Magical Birthday w/Eyelet Outlet

Hi Friends! I’m on the Eyelet Outlet blog today to share a magical birthday card!

I had this one round shaped pair of glasses from the Eyeglass Brads set sitting on my desk and had a DUH moment, thinking of making it into a magical birthday card for my Potter-loving son!! His birthday isn’t for a while, but I know he has other friends who are into the books too, so I figure it’s always good to have a stash on hand!!

I paired it with some star washi from the Eyelet Outlet Store. I used the beautiful Black and Gold Foil Washi and some wide star washi tape to create my background. I love how simple it was to put together the background and how the gold and black just pops off the page!

Super fun magical birthday card!! I loved being able to use up some beautiful washi too!! Thanks for stopping by today and see you again soon!!

CFC #204 w/CAS-ual Friday Stamps

Hi friends! It’s time for another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This week, the challenge is

I did NOT have any CAS-ual Fridays Stamps with butterflies on them. So I stared at my stamps for a few days and then improvised. haha! The butterflies are made using the awareness ribbon from the Calm and Gentle stamp set. I just did a partial inking of the looped part of the ribbon (not the tails) and then added some Nuvo drops to create the butterfly bodies.

The hearts are from the Somebunny stamp set, and the sentiment is from the Little Birdies stamp set. I stamped the hearts all over the background, and then added in a strip that I watercolored and then cut into a fishtail banner. LOVE how this card came together, especially since it took me a couple days of staring at it to get it to figure itself out lol!!

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you come join in the challenge!!

Hi Friends! I’m on the Kat Scrappiness blog today to share a card featuring the new Crafter’s Essentials 2 dies in the Kat Scrappiness shop!!!

I used the brand new Crafter’s Essentials 2 Dies on this card. I used the biggest die, the background with the arrow cutouts, and the wide fishtail banner die. In my video you’ll see that I cut out the fishtail banner from the actual background piece I used… I’m a big believer in being thrifty with my hoard of patterned paper lol!! If it gets hidden then I usually end up die-cutting or punching it for use somewhere else on the project or even in another project. I also used the Layered Coffee Cup Die to create the focal point of this card. I stamped out the sentiment from the Coffee Chick stamp set using the Walnut ink pad on the sleeve of the coffee cup… so happy that it fit so perfectly!

Here’s my video… apologies for the bad framing of this one. Trying out a new setup to get a tighter zoom but ended up cutting off a lot of the bottom of the frame. Sorry!! I was going to try to reshoot but this is *gasp* the last of my striped paper and I couldn’t recreate the card!! So sad!!

Birthday Balloons w/Eyelet Outlet

Hi Friends! I’m on the Eyelet Outlet blog again today to share a bright and fun birthday card!

I started with these Bright Balloon Brads (say that three times fast!) and found that they matched perfectly with this Wide Dot Washi Tape! Super perfect match!! So I decided to add them to my card as a bunch of balloons this adorable penguin is holding!

Pair that with a sweet and simple birthday sentiment and add another balloon brad, and done! Love this bunch of balloons… such beautiful colors!!

Thanks for stopping by today and see you again soon!!

Eggs to my Bacon w/Eyelet Outlet

Hi Friends! I’m over on the Eyelet Outlet blog today to share a fun mini-card set!

I used one of the cutest brad sets, the Breakfast Bacon, Eggs, and Toast Brads. This time I used only the eggs and bacon brads for these mini 3×3 cards because they were a perfect fit with this sentiment!! Eyelet Outlet makes these adorable Breakfast Clear Stamps that would work perfectly with these brads too, but I haven’t had a chance to get my hands on them yet!! So I made it work with what I had on hand!!

Love this little set of cards… Perfect for lunch box notes too!! Thanks for stopping by today and see you again soon!!

Piggy Puppy w/Kinda Cute

Hello friends! Sharing another card using an amazing digi from the Kinda Cute by Patricia shop! This is one of the THREE piggies from the Piggy Set and he is just too cute! Honestly I fell in love with this pig because he reminds me of my puppy lol!! She sits with her head tilted and her ears flopped over like this all the time!! So now this is my favorite piggy puppy haha!!!

I colored him up with my Copics – and I wish I had waited to match the PP before doing so!! I think I would have been so much happier with him a little less salmon-pinky and more bubblegum pink to match the paper!! But he is still cute!!

Make sure you stop by the Kinda Cute by Patricia Facebook Group and see what the rest of the team is up to!!

First Responder Birthday

Hi Friends! I’m on the Eyelet Outlet blog today to share a birthday card for a special little boy!

My kids are gearing up to go back to school in just a few short weeks so I wanted to start prepping some birthday cards for them to give away because I inevitably end up needing them!! My youngest is still obsessed with vehicles of all types, especially emergency ones so these First Responder Brads ended up being perfect to make a card with!! In fact, he wants to keep it so I might need to make another if he won’t give it back lol!!

I also added some fun washi tape to the bottom of the card. This Road Washi Tape is just the perfect complement to these (or any vehicle) brads, and I thought that this Red Dot Washi Tape finished the bottom of the card really nicely! The last thing I did was add some Yellow Glitter Enamel Dots to the bottom corner of the card to balance out that yellow “hooray” sentiment.

Super fun preschooler’s birthday card!! Thanks for stopping by today and see you again soon!!
