September Birthday cards

September is a big birthday month, so lots of opportunities to make some fun cards. There's my brother, sister and mother... and not to forget our three year old granddaughter, who is really into cupcakes.  Here goes:

Birthday card for my sister-in-law. Masked the flowers and used the blender tool to shade in background. Getting better with masking strip. Love this cling stamp set! Peach Parfait and chocolate chip from SU.

Card for my sister's birthday. Stamped happy after embossing, should have done it before. Love the flower technique in 3-blocks. Same stamp as the sunflowers, but with concord grape and pear pizazz.

Matching envelope...

Birthday card for Mom, using the rubber stamp from  online class purchase. I feel like I am finally getting the  hang of using them. Used Poppy Parade from SU with white and black. Tried heat embossing but didn't like the results. Redid the card and used blender tool to soften the edges. The red twine is an exact match for red.

Matching envelope

Three-year old cupcakes and a picture! Heat embossed the hearts and "lit" the candles with gold glitter! Used So saffron as yellow is Cami's favorite color, right now :)

Added white detail with pen, embossed the mat for card and the frosting on cupcakes. 

Get well card for my brother recovering at a sub acute care center. His days must be very long as he's not very mobile now. I added the acorns after heat embossing and using dazzling details to give them some shine. I am loving the triple layer technique.
