Your Next Stamp Challenge # 55

Hello and Happy Monday

I hope everyone is getting ready for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

Today I want to share these cards that I created this weekend for my friends. Two of my friends I used to work with had a joint birthday party Saturday night and I created these birthday cards for them.

These cards are being entered in the YNS Challange # 55 (friends).

Both cards feature the Cupcake Cutie Fhina (cling stamp).

These ladies have two different personality and styles. So I wanted to use the same image for both cards, but make the cards to fit their personality.

Card # 1 (Brit) - Below is a close up of the stamped image. Brittany loves pink and bling, which is why I used stickles on her dress and cupcake & added some rhinestones. The image was colored with Copic markers and this is my first time attempting dirty blonde hair on an image. The pink card base is from a K & Company card pack. Black ribbon is from a pack of ribbon from Michael's.

Card # 2 (JLo) - JLo also knew at Jenn has a fiery personality, which is why red is a primary color for this card. This image is colored with Copic markers. I used red YNS skittles throughout the card. The card Base is Studio G. Pattern Paper is by Martha Stewart and the red card stock is by Making Memories. Faux stitching was done with a black ZIG marker. It's your Birthday stamp is from a Hero Arts stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my creations.
