I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Celebrate Your BIG Day!

Hello to all,

One more work day this week, YAY! I've been doing software upgrades on Chemistry systems and it's always a little stressful. One more to go tomorrow and they will be done, for this particular software version anyway.

A new SU order arrived yesterday afternoon and I decided to use one of the new sets to make my card for the 2nd week's Paper Players 400th Celebration Challenge. This time it's a birthday card. I've used the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. This week the colors are gray, kraft, yellow and white.

The images were stamped onto Whisper White card stock using SU inks in the challenge colors. The elephants were fussy cut (I didn't buy the coordinating punch) and glued onto the stamped panel. For the sentiment, I used the Misti to stamp it in a line. On the actual stamp, it's a stacked sentiment. It's cut with a SU banner die. I matted it with a piece of granite gray card stock, then added 3 enamel dots for embellishment.

The inside:

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend. Thanks for looking in,
