Birthday Girls & Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!  I have actually been making cards off and on, but I’m behind on posting them!  I will try to get a few more recent ones up soon.  I am getting ready to make some card kits today, but first I wanted to share a couple of cards I just finished this week.

There are two special young ladies in my life that have birthdays this week.  I just love this image and had a great time coloring it a little bit differently for each one.  The Doodlebug papers are just adorable and perfect for birthdays!  I used some DMC floss to make my own ‘flower’ behind the numbers – which are also a part of the Doodlebug paper pad.  The dresses have a little glimmer from my Wink of Stella pen.  Inside, they say “have a SWEET Birthday”.

Yes, yes, I know it is March…but I couldn’t post the Valentines when I made them because I didn’t want anyone to see them before they were delivered and then, well, you know…life! ūüôā ¬† The first three were for my nieces, the last one for my DH.

This Lawn Fawn set is called Bugs and Kisses – that’s also what the sentiment says inside! ¬†The designer paper is by Doodlebug, Inc. – called Love Bug. ¬†The glitter paper on all the cards is by DCWV and the silver by Recollections.

I have only made a few shaker cards before, this one also uses Lawn Fawn‘s Bugs and Kisses. ¬†The dies are My Favorite Things Die-Namics By the Letters. ¬†The “you” is from Winnie and Walter “The Big, The Bold and You” stamp set. ¬†I used a transparency and foam tape to add the heart sequins in, after I shaded the back layer with Tim Holtz’ Distress Inks.

Thank Who? – OWH Labor Day VCMP #2

Once you get started, who can make just one card? ¬†This challenge was to be inspired by OWH literally – use things on the card that start with the letters O-W and H! ¬†Well, like many of the others, I may have stretched it a little, but here’s what I have:

O – OWL and Orange

W – “Who”, and Wings

H – Harvest Colors
