Happy Birthday Cards

Hey Everyone,

Anna here this week from

Hope you had a great week-end! This week end was my nieces birthday and we spent pretty much all day Saturday at her party.  It was also my nephews birthday in California and he had a party on Saturday.  Since it was a "Birthday Week-end" for me- I figured I would share with you some Birthday Cards that I made.

A few weeks back I had a stamping session with a dear friend of mine.  (Hi Darlene!) These are only 4 of the 9 cards we made that day.  We each made 2 of each design with each one slightly different.  We did have fun just stamping all day. (I can't wait to do it again soon!!)

The stamped images are from Tim Holtz Blue Print Collection.  Let me just say---- LOVE LOVE LOVE them.  :)  I should  have purchased more designs.  (I suppose there is still time right?) {SMILE} The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. (The little "wish big" is from Papertrey Ink.) Paper Smooches is another stamp company that I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  :)  (Shhh,  I need to add more to my collection)  With great stamps and Tim Holtz distress inks and copic markers.  It just makes my heart go pitter patter.

Let me share some close up pictures with some details:
 I would have to say this one is my favorite.  I think the pink is what did me in.  :) The candle is stamped again on a separate paper, colored in and cut out.  I added it to the card front with foam dimensional. 

 This one above is a nice masculine card.  I don't know if you are like me and have a hard time with manly cards.  But I have the hardest time putting it together.  So I am really happy with this one.  ~The image was stamped an extra time on a separate paper, colored in with copic markers, then fussy cut out.  After you cut it out run the image through the big shot with an embossing folder.  Use your foam dimensional to adhere to card front.  

 This one is Stamped and colored in with copic markers.  Then I added Crystal Stickles to the bow for a little shimmer.

Another "Manly" card.  This one is colored in with copic markers.  The "Party" is stamped on a separate paper and then cut out.  Adhered to the card front with foam dimensional.   I added stickles for more dimension to the card.
