Three great cards by Nicole Nowosad and Kim Frantz!

Nicole here today to share a super quick way to make a fun birthday card! Whenever I seem to be stuck on any project, I pull out my handy punches and let them do all the work for me !
I started by punching some circles out of the KI Memorie paper and layering the smaller circle over the larger one, using 3D foam dots, alternating the patterns onto each other:

Then, I stamped a quick tag from the Echo Park All About a Boy set and tied it on with some twine. I added a number from my trusty Jillibean Soup Alphabeans to add an “age” to the card:

The card came together in literally 15 mins – using a basic took in my stash, really helps me keep my card clean and simple, but fun at the same time!

Good morning everyone! I am happy to be back to share another quick birthday card, using lots of Hampton Art products.

I started this card, by die cutting a number out of some kraft cardstock and then stamped some stars from the Echo Park Scoot stamps with a beige ink color. I popped it over some striped paper from the KI Memories Happy Birthday sheet for some fun color:

I added a quick stamped sentiment and layered the cardstock over some bright green paper and the card was complete!
