Birthday cards!!

Happy Sunday everyone!! Where did the weekend go?? It feels like it flew by so fast!! I have a couple of birthday cards that I made earlier this week that I want to share with you and a project that I made yesterday while attending a block class!!

The first card is one that I made for my niece...she just turned 14 this past week (where does the time go? I can still remember when she was just a baby)!! I stamped out an image for the You Take The Cake set and coloured it in with my Tombows. I added some glossy accents onto the polka dots on the dress and some stickles to the flames on the candles. I also used my label nestabilites and my swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder. The patterned paper is from the Bittersweet line by Basic Grey and the cardstock is from Papertrey Ink (White, Sweet Blush, and Dark Chocolate). I popped up the image and added some copper baubles from Stamping Bella to finish off the card.

The second card is one that I made for my was her birthday at the end of January but I didn't know about it until last week (sorry!! it's on my calendar now so I won't forget anymore)!! I pretty much followed the same method as the card above except I switched up the patterned paper (from the Urban Prairie line by Basis Grey)and the cardstock (White and Lemon Tart from Papertrey Ink). I again popped up the image, added some clear baubles from Stamping Bella, and some white ribbon that I had lying around. I'm pretty happy with how both of the cards turned out!!

I went to a block class yesterday at a LSS, Crop 'Til You Drop and thought I would share with you what we made. Lania, the talented instructor, came up with the idea for this block class...she's done block classes before but I've never attended them. I really liked the picture that I saw about this class and knew I had to attend it...I like that it's a decoration that can be kept out all winter long. Sorry about the angle of the picture (yes, I was lying down on the floor)'s the only way that I could see the blocks without showing you what was behind them on the counter (dish soap and cleaning products).

Thanks for stopping by...I'll be back later this week with more creations as I have a card class to attend on Tuesday and I'm hoping to make some Valentine's Day cards sometime this week!! Have a great night everybody!!

Hahaha, I love the angle that you took that block of cards from. So funny. I like the background paper of the second card too, and the image, even though I have seen it before is great. I like the no head style of it.

Hi Sarah!

I didn't make the connection til just now. I was checking out who my followers were and I didn't know you!? I checked out your blog and to my surprise and my delight I see my "Let it Snow" blocks! I'm glad you liked them. I didn't realize that you were really into cards! Good for you. Looks like you are very talented. Cheers!
