Late night tonight. Hubs is on call for Hospice so I stay up and craft while he charts. I wanted to play in the Stamplorations 2nd Birthday Linky party, so I made a couple birthday cards.
This first one I was inspired by the new party dress stamp set at Stamplorations. I have a couple dress stamps but I decided to use my Stampin' Up dress form die. I was also inspired by the current Curtain Call challenge to use some gold party favors.
I had some background paper I made a while back with my Dylusions sprays and so I cut the form from it. I used a border stamp on the bottom of the dress form and another one for a little necklace around the neck.
I used a background stamp for my card background, inked it with Peacock Feathers distressed ink, spritzed it then stamped. After it dried I added some gold stars (Paper Sweeties) and gold strings (Papertrey Ink stamp). The party hat die (Taylored Expressions) and balloon die (Paper Sweeties), I cute from gold glitter paper. I cut a black balloon too to add a little "shadow" with the gold ballonn. The large streamer is also Paper Sweeties and the small one is Taylored Expressions. I stamped the sentiment stamp, a Michaels $1 Bin stamp in Versafine black. I adhered it all to a black background cut with a rectangle stitched die from Lil Inker Designs. I finished the card off with some red candy dots from Stampin' Up and purple enamel dots.
