Happy Birthday - Always Fun Challenge #146

Monday January 20, 2020

Hello and welcome to a new challenge over at

Our theme this week is 
USE YOUR FAVORITE STAMP



So since I love flowers and I used a similar stamp set last week I thought what the heck it's flowers and so a favorite and this is a new way of using. Fussy cutting the flowers out and stamping the leaves but not coloring them. This stamp set is from Simon Says. The happy birthday is from Paper Trey ink. I have always loved this stamps and this large HB is awesome. I colored the flowers with copics, fussy cut out. I used Stampin up green ink and stamped the leaves. They are hard to see but you get that something is there. I then stamped the sentiment on the orange card stock and added to the green card stock. I added this to the card front with some foam dots. I added the flowers and behind the top and bottom areas I added foam dots but the part under the sentiment is adhered straight down to the card front. I finished with some Sequins and Nuvo drops and Spectrum Noir sparkle brush.

Happy Birthday Catch the bug Day 7 of 10th birthday

Friday January 17, 2020

Today is Day 7 of our DOWN ON THE FARM birthday over at Catch the bug

Our theme is PHOTO CHALLENGE


Photo challenge


I found this awesome paper pad from JoAnn.. I think its from Debbie Mumm collection. I use to quilt all the time and I think I remember seeing fabric like this. Anyhow I have used some of the papers from this pad for this fun week of down on the farm birthday celebration. This is the Free Friday image and I went with the colors from the photo plus the barn look. I colored with copics. I fussy cut the image and added with some foam dots. I added the happy birthday and it's pretty much done. Oh I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. This was so easy since the background was so busy it didn't require more.

This image is Davy Dunderton.. I think this image is so cute and also funny.. I wanted to find a funny sentiment but cool sentiment and I didn't have a stamp so what's the next best thing to do?? Grab your phone and Google funny masculine/guitar music sentiments. I used My favorite things banner die. This one made me laugh because it's true but funny when you look at this cool dude.. I colored the image with copics. I found this background paper that I thought worked great with the image. I used My favorite things music notes and layered them a couple times to give depth and added to the card.  I had fun creating this card.. Let's see your funny..
