It's a Birthday Fiesta

Hold onto your hats!  You're not going to believe it, but I actually had some time to blog about a few cards I have made over the last few weeks.  Sometimes, miracles do happen!

Let's not waste any time getting to the first card because I couldn't wait to share with you!  I don't know when it happened, but I have fallen head over heals for the Festive Birthday Suite (on pgs. 10-11 in the Annual Catalog)!  

It wasn't love at first when I first saw this Suite in the Catalog.  But the more I saw it, the more I realized that it was tons of fun and fit my crafting style perfectly!  The colors in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper are SO me...don't you agree?!

And when I saw Heidi Baks' Fiesta Tag Time card, I had to get in on the fun too.

I didn't make my Birthday Fiesta Card exactly like hers; I changed a few things.  I just LOVE that streamer paper in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper, so I used it as my background.  It's so fitting!

The watercolor paper that makes up the sky background was "washed" in two drops of Tempting Turquoise ink (from a re-inker) and lots of water from an Aqua Painter.  While the paper dried (about 10 minutes), that's when I stamped, die cut, and prepped everything else.

I just LOVE how the inside of my card turned out too!  I stamped a sentiment and one of the borders two times from the Birthday Fiesta Stamp Set in two different colors--Crushed Curry and Temping Turquoise.  It shows of just how versatile this set is. 

I can't wait to share this lovable little llama's birthday wishes with a friend or family member!

 I hope you like this card as much I do, and I certainly hope that you consider adding the Birthday Fiesta Stamp SetFiesta Time Framelits, and other coordinating products to your shopping list, so you can have some birthday card-making fun too.  Purchase the bundle (stamp set + Framelits) for 10% savings!
