Happy Birthday Alex!

Today is James' cousin's birthday. James suggested using this Kenny K image as his cousin loves computer games. Usually with cards I will colour an image and then choose papers to match, but this time I did the opposite. I coloured him to match the background paper. Then cut circles from some scrap papers to match the background too. I have added a birthday sentiment inside using one of the Kid Quotes from Inkadinkado.

Happy Birthday Geran! and Happy Anniversary Treena and Bob!

Today is James' Auntie's birthday, and his parents anniversary, so I have two cards to share.

First is the card for his Auntie, I masked off an area in the middle of the card and then stamped a butterfly from the Just Chillin' set by Making Memories. When I removed the mask I added some faux stitching and stamped a sentiment from the Jungle Creatures set by Kanban.

For his parents anniversary card I used Derek and Deirdery Dunderton from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps. They were backed by some white card and a paper from the Oxford pad by Basic Grey, both of which were inked along the edges. I don't have an anniversary stamp and I didn't want to use an alphabet set so for the sentiment I used Family Greetings by Elzybells to create one.

CYDI? Challenge #36 - Anything But A Card

It's time for a new challenge at CYDI? This time we are wanting to see anything but a card. For my project I went with an altered box. First I covered it with a wood grain paper from the Vintage pad by Grace Taylor, and then distressed it. I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing paper, and sprinkled the gold EP over the top of the lid. I then added the image, which is Bingo Dress Form & Wings by LilyPink Designs. To finish I added some buttons from the Elzybells Chocolate Brownie collection.

Birthday Blooms

I missed blogging two birthday cards in the past week. They are now posted for when they should have been, so scroll down to check them out.

This card was made using a 12x12 paper by Teresa Collins. I didn't want to cover up the pretty flowers so I just backed it on some black glossy card, then added a peel off sticker sentiment with a couple of brads

Happy Birthday Frank!

Today is James' Granddad's birthday. I went with a book theme for his card using papers from the Oxford pad by Basic Grey and the Book Stack image from Bugaboo. The sentiment is from the Elzybells Hey Cupcake set.

CYDI? Challenge # 35 - Birthday Flowers

Although I did make two cards for the new CYDI? challenge and they were on the store blog in time, I am posting them late on my own blog. The new challenge is Birthday Flowers. 

My first card was made using Penelope by LilyPink Designs. She is backed on a paper from the Designstax pad by Papermania. I added some Dovecraft bunting and created a sentiment using a mix of chipboard letters and peel off stickers. When I had finished I realised that it didn't mention birthdays, which is why I made the second card.

For the second card I used Celebrate With Cake by A Creative Need. All I added was a sentiment. Both the image and sentiment are raised using foam pads.

Happy Birthday Gemma!

Today is James' cousins birthday. For her card I have used Happy Hour by Kenny K. I kept the card simple by just using a couple of pieces of card which matched the colours of her dress. The sentiment comes from the Jungle Creatures set by Kanban.

Purple sparkles

It's been a while sine I shared any nails, because I haven't been doing much art on them, and when I have I haven't taken any pictures. Yesterday I was in a nail art mood. I went with a really simple design and just did a gradient nail with a glitter polish over it. All the polishes used are by Barry M.
