Technique Tuesday and CardMaker Blog Hop

Welcome to the Technique Tuesday and CardMaker blog hop! If you are arriving here from Laura O'Donnell's blog you are right on track. For a full list of participants and hop details please start at CardMaker

Summertime is almost here and with it are lots of birthday celebrations so I used Technique Tuesday's Say It - Happy stamp set to create this fun and colorful birthday card. 






Whimsical stamped birthday icons, colorful patterned paper and buttons make this a celebratory card, don't you think?

Often, during summertime, my husband like to escape North Carolina's heat and humidity by visiting our local art museum. This Wildflowers stamp from Technique Tuesday reminds me of the gorgeous field of wheat and iron tree in front of the museum which inspired my card. 





I stamped this card twice, first with white ink, then a second time with black to give it a dimensional effect. 

Next up on the hop is Daniela Dobson.

Love them both but the second one is getting cased for sure! Great masculine card!

Two terrific cards! Thx for sharing.

Both are really nice, but the second one hits the spot for me to make today. I'm trying to make six of each card for Operation Write Home and the second card is perfect for my box! Thank you for sharing the inspirations.

I love using buttons and ribbon. And I'm always looking for an idea for a masculine card. These are great cards :)

Very fun birthday card! I especially like how you curved the sentiment! The thanks card is so elegant! Great image (especially with the double stamping) and nice combination of colors and textures! TFS!
