Card Order

A friend of Denise's asked me to make some birthday cards for her. She wanted 4 each for kids, guys and gals.This first card is for a boy. I used some Stampin' Up sets for most of the cards.
Here's another one for a boy. The birthday hat is an AMuse stamp, the Happy Birthday is from a Stampin' Up set.
Then I made a couple for a girl. This is a Stampin' Up set.
I've used this princess stamp many times. Its from the same set as the one above.
I struggle with making guy cards. I'm not sure where I got this sailing ship stamp. I've used it before for a guy card. The dp background is from a Basic Grey paper pad.
This stamp is from a Stampin' Up set that I've used many times for a guy card. The dp background paper is from another Basic Grey paper pad.
This is another Stampin' Up stamp set. This is the Cape Hatteras lighthouse located on the outer banks of North Carolina. I'm going to use this layout for a lighthouse card swap on SCS.
The fourth guy card. I really like the way this one turned out. I CASED this card from one I found in SCS 's gallery.
This is the first gal card. I'm not sure I really care for this one. I used a piece of dp from a Memory Box paper pad. The stamp is from a Stampin' Up set.
On this card I allowed the layer of dp to be the focal point for the card and added the "Happy Birthday" and a bird punched out from a piece of dp. I love the simplicity of the card.
I did this same card for a SCS card swap.
Lastly, I used the same layout as the card I made for Denise's birthday card and a SCS card swap. I used a black and ivory color scheme. The large butterfly is a sticker, part of a set that I found at a warehouse sale I went to. The smaller butterflies were punched out using dp and a Martha Stewart punch.

It was cut using a Spellbinders die cut.
