Two Birthday Cards



I've got two birthday cards to share today.  My first card is inspired by the Make it Monday #221: Masking Sentiment technique and uses the colors from ColourQ #304.


I stamped a birthday sentiment from PTI Stylish Sentiments: Birthday and then masked it while I stamped a background pattern all over the card using images from PTI Friends Till the End.  My inks were Hero Arts Charcoal and WPlus9 Gala Red, Lake House and Hayride.

I am also linking this card up at AAA #36 Maskerade and Casual Fridays #142 Pretty Patterns.






I came across a really cute stamp set (Impression Obsession Birthday Cakes) that was buried deep in my stash, and decided to pull it out and make a quick CAS birthday card.


I added a bit of color with Prisma Color pencils and Stickles.  There are so many cute images in this set that I want to use in the future.  I am going to keep this set in a more convenient location.  I am entering this card at Simply Create Too #92 Anything Goes and Seize the Birthday, no toppings.




Thanks for Visiting

  8. Love your masked card and we both had the same idea in mind of playing with colour q colors. What a fun find of the drink stamp, with candles and cupcakes. Cant wait to see what else you make with it.

  14. Your first card is a floral-and-sentiment-masked marvel! Talk about striking! As for your second, who wouldn't want a drinkie-poo (or three) on their birthday! Fabulous that you found that stamp and give it star billing on your card! The candle stir-stick = fantastic!
