Seize the Birthday

Happy Thursday everyone! It's almost the weekend again and we have a new challenge for you at Seize the Birthday.

It's easy peasy because....there is NO toppings this go around. Yup Anything goes!! Just remember that it MUST be a birthday card.

Here is my card for this week. I felt like getting my Copics out and doing some very simple colouring.
I also played along with our sister challenge site Seize the Sketch.
Cardstock: Neenah, SU
Sequins: Paper Bakery, unk
Stamps: Wplus9, Penny Black
Ink: Versafine
Dies: Spellbinders
Ribbon: SU
I also put some Wink of Stella on the balloons to make them a bit glittery.

Debate Team Card Kit

 Happy Friday everyone! I would like to share some more cards that I created with the May Debate Team Card kit.

I die cut out the word “happy” and a flourish element from black cardstock and then used the negative piece as my focal point for my card. Behind it I placed the dictionary type paper that is in the kit so it peeks out from the die cuts. I embellished with a few sequins from the store and my card was done.


My next card was all about the patterned paper in the kit that looks like cork. I first made a background layer using the brown cardstock and a muted piece of paper from the kit and stitched around it with my sewing machine WITHOUT using any thread just to poke holes all around the edge. Next I took a butterfly punch and made 9 butterflies out of that fabulous “cork” paper and placed them in 3 rows on the card and put a pearl in the center of each.

My “Hello” sentiment is made using the Jillibean alphas in the kit.


In the kit is this map type paper and I matted it with the striped paper which made me think of air mail envelopes. Do they even still exist? Maybe I am dating myself….lol!

 I used the following items from the store to embellish  my card. Blue sequins, Flair.

I hope you will pop over to the Paper Bakery store and pick up a card kit for yourself!

Summer Time

It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. You all did a fabulous job with the last one.

You can choose an "Anything Goes" birthday card....

or you can choose to add in the "toppings" option.
The toppings option for this challenge  is "Summer Time".
I did use the toppings but after I finished my card I thought it maybe looked more like Fall. Oh well the flowers made me think of!!
