Spring Birthday With Tilda

I created this spring birthday card for a friend who celebrated her birthday this past Thursday.  The image I used is Summer Flower Tilda. 



I added a piece of lime green dot patterned card stock to a piece of white wash green gate card stock and then added it to a white card base.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in white wash green gate and white card stock. 

To create the flower I added a white glitter fabric daisy to a lime green paper flower and then added that to a white paper daisy.  I added a grass green rhinestone to the center.  I added a white feather behind the flower. I punched 3 branches out of white wash green gate card stock and added them in behind the flower. I added 3 rows of grass green rhinestones coming out from behind the feathers.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock, punched it out using a real estate punch, backed it in white wash green gate card stock and added 4 grass green rhinestones under the sentiment.  I punched 3 mini butterflies out of the white wash green gate card stock.  I added 1 to the sentiment, 1 to the image and 1 to the feather. I added stardust stickles to the butterflies, branches and to Tilda's wings.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Spring Birthday

I created this spring birthday card using Squishy Hugs stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I stamped the image on Spectrum Noir ultra smooth premium white card stock and colored it using Spectrum Noir pens. This was my first attempt at coloring on this type of card stock but I have to say I like it so much better. I just need to work a little more on my blending techniques.

To create my card I started with a 5" x 5" card base. I used the March sketch from Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.  I added a piece of green gingham patterned paper backed in tapioca card stock.  I cut four 2" squares from yellow and white dot patterned card stock and backed each one in white card stock. 


I cut the image out into a square and rounded the corners using a corner rounder punch.  I stamped the sentiment in the white space beside the image then backed it in tapioca and white card stock.

For the flower I layered a tiny yellow paper daisy onto two white fabric daisies. I added a green bubble gem to the center of the daisy and 3 more to the upper corner above the image and 3 more to the bottom corner below the image.

Tilda Lilac

I created this birthday card using Magnolia Stamps Tilda Lilac.

The sketch I used is from the current challenge at Cheerful Sketches (I rotated it).


The colors are from the challenge at Color Throwdown.


I started with a 5" x 5" card base.  I used 2 patterned papers....lavender rosebud and purple diamond plaid.  I also used white, lavender and lily pond card stock.  The flower is created by layering a small light purple paper daisy onto a purple paper flower and then I added those to a slightly larger white paper daisy and added a light purple gem to the center.  I punched 2 leaves out of lily pond card stock and added them "peaking" out from under the flowers.  For the strip across the bottom I layered a strip of lavender rosebud patterned paper that I backed in white card stock onto a piece of lavender card stock. I punched across the bottom using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added a white satin ribbon and a sheer orchid dot ribbon.  I also added a bow made out of the sheer ribbon.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in lavender card stock.  I added stardust stickles to the bottom of her dress.  I punched 3 tiny butterflies out of purple paper and added stardust stickles to them.  To finish the card I added 3 light purple gems to the upper corner of the lavender rosebud paper.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and backed it in lavender card stock.  I then added it to a piece of purple diamond plaid patterned paper that I backed in white and lavender card stock.  I added this to the inside of my card.

Squishy Hugs

I just love this new stamp set (Squishy Hugs) from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I received my set this weekend. I inked it up and created this birthday card.  The sketch I used is the March sketch from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge.

 

I used the color challenge (pink, brown and turquoise) from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge.  I started with a brown (carob) card base.  I added a piece of turquoise card stock backed in white card stock.  I cut 4 pieces of pink plaid patterned paper. I backed each in brown (carob) and white card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens. I cut part of the image out in a circle, backed it in brown (carob) card stock and cut around it using scallop scissors.  I layered a turquoise paper flower onto a white paper flower and added it to the bottom corner of the image.  I added a light pink gem in the center of the flower and 3 in both of the blocks of plaid paper at the top of the card. I stamped the sentiment "happy birthday to you" in the bottom block of  plaid paper. Here is my finished card....
