This is a special card I made for my youngest son on his 4th birthday this year.
I used Real Red and the retired colour Brilliant Blue to get Spidey’s bright colours. I found an image on the internet of Spiderman, then I printed it on Watercolour paper. I used my marker pens to colour in Spidey – really easy to do!
The sentiment is from the stamp set Grunge Rock, stamped in Real Red. The background is from the now retired Newsprint DSP – I thought the Newsprint well suited Spidey as he’s always in the headlines, lol!
Lastly I added one of my favourite sparkles – Gold Glow Smooch Spritz – which I hope you can see better on this picture:
A long, long time ago (well, it seems like it!), I was lucky to stamp Sharon’s Flight of the Butterfly stamp set. Sharon is one of my lovely team members and her cards are gorgeous! Thanks, Sharon!! Check out Sharon’s superb talent here.
Anyway, I stamped lots of butterflies and then waited for the right card to put them together. And this card is for my lovely cousin’s daughter, Brooklyn, who just turned 4. Brookie had a great birthday party last week and the kids all had a ball. And the best part? Seeing Brookie open her presents, wow, ALL the kids loved that part!
I love this colour combo – Elegant Eggplant and Pink Pirouette, it’s subtlely striking. And, I think, the Pretties Kit pearls are a classic girlie touch.
Don’t you think the sentiment is profound … if nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies? Wow.
It has been a quiet week on the card making front, I’m sorry. You’ll see why soon 🙂
This is a birthday card I made for an old friend’s son’s 4th birthday, whose party we went to today.
I honestly couldn’t put a ribbon on a little boy’s birthday card … it didn’t go with images of Batman or Spiderman!! I’ve used the colours Ballet Blue, Real Red and Basic Black for a more masculine card. The stamps I have used are from Birthday Best, Canvas background and the Level 1 Hostess stamp set, Party Punch. I’ve done lots of sponging on this card and paper piercing too! I hope you like it (and I hope the birthday boy liked it!).
Four years ago (Sunday) I remember my husband driving us to The SAN Hospital in the wee hours of the morning when I had contractions 4 mins apart and my husband had to stop for McDonalds on the way (!) … at 11.11am our daughter, Isabella, was born. I always remember the time because of Remembrance Day.
On Sunday it was the first year we didn’t have a party for Bella (both her brothers had parties this year, that was enough!), but it still felt like a party because my mother-in-law, brother and his wife and our next door neighbour and her daughter all visited at the same time. Everyone got to sing her ‘happy birthday’ and she got to blow out her candles on her ‘cupcake’ cake!
This is the birthday card I made for her (above) and the close up (below) …
In hindsight, I don’t think I should have put the butterflies on … but she loved it!
A little funny story too … when she opened her Uncle Mark & Aunty Nicole’s card she turned to Uncle Mark and said … ‘it’s so pretty … you made it?’ God love her! hehe!
