I was inspired to create some different cards using the basic layout of yesterday’s card. I realized after I finished that none were birthday cards, but they were cards I’ll need sooner or later!
I haven’t had time to play much with my first Holiday catalog order, so I decided to break open a new set – Get Your Santa On. It has so many stamps and sayings, and it’s another photopolymer set, so it’s a little less expensive (always good when you’re addicted!). I colored the Santa suit with Blendabilities, and used another new Holiday catalog product – the Lucky Stars embossing folder – on one of the panels. I added a tiny bit of Encore Silver Metallic ink to the raised stars. I added ink to the Northern Flurry embossed snowflakes, too. Sadly, that just made them look like they had fallen through serious smog, so I used the debossed side of the card stock instead.
I flipped the orientation for this one, so it’s landscape instead of portrait. No reason – except I already had some strips of designer series paper cut, and they were only 4-1/2″ long. This is the little fox from Life’s Adventure. And I bought “What’s Up” just for the sentiment on this card. I just had a feeling I’d be using it a lot, especially in a scrapbook.
And, finally – a card for my little Miss Amelia, who will be arriving soon! I hope you know that almost all of my posts from now until I stop blogging will have something about grandkids. Well, just Miss A at first – how excited I am, how we can’t wait until we see her, how beautiful she is, bragging about something brilliant she’s done…that kind of thing.
Of course, I used the Lullaby designer series paper, Something for Baby stamp set and Baby’s First framelits. The sentiment is one of the Teeny Tiny Wishes, but I added the comma, because, well, because I had to. It’s a sickness. The circle behind the onesie and booties is one of the Project Life Little Moments card collection.
So – your turn! What will you design with this sketch? Feel free to send me pictures of your creations, and I’ll post them on future blogs!
Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.
