Happy Birthday, Tracy

It was my sister's birthday on Tuesday & try as I might I could not get this picture to upload. Today I have finally managed. It was a difficult card to photograph too as the weather has been extremely bright & the card kept in pale shades.

I cut a section off the front of a square card & ran it through my Big Shot with a floral border embossing folder. Then I stamped the free stamp from Craft Stamper magazine in the top corner. In the bottom corner I stamped "Sister" (Papermania) and butterflies (Cavallini & Co.) The main image is of course my absolute favourite Crafty Individuals stamp, which I stamped onto some inked card which actually has Perfect Pearls shimmer but the camera couldn't pick it up.

A Birthday & A Card I forgot...

The first card is for my friend Kate's birthday.

I wanted a simple design so used my Scor-pal to make a double lined square before stamping this months free cover stamp from Craft Stamper. For a vibrant splash I coloured the image with wax crayons. The greeting was stamped from a small set I have.

This second card is one I made for forum friend, Joanne back in March & thought I had blogged but realised I hadn't! Oops! I had based it on her February 2011 Craft Stamper article "Clean Collage". Using a Crafty Individuals stamp for my main image.
