It's a party! This stamp set was new last year and I liked it so right away I ordered it and sent it to my friend in Georgia where Ted was suppose to be going in a few weeks, that was last fall and because of a change of schedule Ted did not go back until late spring so my stamp set sat in Georgia for months and of course I did not want to purchase it again because I knew it was there.
So when this stamp set and I got in the same place I quickly put it together to play with it. This card was one of my creations. It was created for my Hands On class last month. I used Not Quite Navy, Daffodil Delight and the new paper Summer Smooches.
Most of this card was done with marker techniques. The Happy Birthday I used the technique of omitting. The stamp has flags that say "to you" that I left off this card. The balloons are colored with markers so they all have a different color and punched with a large circle punch. The present used both of these techniques, I omitted the rest of the gifts and colored the ribbon a different color. This rectangle is easy to create with punches. First stamp the image close to the edge of your cardstock, then using a small sqaure punch, punch the image with part of the square punch hanging off the cardstock edge. Now glue the stamped image to the edge of the color frame you want leaving a small edge of the frame color showing then using the large square punch frame in your image and punch. Now you have a rectangle image using square punches.
