Birthday Girl – Fearless!


Hello There! Sharing a card with you today that I made for a very special co-worker who works non-stop to please everyone in our office as she manages everything from booking flights, creating Purchase Orders, setting up meetings, etc. The list goes on forever. She goes above and beyond her position and we all love her dearly for it. She takes our cubicles apart and rebuilds them all when the need arises or adds in new cubicles for new hires, decorated all of the offices for management and at times you can even see her up on a ladder fixes ceiling tiles or changing lightbulbs. LOL!

So for this year, I just had to make birthday card featuring the stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie called “Fearless Farah“. I used both the image and sentiment from this collection. The sentiment couldn’t have described her any better. LOL!

To create the texture for the brick wall, I ran the Darice – Brick Wall embossing folder through my Cuttlebug using Bristol paper. Then ran Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge across the top of the paper. Next I used a watercolour brush and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tea Dye, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rusty Hinge to create the texture.

To make the sign I first embossed the sentiment and then used Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames die to cut it out. Edged around with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wild Honey.

Sound the Sirens!


Hi There! A very special guy in our lives turned 55 recently and since he is a police officer, I couldn’t resist using this fun stamp set from #Your Next Stamp called “Freeze” to make his birthday card.

I used the same stamp for the images and sentiments on the inside of the card as well.

He loved his card and I hope that you do too.

All images were stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool. Sentiments were stamped using MISTI and Versa Fine – Onyx Black, then embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail. Heat set with Marvy Embossing Heat Tool. Coloured in images with Copic markers.

80th Birthday!


Hi There! Today I’m sharing a birthday card for my loving mom who turned 80 this year. It was a wonderful birthday and my husband and I managed to surprise her. She didn’t know we were coming to visit as we kept it a secret. As she was walking towards the restaurant in the parking lot, my mom and dad looked up and saw me standing there. My parents were both so shocked to see me, as I live 7 – 9 hours away from home. I also managed to surprise her again when we went back to my brother’s place for desert. I had made her a birthday cake, which everyone loved. It was a very quick visit, only for a couple of days, but I wouldn’t have missed it! After all, 80 only comes around once in a lifetime. LOL!

For the card I chose the stamp by “Sherri Baldy – My-Besties Stamps“. I stamped the image using Memento Ink, Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice crisp image. The image was then coloured in with Copic Markers and edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Rasberry around the image frame, balloon and also the card.

I printed the sentiment out on my printer and then used my Cuttlebug and the die from My Creative Time – Stitched Large Balloons. Tied on a little bit of twine to complete the balloon. My mom loved her card and I hope that you do too!

Happy 60th Birthday!


Hi One Crazy Stamper Fans!

Hello There! My brother turned 60 this year and so I had to have some fun with his card. LOL!  I thought the background paper was perfect for his card with all those candles.

I used the stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called “Birthday Bob” and coloured in the image with Copic markers. I tried to colour the candles to match the background paper.

The sentiment was created in Microsoft Word using Cooper Black font and then printed out on my printer. Then I die cut it with My Creative Time – Stitched Circle Balloon Dies using my Cuttelbug and completed the edging around the balloon with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber.

The main image and co-ordinating rectangles were all die cut with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set.

On the inside of the card I loved the sentiment:  Birthday Emergency (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) and Firefighter Dragon (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). My brother is also a Firefighter so I couldn’t resist the temptation! LOL!

He loved his card and I hope you do too!
