Make your own background at STB

Hi there!

This week you have the opportunity to show us a beautiful background... created by YOU!

But... we want you to have fun even if you don't feel like making a BG, so feel free to link up any newly created birthday card!

I am showing you my first attempt at... BOKEH !

I had so much fun doing this, I will definitely try it again!




I didn't want to hide my BG, so I only added a birthday greeting from HERO arts.


What will you create... I can't wait to see!


Thanks for visiting me today!



CAS(E) this sketch #120

Hi there!


I know this week's CAS(E) this sketch by Gayatri will spark your creativity!



A great opportunity to get out those stencils for a subtle (or not so) background for your focal point!






I used a Spellbinders Impressabilities stencil , sponged with peeled paint distress ink from Tim Holtz.

I can't remember the origin of the flower and leaf dies.

Hello stamp from Casual fridays.


Hope to see your card in the gallery this week!

Thanks for visiting me today!

CAS(E) this sketch #119

Hi there!

Just take a look at this fabulous sketch N@Ali has for us this week at your favorite sketch challenge:

CAS(E) this sketch :



I went for a literal interpretation of the sketch with this card:



I use the offset function to create the 3 layers in my Silhouette program.

The sentiment is my own, I save it in case you want to use it in the future (2 ways) :





Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Tall & skinny for Seize the Birthday

Hi there!

The optional twist this week at Seize the birthday, is to make a tall & skinny card.

For sure it's only an option, and you can join the fun with any newly created Birthday card!

My card is a little skinnier than normal, not so much taller though!







I use an cutting file from the silhouette on-line store (altered).

I added some shimmery textured paper and a few gems to jazz it up!

Sentiment stamp from Uniko studios.

Hope to see you in the STB gallery!





CAS(E) this sketch #118

Hi there!

Are you ready for a new challenge?

Then look no further than HERE!




This is my take on Chrissy's lovely bold sketch:



My card ended up looking like a faux shaker card... LOL... do you get something like that?

The sequin stamp is from Uniko studios. I colored it with markers, and added a wink of stella for the shimmery look.
Sentiment from a hero arts set ( which I LOVE )


Thanks for visiting me... Hope to see you in the gallery this week!

No Toppings at Seize the Birthday!

Hi there!

Yes, this week anything BIRTHDAY related goes at Seize the birthday !!!

Here's my card to invite and inspire you to play along:




I used some scraps and a very old postage stamp punch to create my background, and a postage mark stamp I've had forever!

The sentiment is new however, and I will share it with you:
