I've got a few last Spring Mini cards to show you, since this is the LAST WEEK of the Spring Mini, and then I'll be launching into full-on Christmas mode. I've even got a tutorial that I've been working on to show you later on this week, but it's a surprise!
I've had a busy couple of weeks, and this week I have my "Out with the Old, In with the New" Mini Catalogue Party on Wednesday night. It's going to be heaps of fun. There's a Special Guest stamper, free make-and-takes, prizes, Special offers and a goody bag to take home! I only have a couple of spots left though, so email me if you'd like to come! Then it's Jacob's 7th birthday on Thursday, so I think I'll be partied out by the end of the week.
This is one of those oh-so-difficult masculine cards, made easier with the help of the Round tab punch and the 'Tagger's Dozen' set. I used my trusty markers to ink the stripes individually and echoed the stripes by also inking the candles individually. Then I've echoed (lots of echoes here!)the asterisk candle flames with the 'twinkle' wheel, in Versamark ink, to give a tone-on-tone effect. I punched a window in the stripes with my square punch, and the "Birthdays are the Best" stamp fits perfectly in there.
