An Oversized Dinosaur Birthday Card for a 2-Year Old

Tenneson

Hello Friends,

My grandson, Tenneson, recently turned 2 and he's coming for a visit!  A 2-year that's so dynamite handsome needs a Big, Big Birthday Card to celebrate his 2nd Birthday.  Let me show you what I whipped up in my stamp room.


Dinosaur Birthday Card for a 2-Year Old

He admired the dinosaur on his recent Valentine that I sent him, so I thought the I would let the Myths & Magic Designer Paper dictate the size of his birthday card.  His Birthday Card measures 6" x & 7", but it sports 3 fabulous dinosaurs for him to admire!  That's the beauty of making handmade cards.  You can make them any size that you want.  Plus, I was able to personalize it to say, "Look Who's Turning 2"!


Milestone Birthday Card

Notice all the dazzle on the dinosaurs and the knights!  I cut the "2" multiple times and stacked them up to make a dimensional 2.  The "Look Who's Turning" stamp is from the Number of Years stamp set.  Hint:  The Number of Years stamp set is photopolymer so I was able to manipulate the stamp to make a curvy script, instead of the half rounded sentiment.  Simply bend and stretch to the shape you want on a block.  I did have a few false starts; my fingers are blue.  But I was determined and in the end, I prevailed.

Enjoy your weekend!  We're taking a long weekend to make Maple Syrup, but I have 2 new video tutorials planned for you next week, so be sure to stop back by.  I love to hear from you.  If you enjoyed today's post, be sure to leave a comment.

Stampin' Up! Blooming Basket Bundle

Blooming Basket Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Have the new Blooming Basket Sale-a-Bration set and Basket Weave embossing folder?   Mr. Brown delivered mine yesterday!  Naturally, I had to play with my new toys.  Today's post includes my first two Blossoming Basket cards. 

For the first Blooming Basket card I used a variation of the Eclipse Technique for the basket.  My heart is embossed with the Basket Weave Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  I colored my flowers with my Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends and my Elegant Eggplant ink.  For a soft touch, I embossed a strip of vellum with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

This lovely scened card with matching envelope was created by Tara Griffin, Stampin' Up!

Karen Gillespie, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Mount Gilead, Ohio, was thinking ahead to Mother's Day.  She made her soft and pretty card with the Petal Palette Bundle.  Like the way she layered popped up pieces over her stamped leaves.  What a lovely combination!

Ann Bloomfield, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Chesterville, Ohio, dazzled us with her Magical Dragon Card.  Ann featured the Myths & Magic Bundle.  She really dazzled us with her addition of sparkling Myths & Magic Washi tape to the top and bottom of her fun card.
