a neighbor of mine.  She loves birds and I had played around with this idea of a card using this set of stamps from Stampin' Up.  I had even tried it out using a different color but This one turned out SO much better!  It's hard to see the detail in th card but the cage was stamped and embossed in silver on the card itself then stamped and embossed on a piece of acetate and cut out.  The little bird was cut out and glued on the cage on the card and then the acetate cage was glued over him to make it look like he was in the cage.  Silver thread was used to make the cage appear to be hanging.  The blue edging around the border of the card front was trimmed from a piece identical to the card front, only it was blue and I put Crystal Effects (a liquid that makes it raised and shiny for those that are unaware of what Crystal Effects is) over the blue edge.  All products used were Stampin' Up.
My neighbor was very happy with the card and I was both happy with the card and pleased that she was happy with it.

The Baby Blue Card In Pink

Here is the card I mentioned in my last post of the blue baby card, only this is the card in pink.  There are only a few subtle differences, such as the size of the dots in the background and there is a heart on the front of the onesie versus a turtle.  I personally liked the blue card better because of the smaller dots, this card was made using all Stampin' Up products.  It was also for a friend having a baby, but as you can guess, this was a girl!  Which do YOU like best?

Baby Blue Card

This is a card I made for a friend whose daughter was expecting a baby boy. The onesie is from a wheel by Stampin' Up, but I masked the image that was already on the wheel and added a tiny punch I had of a turtle.  Everything else is Stampin" Up but the stamp I used to make the dots in the background cardstock.  That was by Impression Obsession.  The card is small but is the perfect size for a gift enclosure.  I liked the card so much in blue I also made one in pink using all Stampin' Up products.  Which I will post later.  Hope you like this little card!!

Dolphin Birthday Card

This is a birthday card I made for a friend that loves dolphins!  I used Stampin' Up cardstock and Quickutz dies.  I'm not sure where the charm came from but the ribbon came from Micheals.

"Manly" card made during a girl's get-a-way

I made this card during a girl's get-a-way in Williamsburg, VA.  I used Papertrey stamps and Stampin' Up cardstock, ink and markers.  The little planes will spin around if you push them.  I really had fun making this card because it made me think about the mechanics to make it turn.  I'm very happy with the way it turned out!!  I hope you like it too!  The other girls and I had great time too!
