So, in the struggle to keep the birthday card stash populated, I made a couple of cards using ink blending and emboss resist techniques.
I have this lovely older stamp set from Unity, and I'm not sure what its name is, but it's really adorable, and I was happy to get an excuse to use it.
I made these--
Lets just say I used ALL the inks in both the yellow and pink color families, because I am just too lazy to type out all of those names.
I did sneak in a Stampin' Up sentiment with the "happy birthday", because the font really paired well with the Baby cakes sentiment from the cupcake stamp set.
I got in and added lots of dots with my white gel pen, and added a handful of tiny pearls to push that idea along.
These were fun and easy, and great stash builders. I love them!
The yellow one went to a distant friend. I am trying really hard to work the whole #imbringingbirthdaysback thing. It seems to be more of a birthdays/hello thing for me (mostly because I have a huge glut of hello cards), but I really like being prompted to have the motivation to actually SEND some of the cards I make.
If I have your mailing address, you should probably expect something from me at some point; especially if I have your birthday handy. It all takes time...
Thanks so much for dropping by!
