Since he’s a good sport and comes with me on some of my crafting stops, I’ve discovered that he likes Tim Holtz designs. So Tim helped me out with my birthday plans.
For the card, I covered a blank 5x7 card with a piece of “wood paper”. It’s actual wood veneer over cardboard. I picked it up at one of my favorite stores before they went out of business. I added strips of paper from the Tradewinds collection by DCWV to the top and the bottom.
I ran a piece of chipboard through my Cuttlebug using a Tim Holtz gear embossing folder. Went over that with Ranger Distressed Ink in black and Fresh Ink pigment ink in grey, leaving some of the chipboard exposed. Layered this onto more of the DCWV paper, alternating with black cardstock, and added some gear charms by Bead Landing. I stamped the car and sentiment ( both Tim ) onto scraps of the wood paper and tore the edges. Finished with some coordinating washi tapes.

The focal point of the card is a dimensional sticker from KandCo. It already had rhinestones so of course I added more.
I’m still not old enough to have a BFF with a 21 year old. Nope!

One of our nephews celebrates his birthday this Memorial Day weekend, so I decided I’d make him a Memorial Day themed card. It was also the perfect reason to use some washi tape I recently ordered from Pick Your Plum!
I grabbed some striped red white and blue paper from my stash along with some matching blue cardstock, and stamped cupcake on white cardstock w/ yellow ink. I stamped the cupcake again on a scrap piece of paper and cut out the bottom to make a mask. I sprayed the top of the cupcake w/ Elmer’s spray adhesive and “frosted” it with Recollections tinsel glitter.
Finished off with the rest of the rhinestones and baker’s twine.

I couldn’t resist this stack from Recollections at Michaels (and of course it was 40% off!) . I love the colors, patterns, and textures. Perfect for a birthday card I needed to make!
The pink background paper I had in my stash. The green floral panel is from the Habitat stack.

I made this birthday card using a new stack from DCWV called Serenity, a Grand Adhesions pack from K and Co called Engraved Garden, and die cuts from their Edamame collection.
The Serenity stack has coordinating florals and other patterns and some of the papers have foil accents. I used a large and small version of the same foral pattern for the background and center of the card.
The Grand Adhesions dimensional word stickers are all in one piece so they’re super simple to use. Peel. Stick. Done. The letters look a little brassy in this pic but they are a gorgeous metallic copper.
I layered the butterfly die cut using dimensional foam dots and embellished with self adhesive pearls. This was one of those cards where less was more so I actually kept embellishments to a minimum which is a challenge for me!

Time and birthdays wait for no lazy crafter however, so I have had a couple of birthday cards to make. I thought I took pictures of both but oops. I did make them using the same papers: Basic Grey’s Little Black Dress collection.
The two patterned papers are the different sides of a double sided paper. The stars are punched from glittered cardstock scraps in my stash ( I am focused on using up my scraps this year) and the swirly thingys are leftovers from my sticker stash.
I have a slight problem with clear $1 stamps. JoAnn’s, Michaels, and my soon to be closed ( waaah) local store Paper Zone, all carry them and let’s just say I’m an equal opportunity $1 stamp collector. This one is from Inkadinkado. I stamped the image on a scrap of paper from the card I forgot to photograph, and accented with glitter glue. The frame is from a pack of K and Co die cuts.

What’s sweeter than a birthday cake?! I fell in love ( of course) with these dimensional stickers in KandCo’s birthday collection. And I needed to make a birthday card. Win-win!
I already had the Abrianna scrapbook borders of theirs on hand. I went to my paper stash and chose a paper from DCWV’s “Indian Summer Collection”.
Tore the top of the the striped panel and mounted on a piece of blue cardstock, tore a strip of the blue to go across the middle and used one of the scrapbook borders on the bottom. Wrapped with a coordinating piece of grosgrain ribbon and finished with paper flowers, buttons, and self adhesive rhinestones.
Even though I thought the cake sticker was already cute, I added some adhesive pearl “frosting” dots! Now I want a cupcake.
