More Birthday Cards

Hello everyone,

I've made some more birthday cards recently. This first one I did using watercolor techniques with Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters DI. The first thing I did was to dye the vintage lace with Spiced Marmalade reinker. The background is a Close to My Heart paper as is the ribbon. You can't tell from this photo but the main flower is three layers thick. I also added some script to the background using Shabby Shutters DI and a Stampabilities script stamp.

On this second card I have used a watercolor technique that I rarely use, watercolor pencils. I used them to paint the cake and the sentiment. The cake stamp is CTMH. The papers are from Stampin Up as is the sentiment. I did some faux stitching using a white pencil and some edge distressing with a brown one.
That's it for now. Thanks for the visit and happy stampin.


  1. Wow! These are so beautiful! Love the tattered edge and crocheted lace on that first one. Great work!

  2. Lela, both cards are beautiful. It looks like you are exploring different styles or maybe you are like me, one day it's one thing and the next day you have moved on to another! Regardless they are both terrific.
