Happy Birthday Ava

April 8, 2015

My youngest granddaughter Ava celebrated her 5th birthday with a morning tea on Good Friday, although her birthday was actually earlier in the week.

Avas-5th-BirthdayI created a Side Step card following the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers.  I used Sahara Sand card for the base and added layers of Soft Sky and Whisper White.  I stamped the greeting from the Big Day stamp set (Sale-A-Bration stamp set) onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black inkAvas-5th-birthday-2I coloured parts of the image using my Wisteria Wonder Blendibilities (also sadly unavailable).  I stamped the cake from the same stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and this image is coloured using Wisteria Wonder and Soft Sky Blendibilities.  After colouring the image I cut it out and added it to the card front using dimensionals.  I used the Celebrate Today stamp set to create five balloons using Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder and Soft Sky ink.  The additional layers were added using Island Indigo and Elegant Eggplant ink.  Avas-5th-bithday-3I used the matching Balloon Framelits Dies to cut out the balloons and the banner.  I also cut a No. 5 from Soft Sky card using the Typeset Alphabet Dies  (retired), attached it to Window Sheet and then added it between the balloons.  I love creating cards that are slightly different for my grandchildren.Ava's-gift-bag

To house her present I re purposed a gift bag I had in my stash.  I added a A4 sheet of Whisper White to Pretty in Pink card and attached it to the front of the bag (which also covered the shop logo). Once again I used the Celebrate Today stamp set to create my five balloons using Crumb Cake, Early Expresso, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant inks..  I attached Linen Thread to the ends of the balloon and used the letter “R” to anchor the other end.  I cut the letters for “happy birthday” from Wisteria Wonder using the retired Typeset Alphabet Dies.   Avas-gift-bag-and-cardI think the card and gift bag turned out so cute.  I know that Ava thought so, what do you think?

Bye for now,
