12 Kits June '16 Happy Birthday

Tomorrow is July 1st, and today it's time for a 12 Kits Post!
Welcome to a birthday celebration with our hostess, Joyce Mehrberg,
from Cards-by-the-Sea.
Joyce's kit was full of happy. Colorful, crisp images and die cuts
ready to celebrate that special day.
And who doesn't need a large stash of birthday cards?
So settle back and enjoy.
It's 7 cards for me, and I could have done 7 more, with all I had left.

A Sheet of birthdays and happys was included in the kit.
This is the positive image of the sheet, glued in place!

Of course, had to do the negative image over one of the dp's Joyce included.

More balloons, over a bright pink sentiment die cut.

Love this circle of scripted happy wishes from Papertrey!

Another birthday cake, and this stamped sentiment.
The candles were fussy cut from another designer paper.

Included in our kit was this 2 tiered stamped cupcake image from 
Impression Obsession and 
a bag of sequins. Shaker time!
Pretty Pink Posh double frame.

Last card, with big bold candles.
Be sure to visit the other designers to see what they did, and
thanks to Joyce for a fabulous kit!
My birthday cards are caught up... (for awhile).

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. These are wonderful, Nancy! I love how you did your shaker card, with the double frame!

  2. I'm blown away with the stack of cupcakes! Double frame and shaker to boot? Crazy amazing! Loving the circular birthday sentiment too - you packed so much color in there it's captivated me!

  3. Wow wow. So many amazing cards. I think you must have used every single thing in the kit. Love how you used the negative and positive of that birthday die. That must have been a lot of work. And, the way you used the swirled sentiment is so smart--I love your coloring and splatters.

  4. many wonderful birthday cards, so festive and just so amazing.

  5. Love them all, Nancy, but the balloon cards are my favorites--so festive & fun!

  6. Beautiful cards, Nancy! Looks like you will be set with at least a few birthday cards for your large group. I love the stacked cupcakes!

  7. Wow, great idea to use both the positive and negative of the happy birthday panel, bet that took a while. And I love your circular sentiment design! Your coloring on that one and the awesome cupcakes is fantastic. You have given me so many ideas--every card is amazing!!

  8. Gorgeous cards with Jouce's Kit Nancy! Love the way you punched all the letters out of the large birthday cover plate--looks great with the red behind it!! Love both your swirl sentiment card and those fabulous cupcakes! You outdid yourself!!

  9. What an amazing assortment of cards Nancy!! You really knocked it out of the park with Joyce's kit!!
