Birthday Mandala 1 & 2

 Getting some new supplies inked up ! I tried the Altenew Mandala Builder Set. It's 6" square.

I decided to try make 2 cards on the standard card size, so this is the first. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Word Mix.

The part I trimmed, was put on a new card.

It was only after I saw it displayed there amongst my other cards, that I thought I should have but some tea cups on top as if the pattern was part of a tablecloth!

My mind works slowly sometimes.

I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to add interest.

Sea Shell Wishes for you

Our beaches will be re-opening as of 1 July. Yay!

I used the smooshing technique to do the sand (with Antique Linen) and sea (Speckled Egg). I stamped the ink pad on a sheet of plastic, spritzed with some water and then smooshed it on the card. I also added some splatters afterwards to give some more texture.

Beach Birthday

I unpacked my new Stampin' Up set ... Friends are like Seashells. I was inspired by Narelle's card amongst the other challenges.

It's your Birthday ... Woohoo!

I could not resist pairing these 2 sets together when I was asked for fun cards. It is the first time I'm using the Surprise Gift set.

I put a little arrow tab so that the recipient will know to pull up the lid of the gift.

Here's a little hint of the fun to come ...

Woohoo Indeed! I love these fun girlfriends.

Here is the action  ...

Be Still

Sometimes you just need a little peace and quiet ... and tranquility.

More Doodle Blooms

Here is the last of my few left-over doodle flowers. I thought I would change things up by using a coloured cardstock as the background. Love the colour combination of turquoise, lime and grey ... with lightness of white embossing paste and the Alexandra Renke Champagne bubbles stencil (NBUS).

I haven't decided what sentiment I want on this card, so I'm leaving it plain for the moment.
