"Happy Birthday Tilda"

Monday, March 7, 2011


Sorry about that, I normally post on Sundays and Wednesdays, but got tied up shopping. Joann's now carries the Spellbinder dies in the four pack set. The were 40% off and are normally $79.99 plus tax. On sale they were $51.99 including the tax. Great buy, I could not resist.

Today's card I decided would be a Birthday card. I usually make them up ahead of time. That way the wife does not catch me by surprise. I made this card using two Magnolia images, Tilda the Cook and the Cupcake. Tilda was stamped and then masked. Then the Cupcake was stamped.

"Happy Birthday Tilda"

The images were colored with my Copic markers. Some pink Stickles was added to the sprinkles on the cupcake. I added some half pink pearls from "Hero Arts" to add some dimension.

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment was stamped in two colors of ink. A light pink and a light bule to match up with the colors of the image. No, I'm not that steady of a stamper to achieve the effect. I use a Stamp Positioner to achieve the effect. Here is a closer look at the "Happy Birthday" sentiment.


"Happy Birthday Shadow Effect"



All and all I think the card turned out quite well.
What do you think?
Hope you enjoy my belated post and that you will leave a comment. All comments are welcome and appreciate.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!!

    Very cute Bob! Yes, it is always a good idea to have a "stash"... don't know how many times I've been asked to whip up a card on short notice. ;)

    Love the colours and the yummy cupcake with Stickles!
