Celebration cards for kids

The new challenge theme at Send A Smile 4 Kids is "Celebration Cards for Kids". I guess a birthday is just about every kid's favorite day to celebrate, so I made this card.  I love this digi by Tiddly Inksl I had so much fun coloring her hair and paper piecing her outfit. Also, this is the first time I've used the Wonky Stitch frame dies, which also come with the sentiment banner and two cute tiny tags!

Here's my birthday card:

Digi stamp: "Faythe Flies" by Tiddly Inks Stamps
Copic sketch markers
Sentiment: Reverse Confetti
Frame, tag and banner: Wonky Stitch dies by Avery Elle
DP: Belle Vie 6x6 pad by Julie Nutting

Frame It!

Hi! The new challenge starting today at Cards In Envy is to use a frame somehow on your card! I thought of a beautiful set of 3 frame stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs that I've hardly ever used. (FYI: they have several very nice frame type stamps, some on sale!!)  I stamped the frame over a pretty vintage image from Digital Two for Tuesday (love those old Gibson Girl images!) I punched up the coloring on my frame with a black Copic marker and Old Paper Distress Ink.

I love doing vintage and I like showing how vintage can be flat for standard mailing, which is what Cards In Envy is all about (I always thank my almost six years of OWH training!):

Focal image: Digital Two for Tuesday
Frame stamp: Our Daily Bread Designs "Elegant Ovals" (set of 3)
Copic marker: Special Black
Ranger Distress Ink (Old Paper)
Sentiment and punches: Stampin' Up
DP: Teresa Collins "World Traveler" 6x6 and My Mind's Eye "Madison Avenue" 6x6
Be sure to go back and take a look at our Design Team's inspiration cards; there is always a great variety of styles! You have two weeks to join in the fun and I can't wait to see what you create. Please leave a comment so I will know you stopped by. It means a lot to me!

"Snow People" challenge

Joining in the fun at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, where the new theme is "Snow People" (use multiple snowmen).

I looked at a lot of snow people digis and fell in love with this one from Dearie Dolls! I think it's unique and sweet. Also, a friend of mine just had her second baby the other day and I think this digi would make a perfect Christmas card for them!
