Blooming Birthday Card

AHS-237-Barb-Derksen

I found myself inspired by this week’s Atlantic Hearts Stamp Challenge #237

I literally found this sketch was EXACTLY what I wanted to express as I’ve had this Sweet William's Strip die cut by cheerylynn deisgns sitting in a box for far too long and decided to employ it for this card.  I used designer paper from Kristin Cronin Barrow’s Boho Chic 12 x 12 pack and a sentiment by Your Next Stamp – layering it all and popping sweet sequins and gems in by Pretty Pink Posh.  I also used some Simon Says stitched die cuts.  This card was easily made, just lots of building on the florals.

Pretty Layered Birthday Card

YNS-76---Barb-Derksen

Inspired by this week’s Your Next Stamp Challenge #76 this card was built in my mind before I even got to my craft area.

I have this lovely paper pack “Love Story” by Kristin Cronin Barrow which I wish you could feel because besides being lovely to look at, has all sorts of fabulous textures!  I just chose two co-ordinating patterns and then did all kinds of layering up.  I started with a cream base layer on cream cardstock which I ran through my cuttlebug inside patterend embossing folder.  I die cut the two patterened layers, backing one with a complementary cardstock.  I created this tag using a Spellbinders Shapeablilties set, cutting it out of  both the patterned paper and also plain cardstock.  Of course I stamped my birthday sentiment beforehand, a Your Favorite Stamp sentiment!  Lastly I drew this rich, thick ribbon through the slots.  I helped some layers stand out with the help of foam tape.  The final touches were various glimmery shimmery sequins and jewels from Simon Says and Pretty Pink Posh.
