Happy Birthdays

Hello everyone,
Another super busy day today. I'm on training and find it absolutely draining. I crafted today's cards a couple of weeks ago for workshops at Neeje's Crop Til You Drop.

The card base is Close To My Heart Colonial White. The background paper is Stampin' Up Baja Breeze, textured with Cuttlebug's Perfectly Paisley dry embossing folder. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Trés Jolie Trés Bien 'Play' Paisley, layered on Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie. The focal image is Peel-Off's Daisy in Frame outline sticker adhered to a piece of watercolour paper that was spritzed with water after being smooshed with Tombow markers and glittered with DecoArt Glamour Dust. The sentiment is Gina K. Tag, You're It. The embellishments are Hero Arts Metallic Décor.

This card base is Stampin' Up Very Vanilla. The background layer is Stampin' Up River Rock textured with Cuttlebug's Leafy Branch dry embossing folder. The image, layered on Basic Black, is glossy paper smooshed with Espresso, Oregano and Gold Mixative Ranger alcohol ink and textured with Cuttlebug's Bird Call dry embossing folder. The patterned paper is BasicGrey Sublime. The ribbon is Michael's Special Value. The sentiment is Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday Greetings.

I really loved both these cards. Though both are birthday card, they were each very different and focused on the techniques - glitter and alcohol ink, that I wanted to share. I didn't use all the packages I'd put together so I plan to make sets as gifts.

I hope you enjoy these cards and come back to SPI again soon.
