Seize the Birthday and Whimsy & Stars Studio Cards on Monday!

Hey, it’s Monday! Today I’d like to share some cards with you to hopefully brighten your day!

The first is a card that I’m sharing as one of my regularly scheduled posts for Whimsy & Stars Studio! I’ll have another Spring-themed card to share two weeks from today!

The digi featured on this card is “Cup of Kindness” and can be found at the Whimsy & Stars Studio etsy store, along with Mabelle’s February digi releases, “Birthday Ladybug” and “You Are A Star.”

I hope you enjoyed checking out the projects that my fellow Whimsy & Stars Studio DT members shared during our monthly blog hop on the 5th!

If you didn’t get a chance to hop with us, no worries! We feature the new digis at Whimsy & Stars Studio on the 5th of every month. I hope you’ll be able to join us for the next hop! And, don’t forget to stop by the Whimsy & Stars Studio store to check out all the super cute Spring-themed digis that Mabelle has for sale!

My second card for today is for the current Seize the Birthday challenge. Here’s my card:

The main image and sentiment are from “Birthday Owl” designed by 2 Cute Ink, which can be found at Lil’ Inker Designs. And here’s the sketch:

It’s the first time I’ve had the chance to play along with this challenge, and I’m looking forward to joining the challenge again next week to make a masculine birthday card with the sketch! For all the details on this challenge, just visit the Seize the Birthday blog!

Hope you have a wonderful week! I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Double Take Tuesday challenge at The Greeting Farm!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! 

Festive and Fun Cards (and a freebie)!

Hi, crafty friends! Just wanted to stop by today to share a couple of winter and holiday cards with you!

My first card features a freebie from the oh-so-adorable Whimsy and Stars Studio! This FREE tree digi made its debut today on the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog and is available for download until Monday, December 1 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time.

Because it’s a whimsical tree, I went with some not-so-traditional colors in my design. I colored the tree with Copics, and accented the berries and stars with Stickles. I also added some Stickles to make the funky turf in the flowerpot!

Other supplies: patterned paper (SEI Berry Melody), sentiment stamp (aMuse Studio), twine (Trendy Twine – Annie’s Paper Boutique), card stock (white, kraft – Papertrey Ink; Pool Party – Stampin’ Up), Copic markers, sewing machine, Stickles (Star Dust, Cotton Candy), Spellbinders Labels 25.
My second card features “Arctic Friends,” a new stamp set I picked up from Lil’ Inker Designs. It was so fun to color up, and I finally got to use some embellishments I’ve had for a while.
You can’t really see it in the picture, but I added Glossy Accents to the ice that the polar bear is sitting on. Some Stickles were added to the ice cream to make them sparkle.

Other supplies: patterned paper (Echo Park – Winter Wishes), chipboard accent (Crate Paper), twine (Trendy Twine – Annie’s Paper Boutique), ink (Tsukineko Brilliance Graphite Black, SU Night of Navy), brads, sewing machine, Spellbinders Labels 25, foam tape.

Well, that’s all for now! I’ll be back on Sunday with a new Christmas Card Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
