Birthday Cards

Last night and today I've been a little crafty again and made a couple of cards. The process seems to be a bit slow at the moment, but at least I'm getting finished. I thought I needed to create a bit of a stash of birthday cards for the upcoming months, but instead I sold both of them today to one of the mums at school. I guess I'll have to create some more.

This one I made last night:

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper + Labels: October Afternoon (The Thrift Shop) | Ribbon: MemrieMare on Etsy + Making Memories | Scalloped Circle Punch: Marvy Uchida | Pearl Buckle: | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Birthday Bash Sentiments + Fancy Flourishes) | Ink: Staz'On (Jet Black) + Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy) | Border Punch: EK Success

The next card I made today on which I used the Martha Stewart Lace Die Tags, which arrived in the post this morning. I love happy post.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: October Afternoon (Fly a Kite) | Lace Die Tag: Martha Stewart | Felt: Arts & Crafts | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Birthday Bash Sentiments + Fancy Flourishes + Fillable Frames 5) | Ink: Stampin'Up (Turquoise) + Staz'On (Timber Brown) + Rangers Distress Ink (Antique Linen) | Dies: Papertrey Ink (Flower + Leaf + Medium Scallop) | Ribbon: American Crafts.

I'm really in the mood for crafting at the moment, but I'm gearing myself up for make either a layout or a mini album, but something is stopping me and I'm not quite sure what. I think I just need to take the plunge and do it. What do you think?

Both cards are gorgeous, Lisette. I made a card and gift card holder with the same papers today, but can't show them yet. I see you already received the latest PTI stamps. Lucky you! Mine arrived at Dutch customs last Friday, but haven't been cleared yet.

Ooo these are lovely. I've got onto your blog through my sister in law, Dr. Anthea. :) I've been looking into getting some papertrey ink inks and stamps. Can you please tell me how the inks go on darker cardstock- how's the converage? thanks :)

ooo that's good to know. Thank you for getting back to me. I'll have to keep my eyes open on your blog to check when they're back to normal :) Thanks again.
