Birthday cards

Hello crafty friends!

I got my hands on this CTMH stamp yesterday.  Can you believe, it's only $2.95?!!  (You can find it HERE). 

Here are some cards I made with that cute little stamp.  First, I used my leftover Sarita workshop papers.  I posted about the Sarita WOTG HERE).  I had quite a bit of scraps and pieces left over, and that's what I used for a few cards.  For this first one, I also used the Frame Flair stamp set, which coordinates with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

The background for the following card is from a stamp set that will be available in September (stay tuned for more cards I made with that stamp set!).  The Lagoon houndstooth washi tape can be found HERE. 

On this next one, I used VersaMark ink and white embossing powder.  It looks really cool! 

I also used a scallop border punch on this one.  The punch can be found HERE.

Next, I got the Laughing Lola cardmaking kit (which I do another blog post about).  After making the cards as instructed in the kit, I used my leftover scraps and embellies once again.  Laughing Lola patterned paper is available HERE. 

Some pretty simple cards, but they're still homemade.  I welcome homemade sentiments over Hallmark ANY DAY!  :)

In all, yesterday I made 13 cards of my own design and 15 from the Laughing Lola cardmaking kit.  I was actually pretty tired at the end of the day!  It's worth it though because now I have a good assortment of cards on hand.  I will post later about the Lola kit cards. 

Thanks for stopping by and leaving love!



  1. I soooooo need to make some cards, especially using scraps as you did. I have a ton (no really, a TON) of scraps just waiting for me to make cards out of. For some reason cards seem hard to make. You did a fantastic job and love that you made simple and easy to copy cards.

  2. That is a cute stamp - I really like embossed sentiments. Used to make a bunch at a time and got out of that, these days I print 'em instead.
