Happy Saturday, everyone! Hope life is treating everyone well and it's a nice day where you are! It's sunny here, but cold! only about 25. When's spring??
So today I got some new goodies from my Stampin Up rep. I had used the last of my Christmas bonus at work to buy them, so I was so excited when she dropped them off today!! I have a video here of everything I bought, plus a tip on getting the stamps to stick on the acrylic block once the stickers are on. they never stick for me!!
I decided to use the 'Big Day' set (which was one of my freebies!) to make a quick birthday card this morning. I colored the cake and the word birthday with distress markers. I scribbled the color onto an acrylic block, then picked up the color with a waterbrush and colored. I probably should have used watercolor paper, but didn't think about it until I was already into it.
The patterned paper is also Stampin Up, it is double sided and I just love the patterns!!
Here's a close up of the cake. I used stickles on the candles, then covered the cake itself with glossy accents to make it shine.
I mounted the cake and the sentiment with foam tape and inked the edges in black. I really like how this card turned out!
As always, thanks for visiting and be sure to follow me to stay updated on all my newest creations! :)
Have a great day!!
