Another Birthday Card

Hello - this card I made is for my girlfriend's birthday that is coming up in May. (Don't worry she doesn't know about my blog!). I made this with a stampin up stamp that I have actually never even inked before - it was brand new. I can't remember when I bought it - I know it was a long time ago. I am actually looking through a lot of my older stamps and trying to make use of them. I colored the image with my copics and used my new nestability die for the fancy circle. I added green and pink brads in all the holes around the circle. I used a Magnolia swirl die to put in behind the main image and layered with various cardstock and designer paper. She is a dear friend and I am sure she will like this card. I am excited to give it to her.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Hope you have a great weekend - I plan on spending some time in my craft room.

Your stamping friend, Debbie

Happy Birthday Card

Hi - I am back! I haven't been in my craft room since before Christmas and just haven't been in the mood to work on anything until I had a friend over last week to help her with coloring and that was all it took! I was totally inspired once again and have not been able to think of anything else - I knew it was in my blood - lol!!. I was a bit worried when I felt the way I did - I really was hoping I would get my creative desire back. I guess sometimes that happens when we lose interest. I know I went quite crazy before Christmas making cards and I probably just burnt myself out a bit. Anyways my niece's 10th birthday is the beginning of May and I made this adorable Magnolia card. As this was my first card since some time - I didn't keep track of any of my copics used. I used paper from my paper stash and my nestability die cut for the circle. I added some ribbon, flowers and jewels as embellishments. Thanks for stopping by for a look!
