Another Birthday Card

Happy Birthday

Another simple card, appropriate for a father, son or male friend. I'm not sure on the green colored paper but it goes with the SU Designer paper. There are two gold brads on the right side of the greeting. The Happy Birthday piece is popped up on dimensionals. This would be easy to duplicate in different colors and different embellishments. Make it more feminine and give to a female. Enjoy!

A Valentine

Be my Valentine

A simple valentine card.
The base is white, the ink color is red. The stamp is from the Extreme Elements set from SU. The large heart is punched out and the edges sponged with a brown ink. The small red heart is punched out of red textured paper. There is a twine bow and a rhinestone glued on the red heart.

Again, the inside decoration adds so much to the card. I have to do this more often. (This card was also made at the buffet card class that Dawn Olchefske offers once a month at her home. )

A Mother's Day Card

For my wonderful mother

The card next to the base is embossed with the embossing folder, tulips, I think. The base is stamped with the doily background stamp, the flower stamp and the greeting. There are the three pearls at the top right on the card. The base is vanilla. I think this is a very pretty card for Mother's Day and it was pretty simple.

Get Well

Get Well Soon

I like this card, again it is simple but it is different too. I used the embossing folder from SU to make the oval, then sponged some brown color on the raised portion. Before that I stamped the flowers on the base. I colored the stamp with markers and stamped twice. After finishing the oval sponging I stamped the get well on a piece of off-white or vanilla paper and then used the large oval punch to punch it out. I stuck the get well oval over the base oval. The ribbon is the quilted cherry cobbler.

Inside the card. I stamped the image a little to low so you have to watch that, but I like the look of it. The stamp is from the Holiday Mini catalog from SU, a valentine set. I hope they put it in the new catalog this year.

You Rock!

Happy Birthday!

This is a great card for a teenage boy. I used pacific point, more mustard, and white. This is another card I made at a class. I love the texture and all the cool added elements that are just paper! (stamped circles)

Another simple cool card!

So Simple You Will Love it!

Happy Birthday

This card is so simple you can make a ton of them. It would be great with some more masculine paper for a guy or son. It uses the kraft paper with soft suede paper and ribbon. The patterned paper is designer paper from SU and it is in strips glued on top of each other. I like the added paper design inside the card.

A Birthday Card

Celebrate Today

I made this card at a class given by my friend and former upline in Stampin' Up!, Dawn Olchefske. She has a card buffet class once a month. I go to this class and get to make 8 cards for the class fee. Extra cards are available to make if you want to purchase extras. It is fun and I like getting to choose what cards I want to make. My friend Kathy and I go together so it is also a "girls night out."  I am not quite sure on all the recipe ingredients but I can give you some ideas:
I believe the blue is pacific point, the designer paper is from SU, the ribbon is the new quilted ribbon in the Holiday Mini. The base is white. I think the red is cherry cobbler. Enjoy!
