I guess it is the time of year to replenish my birthday card stash. I make cards for all the teachers and staff at the elementary school for our PTA.  Today's cards will be for them! I am a little behind! Birthday Essentials Stamp TV kit to the RESCUE!






This first card was fun to color with Spectrum Noir.  I stamped the images in black. 



This card was fun to make. I love the way the white ink pops off the card! I used bakers twine for the stem of the acrylic flower. It was from my stash!  





This card was created with by lining up some post it notes 1/3 of the way from the top of the card. I used a variety of inks and the images from the Birthday Blessings kit to create this card. I stamped the sentiment in black and then went over it with a black sparkle pen.  




This card is very simple, yet the card could be used for a man or woman.  White ink on craft just POPS!
Sentiment in dark chocolate.





Theresa's Northwoods 2 set was fun to work with. I stamped the trees in moss, then slightly offset in white ink to create snow. I used a watercolor brush with the white ink to create the snowscape on the bottom and spritzed the card with some shimmer spray.  I guess I was inspired by our -15* cold weather!




This final card was stamped with black ink and colored with both spectrum noir markers and then I added a hint of white ink with the watercolor brush. I used  I stamped the images in black.  I used two colors of bakers twine on the card (hot pink and black).
