they say it’s your birthday!

Today is July 1st — how the heck did that happen? I needed to get a birthday card in the mail to my little sister, stat! So I whipped up this one in 15 minutes with the help of my trusty Hero Arts daubers, new Studio Calico stamps, and my silhouette. It’s kinda bright. :)

I made the splats by tapping pounding a dauber HARD on the card. Watch out, this is messy. So protect your desk and yourself. (You have been warned.) But it does relieve stress, ha!

The stamp set that I used that comes with a die for the birthday — but when Studio Calico sent mine to me for the Inked 2.0 class they weren’t ready yet. So I improvised with the silhouette. I like the die better though! :)

It’s so hard to capture the NEON glow of this card — the camera just doesn’t quite do it justice!

And, I used a charcoal dauber to go over the “birthday” — I had cut it out of gray polka dot paper but it just didn’t pop enough with all the neon.

    Pretty card and I like the “speedy” design. I can identify with the messiness part. A while back, I was stamping a cute little bird in Archival Jet Black ink so I could water color it. It flipped right out of my hand and landed upside down right on my favorite khaki capri pants. They are now my favorite khaki capri crafting pants. For fun, I wore them to a crafting day at a friend’s house.
    Have a fabulous Fourth of July and thanks for the inspiration!
