A Kiddie Birthday!

These cards are two of my favorite of the bunch. They are quick cards for a kids birthday. I had to think really hard of how to arrange the ribbon on the boys card so as to not make it too girlie so I decide to add some twine to "man it up" a bit:-) The ladies enjoyed making these cards last Friday at the Open House.

The birthday cards were created using The Wild About You stamp set.
cardstock: pretty in pink, whisper white, Tea Party designer series paper OR Bashful Blue, Whisper White, and the Sale-A-Bration designer series paper (can't remember the name)
Ink: Basic Black with Pretty in Pink OR Bashful Blue
Accessories: Regal Rose Ribbon, Brocade Blue, and natural twine

It amazes me of the amount of creativity people bring to the table when they at first declare that they are not creative. A few ladies looked at these birthday cards and wanted to make a neutral new baby card instead. So as we discussed how we could do it with my limited supplies. Keep in mind this Open House was not at my home. We looked at some of the other cards I had designed for the night and decided to change out one image for another in order to achieve this goal.

The new baby card was created through rearranging the Easter card that I had prepared. By chance I had some extra Certainly Celery cardstock and ink and another stamper created her neutral baby card using those supplies. I regret not having my camera with me...I usually do have it... so I was unable to take a picture of it.

The Easter card was created with the An Egg-cellent Easter stamp set.
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Tea Party designer series paper
Ink: Basic Black, Markers (pretty in pink, certainly celery, barely banana, creamy caramel
Accessories: 1/4" grosgrain celery ribbon

Thanks for stopping go stamp something!
