Birthday wishes

I haven't used this set in some time and when I got it out I decided to use both stamped images in the set for two upcoming birthdays, of course I had to change up the cards so they weren't done exactly the same :)

I went with the colors of paper I picked out, it's funny, I sometimes color first and then go through all my papers trying to find something that could go with it and other times I pick out the papers and then use those colors for my coloring, I think it all depends on my mood when I go in to create.

Hampton Art - SCO722 stamp, colored w/markers
Teresa Collins - Tell your story paper
Spellbinders - Classic Rectangles die and A2 Scalloped borders two die
Nuvo Crystal glaze for the berries
Whimsy Stamps - Simple sentiments stamp
Queen & co. - Blue Jelly gems

The next one I used a card sketch for my layout but never wrote down where I found it, sorry.

Hampton Art - SCO722 stamp, colored w/markers
DCWV - Linen Closet papers
PPD - A2 Stitched Banner die set
Nuvo - Crystal glaze on berries

Hope you had a good weekend, we had a few very heavy rains with flooding out back and out front, we have a mess to clean up but we may get more tonight so we are waiting to clean it up, don't want to have to do it twice, specially with the HOT and Humid temps we have right now.

Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by today,

Connie your cards are so special . . . I know that they are treasured by all that receive them, including me.
You're a dear blogging friend, thank you for caring.

I do the same thing -- alternate between coloring first and then picking papers, and picking papers and coloring to match!
Both of your cards turned out so cute --- those are some fun images!!

Such beauties! I love all the detail in the stamp and you've colored it so nicely - it reminds me a bit of stained glass! I love the layouts you've used, too ~ wonderful!

Oh, Connie, I love both your cards so much! The stamps are so much fun and you did a beautiful job coloring them. I'm like you... sometimes I color and then try to match up, sometimes I choose the paper first. I think it's always easier and quicker when it comes time to make the card if I choose the paper first. Hugs!

Great stamps which you’ve coloured beautifully. Both look good against the papers you’ve chosen.
