Happy Birthday Julie and Val!

I made these cards for 2 of my friends birthdays. Val's was yesterday and Julie's is today. We were all supposed to get together for a bit of a party tonight, but I wasn't feeling well, and stayed home. I so wish I was there with them, I know I am missing out on a fun stamping night! Val did drop by and pick the cards though...thanks Val!

The cupcake card is for Val. The cupcake is from Inkadinkado, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I just stamped with Archival black, coloured with copics. I then used a glue pen to colour over the frosting and put clear glitter over top. I used bright colours for Val's card, because it just suits her! lol The scalloped layers are done with the nestabilities. In the photo the ribbon looks red on my screen, but really it matches the card base of bright pink.

The butterfly card is for Julie, who has a love for butterflies! Tree branch and sentiment are from Hero Arts, butterfly from Inkadinkado. I used the nestabilities alot on this card, I am so glad I took the plunge and bought myself some! All the images are stamped with Versafine Sepia. The blooms on the tree branch have stickles in the centers, can't really see it in the photo.

Thanks for dropping by today! I think my MOJO is slowly coming back to me! I actually feel inspired...hopefully it stays with me!

Have a great evening everyone!

I love the butterfly card. The sepia color works wonderfully and I never would have thought of that. Wonderful cards.

Hi Kim,

Thanks again so much for the beautiful butterfly wishes birthday card! I really like the sepia ink with the light pink - such a nice combination. It's just gorgeous and it's proudly displayed in my craft room for me to look at while I create!

Val's cupcake card is just sweet, too and the bright colours fit Val to a tee! Sorry we missed you for our girls night, but I'm looking forward to getting together again soon once we're all rid of the darn flu here!

Hope you're having a great day! :)
