Cool Birthday

Hello to you! I am back with a card I made using the color palette from the new MFT Color Challenge. Also entering this to the SSSW Challenge Anything Goes.

These are the pretty colors I wanted to use:


And here comes my take:


The penguin is masked, the background inked with MFT Ripe Raspberry Ink. I used the Confetti Stencil to add the dots to the background. The image is colored with Copic Markers, the "happy" was die-cut from another panel I had inked the same way (the Big Birthday Die-namics is one plate, I just wanted to use the one word) and is popped up with another layer of white letters. The "birthday" is from BB Bitty Bears, I covered the "happy" when I inked the stamp to heat-emboss the word onto the strip of black paper.


Love this penguin, I just had to pull that set out to play! Hope your day is wonderful, thanks for visiting!

Masked Flowers

Hello to you! How are you doing out there? I hope you are all well and safe. Today, I made a birthday card for the current MFT The Birthday Project Challenge  (Flowers) and the new SSSW Challenge: Anything Goes.

Here comes my take:


This is almost an one-layer card, the center piece was masked and is not adhered to the front. I first masked that rectangle, stamped the flowers, masked them and inked the background with Distress Oxide Ink. Then I removed the masks, colored the flowers, reversed the mask of the center and applied yellow Distress Ink to it. I stamped the sentiment and added clear droplets.

Have a wonderful day everybody! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Lawn Fawn

Hello to you! The last few days I was able to spend a few minutes at my desk now and then and created a card using a cute new Lawn Fawn stamp set for the current Lawn Fawnatics Happy Birthday Challenge:



I love this adorable really high five set:


I started with a panel of white cardstock, stamped all the balloons and the critters (always masking the previously stamped image with masking paper) and applied Distress Oxide inks to create the background. After I had applied water droplets, I removed the masks and colored everything with Copics. Then I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto dark red cardstock and adhered the strip to the card. To finish it off, I added cute clay confetti.


Thanks for visiting today, stay safe (at home)!
