Seize the Birthday

It's time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday. There is no "Topping" this week so we would love to see any birthday card that you create.

Yes that is means.....anything goes!!
Here is my card.
I used the January card kit from Paper Bakery. It is still available in the store and I have to tell you that I love it so head over and check it out!
I stamped the background with a Hero Arts background stamp and clear embossed it. Love the extra texture.

More Love Potion

More of the Love Potion #9 Card Kit that is from Paper Bakery. You've already seen 2 cards that I made with this kit and here are 3 more.

This first card uses one of the free cut files "xoxo" that you get when you order the kit as a member. I love that floral paper from the Pebbles paper pad.
I added some of these resin hearts from the store and ended up with a sweet Valentine card.

Here is a little closeup of the cut file.

On this next card I used another one of the cut files....the heart....and made it the focal point.
Some enamel dots, flair from the kit and some heart sequins that I believe came in a previous kit and a bit of machine stitching and I had another Valentine Card.

This last card shows that you can use the kit for more than a lovey dovey card. I used some of the more masculine papers from the paper pad and some of the awesome Crate stickers and I now have a card ready for my Dad's birthday!

I highly recommend getting this kit before they are sold out!!

Hearts and Birthdays

There is a new challenge up at Seize the Birthday.

The "toppings" for this challenge is "hearts".

Of course if you don't feel like using the toppings  an "anything goes" birthday card is perfectly fine!
I knew that I had this awesome gold foil heart paper so that is how my card started.
Other than the SU cardstock everything else is from the Teresa Collins "You Are My Happy" collection.
I sure hope that you will join us for this challenge at Seize The Birthday!

Subway Art with Paper Bakery

I was up on the Paper Bakery blog the other day with a card using the Love Potion #9 card kit. I used the rub ons in the kit to make subway art the focal point.

You and Me!

I have a cute Valentine's Day card to share with you today. I used the January card kit from Paper Bakery called Love Potion #9 and also one of the die cut shapes that you get for free when you have a kit membership.

Wonder who will get this card in the mail?
Have a great Monday everyone!
