Build a Birthday Card (CT #91)

I made this birthday card using the soon to be retiring Build A Birthday Stamp Set and the retiring Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack. It was fun to stamp a birthday cake in the exact colors that I wanted. It took me just a few minutes to figure out how to line the pieces up. The original card had crooked layers, that I decided not to replicate on my card. I felt like the birthday cake would slide off the platter, so I ended up with straight layers. LOL! To find out how to make this card join me for a Facebook live at 10am today (link below) or watch the recording later.

Butterfly Basics Card (CT #90)

I have been admiring the card on page 3 of the Occasions Catalog for some time now, so I thought it would be a fun choice to CASE. I love how this card has a designer series paper overlay, which I will show you how to make during my Facebook Live Video today. Later today this video will be posted on youtube and in this blog post. Once you know how to make the overlay making a card with this layout will be a snap! :)

Cool Treats Cards

It's time to say goodbye to the 2015-2017 In-colors and what better way to say goodbye than with an ice cream cone. On Monday, April 10th, the retiring list will be announced and these colors will change to "while supplies last" status, and may even already be sold out. Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder are two of my favorites that will be disappearing. Make sure you get them before they're gone.

If you watch my short 8-minute above video, I'll show you how to make these cards. I will also share my tips for how to bend a photopolymer stamp and how to use up small paper scraps to make a bigger piece. All the supplies you'll need for this project are available for purchase HERE!
