Birthday Cards

Had lots of new stamps I hadn’t used, so I made a variety of always needed birthday cards.I used the Aviary set by Stampin-up. I will warn you, it is very hard to get the birds just right in the cages and the cages on the stand. I have done this set before where I embossed the cages in silver and that looks really nice,too. I have two stamps that go together. One says – A little bird told me, and the other says¬†¬† It’s your birthday. I have just gotten a 150 paper pad from HSN by Martha Stewart. It has a solid on the reverse of each paper. The paper is a good weight for making a matching envelope, too. I also used some Penny Black stamps(hedgehogs, snail) and the bicycle with the buttons from the Every Day Button Bits set by Paper-trey. It was too hot this weekend to do much else.

Sympathy Cards

While I am sure there were many other things I should have been doing this weekend, I decided it was time to replenish my stock of sympathy cards. I like lining the envelopes and also stamping part of the design on the envelope, when I can. In this group of cards, I used a number of Spellbinders dies and an embossing folder. The gorgeous aqua paper with white flowers is by paper-source. It has fine lines of copper metallic going around the flowers, so I added copper brads. The paper with pink roses and black leaves is also by paper-source. I had some matching tan lighter weight paper so I made matching envelopes with my Martha Stewart scoring board. If you don’t have one, they are wonderful! The brown and cream papers are mostly stampin up. I got a set of sympathy stamps from JustRite that work with the clear ridged blocks. They really have some wonderful sentiments. They are mostly on the insides, though. I embossed the bird on the seafoam card with a paper-source embossing powder that is brown with flecks of aqua.
