Birthday card for Mette

My friend Mette celebrated her birthday in the end of January, so I made her this card also with papers from Maja Designs new collection "Celebration":
I used lots of different papers from the 6x6 paperpad, the image is also from that. I distressed the edges and some of them got embossed with some silver embossing powder. I only used one die, which is the "Intricate Doily" from Intricut. The lace and halfpearls are from my stash.

I'm participating in Maja Designs moodboard challenge, this is their moodboard:

Birthday card for my Godfather

February first my Godfather turned 83, so I made him this card using papers from Maja Designs new collection "Celebration".
I have used papers from the 6x6 paperpad, and mainly the dark colors since it is a male card.

I have used dies from Spellbinders Matting Basics 6x6 and Scalloped Borders One, and the banner is from Marianne Design. The gears are from Kaisercraft and inked with Distress Ink "Walnut Stain", flowers from WOC, cheesecloth and halfpearls from my stash. I don't know which brand the stamp is.

With this card I participate in Maja Designs January-Februare challenge. Here is their moodboard:

Girly birthday cards

A couple of weeks ago I was trying out the letterpress technique, and I got these two very girly cards out of that:

For both cards I have used the letterpress technique using a Memento ink called "Rose Bud" and an embossing folder from Crafts Too. For the top card I only used dies from China, for the bottom one I used a die from Spellbinders "Elegant Ovals", Sue Wilsons "Melbourne" and a Chinese die. The flowers are from WOC and the ribbon and halfpearls are from my stash.

Birthday card for Lone

Today it is my friend Lone's birthday, so I made her a card and hopefully it arrived on time. I recently purchased some new dies, so it was the perfect occasion for trying one of the new ones. Here's the card:
The background paper is from Maja Designs "Summertime" collection. I used all 3 dies from Spellbinders "Oval Ironwork". The large one I cut out twice, glued together and sprayed with "Rudolphs nose red" from Lindys Stamp Gang, the other 2 I cut out in silver cardstock, the smallest die was also cut out twice. I added some cheesecloth, halfpearls, and flowers from WOC, some of them I colored with "Rudolphs nose red".

4 birthday cards

My son went to a birthday party yesterday. It was 4 of his classmates who celebrated their birthdays together, so he needed 4 cards. I decided to use some of my scrap pieces from Maja Design. All the papers I have used are from their Christmas/Winter collections.

These are the cards for the two boys. Here I used star-dies from Crealies.

And these are the cards for the 2 girls. Here I used the Make-a-Wish die from Spellbinders D-lites and the banner is from Marianne Design. Here I also inked the edges with Vintage Photo from Distress Ink. 

I made the cards very similar, just switched the papers around so that the cards didn't become identical.

Bokeh confirmation cards

Like many others I have also started working on confirmation cards now. I wanted to try something different and new (at least for me) so I decided to try the bokeh technique, and I am quite pleased with how the cards turned out:

I have used Distress Ink on all of the cards to make the background and also sprayed a little water on the background. Afterwards I used a stencil from Dutch Doobadoo together with a VersaMagic ink to make the circles. I matted the backgrounds with black cardstock, which i also used for the banners. The boy and the girl a cut with a DixiCraft die, the banner is from Card Making Magic, and the stamp is also from DixiCraft.
