Some Birthday Cards

Recently we have had some birthdays in the family so it was time to get out the kiddie sets and make some cards for the littlies.
This card was for our cousins little boy who just turned three.

I used the Aligator from the Wild About You stamp set and the sentiment is from It's Your Birthday.
I wanted a bright card so I chose DSP from the Jersey Shore paper pack.
Cardstock used is Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi.
Inks are Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie.
I added the pumpkin pie ribbon and then tied the navy ribbon on for more interest and to balance the card.

Another birthday card but this one was for my niece who just turned 5 last week.

I used the same stamp set as above but used the elephant and inked her up in Regal Rose. The flower is from the Wild About You set too and was inked with Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip.
The DSP is Loves Me (retired). I love the colours of this paper. Cardstock colurs used are Tempting Turquoise. Whisper White and Taken with Teal.
I have used my cuttlebug with the Stylized Flowers embossing folder ( I think that is the one) and reverse embossed onto the paper. I have then used my blender pen and Tempting Turquise ink and brushed the inset design to draw it out and add more colour.
The ribbons are Pretty in Pink and Whisper White Taffeta.

All materials are Stampin Up©
