A Blog Named Hero Birthday Card Challenge!

Are you looking for a new challenge? I hope you'll check out A Blog Named Hero. Our challenge this month is "Birthday Cards".
I like birthday cards that have a seasonal element so I made this sweet treat with the Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream stamp set and coordinating dies. 
The stamp set has scoops and soft serve. I thought a stacked cone would be three times as sweet.
I layered the elements on a panel stamped with colorful confetti. A cherry on top of the sentiment promises something sweet inside! 
I layered the background panels in the shades of the ice cream scoops to add more color. The panels were cut with the Rounded Rectangle Infinity Dies so they were easy to cut and layer - no corner cutter this time! 
I hope you'll join us at A Blog Named Hero! We love seeing what you make!

I hope you're having a great day! I'm playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch challenge today. Here's the sketch...

I wouldn't consider myself a CAS (clean and simple) gal but I love the look. I thought I'd give this one a try using the new Reverse Confetti Mod Floral Stack stamp set. 
I used a stamping tool to repeat stamp the Mod Floral petals in a rainbow of colors on a panel of white card stock. 
All the inks are confetti colors (you can find a complete list and links below). I added a clean white die cut over the colorful petals and a simple sentiment underneath them.
Maybe you want to give this one a try too? You can get all the details here at CAS(E) This Sketch! Have a great day!

Birthday Wishes!

Boy it's hot out today! I thought I'd take a break from the sunshine and enjoy some down time indoors. My favorite way to relax is to create. I love to make cards for friends and family and adding to my birthday card stash is always a plus. 
Today I'm playing along with Seize the Birthday Challenge. This time it's "Anything Goes". My favorite set is Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Friends.
The Stitched Pieces die cut makes the best layout for the die cut friends. I inked up my card base with distress ink in the areas behind the open windows (Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Twisted Citron). I blocked off the area with removable sticky tape to keep the ink where it belongs.
The images are die cut and adhered to the card with adhesive foam tape. The optional "toppings" this challenge is sequins, but I'm loving the Pretty Pink Posh jewels lately so I used those instead. They look like party confetti and you get so many in a pack you'll be set for loads of projects. 
I love all the accessories in the kit including presents, party hats, balloons, cupcakes and more! 
Now it's your turn! I hope you find some crafty time to play today !

TupeloDesignsLLC - Hang In There!

Hi and thanks for stopping by! It's FRIDAY!!! YAYYY! I don't know about you but I'm ready for the weekend! I told you it's just too hot some days to walk Miss Moriko so I've joined a gym. I can jump on the treadmill and get my walk in with a big fan whirling over my head. A little culture shock though having to buy my first pair of gym pants - I feel like a super hero slipping into my leggings! HA! Maybe in a few more months right?
It's my day to post for TupeloDesignsLLC. I love that every time I shop there I find something new like this little sloth from Lawn Fawn.
The background was inked up with Ranger Twisted Citron distress ink. I applied it with a stencil brush so it's "line free". The brushes were my first purchase from TupeloDesignsLLC and I reach for them almost every day. They sit in a quart size mason jar on my desk. 
The little guys are stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers. You can see the Copics in the store here. The set has only one image - I attached him at different angles to look like more. 
Do you feel like making now? I hope you'll check out the store. All my back orders are caught up so shipping is getting better and better every day. You'll get free shipping every day with no coupon required (USA only - reduced rates for international orders). I sure hope you will give them a try and that you find some crafty time to create this weekend
