TSMONDAY, Happy Birthday!



Hello, well I'm hoping this is a more productive week, last week was pretty much a write off for me!

Before I get to the card details, I just want to Welcome Julie, she is now a full time member of the Totally Stampalicious Design Team, so Welcome Julie!

The new Guest designers have been picked for April and May! Congratulations to Heather and Lynda! For your chance to win a Guest Designer Spot, all you have to do is play in the weekly challenges! This weeks is easy, make a birthday card and upload it to the Totally Stampalicious Blog for your chance to win!

Ok so onto my card. Today I used Present Scarlette. She's coloured with copics, and cut out with a label #4 die. To make the mat, I used a label #8 die, but the sides were straight, so I put the image panel on top close to the edge on one side and hand cut around the curves and then did the same for the other side...hope that makes sense!

I made this for yesterday's Featured Stamper challenge FS217. This weeks featured stamper is Irene aka DandI93! Irene always has great ideas, and so she has a gallery full of fabulous inspiration! I cased this card.

The card base is early espresso with a layer of wild wasabi. Then the bottom piece is Basic Greys Curio (love it) and the top is very vanilla embossed with the textile EF. I added sme crystal brads.

The sentiment is all one stamp, but I masked it out and stamped the first line in wild wasabi and used it on the front of the card. The rest was stamped in early espresso on the inside.

The present edge was made with a fiskars punch.

I'm also entering this in this weeks Bugaboo Catch the Bug Challenge, anything Goes!

Now it's your turn, happy stamping!
Have a Great Day!
Laurie
