Hi Everyone: I have been off this week and it is so nice to get some of the odd jobs done that there just isn’t time to do on a weekend….wash and wax the car, clean the office, go shopping (yeah!!), work on cards and my Stampin’ Up! business (double yeah!). You will notice that I have also been working on my blog and adding some pages which will take you to my Stampin’ Up!
I would like to congradulate Paige
who was the successful winner of CSN challenge over at Jax Bean Stalks
The card I am sharing today is a birthday card for Brody. June is a busy month for birthdays, graduations, Father’s Day and I wanted to get a head start of some of these cards.
Stamps: Party Hearty
Paper: Night of Navy, Bravo Burgundy, Brocade Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Night of Navy,
Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Dazzling Diamonds, Versa Mark, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Brads, So Saffron marker
1. The card base is Night of Navy and the dimensions are 51/2 x 41/4.
2. Layer #2 is the Brocade Blue CS, layer #3 is Bravo Burgundy with Whisper White layered. The “b is for birthday was stamped using Bravo Burgundy with a smooch of the Champagne Mist
3. Layer #4 is half of the Top Note Die and the party hats were stamped using the versa mark and then attached using brads.
4. Finally, the sentiment “party hearty!” was stamped on the Brocade Blue with Night of Navy and the candles stamped using Night of Navy and the So Saffron marker. The candles were given some dazzle with DD.
I thought I would also share another picture from the Kamloops Wildl Life Park. It’s a golden eagle with its handler. My goodness it was a very big bird and there certainly was a bond between the two as the handler would rub its head with her chin and he would kiss her back on her cheek.
