Let's Celebrate YOU

Here is a quick birthday card I made for my daughter's friend, who is turning 9. I used MFT PI Birthday Girl for the image and sentiment and paper pieced her dress. I used the sketch below for inspiration. This one was fun with all of the rounded corners.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Kelly

Thanks Bunches

I'm back to making cards again and actually posting them. These past few months have been busy and while I have made a few cards, few have made it to the blog! Today is for the inspiration challenge at SCS, which was to be inspired by a high fashion site. The background paper here for the mouse (who I am sure you would agree is not high fashion) is a Simplicity pattern. I have memories of those patterns down in our den where my Mom would sew. The mouse is colored with copics and the shirt is paper pieced. The sketch is from the monthly fan club at SCS.
The image is MFT Blessed Mouse. The paper is Stampin Up River Rock and Groovy Guava. The sentiment is stamped on a banner cut with MFT Die-namics. Designer paper is Fancy Pants Hopscotch.
Thanks so much for looking.

Happy Birthday Danny!

I'm a few days late for my nephew's birthday but I'm sure he won't mind when he sees this cool card I made to celebrate his 10th birthday. I let the MFT Die-namics do the work for me here, creating a jersey with his name and age on the back. The MFT Jersey stamp set was so perfectly designed for this. So cool! I added a background of embossed chevron stripes to give a little texture and contrast for the white jersey. The banner strip is a die-cut too. as well as the sentiment strip.

Happy Birthday Joseph!

My daughter is going to her friend's birthday party this afternoon, which happens to be a Lego themed party. I looked up some ideas on Pinterest and came up with this card for him. This came together pretty quickly once I starting putting the pieces together. I think any card I do that doesn't require coloring with Copics is quick and easy! Anyway, super cute card for a young man turning 7. Happy Birthday Joseph!

Happy Happy Happy

Had a little time this morning on this rainy day to make a card for today's color challenge at Splitcoast. There were several choices of color groups so I picked a group of pinks and greens. I also made this card for yesterday's technique challenge which was cluster stamping. The idea is to use the negative of a die cut and stamp using smaller repeating patterns within this space. I chose these favorite flowers of mine from SU Flower Factory and combined the pinks with the double stamping. I then used two different shades of green for accents.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

This card just screams happy and I love it! I made this for the MFT sketch challenge this week and took advantage of a fun sketch to make a bright, cheery birthday card for my nephew. 

The background yellow is stamped with diagonal lines - love that background stamp from MFT. I cut the circle out and backed it up with white to make the lines stand out. The numbers are from PTI and are a little big for the circle, but I think it just adds to the fun! I added some stars cut out with MFT Die-namics and that finished the card. I really debated a sentiment on this one but was afraid to ruin the card once I finished it! I'm pretty sure my nephew will know its a birthday card :)

Thanks so much for looking! Kelly

Let's Celebrate (SSSC262)

Here is a birthday card I made for Karen's sketch challenge, Sweet Sunday Sketch 262. I chose this birthday girl from MFT and paper pieced her dress to match the coordinating papers in the back. I needed to add to my stash of birthday cards, especially girly ones so this is a perfect addition.
I sewed the panels with a sewing machine and colored the image with Copics. The sentiment should read "Let's Celebrate YOU" but the end of it didn't fit and this revised sentiment was perfect too!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
