I have used a 5 x 7 inch white card base onto which I drew a fine black wavy line with a 0.05 micron pen. This was to be the wire.
I then chose a Martha Stewart bird punch which has a set of outline stamps to go with it. I first stamped in Versafine black ink onto papers chosen from Graphic 45 (Steampunk Spells 6 x 6 inch papers) which I then punched out.
The birdies were then adhered onto the 'wire' as shown and a dot of diamond Stickles glitter glue added over the eye of each one.
The Happy Birthday stamp is from Happy Little Stampers and again this was stamped directly onto the card in Versafine black ink to finish.
Day 3 of the triangle card variants. I started with a 4.5 x 4.5 inch Kraft card base. The triangles were cut from coloured card in purple/pink/mauve colours. A strip of dark pink card was trimmed into a strip and adhered behind the triangles which were mounted on foam pads as shown.
The sentiment (Stampin'Up) was stamped in Versafine black ink to finish.
I made this birthday card using a 5 x 5 inch square white card base. I then trimmed a matt from pale green card and stuck a trimmed Gelli plate background I had previously made using acrylic paints and a stencil onto this.
The ribbon was made from purple satin ribbon and adhered over the mat with red line tape.
The sentiment and heart (Stampin' Up) were stamped on white card with Memento grape jelly dye ink. This was trimmed and mounted on foam pads over a piece of mauve hammered card.
3 pearlescent cabochons were added on the ribbon to finish.
Bright and cheery citrus colours are the basis for this birthday card. Started with a white 5 x 5 inch card base and I have used Washi tape and die-cuts to produce a rosette flower all held together with a brad.
The sentiment is stamped in Versafine black ink using a Papertrey Ink stamp. The plate was raised on foam pads.
