birthday card trio

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are having a fun day and spending time with your family today. I am enjoying having a day at home with my family. Our feast will be tomorrow with our extended family.  Hopefully today will just be a relaxing day. Here are the birthday cards I have been working on that I promised I would share with you.

These two cards I used the Mama Elephant basic set of dies and their Carnival Cupcakes stamp set too. The birthday sentiments were from a Close to My Heart stamp set. The cupcakes were colored with Copic markers. The cherry has glossy accents and the pink cupcake has a wink of Stella. The water color panels are done with Tim Holtz distress inks and the Sentimental borders Mama Elephant stamp. The ink on the blue sentiment is Lagoon from Close to My Heart; and the purple is Purple Pansy. The sequins were from my miscellaneous stash of sequins.

I made this card with a home stencil and Ranger's texture paste. I took the tiny stars from the Mama Elephant basic set  and cut a bunch of stars from a scrap piece of paper to make a stencil. I colored my texture paste with a Copic marker V99. Then I sprayed pink glimmer mist over my stenciled backed ground. After that I heat embossed the sentiment and stars in Hero Arts silver embossing powder. I used Sky lawn trimmings to finish off my card.  I am going to enter one of these cards in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything goes challenge.  Hope that you have a great Thanksgiving day.  : )
