Birthday Party Hat

  Busy day for birthdays! Used one of the blueprint stamps I received has a prize on a blog contest. Will post at the end.

 I made this card for Amanda. She was having an "un-birthday" party/crop at Mel's. I was unable to attend as we were going to a 60th birthday / retirement party, but I did manage to drop in and visit with the girls and give Amanda her gift and card.

  All papers used ad embellies (except sequins), are from the DCWV Vintage Collector collection.

  The inside. Sentiments used here are 4 stamps from various sets in my stash.

The back.

  Before Christmas, I entered a contest a woman had posted on a Facebook page I was following. 

  Long story short, my name was picked at random and I won the most fabulous prize! 

  A Tim Holtz craft apron, signed by Tim and Mario, and the limited edition blueprint stamp set put out by Stampers Anonymous and Simon Says Stamp. She also made a beautiful card!

  I'd like to thank Stephanie for the opportunity to win this. You have made me very happy, and all my crafty friends are green with envy!

A Manly Birthday Card

  Made this for Tyler, Courtney's husband. His birthday was last month, December.
  They just got married this past August. Found this to be a bit of a challenge. 

 I do make manly cards, but, they are for men who are my age or older. Tyler is in his late '20s. I think I may have to get more younger manly crafty "stuff"! Lol! 

  The cupcake stamp is from TH blueprint series. I stamped first on patterned paper, then paper pieced. I also used some "White Perfect Puff" from The Artful Stamper for the icing. The sentiment stamp is also from TH, the "Simple Sayings" set.

  All papers used are Authentique "Suave" collection. Added some black Punchinella (sequin waste), brads that look like screws, and a couple of staples.

  Closeup of the puffy icing. After you apply it you can either let it dry or using your heat tool to make it puffy. I added a bit of brown ink.

  The inside. Sentiment stamps are from an old set.

The back. 

  Well it's a new year! Hope you are spending the first day with your family and friends! Thanks for stopping by!

i made it myself!
