Many Birthday Cards!!

 Hi Friends,  since my last post I have made several homemade birthday cards for friends and family.  I really love making a personalized birthday card when I have the time. I try to pick a theme that has meaning for the recipient or their favorite colors etc.    Here are some of the birthday cards I've made in the last few months. 



This card uses the Forever Blossoms stamp set from Stampin Up and I used an embossing folder to create leaves on the light green paper (Soft Seafoam). This card is for a family member that loves flowers, espeically pink flowers.  I stamped the flowers, colored them, and then cut them out. 



This is a birthday card that I made for a customer. I used a weave style embossing folder for the background and the birds and flowers are carefully cut out.  This image is from Stampin Up's Free As a Bird set. 


This is another card I made for a customer for a young boy's birthday. This boy loves the LA Rams football team, so that is what inspired my design for this card. I dug into my older stamps for these football stamps. Some stamp sets I keep forever when I know I will always have a use for them.  



This card is for the same young man who also loves to fish.



This card was so fun to make.  This is a retired stamp set from Stampin Up called Follow Your Dreams. I purchased this specifically to make a card for my daughter. She loves positive sayings and dream catchers. Her room is pink and green so I used these colors so if she wanted to display this card in her room, it would match the decor in her room. I added a lot of bling to this card including pearls and gold embossing.  She really loved this card!






This is another retired stamp set from Stampin Up called Best Catch that I bought knowing I would get lots of use since we have so many friends and family who love to fish.  I used several different techniques in this card including the embossed layer for the background and coloring with marker blends for the water and the rainbow trout.  My dad came to visit us just before his birthday and we got to take him out on the water for some fishing fun so this card was perfect for him.  He loves to fish. 



and finally, this is another birthday card for my dad.  He loves horses even more than fishing.
