Shay's Birthday Surprise Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to a Surprise Birthday Blog Hop for sweet Shay from Winnie & Walter
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHAY!!!
We love you and wanted to make something special for you, so Julie organized this.
Some of us were able to make a video to send you birthday greetings, and here comes mine:



And, of course, I made a card for you! I was inspired by your fab card from this post here. Here comes my take:


I didn't use the technique with the crayons, but stamped my cupcakes onto watercolor paper with permanent ink, then applied water to the panel and applied Distress Inks to "color" the images. After it was dried, I matted the right edge with black cardstock and adhered the panel to the cardbase. Then I die-cut a lot of tiny stars from various cardstock and adhered them. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and adhered this with foam tape. I hope you like it!
Again, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You are wonderful!
Here is our blog hop list:


Hugs,
Vanessa

supplies:
Winnie & Walter Sugar Rush stamp set - Tsukineko ink - Ranger Distress Inks - Mama Elephant die
