Celebrate! Celebrate! (did you just sing?) LOL
I have a couple of cards to share with you today I decided to play over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog- you can check it out here if you would like to be challenged -http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/58/. This challenge was CELEBRATE so here is what I came up with STILL playing with the Birthday blueprint stamps STILL loving them, STILL have ideas coming to me-that's probably why I love them. First I have a 5.25" squared card which I stamped the party hat first, then I masked it off and stamped the balloon then I colored the whole deal with Distress markers, then inked and used the water brush to spread it around. I then I did another layer on the hat popping up the blue stripes then stickled them. Then I curled some twine and glued that onto my balloon. And some details. Next up I did a 3.5" square card...why such a weird sized cards you ask? WHY NOT! I just got the WRMKs envelope punch board-so the weirder the better I say! LOL Bring it on... (Love it! I Knew I would!! ) I stamped the cupcake but didn't ink up the candle then I colored it (again with distress markers), inked the edges and spread them again with the wide waterbrush. Then I added a gemstone, drew in a cherry stem and added a leaf from the seasonal flower garland which I colored with the Distress markers as well. Oh yes and both cards were stamped with sentiments from Tim Holtz's Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings stamp set. And so there you have it! Thank you Simon says Stamp for your Monday Challenge...and a GREAT excuse for using my Birthday blueprint stamps again!!
