Birthday cards!

I had to work on some birthday cards for another order. The goal was to keep them simple, not too many layers. So here is what I came up with.

I must say I am absolutely in love with this first card. I am not sure if I can part with it. If I do, I hope it is cherished and loved. :)

STAMPS: Cupcakeabella (Stamping Bella), Sentiment (Rubber Soul)
PAPER: White (PTI)
INK: Noir (Palette)
OTHER: Ribbon (Michael's), Stardust Stickles, Red marker (Prismacolor)

This card was actually created due to a mistake I made trying to create the card above. I put the sentiment on the wrong side so it wouldn't work with the Bella. I improvised and used my large cupcake stamp.

STAMPS: Cupcake (Just Johanna), Sentiment (Rubber Soul)
PAPER: White (PTI), Pink Passion (SU)
INK: Noir (Palette)
OTHER: Dazzling Diamonds (SU), Glue Pen, Ribbon (Michael's)

I think my stamping mojo was with me today and I also had cupcakes on the brain. I just love this new image I got from Stamping Bella.

STAMPS: Cupcakes (Stamping Bella), Sentiment (Studio G)
PAPER: White (PTI), Lavendar Lace (SU), Almost Amethyst (SU)
INK: Noir (Palette)
OTHER: Spots & Dots Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Almost Amethyst and Lavendar Lace markers (SU), Stardust Stickles

Here is one of my "goto" simple cards using Stampin' Up's Big Blossom.

STAMPS: Big Blossom (SU), Sentiment (MFT)
PAPER: White (PTI)
INK: Cameo Coral (SU), Noir (Palette)
OTHER: Black marker, Stardust Stickles

This card I am not so sure about. So I figured I'd post it for a review. It did not turn out like I had envisioned.

STAMPS: Reason to Smile (SU), Sentiment (TAC)
PAPER: White (PTI)
INK: Regal Rose (SU)
OTHER: Frills Embossing Border (Cuttlebug), Stardust Stickles, Rhinestones (Michael's)
