Hello Bluebird Birthday Card…

 

Hi everyone…it’s been a fun Summer with our kids and g-kids. This is the card I made for Cedryk who turned six in July.  He loves to fish with his dad and gpa and loves his kitties and dog and everything on wheels! lol

I had so much fun with this… I die cut the Pond Builder Set in Strathmore 400 BEST coldpress watercolor paper and watercolored the pieces with Gansai Tambi 36 color wc set.  I mixed color right on my Tonic craft mat and then spattered on the extra with my favorite brush for spattering… I’ll link it up below… it’s the round #4 in the set.

I stamped the colored images on Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, die cut them, then colored them with Copic Sketch markers. TIP: I always die cut before I color… if you need something larger to hold on to, use a temporary adhesive and stick the cut to a larger piece of paper or cardstock.

Isn’t he just the cutest and that kitty!!!

 

It was hard to narrow down the photos for this one…this scene just made me photo happy! lol

I hope it makes you smile too!  We were having some super hot and humid days but wow, now it won’t stop raining and being humid.  Yep, I’m from Iowa, we’re always talkin’ ’bout the weather!  I don’t like to go places in the rain people! lol  I came up the front stairway last night and bam… the roof is leaking. ugh.  Water is supposed to stay outside and in ponds you know!  So I’m feeling whiny baby.  sigh

Thank goodness for cute cards!

Thanks for stopping by! Take care and see you soon…bring on the snow! haha

  1. Could this be any cuter…so adorable Pam.. Super Super job…wish I had a little one to make this for. He is 12 and dont know who else. Just cute for anyone right?

  2. You have the cutest stamps and dies ever! What a darling card, Pam! I love this! Thanks for the afternoon happies!!!

  3. Adorbs – (yes this really is one of the new words in the dictonary) and I am sure your grand son loved his birthdasy card. So much going on and filled with everything he likes.

  4. A stamp set and two die sets… they gave you the most awesome, fun, cute card for Cedryk! The things you have in your stash, sigh… wish I could see it. I’d drool, but that’s okay. I especially love the pond. It could be used with a variety of stamps. You must have the best time making these gkids’ cards!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
