Hip Hop!

I have another funky Birthday card today-


I decided on a little big of a loud and funky card today- not my normal cleaner styled card...and I think I like it!  The cake is paper pieced, and the word cake is colored in with Copics.  I added BIG drops of stickles on the candles to add a little sparkle.

And there is NO ribbon... not a usual happening around thees parts!  ;)

Interested in some BLOG CANDY?

You could win this! post the winner tomorrow with my Stamp Simply/FWF post :)

Hi AJ,

What a wonderful card you've made here!! Love the paper piecing on the cake! I don't miss the ribbon, but I find myself also always adding ribbon to my cards, ha ha!! I love bday cards with colors in the same range and I love to use paper piercing in the card as well. Like this card: http://wbtenhove.blogspot.com/2010/09/mailbox-squares.html
Most of my friends don't know any of these techniques yet, so I love to surprise them and make them wonder how I did things! ;-) I like to use images on the bday cards, that are not meant to be for a bday.
I had a look at your previous cards as well, sooo nice, love how you use the cork! Such a wonderful masculine bday card! Somehow your posts don't pop up in my Google Reader as new ones... so I don't see if you posted something new... Good thing there's this Bloghop!! I'm happy to see what you created!
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Wendy

wonderful card AJ.. I love making photo cards for Birthdays.. if it is for family or friends.. I love adding a photo of themselves somewhere. a little personal touch. Most of the time I just keep it simple.

What a cute card! My favorite b-day card to make would be manly and distressed because it's almost the ONLY kind I make. My family is VERY short on ladies!!!

My favourite birthday card is hand made ones from my 5 and 3 year old boys. They are awesome - and there is always a story with each one.

Lillian Child said...

Good morning, AJ! I do so love Thursdays!! It's my FAVORITE day to spend with Unity! I love making "whimsical" birthday cards - birthdays should always be about fun - and CAKE of course! (grin)

I love making a three layer Double Chocolate fugde cake!!! Yum !!!! Then taking a large slice and a glass of really cold milk and watching Law and Order. PERFECT!!!!

FibreJunky said...

I like to make birthday cards that speak to the individual, so for my mom, it would be pink and flowery. If I can make it sparkle or shimmer, all the better for me. If I can make it funny, that's the best.

You did loud and funky proud!!!

Cute card! I love making ANY kind of birthday card except I do find the masculine type card a bit tricky.

Ashley Nguyen Newell said...

my fav b-day card to make is a pop-up gift card/holder style card...decorated w/Unity stamps of course!!!!

PatsyB said...

My favorite type of birthday card? Fast and easy-- because I am the world's biggest procrastinator and I always wait until the last minute! I actually made several in advance once and then couldn't find them in my craft room!! Does that mean I need to clean it?

JoAnn said...

Love the card!!!My favorite birthday card is an elegant card but also must hold a gift card!!

Gwen said...

Adorable card! Favorite cake to make? Confetti is so cute, but I love to EAT anything chocolate!!

jennifer mitten said...

I love this card - I love to make multi-layered birthday cards with all kinds of sayings and images i know the recipient will love. Lots of embossing is always a requirement for me:-)

Amanda said...

I love your card & all the colors you used! My favorite type of bday card to make is just that, I love making cards instead of buying them. I create each card with interests of the person receiving the card in mind! I'm looking for more ideas for my cards, because the layout of each card is usually similar.

Pamela said...

Absolutely love your card!!! :)

Erika M. said...

I love your card and I like to make simple sentiment birthday cards.

Nicole W. said...

BishopsMommie said...

for my children..because they mean so much to me, and becuase I usually scrap them as well...lol you have a really cute card today as well!

Suzi said...

Love your funky card. The ONLY b'day card I seem to make is the "last minute, running out the door card"! No matter how many I try to make & keep on hand, I never have the "right" one when I need it.

Brenda said...

Beautiful card AJ. I love making all types of birthday cards, but my faves are funny ones followed closely by really soft pretty ones. Thank you for the chance to win the great Unity set.

stampjourney said...

That's such a fun birthday card! I try to match the birthday cards I make with the recipient's personality--like by using their favorite colors, or making the theme of the card something they like. If I don't know, then I use bold colors and foam dots to pop presents off the page. Thanks for the chance to win!

bharsch said...

Deb Neerman said...

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

LOVE it! I do not have these stamps--must get them! I love How you made the cake with the same paper as the background! CLEVER:)

As for me--I love making layered and fun bday cards. I like to make them esp. for the person who is getting it (custom just for them!). Shows them that I care and that they mean LOTS to me:) Thanks for the chance to win!
