I wanted to stop by today with a few birthday cards inspired by challenges that are currently open. First up I have a card that I made with Create A Smile stamps and stencils - I am so delighted to be featured over at the Create A Smile blog today! I love Christine's designs so this is a real honour :)
I stamped the cute penguin peeking out of the present from Penguin Party and masked him to sponge a background from the Lots of Stars stencil in Squeezed Lemonade distress ink. I coloured the penguin with chameleon pens and added a bit of wink of stella. So cute!
I will add this as my second entry for Create A Smile's call for a March Guest Designer.
I will also link up at CASology's current challenge where the cue card is Birthday and at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes.
I have also found time to play along with Taheerah's Cue for the Monday Blues Challenge. I loved the bright colours against the black of her inspiration photo:
I used a big sentiment from Hero Arts white embossed on black cardstock and sprayed with white and gold sprays for a bit of shimmer. I cut Papertrey Ink's scribble dies in bright colours and adhered to the black panel. Very simple but I like the way the bright colours pop against the black :)
Finally, I have managed to squeeze in a card for Winnie & Walter's First Birthday Bash. This design is for Kelly's In Rotation Technique:
I have rotated the stamp from It's a Wonderful Pennant in teal and green to create a star and combined with the sentiment from The Big, The Bold and the Happy.
I will also join up at Seize the Birthday's current Anything Goes challenge.
That's enough from me for one day....thanks for making it through to the end!
Congrats on your feature at Create a Smile...how fun! I love all three cards, Sarah! Beautiful coloring, stenciling and stamping and of course your designs are fabulous!ReplyDelete
Oh Sarah, what a fun design you created from rotating the banner stamp!! I like how you have each design anchoring a word in your sentiment. All three cards are lovely, but I'm really glad you joined the winnie & walter challenge!ReplyDelete
That peek-a-boo penguin is so cute, Sarah, and I love the bright colored Scribbles. I tried that once and had trouble getting them to stick, but that was before the matte medium craze.ReplyDelete
Featured at Create a Smile ... how fabulous, Sarah ... your sweet peeking penguin is adorable! Love the bright colours popping against the black background and what a cool triangular rotation! Anita :)ReplyDelete
