A Motorcycle Birthday!

For this week we have a fun sketch challenge.  Pressed for time because of the holidays I created this card with My Digital Studio.  I love the Mocha Morning Designer Series digital paper.  The Crumb Cake and Early Espresso colors make this a very masculine card

Haunted House Happy Birthday Halloween Card

This week’s color challenge of Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo and Early Espresso at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to make this birthday card for my father.  His birthday is on Halloween so every year I make card for him.  My card is based on the gate fold card.  I marked 1″ on the top and on the side then cut the top at an angle for the roof.  I used the Large Scallop Edgelits Die for the shingles and sponged around the edges of the card with Early Espresso to add some spooky shadowing.

To add dimension to the bat, booo, and sentiment I embossed them.

A Happy Birthday Haunted House!

How time flies!  My dad is celebrating his 75th birthday today, October 31st.  I created this haunted house birthday card complete with ghosts and bats.  The card is based on the gate fold card.  I cut the top of the card to look like roofs and shingled them using my Scallop border punch.  I used the 1-1/4 inch Square Punch for the window and added the strips for window panes.  The shingles I created with Basic Black and layered with a smaller piece of Whisper White and drew the shutters with a black marker.  It was a lot of fun creating this card.

For the inside of the card I decorated it with a ghost, spider webs and a lollie.  I used My Digital Studio to create the sentiment then punched it out with the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.

Happy Birthday Cake Slice Box

Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday and I made him a cake slice box.  I put photos of  me and our fur babies inside the box wishing him a happy birthday.  The challenge was in trying to decorate the box in a masculine way.  I was inspired by The Paper Players Color Challenge – Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Early Espresso.  These colors are so rich together and masculine.  I am also submitting my cake slice to Piece ‘O Cake Paper Craft Planet 3D challenge.

I made my cake box from Early Espresso  card stock then covered with DSP printed from My Digital Studio – Cherry Cobbler polka dot and Not Quite Navy Villa DSP.   I trimmed a 1-1/4″ strip of Early Espresso with the Eyelet Border punch and adhered to the lid.  I also used the retired Take a Spin stamp set , Striped Early Espresso ribbon and Birthday Banner to decorate the top.  I couldn’t resist and added clear rhinestones to the banner and the sides of the box.  I also used an Antique brad for the back.

I also used My Digital Studio to print the photos and then used the 2-3/8 inch circle punch.  I attached the photos with mini glue dots to 1/4″ Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon.  I adhered each end with mini glue dots.
