Seize The Birthday Challenge - Washi Tape


Welcome to another great challenge over at Seize the Birthday!
And thanks to everyone who played along last time!

Our "Toppings" option this time is...
" Washi tape"



Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!


If your not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!



For my card I have layered some wash tape over card stock and then used a word die from
My Favorite Things to cut out the 'Happy' before attaching to my card. To get the dimension I also cut the die from some foam tape as I find that the easiest way to raise intricate die cuts.
I also added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the blue strip at the bottom of the card 
which looks very pretty in real life :)


I also used the extra scarps to make a more simple version with an embossed background.


Supplies:
Cardstock: Soft Sky and white
Stamps and Dies: My Favorite Things
Other: Sequins, Washi Tape, Impressions plate by Papertrey Ink, Wink of Stella clear glitter pen

Just Add Ink Challenge #236 - Inspiration Challenge

Hello! It's time for a fun Inspiration Challenge over at Just Add Ink this week and I love this image, there are so many different ideas that come from it.



My first instinct was to go with the peacock theme but since I didn't have any peacock or feather stamps I decided to use the cake and colours as my inspiration.

To add more interest to the sentiment I stamped it first in Island Indigo ink and then again in Cool Caribbean to create a shadow effect.


Supplies:
Stamps: My Favorite Things
Cardstock/Ink: Stampin' Up! Night of Navy, Old Olive and some gold card
Other: Dies by MFT, Flowers by Kaiser, Stitching, Impression plate by Papertrey Ink.
