Silhouette Birthday Swing Card for Operation Write Home

Hi,

I have been busy making cards for Operation Write Home.  This week’s challenge was to make a card with a fun fold.  I chose a swing birthday cake card that I  got from the 2013-02-21 13.54.42 on-line store.  I decorated the front of the card with Tim Holtz distress inks.  I used the cut outs for the cake as masks for the front.   The icing layer on the front of the card was a  Martha Stewart stamp I purchased during Halloween. I love using my stash for things other than what they were intended for.  I used Recollections paper for the base and2013-02-21 13.53.36 insi2013-02-21 13.54.26de of the card.  I added a little stickles to the candles on the front.

I had a lot of fun making this card.

Dynamic Duos Color Challenge

2013-02-20 20.36.29Hi,

I made this card for the Dynamic Duo’s color challenge. We were to use the color combination turquoise and black. It is hard to see in my picture but the outfits were colored with turquoise and black. The stamps are from Close to My Heart.  I used Tombow dual brush pens and Recollections paper. I love the sentiment. It is sooo true. LOL

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

I made these cards for Operation Write Home’s blog hop. We were to use a winter theme to make cards that our heroes could use to send home to their love ones.  The first one is made using  Close to My Heart winter sentiment and snowflakes from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I used liquid pearls to decorate the snowflakes and the ink was one of Megan’s little juicy stamp pads from Above Rubbies Studio.  I love the way the colors match. I added a little stickles to the bottom snowflake and popped up the sentiment and center snowflake to add demension.

The second card was made using the same cartridge and stamp set.  Only this time I used the OWH sketch 139 as my inspiration.  The pattern paper is from Recollections.  I used the liquid pearls again to add demension and sparkle and popped up the center snowflake.

I hope you are enjoying the card hop. Please consider joining us in making cards for our heroes. It is our way of saying thankyou and letting them know we care.  Feel free to leave a comment. I love reading them.
