Make A Wish


Since I didn't have much stamping time this weekend I made a quick and easy card with this new Hero Arts Clear Design set called Birthday Frames . I love it that there are four different birthday images in that set. And some of them can easily be adapted for masculine birthday cards. I need those the most with all the grands and two sons.

I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Tombow markers. Then I used scissors to cut around the scalloped edge. I matted the main image to Baby Pink Prismatics medium, then to Frosted Kiwi Prismatics and last to Suede Brown Prismatics dark.

I popped up the main image with foam tape for dimension. The designer paper is from the Penny Lane collection by My Mind's Eye called Tiny Dancer . The green horizontal strip in the center is the reverse side of that same Tiny Dancer paper.

I pierced some holes in the pink horizontal mat. The brown burlap string is by May Arts.


Just for fun, I wanted to punch out a series of the circles to pop up with foam tape on the bottom of the card. But as many circle punches as I own, I couldn't find one that size. Finally it hit me...what about my new Easy Brad Maker Kit ? The smallest circle punch in that set was the perfect size! I just love it when things work out like that!

Thanks for stopping by tonight. I hope you're all having a good week (so far)!
