Pink Birthday Cards

Good Morning Everyone!

I have a couple of pink birthday cards to share with you today… 2 the same but slightly different πŸ˜‰

I have challenged myself to use the craft supplies that I have and not to buy any new things for a year… apart from the essential adhesives. Β  Β  I did it a few years back and I am sure I will be able to do it again πŸ™‚ wish me luck!

I used butterflies from my stash to feature as the focal point of the card.. one had a backer and the other didn’t hence the same but different cards πŸ™‚

I painted them using 2 different paints, the back being Paperartsy blush and the top filigree layer using silver starlight paint.

birthday 2

Supplies List:-

  • Heavyweight white cardstock from Ross Papercraft for the base
  • Recollections 12 x 12 patterned paper
  • Silver textured cardstock
  • Lil Inker Stitched Square Dies
  • Clearly Besotted happy + birthday dies
  • Zig Glue Pen
  • Sellotape double sided tape

The card below does not have the backing to the butterfly like the card above and it glued directly onto the card.

birthday card

I hope you enjoyed today’s card… it is amazing what you can make by using what you have in your current supplies… Β it is so tempting to spend money and buy all the latest releases isn’t it πŸ™‚

Here is the video of how I made the cards today πŸ™‚

One of these cards was made for a an order and the other card will be available in my etsy store www.etsy.com/shop/seafoamblueΒ (now sold) thank you Gina xx

As always thank you for popping round

Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday to you all!

The weather here today is absolutely miserable, it is a right old Winnie the Pooh day… blustery & wet

I have another Christmas card to share today, it is clean and simple and easy to mass produce, it’s mainly die cutting and assembling.

  • Thick White cardstock card size is 5″x 5″
  • cuttlebug
  • Dienamics Star Stax Dies
  • Lil inker Designs Stitched Square Frames Die Set
  • Glitter Cardstock
  • and the Merry & Bright sentiment stamp from the Clearly Besotted Set the Scene stamp set

  • Stampin up Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set
  • Simon Says Stamp Cardstock from the Rainbow Pack for the Base
  • Pink Bazill Textured Cardstock
