Yippee Birthday


Hi everyone!  The week is winding down....still lots to do, but I took some time out to make a birthday card for my great-nephew, who will be turning two this weekend!  It uses the Freshly Made Sketches sketch; the House of Cards April color palette; and the Retrorubber Challenge to use baby animals!

I used some Lawn Fawn plaid paper with the little puppy image from SU's Storybook Friends, which is from 2012:

 

I cut the DSP, as well as a Tip Top Taupe border, with a scalloped stitch border die from Pretty Pink Posh, and stamped the puppy in Chocolate Chip ink and did some watercoloring.  I took a chance that it wouldn't bleed, but unfortunately, it did a little bit; I should have used a blender pen instead:


(I doubt my nephew will care that it bled a little!)  I added a sentiment from the same set, cut it out with a stitched die and added some stitched stars embellished with some candy dots:


And Cassidy wanted to make her own card for him....she used the set I Dig You and chose her own colors and DSP:


I did do the cutting, but she laid it out and put it together!!!


Hope you have a wonderful day and be blessed!

  3. Isn't it so exciting to have a "stamper" coming up in the ranks? Is Dana crafty too? The dog is so sweet and I think he could look like that with the watercolor bleed. Your GN will be very pleased.

  19. Hi LeAnne! I am SO in love with this card! I love the colors but that dog! I went looking because I just knew I had these stamps! I couldn't find them! I hope it is because they are well hidden or that I gave them to my niece but I want them back! Adorable card! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber!!
