Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – More balloons

At the previous week’s Card & Cuppa I asked the attendees what sort of project they would like me to create for the following week. The response was male Birthday card.

Treat yourself

Today I’m showing you the birthday card I made for one of my regular class attendees. It uses really bright colours of Melon Mambo and Lemon Lime Twist. Using Night of Navy accents helps to tone these colours down. This combination creates a fresh and cheery look. I chose to use the Oh So Eclectic

For last week’s Card & Cuppa I chose to use a Stamp Set that we hadn’t used for a very long time. As we were revisiting Eastern Beauty, I also revisited a similar project I’d made previously too. I changed the colours slightly using Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Pool Party and set the project

Bright Birthday Numbers

One of the projects at my Stamp-a-Stack classes is a card suitable for children. Here is a bold bright card that ticks that box. It’s similar to this project I made for the child of a friend. However, on this Stamp-a-Stack project I chose to leave it more generic so it would be suitable for
