2 Cards Today

Hi everyone Hope your weekend was wonderful mine was nice I got to stay home while my car is in the shop ugh. I have 2 cards to share today and so you know tomorrow I will post my giveaway winner with a photo of the prize.

My first card is a 51/2x 5 1/2 on SU Summer Starfruit cardstock using CC Designs Birthday Cherrie (copic colors listed below)
I had fun making this card its not a scene but it has fun embellies on it. I stamped colored and fussy cut my image then stamped the image again on the patterned paper for the balloon lines. I layed my girl down flat but put the balloons on foam. My patterned papoer is from Creative Imaginations "Loolah" (I also used this to paper piece the green on the gift. The frame is from Just Rite "Just keep Calm",
The sentiment, candles & star are from PTI "BirthdayBash Sentiments", and the award ribbon and tickets are from Lawn Fawn "Admit One". I used SU inks in Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, and Gumball Green and Colorbox Chalk Ink Mango Tango.
I added Diamond stickles around the award ribbon and some Sakura Glaze Pen on the tickets in blue, red & green.

For the inside:

I layered the patt papers then took some of the SU cardstock and ran it thru the Paper Studio "Tickets" embossing folder then sponged some SU Gumball Green ink over it. My inside sentiment is from PTI Stylish Sentiments Birthday" in SU Ruby Red.
Again the copic colors will be at the end of this post.

My second card is a super clean & simple card that only took 20 minutes to make which is fast for me as I am the worlds slowest cardmaker LOL
Its an A2 card on Neenah Solar White Cardstock.

For the blue city scape I stamped Paper Smooches "Metropolis" onto blue cardstock (this is an outline stamp). The black city scape is a solid stamp from Mama Elephant "Central Park" I put the black on foam & filled all windows with a yellow Sakura Glaze Pen. For the moon I didnt have a large enough solid circle stamp so I used SSS "Cupcake Party" polka dot circle flipped it over and used the back and it worked like a gem I stamped it in versamark ink and heat embossed it with Recollections "Metallic Gold" powder.and cut it out with my Spellbinders Circle die.
Heres a photo from an angle to show the embossing better as well as the wood veneers.

I stamped the stars from SSS "Cupcake Party" in SU Midnight Muse" as well as inked a few Studio Calico Star veneers in the Midnight muse and put glossy accents to help the veneers stand out a bit. Lastly I used the gold embossing powder to stamp Lets Celebrate from Mama Elephant "Say What" trimmed it out and put it on foam. Like I said super simple.
Hope u all like the cards heres the copic colors I used on my Cherrie image.

Copic Colors for Birthday Cherrie:
Red Bow-R24,27,46,39
Paper pieced green on gift shaded with C5,3,1
Also used white gel pen on balloons and cheeks/Diamond stickles on leggings and  bow.
