Sketched Birthday Card

Hello, blogger friends. Thanks for taking the time to take a look at my card/papercraft creations. I really appreciate all of my visitors. I just pray that my work leaves you with inspiration to create with paper and stamps yourself. When working with stamps I say, "If you can color, you can stamp!"
The card I am sharing with you, today, was created for my grandson who just turned 4 years old. I chose 4 slices of cake because it represented how old he was turning. Another thing I did, I took the saying "happy birthday, cupcake" and only used the happy birthday part from the stamp set "Sketched Birthday." I did not think "happy birthday, cupcake" was an appropriate saying for a little boy or man for that matter. I did like the fact that it was in an arched formation. Once I stamped that, I added the number 4 using the stamp set "Memorable Moments." With that all said, this is how it turned out.

These are the Stampin' Up! products you will need to create this card.
Stamp sets: Memorable Moments and Sketched Birthday
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron, and Whisper White
Tools: Big Shot, Squares Collection Framelits, Houndstooth and Chevron Embossing Folders, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Stampin' Write Markers, and a Stampin' Sponge

This card needed to be very colorful because it was made for a child, as well as, it was for a birthday.
Please leave a comment if you would like.

Now go-n-stamp!!

Owl Builder Punch 50th Anniversary Card

Good morning. I have a new card for you using the owl builder punch and the stamp set "Memorable Moments." My mom asked me if I had the time to make her a 50th anniversary card to give to someone using the memorable moments stamp set. I am sure it is not what kind of card she was expecting, but I do believe she liked it.
 I have seen other demonstrators use the owl builder punch to make wedding cards, anniversary cards, and Valentine cards. I also seen a card made by someone that had the owl in a tree. That is where I got my idea from, but made it my way. I do not like to case a card. I like to make it my own by changing it some. This is the final result. There are a lot of different tools used to make this card and quite a bit of detail, but that is what makes it unique and special. I hope you enjoy it and realize it is not that hard to make when you do have the tools to create it.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies needed to create this card.
Stamp Set: Memorable Moments
Classic Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Early Espresso, and Island Indigo
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Naturals Ivory, Always Artichoke, and Soho Subway DSP
Tools: Owl Builder Punch, Big Shot, Ovals Collection Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Circles Collection Framelits, Little Leaves Sizzlits, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Stampin' Sponge
Embellishments: Subtles and Regals Candy Dots 

I do not know what the receivers of the card thought, but I do hope they liked it. It was a fun card to make.
Now go-n-stamp!!
