Fun Fast Birthdays

These are 2 of my favorite types of cards ~ clean, simple image/layout on 4 1/4" white card bases. My sister just ordered this Fun & Fast Notes set from SU and she was nice enough to let me borrow it and stamp a few images. There is a stamp for every occasion and they're all adorable! As the name implies, it's perfect for quick cards and she mounted the images and sentiments separatly which makes it even more versatile. I made these two birthday cards this week, one for a guy and the other for a girl.
My guy card features real red and ballet blue. A little added Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds really makes this little cake pop ;) ! I used Copic markers (R29, B31 & 34) to add a little color to the cake. The sentiment is punched out with the word window punch.

My girl card features textured Melon Mambo & Regal Rose. I used Copic R29, R81 & R83 for a splash of color and Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds again for the finishing touches. I really, really like PaperTrey's premium white cardstock to use as white card's crisp, white & nice and sturdy! I used the Scallop edge Punch and word window punch, along with 3 Kaiser self-adhesive rhinestones for a little extra sparkle :) !
That's all for now. We're having a wonderfultime in the Seattle area visiting family :) ... getting ready to shower and head to church! Enjoy your day, thanks for stopping by.

Divine Design September

It's September 9th ... time to post our Divine Design projects for this month. I've been making bookmarks but this month decided to make a card instead.
I chose the verse from Romans 12:12 - "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction , faithful in prayer." This little verse is important to me because it focuses on three areas I want to grown in. Having this card out on my desk will give me the opportunity to see this scripture several times each day.

Be sure to check out Lori, Angel, Taylor & Jami's projects too! And when you upload to SCS, use the words BVC09

I have to apologize for not posting a Divine Design project for August. This challege came during finals week and I was just too buried in school work to even think about stamping. I really enjoyed making today's project. Stamping with scriptures is always extra fun :) !

For today's card I used a retired SU set called Elegant Expressions for the verse and a newer SU set called Thoughts and Prayers for the flowers. I colored the stamp with SU markers (Old Olive, Pumpkin and Ruby Red) then shimmered 'em with Spica glitter pens. The shiny finishng touch was Crystal Effects in the centers of the flowers. The cardstock is PT white, Old Olive & Ruby Red and that beautiful Olive ribbon is from the new Holiday Mini Catalog. I ran some Olive cardstock through an embossing folder then punched out the Photo Corners.

Thanks for stopping by :) .... I hope you're playing along with Divine Design. Remember, you can start anytime, the rules are simple and you can find all the details right HERE.
