Hip Hip Hooray: Birthday Card Creations by Courtney & Shellye

>>> by Courtney Lee 

Hip Hop Hooray is right!!!! This collection is fabulous from little boys to big boys and there are some great girl patterned papers too!!! Did you check out the yellow stars?!? love. And the turquoise polka dots? Match those two up with a nice bright pink and - yummy! 

The first card I made just to have on hand. Doesn't he look like a certain character from a certain movie? (I am not sure about copyright so I don't want to put the names in here!) I could have made him green like the character but this orange dot paper was too cute to pass up! 

I made the stripes on the pants from washi tape - so fun. I cut a piece about an inch long and then cut it in thirds. I didn't cut it evenly and usually that would bother me but in this case I LOVED the wonkiness! 


Did you see that I glittered his little feet with sugar coating? :) Even boy cards need a little sparkle sometimes.
Sprinkles... let's talk about doodlebug sprinkles for a minute (enamel dots)... usually my beef with embellishments that come like this is the adhesive... doodlebug has NAILED it! THEY STICK AND STAY!!! Seriously - pick some up at the store and compare them to anything else you have in your stash. They will blow them away. Don't stick them down until you mean it... because they mean business. :) LOVE that! 

Lastly, let's chat about doodlebug card stock. Did you know they made regular 12x12 card stock? And it comes in a huge variety of colors! I used three colors from the primary assortment. love love love. 

recipe for first card:

Second Card - this one was for my brother in law. He works at a hedge fund in finance and so the tie on the monster made me think of him! Is that good or bad!?! haha. He's super cute actually and so super sweet... and single... so if you are reading this and under 35 then please send me an application to date my brother ;) 

I popped up every other strand of the mini garland to give it some dimension. These mini garlands are so fun! I am so thrilled that they came out with every collection in the winter 2014 collection! Check them out if you haven't already!


recipe for second card:

Okay, this is Courtney Lee signing out today! I hope you have a beautiful day!

Hello!  Shellye along for some fun today with the HIP HIP HOORAY COLLECTION
 I never seem to have enough masculine, little guy cards on hand,
so I came up with four cute and easy versions to share with you.
Each card also focuses on the Simply Put cards, which make card-making a breeze!

Let's start with this quick, 5 minute card first:
I cut down four different pixie straws to the same width as the 
Simply Put card and glued them in place with Zip Dry.

I embellished the side with one of my favorite monsters found in the 
Pixies pack...I just attached with some brads and then added a few 
Sprinkles for added cuteness.

And who can resist this trio?  I just had to use them on a card!
I trimmed the monsters away from the 4X6 card, corner rounded the edges and 
then layered it to the top of green Sprinkles Vellum.

A row of colorful buttons were stitched with Doodle Twine and attached with
an adhesive dot.  

And we can't forget about the sweet robot dudes throughout the collection!
Here I simply die cut a couple of different patterns from the 6X6 Paper Pad
and layered on one of the stickers.

 I used one of the Simply Put cards as the background paper and highlighted
a few of the dots with round Sprinkles.

With this last card, I just loved both sides of the Simply Put card, so
I cut it in half so that I could have a bit of both patterns!

To tie the two sides together, I added a strip of orange paper, bordered by
Doodle Twine and a border sticker.  One of the Ticket sentiments and 
dinosaur man stickers completes the look. Oh and don't forget the Sprinkles :)

Thanks so much for joining us today at Doodlebug Design!
