Happy Birthday......

Stamplorations is 3!!!
Happy Birthday.....
They are having a party and I'm joining in......
The first thing I noticed with the image was the balloons and their colours....
This is my card....
I sprayed with the blue and green colours from the balloons with Lindy sprays with Mica in them.
Of course they are not going to show up but they produce the prettiest of shimmer.
I stamped the row of cupcakes in black ink and then the numbers stamp on top.
The numbers have been heat embossed in white and the number 3 in gold.
I stamped a cherry, inspired by the photo, on top of the cupcakes 
and added glossy accents.... also to the gold number 3.
To get the red heart shaped balloon in I die cut a heart and blended the edges.
I finished off with some water splats and stamping Happy Birthday three times.
I have had a fun, crafty and inky day.

  1. The "3" embossed in gold! You're a delight! Such a fun celebration card for STAMPlorations.

  2. Wow, what a fabulous interpretation of the image. This is so well though out and the sprayed colours look great. I love how you've layered the heart but kept the stamped images lined up perfectly, and the gold number three really stands proud. The cherries on the cupcakes look so realistic with the glossy accents on them and gives your card yet another dimension. Such a fun birthday card :) X
