Belated Birthday Wishes

I made this card using mainly My Favourite Things
Blueprints 18.  The pattern paper layer is adhered
with foam tape to add dimension.  I stamped MFT Spotlight
Sentiments on the silvery/grey layer and the sentiment is Paper
Smooches.  I added another die cut from Blueprints 18 and a button 
from my stash.  I layered the front panel onto yellow card before
adding it to the card base.

Under The Weather?

I began this card by applying embossing paste to a piece of
vellum using a MFT stencil.  While waiting for that to dry I
prepared the other elements of the card.

I stamped and embossed the first sentiment on a grey piece of
card and the second on a label shape.  The clouds were cut
from wool felt and the sun is a pierced circle.

I adhered the elements to each other and then added them to the 
vellum layer with foam tape. I added a blue layer before attaching
it all to a white card.

Birthday Bear

I created the layers of this card with MFT Blueprints 15, Pierced
Circles and Taylored Expressions Bloomin' Stacklets 2.  I then
stamped my Mama Elephant images and coloured them with 
pencils and Gamsol. 

I put the card together using foam adhesive for the elements to add 
dimension.  I wrapped a piece of vellum onto which I had stamped
and embossed a Paper Smooches sentiment and added a few die
cut stars in white.  I finished by adding Wink of Stella to the stars
and balloon.

Gift Card

I began today by cutting Memory Box Tulip Bouquet die twice, once
in red and once in green.  I used the tulip cuts to allow me to 
figure out the placement for my Mama Elephant sentiment.  The 
tulips were then adhered along with a few sequins.

The inside of the card, which I forgot to photograph, was layered with
a Mama Elephant Femme Frame from which I cut a MFT Gift Card Groove.
I also stamped a sentiment above the inserted gift card.

Hey There

I began this card by stamping and embossing some of the 
flowers from Lawn Fawn Flutter By set.  I then 
watercoloured using distress inks.  While they were drying
I created the rest of the card.

I made a shaker element using circle dies, foam tape, acetate
and sequins then added a striped paper from a Lawn Fawn 
paper pad.  I die cut the flowers and leaves and adhered them
then finished with a sentiment and a few more sequins.

Birthday Cupcake

The sun was shining when I started making this card so I was
inspired to pick sunshine yellow cardstock.  It started raining
about 10 minutes later!

Anyway, I began with the cupcake. Using Mama Elephant stamps
and dies I stamped and cut the cupcake base and cut the top
from a sheet of Lawn Fawn paper.  I added the base flat onto a circle cut
using MFT Pierced Circles and the layered that onto a Bloomin' Stacklets 2
die cut from Taylored Expressions.

 For the white layer I used Taylored Expressions Curly border die to add
interest.  I then stamped my sentiment, adhered everything and finished
 with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Lemon Drop.
