Welcome to CardMaker Magazine Blog's Birthday Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to our CardMaker Magazine "Birthday Blog Hop"!

First, I have to say...
She is the Managing Editor of CardMaker Magazine, a lovely soul,  and she's another year sweeter today!
I know I have already shared this photo of the CardMaker girls that made it to CHA, in our In-N-Out Burger hats, but I dressed it up a tad for the occasion with one of my illustrations from Clear Dollar Stamp's Birthday Party set. 

(pictured: Carolyn King, Brooke Smith, Kimberly Crawford, Tanya Fox, and myself)


OK...now on to the business at hand.
All of the CardMaker girls were given this photo for inspiration and were asked to do a birthday card based off of it.


Here is my card, which I popped in the mail yesterday for someone special! :)....



I used Inkadinkado's "Happy Birthday Cupcake" set. I stamped the cupcake with Ranger Ink's Mushroom Adirondak Ink then added clear embossing powder and heat set. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with Ranger's Silver embossing powder.
The cardstocks are: Brilliant White, Turquoise, Silver Polish, and  Cyclamen Cascata Felt from Discount Card Stock.
The pretty ribbon is Fuchsia Glitz from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The Silver Rhinestones are from Want2Scrap.
The white is embossed with Provo craft's Happy Birthday embossing folder. 
I used Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies on the image, and a Martha Stewart corner punch to create the sentiment frame. Added some color to the edges with some Ranger Ink, did a little stitching, then put it all together with Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Glue and ZapDots. Viola!


Here's the hop list:
Tami Mayberry
Carolyn King
Me  ;)
Colleen Schaan
Kimbery Crawford
And last but not least, head back to the CardMaker blog and wish our sweet Brooke a happy birthday. :)


Please make sure and leave some love on all of the girl's blogs. After all, you all are the reason we love sharing what we do!


Thanks for hopping by!  :)
