Dotty Birthday

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! I get my hair colored today! Yay!! I love to lighten it up for summer! I am making progress on all my stamping that I need to get done before next Thursday! Wow!!! I can't believe it's coming up so fast! We have been planning this trip since last August! So much to do!! But I do think it's all under control. As long as I don't have anymore surprises like last week when my car decided to die. Ugh! Thankfully that is getting fixed and while it is an unexpected expense, I am relieved it wasn't any worse than it was. 

I had stamp club with some very fun ladies last night! It was fun to get together even though we really missed our friend, Becky. Today's card was one of the club cards from last night. I really like this set! Actually, there are two sets on this card. The dots at the bottom are from a set called Dotty Angles. I think that is going to be a favorite, too! The birthday greeting is from a set called Age Awareness. Again, I think this one will be popular, too! Anyway, both of these sets are photopolymer sets. LOVE them!!! They stamp up really nice and you can place them perfectly! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Sahara Sand
  • Stamp the dots from Dotty Angles in Sahara Sand at the bottom of the card base
  • Make a tag from Whisper White 
  • On the tag start by stamping the "birthday" in Island Indigo at the bottom of the tag and then stamp the "happy" above that (makes it easier) then stamp just the bottom part of the balloon using Tangelo Twist
  • Stamp the balloon again onto another piece of Whisper White and cut out the balloon part (not the string) and adhere to the tag (you will just adhere the bottom part of the balloon to the tag - the rest hangs off)
  • Tie a piece of Island Indigo 1/4" cotton ribbon through the hole of the tag
  • Punch a piece of Tangelo Twist card stock using the dotted ribbon scallop punch and adhere to bottom of tag
  • Adhere tag to card with dimensionals
There you have it! Be sure to check out the early bird savings on the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection! We will be starting soon! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
