Birthday Balloons!


Hi everyone!  Just popping in to play along with this month's SFYTT:

I have a LOT of birthdays to celebrate from the end of April through June, so I thought I'd just make a batch of four cards, all the same.  I started with some old patterned paper by American Traditional Designs and added some coordinating cardstock.  To make the focal piece, I pulled out a rubber stamp I found at Goodwill a few years ago but hadn't ever used.  It's a Stampendous stamp from 1993 (!), inked with several different Memento colors.  I've been neglecting my rubber stamps for years, but I've been trying to dust them off- they can still be cute!  :)  The sentiment is Stampin' Up! (I'm not sure of the set though, as someone gave it to me).  I hand drew the balloon strings, and that's pretty much it!  You can see a close up below:


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day and are getting ready for a fabulous summer!

Happy Birthday Pardner!

Hi everyone!  It's been a hundred years since my last post, but I've been focusing most of my energy on my Etsy shop.  I just saw the sketch challenge at The Cat's Pajamas blog, and I thought I'd use it to make my brother's birthday card.  Here's the sketch:

I used some papers from the Birthday Bash collection by Imaginisce and the adorable outlaw penguins from TCP's "It's a Western Thing."  I colored my friends with Copics and added a little gray shadow to ground them:

My cousin's birthday is right around the corner, so I made a similar card with the same stamp and papers:

The inside sentiment reads "happy birthday, pardner!"  LOVE that!  :D  It's so hard (for me) to make masculine cards, but I think I did okay here.  I hope you get a kick out of these guys and thanks so much for stopping by!
