Birthday Cards

Here's a seclection of birthday cards that I've made and sent over the last few weeks - I shall try to remember what I used on them!
The top one was made with a kit from Create and Craft (same one I used for one of the cards for my niece). I actually alternated the decoupaged elements and used parts 1, 3 and 4 on my niece's card and parts 2, 4 and 6 on this card. Some flowers and gems completed it.
The second card uses some Papermania paper (Henbury collection I think) and a Sarah Kay image coloured with Promarkers. I cut some butterflies from the paper and added them with 3D foam.
The last two cards were made using a Stampin' Up stamp coloured with Promarkers. A Craftwork Cards sentiment 'stem' and a piece of ribbon completed them both.

Cards for my niece

The top card was made using some papers and toppers from a magzine - a stamped sentiment and a touch of glossy accents on the 'buttons' finishes it off.
The second card was made from a Create and Craft kit with a Craftwork Cards round sentiment mounted on a scalloped circle cut and embossed with a nestie.

My Son's Birthday Cards

The top card was from his sister and used another LOTV image - anyone who knows my son would recognise him in this image, he could have posed for it! Some Stampin' Up paper, 2 small and 2 medium sized red brads and a Craftwork Cards sentiment completed it.
The second card was made using a FF A4 card kit, the only extra addition was the number 6 which was a stamped image stamped and embossed in silver and mounted using plain and scalloped circle nesties.

...for so many posts in one go - I was scheduling them to be shown one per day but Blogger doesn't seem to want to take any notice of the date and time I'm selecting...

Card for Son's school friend

This was made using a QVC kit - I made 4 or 5 cards along similar lines, most of which have been given to my son's school friends over the last few weeks (and I didn't take pictures of them all!)

Cards for DD's friends

These are a few cards that I've made over the last few months for my daughter's school friends. The top one has an image my Lily of the Valley, the second 'Best Friend' card uses a QVC kit and the last one I honestly can't remember where the image came from but it was coloured with Promarkers!

Birthday Cards

Here's an old one - my friend's birthday was in April! I really like this stamp set - it's sometimes hard to come across something amusing, I've got loads of cute images but sometimes a little humour is in order. I bought this stamp set with someone in mind but it's ideal for any girlie birthday as I'm sure most of us face this dilemma at some point! These stamps are by Inky Antics although I can't remember where I bought them as it's quite a while ago now! I kept the colours very minimal so as not to detract from the wording.
