Butterfly Birthday Card, Summer Ice Birthday Card, Shoe Birthday Card in Blue Red and White

So many cards I made and I have so less time to go to my Blog land :)...also today I share three cards I made for my friends birthday.

First I made this card for my lovely Blogland Friend PIA, she is really a lovely lady...I knew her for the first time from Make it Monday challenge and we gave comment  each other at that challenge place....her comment come from her heart and I am always missing her if she is not there in my comment section :)..... Pia, I know you like Purple and I hope you like butterfly too..here is your card...I will send it out soon ;)

Only simple way to make this card, I used my embossing paste in white and gave the purple embossing powder then I did heat it and wait till it dry.

I dont have nice Birthday sentiment for this card, some are so long some are so small also I choose Best Wishes this time.

Challenges for my FIRST card are:

Second card I want to join the sketch challenge at Stamplorations...I was really blocked I have no idea which element I should put on that sketch also this time I choose this summer element that my sons love so much :)

I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder the stripe at the left side and gave some distress ink in summer colors. I also colored the ice pop sicles with same colors. The Sentiment is from Stamploration.

Challenges for my second card are:

Sister Act #111: Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Now my third card, it is for my  lovely friend Cathy in the USA she was also my Uni Friend and now she move to USA with her Hubby and daughters. Cathy hope you like the Shoe card I made :)

I stamped the Shoe image first then I colored it first. Then I cut a circle use for my stencil. I double the stencil with this small checkerboard from my Favorite Things, and I use Worn Lipstick Distress Ink with sponged for made my background. I did a bit smudge on the edge part also I put two red stripe on each edge.

The color is popular at this month and next month too....also I will make more card with this red blue and white color combo :) please dont feel bored :) (LOL)

  1. Alle drei Katen sind dir wieder mal sehr gut gelungen!!!
    Die Schmetterlingskarte ist farblich wundervoll.
    Die zweite Karte ist soooo sommerlich, dann man gleich anfängt zu schwitzen und nach diesem wunderbaren Eis verlangt Hmmmm!!!
    Und die Schuhkarte ist - wie immer - wunderbar. Schuhe sind ein dankbares Opfer für Karten und passen fast immer.
    Alles in allem: Klasse!!!
