Birthday Weekend

Cthulhucard

I think everybody knows those weekends, the ones where all you have to do is go to peoples birthdays. Somehow you can go for weeks without anyone celebrating anything, and then *bam*, your entire weekend is stuffed! We had one of those weekends. But that also means an excuse for me to make some cards! The one above is for our friend Jelrik, who celebrated by hosting a gaming day. I got the adorable Cthulhu design from Urban Threads, whose hand embroidery design make awesome digital stamps. And very afforable too! The little balloon is from a Marianne Design limited edition Creatable which I cut out of a paint chip. It makes the cute Cthulhu look even more happy and cute. I might have to make one with the same design where he is jumping out of a cake. What do you guys think?

The second card I made for a friend of my father, who invited us to dinner for her birthday. We had a delicious cold buffet with lost of veggie dishes and salades, as always, they know how to cook. She loves nature patterns and color so I decided to go for some feathers. Which, totally coincidentally of course {ahem}, meant that I could try out my new Spellbinders Dies. I am totally in love with the Spellbinder sentiments! I already owned one set, of which I have the ‘hello’ now in vinyl on my front door and made the most adorable baby card with it. The ‘happy birthday’ is from the Spellbinder D-lites dies – Sentiments 3, which also has one that says ‘with love’, too cute! My newest obsession is peacock feathers, which colours inspired the colours of my craftroom, so of course I also needed {yes needed…} a die with it. The feathers came in a cute set of two and are called ‘feathers on the wind’ from their Shapeabilities collection. The card didn’t turn out as I envisioned it, but I love the combination of colours and the simple-ness of it.

OmacardThe last card I made for my Grandma. She loved the embossed background and the cute little fairy stamp from Marina Fedotova. I absolutely adore her beautiful fairy designs that just call out to be coloured in pastels. Which of course gave me an excuse to practice with my Flexmarkers again! The ‘love’ is from the aformentioned Spellbinders Sentiments 3 which was really the finishing touch on this card. I tried to keep it soft and colourful, really making the stamp the star of the show. I think I pulled it off quite well!

    1. Aww thanks! I’m planning on making a card that really does that actually! The other spellbinder die also had a ‘just a note’ text and I have the quill and inkpot die from Marianne. All I need is inspiration XD
