Happy Birthday to You Friend!

I had joined a card swap where the challenge was to make a card using pink and black only. It was a bit harder to come up than it sounded like it would be when I joined the swap. The pink patterned paper is from Basic Grey. I can't remember the paper packs name (sorry). The silhouette on the front is from SVG Cuts (svgcuts.com) in the collection called Kate's Silhouettes. The pink and black cardstock and the button are from my stash. The card is a Joy Fold Card. It is only the 2nd of this type I have made as I just learned the technique for it this month. I found an excellent tutorial at Split Coast Stampers by Beate Johns. Check it out and give this card fold a try. I saw a bunch of cute cards using the technique when I was searching the web. When opened the sentiment reads "Happy Birthday to You Friend." The stamp is from Unity Stamp Company and comes in the Maggie Girl (It's Your Birthday) set. I am entering this card into four challenges. Hope you like it!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

I thought I would try to slip in at the last and enter into Jaded Blossom's April Showers Brings May Flowers Challenge. For this challenge you must use a stamp from Jaded Blossom. I recently bought my first and only set - Wedding Wishes - so of course that is what I used. I'm really liking how this card turned out! I made a joy fold card using white cardstock from Papertrey Ink. My designer cardstock is from the Simply Spring collection by We R Memory Keepers. I use Memento ink to ink all my edges. And the umbrella die cut is from Miss Kate Cuttables. The file is called "Rainy Day Bear." A big thanks to Beate over at Splitcoast Stampers for the card tutorial. Enjoy!

Welcome Spring!

I want to join in the fun at SVG Cutting Files. Challenge #3 is Spring Things. I used one of their freebies called Spring Lady to make this adorable card. My paper comes the Simply Spring collection from We R Memory Keepers and the cardstock is AC Cardstock. The stamp for the sentiment is from the Bunnies and Blossoms stamps made by SVG Cuts and sold at Unity Stamps. I had to resize my Ladybug to get her to fit the orientation of the card. This is such a simple and fun card to make!
