A Birthday Card

You will never have too many pre-made birthday and thank-you cards on hands because it's very easy to send out these cards to friends and families. I made this birthday card which can be sent to either female or male recipients. Here is the card I made.

I used Paper Smooches' Cyber Cafe set to stamp the mugs in different colors and stamp the steam on the last mug. Then, I stamped the "celebrate" from the Sentiment Sampler set and each letter of "birthday" (from Alphadot set) onto each mug. The final touch is to apply the clear glitter pen on each mug to make them shiny. 

Here is a closer look of these shiny mugs:

I would like to have this card to attend Paper Smooches Sparks Picture Perfect challenge of this week. Here is the challenge:

Since it's a clean & simple birthday card, I can also attend the Addicted to CAS#13 birthday challenge as well. Here is the challenge:

Cardstocks: PTI, Stampin' Up
Stamps: Paper Smooches
Ink Pads: Archival ink pad (black), Memento (all the colors)
Others: clear glitter pen

Happy Everything - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC100

Here is CAS-ual Fridays' 2nd birthday and 100th challenge. I picked the kraft, bling, and emboss from the Tic Tac Toe. Here is the challenge:

And I made this card - Happy Everything for this challenge. Here is the card:

I used the kraft cardstock as the background, then stamped the houses and white embossed them. The front row of houses is the clear stamp from Technique Tuesday, the back rows of houses is the clear stamp from Amy Tangerine. The clouds (also from Amy Tangerine) and "happy everything" text (from Paper Smooches) are also white embossed. Finish the card with yellow, blue, purple, and diamond glitter glues on the houses & clouds, as well as the gems around the text. 

Cardstocks: PTI (kraft & cream)
Stamps: Technique Tuesday, Amy Tangerine, and Paper Smooches
Ink Pads: Stampin' Up (white)
Others: white embossing powder, glitter glues, gems.

You Are Special - The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge

Watercolor effect is always my old time favorite and it's not easy to make it wrong. For stampers, we can achieve watercolor effect not only with real watercolor paints, but also with lots of different stamping supplies. Here is the card I made for the Wonder of Watercolor Challenge on Moxie Fab World:

I used the stamp set of Watercolor Wonder from Papertrey Ink to stamp the stokes with Distress ink pads (with water mist). Then, I stamped and colored the fish with Inktense watercolor pencils. The fish had been cut out and applied the foam dots to the background. I stamped the text "You're special" and black embossed it. Finish the card with enamel dots.

Cardstocks: PTI (blue), watercolor paper (white)
Stamps: PTI (Watercolor Wonder set), Paper Smooches (fish & text)
Ink Pads: Distress ink pads, Archival ink pad (black), VersaFine ink pad (black)
Others: Inktense watercolor pencils, black embossing powder, foam dots, enamel dots
