Anya’s Birthday card…

Our granddaughter Anya turned six yesterday and the family birthday party is tomorrow , we have three birthdays this month…so two more cards coming soon!

This cutie stamp’s name is “looking at you” from Stampavie!  So cute and so like Anya IRL!

The next picture shows my clever little trick to make the easel card stopper!  I LOVE it!

Do you see it?  I used two circle punches and a Quickutz flower die and an Amy R’s birthday sentiment, “birthday girl”.  I scored the pink circle, folded it and stuck part under the layers on the bottom of the card.  The green circle I cut off so it wouldn’t be too thick under the layers… cool… I’m sure I’ll be doing this again.  It’s just like a card “stop sign”! lol

Here’s a close up of “looking at you”…

Colored with Copic Sketch Markers – Hair YR30, 31, 23, 24 – shirt and socks R81, 83, 85 – pants & shoes E40, 41, 42, 43, 44 – butterfly BG0000, 000, 01, 02.  Pattern paper by Jillibean Soup (it’s on sale!). Cardstock is from Prism.  Hug Snug seam binding.  Sentiment stamps, Versafine ink, Magnolia Dragonfly die, Spellbinders dies, Memento inks applied with ink blending tool to sky (summer sky)  and grass (pear tart, new sprout and bamboo leaves) … links below.

Linking my card up to a couple challenge blogs…

Papertake Weekly – anything goes with the optional circle…that’d be my stopper! : ))

Flutter By Wednesday – anything goes with a butterfly

Stamps and stuff I used on Anya’s card…


Thanks for stopping by!  Had a good week working on my stamp room,  just to easy to make piles of stuff!  One of these days I want to show you what I did with my clear stamp sets too!

  1. Oh Pam this is just too darn precious !!! I love how you perfectly matched your little flower you used on the stopper to match your paper. What a terrific idea !!! Such a darling little image & colored so wonderfully as always.
    Also wanted to say how I REALLY like how you show everything you used to make your card. What an awesome way to showcase your supplies. You ROCK lady !!!
    I also tried to make a comment from my new Smart phone but I think it’s smarter than me as I kept losing what I was writing … I wanted to say how much I love all those new Magnolia dies you showed yesterday. I mentioned that since you are my favorite enabler I’m sure most if not all will end up at my house before long.
    Hugs, Janie
