Birthday Girl

The more I see the Loralie Art Stamps, the more I like them. They are so fun and fresh and you can do so much with them. My first Loralie stamp is Birthday Girl and here's the card I created with her...

I wanted to keep my card playful! After stamping the Birthday Girl image, I colored her skin, eyes and hair with my Copic markers but decided to paper piece the clothes and hat. For her shoes, I colored them with my Smooch inks to give them a nice metallic look. I also paper pieced the center of the cake and if you look closely you can see that it was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder then covered with white Smooch ink so it looks pearlized. After she was all finished I cut the image out with my Spellbinders Labels Ten then smudged chalk all around her in the background.

The top half of the card was embossed with the Cuttlebug Birthday Embossing Folder and I used patterned paper and flag banners from the Sassafras Lass Nerdy Bird collection to embellish (and paper piece her clothing). The present is also a stamp from the set that was colored with Copics and white Smooch ink (ribbon/bow). A piece of pink floss tied into a bow and a sentiment sticker finished off my card.

Join me tomorrow to see another Loralie card used in conjunction with my new Spellbinders Pennants! See you then!
