Twins’ 2nd Birthday – Big Bold Birthday

We went to a birthday party for a very old friend’s twins on the weekend (her third and fourth children!). The girls turned two and these were the cards I made for them, something similar but slightly different.

Can you tell that I love my Big Bold Birthday stamp set yet? It’s just fab! Anyway, I teamed it up with striped paper from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin’ kit (which will most likely retire at the end of March) as I just love the colour combo … Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi, Regal Rose and Bashful Blue. I added a bit of 1″ Rose Red double-stitched ribbon to divide the card, then some crystal effects and Dazzling Diamonds on the cupcake top and balloons. I stamped the “happy birthday” underneath the cupcake. And I used my Pretty in Pink marker to draw the balloon string.

This is the Regal Rose card with a felt flower added and a Pretties Kit rhinestone brad in the centre …

And this is the Pretty in Pink card with a felt flower added and a Fire red rhinestone brad in the centre …

Unfortunately, a drop of water must have fallen on the bottom of the “happy birthday” on this card … and I noticed as we were walking out the door (and I rushed to take these photos). I’m sad that it is a bit ruined! But I didn’t have time to recreate another card either 😦

Thanks for looking 🙂

Winter Brights Christmas card

Here are two Christmas cards I made for lovely friends, and they are cards made with no stamping!

On the first card, everything I have used comes from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin’ kit, except the Ice rhinestone brad, the white aluminum square metal edge tags and the Dazzling Diamonds!

On the second card, again, everything I have used comes from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin’ kit, except the Rose Red 1″ Double Stitched ribbon (from the Summer Mini), the Ice rhinestone brad, the white aluminum square metal edge tags and the Dazzling Diamonds!

It doesn’t show up well in the photos, but the Bashful Blue card base is textured cardstock (which I love!) and, naturally, this is also included in Winter Bright.  Don’t you love the colours?  I think they’re really fresh and festive.
