Birthday Card for Teammate

Clearly I enjoy making cards for my teammates.
This is no exception.
This is a birthday card that I made for my friend and teammate, Kathleen.

The pink dotted paper is from BoBunny.
The geographic print paper is from the Play Marbles collection by American Crafts.
The tan cardstock is from Recollections.
The birthday cake image is from the Unity glad you were born stamp set. This was stamped in VersaFine Onyx black ink.
Inside the card, I stamped a sentiment from the CTMH Birthday Funnies set. The sentiment says, "Birthdays are nature's way of telling us to eat more cake."

One Sheet Wonder - 2 cards for Coworkers

For these cards, I used a One Sheet Wonder template I found on Pinterest.
I have other cards that I made as a part of the set, but I have not put any images or sentiments with them yet.

These are both for coworkers that were leaving our team. One was leaving permanently and the other was leaving temporarily.
The blue and gray cardstock are from Recollections. The white is Georgia Pacific cardstock.
The patterned paper is made by Basic Grey and was from my stash.
The images are from the CTMH Ornate Blossoms stamp set.
The sentiments are from the CTMH Just to Say... stamp set.
The images and sentiments were stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.

Work Anniversary Card for a Teammate

This is an anniversary card for a previous teammate. She celebrated 5 years with the company this year.

The blue paper is from Recollections.
The stamped images are from the CTMH Ornate Blossoms set.
The sentiment is from the CTMH Say It All set.
The white is Georgia Pacific cardstock.

Overdue Updates Coming

I have been hoarding my creations apparently. I just found a bunch of photos and emails to myself of things to post. Oops! They are coming. I will be posting them shortly.

Set of Birthday Cards

As you know, I switch teams occasionally at work. This is because of shift changes both at my level and at the supervisor level (people move to other departments, new people come in, some just switch to make their work schedule work with their outside-of-work schedule).
I recently switched teams (my goal is to have this one stay the way it is for a while). One person from my old team took over handling the team celebrations and asked me to make a set of random birthday cards for her to use. I was delighted to be asked to make them!

Here they are:

For this one, I used yellow paper and green bling from my stash.
The sentiment is from the CTMH Art Philosophy Celebration stamp set stamped in CTMH Sweet Leaf ink.
The orange patterned paper is from DCWV.

Inspiration for the above "Celebrate" card

The grey card base for the card above is from Recollections.
The 'b' and the 'star' are from the DCWV Alphabet stack.
The candle and the "hip hip hooray" banner images are from the CTMH Artiste Collection Birthday stamp set.
The banner was stamped onto a white chipboard banner piece that came in the Cricut Artiste set.

All of the patterned papers on the above card are from the Celebration stack.
The card base is white cardstock from WalMart.
The black and kraft papers are from my scrap stash.
The twine is from a large spool from Michaels.
The buttons are from my embellishment stash.

The kraft paper is from Recollections.
I used Darice Nesting Wavy Squares dies to cut the kraft paper. For the white layer, I traced the inner side of the wavy square die and cut the shape by hand.
The sentiment and the image is from the CTMH February Stamp of the Month, Balloon Animals. The image was stamped in CTMH Outdoor Denim ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The candle image (stamped twice) and cupcake image is from the CTMH Artiste Collection Birthday stamp set, stamped in CTMH Chocolate ink.
The sentiment stamp is from the CTMH Art Philosophy It's a Party stamp set. It was stamped in CTMH Chocolate ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The kraft paper is the negative space from the previous animal ballon card.
The green patterned paper is from a DCWV stack (I can't remember which one).
