Birthday Card

June 13, 2016

My grandson Ethan celebrated his 10th birthday yesterday and was not overly impressed that he had to spend the day at his sister’s netball carnival.  My husband and I took Ethan and my other grandson and spent some of the day at the carnival and then we took the two boys to lunch to celebrate Ethan’s birthday and belatedly celebrate Noah’s birthday from May.

So when you have new goodies just landed on your desk you definitely need to get them out and play (work) with them.    Ethans-10th-birthday-closeuI just loved this stamp set when I saw the examples at our Onstage Local event earlier this year and was especially inspired by this one on Pinterest by Julie at the Way We Stamp.  Anyway, to begin I embossed Whisper White card using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, attached it to Pacific Point card and then scored and folded Tempting Turquoise card.   I stamped the image from Marquee Messages onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I stamped the same image onto Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point card.  I cut out the various sections of the images and attached them to the image stamped on Whisper White card.  Then cut out the whole image – yes I know truly a labour of love.   Ethans-10th-Birthday-card-iI stamped the greetings, both from the Marquee Messages stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.   This is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  To decorate the inside I stamped the greeting which is from the Marquee Messages stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the guitar image which is from the Skating By stamp set (retired) onto Crumb Cake card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used my Early Expresso Stampin’ Write Marker to add a little extra colour.  Ethan loves playing his guitar and I thought he would appreciate both the greeting and the guitar.

Have you had a chance to have a good look through the new catalogue yet?  There is just so much to love.  I hope I have inspired you to take another look at this fun stamp set.  If you haven’t got a copy then you can check out the catalogue by clicking on the photo in the right hand column and if you don’t have a demonstrator then please contact me to get your copy of this fabulous catalogue.

Bye for now,
