Smooches Birthday Cake

(there's too many fun promos to list them all here)

Using up this fun Summer Smooches DSP to create a birthday cake embellishment. This is one of the birthday cards I'm creating to stockpile for upcoming May birthdays. The "Happy Birthday Wishes" from Petite Pairs fits perfectly on the Apothecary Accents framelit.
I hope that you have a great day!

Bright, Bold Hybrid Birthday

(there's too many fun promos to list them all here)

I case'd this card from SU's Bday Under Construction digital kit (which I love, BTW). I used My Digital Studio to create the More Mustard background and to create the "happy birthday" embellishment, cutting it out, adding a brad to one of the stars and dimensionalling it onto the front of card. Fast, easy, and cute!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Tea for Two Mother's Day

(there's too many fun promos to list them all here)

May is a month of birthdays along with Mother's Day for us. I've been trying to get a head start on some of these upcoming cards now and because the new catalog is just around the corner, I want to try and make want these cards from the supplies I have on hand...kind of my last "wahoo" with the 2012-13 supplies.
I punched filter paper colored with Calypso Coral reinker and alcohol, to create the paper flower embellishment.

A Smooches Spiral Pop-Up

                       (there's too many fun promos to list them all here)

My card share today wasn't planned. I had made a quick stop at Splitcoaststampers and out of curiosity checked out Monday's Technique Challenge which was " I Like to Move it, Move it", adding movement to your project, with a list of ideas.
One was a Surprise Pop-Up which piqued my interest. From there I googled pop-up cards and found a Spiral Pop-Up tutorial on Julie Davison's blog. Since I had a bunch of scrap card parts lying around, I tried out the spiral idea for fun and little by little this birthday card emerged. It's always kind of fun when a card just happens.
I'm needing some May birthday cards, so this will be a very fun card to give away! I love how it looks like a normal card on the outside, but when you open it up, (wham!) it's a bouncy garden scene.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
