Birthday Cards

My nephew is turning two in early March. He just loves his dinosaurs. I used a Whipper Snapper Design stamp for the Dinosaur and some DSP from Papertrey.

At SU Regionals, one of the demonstrators showed us how to make a pop-up card. I have always wanted to know how to make one of these and didn't realize how easy it was. I made this gift ensemble for my dear friend Nisan's birthday.

Inside of the pop-up card. Enjoy and aloha!

Swap card for SU Regionals

SU is having their Regionals here in Honolulu on the 21st of this month and I can't wait! It is going to be stamping all day! How fun is that! So, I made 40 of these swaps to swap with people. I am so nervous...afraid to be rejected by my fellow swappers, lol.

So I made this card using my new favorite, 5th Avenue Floral Stamp Set, Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Regal Rose ink. Also used my new eyelet border. Hope people will want to swap with me, lol!

more birthday cards!

This Tilda is for Joy's 21st birthday, which was on the 7th. Her favorite color is purple, so I tried to incorporate that into the color scheme.

This Anya Geisha was for Enjoli's birthday, which was on the 4th. Her favorite color is green, so I used a designer paper that had some green in it and paper pieced the geisha's kimono.
