Sprinkles of Life Cards

The new "sprinkles of life" stamp set and the coordinating punch is so versatile and I love that the options are endless when creating your masterpieces with this set. Best of all Stampin Up will donate $3.00 from every stamp set sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charity.....what could possibly be better than that!

I will be showing off plenty more cards made from this set please keep checking back.

Heart to Heart Card

I love the colours in this card, they really jump out on the crumb cake background. I case the card from one of my favourite designers Steffi Helmschrott. The border was drawn freehand, the coloured shapes were made using the "heart to heart" punch and folded in half. Lastly a sentiment, flower and rhinestones were added to finish the card.

Blossom Petal Builder Card

This card is based on a similar blossom petal builder card I did some time ago. The layout is identical, but the colours are different.

Great Birthday Cards for Boys

I am sharing some card ideas to use for Boys cards. Sometimes it can be a struggle to come up with something suitable for a young lad as so many products on the market are aimed at females instead of males.

Firstly, I am sharing a card that I cased from Heather Klump, this card is suitable for boys of all ages, just by changing the number.

Secondly, another card that is suitable for boys of all ages.

Below is a pocket card is the perfect card to use if you are wanting to give a gift voucher for the gift. You could also fold some money in half and stick that in the pocket instead of a gift voucher. I have made many of these cards over the years and they are very suitable for teenagers, and you can change the colours to suit a female or even make a Christmas version.

Lastly, a very easy grunge looking birthday card perfect for a young teenage boy. The stamp sets used were: simply stars, gorgeous grunge and sassy salutations for the sentiment.

Congratulations Card

Below is a nice simple congratulations card using Stampin Up's "Baby We've Grown" stamp set & "Pretty Print" embossing folder. I used "White Baker's Twine" for the stitching and the "Signo White Pen" for the owl's make them stand out!

This card is pretty much the same only different colours and a birthday sentiment were used instead.
