HAPPY BIRTHDAY (49)

I created a birthday card with the Ewe are the Best stamp set from My Favorite Things.


For the background I used Apricot cardstock. I masked off a circle and repeatedly stamped the words 'happy birthday' in Peachy Keen Ink. WHen I remove the mask, you will see the words in a circle.

I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Sheep: E00 - E11 - E04/ W0 - W3/ W5 - W7
Flowers: YR61 - YR02/ Y11 - Y02/ BG18 - BG72
Balloon: YR61 - YR02
Hat + heart: R32 - R35


I fussy cut the images and adhered them to my background. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock, using again the Peachy Keen ink. I trimmed it to a small strip and added it to the card.

I used a white gelly roll pen to add dots and highlights.

CONGRATS MOM (1)

I'm on the Lawn Fawn Blog today with this Magic Iris card. I used the Swan Soirée stamp set for this birthday card, that I made specially for my mother who just celebrated her 64th birthday.


Since I don't have the Cover Plate Add-On yet, I have to make sure the Magic Iris blends into the background. I used Oxide Inks for the background, the outside ring and the 'sausages' that form the iris that opens and closes. I used three colors: Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Blueprint Sketch. I added splatter with Blueprint Sketch.


I also die cut grass, using the Meadow Borders die set. I ink blended the grass with Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Oxide Inks. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment onto the front grass border.


After I assembled the ring, I stamp the images. I colored everything with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:

Baby swans: W0 - W2 - W3/ Y15 - Y17
Lilly pads: YG03 - YG13
Lotus: R01 - R32 - R35
Cattails: E55 - E57/ BG93 - BG96
Log: E53 - E55 - E57


I fussy cut the images and assembled the card. I added most of the images to the outside ring of the Magic Iris. For the tab, I used Blue Jay and Peacock cardstock.


It's an effort, but when it's done it is totally worth your time. I really love how it turned out.
