Fun and Fast Birthday!


My, this is a change in gears! lol! Like many of you, I've been neck-deep in Christmas prep but today's Blogger's Challenge is BIRTHDAY!! I also wanted to use the Splitcoast Color Challenge this week of Rich Razzleberry, Always Artichoke and Barely Banana. Thirdly, I also needed to get my Technostamper's Monday Sketch Challenge done... so I combined all three for a Triple Play!

Fun and Fast Notes is a great set to cover many different occasions; there are eight stamps, each with a different accompanying sentiment. So useful and versatile!! And fun to color in to coordinate with Designer Paper or color schemes!

The card base is Artichoke; on that is a layer of Barely Banana which has been embossed with the Finial Press Embossing Folder (love it!) and the Big Shot. A layer of Artichoke on Razzleberry is next; this is pierced at the top corners and along the bottom.

The birthday cake, stamped on white, is colored with markers and Blender Pen. A touch of Two-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter really make it sparkle IRL. This is layered on Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

The "birthday bliss" greeting is from the Birthday Bliss set; I used it because it would fit on the Modern Label Punch of Barely Banana. This was attached to a swath of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon across the entire cardfront.

Here's Technostamper Sketch #TSSC99 for this week. You can check out the list of other participants this week here.
