SJ Card Blog for September 2016

Hi everyone!! Today I am showcasing the cards that I created for the SJ Card Blog for September. I meant to have it up the other day but just didn't have time. It was my turn for the kit and I chose a birthday theme.

I created eleven cards, one being the card I created for my Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #19 post. Let me tell you, I have plenty left to make a ton more cards but I got sick of making birthday cards and needed a break.

So without further ado, here are my cards!!

I really attempted to only use the kit on my cards. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it did not!! For this card, I did add some Distress Ink Spray behind the flowers but everything else, minus the white card base, came in the kit.

This was the first card I created. I die cut numbers using old Quickutz dies. The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays "Shenanigans" set-one of my FAVORITES!!

For this card I added some iridescent sequins and some Glossy Accents over the glasses to make them more realistic. I also added the white card stock background and inked all of it up.

On this card, I inked the background with Distress Ink in "Wild Violet" and accented it with some Hero Arts "Lavender" ink. The sequins were not part of the kit or the vellum I used behind the green die cut. Ultimate fail on this card for using the kit but sometimes that is where the creativity takes you!

I colored in my pig with Copic Markers and added a hat that I cut out of one of the pieces of patterned paper. I really wanted to add sparkle to the hat but I DID NOT have any Stickles in the green color to match!! Instead, I used Glossy Accents to make the pattern on the hat stick out.

For this card, I just added some red Stickles for sprinkles to the stamped tag.

This card was my favorite from the bunch. I just LOVE how this cake turned out!!

Well, that is all. I urge you to hop on over to the SJ Card Kit Blog to see what my other team mates did with their kits!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
