Seize the Birthday - Pink & Brown

Hello Friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this week we have the "Toppings" option of "Pink & Brown".  Remember it is an option and the only requirement is that it has to be for a birthday.
For my card I used the Botanical Builders Framelits dies from Stampin' Up for the flowers in Pink Pirouette, and leaves in Old Olive.  I added the centers in white and rhinestones.  The kraft DSP is from an older SU pad and I don't remember the name.  The sentiment from SU Perfectly Penned (retired) is embossed in white on black CS.

My fellow Design Team members at Seize the Birthday have created some fabulous cards.  I hope you will be inspired to play along.

Happy 25th Anniversary

Hello friends.  I haven't posted in awhile as I was really busy the last couple of weeks.  I was in charge of crafts during our Vacation Bible School at church last week and had to get things ready.  We had a really great turnout and all the kids enjoyed the crafts.

Today I am sharing a card I made for my daughter and son-in-law's 25th wedding anniversary.
I used MFT Tropical Teal CS and ink.  The background was made with SU Something Lacy and the teal ink (teal was the color in their wedding).  The die-cut panel is made with Spellbinders Floral Ovals and mounted with foam tape.  The flowers are SU Petite Petals and the leaves are SU Peaceful Petals and Pear Pizzazz ink.  I added rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.  The Happy Anniversary is an Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut from SU Brushed Silver CS and 25 is from Tim Holtz Vintage Market alphabet die.  I stamped the TH from SU Memorable Moments with silver ink.

She loved the card.

Seize the Birthday - "Bold and Bright"

Happy Thursday my friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of  "Bold and Bright".


I used some bold colors from a Recollections CS pack and the flowers and leaves are made with Lil' Inker Designs Perky Posies dies.  The layers are separated with foam tape and I added a rhinestone to the centers.  The orange scallop mat is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.   The happy birthday is cut with the MFT Free with $60 die (this month's free die).  I cut 4 white layers and then the DSP die and glued them together for dimension.   The white panel is embossed with an older Darice or Cuttlebug EF, not sure.  I added some irridescent sequins to finish my card.

Now check out all the fabulous cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Wedding Wishes

I am sharing a card I made for my daughter's friend.    It is 5"x7".  I used the Decorative Oval Die by Heartfelt Creations, the sentiment and die from SU Rose Wonder, and the leaves from SU Botanical Builder Framelits.  The rose is made from punches and I had it in my stash, I thought it matched the DSP, which is from a Heartfelt Creations pad.  I matted it in black and the card base is Coredinations Heavy White Card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy 4th of July and a Wedding Mini Album

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy 4th of July.  My prayer is that God will Bless America.

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land."    2 Chronicles 7:14 


Today, I am sharing a few photos of a mini album I made for a friend.  I enjoy making them and hope you enjoy taking a look.  

This is the cover.  The rose trim is from Hobby Lobby.  The hearts are a Martha Stewart punch and the title is a cutout from the  Recollections Bridal Bliss paper pad.  Most of the papers are from this pad.  I used several punches and dies throughout the album.  Let me know if you have any questions.









Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Seize the Birthday - Birds, Bees or Butterflies

Happy Thursday my friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings" option of using Birds, Bees or Butterflies on your birthday card.

I looked through my stamps for a bird, but ended up using these butterflies from SU Papillon Potpourri.  I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics to match the colors in the DSP.  I fussy cut them and added rhinestones to the bodies.  I added sparkle with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen.  You can see it better in the photo below.  Also, green and coral stripes in the DSP are glittered. (Very pretty IRL)  The DSP is from DCWV Mango Frost Mat Stack.  The sentiment is from a stamp I got at JoAnn's, but it doesn't have a name on it.  The sentiment is matted with a Spellbinders Lacey Square die cut.  The large scallop mat is cut with an MFT Blueprints 20 die and the card base is my favorite, Coordinations Heavy White Card.


You should check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I am sure you will be inspired and I hope you play along.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Little Bear for Seize the Birthday

Hello friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time it is "Anything Goes" for a birthday.  No "toppings" option this time.



I used this cute Little Bear Birthday digi image from Bugaboo Stamps.  I colored him with Promarkers and cut him out with a Pierced Circle die by MFT, and matted it with SU Lost Lagoon die cut with MFT Circle Stax 2 die.  All the mats are Lost Lagoon and the scallop mat is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.  The DSP is from SU Moonlight Paper Stack.

Be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will play along with us.

I am entering my card over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Animal Magic.
