Hello!! April is a big birthday month in our family! My sister, step-daughter, and sister-in-law, all have birthdays on the same day in addition to about 5 others throughout the month. Newton’s Nook has the perfect challenge for me right now, as I have a lot of birthday cards to make! It’s called the Birthday Theme Challenge! They released a new stamp set this month called Holding Happiness! I love the set with balloons, gifts, and a cake, with the sentiment Big Wishes. This is a great set for cardmaking!!! Here is my card for the challenge:
I had this cute paper from Echo Park, called Birthday Gifts, so I thought it would be a perfect pairing. I colored the stamp using my Copics, RV14, Y06, B12, E00, and E01. Hope you enjoy my card for today! Make sure you check out the blog, there is lots of inspiration from the Design Team and the contest entries there. Have a great day! “Be Good!” Debbie
Hi! I am here with a card to join in the first ever Pinkfresh Studio Monthly Challenge! I recently found Pinkfresh Studio and love their stamps and dies!! Their first challenge is to make a card or scrapbook layout inspired from their chosen color combination.
And here is the card that I chose to make:
I used the Pinkfresh Houseplants die. I cut it first out of green paper, and then the 2 pinks that I chose. For the leaves on the left, I used my Copic markers, RV06 and R39 to color over the green leaves. (I was trying to make them look like coleus leaves) For the other leaves I sponged a darker green on them to give them some variation in color. I cut the vases from the pink papers and glued them in place over the green ones. I used dimensional adhesive to pop out the leaves on the plants. The thank you sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly. I highly recommend that you check out Pinkfresh Studio for lots of great stamps and dies! And check out their blog for lots of inspiration! “Be Good!” Debbie
Hi everyone! This cute little leprechaun and I have come to say Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I love Mama Elephant dies, and this card uses bits of two of them. At Christmas I used the Favor Bag Accessory Santa/Elf and thought at the time, it would make a great leprechaun too! Thankfully, I remembered when it came time to make my St Patrick’s Day cards. The bow tie and hat are from the Snow/Deer Favor Bag Accessory sets. I used a shamrock die from Impression Obsession and a sentiment that I had in my stash. I think he is adorable!!! Wishing you the luck of the Irish today! Happy St Patrick’s Day! “Be Good!” Debbie
Another year is coming to an end! I like to review my favorite cards for each year, and here are this years favorites:
Most of these are covered in some of my other blog posts, but if you see one that you would like to know how I made it, please leave a comment! Wishing everyone a blessed New Year!! “Be Good!” Debbie
