Happy, Happy Birthday to my Sister!

My sister celebrated a birthday this week, and it was a very special birthday. The big 4-0. This was a great reason to create a fun birthday card!!

CTMH: Balloon Ride {inspired by Jen Del Muro}

Starting with a white card base, I added two layers of B&T Duos™ from the Balloon Ride Paper Packet.  The Cashmere Cardstock gets it’s shape from the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge. The Chocolate Cardstock gets it’s texture from the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder.

Now let’s talk stamp sets!! If you look closely at the top half of the Cashmere Cardstock you will notice I used the Distressed Backgrounds Stamp Set in second generation Cashmere Exclusive Ink™. The sentiment is from the Belated Birthday Stamp Set in Cashmere Exclusive Ink™.  And those chevrons {who doesn’t love chevrons?!?!} are stamped in Sorbet Exclusive Ink™ on White Daisy Cardstock using the Charming Chevrons Stamp Set. For finishing touches I added a bow of Chocolate Baker’s Twine. {Card inspired by this card from Jen Del Muro}

I hope my sister had a very, very special birthday. I love and appreciate her more than she could ever know!!

CTMH: Flight Of The Arrows {inspired by Maile Belles}

The first card I have for you today was inspired by this card by Maile Belles. I first stamped the sentiment from the Take Note Stamp Set {that is included in the Artbooking Cricut® Collection} in Black Exclusive Ink™ on the card and then stamped the same image a second time on a sticky note. I cut the sticky note sentiment out and masked the sentiment on the card. Using the Flight Of The Arrows Stamp Set in Lagoon Exclusive Ink™ and adding a strip of Slate Polka-Dot Washi Tape at the base of the card. I also added three Clear Sparkles.

CTMH: February SOTM Wild About Love {inspired by Christine Drogt}The second card was inspired by this card by Christine Drogt. The fox comes from February’s Stamp Of The Month, Wild About Love stamped using Autumn Terracotta Exclusive Ink™.   The background comes from a variety of papers: Proplayer Paper Packet, Ivy Lane Paper Packet,  and Autumn Terracotta Cardstock. I also threw in some Slate Polka-Dot Washi Tape.  The banner, in Slate Exclusive Ink™, and sentiment, in Pacifica Exclusive Ink, are both from the Oodles of Doodles Stamp Set.
