Two Cards Today! A Birthday Card and a Birth-Day Card!

I hope you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend? We have been to B&Q already this weekend to get the supplies to start painting the new extension this week :-/ but we are yet to start. Today, we will start today...
But before that, cards! As you probably know the exciting new catalogue is going to be with us soon (4th June) but the downside of that is we will be losing lots of the lovely current stamps and dies. So I figured as I have so much to share still I would do a double card post today ;-)
The first card today is one I made this card for my eldest boys birthday a while ago...
 I started by randomly watercolouring a piece of watercolour card before drying. Die cut with the Celebrate You thinlints and then stack it onto three more die cuts made from thick white card.
TIP: Use a coordinating colour card to layer up your sentiment (see next card) for a different effect.
 Pop up the centre section using the rectangle framelits (a similar technique to THIS card) and finish with stars, a heat embossed sentiment, some enamel shapes and a little twine :-)
 And for the second card today I have a new baby card or a different kind of  Birth-Day card ;-)
I made this for my lovely friend who had a beautiful baby boy recently and I just couldn't resist making an Eclipse card using the Large Letters framelits and the First Steps stamp set to make this...
 The "Welcome Baby" sentiment is layered as before but this time using the Well Written dies - which are not retiring, Yay!
TIP: Use foam strips to pop up the letter die cuts and make this card super speedily!
 I do love an eclipse card, it just makes any card special. Sadly this stamp set and letter dies will be leaving us though, this catalogue change :-( I'm seriously going to miss these both of these items, although I'm definitely keeping both of mine.
If you love these or other items too, then please be sure to order your favourites before the 3rd June...
OK, so that's my two for one deal for today!
I hope you've enjoyed today's makes and I'll be back soon with even more :-D
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy your bank holiday weekend, whatever you're up to :-)
