Nephew's Birthday

So today was another snow day for me - our 10th this winter!  My nephew's second birthday is in a couple of weeks so I took this chance to craft!

I found the "Hoppy Birthday" sentiment last weekend when I was looking for a regular happy birthday and just knew what I had to do with it!  The stamp comes from the "Punny-licious" My Pink Stamper set.  I cut the frog from the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter 2 (there's also one on Create a Critter, but I liked that this one had the heart).  The 2 is from the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge.  I looked through my stickers/thickers first but couldn't find a number 2 that I liked (some were too big, some were too small, etc.)  The background is Cuttlebug Polka Dots, again that I already had embossed in my stash.

Sister's Birthday

My sister's birthday is 8 days after my husband's, so I also finished a really quick card for her today.  I again went to my stash of embossed card fronts, this one also from a Cuttlebug folder (A2 - I can't remember the name and don't have time to search my stash at the moment.)  I used a q-tip to apply white ink to make the saying "pop."  (I otherwise would have embossed using the Core'dinations paper.  I decided to use this since it was already done).  Somehow I managed to (with my ATG) glue the card front just a little off on the left side.  It bugged me, but I knew ATG is super sticky... so instead I used my Threading Waters punch to add a border.  

One more card to make for my nephew's second birthday at the end of March.  I was playing around with stamps and found a My Pink Stamper stamp with "hoppy birthday" that I am thinking of using with a frog for the front of the card.  We'll see how much later my daughter naps today...

Hubby's Birthday

My husband's birthday is on Monday so I thought I'd finish a quick card this weekend while the little one naps.  I found a few ideas on Pinterest, including this one from Vintage Page Designs.  I loved the idea of the Washi tape present, especially since I feel like a Washi tape collector and haven't used it much!  The ribbon is from American Crafts and the banner is from the Cricut cartridge Create a Critter 2.  The stamp is from the Inkadinkado "Collaged Expressions" set.  The background I believe is from a Cuttlebug folder (Polka Dots maybe?)  I found it already embossed in my stash and just cut it down to use it.  (Polka Dots is a 5x7 folder which would explain why I had to cut it down to A2 size before adding it to my card.

Here's the pin of the original that I scraplifted.
