Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #397 and Seize the Birthday

Hello everyone!!

Today I am posting a couple cards I have created. I apologize for the photos. I took my light box down because it was taking up too much room. However, my lighting has been off ever since so I think I am going to have to re-think this plan. I need to figure out lighting in general for my photos but just don't want to spend a lot of money!!

Anyway, the first card I created using this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #397 as my inspiration.

I actually flipped the sketch for my card, die cutting circle "windows" with MFT "Circle Trio Shaker Window" die.

I used Hello Bluebird "Silly Birds" stamp and matching die set for the birds, and colored them in using Copic markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set and use foam adhesive to pop the white panel up.

I added the birds and fun elements and then used Glossy Accents, Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss and Stickles to kick up some elements in the scene. I wanted to use some google eyes on the birds but for the life of me, I couldn't find my stash. I hate when that happens!!

Paper: Neenah Solar White, Paper Trey Ink Limeade Ice
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, PaperTrey Ink Smokey Shadow
Stamps: Hello Bluebird "Silly Birds"
Dies: My Favorite Things "Circle Window Shaker Trio," Hello Bluebird "Silly Birds," Paper Trey Ink Bubble Talk

I am also going to enter this into this weeks Seize the Birthday Challenge.

For my second card, I created a Peek a Boo card. This was an experiment in making an interactive card. I watched a TON of videos on different kinds to make and this was the one I chose. I used Jennifer McGuire's directions from this VIDEO for the peek-a-boo part of the card.

I stenciled the balloons on using a Simon Says Stamps stencil. I then drew in strings with a Sakura marker

When you open the card, the little Mama Elephant Monkey pops in on top of a yellow balloon. I stamped a sentiment and added a little bird over the top.

It does not slide as nicely as I would have like but oh well!! It was an experiment and hopefully it will be better next time!!
