Star Birthday



Hey everyone! Here is a fun card I made inspired by the one Kristina Werner did on Jennifer McQuires blog a while back. I started with a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Paper that I folded into an A2 size card. I then took a Prima Star Stencil, and inked it with white ink, let that dry thoroughly then used Distress ink in, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Dusty Concord through the same stencil with it being slightly offset.

I then took a piece of vellum from my stash (it is provocraft vellum but Bazzil would work wonderfully), Heat embossed a happy birthday sentiment and a boarder from some stamp sets from my stash (I can’t remember which ones as I forgot to write them down, I appologize.) Cut a flag into the one side and glued it on, I then used white Scrappers Spool thread and wrapped it around a few times tying a bow. The sequins are from Neat and Tangled

Fantastic Feathers

Feathers 1


Yay for more birthday cards, its that time of year that I am doing trade shows and these are a big seller for me

I die cut the largest feather out of the Spellbinders  Shapeabilities Feathers in craft foam, I then took some Gelatos and mixed a small amount of them in a blue and a pink into some Golden light molding paste. I think adhered my craft foam stamp onto a block using temporary adhesive (this stamp is reusable as long as you clean it). I coated my “stamp” using a pallet knife with my tinted molding paste and stamped the feather, then dried it and stamped the second flower.

Feathers 2


I used a happy birthday sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons Set  using Hero Arts Charcoal Shadow ink. Took the Prima Color Bloom Spray in Sunshine  and randomly splattered the color on the backround (I can not find the link for this in my list for at the bottom but I know SSS has it in stock)


Feathers 3


Finished it off with adding some random enamel dots from my stash

Distress Glitter

This is the best, chunky, vintage glass looking glitter ever. Without it being glass! I truly love this stuff the colours are phenomenal, and they are ink-able which makes them even better!! Just try them, trust me.


Happy Crafting,
