It Means…. Happy Birthday!

AlohaBD-blk

Sharing a couple of birthday cards made with the July release from Our Daily Bread Designs!

This first card features the stamp set, Aloha, and the beautiful Bird of Paradise flower. The set has several sentiments native to Hawaii, how cool! There is also a Bird of Paradise die, again…cool! And, of course the Tropical Leaves and Ferns are a perfect embellishment!

I also used Pierced Rectangles (cutting two in half to elongate them), Lattice Background, and Boho Bolds paper.

This next sample is for my flamingo loving granddaughter who turns 18 on Sunday!

TickledPinkSideStepWM

Ever since she was little she has loved…no… LOVED flamingos and pink! Tickled Pink is the perfect set for her! I used the Flamingos die to cut the stamped images out of the bright Boho Bolds paper. Again, Tropical Leaves, Ferns and Frangipani are the perfect embellishment! The plaid paper is also from Boho Bolds. I also used Side Step Card die…so easy!! Grass Border, and Pierced Ovals.

I’d Love to Be There!

BonVoyageTickledPnk-sky

Today we’re taking a look back at the July release from Our Daily Bread Designs. Everything you need to create that tropical look!

Here is my “shadow box” card.
BonVoyageTickledPnkWM

I used Distress Oxide inks to create my watercolor background before stamping Bon Voyage. A piece of blue from the Boho Bolds collection was adhered to cardstock for the front, then cut with Double Stitched Rectangles. I added Tropical Leaves, Ferns, Tickled Pink flamingos, Flamingos, Grass Lawn, and clouds from Clouds and Raindrops. (several of the leaves and ferns are also from the Boho Bolds)

When a Grad Loves Flamingos…

TikledPinkAlliesd

My granddaughter, Allie, has loved flamingos since she was little, so how perfect when ODBD came out with the set Tickled Pink , I had to use it to make her grad card. But that’s not all!

TikledPinkAllieWrap

I also made wrapping paper! I used a piece of freezer paper, took several Distress Oxide inks direct to the paper and spritzed with water, then had some fun just kind of finger-painting to blend! When dry, I mounted both images on a block and randomly stamped. The leftover piece I had after wrapping, I cut in strips, and using scissors made curly ribbons!

Here is Allie with one of her many beloved birds!

For the card, I stamped and colored the flamingos, then used the coordinating Flamingos die to cut them out. I also used Pierced Rectangles, Rectangles, and Large Numbers. The fun paper is from the Boho Bolds collection.

Follow Your Heart

HappyWeddingDayHeart-sd

Sharing a card from a set that is “wedding themed” but I like that it’s versatile with this little sentiment too!

This is Happy Wedding Day, Wedding Wishes Collection (beautiful paper!!), and Heart Topiary. Pretty simple really. The topiary is quick and easy to color and cut with the die! I love that Ornate Hearts matches the paper design!

A little hard to tell, but the sentiment and topiary are embossed.
