Did it seem to anyone else that the week sort of flew by? Wow. I feel like it was just Monday. I blinked and all the sudden it was Friday. And tomorrow it will be March. How did THAT happen? LOL
Today I have a little birthday card share featuring the Simon Says Stamp Stinkin' Cute Stamp Set (it's from awhile back but I hadn't gotten the chance to use it yet), my favorite background stamp SSS Wide Stripes Background and a balloon and greetings from the new SSS Birthday Balloons and SSS Birthday Messages stamp sets.
The tone on tone background was created with SSS Mint Cardstock, SSS Mint Ink and the SSS Wide Stripes Background.
I added some dimensional stars with the Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil and Mother of Pearl Modeing Creme.
I colored the cute little skunk in with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol before adding detail with glitter and gel pens. I cut him out and adhered him with foam adhesive to my card.
I stamped the balloon from the SSS Birthday Balloons stamp set using SSS Cotton Candy Ink. I added stars from the same stamp set with SSS Mint Ink and stamped the balloon over the image again using Versamark Ink and adding Iridescent Sparkle Embossing Powder ove the balloon and heat setting it for a glittery finish.
I used quite a few supplies from Simon Says Stamp's Spring 2014 Release for my card today.
Be sure to check out all the amazing new goodies SSS has for us here:
