Birthday Cards – Another Twofer

Here are the other two cards I made during some play time this past weekend!

~Card # 1 Purple Flowers~


For this card I used a top folding piece of Lavender Lace cardstock and a 4 1/8″ by 5 3/8″ piece of thick vellum. First thing I did was use a circle die from MFT to cut out a circle from the vellum. I put the panel minus the circle into a Tim Holtz Notebook embossing folder. Used a 1/8″ hole punch to attach the vellum with ribbon to the card front. For the circle I die cut out I stamped some flowers from Heartfelt Thanks stamp set from Stampin’ Up! The ink colors used were Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac, Certainly Celery, and Garden Green – all from SU! I carefully laid the circle back in and put adhesive behind the flowers to secure it there!

~This card is off to play in these challenges~

~Card # 2 Blinged out Cupcake~


Started with a simple white card front , added a Swimming Pool doily from Doodlebug. On scraps of card stock I stamped with Black StazOn ink the cupcake top, candle and cupcake liner from Treat Yourself – an older  Stampin’ Up! set. I colored them in with my”Ziggy“s – cut them out, added bling, Paper Studio gems, for sprinkles and put the images on with foam squares .
