Buddy with NBUS Happy

Happy Monday everyone. Today I am sharing a CAS birthday card created for my sweet crafty friend Nancy. Her birthday is today! Unfortunately, I didn’t send it early enough and she did not get this before leaving on her trip… so surprise, Nancy! Hope you’re enjoying your birthday getaway. For her card, I brought back my favourite Buddy image and paired him with a NBUS happy die. Love these triple layer word dies.

 

 

An A2 size stitched rectangle was die cut from X-press It paper. Buddy was stamped with Memento black ink then coloured and shaded with cool gray Copic markers.

 

 

The word happy and first layer were die cut from white cardstock. The happy word diecut was placed back into the negative piece to make it easier to colour it with a mini blending tool and distress inks.

 

 

The bottom happy layer was die cut from black cardstock and another happy word was die cut from white cardstock to be stacked. Birthday was white heat embossed on a scrap of black cardstock. The stitched panel was mounted to a top folding card base before the sentiments were adhered. Clear shimmer on the pastel coloured happy finished the card.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

Tickled Pink Birthday

Hi there.  I’m just dropping in quickly to share a CAS birthday card I created today.  I have several coming up. And with AAA Cards challenge #98 Creatures Great and Small, I took the opportunity to use a NBUS summer set I recently bought.  Trying to savour the last bit if summer. 😆

 

 

 

 

 

I guess someone should have told this flamingo not to drink and rollerskate. 😂  The flamingo and sentiment were stamped with Memento black ink on a white stitched rectangle die cut from Neenah cardstock.

 

 

Masking, distress inks, a Radiating Rays stencil and a mini blending tool were used to create this mini boardwalk scene. i have a little confession.  Initially I created a sandy beach scene and then realized you can’t rollerskate on sand!  😂  Wasn’t even thinking.

 

 

The flamingo was coloured with Copics and a few motion lines were drawn in with a Copic multiliner.  The panel was mounted to a white top folding card base with foam tape.  Clear shimmer was added to the rays to finish.

As I mentioned, it’s a quick one. 😂  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Buds Birthday

Hello there.  I am sharing a CAS birthday card I created for my friend Christine.  I was going to give her one of the birthday cards in my stash, but I really wanted to use my NBUS Best Buds stamp set.  She only received it today, so I couldn’t post until now

 

 

All images were stamped with Memento black ink on a Wonky Stitched X-Press It rectangle panel.  The wavy streamer and sentiment were stamped first then masked.  Next the floral image was stamped and masked.  Then the bottom of the panel was masked before Mustard Seed distress ink was added with a Clarity brush for the background.

 

 

The images were coloured with Copics and the panel was mounted with foam tape to a white top folding card base.  Clear shimmer on the flowers and a few clear sequins finished off the card.

Butterfly Beautiful Birthday

Hi there.  I am sharing a CAS birthday card today..  It was really quick to make since most of the pieces were from snippets I already had.

A few Sundays back, I had a craftydate with friends (Loll, Christine and Susan) and we did smooshing with tissue paper and Distress Oxide (DOx) inks.  I came home with seven different pieces.  The Wilted Violet / Cracked Pistachio one was used here.  It was glued to a scrap of white cardstock and then die cut with a NBUS hexagon die.

The hexagon die was then used to die cut on a white Stitched Rectangle snippet panel.  For dimension, the hexagons were also die cut from black cardstock and stacked for dimensional inlay diecutting.  The sentiment was black heat embossed.

The outline butterfly was attached to the solid butterfly only in the centre to allow the wings to move freely for a 3-D effect.  The butterflies were also snippets. And that finishes the card.

Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!
