Birthday cards

Good morning :)

Geesh we had a lot of rain and autumn defintely has arrived!
Time to stay inside and keep myself busy in my craftroom:)

I made two birthday cards and used one stamp set and the 
coordinating dies. It's funny to see how these cards turned 
out different. On my first card I used the stamps and on 
my second card the coordinating dies:

The first one is quite feminine:

But I think the second one is perfect 
for a masculine birthday card. 
The little silver garlands were a gift 
from my dear friend Ros

Thanks for stopping by; 
enjoy your day!

Lift Challenge #109

Good afternoon....

With more time and enough inspiration
 I made a few cards. The first one to 
share is based upon the Lift Challenge:

We're supposed to add a transparent
 part and stick to the sketch.

I used a flourish die in a soft shade of 
blue and added a strip of yellow gingham
 to add some contrast. 

The embossed background is simple.
 I used two embossingfolders with 
dots in different sizes.
The sentiment was placed 
on the inside of my card 
behind the mica sheet:

City Crafter #333

Good morning!

It's time for a new challenge
 at the City Crafter.  
 Marina picked the theme:
"Did I make you up?".
And asks us to feature something 
that may not really exist.
 For example:
 a mythological creature 
or a hidden element.


I went with something that 
does not really exist;
a smiling cloud and smiling stars:)

A card for a newborn with a modern twist:

I went with the wreath and a touch of copper:

heat embossed it with copper embossing powder.
