Birthday Legos for Seth!

My darling grandson turned 3 on Wednesday and he loves Legos! So, since I don't get to make boy cards often, this one was so much fun!  I used Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy and Gumball Green Green cardstock for the Legos, and Real Red and Basic Black for the layers and the number 3.  I just cut some random size rectangles and then punched out circles witht the 3/4" circle punch, sponged the edges with a darker shade of ink on each one and popped each one up with Dimensionals.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Itty Bitty Banners in Basic Black and cut it with the Itty Bitty Banners Framelits. I then went over the Legos and number with the Signo Gel Pen to give it more dimension.
Happy Birthday SETH!

Hoppy Birthday

I have been trying to use the Ronald McDonald Charity Set more this year, it hold a dear place in my heart.  These two little frogs (actually one comes in the set) were stamped in Old Olive and their squiggly things were stamped in Basic Gray.  I used the sentiment Happy Birthday from Sassy Sayings and colored a Basic Pearl with red PERMENANT marker and stuck it over the "a" in Happy and made it HOPPY! I then used one two of my FAVORITE Big Shot items, the Woodgrain embossing folder and the Scallop Edgelit die.

So Many Candles....

Had fun making this card for August card classes.  We used actual candles wrapped in Patio Party DSP!  We used the Scallop Rectangles die and cut out Summer Starfruit, stamped the sentiment from Bring on the Cake stamp set, and then ran them through the Fancy Fan embossing folder and sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie.  We then added another strip of Patio Party DSP to the left over some Midnight Muse cardstock.  Tied a bow with the White Taffeta ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.
