Birthday Cocktail

Who doesn't love a cocktail for his or her birthday? Can't really think of anyone? Yeah, me neither! So here we go using the Create A Smile Stamps freebie which you can find on their wonderful blog. I had a great time coloring the image and I decided to put lots of glossy accents on the glass to give it some major shine.

Sunflower Wedding Card

Don't Let The World Bring You Down

My friend asked me to letter this sentence (lyrics by Incubus) for her birthday and I was more than happy to do it! I created another bokeh background which I absolutely love and lettered the sentiment with my trusted and beloved Tombow pen.

Sweet Birthday

I currently enjoy creating little scenes on my cards. When I started working on this particular one I had no idea where I was going but I'm really happy with the outcome and I can't wait to give this card to my mother :)

I also got back into the habit of creating matching bows for the envelopes. I think this is so cute for cards that are given away in person.

You Are My Mountain, You Are My Sea

This card is very different from the wedding cards I usually make and I must say that it's one of my favorites so far. I softly ink blended the mountains and waves onto Bristol smooth cardstock, framed them and handlettered the sentiment (that was the motto of the wedding reception) around it. I used Finetec gold watercolors which pop beautifully on the white cardstock and create a beautiful shine on the rather minimalistic card.

Shades Of Pink Newborn Card

I wanted to create a very "girly" newborn card with different shades of pink and a little bit of glitter and thought this was a good opportunity to try the bokeh technique for the first time. I really love how the background turned out and it was fairly easy to make. I simply die cut a bunch of circles out of some masking paper and used the negative piece as a stencil. I rotated my stencil a few times to slightly overlap a few circles. 

Then I cut small strips of light pink, bright pink and white cardstock and glued them together for a striped look that I used for the die cut pieces.
