Birthday Card Fairy - October

Last month I shared that I had joined the Wish RAK Birthday Fairy team - sending birthday cards to ladies in the group. I also plan to use the LARGE number of card kits I've gathered over the last year. These are the October cards.

I love watching the Food Network shows where they decorate cakes! And this Rubber Romance girl turned out to be my favorite card of this bunch! I *HATED* the paper that came with the image. In fact, the only part of this card kit I used was the image and the ribbon. The flowered paper came from a DCWV stack. I hoard paper and decided as long as I was using kits I should use paper I have on hand too. "Cake girl" was colored with Copics and glitter pens. Sentiment by Amuse stamped in SU! Handsome Hunter. This is a color combo I intend to use again (teal, dark green, and pink) - it's a YUMMY combo!

I love Magnolia Tilda stamps. This is Tilda with Lilacs (I think). She's colored with Copics and a glitter pen (center of the flowers). I cut her out - keeping close to the line but leaving about 1/8"border. The flowered paper was two-sided and I had a hard time picking which side to use. I used my EK Success border punch for the Fleur de Lis edge. The sentiment is by Amuse.

This cute kit included the dotted, stripped, and solid blue paper. It also include these cute plastic discs and squares (I didn't use them). They add just a bit of shine to the card. The image is Penny Black and was colored with Copics. The sentiment is Denami.

This was a very simple card kit with a Stamping Bella image. She was colored with Copics. The image was stamped in an ink that smeared even after I heat set it, but it wasn't extremely noticeable. I highlighted her with a clear glitter pen that gives her a shine but doesn't really change the color (see the spots on her dress).



  1. Way to use those kits! And for such a great cause, too.

    I love the mouse on the snail, but my favorite is the cake girl -- sassy!

  2. Love all of them! Really great use of your kits. I love food network cake shows, too! Loving your blog, really great cards.

  3. Deb, you always make the cutest cards. These are no exception. I love the sweet images you've used and the dp's are wonderful. I love each and every one of them...

  4. These are all terrific cards, Deb. Now you know . . . I sent you that horrible paper . . LOL (just teasin' ya) I didn't, but I DO love that stamp too. Very nice. I love to watch the cake shows too when I get a chance. :) Kel
