Seize the Birthday #278 Red as Main Color - JoAnn


Another different card for me, no flowers or butterflies.  Trying to change things up a little this year.
JoAnn is our wonderful host for the second challenge of February on STB.  She would like us to use red as the main color.  Easy for me as red is one of my favorite colors.  
I used Winnie & Walter Ring in the Celebration stamp set in CP's Rockin' Red ink.  A strip of PTI's patterned paper and some Gina K's black Pearls.
And my all-time favorite birthday sentiment from PTI's Birthday Bash


If you're not a toppings kinda person, well...you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes" Birthday!
The choice is yours!

Seize the Birthday - Splatter - Glenda


Welcome back to a new STB challenge.
 Glenda is our host for this challenge, and she would like us to use splatter on our cards.
I went out of my comfort zone and made a masculine card.  It was inspired by a couple of cards on Gina K.'s FB page.  Come look at all of the amazing inspiration by our team and join us to build up your birthday card stash.
I ink blended with Gina K. inks and used her Friendly Silhouettes stamp set.
Used a PTI wood grain die to impress on the outer frame and streaked with Gina's brown ink.
Splattered with white acrylic ink.

stick with our usual "Anything Goes" Birthday!
The choice is yours!

Color Hues #80 Red & Pink


A card for the challenge at Color Hues  Growing up we never would have put red and pink together as we thought it would clash.  I think it goes perfectly together.

I used part of Gina K.'s new kit, Modern Floral with her inks.  I love how this turned out, but struggled a bit on getting the layers correct after watching her video several times.


I love the new look.  Ty did a great job.




Thanks for stopping by.

Seize the Birthday #276 Colleen - Kraft and Another Color


Our STB challenge this time is hosted by my bestie, Colleen.  Now that the holidays are over it's time to get back to stocking up on your birthday stash.  Come see all of the inspiration by the DT's and play along with us.  This challenge, Colleen would like us to use Kraft plus one other color (of your choice).
I used Gina K's Light, Medium and Dard Lilac on my kraft.  I used Gina's Light lilac on her stencil, Mega Flowers.  The butterflies are Small Butterflies by Pinkfresh.  Gina's ML #13 and not sure what embossing folder I used.  It was just on my desk.

Seize the Birthday #275 Cathy - Embossing Wet/Dry


Welcome back to the New Year with our first challenge at STB.  Cathy is our wonderful host this time and would love to see either wet or dry embossing on our cards.
I white embossed MFT's Romantic Script and then stenciled over it with Gina K's Zinnia with her Light, Medium and Dark Orchid, Green Grass and Fresh Asparagus.  Love those colors.  Sentiment for Gina's Big Birthday and her Pearl Mix.  Gina has a video with this technique on her You Tube channel.
