I made a few quick and easy birthday cards a few days ago using distress inks, stamps, dies and some sequins.
The color strokes are stamped using the stamp set “Color Wash” by Pink Paislee. The die is from Mama Elephant.
It’s been a quite crafty weekend I must admit. I made three cards using up a lot of time, as usual! I often find myself spending most of the time just figuring out what to do and what paper or stamp to use. This weekend I found a layout I liked a lot and thought would be fun to make a card of. It took me several hours to come up with something following the sketch! So while pondering I made two other cards, one of them for my brother as his birthday is tomorrow!
I’ll just write the challenges used above each card to make it a bit easier to read.
Seize the birthday – anything goes with the option to use washi, which I did not do. I did however get to use my new hexagon die jenandtricks got me from UK! <3
The paper used is a mixture of some scraps, don’t rememeber the brandexcept for the brown (Echo Park) and the glittery one (DCVW). I cut out the letters using my Memory Box alphabet dies, which I love!
For this card I was inspired by Mojo Monday #369 – layout, Passion for promarkers #271 – add some sparkle. I love promarkers #243 – three of a kind. Once I saw the sketch I got an idea for the card. The papers are from Basic Grey – Persimon and First Edition – New Leaf.
And for this happy card; Veckans skiss # 38 – layout. I colored the stamp from Some odd girl and messed with colors on the cardstock. Punched some red and pink hearts from my scraps and I even got to use my new pearl mists I found on a sale, woho!
