Happy Birthday Dad

This card is for my dad's birthday. I just got this paper by My Mind's Eye and when I saw the sheet that had "Celebrate" in the corner I knew I wanted to make that my focus.  I layered it on some of my hoarded Sage Shadow paper. I then die cut a tag, stamped "Dad" and tied it on with some linen thread and Baker's twine. This is popped up on a piece of Kraft paper. Simple as that and very masculine. Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Tiny Tags (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Sage Shadow, My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello Road
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Linen thread, Baker's twine, TIny Tags die (PTI), dimensionals

31st Birthday

This week is my daughter's 31st birthday. This is the card that I made for her.  It's also for this week's iSpy sketch challenge and was supposed to be for the Cloud9 November blog hop.  I got so wrapped up in choosing the DSP that I didn't actually use any Wplus9 products. Oh well.

I used the PTI Paper Beads die to make all the sunbursts then just started piecing them on.  The circle image is popped up on dimensionals. Pretty straightforward - just a bit time consuming. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Birthday Vickie!

Cloud9 Blog Hop & DD28

Here is my card for the Cloud9 Blog Hop. I started out with more colors but it didn't work and I ended up with just the two.  I'm not even going to tell you how many times I stamped the different rows of Fair Isle Backgrounds until I got them lined up evenly. After I finally got that done I stamped the gingerbread man and layered him up with the Clear Cut Stackers: Pinking Squares and then popped him up with dimensionals on some fishtail flags. 

Edit: Even though I made this card yesterday it works pretty well for today's Dynamic Duos so I'm adding it to that as well :-)

I added a little button on the gingerbread man to make him stand out more.   Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Fair Isle Backgrounds (wplus9), Seasonal Patches & Season of Joy (SU!)
