Dragonfly Happy Birthday Card

I wanted to share with you this beautiful birthday card.  I love this dragonfly thinlit and I have had so much fun with it.  We made the background paper by scoring every 3/4" across the card and then turning it and doing the same.  Then you fold on the creases and use the sponge to sponge in the color.  The card looks very elegant in person with the gold foil dragonfly and the ribbon. 

Here is the recipe:
Tin of Cards (#138946 photopolymer) stamp set
Elegant Eggplant (#105126) and  Crumb Cake (#120953) card stock
Gold Foil Sheets (#132622)
Elegant Eggplant (#126969) stamp pad
Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Die (#142749) 
Simply Scorning Tool (#122334)
Stitched Shape Framelit Dies (#145372)
Ribbon- discontinued from Sale-A-Bration

For the background with the scored lines, score every3/4" one way and turn and do the other way.  Then fold down a little on the crease and sponge with elegant eggplant along the creases.  

Remember the hostess code for placing an order in April is #7G73S63.  Then you will receive the FREE card project (s) from me.

This card I created for my great niece Electa who just turned one yeasr old.  The theme of her birthday was Mini Mouse.  I made the mini mouse with punches.  I love finding new items to create with punch art.  They were using pink and not red, so I did use some discontinued designer paper because it was in pink and was too cute not to use.  She is a little cutie.  I have a picture of her in her high chair with her own birthday cake.  She wasn't too sure at first what to do with it.

Here is the recipe:

Popsicle Birthday Card

I really love our new Cool Treats stamp set in our Occasions catalog.  I have two favorites so far and this is one of them.  There are so many different designs to create with this stamp set.  Today I am sharing a popsicle happy birthday card with you. To get the look of a popsicle, I stamped off and then stamped on the card stock.  This gives you the lighter color to make it look like a popsicle.  I took the Wink of Stella Glitter brush to the lines in the popsicle and then on the pool party one I colored all over on the popsicle.  In person it really pops but I could not get it with the camera.
