Happy Birthday, Maryam!

Hello crafters!
Welcome all

Todays make is a Birthday card for my friend and colleague Maryam 
using the lovely Tilda with Love Cake from www.magnolia.nu. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARYAM!
Wish you a wonderful day!

 I've colored Tilda with Prismacolor pencils
on Canson Mi-Teintes paper

The big flower is made using a die from Magnolia, 
Coredination cardstock, white gesso and a white pearl. 
The center holding the pearl is also made with a die 
but don't know what brand. 


The tickets are stamps from I think Whimsey, but I'm not sure. 
I've had them for many years. They are embossed and cut out.

I've used a lot of Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies including the base die but the small flowers and the mesh border are from Cheery Lynn, the big leaves from Prima, butterflies from Memory Box and the numbers from Tim Holtz.

Papers from Magnolia and cardstock from Coredinations. 
Seam binding, doilies and pearls from stash.


Have a wonderful day and thanks for looking
Hugs, Lisa

Happy Birthday, Nick!

Hello and welcome!

This card is for my friend Nick. She is celebrating her 40th Birthday today and as she works as a teacher I couldn't resist using Sexy Teacher from www.kennykstamps.com for her card. 
Nick is also my teamie at Club KennyK and you can find her blog here if you like to wish her a Happy Birthday and check out her fantastic makes

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NICK!
Wishing you a wonderful day


The pink paper is white cardstock sprayed with Dylusions Ink spray bubblegum pink. For one of the backing papers I covered a thicker paper with white gesso and Dylusions Ink spray bubblegum pink and then black gesso. I then treated it with sandpaper to make it look distressed. You can maybe see parts of it at the bottom of my card. The teal colored paper is cardstock and the '#happybirtday' sentiment a stamp from Tim Holtz, embossed in black.



The black paper that is suppose to look like the black board we had when I went to school (many years ago, haha), is black cardstock with black gesso treated with sandpaper.

Image Sexy Teacher from www.kennykstamps.com colored with Prismacolor pencils and cut out with a Nellie Snellen tag die and the stamp I used around the images is from Carabelle stamped with distress ink picked raspberry



I bought some black pencils at the local bookstore to match the school theme and the spiral notebook is a stamp from Deep Red, embossed in black and cut out. The letters and numbers are both made with TH dies. The pink corner is made with a Crealies die and the circle mesh with a Kaiserkraft die.



The ruler is made with a stamp I bought in Las Vegas last year (sorry, don't remember what brand), embossed in black. The torn notebook and the picture wheel dies are from TH. The tickets are made with stamps from  Hero Arts and I stamped '40' from a numerical wooden stamp set that my sister in law bought for me at the Craft Barn in UK (I think) many years ago.


Thanks for looking
Wishing you a wonderful day
