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!
