Uncle Nig's Birthday Card 2020


Our Uncle Nig celebrated his birthday earlier this week.

This was the card that I made for him using the same papers to make the background that I used in these Valentine's and our Uncle Jim's birthday card.

I used Fancy Pants Timber Grove 6 x 6 paper pad with BoBunny Double Dot Cardstock & MFT's cardstock.

To make the background, I used Jaded Blossom's Triangle Card Mat Die and MFT's Oval Dies for the front sentiment.

I used the following stamps: Birthday - CTMH From Me to You stamp set; hello - Picket Fence stamp set; line of stars - CTMH's New Beginnings stamp set; sending - CTMH's For Family stamp set and for the rest of the inside sentiment - My Creative Time stamp set.

Happy Birthday Jim!





Happy Birthday Uncle Jim!

Today is my Uncle Jim's Birthday, but I saw him a couple of days ago & gave him his card & candy.

Many years ago, I found out that my uncle doesn't really care for hugs. So, that became our thing. Every time I see him, he hopes I will forget to hug him & I make a point of giving him a hug.

So, I try to make his birthday card full of hugs as well. I really succeeded this year. I even have the perfect HUGS stamp that fits nicely on an A2 envelope.

I used Fancy Pants Timber Grove 6 x 6 Paper Pad with BoBunny Double Dot Cardstock & MFT Cardstock.

I used Jaded Blossom's Triangle Card Mat Die to make the background & MFT's Heart Dies.

I used Close To My Heart's Hostess Reward Stamp Set - For Your Heart & Jaded Blossom's So Many Birthdays 4 for the word "birthday".

I made this 5 x 7 "Thinking of You" card to participate in Jaded Blossoms' Monthly Blog Challenge.

Mom & Dad's Valentine 2020


This is the Valentine's Day Card that I made for my parents.

Well, I also have a stack of 6 x 6 CTMH paper samples that I am trying to use up.

All the papers, stamps & thin cuts used on this card are from Close To My Heart; except for the Doodlebug Enamel White Hearts on the front of the card.

TJ's Valentine's Day Card 2020


This is the Valentine's Day Card that I made my 8 year old son, TJ.

Once I saw this stamp set, I just had to have it to make my son a card or two.

TJ loves colours, he likes unicorns & what boy doesn't like farts!

I had a BLAST making this card & had just as much fun watching his face light up when he saw the card & then listening to him read the inside sentiment.

I used Doodlebug Designs patterned papers, BoBunny Double Dot cardstock, MFT's Stitched Dies, CTMH's Heart Thin Cuts on the front of the card, CC Design's Unicorn Stamp Set & Dies, CTMH's Beloved Bouquet stamp set for "Happy Valentine's Day" & Cartwright's Moonshine sequins.

Copic Markers used: B000, B02, B24, B29, C0, Y17, YG25 & YR16.
