Birthday Cards

 Hello peeps and happy Tuesday,

More after dinner stamping last night, and I was able to get two birthday cards completed. Using the color inspiration from two challenges, the TGIF Color Challenge and the Gina K Designs Monthly Mix January challenge, here's what I came up with.

First is the black and white card. This uses mostly all SU supplies. The gems and the dies to cut the panels are not SU. The card base and the other white panel are SU Whisper White card stock as is the black card stock. The flower stamp set and corresponding dies are the Blossoms In Bloom bundle from a few years ago. I stamped the flowers in black ink, then cut the panel and the black mat out using the Gina K Master Layouts 1 dies. Then one of the flower dies is cut from black card stock and the outline flower die from Whisper White. They are glued to the stamped panel with liquid glue. I added some Pretty Pink Posh white gems for embellishment. The greeting is part of the stamp set. The flag dies are from the Gina K Designs Master Layouts 2 die set.

For the inside of this card I stamped the flower images in black and the centers with gray inks. The greeting is from a Gina K Designs Wreath Builder stamp set. I again used the Master Layouts 1 die set to cut out and layer the panels.

Here's the card that I made for the Gina K Designs Monthly Mix challenge. The theme for this month's challenge is "Put Your Red Dress On." Red must be the predominate color and the theme must be celebration, like birthday.

All supplies on this card, paper, ink, stamps, dies are all Gina K Designs. Actually, there is one exception. The dotted background is made using the bubble wrap technique.

The red card base and red ink are the Red Hot shade. The flower is stamped with Black Onyx ink and colored with Red Hot ink using a blending brush. I used some GKD Cherry Red ink to blend over the flower center to give it dimension, The bee is colored with yellow Copics. Both the flower and bee are cut out with the corresponding set dies. The panels are cut out using the Master Layout 2 dies.

The birthday theme is carried to the inside using more images and another greeting from the same stamp set. The hexagon shapes are from the stamp set and are stamped with Lemon Drop ink.

These cuties will go into my birthday stash for use later this year. 

Thanks for checking in and have a great day,
