Happy Birthday


Hello there

I’m here tonight to share three cards.

My first is this  birthday card that fits with the My Favourite Things Sketch 342.  The main section uses double colour stencilling using MFT Funky Florals Stencil and Abandoned Coral Distress Ink.  (Sadly it looks more orange in the photo but IRL it is a pretty coral shade.) The raised birthday greeting uses MFT Happy Greetings die. I added Wink of Stella to the raided letters and flower centres.

The top section was sponged in grey and then over stamped in the same colour using MFT Woodgrain Background Stamp.  I then stamped the woodgrain again and clear embossed it to give some shine and interest.

Challenges are: MFTWC342, MFT Color Challenge 73, Wednesday’s Creative Inspirations – Anything Goes and Addicted to Stamps and More – Anything Goes.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
