So when I saw a swap for the On Stage (Convention) for Stampin' UP! demonstrators in Phoenix, and knew I was planning to attend, I joined without hesitation. This swap was a challenge to make birthday cards! I'm in!
So here is my card:
The base is Cucumber Crush and there's a layer of Basic Black. Then the fun begins.
I inked up my Writing Notes stamp with Tempting Turquoise ink and stamped it on Shimmery White card stock. Then I began stamping balloons, using images from Birthday Banners. Fortunately these are easy to punch out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, and they are adhered with SNAIL or Dimensionals (and some have pieces of Black Bakers Twine attached).
And the Birthday from Marquee Messages was stamped in Real Red ink. Sounds easy...but lots of steps to create 14 of them!
Go ahead--create a REAL birthday card for your friend or family; I guarantee they'll love it!
