Party Pig Birthday

Today I'm taking a small break from the food punnies so that I can bring you this adorable birthday card.  This little party pig is ready to get her party on with her candle on the head and yummy cupcake.
 
I used the You're Such A Party Animal - Pig card from Marjorie Ann Designs.  Of course you probably already guessed that because of all the cuteness overload.  As usual this was a fun and easy card to piece together.  I added a little bit of embossing to the "frosting" so it would look a bit more "fluffy".
 
The stamped sentiment on my card is from the Say it Big stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas.  On the inside of my card (not pictured) I used a sentiment from the Just Pigcause stamp set.  It says "have a swine day".
 
And now I'm off to enter this card into the following challenge:
 
Craftin Desert Divas - Birthday Linky Party - Ends July 19th

DL Art - Anything Goes (July Challenge) - Ends July 31st

You're Bacon Me Happy

And so the food punnies just keep coming.  You can't blame me though.  It's all Cardz TV Stamps' fault.  Mary really outdid herself with this stamp set.  I can't remember the last time I sat down and went to town with a stamp set like this.  And I love how easy it's been to find perfect 'cuts' for each of these sentiments.
 
Today's card features one of the Cutie KaToodles from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  This one is titled I Love Bacon.  She's definitely cute and I too love bacon so it's the perfect punny for some  Sunday Funday humor.
 
And now I'm off to enter this little cutie into the following challenges:

I Love You More Than....

 
I can't begin to tell you how much fun I am having with this new stamp set More Foodie Punnies by Cardz TV Stamps.  I've created several cards already and today I'm sharing the second one.
 
Once again, Marjorie Ann Designs had the perfect file to use with my sentiment.  This file is called We Go Together Like Macaroni & Cheese.   These mice are so stinking cute and absolutely perfect for anything pertaining to cheese.
 
So there you have it.  The second card in my Food Punny Series.  Stay tuned because there's definitely more to come.  In the meantime, I'm once again entering my card in a couple of challenges:

...Fries for You

It's good to be back in my craft after a week or so off.  I had another mud run/race last week and then with this week being a short one there was just no time for anything other than work and training at the gym. 
 
Today I have a punny card that I would like to share with you.  And this one is perfect for Valentine's Day, an Anniversary, or Just Because.
 
For my card I used one of the bears from the We Go Together....like Fries and Ketchup file by Marjorie Ann Designs.  Because this little girl bear is so cute I couldn't bring myself to use a patterned paper for the background.  Instead I opted for a clean, white, embossed card.
 
The stamped sentiment is from the recently released More Foodie Punnies by Cardz TV Stamps.  Be on the lookout for other cards coming using a combination of stamps from this set and files from Marjorie Ann Designs.  It's like these two were made for each other.
 
To finish off my card I used a couple of the Stream colored skittles from DoubleClick Connections.  This is one of my favorite colors but she has a lot of great ones available.
 
And now I'm off to enter my card in the following challenges:

Party Hardy.....Mario Style

 
So my oldest son is a huge video game fanatic.  He collects and plays all kinds of video games.  Including all the old, original Nintendo NES games.....you know those big, gray, brick looking cartridges.  Anyhow when I saw this new Mario Brothers file over at Marjorie Ann Designs I knew I had to use it to create a birthday card for my son. 
 
To make things even better this file comes with clip art ready for importing into Design Studio for use with the print 'n cut feature.  And since I was short on time that's exactly what I did.
 
My card base though was created using the Sunflower Treat Cup Girl Card from SVG Cutting Files.  Admittedly when I put this card together for the first time I had an oopsie with placing the treat cup properly.  Since there was nothing wrong with the card itself I decided to save it for later use.  Glad I did too because it worked beautifully for this birthday card.

And here's a view of the inside of my card with more goodies from the Mario Brothers file...

 
 
My stamped sentiments are from the Cardz TV Stamps set titled Good Times.

Birthday Balloons

 
Today I have a fun birthday card that I'd like to share with you.  This is another of the shaped cards from Marjorie Ann Designs and this one is called Baby Panda Birthday
 
I had a sheet of birthday themed, double sided paper in my stash so I used that as my card base.  Since the inside of the card had all these stars I decided to cut a few extra ones like what's on the Panda's hat - only larger.  I then adhered these onto the white stars.
 
 
 
The stamped sentiment on both the outside and inside of my card are from Calling All Superheroes from Craftin Desert Divas.

Happy Birthday Sassy Pants

 
Today I have a fun birthday card to share with you.   It's kind of like a two for one card.  It's a card and a treat all in one spot.
 
To create my card I used a couple of different files from SVG Cutting Files:  Sunflower Treat Cup Girl Card and Potty Pooper.  I know, I know.  Sounds nasty right?  But I bet you thought it was cute before you found out the name of this cute little guy who's part of the Poopeez collection.  My boys (who are ages ranging from 17 to 24) carry on and crack jokes about bathroom antics so when I saw these files I admit there were several that I purchased.  After all they are cute in their own way and you don't really know what they are until you're told.
 
So to create my card I used one of the treat cups from Stamping Up.  However, these were discontinued a while back and I remember hearing about it so I joined in and purchased a couple of boxes before they were gone.  Now I have heard that Wilton Candies makes a mold that will also work with this card base but that you might need to resize the card to fit the mold.
 
After I adhered my treat cup to the front of the card base and then adhered the top layer, I turned my card over and wondered how I was supposed to make the inside layer work for my treat flap.  Then I realized that all I needed to do was draw a faint line around where my flap would fit when fully inserted and apply my adhesive around that.  Viola! My flap moves in and out perfectly to reveal the fun candy treat inside.
 
To compliment my Potty Pooper character I decided to use some of the fun sentiments from the Jaded Blossom stamp set titled Sassy Pants.  Here's the inside of my card....
 
 
 
And now I'm going to enter this card in to the following challenge:
