Birthday Wishes!

Hi Everyone!

Today I decided to play around with some stamps that I have from C.C. Designs. I decided to use the Tickled Pink Birthday Cherrie Stamp and a sentiment from the AmyR Be Happy Sentiments set. This image is absolutely adorable and I loved colouring her up with my copic markers!

  • I chose papers from the Dovecraft Tea party 8x8 paper pad collection and matched it with card stock from my stash.
  • next I stamped my image on Copic Xpress-it paper and then coloured in my image with Copic Sketch Markers
  • I cut my base layer (violet card stock) at 6 1/2 x 5", Middle layer (moss green) at 6 1/4 x 4 3/4" and the patterned paper layer at 6 1/8 x 4 5/8" 
  • I cut a second patterned piece to use with the border punch at 2 x 4 3/4", and a green piece to layer that with at 2 1/8 x 4 3/4"
  • ink all the edges of all your papers using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Antique Linen
  • using the border punch I cut 2 strips of the border pattern to add to either side of the smaller patterned paper layer.
  • Glue all your paper layers together and attach to a pre-mad 6.5 x 5" card base
  • Adhere a piece of ribbon to the left hand side of your card. Add a bow ( I use Bow-Easy to make my bows)
  • Using foam squares pop up the cut out image and sentiment onto your card to add dimension
  • I then used glossy accents on the whites of the balloons and Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the green parts of the present, her collar and hair bands
