Colin had a birthday party to go to on Saturday and I realized I didn’t have any kid themed birthday cards in my stash. The two of us sat down and worked on this card together. Colin gave me his ideas for the stamps and colors and I pulled it all together. I used Fall to Layout 78. I haven’t pulled out my Tall Tales designer series paper in a while and it has perfect colors and images for bright and cheery cards.
I Started my card with a Brilliant Blue card stock base. It is layered with Rose Red and then Tall Tales designer series paper. I rounded 2 corners on the right hand side with the 3/16″ corner rounder and then attached a circle brad and a loop of Rose Red ribbon. The layer is attached to the card base with dimensionals. For the main image layer I punched out a 1 3/4″ circle from Watercolor paper and stamped my image in Basic Gray ink. I used an AquaPainter and re-inkers to color in the image. After I was done I sponged around the image with Bashful Blue ink. The rocket is from Pun Fun and the sentiment is Well Scripted. I stamped it in Brilliant Blue ink.
It’s snowing outside this morning so I hope to have a productive morning stamping. Evan isn’t happy with me because he’s grounded from video games until Easter. Colin is too. They feel like they are entitled to play whenever they want and they have been fighting constantly. While it’s a bit of an inconvenience for them they are starting to play with toys that haven’t seen much love in the last few weeks and are fighting a bit less. In church on Sunday we had a visiting Priest and he was supporting a charity called Food for the Poor. Colin was shocked to hear that there are kids around the world who don’t have food and even more shocked to hear that they don’t have video games everywhere. That sobered him up a bit and all day Sunday I didn’t hear him begging to play the Wii, or the Play Station or his DS.
Have a great day! I’ll be back tomorrow with something new to share.
