I feel a party coming on!

11/30/20 Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and the weather isn’t too bad where you are! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #52 – November Anything Goes! I created a fun birthday card using a stamp and dies set I bought at a friend’s ‘de-stash’ event a year and a half ago. Like so many other stamps, dies and other crafty goodies in my stash… how can I own such excellent things for so long and not use them?!


This card was a blast. I love using large stamps because of the massive area to work on. I went with a bright color scheme, coloring the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I added an additional die cut party hat embellished with a white paint pen and a limeade Sprinkle. ;)


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the papers used on the front, and stamped the birthday sentiment on a rectangle die cut.


And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! Can’t wait to send it to somebody, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Oh Leslie, this is gorgeous, so clear and a bold design, I would have bought it too! I have to be honest, tho. At first sight, I guess because of the cool way you folded the card, I thought it was the cover of a 4×6 photo album! haha Which would be an AWESOME cover for one. But definitely a fab birthday card. Enjoy November in your new digs! XOX
