Happy Birthday

FMS#73 by Deb Fearns

Today’s card is a one that I made in a hurry!  I am really behind on making birthday cards at the moment but I was determined this time not be late with the card (even though I wrote on the card at the birthday dinner just before handing it over!).

I find the best way to get started on a card quickly is to choose one of the Stampin’ Up! coordinating Designer Series Paper and find a Sketch.  For this card, I used the beautiful Tea for Two DSP (p3 SC) and some embellishments from the Seasonal Catalogue.  I was particularly inspired by Jennifer Tinko’s Design Team card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches.  This is the sketch layout:

Belated Birthday Wishes


Lots of new product.. how exciting! There are so many things that I love about this card that I don’t know where to start!  The beautiful paper is from the Sale-a-Bration free product range called Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper.  The other fabulous items are from the NEW Seasonal Catalogue: gorgeous Designer Builder Brads (p12), Oval Framelits (p4), beautiful flower trim (p5) and Dress Up framelits dies to make the dress (p32).

This card made it in the post a bit late (just by one week) so the All Dress Up! stamp set (p32) was perfect for the inside sentiment.  Take a look:

Be My Valentine…

Be My Valentine 1

Happy Valentine’s Day! 

I had fun altering this old coffee jar as a Valentine gift for my children.  I filled it up with some chocolates.  My husband doesn’t eat chocolate so I made a gift for him that included mixed nuts.  I will share that with you soon once I get a photo.

I changed the colour of the jar by mixing white acrylic paint and Real Red reinker.  Yay!  I have actually made something that I pinned!  You can check out the instructions on how to do this HERE.  I then used lots of bits and pieces from the Artisan Embellishment Kit – Seasonal Catalogue (p10).  The sentiment comes from the Annual Catalogue – Delightful Dozen stamp set (p141).

Be My Valentine 2

I hope everyone has had a fabulous day!
