A magical day!

Hello my friends!

Today I was in a pretty crafty mood….so I decided to made one more birthday card…since they are always handy to have around! And these squirrels from Neat and Tangled are simply adorable…I couldn’t resist using this stamp set! I am not a very ‘pink’ person…yet I really like the combination of pink and brown… and I believe that this card turned out quite sweet and perfect for a girly girl! Isn’t it? 🙂

Quick Instructions:

I used a circle die to create a window for my card and I stamped the happy birthday all around it using black Archival ink. With the same ink, I stamped the little elements all around, making sure I rotated the images to create more interest. I used watered-down Zigs to color the images and the background. I added some Clear Wink of Stella on the big hearts to give a tiny bit of sparkle to the card. Next I stamped the squirrel on white cardstock and colored it with Winsor and Newton watercolors. I fussy cut it. Then I adhered everything on my card panel. Once everything was in place I stamped the sentiment inside the window in Hero Arts Bubble Gum ink.

  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
  • Neat and Tangled – My favorite nut stamp set
