I am so happy making cards other than Christmas cards :)
And what better occasion than a 14 year old birthday celebration. Its for one of my friends son's in Germany.
I love those Avery Elle balloon dies. I cut them in fun foam, so you have some dimension and no shipping problems. Added Washi tape as background. The fun sentiment is by My Favorite Things. Added some loose thread to the balloons.
Stamping Royalty - Washi Tape
Mod Squad challenge - one die cut
Stamp Ink Paper - anything but Christmas
Seize the Birthday - anything birthday
SSS Wednesday – Party (birthday party, of course!)
And here is card #2:
I made this for the current Make it Monday feature over at Papertrey. The theme is adding color to stamped images. I don't have Gamsol, as suggested by the talented and creative Laurie, but I have Inktense pencils and water. It works like a charm :)
I used my brand new Woodland stamps. Its a little hard to see, but I added those little berries to the branches in Platinum ink. Subtle, but pretty.
