Birthday cards

Well I've finally had a chance to sit down and make some cards! This is the card I've chosen for the Birthday Sundaes Challenge found here:  http://birthdaysundaes.blogspot.com/2011/03/our-1st-challenge.html
This I made for a male co worker.  The stamp is by Stampendous (Asian Collection).  I stamped it on a piece of material which is like suede and it has a texture to it.  I used StazOn ink.  It stamped lightly so I had to go over it with a Sharpie which made a huge difference.  I just can't get the lighting right...so frustrating.
I love this House Mouse stamp, colored with chalks and then I used Stickles on the confetti.  Have I mentioned how much I love the Crystal and Stardust Stickles??  LOL!!
Hello Kitty for a friend...yes she's in her 30"s and loves Hello Kitty...good thing she has a little girl!  LOL!  Kitty is a Sizzix die, I ran the bow through the Cuttlebug with the swirl folder then used Stickles.  the felt flower w/gem is from Michael's dollar bin.  The paper is old and I don't remember who makes it but I did get it at Joann's I think.  The metal candle piece I got from an old neighbor who used to make them where she worked.  That was a real score  :)  I used a scallop edge punch on the bottom.  The inside sentiment reads "Some people never grow up! Happy Birthday!"

Here is the same fabric.  It really isn't this bright orange in person.  I stamped it but didn't go over this one with Sharpie.  I put Stickles on the cup/steam.  I don't remember who makes this coffee/tea stamp set but I just recently bought it at Joann's and threw out the insert.  I'll have to start writing the co. name on the sets.  The paper is from an old paper stack.  The black corners are a scalloped Spellbinders square cut diagonally.  And I inked the edges in black.
Another card same supplies/techniques.
