It’s the second Wednesday of the month which means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built! Today, it is Heather’s turn to host our challenge and she has chosen “Happy Birthday Cards”.
For my “Happy Birthday” card I stamped the Repeat Impressions “Mini Cupcake” and colored it with Tombow Markers. I then made a new sentiment using the “Holy Crap” plate 10600″. The sentiment was framed using a black micron and the papers are My Favorite Things.
I look forward to your entries for the “Happy Birthday Card” challenge this week over at The House that Stamps Built. Happy Wednesday!
It’s The Crafty Nurse here with a bit of Fall inspiration featuring my favorite stamp from the September Technique Junkies release the “Birches #S686”. What I love about this stamp is it can be used as both a focal image and a fabulous background. I’m also entering this in the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge for a “Rustic” project.
I began by stamping the “Birches #S686” stamp with Archival Jet Black Ink. I used the Faux Paint Swatches technique from April/May 2013 newsletter with Hero Arts Butter Bar, Pumpkin Spice, Just Rust, Cup O’ Joe, and Charcoal. I used a Simon Says Stamp “Grant Maple Die” to cut a window and embossed with a Darice Leaf folder for the center which I inked for added contrast. The sentiment is a My Favorite Things “Thanks” die that I stacked and embossed for high contrast.
I just love this time of year and this September release has given us some fabulous tools to celebrate in style.
