  •  We have three birthdays in our family plus Mother's Day in the month of May, so I used my Imagine to create cards for everyone!!  Well not everyone, as my birthday is in there too!  

    Here are the rest of the cards I made:

    I used Enjoy the Seasons for the first three cards:

    I used the basket of flowers and the bunch of flowers for Mother's Day cards for my sisters-in-law.  My brother's birthday is the day before mine and he loves to grill, so I used the grill.  Bonus it is a charcoal grill which is what he uses!  I printed and cut out all three images.

    For the basket of flowers, I used some 1" flowers from Art Philosophy and my Martha Steward Branches Punch.

    I rolled my flowers with my brand new McGill tweezer and stylus set from my friend Jenny!!!  It was an early birthday present as she was afraid I would go buy it myself!!!
    I glued the branches down first and then the flowers on top.  I tied a purple ribbon around the basket and assembled the card.  Amie likes a little sparkle, so I added some purple gems to the card.
    My brother Kurt is pretty low maintenance but he loves to grill!  I thought this image was perfect for him!

    I inked the edges and layered it on the red mat.  I tied a piece of jute around the red mat and inked that too. I used some Glossy Accents on the smoke for some dimension.  BAM - great birthday card for Kurt (my brother who loves to grill on a charcoal grill)!
    My other sister-in-law is not girlie at all.  I thought the green background was too much so I decided to add a little pink....

    I used my Martha Steward lace punch on one edge and ran some twine across the pink paper.  I turned the card horizontal and pop-dotted the image over the top of the pink paper.  I left off the bling and glitter because I was afraid I would over do it and that is not Windy's style.

    Windy also has a birthday this week.  I used Imagine More Cards for the Happy Birthday cake image.

    I printed and cut out the cake.  I found some pink shimmer cardstock from my stash.

    I inked the edges with vintage ink and added a blue bow as blue is her favorite color.  I did add some glitter frosting on the cake.  I used stickles on the candle and flame also.
    I do have a Mother's Day card that I made from my Imagine for my step-mom HERE if you want to see yet another card!!

    Be sure to come back tomorrow to see a fun note pad I embellished with my Imagine!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Your next stop is Nana's Scrap Spot!
