Birthday cards

Hello! Jamie here with more birthday cards. I'm so glad to be building up my stash of these cards, as I always need them, but never have enough made.

Distress oxide inks are quickly becoming some of my favorite inks. Paired with the large Happy Birthday stamp from Victorine Originals, they make a perfect card no matter what technique I use!

For this first card, I dry embossed a paisley pattern for the background of my card. Then I used my distress oxide inks to color in the background with a blending tool. To make the colors blend more together, I took some of that distress oxide ink on a wet paintbrush and flicked it all over my card in the same colors of the background.

I stamped that beautiful Happy Birthday stamp on a white scrap of paper. I didn't like the look of the straight ink, so I traced over the happy birthday in a coordinating color with my amazing Kirarina Wink Glitter markers.

Then I used the same "flicking" method to splatter that white paper. I matted the sentiment on purple paper and popped it up on the card with adhesive foam. To finish it off, I attached some metal curly embellishments.

For my second card, I again used the distress oxide inks, but I applied them directly to my paper. Then I "flicked" more colors over top of it. After that was dry, I random stamped the Victorine Originals Festively Wrapped gift stamp to finish my background. 

I stamped the Happy Birthday stamp on white card stock, and matted it on a pink. Then I added some two-tone twine to the left side of my card to finish it off. 

For my final birthday card, I stuck with the distress oxide inks, but wanted a more masculine card. I started by directly applying the ink to my cardstock, then I sprayed it with water. '

I wanted a more textured look, so I used the Victorine Originals Lined Background stamp. First, I just got the stamp wet with water and stamped it over the background. Then, I used ink to stamp again randomly over the background.

I added a strip of brown cardstock, that I had distressed the edges, to the bottom of the card. I "flicked" it with blue distress oxide ink and added some adhesive triangles.

For my sentiment, I used the Victorine Originals Happy Birthday stamp. I put it on kraft cardstock and then popped that up on the card. I added some splatters of blue to it to finish it off.

Thanks for checking out my birthday creations! Have a wonderfully crafty day!

National Anthem.....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!!

Today I thought I would share a Red, White, & Blue Card-

With the fourth of July coming up I felt the need
to create some Patriotic cards that I will mail
off to some of my friends!

from Victorine Originals!! I gotta say this was
so easy to use and I LOVE how my background turned out!!

I used my Distress oxide inks in Candied Apple & Salty Ocean
Then I grabbed my Picket Fence Distress ink and stamped
the center in the white ink - It looked like it might fade out
so I pulled out some White embossing powder and poured
it over the center, part and heat embossed it

It totally made a huge difference and looks great between
the Red & Blue Words ...
As you can tell I did all of that on some Kraft Cardstock
And since it looks so nice, I didn't want to
take away from it too much --

So I decided to use a piece of Vellum and stamp
U.S.A. & an Eagle from the Strokes of Pride Raisin Boat
Stamp set. I used some Ultra Fine Black Embossing
powder on that part and I think it turned out nice...

 I felt my card needed a little something Extra --
So I die cut 2 Medium sized stars in Blue & Red and then 
2 tiny Stars in Silver then I adhered them
in the areas were the vellum was.

-- Just a closer look at my card and the Stamp Sets I used --
