Butterfly Birthday Wishes by Larissa Heskett

Butterfly Birthday Wishes by Larissa Heskett | Butterflies Stencil Set, Birthday Oval Stamp Set and Frames & Flags Die Set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade

Butterfly Birthday!

Today we are sharing a gorgeous butterfly birthday card by Larissa!

To create the beautiful butterfly filled background Larissa used our two piece Butterflies Stencil Set. This set features one layer of solid butterfly silhouettes and one with the wing pattern so you can easily create two color patterns. She used orange dimensional paste with the second layer to create this beautiful effect! She also added some paint splatters and orange sequins to add extra details! 

She framed her butterfly background with a black scallop edged frame that was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set. The birthday greeting was stamped from our Birthday Oval Stamp Set and was embossed in white onto a rounded rectangle shape that was cut out using a die from our A7 Frames & Banners Die Set

Two Birthday Cards and Video with Jennifer Jackson

Quick and Easy Birthday Cards

Hello! Jen here today with a duo of quick and simple birthday cards! These cards are so easy to create you'll want to copy them and make a bunch for your stash! 

To create both of these cards I used our Birthday Party Paper Pad. For the first card I cut 5 rectangles from various papers that measure 3 1/4" tall x 3/4" wide. I layered them onto a piece of yellow card stock that measures 3 1/2" tall x 4 3/4" wide. This fits perfectly inside the scalloped frame from our Frames & Flags Die Set. Then I simply added some twine and the birthday sentiment from our Birthday Oval Stamp Set

For this second card I created a little gift using pieces of paper from our Birthday Party Paper Pad. These pieces measure 2 1/2" tall x 3/4" wide. I added some red and white bakers twine around the paper to make it look like a string wrapped gift!

Then I added the sentiment from our Birthday Oval Stamp Set, stamped onto a white rounded edge banner from our A7 Frames & Banners Die Set. The stitched yellow rectangle was cut out using our Frames & Flags Die Set and I layered another piece of patterned paper in the background using our Birthday Party Paper Pad.

Sky High Birthday Wishes!

This week has been filled with birthday inspiration and today we are floating by with another birthday wish created by Tina

For her card today, Tina features image of the puppy and kitty floating away with a bouquet of balloons from Sky High Celebrations Stamp Set. She colored the image in fun bright pastels and cut it out using the coordinating Sky High Celebrations Die Set

For the background she created a slimline card and cut a scallop edged panel using our Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set. She then filled a beautiful sky backdrop using distress inks with our Clouds Stencil to create layers of clouds in a rainbow of bright pastels. Isn't it amazing!? It's the perfect place for the tall image to float away! She also added a birthday greeting to finish the theme. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from our Birthday Oval Stamp Set and the "Get carried away" sentient is from the Sky High Celebrations Stamp Set. These two sentiments pair perfectly together!

Balloon Filled Birthday! 

Balloons are perfect for celebrating special birthdays! Today we have a birthday card by Zsofia that is filled with balloons in a rainbow of bright celebratory colors! 

To create this gorgeous card she started with a panel of light gray cardstock and stenciled balloons onto it in several colors using our two piece Bokeh Balloon Stencil Set. The two layers of the stencil let you easily align and overlap the balloons for a fun colorful effect! After the panel was finished she cut it out using our Frames & Flags Die Set to give it the pretty scalloped edge.

To cut out the big balloon in the center, Zsofia used our Balloon Shaker Die Set. She also added the bow and string image, cut out with the same set. For the message she combined several sentiments from the Birthday Oval Stamp Set and stamped them stacked onto the ballon! So fun! 

This fabulous card is filled with a ton of texture too! Here is a close up so you can see all the water and pant splatters she added. What a fun detail!

Rainbow Birthday!

Today Maria has created a rainbow of birthday wishes on this gorgeous card! 

She started by stamping the big oval image using our Birthday Oval Stamp Set. She colored the balloons and gifts in rainbow colors, adding fun little white gel pen accents. She cut the image out using the big oval from our Oval Frames Die Set to give it a fun stitched and scalloped edge. She also hand cut around the inside of the images too to give the image a fun "frame" look.

She chose the "Happy Birthday" from the Birthday Oval Stamp Set, embossing it on white onto a small black oval. The oval was also die cut using our Oval Frames Die Set.
