I have two birthday cards for two 9 year olds to share with you today. Our three older grandchildren are turning 9! Well, really there is only one left to celebrate their 9th birthday. One turned nine on May 4th and the other on June 6th. We're just waiting to celebrate another 9 year old on July 2nd! I shared the first 9 year old card a while back. I used the fun new Sliding Star Framelit Dies and the coordinating stamp set, Shooting Star (available as a bundle) to make both of the other cards. I even waited for it to arrive in my first order from the new catalog to make our granddaughter's card. I was cutting that close!
I love the little hive and I hung onto my Hexagon Embossing Folder, which I love for the background. It's hard to tell but I used Wink of Stella to give some sparkle and shine to the bees' wings. The sentiment is pieced together from Thoughtful Banners. This set has so many possibilities for putting together sentiments.
This is the card I made for our grandson using the same set...
The Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper is perfect for the shooting star and the tiny stars too. The background is embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, The world image was colored with Stampin' Write Markers after stamping with Black Memento Ink.
Inside this card I pieced together another sentiment. Besides Shooting Stars and Endless Birthday Wishes I also used the new Labeler Alphabet stamps and some retired Big Shot dies for the number "9".
We're having Cousins Camp next week with our five oldest grandchildren, the three 9 year olds and 2 seven year olds. Two of them are here already and we'll pick up the other three on Sunday. I should be good and worn out by the time they go home! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by today! - Dawn
