Birthday Cards

My sister-in-laws will be celebrating their birthdays soon. Here are the two cards that I made for them!

This first one is based on the Friday Sketchers Challenge. After I finished it, I realized that I had forgotten one of the layers! Oops! Hope it is alright! I used this sweet image of Macbeth which is from Sugar Nellies' brand new line called Soft Centers. You can get him (and other cuties) at Funky Kits.

  • Stamps: Macbeth from Sugar Nellies Soft Centers
  • Ink: Stazon Jet Black
  • Paper: Daisy Bucket, SU! Navy
  • Coloring: Distress Inks
  • Embellies: Prima Flower, Dollar Store Charm, Hero Arts Buttons

For this one, I used the sketch from a challenge that I have wanting to participate in for a long time. It is called Stamp Something. I used my new Martha Stewart border punch. I was a bit worried since I just read that sometimes it doesn't work well with SU! cardstock, but I didn't have any problems! It works so well and I just love the detail it provides! I decided to cut out the faces of my WOJ stamps to do something a little different!

  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy, Sentiment from Stampin Up
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Daisy Bucket, SU! NAvy
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: SU! Taffeta Ribbon, Prima Flowers, Hero Arts Pearl, Hodge Podge Vanilla

    Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to know what you think!

    Tomorrow, I have some more exciting news to tell you. I have been bursting to spill the beans and now I only have to wait one more day! Stop by tomorrow to find out!
