January 27, 2022 – Wish big!

Birthday, Dull Glossy Paper

A little break from valentines with yesterday’s sympathy and today’s birthday card. I love these skinny candles and love blending the alcohol ink markers. I had one little issue with the dark blue that it just wasn’t blending well. I tried putting it on first and then the lighter color and then tried reverse. Not sure why it dried so fast but oh well! That sometimes happens. Things don’t always go as planned. Still love how these look though!

Stamps: B302 Wish Big, EE53 Skinny Candles, C302 Blow Out the Candles

The candles come in a set of reverse images so when stamped together, there is more variation. There is also a cutting die for them if we needed one to pop up. Link is here > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/cdee53-skinny-candles-cutting-die-cd5-skn-cnd-ctt

For the inside:

G350 > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/g350-bday-brilliantly-fantastic-g35-bdy-brl-fnt

Or

G352 > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/g352-celebrate-bday-special-g35-clb-bdy-

I haven’t decided which one to use yet but am leaning more towards G350.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

Happy birthday with alcohol inks – March 24, 2020

alcohol ink, Birthday

For this card, the alcohol inks had some funky color combinations that came by accident. Maybe it is just me, but I like them! Wanted to add some more interest with the inside insert so added the candles and the wish big stamped on a kraft sticker.

Hope everyone is doing well! Glad for technology to stay in touch with loved ones. Anyone getting creative with the food in their pantry? Recipe ideas welcome!

Good Afternoon!  Well, I have most of the orders done (not all but getting there!) and the dirty clothes are just about done but the house really needs some cleaning 🙂  I really need to take the time in the morning to get it clean…it’s driving me crazy.

Took the time to use the new candles stamp.  It is so versatile !  This is what it looks like…it is a mirror image stamp:

I also used the Naughty or Nice fun cube which is really a Christmas fun cube but easily adapts to a birthday with the Wish Big side
