With the upcoming summer season, I foresee a lot of cotton candy being eaten. Fairs, amusement parks, the zoo….There’s something so iconic about the paper cone with swirled pink, blue or yellow cottony goodness piled on top. I was so excited to see that Avery Elle had a cute stamp set called Cotton Candy with lots of fun greetings—perfect for a summertime birthday!
Happy rainbows and whimsical unicorns are perfect for a little girl’s birthday card. For today’s project, I used a the Mama Elephant Over the Rainbow set that is chock full of whimsical icons perfect for the birthday girl!
Cards with a little bit of an interactive element are always fun to receive. For today’s project, I’m using an action wobble to add some fun movement to a bright and cheerful birthday card.
Birthday cards—you can never have too many on hand especially for those last minute kid parties. My project today is super clean and simple and easy to put together.
Die sets with various sizes of the same shape are great basics to have on hand. You have all kinds of options when you need that perfect sized circle or square or when you want to do precise layering on projects. I especially like when these types of sets have little fun details like stitching, or fun edges. For today’s project, I will be using the Framelits Dotted Tag set from Stephanie Barnard/Sizzix in a few different ways.
For those of us who make handmade cards, we know we can never have too many in the birthday category. I think these are the most fun to make because there is always some element of fun and whimsy involved. Today’s project is pretty clean and simple, but I’ll show you again how movement and color can make all the difference. I used a set from Sizzix called Birthday Wishes along with the balloons from Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set.
