Bessie's birthday layout

It had been a tradition of my scrapping buddies that when every time one of us celebrate our birthday, the celebrant will make a project for the group. This time it was Bessie's turn (Haven't finish yet Karen's birthday project). And I was so happy I was able to finish all 3 projects, 2 layouts and 1 bag tag.

Layout 1: (Still missing 3 flowers and a picture).

Layout 2:

Cannot post the bag tag since Mikee took it and played with it already.

Thanks Bessie for the projects. 

Karen's card

Finally, I was able to finish and post Karen's birthday card. This had been long long way overdue. I happen  to distress everything since Karen prefers distressed colors and images. It was difficult for me since I prefer happy and bright colors.

I got this style card from sizzix by Shelly Hickox and modified some of the designs. Since I still don't have a Sizzix Diffuser, I just made my own using the Splitcoaster Tutorial in Double Embossing. I colored my hero arts stamp with copic markers, die cut th dies and colored it with my Viva Decor inka gold. I really had fun using my new toy.

Upon opening I used a Karen Burniston pull up tag frame which I saw in her you tube channel that she also incorporated in a card she made.

Closer look of the haning 3d bird cage die from tim holtz. Almost all materials I used were tim holtz dies since Karen is a big fan of tim holtz. I hope she will like the card I made. Now, off to do and finish Bessie's card.

Thanks for looking!
