Yesterday it was my dad’s birthday so I thought I’d share the card I made him with you. He’s a farmer so very rarely has time to rest so is unlikely to have spent his birthday like this. This image from A Good Man does remind me of how he used to look on beach holidays from when I was younger so hopefully he’ll remember this and enjoy his card too.
I coloured the image in Stampin’ Blends which are definitley one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! products as they make colouring a joy. The top line of the greeting comes from the same A Good Man set and the Happy Birthday comes from Perennial Birthday stamp set.
I finished the card off with three strips of the Blueberry Bushell Ribbon which I think highlights the stripes in the Come Sail Away Designer Paper. I also added some Blueberry Bushell Rhinnestones from the Noble Peacock collection.
Today I’m sharing another childrens birthday card, this time made with the Over the Moon stamp set. The background was a watercolour wash of Mint Macaron on the old watwercolour paper, having now used our new Fluid 100 watercolour paper I much prefer this as its blends so much smoother.
I stamped the cow in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin’ Blends before fussy cutting her out. Here’s a little close up of her:
I attached some linen thread around the base of the punched out balloon with Tear N Tape around the back. I then attached the thread to the cow using some more tape rolled into a ball, you could also use a glue dot here but I’m out of them at the moment.
To finish the card stamp Happy Birthday from Perennial Birthday across the bottom of the card in Rich Razzleberry.
Finished result a cute birthday card which I’m sure anyone would love.
Card Base: Half A4 sheet of cardstock measuring 14.9 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
Rich Razzleberry Matt: 14.4cm x 10cm
Watercolour Paper: 13.9cm x 9.5cm
With the Annual Catalogue entering its last few weeks its time to start saying goodbye to some products, while the offical retiring list won’t be released just yet we know we’ll be saying goodbye to the 2017-2019 In-Colours. This makes me very sad this year as this collection has been my very favourite In-Colour collection so fingers crossed Stampin’ Up! are bringing us an even better collection to replace them.
My three favourites of this collection were Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink so today’s card features all three and highlights how well they work together.
For the background of the card I used the Coutnry Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder with Whisper White, I cut this into three panels measuring 4cm x 9cm and mounted these onto panels of TRaquil Tide measuring 4.5cm x 9.5cm. The happy birthday greeting comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and I added a flower and leaves from the Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration set and cut them out with the co-ordinating Four seasons Framlits.
Which of the 2011-2019 In-Colours are you going to miss the most and what are you hoping to see in the new collection, I’d love to know?
Being from a town which is cycling mad I knew I had to get the Enjoy Life stamp set with the bicycle image. Pairing that with the Best Route DSP and I’ve created a birthday which I think would be suitable for any male cycle enthusiast.
I think the Happy Birthday sentiment from Perennial Birthday is the perfect match for this card as its not too feminine. I also added a little decoration to the inside of this card so I could use another sentiment from the set.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project, hopefully I’ll come up with more ideas for male birthday cards soon.
