Birthday Cards I have created.....Enjoy!!!


I have posted some of my designs that I have sourced around the internet & stamp magazines. I have put my twist on it by using different stamps or techniques. I love my Stamping Up stamps & punches which have made the process of making cards this time much easier! Please note some stamps I have used have come from magazines or I have bought them from a craft shop! My designs are so they are flat for posting so I do not use a lot of embellishments or too many raised layers as all that work gets chewed up in the post!


Female Cards


Here is a card layout I design which I really pleased about how it cam together. I have used Stampin Up By the Tide set, Mixed Bunch set, plus the Blossom punch, Bitty Butterfly punch, the  leaves of the Bird Builder punch, to create this card. Also used a embossing die & a little spritzing to give a little sparkle!


       

 Here I used Stampin Up Baroque Motifs set.


        Stampin Up Baroque motifs set & fresh vintage set to create this card.

Stampin Up Baroque Motifs set. Here is a simple layout I came up with however I tried to find ways you could use glitter & the best way is to use your double sided tape then pour & press the glitter into the tape which then gives you sparkle highlights without taking over! So I am really happy about this technique! I have used Stampin Up Baroque set plus a Stamp It vertical stamp. 





Stampin Up Fresh Vintage stamp set. Here I have mix two layouts together that I came across on the web which I very pleased by it. So I have used Stampin Up Fresh Vintage & Faith in Nature sets. 



Stampin Up Fresh Vintage set. Here is a layout I found on the internet which I had a go. So I used Stampin Up Fresh Vintage set & Dotted Scallop boarder punch. Plus some inks & a embossing die to create this card.

Stampin Up Fresh Vintage set. I came across this one on the internet & gave it a go! I used Stampin Up Fresh Vintage set & a square punch to create this card.


This was a card I created using the stamps & cutting dies from a magazine. The magazine is called Australian Simply Cards issue 92. This was a little tricky to line up however I used a marker that for shiny surfaces & made a mark so it was easier to line each layer when stamping!


Here I found a layout on the web which used the embossing folder to create this card. I used Stampin Up Flower Shop set & Pansy punch. Plus the bird punch for the leaves. The words from Stampin Up Gifts of Kindness set. 



Here is a card I designed using a Fiskas boarder punch which I put a strip of glitter paper behind it! I also used Stampin Up modern label,small oval, decorative punch & words of kindness set ( retired set) & wetlands set! 




This is my go at making a 21st Birthday card which I used glittered paper, embossing die & some embellishments! The only bit with Stamping Up is the wording!



Here is a technique I found on the web however I was not clear on what they call it! SO I will call it Ink Quilting Effect, which you use a masking & daubing effect to create this card. My suggestion is do this slowly so you don't get confused & stick your pre cut squares sticky note paper which you use as a mask to make the space to daub into! I used Stampin Up large square punch & punch out the sticky end of the sticky note paper! My suggestion would be to only ink the bottom of each diagonal square & star a little way up first then stick your square over the top of it! Once you have done this then score along in a diagonal fashion so this can hide any missed lining up ink squares. I also used Stampin Up Flower shop, Baroque, Simply Sketched set & pansy, decorative punch. Oh make sure you mark out with a ruler or use your grid on your mat to get the spacing right!!


Here is a card I created with some paper I found in my stash & decided to use it! I used Stampin Up decorative label & pansy punches. The stamps are from Stamp It & Stampin Up Flower Shop set!! 


Here I found a layout on the web so here is my version of it!! I used Stampin Up  Simply Sketched set & coloured with water pencils. For the dots on the base card I used a dots stamp made by My Stamps to create the background.


Here I found this idea from the web which I then change a little to suit with what I had & so this is my version of it!! I use Stampin Up Wetlands set, plus water colour pencils to create this card!



Here I used Stampin Up Wood grain stamp to create this card.







Here I have created this card using Stampin Up Pocket Fun set which was given to my ladies at craft to use & keep. This is an retired set but it still a good one to have, I thought!!


Here I used Stampin Up Pocket fun set to create this card. Also a few punches, Stampin Up decorative, bird builder, blossom trio & a Martha Stewart butterfly trio punch! Here I was just playing around & trying to use up odd bits of paper!
