Well, I thought I would work on some birthday cards – we all need them right? Something, I don’t often do but should really do more of is using stamps to create the background images. So, I really should start doing this since I am a Designer Series Paper (DSP) hoarder. Yep, that’s me, I admit it. I’m a craft supply hoarder.
I was just stamping away – die cutting away, using the Balloon Adventure set. I got carried away and even made a few blunders. Which actually they turned out pretty good too. So just because they didn’t turn out they way you planed – don’t throw them away. You would have never guessed these two cards were blunders would you?
My oldest grandson’s birthday is coming up. With 4 1/2 granddaughters (my 5th is due at the end of February), my two grandson’s get the short end of the stick with my creativeness. I’ve said before – I wasn’t a real fan of the Balloon Celebration set when I first saw it in the catalog. Now, I can’t put it down. I’ve paired this card with a limited edition Sale-A-Bration set Hello. Hello is only available until February 15th!
I sat down and make a stack of cards using the Balloon Celebration and limited edition Hello Sale-A-Bration set. These are the cards I was struggling with in my Lost Mojo post. You can see my smudges, uneven stamping, finger printers, smears, you name it – you can see it. Thankfully my Granddaughters and dear friend won’t mind at all. Love that I have them in my life just for the fact they love me and my imperfect cards.
