Happy Birthday Janice

This card is for my coworker. She's going through a lot right now so I sent an email to ask the whole team to bombard her with cards for her birthday. Her favorite color is teal so I tried to add as much in as possible. She has a dog and treats that dog like her child.


Supplies:
Papers: Neenah, Bazzill, SU night of Navy, DCWV Hippie, The Paper Studio, Recollections.
Stamps: Recollections, SU Garden Greetings
Accessories: Cuttlebug, SU happy die, homemade acrylic dots, bling.
Technique: paper piecing.

Happy Birthday Kim

I made this card for my friend Kim's birthday. I pinned this card on Pinterest, with the intention to use it as my inspiration for Kim's card. Then Kim pinned it shortly after. I knew it had to be at that point. The Christmas tree and the birthday hat were the same shape. I didn't make my center image as large as in this card though. Kim and I do that kind of thing a lot. We will text or talk and pretty much say the same things or if we are out shopping separately,  we'll often ask the other I'd they want this and it's the same thing. That's so weird when that happens. We joke that we're twins from other parents.

It felt strange to make a card and not have any restrictions. Just fun. The hard part, is that my craft room is near disaster stage and I kept losing my supplies. I set the paper pack down and couldn't find it for 15 minutes. That's just crazy.

I had to make the cupcake chocolate because that's my favorite and the cherry on top is a homemade acrylic dot.

Without the flash:


With the flash so you can see all the glitter in the papers and cupcake. In real life, it is more the colors in the card without the flash. It's very bright and cheerful.

Papers: Neenah, Bazzill, SU chocolate chip, The Paper Studio - Eat Cake.
Stamps: Fiskars, SU - Garden Greetings.
Accessories: Stickles (on cupcake), homemade acrylic dot, bling, Cricut, Celebrations cartridge.
Technique: inspiration card, paper piecing (cupcake).
