Hola! I’m sharing this card I made for my niece, who is turning 12!!!??? How!!?? I swear she was just turning 3 yesterday. Yup, I’m that adult that cannot digest that children just keep on growing! Haaa! 🙂 ❤
I thought this bear would be fantastic to hold some fun balloons! AND a cupcake, while sporting a party hat! Busy little dude! 🙂
I colored the cutie bear and his accessories with Copic markers, added some Stickles and Wink of Stella sparkle. I tied silver thread to each balloon (which, while time consuming, is a fun detail) and finished it off with a little washi tape and stitching. In the end, it’s a little bit busier of a card than I generally make, but it is a PARTY! 🙂
For this, I used Essentials by Ellen All Inside ( and dies), EH’s Silver Linings, and Avery Elle’s Numbered Balloons and Party Animal stamp/die.
I’m adding this for the Mix-It Up Challenge with Avery Elle over at Ellen Hutson! Perfect! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Biggest birthday wishes to E on Monday! Shhhhhh! 🙂 ❤
Geesh! I have not made a card in many days! I don’t know how long it has been, but awhile. Mid-August to Mid/Late September is action packed around here! It’s been fun/busy/crazy for certain, but I am looking forward to regularly scheduled programming again. Or Christmas break, whichever gets here first! 🙂
Anyway, a quick share today to freshen’ things up around here!
I made some little gift cards for my son’s friends a while back. Well, he wanted a fish birthday card too! So voila! 🙂I used Avery Elle’s super fun fish: That Bites. Of course, searching for this stamp set link, I see there are many new Avery Elle stamps that I will be adding to my wishlist! Dang. Love that peeps keep making the Awesome! 🙂
Oh, also, I used Avery Elle’s Numbered Balloons.
Here’s the fun cards I made prior (in progress, that is.):
I did actually remember to take a pic after I finished them, but no time to hunt it down now! 🙂
Ok…gotta run! Happy Birthday to my favorite little man! I love him so. ❤
Take care all- Jill
Lots of fun birthdays to make cards for! I used some awesome Avery Elle stamp sets for this one: Numbered Balloons, Party Animal, and Surf’s Up! I decided I’d love to have the dies from the Numbered Balloons! 🙂 Never fails. Haaa!Oh, to be five! 🙂
I colored the van with Copics, used Distress inks to rub over, and finished off the balloon with some Wink of Stella shine. That was a mistake bc my WOS pen is sort of on the fritz and spurts out a lot all at once. Should have waited til after I photo’d. I say this EVERY TIME I touch that pen! Grrrrr. Haaaa! Oh well. 🙂
The wonky stitch rectangle die cut is MFT. I’m pretty much using that on everything right now 🙂 The STAX set it comes from rocks! 🙂
That’s about it for today. Stay warm! I went out this morning and it was 1 lovely degree today! 🙂
