Holidays and Birthday Parties

DSC03695_sml.jpg
Just sharing a card I made for DD1’s 10th Birthday. Her birthday is always in the  holidays……so it invariably ends up being a whole week of celebrations. This time around, she scored 4 birthday cakes…..so she did very well for herself!!
Some friends from school came over and we did some papercraft and played Singstar (I sang along in the background lol)
Here’s what I used to make the cupcake card which I CASE’d from one of our Demonstrator publications –
Stamps :Cupcakes standard Stampin’ Around Wheel, Polka Dot background stamp, Occasional Greetings stampset
Ink : Basic Black standard cartridge, Basic Black Classic inkpad, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Ridinghood Red Classic Inkpad, Rose Red and More Mustard Stampin’ Write Markers
HINT – Using the Wheelguide I rolled the image out on pre-cut Glossy White cardstock (it does dry, just leave it a couple of minutes!!) then I used my Sponge Daubers to pick up ink from the inkpads and just sponged on the colour to give the images an air-brushed look – great for those of us who can’t colour inside the lines lol.
Paper : So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Glossy White  cardstock
Accessories :  Bashful Blue Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Stampin’ Around Wheel Guide (a must when your using wheels and want your image to be straight and clearly stamped every time), Sponge Daubers, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Anywhere Gluesticks.
We actually had a few other birthdays to celebrate this month……so one week of the holidays, the kids and I made some birthday cards to store away and use when needed.
Here’s the result of our afternoon of stamping:

Making all your cards for the month in one go makes it easy when it comes to party preparation!
My daughter convinced me that I needed to add this stampset to my collection. It’s called Just Jawing…….not really my style (not sure if I even have “a style”!!) but lots of fun to play with all the same.
I was putting in some orders a couple of weeks ago and decided to get the Gratuitous Graffiti background stamp with my hostess benefits……..this is a really cool background stamp and I’m looking forward to playing with it a bit more 🙂
Here’s a rundown of  what the kids used to create their friend’s birthday cards –
Stamps : Just Jawing, Gratuitous Graffiti stampsets (hat on the skull card hand drawn by artist – I. Webb 😉
Ink : Basic Black Classic stamp pad, Pixi Pink, Pink Passion, Brilliant Blue Stampin’ Write Markers
Paper : Pacific Point, Pink Passion, Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories : Chunky Sprinkles, Fine Supernova glitter (HINT : You can mix these two types together for a really cool effect), Tombow Adhesive, Crimper, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
