Guest Designer for Birthday Week at Inking It Up Crazy

Kassidy from Inking It Up Crazy thought it would be fun to spend a whole week celebrating Birthdays. Kassidy and her friends have done a fantastic job. If you haven't checked it out here is what has been happening.
On Monday, she featured Invitations, Tuesday was Decorations, Wednesday was party favors and yesterday was wrapping/packaging.  Be sure to check out her blog and see all the great projects.  I have gotten so many great ideas.
Today's topic is Birthday Cards   I am so super excited to join Kassidy and her friends.  This is my first guest designer appearance.  I was also glad that I got picked for cards- coming off surgery, it was nice to have cards.
This was a first for me on many levels.  I made (attempted to make - envision was better than execution)  my first easel card,  I got to use the cricut Imagine Yummy cartridge for the first time and I had a new stamp I wanted to try.

I wanted to try the envelope on the Yummy cartridge and cut it on Fit to Page.  It was an odd size to me and I had trouble matching the card size.  I struggle with the Imagine and sizing and really hope that the cricut craft room will help with that.The background paper is DCWV sweet stack.  I would have used the paper from Yummy if I didn't struggle so with sizing.  I popped the cake up and used stickles.  The stamp is cling rubber by stampendous.  The saying is really cute but the stamp is a rubber stamp on a piece of cling vinyl (verdict is still out)

here is the other card i made.  I used kraft paper for the base and cut the cake from simply charmed.  the paper squares are from yummy and they actually say happy birthday.  The sentiment is cut from birthday bash cartridge.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my cards and my first time as a guest designer.  Thanks Kassidy for giving me this great opportunity.
