Cole’s Freakin’ Birthday card

Hello everyone! Monica here to share a card that was actually made by my son Cole. His girlfriends birthday is actually today (the 12th). I’m I cheating by posting the card? I mean I did assist, he wouldn’t have known where to start without my assistance!

coles freakin' birthday card

How romantic right! I did help but really only a little he did all the stamping himself, while I did the cutting and embossing. For the stamping he used a dark gray, but stamped it off to lighten the color so the main sentiment would stand out.

I hope you enjoyed seeing Cole’s card, and hope his girlfriend likes it too! It was a joy to have in my craft room and making a card with me. Thanks to all for stopping by and have a great day!

Design Team Call and Birthday Messages Candles

Hi, friends, it’s Chark again today with a card and details on our Design Team Call.

The birthday card I made uses washi tape and sentiment stamps. I used a white panel of cardstock and stamped the small Happy Birthday sentiment sideways to mimic candles. I added some flames with markers.


I used the larger Happy Birthday sentiment as the focal point and then used three different washi tapes to add a colorful line at the top of the panel. I inked the edges of a white card with the same Strawberry ink as I used to stamp the candles. And that was it!

aLove this Birthday Messages stamp set, it’s got a lot of great stamps you’re sure to use.

Hope you’ll join in our May Challenge Sentiment Focus and use your Hero Arts sentiment stamps as the focus of your card.

Please stop by my blog Glitter In My Kitchen for some more ideas.

Double Embossing

NOTICE: It looks like we’re having a bit of trouble with our InLinkz Link-up on our blog.  It seems to have a mind of its own and disappeared from the side-bar.  However, it found a home on the first day of March here.  The DT are trying to put it back where it came from, but until you see it in the usual place on the top right side, you’ll be able to enter here.

Hi there.  Dawn here to inspire you with some embossing.  I chose to do some dry embossing using some of my folders.  I also used a diffuser to do some double embossing.  I made my embossing the focus of my card and finished with a Hero Arts sentiment.


I used the difuser to emboss the swirl background and then again for the second frame folder by Inside Out by Teapaper Crafts. I stamped the sentiment from CL738 “Messages with a Flourish”.  Please note this stamp set is no longer available, but check out some of the fabulous sentiment stamps available at the A2Z Scrapbooking Esty store (here)  I finished off my card with some daisies and a dragonfly brad.

And don’t forget to join us in the Embossing challenge this month.  Please be sure that your project contains at least ONE main HERO ART stamp, stencil or die cut as the focal element!
