Seize the Birthday #256 with JoAnn

Our new challenge at STB is hosted by JoAnn and she would like to see red, white and one more color on your cards.  Come see what all of our talented DT's have posted for your inspiration.  Join in the fun.

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

I used a background stamp by MFT, Never Ending Love, that Colleen brought over for a craft day.  I made a couple of them for future cards.  Since it was red and white, I thought it will be good to start with.  I found this cute Memory Box Delicate Butterfly in my dies and decided to use it.  Cut another circle in red from the Stitched and Scallop circles by MFT?, and used it to back up the butterfly.  I popped it up and used some Gina K. Black Pearls for my third color.  The sentiment is from Gina K's Big Birthday.
I really love how this came out and it came together so easily.  Love when that happens.

Thanks for stopping by.

Color Hues #58 Guest Designer

I am so honored to be a Guest on Color Hues.
I decided to go out of my comfort zone and create a card without flowers or butterflies.
I used an old stamp set from Hero Arts Hot Air Balloon and colored with Copics
The clouds were a stencil from MFT
Come join in the fun and use the following colors to create a card.

But I ran across this die set from Poppy stamps and ink blended some card stock and then die cut the image.  And just couldn't resist 2 more cards with butterflies on them.

After I finished this one, I looked inside the folder and found a stencil that went with the die and used it to blend the second one.
I added this sentiment from PTI Stacked Sentiments to both cards.

Thanks for stopping by.

Seize the Birthday #255 Use your Initials

Glenda is our hostess for the second half of January, on STB and she would like us to use our initials with some element on your card.  I was a little confused at first but with her explanation, figured it out.
For example, my initials are LRS, so I used the S with the sunburst frame, and the sentiments, sunshine and smiles.
Come join us for the fun and also build up your birthday card stash.

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

Ink to Paper (PTI) On the Border Sunburst Frame Die
Ink blended with Gina K inks.
Pinkfresh, Celebrate Stencil, Stamp & Die
PTI's Sunflower Harvest for sentiment

Time Out Challenge #231 & NBUS #47

It's been quite a while since I have entered a card in these 2 challenges.  I have 2 cards to share with you today.
I used masking tape to make these two clean & simple cards.  I love how they turned out.  I was inspired by Gina K's card below using rainbow colors and design.  I used Gina's stamp sets, Never Lose Hope and Butterfly Trio.  Butterflies are one of my favorite things to stamp.
And the sentiment is Big Birthday by Gina also.

As these are new stamps to me, I also linked up to NBUS.

Thanks for stopping by.
