An {AUTUMN BIRTHDAY} Card

I'm playing along with a sketch challenge and a photo inspiration challenge today.  I decided to use the Fall colors and patterns from the inspiration photo to make a birthday card using products from Reverse Confetti.  :)


I wanted a more clean + simple card this time, so I stamped the main image in orange ink instead of coloring it in.  I followed that look with the surrounding images of presents and the flag.   It's always a struggle for me to make masculine cards, but I think this one turned out ok!

A bit of bling and cuteness that everyone likes, right?


I layered it all onto some die-cut pieces and finished it off with some sparkly sequins and a stamped birthday sentiment.  The patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn.

I used the following products from Reverse Confetti:

{A CHEEKY HALLOWEEN}

I'm definitely not finished making my Halloween cards, which is pretty lame since I never actually send them out... they're just my favorites to make!  I should probably do something with them...

I wanted to play along with the current color challenge from The Greeting Farm, so I grabbed an older (retired) set called Cheeky Cherry:  Naughty or Nice and got to work!


I stamped her onto watercolor paper and watercolored her with Distress Ink, water, and a paintbrush.  I trimmed her out and added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen.


I surrounded her with a bunch of stamps and die cuts from Reverse Confetti and some beautiful paper flowers from I Am Roses.  I bought these colors specifically for Halloween cards... black roses?  Yes please!  :)
