A Dino-mite Birthday!

Love this new shimmer paper! It really makes something simple more special!

The adorable little dinosaur is from Create-A-Critter. I stamped his spikes and belly with stamps from Who's Your Valentine set! The bigger owl's belly makes perfect scales for this dino's belly! The spikes are stamped with that cute mini chevron stamp and the frame was also tone on tone stamped with the diagonal stripes background stamp from In The Background (NEW and available the first of February!)  I used the shimmer paper scraps from around the "2" for his spots.

I used two different size punctuation mark stamps to make the confetti on the sides! (Probably my favorite new stamping technique)

Masculine CAS Birthday Card

I always struggle with masculine but I really like how this one turned out. I even combined black with outdoor denim (aka navy). 

Holiday Thank You Cards

A great way to use holiday stuff after the holidays! It's wintery but without having an overly Christmas feel.

Shaker Birthday Card

I LOVE shakers! For this one, I cut stars from Art Philosophy out of a piece of outdoor denim card stock. I inked the edges and marked up around the stars.

To make the confetti I rounded up a handful of scraps of white card stock, and I stamped them in slate, pear, and outdoor denim (both sides of the card stock) with the polka dot background stamp from the Diverse Backgrounds set. Then I just went a little crazy with my hole punches (1/4" and 1/8"). I also added a few 1/8" circles that are just white.

That super cute B&T Duos base is from the NEW paper pack Later Sk8er which comes out in February! What else is new here? That slate washi tape and the sentiment which is from Perfect Fit- Birthday! Yup, there are more sets for the perfect fit collection including NEW frames! And did I mention that outdoor denim card stock came from a combo pack? IT DID! Combo packs of 12x12 for each color collection: basics, enchantment, adventure, and whimsy!

Kraft-y Birthday Card

NEW CTMH product available February!!!

Those adorable flowers are from the Girls Rock stamp set!
That awesome chevron background is from the set In The Background.
The sentiment is from Perfect Fit - Birthday! Yup! More sets for the Perfect Fit collection! And there are new frames too!

I used sorbet, lagoon, gypsy, and chocolate ink.
