Addicted To Stamps And More #453 - Birthdays...

Hello! I hope you are ready for some inspiration for the Addicted To Stamps And More challenge. The theme this time is:

I recently reorganized my crafting area and realized that I really need to use up my stash of pretty pattern papers! 

I found this beautiful, gold foiled paper which seems perfect for a birthday card! The sentiment is from an old stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps. I stamped it thrice for an offset look.

I hope you liked my card and will create something beautiful for this challenge. You can link your creations to the ATSM gallery. Please don't forget to visit the other DT who have some incredible inspiration for you. I look forward to visiting you in our gallery.

Entering this card in the following challenges

The pattern paper and the stamp are both several years old. This is the first time I am using the pattern paper which I won as a giveaway around 5-6 years ago!

Happy Little Stamper August Watercolor Challenge...

Hi! I hope you are ready for the fresh new challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

This month we have an optional prompt for the HLS Watercolor Challenge.

I created a birthday card for today's challenge.

I started by creating a watercolor background using the Liquid Watercolors by CrafTangles. The colors I used are Lemon Tart, Pretty Peony and Soulmate. After my paper was dry, I stamped the Delightful Daisies background stamp by Whimsy Stamps with the Versafine Onyx Black ink. 

I cut a long strip around 2 inches tall. I set aside the rest of the panel for another card. I ran a piece of black cardstock through the Argyle Background embossing folder by Darice so added texture. After rounding one corner of the watercolored panel, I glued it to the card base. The sentiment is from the Altenew One Go Birthday stamp & die set by Altenew.

I hope you liked my card. I look forward to your beautiful creations in the HLS gallery. Do visit the blog for some more inspiration by my teamies.
