Jessica's 13th Birthday 2022

Hi everyone,
Our Grand Daughter Jessica is officially a teenager today and celebrating her 13th Birthday. Yayeeeee...! Unfortunately all of her Birthday plans have had to be rescheduled due her contracting Covid last weekend, she is very disappointed and will have to wait till a later date.  Jess will also miss her first day of this year's school camp but her parents intend to take her to the school camp on Tuesday if she is okay.
I stamped the background with the Silver Shimmer ink and then used an old Credit card to add the black lines, finishing it off with some splatters in three different colours.  I die cut the numbers out five times and stacked them for dimension.  The sentiment was heat embossed with silver embossing powder on black card and the sneakers and ear phones were stamped and coloured with a Marker.  I finished off by adding some Wink of Stella for some added bling and detail.
Thanks for your visit today, lovely to see you here.

Hi Crafty Stampers,
My card today is a reminder for the Mixed Media CAS Mix Up Challenge "Faux Cloisonné" which ends on the 24th February.
I used the Spotlight magazine again and you can see the pictures I used below to create my Frangipani Spray.  I did stamp and cut a few extra flowers which were mounted on Foam Tape to give the flowers some extra dimension.  The heat embossed paper was backed with some white card before fussy cutting and the edges of the cut pieces where coloured with a Gold pen from Stampin' Up.  I added the Sentiment and Heat embossed it with Gold E/Powder, splattered some Gold Delicata Ink and attached the Gold Sequins to finish off my card. The inside of my card was decorated too.
Flowers - I used the 3 Glasses
Leaves - Doona Cover

Jenna's Birthday 2022

Hello Friends,
On the 9th of Feb we celebrated our Grand Daughter Jenna's 12th Birthday.  Her parents gave her an Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch and so that is the theme I have used for my card.  I outlined all the circles with the Gelly Roll Pen, it appears some of the lines have smudged a little which I did not notice until I posted the photo on my blog and the rest are not all that clear, looks much better in real life.
