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

Happy Birthday


Here's a very post for a very quick card that I made late this afternoon after work. The sketch is from CAS(E) this Sketch 120 and the colors are from Color Throwdown 339.

The inside:

I used all My Favorite Things stamps and dies to make this super simple birthday card. It looked rather plain until I added the sequins and baker's twine embellishments.

Stamps: Birthday Chalkboard set by My Favorite Things
Paper: Taylored Expressions gold, yellow and black card stock, SU whisper white card stock
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Other: Die-namics daisy die, sequins, baker's twine, the Big Shot, dimensionals

Hope your weekend is starting out well. Thanks for looking,
