Happy Thursday everyone!! I thought about posting these cards yesterday but decided to go with today (as my one friend won't be receiving her card until later today).
My first card is for my friend Shannon W. (who celebrated her birthday this past weekend). I went with Birthday Cake with Stella in it (I love this image but I don't own it yet...this image came from a swap that I was in a while back) and coloured it in with Copics and Tombows. I used my Top Notes die (SU!)and some patterned paper from the Citrus Matstack (DCWV) as my background. I popped those up over some barely banana cardstock and ribbon from SU! and ran the cardstock through my cuttlebug using my swiss dots folder (that has got to be my absolute favourite folder). I finished off the card with some stickles, glossy accents,and clear baubles (Stamping Bella).
My last card is for my friend Fabrizia (who celebrates her birthday this upcoming weekend). I inked up Happy "Bee" Day Huggabugg (Stamping Bella) with versafine ink in onyx black, embossed it (clear), and coloured it in with Copics and Tombows. I used my Top Notes die again and popped it up on certainly celery cardstock (SU!) and patterned paper (K&Company). I ran the cardstock through my cuttlebug using my swiss dots folder, added some certainly celery ribbon (SU!), clear baubles (Stamping Bella), stickles, and glossy accents to finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by to see my cards...I probably won't be posting any new cards until the beginning of next week as I have a busy weekend coming up (card class Friday night, spa day/sleepover at the Elm Hurst Inn with some of my family members on Saturday, and a family dinner on Sunday for my step-dad's birthday). Have a great Thursday and enjoy your weekend!!
