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 bases...it'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.

Since I see a comment dated this month, I'll go ahead and comment. I've been trying to reconnect with some of my very first favorite blogs. I am shamefully behind in blog hopping and commenting. But I see it's been awhile since you posted. Hope all is well. Did you change blog sites. Loved your artwork, so I hope there will be more.
