Adding Texture to a Design

Hi All, it’s Amy here sharing a sweet birthday card!  I have to constantly remind myself to design birthday cards.  For some reason they just aren’t my go-to design.  Today’s card features Bday Bash and Bloom Builder.

I started off my card using a couple strips of paper from the Color Me 6×6.  Love the versatility of the black + white designs!

I used a bloom from Bloom Builder and topped it off with an enamel dot.  For added dimension I cut an oval yellow felt shape.  The cupcake from Bday Bash has been colored with alcohol markers.  I finished off my card with a sentiment from the same set, heat embossed in white on a black strip of cardstock.

I hope you’re having a sweet week!

Rainbow Inspired Card

Hi all, it’s Amy here with you today sharing some rainbow goodness.  I am slowly building a birthday card stash so that I don’t have to frantically design one at the last minute.  Are birthday cards something that you generally design?  For some reason they aren’t for me.  I like to think I scored bonus points for this gender neutral design:

Rainbows make me a happy crafter, how about you?  I started with a panel from the Robots 6×6 Paper Pad.  I adhered it to a red card base.  Truthfully I buy my card bases already cut/scored.

I inked up those sweet cupcakes from the Bday Bash Clear Stamp set.  I was inspired by my teamie Laurel and paper pieced their tops with papers from the Rainbows +Robots 6×6 Paper Pads.  Their cupcake liners and the party hat have been colored with alcohol markers.

I’d love to find out what are your go-to cards that you design?  I love ‘just because’ or ‘hello’.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Amy
