This card is one that I saw on Pinterest. I CASED is almost exactly, with the exception of the ribbon as I loved it just the way it was. It came together very quickly using the Music Notes wheel, and the flower from “Oh, Hello”.

I should have plenty of MDS pages coming up from the wild party we had for Emma on the weekend. What is more fun than a girly party of rainbows? In the meantime, I’ll show you her Birthday card. This is a hybrid card, partially designed in MDS, and partially paper…the best of both worlds really.
The Rainbow was the same one that I designed using punches for her Invitations….but I don’t think I showed those to you either, did I? Well this is what they looked like in MDS, then they were printed out and cut out…very cute indeed:
The back of the invitations were printed on the back of the rainbows. Each girl was assigned a colour to wear to match the theme. I’ll have more photos of the party to show later in the month….
Back to that hybrid card though, one thing I really like about this card is the Umbrella. It a stamp from the “Sunshine and Sprinkles” CD in the Seasonal Catalogue. I made it quite large and proceeded to colour it in. YES! You can colour in line art images in MDS! It’s tricky and time consuming, but if you are patient (unlike me) and you don’t mind it not being exactly perfect (don’t look too closely), then it can be done. This is exactly what I did to colour in the umbrella, then I printed it and cut it out as well. So cute! Check out this video:
This is another one of those Brayered background pieces that sat on my desk for 5 months after Heartfelt. I made this one into a Masculine Birthday card with Open Sea. Quick and Simple.
This was another card that I CASED from Pinterest…but changed many things to make it my own. I used the Honeycomb embossing folder and the Beautiful Butterflies die with the More Amore DSP and doily as the highlight.
Lots of bits and pieces going on on this card, with the Vintage Faceted Buttons, the ruffled ribbon, the butterflies, doily and ticket punches.
This card was fairly quick and easy for a Male card, so I made two! My Brother’s birthday is coming up next month, and then my Dad too, but not till July. That one will go in the “to be mailed later” box. I’ve used Clockworks, and For the Family on this one. Colours are Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake. (This was also a CASED card…Pinterest is my friend)
The second card that I made with my Mystery Card kit had a base of So Saffron, and I had some scraps of Floral District DSP left. I saw THIS CARD posted by Stampin Up on Pinterest and wanted to use that as a starting point. I started punching some circles, and stamped a dotted background, and it all just came together.
I had some stamping time with my son Graham last week. He wanted to make a card for Daddy, his idol. I was working on this card, and he chose to create his like mine (I guess he likes me a little bit too!). He changed the colours on his, and didn’t add as many layers, but I’m really impressed with his card! Here is what Graham made:
He chose the ribbon, the the brad to add to it. I was so proud of his efforts!
This is My card, the one he was CASing:
This card was another CASE from Pinterest, but the card I saw was all in beiges and neutrals. I changed out the colours and added the blue and red and made it more nautical. I masked off the centre panel with some torn post it notes, sponged and stamped the background then removed the masks. I love this card and would like to make a feminine version in my next stamping session.
I saw another card on Pinterest that resembled this, but once I started CASing it, I switched out so many things that it barely resembles the original anymore. I switched out the DSP, the colours, and the embellishments. In the end, I made two, just reversing the colours:
Which one do you like better?
This was another in my stamping session “inspired by pinterest” day. I’ve used the Countryside stamp set, the First Edition DSP and Gumball Green as my base colour. I stamped the image in Staz On, then watercoloured it in before layering it up.
The greeting is from Petite Pairs, and punched out with the Ticket Punch.
