FIRST BIRTHDAY

Just maybe as you look at this card you may think its  not such a ‘cute baby card’ but this young lady is well and truly off and running!! Baby gone!! Besides I think it’s more what Mum and Dad might like really and in this case Nan and Pop as well. Inside has cuteness!

Or maybe it was me. I wanted to play with the Chalkboard paper and ColorBox© Chalk Rose Coral  Ink I received recently, as well as the Big Day Stamp set which is one of the free sets in the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. I chose the lovely tulips from the Painted Blooms DSP as my background. One of my favorite flowers as it was my Granddads delight to grow them every year in Tasmania.

I first inked up the largest stamp with Brilliance Moonlight White and hand  colored over that on the “Celebrate” in Coastal Cabana  with the Stampin’Write pen. Stamped on to Chalkboard paper and heat set. A new addition to Stampin’up! Using my  Stamp-a-ma-jig I lined up the cake after inking with the Rose chalk. Heat dried that then added the candle, again I inked with the Brilliance then some Daffodil Delight that gave a subtle yellow. Heat dried again.  I think using these inks have given the desired  chalky effect. I quickly  cut out the image, rounded the corners and mounted it onto some Blushing Bride.

The rest of the sentiment was stamped with the coral chalk and punched out with the oval punch before backing with Blushing Bride card stock.   I mounted both pieces with some dimensionals onto the DSP that had been glued to a Blushing Bride  Note Card , added a Bakers Twine bow and card complete. OH! Just a pearl on the end of the Ice cream ! Who doesn’t love Ice cream.

Bye till next time.

Thanks for stopping bye.

    Love it Naomi. I am having a hard time thinking how to use this sheet of DSP & suddenly the light bulb has gone off. Thanks so much for sharing. I am sure the lucky person will just love her card!
