Christmas season birthday

My design for my step-son’s birthday, which is December 26th, so we always try to make sure to separate it from Christmas celebrations.  Wine bottle and wine glasses are from Stampin’ Up’s Half Full set and stamped on vellum, which is then colored with distress markers.


Happy Birthday – eclipse style

I love the look of this eclipse technique. Birthday card for my daughter-in-law, using Stampin’ Up Large letters and Colorful Seasons leaf stamp. Sentiment from Stampin’ Up Birthday Blossoms. Leaves were heat embossed using copper embossing powder then colored with markers.
