As a card maker, I am drawn to bright, cheerful colors. Mostly white card bases with pops of pinks, mint and soft yellows. There are times though, when I need to make a masculine-style card. This is where the richer colors come in with some darker accents. For today’s project, I’m using a background die from Avery Elle called Waves for a quick and easy masculine birthday card. Balloons from Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set are heat embossed with rich colors that complement the neutral background.
As summer draws closer, so does kids’ birthday party season. I have a great way to get yourself prepared with a ready made card and tag set using a simple 6 x 6 patterned paper pad and a fun interactive die. Patterned paper pads are great because you have everything you need to make quick DIY crafts with little effort. All the fun colors and even some sentiments are right there for you to cut and paste! For my projects today, I used the Sizzix Stephanie Barnard Framelits Card Drop In-Thank You die set along with the Pebbles Happy Hooray 6×6 paper pad. I also used some large and small pre-made white tags.

My daughter’s first birthday is quickly approaching, I can’t believe how quickly time flies. While Pinteresting one day for ideas for her party, I saw these crowns and just knew she HAD to have one, plus it gave me a chance to use those iron-on glitter sheets I have been eyeing for awhile.
