Happy birthday Kizziya

Today is the birthday of one of the princess’ school friends and yesterday after school they had a party. So of course I made a card. Kept it bright and cheery just like the lovely Kizziya! 

First I stamped the fun Woodware happy birthday stamp and heat embossed it then used lots of fun Distress oxides to give it a funky background.

Once it was dry I used peacock feathers to colour the letters in and give them more definition. Then I used lawn fawn stanps and dies for the square balloons. I stamped in the distress oxide and heat embossed it to give them a nice texture then added little strings before adding them to the card. 

So happy birthday Kizziya!

Making boy cards

A change of pace tonight and instead of atcs I have some cards to share. I am not the biggest fan of making cards for males… they don’t seem to appreciate pretty things like flowers and ribbons and bling! Grrrrrr… so I have instead resorted to robots and spaceships! 

A simple robot stamping experiment… and finished with a little doodling. 

And this is a repeat of the card I made back in early Feb for my cousins sons’ birthday. 

Pretty happy with these even if they are missing some bling !!! 

Happy crafting!

Happy birthday to Matt!

Yesterday we celebrated our good friend Matt’s 40th birthday. It had been his birthday a couple of weeks earlier but this was the first opportunity to get us all together.

Here is the card I made for him.

I used Lawn Fawn beep beep stamps and some keep calm stamps I got especially for the occasion.

I coloured in the little bots using a mixture of pens and metallic pencil.

We had a great time celebrating together… and as the youngest in the group I enjoyed calling him an old man many times! He he!

Happy crafting!
