Dreamy Birthday

Posted in It's your Birthday at 9:01 pm by happygiggles

I’m still around!  Although I haven’t been making many cards!  I’m blaming it on the fact that I’m now getting up early for work. (4 am!)  In this situation, my husband gets all my extra energy!  He needs dinner you know. 

But, since it is my Grandma’s birthday tomorrow, I made her a card using the Live your Dream set that I just got!

She loved it!  I gave it to her today since we went for brunch for Mother’s Day and I won’t see her tomorrow.  For this card I started with a blush blossom base then added some River Rock and some patterned paper out of my Costco slab.  I used river rock and groovy guava ink for the stamped flower image.  I think I’m going to put Blush blossom ink on my wish list.  I really like that colour!  The butterfly is stamped in chocolate chip on the same patterned paper with Close to Cocoa underneath.  Before I attached the stamped images, I added some white satin ribbon to the scalloped River Rock piece.  the final touch was the two rhinestones!

Stamps: Live your Dream, birthday sentiment from Stamping Bella
Paper: Blush blossom, river rock, whisper white, close to cocoa, patterned paper from Costco slab
Ink: Chocolate chip, River Rock, Groovy guava
Accessories: white ribbon, rhinestones, scalloped scissors, circle punches

Back to normal?

Whew!  What a week I had last week!  My mother in law was staying with us for a few days before she made a big move a few provinces over to live closer to my sister in law.  Needless to say my normal routine was a bit off!  But things are looking like they’ll be back to normal this week!  Over the weekend I managed to go out and buy a few plants to put into my containers.  I didn’t buy much because there is still the possibility of frost.  This year I really wanted to buy some herbs so that I can just pull some off when I need it!  Can’t wait!

Onto a card!  I haven’t been making much lately but I do have a Mother’s Day card to show you!


Very soft looking.  I used river rock for the card base and stamped the little flowers from Boho backgrounds on the top.  Next I layered some blush blossom with some Chocolate chip and Very Vanilla.  I tied a sheer pink ribbon around those layers before I attached them.  The final layers are the scalloped circle and more Very Vanilla with the sentiment stamped in chocolate chip.  I added a bit of Stickles to all the scalloped pieces!  Because I love sparkle so much!


Stamps: Boho Backgrounds, Blooming with Love
Paper: River rock, Very vanilla. chocolate chip, blush blossom
Ink: Versamark, chocolate chip
Accessories: pink sheer ribbon, scallop punch, circle punch, scalloped scissors, Stickles
