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

For the Birthday Boy

Happy New Year!

I'm having a relaxing day, stamping and watching TV. I started off with the Rose Parade this morning, now I'm watching the Rose Bowl Game. Rooting for Stanford as my little sis is an alumni.

I saw that Kim posted the new MFTWSC157 sketch this morning, so I started my stamping with it. My colors come from a new color challenge blog called Colour Me!. Today is their first challenge which is to use a single color, Island Indigo, along with a neutral. I chose to use Crumb Cake as my neutral and make a masculine birthday card.

In the photo, the Island Indigo looks more dark blue than IRL, but I really did use Island Indigo CS and ink. The dies and stamps are from My Favorite Things.

Here is a look at the inside:

Stamps: Birthday Sentiments by My Favorite Things
Paper: SU Island Indigo, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stock and My Minds Eye patterned paper
Ink: SU Island Indigo and Crumb Cake
Other: Die-namics Triangle Screen die, Die-namics Star STAX dies, SU Crumb Cake candy dot, the Big Shot and dimensionals

Have a super week and thanks for stopping in,
