Dory & Merlin Birthday Card

Hello Crafters,

Today begins the PDE Linky Party #168 Card Challenge.

For this challenge I'm sharing with you a birthday card I made for my neighbor's daughter who is like a niece to me.   

I try to make a card to follow the theme of her birthday party and this year her birthday party theme was Findy Dory.    
As soon as I found out what the theme was I knew I had to use the Dory and Merlin that I got free from the SVG Cutting Files Best Friends Blog Hop from 2014 and accented them with various types of seaweed.  


I used my CuddleBug Polka Dot Embossing folder to emboss the blue paper I used for the water.   I printed and then cut the "Guess who's turning 5?" on a speech bubble.  



My eBrush got a big workout accenting all the seaweed and the paper I used for the sand.   

Here is a close up of Dory and the seaweed that I placed on the left hand side of the card.  I used some of my gel pens to give additional accents to the seaweed.

 Here is a close up of Merlin and the seaweed that I placed on the right hand side of the card. 

 Here is a close up of the sand and the purple coral that I used metalic sharpies to accent.

Turtle Birthday Card

Hello Crafters,

Today starts the PDE Linky Party #167 Anything Goes Challenge.

For this challenge I'm sharing with you a birthday card I made utilizing my eBrush to accent some of the pieces.

The back layer of the shaped mat was white and I used my eBrush with my green sharpie to ink the edges.  I like the way it looks like grass. I also used the eBrush on my balloons with various colors of Sharpies and Comic markers.
I then took a second piece of the blue background and used it to help me make the sky using Stampin' Up Brilliant Blue ink and a sponge.   I also used the eBrush on my balloons. 

The turtle is from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I got him when he was a freebie but you can find him in her $.50 section.   Below in the Card Recipe you will find a link to the turtle.







Card Recipe:
  • A2 Card Base
  • Patterned rectangle mat from Studios Basics 101-Creative Imaginations Birthday Bliss 6"x6" Paper pad.
  • Miss Kate Cuttables Turtle
    • Face stamp is from Pink & Main Mini Faces Set 
    • Close to My Heart Liquid Glass for eye glasses

    • Shaped mats cut out with my Silhouette.
    • Sentiment from Scrappy Mom Stamps Make a Wish Set
    • Stampin' UP Brilliant Blue ink pad
    • eBrush and various Sharpies & Copic Markers
