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.

When creating projects, sometimes keeping it simple can really pack a punch with the right product.  For these easy wine bottle tags, I took a simple design and brought it up a notch using holographic embossing powder and some brush-lettered stamps.

Creating clean and graphic cards can be really easy with just one or two stamps used to make a pattern.  For today’s project, I’m using an oldie but goodie from Basic Grey and experimenting with metallic pencils to see the different looks I can get.
