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

Happy Birthday


It's been a few weeks since my last post because that "work thing" has gotten in the way of my stamping time again! I finally had some time on Sunday afternoon to sit down and stamp. I have several friends with birthdays this summer so I decided to use The Paper Player's Tic-Tac-Toe challenge to make a card for my stash.

I stretched my style a little with this "scrappy" card. This isn't my usual style, but I kind of like the way it turned out.

I chose the bottom horizontal combination for my card. Like everyone, I love this new flower from SU. We've seen it all over blog-land lately. I stamped it on SU water color paper with SU Craft black ink and embossed with clear EP. I used my new Zig CLEAN COLOR Real Brush water color markers to color the image. Jennifer McGuire has 3 good YouTube videos on these new markers. They are fun! A friend gave me a set of 12 because she didn't think she would use them. Lucky me! (Now I want more colors, LOL.) Also keeping up with trends, I used the "label" style greeting stamping "birthday" with VersaMark ink on black card stock and embossing with SU white EP.
